We have just returned from a week at the 9 Muses Hotel, Skala Beach on the 21st October. We just wanted a last minute break in the sun before the winter set in. Well what can I say about this hotel. Beautiful setting, lovely location. Accommodation was lovely, each room had a lovely balcony or terrace depending on were your were staying, We went half board as we didn't know what the resort would be like for restaurants at the end of the season. We made the right decision on going half board as a few of the restaurants were closed or closing due to the season. We could not complain about the food at the hotel as we had a wide range of choices so we never had a problem eating, The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. When we arrived our cases were taken up to our rooms for us which was a lovely touch and on your departure they collected them from your room and took them to reception. As we were the last holiday makers at the hotel the owner came and wished us a save journey home by shaking our hands, never had that before which I thought was a very nice touch, and a lovely end to our stay at the 9 Muses. Would I recommend this hotel I would have no trouble in saying YES.

Room Tip: If you have a problem with cats I would recommend you have a first floor room because of the cats, a...

The upsides are this is a very nice hotel, very good facilities, very nice staff who could not be more helpful. The accomodation is very good with fantastic landscaped grounds and gardens.Two pools , one down by reception and one up by the old chuch. The beach is right across the road and manages to keep the sun until the very last minute before it disappears over the hills. The restaurant is very good and offers a great value for money selection.The town of Skala is small but has a few restaurants and bars but dont expect a lively party location.
The downsides are dont go in mid October. Things have already started to close down like the boat trips mentioned in previous reviews and quite a number of bars and restaurants.Skala is a bit remote. Its an hours drive from the airport, the capital and anywhere else worth visiting. Its a pity as the hotel is excellent.

Room Tip: if you dont like cats get an upper room as there are quite a few wandering around.

We stumbled across the 9 Muses by accident when looking for a last minute break. We generally avoid package type holidays so our expectations were blown away when we arrived at the hotel. There was none of the Fawlty Towers type experience I remember from trips to Greece when I was younger (not that they didn't have their own joys!). From the minute we arrived and had our cases whisked off us, until the morning we said a sad goodbye to the ever-friendly staff, the hotel couldn't be faulted. The pools and bar areas are clean and well maintained and the accommodation itself is spotless. We enjoyed our room at the quieter back end of the complex next to a smaller pool and bar area, I would advise asking for these rooms if you want to be away from the main road and bar/restaurant. Breakfast was a simple continental affair and more than adequate.
We fell in love with Kefalonia whilst we were there and will definitely look to staying at the 9 Muses next time we go!

Having narrowed down our holiday to kefalonia we originally booked the white rocks hotel in lassi but 3 weeks before we were due to go Thomsons notified us that white rocks were closing early for the season and we could move to the 9 muses which we did.
The hotel is fantastic and the staff can't do enough for you. Although it was the end of the season in skala and a lot of restaurants and activities were shut there was plenty to do around the hotel, with 2pools and pool bar. The avra restaurant gave a good meal each night. The rooms were clean and the cleaners even shaped the towels on the bed every day, the last day they made a plane and a house out of towels.
When we left the hotel the manager was out to see everybody off.
9 muses is a brilliant hotel and would certainly recommend to anybody.

Room Tip: We were in room 304 where you got a sea view but didn't get the sun on the balcony in the aftern...

Having decided to visit Kephalonia and narrowed down my hotel selection I did my usual trip advisor research. 9 Muses was fill positive reports. We were not disappointed. Visited 4-14th October on half board basis and were prepared to eat out on some evenings but never ventured out of the Avra Restaurant. On the HB basis we were given the menu to select from each evening and with 2 of us dining for 10 days we still did not work our way through the menu. A couple of starters, desserts and steaks cost an extra couple of euros but loads of choice without this. We has €40-50 worth of dinner each night so worth the extra holiday cost.
Skala small resort and season coming to an end was very quiet. We did book a trip with Panem and as there were not enough takers they sent a car and took 4 of us to Agostoli by car. Went on last Capt Vangellis cruise of season to Fiskado -great day out. Lovely walks. Visited Roman Villa worth the short walk. Would definitely go to this hotel again but earlier in the season. Staff brilliant, everything spotlessly clean, owner made a point of chatting to everyone.

Room Tip: We were on room 301. Newer block but a bit of a hill so may not be suitable for all. Great views of...

We have just arrived back from staying at the Nine Muses Hotel, and what a fantastic place it is!
The rooms are set out in a village like theme behind the swimming pool area with lovely flowering shrubs and trees everywhere.
We had a nice large room with a comfy soft bed and plenty of storage space. There is a safe inside the wardrobe if you need it charged at18 euros a week. A spacious balcony outside our room even had a small airer to hang towels or wet clothes on which was useful.
The Avra restaurant was at the front of the hotel with a nice sea view. Amanda's bar was beside the restaurant and there was a happy hour every night from 6-8pm we spent many a happy hour there before having our meal! Amanda treats everyone like a friend and was very generous with the cocktail measures!
The hotel and grounds are kept immaculately clean by hardworking and dedicated staff who were always friendly and happy.
The three little kittens at the hotel were quite cute and didn't bother us, they were shooed away by staff if they thought they were being a nuisance.
We were only staying bed and breakfast and were concerned that we would not find any tavernas open as it was the end of season but we needn't have worried as there were only about four that were closed and plenty left to chose from, some had even reduced their prices, we particularly liked the "Old Village" taverna. We did dine in the Avra restaurant a couple of times and that was nice.
We hired a car for three days from Greekstones in Skala (who were very helpful) and drove all around the island there are some beautiful places that are worth seeing. you really must come to see for yourselves!!
