Just come back from our second holiday here at the Nine Muses, had a fantastic holiday, with our 2 daughters. Great to see all the same staff from 2 years ago all smiling with welcoming arms.
Just looking to return in October miss this place.

This was our third visit to Kefalonia and the 9 Muses. Each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is pitched at just the right level. All the 3 rooms we have had have been great, spacious, clean and relaxing with very comfortable beds. People go on about wifi but I really enjoyed not chasing to see where i can find the best signal and just clocked in to use the hotels computer when we wanted to contact people and check news and weather etc; infact i found it really sad watching people sat at tables not talking to each other but playing on their mobiles.. The food for all meals is consistant and tasty and for us having bed and breakfast was great to have the option to go where we wanted. We are beach people rather than pool so to be able to walk across the road, which isn't too busy, and chill on a beautiful beach was bliss. Evening swims are a must :-)
The island has a typical Greek feel and we loved the laid back feeling. We have had hire cars for long periods and visited most of the island which is interesting and well worth taking a pair of comfy shoes to do some walking such as up to Old Skala and the ruins up there.
The staff are very hard working, especially (as most people say) Athena who continually runs around with a smile on her face and is a joy to see. Staff at the Vespa Bar are all friendly and helpful and always remember your face and what you drink. Amanda at the cocktail bar is a friendly familiar face and has given us a lot of advice on local facilities including the phone chitty which you can buy at the town for 5 euros and get about 5 hours of phone calls to home!
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel not only for all it's friendly, helpful staff from cleaners, groundsmen, bar staff, reception staff and manager but also the local facilities and access to them.
The only complaint is the high cost for the safe in your room.
We recommend the Sunshine Cruise that Thompsons arrange with Captain Makis as it is a great fun day out.
Thank you to everyone at 9 Muses for a great holiday again. Highly recommend it.

Go ahead - book with confidence. This is just about the best hotel my family and I have ever been to – fantastic! We stayed 2 weeks half board in July 2014. Spotlessly clean, superb generous portions of excellent Greek food (English too if you wish), lovely friendly staff and the hotel is in a fantastic position - literally a stone’s throw from the beach and sea. Ideally placed for a 10 minute stroll into the busyish resort of Skala, to get a boat taxi up or down the coast, or to to catch the glass-bottomed boat further afield. Our first time, but met guests who were staying for their, 3rd, 5th and even 7th times!! Our BIG thanks to the staff – Nico, Emma, the 2 Manos’s, Takis and Evangelina who were all so wonderfully helpful. Also Athena who never seemed to stop for a second but always made time to chat and help when we wanted. Absolutely loved it! 10/10

Room Tip: Upper floor rather than ground, personally - but all are great

We enjoyed our holiday in 2013 we came back for a second year. This is something we've never done before but we loved it and the fact it's an adult focused hotel we decided to go back. We weren't disappointed. All staff are brilliant extremely friendly and helpful. The remembered us and welcomed us back like old friends.

We loved the village free of the accommodation, it allows you to relax but also feel part of a community. I liked the fact their are two pools and they had very different feel. The main pool is where most people usually head for but it you like it a little more peaceful the upper pool is the place to go.

The only negative we could speak about is that during our week stay there were two wedding parties and one party seem to dominate the area around the main pool. It wasn't a problem we just relocated the the top pool.

Our evening would usually start with a cocktail at Avra bar with the lovely bar lady, Amanda. She's great and always ready to help or advise on ideas of where to visit or go for dinner. After a cocktail or two we would wonder into the town which is about 5 mins walk to discover another little restaurant that served fantastic food. We ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of time and the food was lovely there too. The added bonus of eating in the hotel restaurant is the entertainment. They host a Greek night, or the local celeb 'Holis' who has a good range of tunes for all. Both of which were fun.

A great holiday and I would recommend it to all couples.

This was our 2nd visit to the Nine Muses, as we liked it so much the first time. And we were not disappointed....if anything, it was slightly better,. Certainly the breakfast buffet was much improved....lots more choice, lovely fresh food and of course the service excellent. The staff seem to work such long hours, yet they are always cheerful, helpful and willing. The room is basic but very comfortable and clean. The shower was a bit half hearted, but adequate!! My sister and I will definitely go again. The location of the hotel is ideal....an easy walk to the restaurants, beach and shops.

Room Tip: Request a front facing room...better balconies

I cannot fault this hotel. It was the best hotel I have stayed in for the Greek islands and I have been to them about seven times. The beds were the most comfortable of any hotel I have stayed in. The layout was lovely - lots of coloured buildings set amongst courtyards fragrant with jasmine and other flowers. The staff fell over themselves to be helpful and friendly from the manager to the receptionists and waiting staff. We decided we wanted to stay another week but sadly they did not have room, however they found us a suite for two nights and this was pure luxury. It was set on two levels with two bathrooms, a gorgeously comfortable bed and three balcony or patio areas to sit at. Meals were delicious and served in their beautiful restaurant open to the sea. I would definitely go back here. I did not want to leave.

Room Tip: All the rooms appeared to be good. There are shutters to keep out the light and air conditioning is...
