I cannot comment on the Hercules Apartments, which appear to get favourable reviews, but I do feel that the owners of this bar, in a super position right on the beach, really need to be spending some money on keeping their bar up to date. Upturned crates giving access to he beach really are not acceptable and the whole bar... More

Ahh, simply that .. a stone's throw from the lovely beach which is ideal for those with mobility issues like me. The sea is warm and shallow - perfect. The studios are lovely .. very old style Greek in that they have the basics, which is all you need isn't it? Third time here this July and we stayed in... More

Small apartment with nice sized balcony affording us a great sea view. Great location,a stone's throw from the beach and all the restaurants and taverna's. Katelios is one of those hidden gems. Demetrius and his wife were very friendly. Hercules studios offer basic accomodation, but is great value for money.

The actual name is Hercules Studios, and it provides small apartments with bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and a very tiny balcony. Our room was overlooking the backyard, nevertheless the area is green and the sea is right downstairs, cross the street. Some simple tavernas are just in front of the apartments. Kateltios is a quiet village, and the fish is tasty.... More

.. quite literally! We stayed in Kateltios last year and knew we'd found a gem of a resort. Despite having been to Kefalonia several times since 1986, last year was the first time spent at this resort. Mainly because it is flat, agricultural land, backed by mountains. The sea is shallow and warm ... perfect for my recuperation from a... More

We spent a week at the Hercules studios and couldn't have been more impressed. We were in the family room which meant our 21 month old had his own room and travel cot. We had our own balcony with a sea view - lovely for people watching. We will definately be returning next year.

I stayed in the Hercules this year again and was pleasantly surprised. The owner Dimitri and his wife have made over the apartments and they are lovely. Little flatscreen TV not that needed it - cooking facilities, all utensils and crockery it was lovely. The room was spotlessly clean and was kept that way weekly. I stayed for two months... More

Stayed in mid October, the weather was a bit mixed but didn't spoil our week. The studios were spotless and owners very friendly. We had a sea view and could hear the sea from our room, you are yards from the beach, sea and the best fish tavernas you could wish for.

We stayed in the Hercules Apartments in Katelios for a week at beginning of Sept 2009. Apartments were basic but clean and had everything we needed - no pool but the beach was just across the road - who needs one when the sea is that close?! Liked Katelios very much but it's quite sleepy - you'd probably run out... More
