Fantastic hotel! The rooms and studios are great, but we especially like the pool area and the garden. Great location, friendly and helpful people, Mrs. Stella, Mr. Labros, Litsa and Jerry. I recommend it 100%, would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Kefalonia!

I cannot tell you how much lovely this place is! You need to experience it! Hubby and I arrived late at night and were picked up at the airport- which is about 5-10 mins drive (depending on who is driving ;) - the road is narrow in some places) from the hotel. This service was included at no extra cost.... More

Just came back after a10 days vacation in stupendous Kefalonia. This time my husband and I have chosen to stay in a different kind of hotel as we normally did. So we've selected Dendrolivano because of the "home away" feeling that other reviewers have described. In fact that is exactly what you will feel as soon as you go in.... More

For peace, relaxation and a taste of Kefalonian home cooking then Dendrolivano is for you. It is located near to the airport and you can see the aircraft take off from your balcony but we liked that. My family and I stayed for ten nights in August and really enjoyed our stay. Lavros and Stella, the owners, work really hard... More

The warmest greeting of the seven places we stayed on Kefalonia, which set the tone for the rest of the stay. This is not a big hotel. It is not a 5-star boutique. It's a place where you're made to feel at home, where the owners are modest but clearly proud of their hotel and grounds, proud of each other... More

We found out this hotel while googling on Kephalonian food. Although we booked it with some hesitations regarding the location and services, we were positively surprised as Hotel Dendrolivano is a small paradise in the island. Mr. Lambros and Mrs. Stella made us feel like family and the environment was so friendly that it felt like being home. Everything was... More

I stayed 12 days in this hotel with my two daughters. The studios are very clean and have a nice terrace. THere is a beautifull garden with a swimming pool and bar, and restaurant with delicious meals! Stella is a very good cook! In the morning they bring your breakfast to your studio with selfmade pastry. What you cannot see... More

I was with my family and we had a great time. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the staff is very helpful and friendly. You feel very familiar as they are always willing to help and accommodate every wish. The children enjoyed immensely. Really beautiful island, the beach and the sea is wonderful. Definitely recommend!
