I have just returned from an all inclusive week at the Cephalonia Palace with my mother and 17 year old son. I visited the island 22 years ago, loved it and was very excited to be returning, but when I read the reviews of the hotel and the location I was really worried. I expected a holiday nightmare scenario in... More

I honestly can't praise this hotel highly enough! I stayed with my partner for one week all inclusive at the end of August 2015, only got back home at ten o'clock last night and I'm here writing this at 8 am to tell everyone how amazing it was! We booked online through First Choice in April and flew with Thomson.... More

You get what you paid for not a five star hotel but we not pretending to be. Good service, problems sorted really fast. Great beach only walking distance away. Good variety of food. Found location fine to explore the rest of the island, we enjoyed the ferry ride to the more tourist area. We hired a car or used a... More

A lovely hotel in a fabulous location. Next to the beach with water sports on offer. I recommend the speedboat ride. Lovely pool suitable for people like us who want to swim, but also big enough for kids to enjoy. Food choice was excellent:fresh salads, meat and fish dishes all on offer.

My husband and I spent one week at the Cephalonia Palace Hotel on an all inclusive basis - 'palace it was not!' All inclusive it certainly was not! What a huge disappointment for our first holiday together 'child free'. On arrival just before 9.30pm they kept the restaurant open for us to eat having been travelling all day, I don't... More

Booked an all inclusive holiday for a week and I'm glad I didn't stay longer! At the time of the booking, First choice was advertising a nice hotel with Spa, gym, entertainment, close to the beach and choice of tours organised by Thompson. The plane was delayed for a couple of hours as they didn't have a pilot available (I'm... More

Beautiful hotel and location! Friendly staff who made us all feel so welcome! Lovely pool, with lots of sun lounges available for everyone and such funny evening entertainment! Lovely beach, with water sports, in easy walking distance... I enjoyed every single second and so did my family!

Recently returned from here. We went for the half board option and glad we did. The food for dinner was very limited and not many Greek dishes the tables were dirty with plates etc from previous people and we had to ask for the stuff to be cleared which the waiters took ages to do. As we went half board... More

Just returned from a weeks holiday, the room was basic but clean and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay! During our stay the noise at night was loud with kids running back and fourth the corridors and slamming doors. For an all inclusive package, the choice was very limited and there was no explanation that you need... More

Recently came back from a weeks stay here as a family of 6- the receptionists were generally polite and helpful and the maitre'd in the restaurant was courteous and welcoming although we were only ever offered one drinks round with our meal if we were lucky enough to get the waiters attention! Meals were ok with plenty of local cuisine.... More
