Was just browsing trought Tripadvisor and my eye fell on Athina Beach Hotel...Sweet memories from June 2011.. Never had such a warm welcome in a tourist accomadation... Makis has the capability to make a silent breakfast morning (Greek style), were all couples are on themselves at their table, everybody talk to each other..about the wonderful island and his hidden places..and...

'Spent our late summer holiday at this lively hotel. On arrival Makis, the owner, gives a warm welcome and a free drink - and that is before you even know which room you will be staying in! The rooms are definitely not generous but that doesn't matter when your evenings are spent in the bar where Makis is both DJ... More

Well what can I say that hasn't been said in previous reviews. Makis is an absolute star and made us feel like one of the family, which wasn't hard as most of his family were around and also made us feel at home. The hotel is basic but clean and has the added bonus of the facilities from its sister... More

Makis and family are the best hosts ever! Me and my daughter Izzy couldn't have had a better time. Rooms are small, but clean, and when you're out all the time, it's no problem. Lovely walk to town - and it's nice being out of Sami town. Really worth hiring a car to explore a bit - and Makis will... More

a plain ,clean and very friendly place to stay with the added advantage of access next door to a superb pool in the adjoining resort. A short walk along the prom to the right to Sami and to the left a few steps to a lovely restaurant on the beach. Super bakers shop behind to buy picnic things from. Don't... More

As a couple desperately in need of a holiday, we thankfully stumbled upon the Athina Beach after several hours trawling the Internet and booked just ten days prior to departure. After what felt like a very long journey (don't fly from Gatwick if you live in Exeter), we received such a warm and friendly welcome from Makis and Athina (his... More

We stayed at the Athina in the first week of June and had a great time. It is family run and nothing is too much trouble for them. Most of the guests had been returning for many years and Makis the owner was a total star. If you went into the bar in the evening he would introduce you in... More

On our second visit to Kefalonia we were looking for a small friendly hotel in a great location to explore the island further. The Athena Beach was certainly that. A small, very clean and super friendly hotel about 15 - 20 minutes stroll to the port town of Sami. All parts of the island are easily accessible from here but... More

Great little hotel, friendly family run and clean. Fab location if you want a laid back, anything goes, authentic week away. Right on the beach with a working fishing port. NO buses or transport (except taxi's) so providing you want a week doing nothing and either sun bathing on the beach or by the fabulous pool next door, its perfect.... More

I'm a bit non-plussed re the previous review, especially as we stayed at the same time. Rooms are basic, as are most in all parts of Greece, but spotlessly clean. Sheets and towels changed every other day and the room, bathroom and balcony cleaned daily. Yes, some rooms could do with a refurb but as long as its clean what... More
