The customary trepidation you have when booking any new holiday destination, was dispelled within seconds of arrival. The welcome was warm but not imposing and the initial sight of the modern, immaculately presented pool and bar area set the benchmark for the hotel.
Our room was spacious (two in a family room) and immaculate, the bar meals and drinks were excellent value for money and the hospitality shown by our hosts was exemplary..... when I struggled to obtain a wireless internet connection, a cable was sourced, when we asked about the nearest laundrette, our clothes were washed dried and ironed, when a birthday was mentioned a cake was baked.........nothing was too much trouble.
We found the location ideal for days when we wanted to chill and stay local (incredible number of close by quality restaurants and well stocked mini-markets for such a rural location) and as a base to drive out to other parts of the island (including to the infamous journey to the nearest beach).
Please don't let any of the minor irritations mentioned in certain reviews prevent this from being your first choice place to stay.

Having read all the reviews before staying at Saulus studios I was really looking forward to my 2 week stay. Yes the family are friendly, the rooms clean and everything said about BBQs and Kareoke are also correct, but felt hungry after my meal and the music went on until midnight but stopped only due to lack of outsiders turning up and buying beers! In defence of Mr Grey and the other reviewer with mixed reviews I fully endorse their reviews re towels,, showers, shabby 50s style decor, loud staff arguing on telephone and with other locals, poor cleaner working long hours (seen her cleaning pool area well before 8am and still working away late in day) Family do very little except sit in bar area on laptops. Also sussed out that they ask people to leave remarks in a book with their email addresses, but being a suspicious person I wonder why? A lot of the reviews on here do not ring true to the things I seen and experienced and I am only trying to put across an impartial and fair review as to my experience for a short time at the Saulus and as every one has their own experiences, - but there are a lot of excellents and very high reviews which is well above the average for everywhere else on same island etc. If you are looking for a base to stay then yes it is a good choice (but hire a car!) and it is not too far from airport or capital.

Room Tip: One away from bar area maybe one up and to the right overlooking pool

We stayed for two weeks and had a fantastic holiday. The Sudios are well maintained and very clean. The owner and staff were very friendly. The pool and pool bar was the best in the area. Breakfasts served in the pool bar was an excellent start to the day, very good value and included coffee and orange juice. The BBQ and karaoke was an excellent evening. The walk from the beach takes about 30 minutes but you can stop for a beer on the way back. If you want to see the island a car is the best option. We saw some fantastic views. All in all a fantastic place to stay, all the staff were extremely friendly and we met some lovely people. I would definately book again.

I cannot fault this resort, the people were friendly, the hotel spotless, well maintained. A lovely pool and pool bar. The food was good, drinks reasonable priced a large iced cool local beer was 2.50 euros. In a good location, plenty of bars restaurants and supermarkets nearby though walk to beach is a challenge in the heat. The rooms are basic but kept clean. Kefalonia is a wonderful island to explore, plenty of quaint beaches and coves. A perfect relaxing tranquil island.

We stayed for two weeks and cannot fault a thing. The owner was lovely, helpful, friendly and very generous. The food was good, noted the apartments are basic but what do you expect for a 3 star. The location was perfect, with plenty of places to go to eat and drink and a good base for hiring a car and exploring this wonderful island. Easy to drive around, not stressful at all. The pool and bar area were immaculately looked after, our rooms were always cleaned often. The only disappointing fact and this is not the owners fault, was that the bbq, karaoke party was shut down well before midnight at about 1030pm, due to certain guests. This was unfair i think to those who had paid to have a bbq with KARAOKE, which never got going. All i can say to those who complained and seem to be just after their money back, is that they should book a villa out in the middle of nowhere. Seeing as they use Tripadvisor they should have been well aware that the hotel hosts a weekly karaoke and should expect there to be noise at least until midnight one one occassion. Also complaining about a member of staff talking loudly? ReallY? Overall we had a lovely holiday and shall return to the saulus studios one day, don't let the very very few moaners put you off coming here.

Room Tip: Back rooms are cooler, front rooms close to pool and second or third rooms had good views.

Just returned after another week in Saoulas Studios love this place, travelled to many greek islands and we can honestly say this is the best accommodation we have ever stayed. Eleni, Elena & Christina are excellent hosts and you are made to feel part of the family. Food excellent, room's cleaned regularly. Barbeque and karaoke on a Friday evening is a must good fun and you get to meet the other guests. We can not understand why people are complaining regarding the karaoke i stayed at Saoulas Studio's in July as well, we can guarantee you the karaoke finishes at midnight and the music is turned down. We find the prices at the bar reasonable alot cheaper than most islands. THANK YOU ELENI, ELENA, AND CHRISTINA FOR A BRILLIANT HOLIDAY! SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR Marcia & Ian xx
