Very very nice people with the warmest welcome..! Altough the hotel is not the most modern of the island, hospitallity weighs more, and that's wat you get here. It's also situated in the centre of the Island, wich makes it great to explore different things on Kefalonia. Offcourse you need a car to get around...

We come every summer in this wonderful place run by a jewel of a family. Despite familiar and very very warm, the management is nothing less than perfect and totally professional. Never had any issue in over ten years. We just love them. Also Sami is strategically placed to enjoy the best beaches of the island. For those who really... More

Stayed at this Hotel with my two sons from 02/08/14 to 06/08/14 On arrival at the Hotel we were greeted with an incredibly warm welcome by Marianne and Yannis, not to mention a drink on the house. It was immediately apparent that this husband and wife team genuinely cared about their guests experiences at the hotel, and as it transpired,... More

If you are going to Kefalonia, and want a lovely hotel, right beside the beach, with the most amazing views, and the warmest hospitality, then look no further. My wife and 15 yo daughter loved it. Even before we arrived, all arrangements were easy. We booked our own flights (Ryan Air !!!) . The hotel recommended a hire car company... More

Never have we been greeted so warmly at any hotel before. Even before check-in, welcoming glasses of ouzo and a mapped explanation of all the local attractions by Yiannis. EVERY staff member was all attention and smiles. Rooms are basic European - efficient and scrupulously clean. Good Greek breakfast buffet, pristine swimming pool, pool bar open til midnight. Also, Ping-Pong... More

My boyfriend and I arrived late in the evening with the last flight (it is 30 min taxi ride circa from the airport) and were greeted with a drink and given an introduction to the possible places we could see on the whole island. The hotel was spotless clean, all the staff were friendly and helpful and it really felt... More

This is a must every year. We love the hotel and family. Always the warm welcome and the "at home" feeling. You can relax by the pool all day. You can swim in the sea just outside the hotel. You can walk into town along the beach path(15-20 mins.) or have a taxi for reasonable cost or take your hire... More

The welcoming I received from Yiannis and Marianna was just like the meeting of old friends. From the start I felt very much at home. Perikles, another member of the family kept me entertained at the pool bar. At breakfast Elleanna and Soula greeted each guest with Kalimera. Violetsa who cleaned my room always greeted me. My room was very... More

As some of the prior reviews said, this is not a brand new 5 star hotel. It is a 3 star hotel with a lot of heart and warmth. I know that sounds sappy, but, trust me, in this hotel you will feel like you are being taken care of each and every day. We arrived about 11 p.m. on... More
