First impressions of Thalassa were excellent, as we were impressed by the stunning reception area, terrace and breakfast room. The breakfast selection and quality was also good, I particularly liked the honey cake one day. Wine served on the terrace in the evenings was also a nice touch.
This was slightly tempered by our room, which being on the ground floor in a sheltered corner, was dark and lacked a nice terrace to sit out in the evenings. The daily servicing was good though and with hindsight we should have requested an alternative.
The real disappointment was in the pool area and bar, which were shared with the adjoining apartments and not up to 4* boutique standard. The lack of real spa facilities was also disappointing, for example yoga classes were advertised though when I tried to book the Monday 5pm session was told they needed two days notice but the yoga instructor offered to do the class at 8pm. I then booked the Thursday session and the instructor failed to show up.
All in all, we would recommend this as a nice base in a good location, being close to Argostoli and with good access to beaches, but don't plan on spending all day by the pool. Do also plan to hire a car as Kefalonia is a large island with windy roads and scattered beaches best accessed independently.
