Set near the tranquil village of Svoronata the Olive Grove provides excellent rooms at reasonable prices. The swimming pool is ample and the bar area is laid back. Food is provided but sometimes they have to send out for it so most people sample the local delicacies at the nearby local tavernas. My only gripe would be the lack of... More

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful week at the Olive Grove Studios, and now cannot wait to return! We booked two adjacent studio apartments. Both had small private balconies, en suite facilities and air-con available for a small extra cost. Basic but clean and functional, an ideal base for exploring the island. The complex itself is...

Very quiet. Lovely grounds. Pools are fab. Great for kids. Probably only about 20 rooms so small. Cleanliness in all respects is very good. Limited food range means more like a snacks menu but can get food delivered in. Friendly staff. Only 10 minutes taxi from the airport (€15). All beaches are very good but a good walk time which...

We booked a week's holiday as a late deal at a good price. In comparison to the price the overall holiday was excellent in terms of facilities and quality. There's plenty of other places in Greece where you pay more for less quality. The olive grove is in a picturesque, rustic setting. The rooms are basic but kept clean. The... More

We stayed at Olive Growe Hotel for one week. It was a good experience in what we were seeking. Not crowded. Nice surroundings in an area of olive-, orange-, fig- and nut trees. The sound of birds and crickets. Nice rooms and pool-area. Recommended.

Arrived 19th June, location as described in previous reviews. Warm welcome from Katrina, Maria and Georgina. Room allocation as requested, good value low cost accomodation. Bedding and towels changed every 3rd day. Off the beaten track but within walking distance of a few good restaurants.If it is a lively night out you want this is NOT the place for you... More

Second time at olive grove and still as nice, a little sad to not have seen Darius the barman as he did make our holiday last year. The apartments are typically Greece, a little worn in places but very clean also linen and towels are whiter than white and changed every day. Staff very friendly and nothing is a trouble... More

We stayed here in 2008 and loved it. Great for couples as a 'base' to explore from (would recommend hiring a car) kefalonia is such a beautiful and unspoilt island with such friendly locals and the olive grove is a traditional Greek gem. Highly recommended, basic but great if you're on a budget as you can save some money by... More

This was my first time to Greece in over 20 years and I can't help asking "Why have I not been before now?" We booked very last minute, the day before we travelled, although we had done some research and opted for the Olive Grove and I'm very pleased we did. Let's get one thing straight, if you're looking for... More

We haven't been to Greece for over 15 years and had never been to Kefalonia before so we weren't quite sure what we would be getting after booking this holiday last minute. It seemed so cheap that we were worried it might be too good to be true. It wasn't. After a 5 minute taxi ride from the airport we... More
