Stella and her family are so friendly, kind and hospitable. We were greeted like old friends. They are constantly on hand, giving advice about the island and offering delicious bits of food. Stella's cooking is fantastic - really tasty home cooked dinners every evening, great breakfasts in basket, with varied delights from savoury pancakes to freshly baked cakes, etc. The... More

I had no idea when I made the booking for a one night stay after a 9.15pm flight arrival, that this hotel would be such a gem. The first inkling came from Stella's reply to my email regarding transport from the airport: It was so friendly. Then after we landed, her husband was there to pick us up. Dinner at... More

Stella and her husband are honestly the nicest people you can hope to meet. They treated us like family, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We arrived late on the first day because we got lost as we made our way from the airport to the hotel. When we reached the hotel it was... More

We could not have been happier here. We stayed last October and still talk about it often. Stella and her Husband go out of their way to make you feel at home. She gave us a jar of her home made marmalade which was delicious and cooked us Mousaka on our last evening - I wish we'd eaten back at... More

This is a beautiful little hotel with perfect service and Great Hostess, Siora Stella. The rooms were clean. Breakfast in a basket is a "great-morning -surprise"..The pool and food service were as they should be! I would definetely stay here again. The travellers should just take notice, that the hotel is very close to the island's airport...but I didn't mind... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Dendrolivano as we were getting the ferry to Ithaca the next day. Siora Stella is a little bit crazy but really welcoming and all the staff are really pleasant and friendly. The food was brilliant and our son really enjoyed playing in the pool. One thing I would add is that Siora Stella got... More

Even I live permanently on Kefalonia island, I had never thought that something like that could have been exist here. The first time I visited it, I felt immediately the hospitality of the place. A sense of like being at your home, the beautiful surroundings, the extremely clean pool and the bar which is full of homemade sweets and deserves... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dendrolivano means "Rosemary" in Greek and is an apt name for our hotel given that the entire property is lined with Rosemary; resulting in that the scent in the air compliments the beautiful natural scenery. It is a family-run business and aims to treat each guest as a visiting family member; home cooked meals, traditional recipes, natural products, free bicycle rentals, a playground for our younger guests, a barbecue, a pool and many more amenities that will create a complete experience while visiting our island. The Greek Coffeehouse located on the grounds, under the shade of our olive tree enhances the Greek experience. Everything we do is guided by three Greek values: Hospitality. Simplicity. Tradition. ... more   less
