From the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice. Hector kindly showed us to our room. No. 225 which was spotlessly clean with fantastic views from the balcony towards both the mountains and sea. Large rain shower, aircon and comfy bed and electric shutter blinds which helped keep the room cool and nice and dark to sleep.
Everywhere in the hotel is immaculate. Stunning pool area and the atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. Excellent staff who will do everything they can to help and give you advice on how to make the most of your Kefalonian holiday.
The hotel is situated amongst farm land and only a 10 minute walk to the beach front where you can find plenty of places to eat. We ate at the hotel one night in the Rose bud bistro which was very nice, very good Stifado. Just round the corner from the hotel is a great Greek Taverna which we ate at 4 nights out of the 7 Persa's highly recommend trying this. See my separate review.
We hired a Jimney from Venus car hire for 3 days. Pre booked via email through Costas. Great service excellent vehicles and only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Loved being able to go where we wanted when we wanted and you do need to get out and see the Island as kefalonia is beautiful.
Koroni beach is not far by car where the turtles nest and where you will find a great Hill Top Bar Sesto which also serves food which had amazing views and is very relaxing and worth a visit.
We would return to katelios and would most definitely stay at the Magnolia Hotel again.
