San Giorgio Hotel is located on the outskirts of Skala, it is efficiently and effectively managed by its experienced and able staff. With three magnificently maintained pools that you can really swim in, excellent restaurant and bar you could be forgiven for not wanting to venture away from site, but that would be a pity as Skala is such a gorgeous town, with friendly towns people, local children playing happily together in the square in the evening, inviting shops and stretches of crystal clear water to be enjoyed as well rocky coves for snorkelling. The Hotel provides a friendly shuttle bus service to and from the town and reception staff are always helpful should you have any queries. The hotel is located on a hillside and some of the rooms can be very high up so be prepared, but I regarded this as a positive when considering the gorgeous greek meals served at the restaurant and pool bar. Each of the rooms has air conditioning, they are basic but spacious and carefully cleaned every day. I say, give it a go, both in terms of the island and this lovely hotel.

Room tip: Request a lower room if you have reduced mobility

I cannot understand these crazy people below - I would advise to ignore!!!

Our second visit this month was just as great as our first visit. Amazing hotel, great staff, wonderful food, clean pools, great maid service- the list could go on.

And for the people moaning about karaoke - lighten up you are on holiday!!!!!

Can't wait to visit again in 2015

Xxx

Just came back from a holiday in Scala. We stayed at San Giorgio. Our first impressions were that it looked a nice place. But from the minute we got to our apartment it went downhill it was room 201 the room is badly in need of a lot of redecoration the toilet window had bits missing and had mould where the part was missing,the water flowed through the shower door when you had a shower. The breakfast was adequate at most. We had a meal at night and it was okay and reasonably priced. The noise at night when the entertainment was on was very loud and went on till around 12. Okay if you want to stay up that late but if you wanted an early night forget it. The swimming pools were nice and clean and not over crowded. All in all not I place I would recommend and I certainly would not return there.

Many good things about this hotel... large rooms, large bed, powerful shower over a bath. 3 good swimming pools and ample sunbeds. Staff pleasant.
We asked for a quiet room and consequently were put at the top of a long very steep hill. This suited us well but might not be to every ones liking.
The main downside was that this seems to be a hotel trying to cater entirely to a stereotypical notion of what Brits want. The background music was the worst of Brit pop, the entertainment was live music ... a greek singer singing british and american pop not very well, karaoke, quiz night....almost nothing greek in any of it. If it wasn't for the fantastic weather and incredibly beautiful views and surroundings you could imagine you were still in old Blighty. Likewise breakfasts were dominated by toast, boiled eggs, beans and extremely oily scrambled eggs...with some tinned mixed fruit also on offer. There was also delicious water melon but that was the only fresh fruit and it was served up every day. Coffee was rather bland. On the other hand the evening
meals did offer better quality food and some traditional greek dishes but with a variety of great local tavernas in the surrounding area it was a waste to eat in the mediocre dining room.
Overall, we had a lovely stay in beautiful kephalonia despite our reservations about this hotel. If you want a british experience abroad choose san giorgio.

Room tip: Quietest rooms are up a very steep hill. Close to the pool would be noisy

Everyone says they keep returning to this hotel im bewilderd as to why . This is our first hotel in Greece as we normally do villas /apartments, we do all inclusive in Egypt and thought after 20 years doing other accomadation we would try a hotel. Im afraid it wasnt for us. WHY? well we had a room near the pool bar which had 'entertainment' most night going on till the early hours , we didnt mind the Karoke as it was fun to sit on our balconly and have a laugh! We were bed and breakfast but as i have dietry requirements ( which the hotel knew about and frankly offered me fruit and soya milk) we gave it a miss and had brunch out. We had one meal in the restaurant, it was not worth 44.00 euro as we had 2 prawns in our prawn starter one of which had been diced up with the shell on. The place is clean I cant deny that, i just wished they would sweep before mopping as you could gaurantee the hair that was on the bathroom floor will be in the bedroom by afternoon and if you was lucky on your balconly! ( I know its Greece). I felt that the room we was in felt in need of a refurb really. The ones at the top seem newer and had great views. its a long slog up there though as is the trek down to the town. did it once after that we had a jeep from perfanis in town who was very reasonably priced. The pool area was clean, not used to stepping over bodies to get to a bed but there was always a bed availble somewhere we didnt spend much time here really just at evening times after our meal, but even this proved silly, as when we requested a couple of wine glasses to have a bottle of wine on our balcony, the bar refused as we had half pint tumblers in our room it took a trip to reception to get them brought up!! Quick tip take a travel kettel as you dont have tea coffee facilities in the room. Its our second trip to kefalonia first time in skala its ok but we prefer sami. we didnt appreciate its beauty on our first trip. Overall, everyone is different the hotel wasnt for us, you might like it

Room tip: try booking on eof the rooms up high stay away from the ones near pool and pool bar
