Have been here two years running. Love it. Agia Efimia is the ideal resort in Kefalonia. Rent a car and be within about 1 hour of anywhere except perhaps the farthest flung corner of the Lixouri peninsula. Amalia's Olive Bay hotel is in a perfect position, lovely views across the sea to the bay of Sami and to Ithaka. Sit...

I booked at the Olive bay hotel on a TripAdvisor recommendation. I contacted the hotel direct via email & was soon discussing booking arrangements with Amalia. The hotel is spotlessly clean & has some splendid views towards Ithaca & Sami. My room was cleaned daily! Plenty of restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Would definitely stay here again if visiting...

Friendly staff. Thank you Amalia and Evi! Nothing was too much to ask. Arranged taxis, helped with directions within the area and booking activities. Room was clean with all of the necessary equipment. Brilliant views and location. Many restaurants and activities within walking distance. Highly recommend Boulevard Boats and Bavarian Riding Stables. We also made use of the great selection...

Such a wonderful spot in our favourite place to stay on Kefalonia - Agia Efemia. The hotel is situated just up the road from the marina and tavernas in a quiet area away from the through road. There are a few pebbly bays to swim in, which I enjoyed each morning, and was an ideal start to the day before...

Our stay at the Olive Bay Hotel could not have been better. Nothing disappointed ! A perfect location to explore the island from and a lovely room to return to at the end of the day. The balcony had amazing views over the bay looking out to Sami and an idyllic small beach was only a few yards away. Lovely...

The Olive Bay Hotel was the perfect place to come home to at the end of every day! It is in a wonderful location, just steps away from a pretty, pebbly beach with crystal clear water. Shops, restaurants, market, and atm are all within walking distance, and the famous Myrtos beach is only a 15 minute drive. The view from...

What more can we add to what has already be said about the lovely Olive Bay Hotel. Spacious rooms, beautiful views over the bay to Sami and Ithica. Very helpful young owner Amalia, very clean and good service with towels and linen, beach umbrellas provided if required free of charge. Agia Efimia is a lovely place to stay on the...

We were so pleased to arrive at Olive Bay Hotel. The view was great, and the room was clean and comfortable. They supplied us with a variety of food in the kitchenette, so that we could make breakfast and have snacks during the day. That was such a treat! The only negative we had was that there was some boiler...

We stayed here for a week in September. The hotel is perfectly situated to walk to all the bars/tavernas that Agia Efimia has to offer. The room was cleaned every day and had everything required for a very pleasant, relaxing stay. The staff are excellent and will get you anything you require and also some good advice about destinations,tavernas and...
