I've just returned from yet another stay at the Avithos resort, and it gets better and better every time I visit. New poolside furniture, beautiful gardens, spotlessly clean swimming pool and Nikos and his friendly team (the cleaners, the pool bar staff and the reception staff) all go out of their way and 'go the extra mile' to ensure that your stay is perfect in every way. Thank you, i can't wait to return.

Another huge thumbs up for this lovely resort! Husband and I were both burned out from working parenthood and a break here did us no end of good :)

The Rooms
We stayed in a maisonette which was perfect for my husband, myself and our toddler. The double bed was huge (and I mean huge!) and comfortable and the whole family slept really well. We had a bath in ours which was very handy with a little one but the shower also had some oomph :). Might be of interest to other parents to know that windows had blackout curtains and that with windows shut (or even without) there was hardly any noise. As others have mentioned, housekeeping was spotless.

The Pool
The pool was beautiful - always spotless and with a separate children's pool - loved it.

The Location
The setting was a very peaceful countryside location.
I have to admit I did have a wobble about booking somewhere so close to the airport but I only ever noticed about 2 planes in the whole time we were there. It made for a hugely convenient location and mean that we touched down and were sitting on loungers by the pool within a couple of hours and no stress about a long transfer prior to the flight back.
I'd recommend a car, especially as at only 25 Euros a day it was good value. Kefalonia is a big island with lots to see. If you did just want to chill locally though the Avithos beach was small but very pleasant and the taverna (Avithos Preview) there was fantastic.
A bit further away at Lassi there were bigger sandy beaches with lots of facilities.

The rest of the island
Beautiful green and mountainous island. Some jaw-dropping views including the beach at Myrtos - wow - and pretty much the whole coastal road north. Fiskardo was pleasant enough but it was Assos that stole our hearts. The Melisani cave lake was worth a visit, especially when combined with a visit to nearby Antisamos beach.

Eating Out
Eating out was really laid-back and it's so nice to go to a country where small children are welcomed (rather than tolerated!). A particular favourite was Avithos Preview (loved the Grandma Rosa salad and dolmadas were the best I've ever had. The Robola wine (their own) was lovely. Platanos in Assos was extremely popular for good reason - their aubergine dip and pitta and suckling pig are going to live in my culinary memory for a long time!

Customer Service
What can I say? We've never been so well-treated in a hotel ever. Nikos and Christina out a huge amount of themselves into the resort and were incredibly warm and kind people.

I hope we get to return to this lovely place at some point!

Room Tip: Maisonettes were lovely - loads of space and two balconies.

Avithos is a most attractive and very well managed resort. Built in 2004, the accommodation has been carefully laid out within beautiful and carefully tended gardens. Bougainvillea climbs over pergolas almost everywhere and provides welcome and colourful shading.
The welcome we received from Christina and Nikos was outstanding, their English is impeccable and noting was too much trouble for them when we needed help or advice.
We did find we needed a car because Avithos beach is a good 15 minutes walk away and has no sunbeds or umbrellas. However, the car hire was easily and economically arranged by Christina through the Kokolis group. Once we had the car, we mostly made the 10 minute drive to Lassi beach near Argostoli. This is a very well run beach complete with umbrellas, sunbeds, loos, boardwalks, showers, changing rooms and a taverna.

What can I say that has not already been said? . This Resort is just lovely. The attention to detail from the outset is obvious, not too many buildings and all set in lovely gardens affording a degree of privacy, with well thought out communal areas. The one bedroom apartment we had was very spacious for the two of us and was kept absolutely spotless by the maid every day who even washed up our crockery for us, not at all your usual self catering standard. All the staff at this resort are very friendly and helpful and Nikos is to be congratulated for ensuring his guests have a good holiday with all/any information they need to do so, his attitude to his guests is friendly and caring but never pushy, something other hotels sometimes need to remember. Christina on the reception and Katerina at the bar were a pleasure to talk to and again nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. it was my husbands birthday when we were staying here and Nikos bought him a truly lovely birthday cake which a few of us enjoyed at the bar with the odd glass of something alcoholic!. We met some lovely people some of whome have been coming back to this resort for quite a number of years. We don,t usually go back to place for another holiday but we are already making plans to return here in 2015. A big thank you to Nikos and all his staff for helping us to enjoy our first ever Greek holiday.

Room Tip: The rooms are exactly as you see in the photographs.

We found this hotel last year by chance and had such a great stay, so we had to go back this year and it was as good if not better than the previous year !
Family run hotel with great staff, great accomodation and unbeliable attention to detail in every area, it has a beautiful very well kept pool and a lovely relaxing atmosphere . It would be very hard to find any negative point, it is exactly what we look for in a holiday destination.
