We stayed in The Apllonion Resort& SPA for 10 lovely days.
To get there from the airport you would need to hire a car(do it in advance because during the holiday season car rental companies may not have the car you want). It takes 45min from the airport to get to the resort.There are 2 ways of doing so. First : airport-ferry from Argostoli to Lixury(first @ 7.00 last one at 22:30,frequency:every 0,5hr; ticket 8E&car,4E per person, journey takes 30min). Second way is to go around the bay that there are hardly any lights so sat nav + good car is an essential part of this journey.
What you can find around? Xi beach is 5 min from the resort with bars and water sport facilities; Lixury:15min;Argostoli: 45minn; car rental:next to the Resort
Things to see : Platiamos beach (make sure you have trainers to be able to go up and down 400 stairs); Myrtos beach: BIG WOW!!!is a must to see!(make sure you carry swimming goggles the Medditerranian water is salty and hurts your eyes). Fiscardo: good place for dinning in the evening. Drogerati cave(5e entrance fee) and Melissani lake (7 e entrance fee).Zakhyntos :there are only 2 ferries a day! 8:00 to Zakhyntos from Pessada and 19:30 return ferry.
