“Service at its best”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

I decided to come to this hotel based on the reviews I have seen here. I know know that I did the right thing. The place is good and the rooms are fine. There are a number of places that can offer these. However, what I found unique was the excellent customer service that is very rare in Greece. I truly recommend this place. I just need to point out that you need a car here. There is nothing around in walking distance.

I find that I am repeating what everyone else has said, but I really cannot fault the Avithos Resort. We stayed there for the last 2 week in June, with our 1 year old little boy and were made to feel very welcome. Nikos could not have been more helpful and the staff were friendly at all times. The rooms were spotless as were the grounds (we had a garden room complete with tortoise outside the front door) and the pool is the jewel in the Avithos crown. I cannot recommend this resort enough!

Room Tip: The corner garden rooms have greater outside space.

Where can I start to praise Avithos Resort and its staff statring with Mr. Nikos Kokkolis? Being Greek and not having visited Greece or my fatherland, Kefalonia, in 25 years I researched hotels on Kefalonia in anticipation of my return after so long. Avithos stood out with its many positive reviews and beautiful website. The actual experience there was better than advertised. The grounds, landscaping and rooms are beautiful with attention paid to every detail. The feel is a traditional Greek with the amenities that you would expect from any modern hotel. Leaving the best for last is of course the service from the staff. It was unparrelled to any other hotel I've travelled. They made myself and my family feel like we were family. Niko is smart, friendly and professional. He was quick and knowledgable and answered all of my myriad questions. Bottom line is YOU WILL NOT GO WRONG with Avithos!! If your destination is Kefalonia I highly recomend it. Thank you again to Niko, Eva, Christina and the rest of the staff for an amazing experience!

Our first stay at Avithos but not our last! We were truly impressed by this beautiful place - lovely rooms and gardens and a fantastic pool area. The whole hotel is immaculate and relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble for Nikos and all the staff who are truly professional, courteous and helpful. Avithos beach itself is very pretty with a lovely beach bar and tavernas and is a 5 minute drive from the hotel when you can prise yourself away from the pool. The capital Argostoli is a great place to visit and so convenient. We have no reservations about recommending this hotel - it's a special place and congratulations to the owners for making it so.

We have just returned today from a fantastic week in Kefalonia at the Avithos Resort. A very big Thank you to Nikos, Eva and all who made our stay so enjoyable. We stayed on the ground floor as we have a toddler. The rooms are lovely and kept beautifully clean on a daily basis, in fact the whole resort is kept very clean. The pool is imaculate and the green grounds beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble -we got driven to and from the beach one day! Our two year old son was fussed over and enjoyed himself so much. Its a quiet peaceful place to charge your batteries ready for partying or the beach. We hired a car for 80 euros for 4 days ( bargain) and had a great time driving around the island. Driving is easy as people dont drive too fast. the island had a feel of an older greece before the tourists and as a whole is kept clean and tidy. The capitol, Argostoli was lovely and the people v friendly ( mostly italian tourists, so very family friendly) All in all a great island made better by a great resort. Thanks again Nikos, Eva and the staff.


BTW. I have read a few reviews about taxis from the airport with people saying 20 euros is too much. We paid 17 and this was after i asked a Thompson rep. She said there is a basic charge of 15 euros that the airport charge. seems to be the norm in a lot of mediteranean places. so pay it , stop worrying and enjoy
We got given a mosquito

Room Tip: all rooms were good and a good location

The resort is located in a beautiful and calm area with a nice sand beach in the vicinity. The structure itself is beautiful on the outside, conceived in traditional architectural fashion, with a stunning swimming pool and placed in an awesome garden, as well as on the inside, with nicely conceived apartments. Breakfast gives you a pretty good choice as long as you don't get up veeery late. The best thing is the service Nikos and Eva struggle to give you: you think of some need you have, they deliver it before you even named it. Now that's professionality and passion for one's job. Well done, really.
