This was our second stay at the White Rocks and we decided we’d bring along my parents this time as last years stay was lovely. We stayed again in one of the bungalows and my parents in the main hotel. As we had always stayed in a bungalow I had no idea the rooms were so bland.

Dear Reviewer, We thank you for taking the time to write the first review of 2019 and we take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year. We appreciate your point of view, although your individual expectations were not met. We always aim to deliver a high standard of service and products, so we are sorry that you have left the hotel thinking otherwise. We take guest comments seriously and we continuously review our operations. We will also forward your comments to the relevant department. However, there are a few misunderstandings on your behalf that need to be addressed: All the rooms of the hotel and bungalows have been designed to equal standard and feature the same style and quality of furniture and facilities. Photographs of the interior of all different room types are posted in our website and in third parties websites. The duties of the restaurant hostess are only to greet and seat guests promptly to the next available table during service. All hotels are given their rating officially by the local authorities based on certain prerequisites such as multiple room types, more than one restaurant and bar on site, shops, guest relations services, swimming pool and private beach as well as location and views, proximity to the airport as well as to the main attractions of the destination. The amount that you have paid for your holiday includes much more that the accommodation. The total cost of your vacation which was paid to your travel agent includes your flights, transfers, insurance, resort agent’s fees and T.O. marketing and operation costs. We hope that all the above have given you adequate information to make informed decisions for your vacation. We thank you for sharing your thoughts, we wish you all the best and we remain at your disposal should you need any additional clarifications regarding your stay. Kind regards White Rocks S.A.

Hi can you hire mopeds nearby
Thank you for your inquiry. Generally speaking the use of mopeds is not recommend in big islands like Kefalonia, where the distances to be covered between the resort and the main attractions are not very short. We would advice car rental instead mainly for your health and safety.
