We can't fault the hotel, we were welcomed by Amalia who was the perfect host, our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, sheets and towels changed every 3rd day, good bathroom with shower and lots of hot water, great balcony with fabulous view of the sea, Sami...

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay at Olive Bay Hotel in the lovely village of Agia Efimia. The owner's daughter manages the reception and is extremely friendly and helpful, offering free espressos and homemade cake. The hotel is comfortable and has beautiful sea views, located only 50 meters from a small secluded beach where we went swimming every morning.... More

We stayed here in July 2015 for a week. The sea view was amazing and it was a two minute walk to the local tavernas and shops. Amalia who checked us in was very helpful and a great source for information. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable.

An excellant small family run hotel in a superb position with fantastic sea views. Amalia was so helpful from the beginning of our stay until the end, giving us local information and ordering our taxis for us. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel at all times. I would thoroughly recommend The Olive Bay to... More

The Olive Bay Hotel was exactly what we hoped it would be: spotlessly clean, stunning views, well-equipped and in an excellent location. Amalia is a friendly and helpful host and we were very comfortable in our room. The hotel is well-situated to walk to the tavernas and shops of Agia Efimia and we loved the little swimming beach situated directly... More

My mum and I are on the penultimate eve of our week's stay in June. As previous reviewers have mentioned, Amalia is very helpful and friendly, having given advice before and during our stay. The hotel is not "luxury" but is very clean and nicely decorated. We have both enjoyed the independence self-catered apartments afford, with the benefits of a... More

We accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment we'd rented on our first night in Agia Efimia; I called the Olive Bay in a panic at 10pm and although it was so late and the manager was finishing for the evening, she very kindly stayed and waited for us, found us a room and made us comfortable. We were so... More

The balcony was a great size for watching the boats and yachts and had very comfy chairs. The hotel is perfectly positioned fr the harbour and restaurants, the... More
