When you arrive at the outside of the hotel, you might feel a sense of disappointment - but wait until you have met the manager and staff of Petani Bay Hotel. They welcome you so warmly and then you look at the view, the pool and then your room. All excellent. Voila, the owner manager will provide you with daily... More

Our suite was large and airy with every facility one would want. There are steps to negotiate between the various... More

Sunshine, great food, spectacular views of course, and wonderfully comfortable sun loungers around the pool. The rooms are also very spacious and very thoughtfully fitted out with all you could wish for, including mini kitchen... More

The location is amazing and Petani Bay / Beach is beautiful. The island of Kefalonia is wonderful and this occupies a clifftop spot overlooking the coast. The pool area is lovely and... More

Beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, ideal for couples and families. The view is breathtaking and the rooms very well equipped and clean. We spent two whole days at the pool and enjoyed every minute. There is a pool bar and a restaurant as well. In addition it's very close to petani beach.
