I found Olive Bay Hotel at a desperate mood to escape from Lefkada island towards a nearby destination (Kefalonia) due to unpleasent stay (will describe in another review). I was totally pleased by all choices, the island, the location, the hotel, the management. Olive Bay Hotel, not really a hotel as there was not breakfast or restaurant facilities is remarkably...

Beautiful location, lovely clean, modern, spacious room with an amazing view from the balcony. The little town was charming with everything you could possibly need. A bakers to buy fresh bread every day, a bank with ATM, travel agents, car and bicycle hire, 2 little supermarkets, loads of lovely tavernas and restaurants. You can take boat trips and ferries to...

First time in Kefalonia, but not last, thanks to this lovely hotel. Clean, quite, well equiped, centrally located in the nice village of Agia Efemina. About 20 minutes drive to Myrtos and Antisamos beaches. Whatever you need within a walking distance. Don't look any further, this is the place to spend great time on the island.

We spent a week at Olive Bay Hotel In June and couldn't fault it. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you wanted for a comfortable stay. The views were breathtaking and we spent many evenings just sat on our balcony taking it all in and watching the boats with a few glasses of wine. The Amalia was lovely and... More

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay at Olive Bay Hotel in the lovely village of Agia Efimia. The owner's daughter manages the reception and is extremely friendly and helpful, offering free espressos and homemade cake. The hotel is comfortable and has beautiful sea views, located only 50 meters from a small secluded beach where we went swimming every morning.... More

We stayed here in July 2015 for a week. The sea view was amazing and it was a two minute walk to the local tavernas and shops. Amalia who checked us in was very helpful and a great source for information. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable.

An excellant small family run hotel in a superb position with fantastic sea views. Amalia was so helpful from the beginning of our stay until the end, giving us local information and ordering our taxis for us. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel at all times. I would thoroughly recommend The Olive Bay to... More

The Olive Bay Hotel was exactly what we hoped it would be: spotlessly clean, stunning views, well-equipped and in an excellent location. Amalia is a friendly and helpful host and we were very comfortable in our room. The hotel is well-situated to walk to the tavernas and shops of Agia Efimia and we loved the little swimming beach situated directly... More
