This small, family run hotel is in a really nice, peaceful location. The beach is literally a one minute walk away, is nice and clean, and has free sun loungers. Also free to use is the pool and loungers of the neighbouring Ionian Emerald hotel, which is really quite nice. However, the Athina Beach hotel itself falls a bit short... More

Really lovely location, the walk into Sami is a pleasant one, time to enjoy the beautiful island views. The family are so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Clean rooms and areas. For what you pay you are getting a great service. The rooms are basic but do what they say on the tin. Enough room... More

The best holiday we have ever had in Europe. Staff are friendly and attentive. Markis (forgive the spelling) is the best host we have ever encountered anywhere in the world, and we have travelled extensively. An amazing experience.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Athina Beach. We had a wonderful time and met some really nice people at the bar in the evening. I have to confess this was our third visit to the Athina and maybe not the last :)

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
