Ok before I start we did have a good holiday, the majority of the issues we experienced were avoidable if the Thompson rep did his job properly. The staff at this hotel are excellent and the rooms are adequate and most importantly CLEAN. On arrival unfortunately our room wasn't ready although the hotel checked us in and gave us a... More

LOCATION If your after lively loads to do you will be disappointed. If you're here for chillaxing perfect! Great location right next to beach if you want the beach. Sunbeds down there cheap 20 euros for luxury beds for three plus brolly. Cheap seats are 3 euros each. Couple of bars on the beach too reasonable. Music pumping out full... More

Again to echo what others have said this hotel was disappointing given the price and the rating by Thomson. Our room was probably the most disappointing of all. We tried to have a romantic getaway but the room was drab and smelt very musty. One blessing was the air conditioning which worked perfectly. The pool area was nice, except for... More

Really disappointed with this hotel, not what we was expecting at all. The family room was tiny with bunk beds with a ladder that was not attached, not safe at all. Hard beds, 1 lumpy pillow each. The main bar was closed during our stay at beginning of August which only left the pool bar with not enough seats. Very... More

Just returned after 7 days stay with two kids (10,16). The room on the 2nd floor was spacious enough for the three of us and from the balcony we could see the pool, mountains, sea and beautiful sunrises. Cephalonia Palace Hotel is a real rest for the eyes, both when it comes to design, colors and setting. We lived close... More

Hmmm where to start? We went to Kefalonia for the first time in July and opted for Cephalonia Palace largely because it offered all inclusive and we have had some good AI deals in the past. It seemed from the tour operators website to be somewhere we could have a relaxing break as a couple and get away from it... More

Stayed ay The Cehalonia Paalce Hotel for 11 nights in July 2014. We are a family of 5 ( 3 children aged 16,13 and 10 years) The hotel is fairly dated but extremely clean and well maintained. The food is buffet style but great choice and very fresh. Fabulous location, a couple of minutes walk to Xi beach. The animation... More

Visited with 3 older teens. Lovely location. The beach is fantastic. Pay for sun beds but worth budgeting for. Issues with being given wrong room and lack of cold water but efficiently dealt with by thomson rep. Main complaint is that if you like good music and don't like bingo and the birdy song the evenings were no fun. Lovely... More
