A Huge Thank you to Makis, the amazing owner, and his kind staff who made me feel welcome from the moment I met them! The hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the view of the Ionion Sea and Ithaca from my balcony were breathe taking! A wonderful and memorable experience all around!

The hotel is exactly what you would expect for a location like Karavomylos, quiet, peaceful and really relaxing. Great bonus that you can use the facilities next door at the Ionion Emerald, lunch there was really great, staff were very friendly and the swimming pool was amazing. The very best attribute of the Athina is Makis. A real gentleman for... More

This was our first time in Kefalonia and we fell in love with the island. We didn't expect it to be so unspoilt due to it's popularity and yet it is. The whole island is stunning with jaw dropping beaches and gorgeous harbour towns, we definitely recommend hiring a car to explore. As for the Athina hotel, how much you... More

How amazing is Kefalonia and Karavomilos. If you want somewhere that is beautiful, hot and friendly. You will not go too far wrong here. The Athina Hotel and the Ionian Emerald Hotel are fantastic. Makis, who is the main man here, will make you feel welcome from the word go and will make your stay the best :-)

The owner of the hotel puts you at ease as soon as you walk through the door, and after hours of travelling, that's exactly what you need. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are cleaned every day: the hotel is absolutely spotless. Our room was very tastefully designed, and had all the essentials considering we spent... More
