Fabulous location, right on the beach, lovely pool area with plenty of sunbeds - Panis at the bar does a great job dispensing whatever alcholic beverage you wish.... Lovely clean, bright and spacious rooms. Couldn't have wished for a better hotel for our first visit to Skala, hope to be back again in the future

Room Tip: Ask for a first or second floor room as get a better sea view

The Makis Hotel, whilst the public areas are good, the pool area, bar and staff excellent, and the location is first class the room was TERRIBLE. The ground floor rooms are dark, badly furnished, dingy and damp and smell bad. They are in desperate need of refurbishment. The staff did what they could to change rooms for us, but the hotel was full. We actually moved OUT of the hotel for 12 days/nights of our 14 day holiday incurring extra expense. We would avoid this hotel in the future, but the resort and island are beautiful.

Room Tip: See above. Upper floor rooms may be better/lighter but overall poor quality,

We stayed at the Makis in Kefalonia, Skala in June 2013. We travelled with Thomson and although the start of the holiday at Bristol Airport Check In was awful (huge queues and very slow) it was lovely from there on.
We arrived to lovely weather and after a fairly long trip arrived at the Makis to a good welcome.
Shown to our accomodation quickly which was very basic but very clean. One tip is to take a kettle with you as there was not tea/coffee making facilities. A fridge is provided which is very useful for pre-dinner drinks on balcony.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and the pool area clean and lovely. The beach is literally just across the road, you may need beach shoes for swimming but the water is lovely and clear.
There are some lovely restaurants and bars just a few minutes walk, the Kleftico dish must be tried, its delicious, better in some restaurants than others.
Really enjoyed the holiday, so much so that we recommended this hotel to friends who are travelling this year.
Will go back again sometime.

Stayed at the Makis after booking a last minute deal with Thomson and really struck lucky. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms although fairly basic are perfectly adequate and importantly have air conditioning. The pool and pool bar are great with good value light meals served until 5pm. Eating out in Skala is a treat with a good selection of eateries. Our favourite by far was Pestolis taverna (turn left out of the hotel and walk just 2 minutes).
The location of Makis is perfect being right on the beach but just a short stroll to all of Skalas attractions.

Went to the Makis hotel for a weeks brake with my sister as I had stayed there before fro when the hotel first opened I was worried that things might have changed, no need to worry. A great location for a quite restful week, staff friendly beach across the road and Main Street a short walk away. It is great when you go back to a hotel even if it's been a few years and still be remembered.
