We have stayed in Kefalonia 3 times now and have booked to return in July 2012. I always thought it was boring to repeat holidays but we just love the island and have had a wonderful holiday each time. The last 2 times we stayed in Lassi, first at the Hotel Mediterranee, then last year at the Lassi Hotel - both were enjoyable and comfortable accommodation, but this year as we feel we know our way around a bit we are opting for self catering. Each visit we have ended up for several evenings at the Aqua Marina, as it has a lively, friendly vibe and there's not a huge amount to do for our teenage children in Lassi. 'The Boss', Nicos ( not English, as a previous reviewer wrote, but native Kefalonian who lived in the USA for a good while) and his wife Marietta, have remembered us and made us welcome, as have John the singer, and our 'personal' waiter Ben. We are hoping that when we return this year, the recession hasn't affected the Aqua Marina as it appeared to have done some of the other bars and restaurants in Lassi who were clearly struggling to make ends meet and getting a bit desperate for trade. We have never eaten at the Aqua Marina, but plan to this year, but I can recommend the ample drinks measures and great atmosphere, and yes, the music / entertainment is a bit corny, but even our teens were happy to spend time playing pool in the back room while we crooned to the oldies - a good time was definately had by all ages! Looking forward to seeing our beautiful island again ( don't just stay in Lassi - get a car and be brave to venture elsewhere!), and mellow times at the Aqua Marina. Thanks to all for making us so welcome - '......one more drink?' says Ben - yes, definately, in 2012!
