A great base for exploring the island and I think one that I will return to in the future. Just as you would expect, traditional Greek accommodation that is maintained by the family. Nothing is too much trouble for Makis who can arrange pretty much anything and everything, very informative about what to do and where to go if asked.... More

The hotel is located right next to Sami the third largest town on the island. The hotel service was exceptional and Makis and his family work around the clock to provide an excellent service and nothing is too much, Makis is a very friendly approachable and lovely man with a service you cannot fault, he makes you feel welcome from...

We have just returned from a weeks holiday. A fabulous, beautiful location which I would recommend to any family wanting to travel to Kefalonia. Sami is an ideal spot - less touristy than Lassi and perfect for families. The Athina beach hotel is a lovely family run hotel with lots of character! Feels like a family run 2/3 star Greek... More

We have just returned from a week at the Athina which exceeded our expectations. We had a choice of two rooms and had a large room with a large balcony overlooking the gardens and back of the hotel. The air con was fantastic and the rooms were kept very clean and serviced daily with clean towels provided. We had a... More

What a delightful hotel! We stayed here for a week in July and it was great. makis is committed to ensuring that all his guests have a good holiday and although initially I thought our assigned room was small it was actually pefect. Very cool and also had air conditioning. Being able to use the facilities of the 5 Star... More

We have just returned from our 2 week stay at the Athina through Thomas Cook. For £550 for a fortnight including flights in July it's hard to fault! We loved the holiday, and Makis was a very welcoming host. He remembers everyone's names and his family are also charming (special mention for his lovely Mum!). When we arrived, we were... More

We stayed for a week as a part of a package holiday courtesy of the nice people at Easyjet. Its slightly out of Sami and to be honest, if you are driving its a little difficult to find and not well signposted. The hotel is clean with a large breakfast room, two terraces and a bar. The rooms that we... More

Friendly, polite and cooperative but in the same time old hotel, mix and match, terrible bathrooms, no safety (windows do not close) poor breakfast. The owner also owns the next door 'five star; hotel and when he sees that you are not happy with Athina, proposes a 'bargain' price and sends you to the next door one. Athina is good,... More

Athina Beach is about as good as it gets for the money. It's smart, clean, comfortable and well-equipped plus the views across the Ionian are first class. As a bonus you can use the pools at the neighbouring – and much more expensive – Ionian Emerald for free. But what you'll really notice is the length owner Makis goes to... More
