Staff is verry frienly and professional (especially our host Amalia). It was a great experience for us. We find good touristic informations at reception regarding... More

Searching for an overnight stop in Agia Efimia, and lucky to find a room here. Hotel is just on the edge of the village, and rooms overlook the bay across to Sami, with a pretty balcony. Beautiful flowers outside the hotel create a good vibe. Studio room was spacious and comfortable, and although no breakfast at the hotel, we were... More

Wonderfully friendly receptionist and a room with a sea view was perfect for our one-night stay. Tiny pebble beach opposite was lovely for an evening swim and we enjoyed our stroll around the harbour. Free iced water, tea and coffee in reception and although no breakfast was provided, our studio room had a well-equipped kitchenette.

We've been coming to Kefalonia for over 12 years and this is the best accommodation by far. Beautiful views, excellent house keeping , fully equipped kitchen and only 1 minute walk to the shops and nearest taverna, also couple of minutes walk to the nearest small beach- bring an umbrella it's amazing snorkel

I would hardly call this an hotel as it has no facilities other than a room. Having said that it is quite large with a well equiped kitchen. Big comfortable bed (we like a hard mattress) and hairdryer and safe in room. The shower room is very small with a horrible shower curtain and water that goes everywhere. Not the... More

Service was excellent, staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Found some local walking maps for us and printed copies off. Room was very spacious and airy with good facilities and balcony with views over the bay to Sami and Ithaka. Located only a few steps from a pretty pebble beach with swimming in crystal clear water and... More

Just want to thank Amalia for the lovely stay at Olive Bay. Spotless, comfortable beds, spectacular views and peaceful surroundings. What a gem! Perfect location ... Nothing was too much trouble, and it's within walking distance of many restaurants in Agia Efemia.
