The Magnolia is a difficult place to review as there is so much right with the place but it seems to have a multiple personality. Having been to Greece on holiday many times since the mid eighties, the magnolia is not your typical Greek holiday accommodation. To me it is not Greek enough, but in some ways it is very... More

I've never been to boarding school, and I certainly haven't been to boarding school in Kefalonia, but if I had, I'd imagine it to be a bit like the Magnolia. By all means, the Magnolia could be a very enjoyable stay for a lot of people, as seen by the many positive reviews that have somehow been achieved on the... More

We have just arrived home after a 2 week break at the Magnolia Resort. We stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of July and this was our 2nd visit to the hotel. As the village is quite small it has not been spoilt by tourism but there are enough places for you to eat that you could, if you... More

This was our second stay at the Magnolia which is a 15-20 minute walk from the beach and main Katelios tavernas. There are a couple of tavernas closer to the hotel. The Magnolia is just as good as we remembered it. Friendly and efficient staff, excellent accommodation, large bedrooms and bathrooms kept really clean by the maid. The room had... More

Comfortable 10 to 15 minute stroll from the resort centre, where there are a dozen or so restaurants and cocktail bars. Hotel restaurant had a fair a la carte menu which was reasonably priced (we were BnB so can’t speak for the half board menu). Breakfast had something for everyone and as much as you’d want. Staff were happy friendly,... More
