Checked in at last minute due to bad booking across the road. Needed a shower to find shower head broken. They replaced it promptly. Phone and TV did not work and despite repeated request/ it was not fixed. Although the pool and facilities were good this was not a five star service. Receptionist did not even say a word on...

Stayed here for a week early July on a Thomas Cook package. Unfortunately there is a room marketing difference on the TC website, but not the hotels fault and as it was at capacity no correction could be made. The hotel is fabulously located, just off a slim shingle beach and about 20 minute’s walk into Sami where there is... More

I'm a travel agent who booked 2 couples for 3 nights at this resort – done 3 months in advance, fully paid, and confirmed in writing. The day before check-in, I received an e-mail from the booking company that "due to unforeseen circumstances" both reservations had been canceled. I later learned that the resort contacted the booking company - they... More

We spent a week here in June. The hotel was very nice and comfortable, not sure that I would give it the 4.5 stars it has been rated at but it was nice. It is small, has a spa, bar, dining and a pool. It really depends on what you are looking for in a holiday - we liked that... More

We stayed here from the end or Jjne for 1 week and apart from a really poor wifi network we thought the hotel, staff and more importantly the attitudes were first class. Reception guy Geroge was always helpful and smiling throughout, bar service for night caps was always a delight with staff always there to meet our needs. Pool service... More

We had a great stay at the Ionian in early June, the hotel is in a lovely location, rooms were very well equipped, comfortable and spacious with a great pool/sea/Ithaca view. We found all the staff to be super friendly, polite and helpful. We were only b&b and must admit we didn't get round to eating in the hotel at... More

We stayed at Ionian Emerald resort for 10 days last month. Upon arrival we were met by the guy on reception who informed us that our room (Deluxe sea view) was not available and that we would have to go into a temporary room. He told us that because the gentleman who was in our room had gone to hospital... More

The hotel was very nice, clean, modern, and quiet. The staff couldn't do enough. Very friendly and helpful. Bed the usual hard mattress you generally get in Greece, they gave me an extra duvet to place on top of mattress and a softer pillow, perfect! Food was very nice. They have a laundry service free of charge which was useful... More

Stayed at this hotel in beautiful Kefalonia for 10 days from early June. The hotel is lovely and clean with beautiful views across Sami Bay to Ithaca. All the staff were very helpful and friendly from the time we arrived to the time we left. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Also being a small hotel the friendly atmosphere... More

This hotel came highly recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. When we first walked into our room we had the most beautiful view out over the turquoise sea across to the sister Island of Ithaca. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were amazing, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location was... More
