5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Just arrived back last night from a weeks stay in kefalonia , our first time there and certainly won't be our last and we will be staying at the melidron again. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we could not have been happier , the way you are treated makes you feel like you're part of the family . It's clean , the pool and bar area are fantastic , you don't have loads of fuss getting sun beds ..it's just great . I challenge anybody to not have a wonderful holiday here

we stayed at the Melidron 3 July for 2 weeks...Fantastic holiday, one of our best, the Melidron was well above our expectations, spotless...good food...good entertainment...great chill feel to the place. Always plenty of sunbeds..good size pool..free towels..free air con, the breakfast had everything from bacon,eggs sausages,honey fruit coffee tea,cereal, and yogurts. The owner Zefie is one of gods angels, if you meet her you will understand..she can't do enough for you, Theo her brother works the bar..he is a great guy to talk to..so funny..also very considerate...Roula the chef is...well.....just crazy!! full of fun and laughter, also a good dancer..so beware she will get you up. Cremina another member of the staff will dazzle you with her smile as she hands you your breakfast tray in the morning..It was our first time to Skala, loved the place deffo go back to Melidron...Got to mention captain Kirk and his side kick Val, had some great meals and laughs with these guys..also like to give a big thumbs up to magic Johnny and his wife, also marathon man & wife.. Chris and Trude...he had me dying with laughter...if any of you guys are reading this..it's a big thanks from Terry and Cheryl

We have been to Skala eleven times this was the first time at the Melidron what a gem we could not find fault in any form we stopped for a week commencing 17th July we were given a family room at rear top floor oceans of space and very quiet and peaceful with free aircon.The beds round the pool were well cushioned and had free towels and beds were always available.The breakfasts were a joy alternating fried eggs and omelettes ,bacon boiled and scrambled eggs ,ham and cheese ,tomato ,cereals,fresh fruit and yoghurt plus toast.The family and staff running the hotel were the most friendly and helpful we have ever encounted.

Room Tip: Higher floors at rear are very quiet ours was A24

the best hotel we have ever stayed in in 10 years of visiting the Greek Islands! It cannot be faulted! Zefie Theo Roula & all the lovely staff make you feel so welcome, its like home from home!
The rooms are spacious , very clean & well equipped, with FREE aircon!! Gorgeous thick clean white towels adorn your beds in all sorts of animal shapes! We had B3, a first floor room overlooking the pool area, wonderful views! The pool is lovely, the sunbeds are large & comfy,& you get lovely towels. The surrounding gardens & grounds are well maintained & lovely on the eye. Then theres Roula!! The crazy great cook! Her food is scrummy! You wont get a better salad or pizza on the island! Breakfast is great, cereals fruit,yogurt,jams & honey ham cheese tomatoes, sausages bacon,& eggs 3 different ways! Such a great atmosphere at the bar day or night,& its a must to try theos concoctions!!All in all its 5 stars from us for everything!! Will be sure to return soon!!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

We have just arrived in Melidron greece and have been welcome by a free drink by the chef everything is going nicely just got into our hotel we have got a pattio and are on the bottom of one of the apartments, the one above us is still free ;). Facing pool its lovely and quiet. Breakfast today was boiled eggs,toast,bacon,rice crispys,coca pops, a load of jams and mini crousons stuffed with chocolate filling! Pool is great, its got a slighty infinty pool touch. Great for kids with the slide coming out 5 days of the week, even i had a go :). Cant wait to spend the rest of our holiday here. Be prepared for hot weather 36 degrees out here!

Room Tip: every room is great but if you want one facing the pool or sea it might be an idea to ask for it a c...

This was our first stay at The Melidron in the beautiful town of Scala and it certainly won't be our last. This is a first class hotel with first class service and staff. The pool area is lovely with comfortable sun beds and plush towels provided. The pool itself is fab, just the perfect size if you just want a dip to cool off or a leisurely swim. The gardens are simply beautiful and well maintained. The room we had was immaculate and very well equipped, providing everything needed to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The cleaning staff do an excellent job and even make an art form out of displaying the clean towels! The air conditioning worked perfectly and was very welcome in the hot weather! The food is excellent and breakfast was a veritable feast which included fresh fruit, cereal, Greek yogurt, eggs of all kinds, toast, juice and coffee as well as a meat and cheese selection. Zeffi (apologies if misspelt), Theo, Rula and all the team are so kind and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They learned our names very quickly and greeted us every day, making us very welcome indeed. The hotel is a very short distance from the beach and local restaurants and therefore in a perfect spot. If this hotel consistently maintains such high standards it will to continue to succeed and excel above all others. I look forward to returning again and again,

Room Tip: There is a separate annex which has some lower ground rooms if you prefer a cooler room but we had a...
