We absolutely loved this hotel ! I would say probably the best views in Kefalonia (if you get the top floors). You still get an amazing view from the pool area but absolutely spectacular views if on the top floors. The super clean and simple bedrooms were just perfect for what we wanted! The staff are incredible and would help... More

Glad we chose the Gonatas Hotel. Family run, simple & in a beautiful quiet location. No screaming scooters or other passing traffic. Fantastic views. Only 10-15 mins walk from Agia Efimia where you'll find plenty of tavernas and a couple of bars - although we found the best place to eat was right across the road from the hotel (Paradise... More

Stayed in 2010. Had a restful week. Great family hotel. Stayed on floor level which was a bit basic. Breakfast Mediterranean style which us more than adequate. Felt able to approach personel if needed. Great little bay about 1/4 mile away with restaurants of all type! Also a great little beach across a minor road, Paradise Beach I believe it... More

My wife and I stayed in this Hotel for two weeks earlier this month. The staff are lovely and friendly and the rooms kept immaculately clean. The pool is very nice and clean and has enough sunbeds for the guests that choose to use them. Location wise there is a taverna at the bottom of the drive and the centre... More

Traditional Greek hotel, probably past it best as some areas are not utilized or neglected. The hotel offers very little facilities other your room, breakfast and the pool, but for me it was perfect. Bedding, room and all communal areas cleaned daily including pool and pool area. Breakfast were basic but enough and with plenty of gorgeous homemade cake. It... More

My husband and I returned to the Gonatas Hotel for a third time, the owner Nicki, her mama and the other staff made us very welcome, we now feel that we are part of the family. The hotel is quite basic but it does have air conditioning and it is spotlessly clean. The beds are changed every other day as... More
