We wanted a small hotel with pool, air con, near to the sea and a few restaurants but away from rowdy nightlife. Gonatas Hotel was absolutely perfect for our requirements. Set on a no- through road ( therefore very quiet) with stunning views across to Sami and Ithaca, it had everything we required. A very pleasant stroll into the small... More

as usual we were made incrdibly welcome by Nicky, and this year, her cousin, Maria. The hotel has been upgraded - the pool is better and the air conditioning works perfectly. The welcome is so warm, the baking for breakfast is so good and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spotlessly clean and of course the location is... More

Had a fab 10 night stay (2nd year) at this family run hotel. After initially being unhappy about being put into a ground floor room (20) next to the restaurant (as the hotel was fully booked), Nicky (without fuss) moved us up to the 2nd floor (room 36) the next morning - great views over to Ithaca and Sami. The... More

We returned from the Gonatas on the 9th August. It was our third Stay in beautiful Agia Efimia and each time leaving gets harder! We were made to feel like part of the family. Nicki does such a wonderful job and works so hard, always with a smile on her face and nothing is too much trouble. More than adequate... More

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
