Avithos deserves the best review but we selfishly want to keep it to ourselves and not tell anyone else!
I found the resort browsing online but initially thought it looked so nice it would be beyond our budget. I was delighted to discover how reasonably priced it was and then went on to read all the amazing reviews. The reality did not disappoint in anyway and we cannot find anything negative to stay. We had our daughters with us aged 10 and 8. They loved everything about our holiday especially the pool (we struggled to get them to go the beach), the resident tortoise and are now pining for Nikos who very kindly treated them to icecream. I can only repeat all the other reviews - spotlessly clean, immaculately kept, stunning surroundings and staff all friendly and helpful.
We found the location great for exploring the island by car but also realised we could easily spend two weeks not going very far at all and be equally happy. So much more still to see and do on Kefalonia we will definitely be back and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else now.
We would like to wish Vassilis good luck with his studies - we know it can be tough and can't even begin to imagine studying in a foreign language - you have our admiration!
Next time we will learn more Greek before we come!
Efcharisto Nikos! (from Isla and Morven)

My partner Maureen and I have just spent a week (June 26th) at the Avithos resort and can honestly say the welcome from Nikos & Eva was exceptional, great start to the holiday. The resort is ideal for a relaxing break. The pool is large and never over crowded. The rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean, as are the grounds. The service from all of the staff is superb with nothing ever too much trouble. We tried several of the local tavernas which all provided good food at reasonable prices. We booked an island tour via Nikos for 18 euros each (a lot cheaper than some of the online tour operators) and was an excellent way of seeing this beautiful island. When we return to Kefalonia, it will definitely be to the Avithos resort – Thanks Nikos & Eva for making our holiday one to remember. Roy & Maureen

We stayed at the Avithos Resort for 12 days in early June, and had an amazing time both at the resort and in Kefalonia. Avithos Resort is one of the few places we've stayed abroad where the hotel/resort itself looks even better when you arrive than the photos on the website! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, recommending places we should see and places to go for meals everyday that were great, and got 10/10 from us everytime. Our room was spotlessly clean and tidy, as was the entire resort. The whole resort had a relaxed and friendly feel about it. We would highly recommend the Avithos Resort and will definitely be going back in the future!

Dear C and M

It was really our pleasure to have you in our hotel. Both me and Eva miss our long discussions in the night time. The turtle proved to be a she and not a he. ( Tonia not Tony) and guess what she has little eggs. Anyway we really miss you and we wait to see you again in one of your future visits in the island.
*M, stop touching things in the sea!!!

Thank you

My husband & I recently spent 10 wonderful nights at the Avithos Resort. The staff were always friendly and very helpful at all times. This was our second visit to the hotel and decided to return because of the very relaxed feel which it offers. We arrived at the middle of June and the weather was ideal - not too hot, but warm enough to swim in the sea. I know review sites such as this one invite travellers to write useful reviews, but we are unable to mention anything negative about the Avithos. We will like to be back next year if time allows.

Although we didn't stay here, (stayed at Katerina Apts a few streets away), we were able to use the pool and facilities at the Avithos resort and were made to feel very welcome. The pool area is very clean and tidy with plenty of sun beds, the pool it self was amazing. We spent 3 days of our 1 week holiday visiting the pool. Nikos was helpful with information we needed. We would certainly look to stay here if visiting Kefalonia again.

To all you Greece Lovers if you havent already then this is one to visit again and again, we have just returned again after several visits and it just gets better everytime, Nikos the manager (the owners son) is the most friendly,helpful,genuine person, and his most welcoming staff too. The maisonette that we stay in, is very spacious ,comfortable and exceptionally clean, maid service every day and change of linen every other day. The pool is very welcoming and clean. A great choice of breakfast offered.
Nikos is always around to greet you everytime and nothing is too much trouble.
Yammas (cheers) !!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy, Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!
We hired a car too which we believe is a must if you want to get to Avithos beach or to the town, Lassi ,which is easily organised through Nikos.
