“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2008

I just saw the review from the honeymooners07 and I couldn't disagree more.
I stayed last year in June in a non seaview room and I was not let down at all.
The rooms were exceptionally clean with daily maid service, twice a week linen change and every other day towel change.
There was some times noise from the road but nothing that constant so I couldn't sleep. Most of the apartments in Agia are locate dclose to the village road or they are too far from the village.
The furniture was very nice and all the facilities such as TV, fridge, en-suite bathroom were available.
It is not a 5 star hotel but I did not pay for a five star hotel.
Overall it is one of the nicest place you can stay in Agia efimia, with a wonderfull garden, amazing views and very clean comfortable rooms.
I would definetely go back again and I would recommend to everyone to ignore such unfair comments.

Although Waterside apartments is beautifully situated and has a lovely garden, the facilities are rather poor. Although we were expecting fairly standard basic self-catering accommodation, this was really shocking. The room we stayed in was absolutely tiny, the furniture faded and falling part and the mattress lumpy. There's just a feeling of there being dust and dirt because it's clearly so old.
If you have room facing the road instead of the sea, you will not be able to sleep. Lorries picking up deliveries from the nearby port roar past the Waterside and the noise is quite alarming.
The owners seem very sweet but we had such a poor night's sleep we had to move hotels (we've never done this before!)
I really wouldn't recommend this hotel until it's had some major refurbishments and had thick windows put in the road-facing rooms (don't be misled by your travel agent. If you ask for 'seaview' they may still give you these road facing rooms as the balcony goes all the way around the building and they argue you can see the sea from there). There are far better, cheaper places to stay in Aghia Efimia which is definitely the most stunning and friendliest place to stay in Kefalonia.

Won't repeat info already available on web. Great place to stay - sitting in garden overlooking harbour with a book and a beer! Very relaxing. Few minutes to walk in centre.
Appartments good - Daily maid service.
