We booked the holiday through Thomson wanting a good base for a relaxing holiday on a bed and breakfast basis. I am pleased to say we got exactly that.Our room was on the ground floor next to the well kept pool area which has plenty of sunbeds.
The rooms are very basic but kept very clean by the staff who clean the rooms daily and change bedding / towels once in the week. Two single beds were provided with adequate storage for clothes. A fridge and some very basic cooking equipment is also provided. Air con for the week was 35 Euro with a further 12 Euro for the safe.
Breakfast provided at the pool bar was good with bread , cheese , cereal and coffee.
We were leaving late on the Sunday and the owner very kindly provided us with a room to shower and freshen up without charge .
We had decided to try different restaurants for lunch and evening meal and can recommend the following:
APOSTOLIS - Great welcome and service - excellent Moussaka
SIROCO - great salads, pizza and Kefalonian meat pie
OLD VILLAGE - really good beef stifado and Lamb Kleftico
AQUARIUS - tasty sea bass and garlic prawns
The water taxi from Skala to Katelios is great fun and an exiting way to get to a different resort. It costs 30 Euro return for two persons.
The Captain Vangelis boat trip to Fiscardo and Lake Melisanna is well worth the 35 Euro price. It is very well organised , safely run and is an excellent day out. If you want to sit on the top deck get there early.
Overall a very good holiday. Makis Studios are ideal for a no frills quiet relaxing holiday in a very nice resort. Will return at some point in the future.
