Very helpful young owner Amalia, very clean and good service with towels and linen, beach umbrellas provided if required free of charge. Agia Efimia is a lovely place to stay on the... More

We were so pleased to arrive at Olive Bay Hotel. The view was great, and the room was clean and comfortable. They supplied us with a variety of food in the kitchenette, so that we could make breakfast and have snacks during the day. That was such a treat! The only negative we had was that there was some boiler... More

We stayed here for a week in September. The hotel is perfectly situated to walk to all the bars/tavernas that Agia Efimia has to offer. The room was cleaned every day and had everything required for a very pleasant, relaxing stay. The staff are excellent and will get you anything you require and also some good advice about destinations,tavernas and... More

A bright modern and spotlessly clean studio with amazing views over the bay. Well equipped with even an ironing board and iron available for guests to use. Staff super helpful couldn't do enough to help, would definitely return.

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
