Since booking, I have tried numerous times to contact the resort and not one email has been replied to. I even called and they palmed me off and hung up the call. This is the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. Digraceful for a supposedly 5 star resort!

Amazing place with Stunning view . Ideal location just by the sea and only a short walk to Sami town. Spacious clean Rooms and balconies with wonderful view . The pool area is clean and spacious. The pool bar offers the most refreshing cocktails in the island , Thanos ( the barman ) is the best. Nothing was too much for Helena and her polite and helpful staff. We will be back soon.

Pretty hotel very friendly staff ,fab views and not far from Sami about 10/ 15 mins walk along the beach my only complaint is Although it’s a nice friendly hotel it’s not 5 star in comparison to other 5 star hotels I have visited if you want small and friendly that’s fine but the rooms very small and a little shabby so it seems over priced .

Absolutely the most chilled hotel and staff we have recently encountered . Though wouldn’t have thought it the place for children , though there is a small pool it is a fabulous base to see the wider kefalonia and there is plenty to see in just a short distance. The pool and evening bars were superb (wine excellent) the breakfast was fine though the atmosphere and decor seem a little bland nevertheless we had a really enjoyable time and Would if we visit Karavomylos stay here again
