Reviewed August 11, 2014

Just returned yesterday from staying at the Almyra and can say without reservation that it is the best hotel I have ever stayed in - nothing was too much trouble, even when my son lost the room key in the sea!! We got married whilst in Fiscardo and had a number of minor requests, use of mini bus etc, none of which were too much trouble - all done with a smile. Room minibar prices were all local supermarket prices, so not excessive at all.

We had room 108 which faced over the pool and hence superb views out over the coast toward Ithaca - lovely room, very spacious, clean, plenty of storage etc.

Highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Transfer from airport not good due to roads and main road currently closed following earthquake, but this is not the fault of the hotel and it is most definitely worth the journey as it is the most beautiful location.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook pool and coast and have best views of ocean, but all rooms have partial...

Stayed at the Almyra for 1 week and can honestly say that it couldn't have been more perfect! The views are to die for and only a short walk to the harbour. All of the staff are so friendly and welcoming and cannot do enough for you. 1week was not look enough and I will definitely be returning! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice, lots of choice. Thank you so much for a great stay :-)

Lovely hotel and staff however, this was booked as a small and friendly, suitable for couples two week holiday.
Two days after our arrival all the loungers were reserved every morning with towels. The pool was unusable for children's inflatables and the noise was so bad from screeching kids they could be heard all the way to the car hire place on the main road. Even in our room we had to shut all the windows and shutters as well as put the air con on to drown the noise of the pool area!

We had nights and nights of loud raucous behavior, people unable to find their rooms and the final straw was someone who had obviously come in later than their partner and thought they would wake the dead with the persistent door knocking at 3am.....hardly the type of holiday we had envisaged.

It turned out that there was a wedding party and their guests staying at the hotel so we apparently endured the hen night, stag night and night before nights then the wedding.
Ha that was great!
The pool was quiet that day (they were all getting ready for the wedding no doubt) so sitting on a lounger drying out after the one swim in the pool in two weeks to find your self surrounded by men in suits in the middle of their wedding photos???? I felt most uncomfortable - embarrassed even and I felt this was unfair of the hotel and the travel company not to inform their guests of such events. After all we were all paying guests!

So, all in all we were the unwilling observers of someone's wedding that had cost us a fortune!

If you are looking to book this hotel, its very nice. Lovely views but we did find ourselves wishing we'd booked the quiet self catering property next door!

Room Tip: Wi Fi connection poor in rooms and lots of road noise as its on the main road

This is the ethos of the staff who did everything they could to make sure we had the holiday we wanted. Refreshingly laid back with attention to details that showed they were always willing to go the extra mile. We felt wanted & welcomed & very spoilt. Returning later this year & counting the days.

The 2 of us returned a week ago and we would really recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday. The staff are very friendly and helpful and our room was very comfortable. Fiskardo is a lovely location with plenty of restaurants to chose from. A tip is to hire beach towels at the hotel ( cheap ) and don't bother taking your own.

The best hotel in Kefalonia, with awesome view and exceptional service. Quiet location and very close to Fiscardo. It has spacious rooms with big bathrooms. Probably the best value for money in the northern Kefalonia!!!
