This was our first trip to Lourdas on arrival at the hotel we were given a very warm welcome by jenny and her team our room was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view the food at the pool bar is fabulous and always served with a beaming smile from jenny we recommend you stay by the pool if the hill to the beach is to steep for you as jenny will look after your every need as she did with us she will do anything for you [wonderful lady] we will return. Elaine and Bill M.

If you want to experience beautiful scenery of the island, a friendly atmosphere & gorgeous home cooked food then this is your place.
We were made to feel so welcome by Jenny and her team on arrival with welcome drinks and we were given a brief overview of all the great sights and excursions available throughout the island. One of the best nights was the BBQ night which was ran at the hotel & very reasonably priced too. The rooms were clean and basic but that didn't matter as for me and the girls I went away with, it was about how great all the staff were and the atmosphere which added to the overall fun & laughs we had throughout the week. Were definitely going to book again with the Maria Anna - thank you for a great week.

We have stayed at this same hotel now for a few years which is something that we don't normally do. The reason why? We love the hotel and everything about it, the location and views are fantastic- you can see Zante from the pool area. The staff are so helpful- Dora, George,Panos & (Leonardo), Nikos will do anything for you, except make the cocktails weaker!! They believe in good quality and top service and this is just what you get from this hotel. The food is excellent and plentiful ( I was worried that it wouldn't be as Gregoris who is the part owner is away during the week and he is such a fantastic cook) but they have found a gem in Panos who's daily specials are a must to try ( chicken in beer and honey- yum,yum). The breakfasts are tasty and set you right up for the day served by Jenny who is half of the fantastic couple who own and run the hotel, she is simply amazing a true star who works so hard ensuring you have the best holiday ever! I could go on and on raving about how good this hotel is but instead I will just say..... Go visit and see and sample for yourself the best hotel in Lourdas and maybe we will see you there because once you've been you will definitely go back for Jenny & Gregoris are THE BEST hosts and I am so pleased we picked this hotel to Experience Kefalonia years ago. See you next year Jenny, Gregoris and the team xx

We were allocated the Maria Anna on arrival in Kefalonia. To say we were worried about these "allocated on arrival" hotels is an understatement but as we booked last minute thought we'd give it a go. What a find! This hotel is superb, the room, the hosts, the air-con, the pool and the view are brilliant. The food and drinks on site are good value for money. Sitting on the balcony at all hours of the day and night gazing out to sea (binoculars useful) was a regular occurrence. The steep descent to the beach is tiring but nothing compared to the ascent, taxis are available. The best things about this hotel are the host family and the superb view. Can't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: Air-con is an optional extra. Make sure you pay the extra.

We booked through an agent but checked out reviews in Trip Advisor first. This place got such good reviews we didn't hesitate and booked straight away. We were not disappointed, this basic but charming hotel run by Jenny and her family was everything we needed. Good rooms, lovely pool area, simple but perfect breakfast, great bar and fantastic staff!
The beach walk is very manageable and well worth the effort, don't be put off not anywhere near as bad as many people told us. The area is quiet and relaxed and surrounded by a range of lovely Tavernas. Olive Lounge is a must and we ate there 4 nights out of 7, was superb and a must for anyone staying in Lourdas.
Rooms were cleaned daily and spotless and family atmosphere made our stay very memorable. Would highly recommend to anyone & would certainly return!

Just returned from last minute booking to this hotel and we have no idea how we got in last minute. The hotel was perfect accommodation is basic but has everything you need - take your own hairdryer tho, clean and well maintained. Worth paying for air con as was so hot when we were there. The hotel is run by family and to say they are excellent is an understatement!! They couldn't do enough for us and were always available not that we needed them as everything was so well organised. Jenny and George are the owners and never stop all day - breakfast, bar snacks, bar ect... Dora is cleaner and does all rooms on her own as well as helping out at breakfast and Nicholas works the bar at night - all lovely people as the Greeks are. The beach is down a steep hill but once there is beautiful and the walk back is fine if you have water with you and don't take a wrong turn like we did and ended up on the wrong road!!!! We hope to revisit some day if only there weren't so many other places in the world we want to see we would be back next year! We hired a car and toured the island and were always glad to get back to Maria Anna such a quiet lovely hotel for evening drinks. 1st night a welcome meal and optional karaoke was provided which was great night as most of hotel attended and on wed night a BBQ for the hotel another great night. Anyone thinking of going to this hotel I would recommend it with no hesitstion.

We have been before and it was great this time it was even better. 14 of our family had a special time. Jeni and Gregory really try so hard for us to make sure every thing was just so.
We wish them well and although its a long time in the future we will be back next year
Good Luck
