The staff are all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Nice view from the balcony, a good pool, fridge in the room, and a short walk to all bars and restaurants - everything you need in a simple hotel.

We spent the first 2 weeks of September at the Hotel Palatino. Our expectations were not high, although we had read previous good reviews. However we came away having decided to return next year. Not something we normally. The hotel is small and the staff are outstanding. A real family feel where everyone seems to be valued. We had a... More

We had a lovely week at the Palatino, good breakfasts, friendly and helpful staff and good views from both sides of the building. When we arrived we were told that would have to swap rooms the next day. We weren't too happy initially but when the join between the wall and floor started to leak in torrential rain, we were...

We stayed here in early September 2016, arriving late evening via a transfer with Thomson. Keys were handed out quickly and we were soon in our room via the lift. Location: We were surprised at how hilly Kefalonia was and to be honest if we'd known the walk up to the hotel was so steep we would have stayed elsewhere.... More

Location and excellent standards stand out at this fabulous hotel. The staff are so friendly especially Marina at the pool bar and Lucy at reception. The rooms are lovely and aircon was very useful in the plus 30 degree heat in July. The pool was really spacious and grass round the edges. Very comfortable sun loungers and great food and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights 3 years ago and were happy with the hotel. We wanted to come back to Kefalonia so we rebooked for 2 weeks. We were aware that the hotel is modestly priced so were not expecting much more than a shower and a bed. We really wanted to use it just as a base. The... More
