We have been going to Kefalonia for many years and have now discovered a jewel of a hotel. Having read some of the reviews I was a bit sceptical about it but went with an open mind and I’m glad I did. The location of the hotel couldn’t be better with views that are spectacular.

We spent 2 nights in the Emelisse hotel during our honeymoon trip. We had a wonderful time at the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and nice. Breakfast was very good and the view is breathtaking. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Took the chance of an early October week in Kefalonia. Weather all week great, totally different to the 10 day forecast. Arrived in temperature of 28c. The hotel was an hours drive from the airport (Argostoli), very steep and twisty roads, watch out for the goats! Arrived at

The first impression at the reception was unfortunately not a great one as everything was just far to much trouble. I think the staff were ready for the end off the season and being friendly,helpful and communicating all seemed far to much effort. I didn't feel welcome or valued

Just checked out from a week at the Emelisse Hotel. It was an amazing place. Hotel gorgeous, views breathtaking and everything spotlessly clean. Best of all was the friendly and polite staff. Hope to make it back again soon

We stayed in Fiscardo and hired a boat to take us around. The water was calm and so it was an easy trip with our (then) young children. Foki beach is good. Assos and Myrtos are further away but you may be able to reach them. Emelisse hotel does speedboat tours I believe but you might need to be staying there. Hope that helps a little and enjoy.

Definitely hire a small boat in Fiscardo. So many gorgeous beaches and coves to see it is well worth it. See if you can hire someone to drive the boat as well, a local would know all the pretty quieter spots! The island by water is magnificent!

we hired a car as it is so easy to navigate your way around the island. You will also enjoy exploring the little villages along the way. BE sure to get your International DL as it is now a requirement in Greece. Enjoy.

There were no Yoga classes on while we were there, however the season was just starting, I would ask the hotel

there is an adults only pool with sunbeds, if you want to use this area then a morning wake up may be needed. The main pool has more than enough to accommodate you. Also, there is a little separate area on the clifftop that you may need to book that has a gorgeous view - ask the bar staff at the main pool, they should be able to help you.

"Our room was quite noisy at night with people chatting outside reception when they returned from dinner quite late."
"First floor sea view"
"309 has lateral views of the sea and a little balcony. We could hear a slight buzz from the aircon units outside, the spa is opposite."
"Rooms around 207 area are close to reception and main pool area."
"sea view rooms are best or choose a villa with a private pool as a treat."
