Good location, but up a small hill, but you do then get the benefit of the views. Welcomed by not just water, but tea, coffee, milk, jams etc. Also available in the reception area. There was a book exchange too with lots of choice. Balconies have umbrellas, the hotel will provide for the beach too. This is not a hotel... More

The hotel room has the neccesary facilities including a small kitchen so that you can enjoy a breakfast at the balcony. Amalia was a great host, very friendly and helpful. Free parking is... More

First of all Greece and the Greek people are warm and kind. Here our welcome was typical Greek, with a young girl Amala greeting us with a warm smile, and giving us all the information we needed for our stay. Little things like coffee in the lobby, coffee and tea in the room, chairs and umbrellas for the beach, and... More

We stayed here for 10 days in June 2014, we have been Kefallinia several times before and Agia Efimia once. The Olive BAY Hotel is small (about 18 rooms), family run and delightfully situated just outside the town with stunning views over the Ionian Sea to Sami. The rooms are air conditioned studio apartments with a small kitchenette area which... More

We came here for part of our honeymoon and it was perfect! Lovely hotel with very nice and helpful staff. The hotel is in a great location, and our view of the ocean was stunning. We drank coffee on our private balcony in the morning, and walked to the beach immediately in front of the hotel for an afternoon swim.... More

This was our first visit to Greece and we were very fortunate to have selected these apartments for our accommodation. Our room was spacious and had everything we could wish for in order to cook and make a cuppa!, like a home from home. Exceptionally clean with fantastic sea views and being only a short walk to the harbour and... More

We stayed here for 10 days in early October 2013. All the apartments face the sea and so have great views but the 1st an 2nd floors have the best views as they see over the row of houses in front of the apartments to the bay. Initially we had 4 days in Katelios in the south of the island... More

The apartment is spacious and kept very clean. All the amenities we needed were available. I use a manual wheelchair which my wife pushed me up and down the slope to the main road. There are 4 steps to get into the lobby and a lift to the two higher floors. As I can transfer and walk short distances the... More
