“The First Visit Of Many We Hope”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

My Wife & I spent a belated honeymoon at the TesoroBlu hotel which we will never forget. Having travelled our favourite country Italy from north to south year after year, we felt it was time for a change of scenery. Our presumptions of Kefalonia were that it would not rival our favourite spots in Italy on any Level. I am very delighted to say we couldn't have been more wrong.

The island is beautiful, the climate is perfect even during our early season visit (2nd week in May) & the people delightful but the best thing about our trip was the Hotel.

The Hotel is ran by a Greek/American family who are exceptional hosts. The attention to detail from the manages shows through there staff & the overall finish of the hotel. Nothing is too much hassle & every single member of staff went out of there way to see to our every need.

Perfect for couples the hotels has a real 'Zen' like feel. Superb Live acoustic entertainment (although artist only there for 6 weeks), excellent cocktail bar & scrumptious evening food. In fact the food was so good we didn't eat out once in the evening. We spent one evening enjoying the a la carte menu in our own private tent by the Infinity pool in candle light where you Have your own dedicated waiter. All of the food was fresh & local which showed.

Weather you want a pool side holiday or something a little more adventurous this Hotel is a fantastic base for you to enjoy your holiday.

We Don't believe in visiting the same hotel twice but we find ourselves tonight looking at prices for a return visit in September. Watch this space......

Thank you to all the staff at Tesoro Blu for making our trip so special.

We returned from this wonderful hotel on tues after 5 days at home need to go back!! this hotel is fantastic spotlessly clean, beautifully designed,the staff make it special, they make you feel welcome they are efficient, and most of all they smile!! the view from the pool is superb, and no one running to put towels on the sunbeds, Good music in the evening from Adam and wonderful cocktails, which was very entertaining to watch being made,and lastly the wonderful Amy, she does a fitness for 1/2 hour in the morning I was the only one that did it that week, we did boxercise and dance aerobics and it was fun, plus don't feel so guilty about spending the day at the pool, she is a lovely bubbly girl, hope if you read this you go to one of her classes, I can't wait to go back.

One of the best hotel's we've ever stayed in, tranquil, contemporary and very friendly staff.

As soon as we pulled up outside the Tesoro Blu and were greeted by the staff we knew we'd arrived somewhere special.

We were two sister's on holiday together so we weren't your conventional 'couple' in this 'couples' hotel but we were in no way made to feel out of place and would definitely go back.

Amazing cocktails mixed by Martin and Miro every night and last but no means least a GREAT entertainments package provided by Amy and Adam.

We left after our weeks stay not wanting to go home.

just stayed at this really great place for a week [wish it could have been longer] the hotel is in a superb location and the views from the pool area are outstanding the rooms are spotless and the staff cannot do enough for you and are really friendly nothing is too much trouble and they are always on hand to help now I am not a big fan of fuss and bother and this place really has it right cos they are there if you need them but leave you alone when you want peace and quiet the island is really great try to hire a car it is very easy to drive around andthere are many great villages off the main roads great holiday will definitely go back to this hotel

Room Tip: try and get o room at the back of the complex better views

The Hotel is modern and perfetct! They has the friendliest staff I have ever seen. From the cleaners, receptionists to the waiters and chefs,no one can do enough for you! The rooms have massive wonderul beds, lovely shower and lots of little touches - dressing gowns, ironing board...
The pool is lovely, the spa fantastic and the view from everywhere is lovely!
Food is Good-very good, but some people may suffer but my partner enjoyed the food each time.
One thing -There isnt a Sandy beach here -its mainly shingly kinda thing which nice but painful to walk on.

To finish, If your going to Kefalonia and like modern, clean, excellent service, lovely views great value for money, this is the place!!!

This was our first visit to Greece, and after long searches on the web (yes, I'm a holiday planner "freak" LOLOLOL) we decided to go to Kefalonia. About the Hotel, it was just a case of "love at first sight"... when we saw the Tesoro Blu website, my wife said immediately: "I want to stay there!"... well... when a woman says that... we better arrange for it!!!!! I have to say that our expectations were high, as the Hotel looked great in their website, with all the features we were looking for: great modern architecture, perfect location by the sea, fantastic pool with great view, SPA, and so on... and what can i say??... the Tesoro Blu, as if it was possible, have exceeded our expectations!!!!! I can't name anything we didn't like at the Hotel... all we expected was there, the rooms are really beautifull and modern, the pool, the SPA, the restaurant, the food... everything is really, really TOP!!!!... to go along with all these features, the Staff at Tesoro Blu is absolutely incredible! Our big thank you to all the team, Lisa, Kostas, Penny... well... each and EVERY one of you, you really made us feel welcome, you really made us feel at home. I must say I already been in lots of diferent places, hotels, touristic destinations... and Tesoro Blu was probably the best place I've ever been. We were the first clients of the season in 2013, and the staff, when we arrived, told us they were hoping we could give them luck for this season... what we can say is... "guys... we wish you all the best, we wish you the best season ever, you really deserve it!" I could stay here talking about this hotel for hours... but what i say is: get a week off, pick up a flight to Kefalonia (Ryanair and Thomson have lots of flights to the Island), contact the hotel and find out for yourself! I'm sure you'll have a holiday you'll never forget!... at least WE will never forget Tesoro Blu and all the team!... and who knows... even if we like to go every year to a diferent place, because there is a world out there to be discovered... Tesoro Blu and Kefalonia may well be in our plans in the future again!

THANK YOU TESORO TEAM! ALL THE BEST!
