Hotel was nice and clean, the grounds were beautiful and was in a smashing location in terms of the beach. However the location in terms of site seeing and getting around is not the best, unless you're 23 and can hire a car, unlike my girlfriend and I. The room was a good size, didn't have a double bed but... More

Grounds very pretty, room very basic and shabby. Bathroom shabby. Pool area in dire need of a make-over. Service at pool bar - worst ever. Food in restaurant - what was there was okay but not much of a selection, snacks consisted of cakes !!!!!! Thought I had booked 4 star........more like 2 star.. Entertainment......... What entertainment.

Didnt know what to expect from reading previous reviews, it seemed a mixed bag. We went with a teenager in May half term holidays on an all inclusive basis. We were very suprised at how quiet it was, but it was the same all over the island, there were only about 40 people in the hotel. I think alot of... More

The location of this hotel is the one thing that no reviewer deny. It faces south on the peninsular of the island and the beach is a real sun trap. Long stretches of sand, quiet, and water warm enough to swim in. Most rooms had a sea view, and the views in the morning are unforgettable. Beautiful Xi beach is... More

My sister in law booked this one for the family. It's not my kind of place but I can see the appeal if you just want a beach and a non descript place to stay. The rooms were modern and clean. The pool was big and the kids loved it. The food, well, let's just say it left something to... More

Once more we travelled with trepidation. I chose this holiday largely on convenience of flights. After booking I became aware of the comments such as sewage smells, cold food, one small glass of wine, beach sand and mud, hotel bar not open. I did wonder, but was too cowardly to mention to my wife and hoped for the best. As... More

After reading the previous reviews we were worried about our 2week break at this hotel. We had already asked for an upper floor room and thankfully it was on the first floor not overlooking the pool. The room was nice. The best beds I have ever had in Greece. Shower was a bit naff but it worked & we had... More

Just got back from spending a week a the "Cephalonia Palace" I stayed between 23rd - 30th Sept. After reading loads of reviews on TA from everything from 'terrible' to 'excellent' and little in between, I was slightly concerned by some of the reviews. however I decided as per my travels previously to go with an open mind. Whilst everyone... More

The hotel is certainly NOT a 3* but we were more than happy with the location, pool and surrounding gardens, both bars, restaurant (apart from the slight ramp which appears to be due to the extension ), food which was good quality and choice. ALL the Staff were EXCELLENT. ...! HOWEVER:- As with other comments the rooms are basic and... More
