Spent a fantastic week at the Eryphilli from 23rd July to 30th July. This was our second year at the Eryphilli in Katelios (7th time in Kefalonia) and we were not disappointed. Again Nikos and his whole family were so welcoming and could not do enough for us during our time there. Last year we stayed in the new block of apartments and this time we had the older block which we found just as nice and clean. It was great to see many familiar faces from last years break as people tend to return to this accommodation year after year. Enjoyed many of the local tavernas especially Jerry's Elliniko and Captain Jerry's, also the Baklavas in the local bakery are to die for!!!!!! We are now looking to book a two week stay for next year. Highly recommend the resort and accommodation

We've just got home from our two week stay at the Eryphilli 13th to 27th July,
We read some of the reviews of the property before booking which made our choice easy. It's all true about Nikos and his family team,nothing is ever too much trouble for them to make your holiday perfect.
Rooms, maid service, meals, pool, pool bar service,well kept property,and general can I help you attitude of the team......Excellent . Would recommend to everybody...

Room Tip: Ask for new block rooms which have a slightly better view of the hills and sea.

What can I say. Spent another fantastic 2 weeks at Eryphilli! Went from 23rd June until 7th July and was very well looked after by Nikos and Maria (and the whole family). The rooms are basic but what else do you want, or even expect, in Greece? The apartments are well maintained and very clean. The cleaning staff do an excellent job of keeping everything spotless. Nikos, as usual, is an excellent host and will do anything he can to make your holiday perfect. This was our second time at Eryphilli and we already booked to go back in June 2014 before we even went on our 2013 holiday.

We have made some fantastic friends and think of Katelios as our second home now and can't wait to get back there.

Highly recommended A+++++

We've just had a wonderful week at Eryphilli. We were in the new block in apartment 34 which was ground floor - extremely spacious and plenty of room for myself, husband and adult daughter. The food at the pool bar is excellent too. A/C very reasonable at 35E per unit per week (apartment has two units). I had a little peek at one of the studios in the old block and that seemed fine as well, obviously not as big as the apartment but I would have been happy there too. The pool is beautiful and well kept as are the surrounding gardens. We did not go to the food evenings(eg lamb dinner & BBQ) but that was because I was so laid back I did not book in time! I would not hesitate to return. Nicos and his family are specialists in good old fashioned hospitality - lovely place, lovely people.

Room Tip: Take a small washing line & a few pegs - there are no washing racks to dry undies,swimwear &...

We booked after reading all of the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. We were after a relaxing holiday and Katelios and the Eryphilli were just perfect.

I think the best things about the Eryphilli are Nicos and his lovely family, the friendly atmosphere, the beautiful pool and snack bar area and the gorgeous scenery.

We were in a studio in the old block and I have to say that it was a bit basic and could have done with some refurbishment, especially the bathroom. Also, the sink and cooking area was tiny; OK for preparing breakfast and a light lunch but perhaps not for cooking a big meal. However, it was spotlessly clean and had a decent size balcony so we were happy enough and we weren't planning to cook anyway. I think the studios and apartments in the new block will be much nicer.

The atmosphere is really lovely. Very quiet during the day, but in the evening people sat and chatted in small groups at the poolside bar until quite late and it just felt really friendly. I think this is because there are lots of returning guests and many people seemed to know each other from previous holidays. The people in the next room to us had been 7 times, which speaks for itself.

Nicos is great; very friendly in a quiet, unassuming way. His wife makes the most delicious quiche and moussaka, which you can eat at the pool bar (amongst other things). Each week they have a 'lamb night' and a BBQ. The lamb was delicious but we didn't go to the BBQ.

The accommodation is an easy ten minute walk to the beach and the small cluster of tavernas and bars that constitute Katelios. It is very quiet and laid-back but there was actually more choice than I had expected. The quality of food was very good and reasonably priced.

The beach is not brilliant, but the further you walk along it the better it becomes with fine pebbles, shingle and sand, but it is very pretty.

We were very sorry to leave and I can quite understand why people return year after year; we will probably join them!

Room Tip: Request a room in the new block.

Arrived late evening and Nikos was there to welcome all guests and show them to their rooms. We then ventured to the pool bar for much needed refreshment and freshly made food, the home made options are delicious (made by Niko's wife), I did ask for the recipe for the quiche and Nikos cheekily said he would let me know next year! We had a room in the new block which had the welcome addition of a shower cubicle and hairdryer in the bathroom which is a luxury in greece. The room was clean and more than adequate with kettle and toaster.
The pool area is immaculate with plentiful sunbeds in an idyllic location. They have a weekly barbeque and lamb night both of which are excellent value for money and very well organised, highly recommended. All the family work very hard to ensure you have an enjoyable stay and we will defintely return, Thankyou Nikos and your lovely family in contributing to a wonderful holiday.

Welcome hot food and a very good glass of red wine on arrival, late evening. Nicos was great and there if you needed him, but unobtrusive. The accommodation was adequate but basic. Pool, sun beds and umbrellas were great and the scenery was breathtaking. visits to Dreams and Jerry's are a must, and see the island via hire car from Venus. A fun day out on the boat from Captain Vangelis to Fiscardo shouldn't be missed. A fabulous holiday never to be forgotten!!
