We are one of the happy group of return guests to this lovely little hotel just atop of Paradise Beach-and Paradise is what this gorgeous little family run hotel offers. Spotlessly clean, every care taken by the family to make your stay comfortable and peaceful. Just love it!

There is one reason why everyone that visits the Gonatas keeps coming back...the fantastic location, the wonderful friendly service that Nicki, Maria and Mamma provide and the spotlessly clean rooms. This was our second visit and it proved every bit as perfect as our first. Set just above a beautiful small pebble beach and situated a gentle 10 minute stroll... More

We arrived at Hotel Gonatas in Agia Efimia on Tuesday 26th May at about 5pm and were immediately welcomed by the owner, Nikki. We were given room 40, a lovely room on the 2nd floor, overlooking the beautiful Ionian sea, we were very impressed! It was a large room but had a small bathroom. It was typically Greek, small shower... More

This is the most friendly hotel you could wish for with many of the guests returning multiple times which says it all. The only reasons I haven't given this 5, which may seem churlish is that our room although lovely with full sea views had 1. a very small bathroom which you had squeeze to get in between the sink...

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Gonatas and it remains brilliant. Nikki and her family are amazing, nothing is ever too much trouble and she makes you feel instantly at home. In fact, it's like being part of the family! The Gonatas is a great, family run hotel in a fantastic location. The views from our... More

Our first trip to Kefalonia exceeded all our expectations and the Hotel Gonatas was a key part of that. Nikki and her family gave us the most warm welcome and the hospitality continued throughout the week. There is nothing pretentious about the place. It's a small, quiet family-run hotel that has all you need for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Most... More

We are just enjoying our first night back at the Gonatas. This is the fourth time here and we just love it. Thank you Nikki and mama for a warm welcome. The hotel is in a beautiful setting with excellent restaurants very close by. A very relaxing holiday indeed.

Small family run hotel; Nicki and her staff make you feel very welcome, nothing is too much for them. Beautiful view from the slightly elevated location. Hotel is simply furnished compared to current "4 star" accommodation, but this just adds to the charm of the place, you have everything you need (including WiFi if you must stay in-touch with the...

First time ever to the island and this hotel. Nicki, Maria and Nicki's Mum cannot simply do enough to make your stay very enjoyable. We found our bedroom to be very clean and spacious with clean towels and bedding changed every day. Our breakfasts were beyond the continental breakfasts with pastries, cakes, choice of cereals etc and also Nicki would... More

We returned to the Gonatas this year with friends and were very pleased to see that everything we fell in love with before is still there from the welcoming smile right through every aspect of the holiday. The cleanliness is first class and the peace and tranquility is beyond priceless. Nicki, Mamma and Maria work tirelessly to ensure all of... More
