We went back for the third time to this very friendly hotel. We missed seeing Sonia this year as she has started a family back home - a little boy. Going slightly later this year the weather was in the 30-34 degrees every day. Niki, Mama and Maria could not be more helpfull. We have already booked 2015 there again... More

We hadn't stayed in this hotel since 2001, when Mr. Gonatas was running it, and were a bit concerned. However Nicki and her Mum (the same family) were absolutely lovely, warm and welcoming, always smiling. Views from the top floor are stunning over Sami Bay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was simple but well done, including... More

We have just returned from a two week stay in the Hotel Gonatas. This was our third trip to Kephalonia over the last 30 years and our first time in Agia Efimia. The Hotel is in the most perfect position. It is right in front of Paradise beach an apt name as it is picture postcard pretty and lovely spot... More

We have just got back from a fantastic week in Kefalonia we stayed at the Gontas where the staff were exceptionally friendly, where nothing was too much of a problem for them. Their mission I felt was to make us have the best holiday. Our room though small was clean and presented well for a Greek Hotel. The bathroom was... More

Returned 14th June after an 11 night stay. Hotel has a fantastic position overlooking the bay and Agia Efimias is a great resort to relax and unwind. Nicky and the staff were lovely and helpful in every respect. However the ground floor room we were given was very tired and needed an update especially the bathroom. There is a nice... More

We have been going to Gonatas Hotel every year for the last 6 and we love it! However, next year we will stay elsewhere in the village. I put the reason for this in the greedy lap of Thomas Cook! They know full well that a lot of the people that stay there do so year in year out and... More

We absolutely loved Kefalonia but the Hotel Gonatas just did not do it for us. It may have been the fact that as it was only available to UK guests and we are used to a more varied clientele or that it was just a wee bit too basic, for a Hotel. The Greek Islands are our favourite destination and... More

Hotel Gonatas is a good base. It is clean and tidy and the ladies that run it are very friendly and really look after all of there guests. We has a ground floor room which did not have the views that the upper floors have and it had the smallest shower/toilet room we have ever had on any holiday but... More

Spent a week in this model well appointed quiet greek family run hotel. Clean well appointed rooms with balconies overlooking the sea and the island of Ithica.. Good and varied breakfast, simple lunches to order. Restful but the pool was fine and the welcome wonderful. Always found space on the pretty beach just the other side of the road with... More
