“Another wonderful stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is our 3rd visit to the hotel and it lived up to our expectations once again. We had a sea view room on the 2nd floor and the view is simply breath taking. Worth every penny, and it cost many pennies ;-) I could not stay on the other side of the hotel having experienced this view. The hotel staff are wonderful and can't do enough for you. It is our first visit with our baby boy and we found the staff so child friendly. The food remains great - typical Greek food every night with the best salad bar we have ever found in a hotel. Always several veggie options on too which is a bonus abroad. The desserts were much better this year than in the past so a big thumbs up from us. The beach here was perfect for baby too - very gently shelving and lovely and warm in the shallows (once used to it!) even at the start of June.

You can buy Greek baby food and yoghurts in the hotel shop, and Pampers nappies and wipes in the resort supermarkets too. There are cots and high chairs for the rooms, we emailed in advance so it was ready for us on arrival. The waiters in the dining room are very accommodating and will get other food from the kitchen for the baby if you ask them.

This is by far our favourite destination for holidays - both the hotel and the island - and we will certainly be returning, we love it here!!

Only had a week at this lovely resort/island but found it very relaxing and laid back and has still managed to hold onto its greek identity.
The Hotel we found to be clean with friendly staff eager to please. If we have one small gripe my other half forgot to pack trousers and only had with him dress shorts for the evenings this was a problem because gentlemen had to werar trousers for the evening meals. Now we have no problem with the rule as such but my husband had expensive smart shorts and very nice shirts with them. We arrived back at the hotel one evening to witness gentlemen leaving the restaurant with Jeans, trainers and some even wearing tracksuit bottoms. Now this cannot be right or fair no offense to anyone that wore them but we could not see that my husband was any less smart in his shorts and shirt.
Sun beds around the pool were free. The beds on the beach are 6 euros with a parasol for the day. If you like a tea of coffee in the room either take some with you or buy at the resort as it isnt supplied. There is a fridge in the room that comfortably holds large water bottles/milk etc.
Towels changed everyday in the bathroom. We did have to catch the maid one morning to change the pool towels as they ask you to leave them on the floor if you want new ones but if you need them during the day that doesnt work but it wasn't a problem and she changed them while we waited for her.
We cannot comment on the evening food because of the trouser thing but the breakfasts were good with loads of choice. We also decided on the days that we stayed at the hotel to swap dinner for lunch which you can do through reception but it has to be booked the day before. Lunch is served at the beach bar and has various choices from pizzas, etc to salads.
Would love to visit again in the future.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the Sea View

We had a room on the 4th floor, which was incredibly drab due to carpets, curtains bedspread and part of the wall all being brown. Every time we used the shower puddles appeared on the floor. The beds were extremely hard, due to reading other reviews we knew the hotel supplied mattress toppers which we requested. We never sat on the balcony as it was scruffy and looked out over the car park. Even though there was a large variety of food it was always lukewarm and not really tasty. The cleaning staff were very helpful as were the pool cafe staff. We were half board, but ate out most of the time. The restaurant is a large cavernous area and not atmospheric.

We were never able to get a sunbed on the beach and struggled at times to get one by the pool. It was 35 degrees on the 20th June and you really need a parasol, but there were never enough. We found the area more expensive e.g. than Spain. We had to have the air con on 24/7. No tea or coffee provided. The island tour we booked with the agent on the right up the hill for 27 euros excellent tour guide Esme. The reception staff (except for one blond with glasses) 'smiled through gritted teeth' and were not very friendly. This is not a family hotel as the pool is not big enough to accommodate a lot of children and adults, and really not much else to do.

The island itself is ok. The shops in Argostoli were not the best. We liked Assos more although there is very little to do here. We will not be returning.

Room Tip: the rooms at the back are cooler in the daytime however, the views and balconies are not very nice...

Just returned from a one week break at this hotel with friends. We had a second floor room with a sea view; the room was clean and well maintained, and had the essential air conditioning. A kettle and small fridge were provided, along with a free room safe, although we had to provide our own coffee, tea, milk and sugar, which we purchased in a local supermarket. We stayed on a Bed, Breakfast and evening meal arrangement, which suited us, although as we were there just for a week to unwind, we didn't venture out very far from the hotel during the day, just into Agostolion by taxi. The pool area and beach were superb, but I would imagine that they would be more crowded during school holidays, and then there may be a problem getting sun loungers, but during June we had no problems. There are plenty of small bars and restaurants within a short walk of the hotel, and on the Saturday evening, (which was the middle of our stay), we went for a meal to celebrate my wife's birthday, at a local restaurant called 'Butlers'; the food and service were excellent. In June the hotel clientele were mainly like us, the over fifties, but I would imagine that in high summer there would be a lot more people with young families there, and consequently far more noise. The food was of a good standard, and would appeal to those with an international pallet; in general what you would normally expected in a Greek four star hotel.

Room Tip: The Sea view room on the second floor that we had was very nice, but I imagine it would be very hot...

Just spent a week at the Mediterannee Hotel. We booked a sea view room and then e-mailed a request to the hotel for a high floor which they did arrange for us. Reception was very efficient with pleasant receptionists. Rooms are of a reasonable size and immaculately clean as is the bathroom. Towels and sheets are changed every day which is almost over the top. Beds are comfortable and seemed fairly new. The air conditioning was very good and really essential from mid afternoon to early evening if you are in the room as the sun is shining directly into the sea view rooms at that time. Whilst we were there we could not actually sit on the balcony at those times as it really was too hot. The view of the sunset from the balcony however is beautiful.

There is a safe in the room which is free to use as is WiFi which is available throughout the hotel.
There is also a fridge and a kettle in the room but you will have to buy your own tea or coffee making ingredients which are available in the downstairs shop or, of course, any local supermarket.

When you visit the hotel restaurant you are greeted by a maitre d’ and shown to your table, both for dinner and for breakfast. We enjoyed all of the food and the Kefalonian wine is great. This is a very quiet island which we knew before booking and the hotel certainly follows the quietness where evening entertainment is concerned.

They have entertainment just three evenings per week. Firstly there was a couple singing standard classics who had so little personality or even movement that we decided that a couple of shop dummies would probably do as good a job. Another night there was a very good saxophone player whose offerings were again a few classics plus some modern jazz which we considered was three o’clock in the morning music to put everyone to sleep. The third night’s entertainment was billed as Greek Night which usually means a bit of life. Unfortunately though the two shop dummies returned in slightly different dress and once more hardly moved a muscle even when playing more upbeat songs. The hotel really is wasting money on these acts as half of the people present drifted off very rapidly.

The pool area is very pleasant plus you could sit in the gardens where you are surrounded by flowering shrubs and trees. Sun beds are in short supply when the hotel is full but you could then go down to the beach, although there is a charge for the sun beds in that area. Unfortunately, as is the case in most hotels the usual scramble to reserve sun beds starts very very early. I don’t know what the answer is to this universal problem but perhaps someone will invent a system one day.
I would also mention that the hotel supplies beach towels free of charge that you will find in your room upon arrival.

There are many Tavernas and bars outside the hotel. You do have to walk up a slope to reach the main road so consider that fact if you have any walking difficulties. We visited four bars all of which had their own merits. Turn left into the main road and on your left we firstly tried Trentis bar. It’s in a nice setting and its claim to fame we would say is the view from the rear across the sea to Lixouri plus, of course, the sunset. We only had one drink here as the piped music was very modern with a heavy beat which is no doubt good for the younger set but not for us recycled teenagers. A little bit further on you will come to So Simple bar which seems to offer different entertainment every night.
The third bar we tried was still turning to your left into the main road but this time cross the road and on your right you need to be prepared for a very steep climb to Logos Grand View cocktail bar. The name is quite correct as it does have fabulous views from up high & is well worth the climb.
Considerably further along on the right was our personal favourite bar called Eden. It is set in a beautiful garden with coloured fountains and you have the smell of a type of Jasmine drifting through the night air. Music played was 70s & 80s when we were there but they do apparently adjust it dependent on the cliente.

All in all a great hotel and a great place to be for a very tranquil holiday in lovely surroundings.

Just returned from a weeks holiday here and really enjoyed our stay. We had a first floor front bedroom which we were delighted with,although low level, we still had a lovely sea view and it had recently been updated. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones we have had abroad. The room was quite big with fitted carpets, lots of hanging space and a sparkling clean bathroom. Cleaners came every day to change bedding and towels. All the corridors that we saw were carpeted which kept any noise down to a minimum. The food was very good plenty of choice and always fresh especially the salads. The staff in the dining room were always pleasant as were the girls on reception. We thought the entertainment wasn't brilliant but just up the hill a little way there was a very nice Taverna ( Aqua Marina ) where we had some enjoyable nights. The drinks here being a lot cheaper than the hotel. We did struggle some days to find sun beds and parasols round the pool, as people did put towels on them very early then didn't turn up for them till later in the day which is a real pain. We used Etams Agency at the top of the street to book our Island trip and paid a lot less than Thompsons, our guide was very informative and entertaining so we had a lovely day with them. The 6 euro taxi fare into Argostoli is worth the money, just too far for us to walk, because that's another lovely place to visit. The hotel is lovely and there is lots to do on the Island so just enjoy.

Room Tip: It is worth paying extra for that wonderful sea view

Stayed at the Mediterranee hotel 1st week in June and loved it. It is right on the beach and close to lots of good Taverna's, also perfectly situated for exploring the island. Although it is close to the airport there are only a few flights each day and we didn't hear any at night. The hotel is a little dated in parts though most of the rooms have recently been refurbished, the excellent food and service more than makes up for it. We did the island tour by coach which was excellent and very informative, don't miss the underground lake! We eat out every evening all good standard, house wine cheap and tasty, our favourite Taverna's were Tzorgias and Sirtaki.
The top 2 floors of the hotel give the best views, our sea view room was amazing though would probably get hot in high season as they get the sun all afternoon.
The hotel entertainment is low key which suited us, younger couples might find it too quiet but I think the whole island has a laid back feel to it so does not attract those looking for nightlife.
After exploring the whole resort I felt our choice of hotel was perfect.

Room Tip: Top floors have best views, sea facing get sun in the afternoon, inland facing get sun in the mornin...
