Just returned from yet another fantastic week at the Asteris...3rd year in a row its that good... The staff are so friendly and accommodating...nothing is too much trouble. The food is fantastic... lots of homemade treats!! The rooms are clean, modern and spacious and the views from the huge balconies are outstanding...
The common areas are spotless as is the pool area... they even provide you with towels which you can just help yourself to and change each day if you wanted, although we're conscious of the environment so chose not to change them quite so regularly. We used to pop off to the beach each day for a few hours and the hotel even provides you with an umbrella to take with you to shade you from the sun.
The hotel is about 5km outside of Skala but the early evening walk is lovely, although alternatively the hotel has a courtesy bus or its only 6 Euros in a taxi. The location of the hotel perched up on the hill outside of Skala was one of the most appealing aspects for us - peace, tranquility and outstanding views.
Each member of staff deserves a personal mention for the fabulous job they do... Marita during the day and those fabulous Frappes; Makis later on for a little nightcap; Yiannis for his friendly smile and courteous ways: Sofia for the lovely food and cakes; and of course Costas for his cheeky charm and generosity. With the fear of having missed anyone out, I will just say that they all do a fantastic job... friendly, courteous, asset to the hotel.
Its a bit like being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea when writing a review on such an excellent place... you want other people to experience the hospitality of the Asteris and you want the hotel to be successful and busy yet you don't want it to be fully booked when you want to book again.... however it deserves its success so I don't really mind it being full.
Hopefully we will be holidaying in Kefalonia again in September .. Skala and the Asteris will definitely be our first choice.....
