Niko and Sophia have created a superb holiday experience at the Trapezaki Bay Hotel. On arrival you will be greeted like a family member and treated that way for your entire stay. If you like a quiet and relaxing holiday look no further.
Comfortable beds, spotlessly clean rooms, lovely home cooked traditional Kefalonian food from the restaurant; all in a setting that's straight out of a romantic novel are standard. Above and beyond that the friendly staff work together to make you feel like part of their extended family.
The hotel is suited to people enjoying a quiet and relaxing holiday. There are a couple of beaches within walking distance but you need decent mobility and fitness to get to them on foot, particularly in the hotter summer months. I would recommend hiring a car for at least part of your stay to get maximum benefit from your holiday (unless you are only interested in laying by the pool). However, Maria can help organise excursions to some of the popular tourist attractions if you don't wish to drive and the hotel offers great food, in a superb setting at reasonable prices. Niko will provide some entertainment ...comedy, acrobatics and music all in his repertoire.
St Thomas beach my personal local favourite ....sandy with rocky outcrops great for snorkelling.....Would also recommend Mounda beach near Scala if you have transport -also sandy quieter and spacious but please don't spoil it for the wildlife!!! Many other popular beaches get extremely busy and are stoney....Anti Samos beach for example looks great on photos but simply too busy.
Three turtles visit the fishing boats in Argostoli bay daily when the boats land their catch (we saw then around 10:30-11:00 )
The Olive Lounge restaurant got our top vote - get Maria to book you a table. Denise's on Trapezaki beach also very good and so is the hotels own restaurant....that said we ate at more ten places during our two week stay and never had a bad meal....Greeks really do food well;-)
Thanks to Niko, Sophia and all the staff at the TBH for making our stay perfect..We rarely return to a destination because there are simply too many places in the world we want to see...however, we do plan to return to Kefalonia and the Trapezaki Bay Hotel will be the place we stay.
