First time in Kefalonia and it truly is beautiful but hotel was huge disappointment. From reading the reviews I expected so much more. Room was awful with tiny balcony,less than basic shower room and generally shabby. Makis is everything you could wish for as a host and the swimming pool at the adjacent hotel is wonderful but it doesn't make... More

Chris, Sophie, Matt , Charlotte , Katie and of course "Nikos" stayed at this hotel last year and enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Athina Beach. Makis went out of his way to make our stay special and nothing was too much trouble. You get full use of the 5 star hotel next door which is where we... More

Stayed last August and had a truly wonderful time. A lot has been said about the hospitality of owner Makis so all I will say on the matter is it is all true. It was my first time in Greece so I was a little disappointed with the quality of the room and bathroom. However only slept in there so... More

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

Fine little hotel in a great position looking over the sea. Use of the 5 star pool opposite a real bonus. Makis & fam cannot do enough for you & is a real entertainer & host had some memorable nights in his bar. Sami & village a delight c u in June Makis...

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
