We stayed for 2 weeks from the 12th June and had the best time ever, our room was 406 and gave us a really nice view.. The rooms were spotless and linen and towels were changed every 2nd days.

This is the first time we have stayed at a hotel for our holiday, we usually go self catering, and were delighted that we came to the Makis Hotel. In our experience while we were there, all of the staff were very polite and helpful. We stayed in room 412, which was on the top floor of the rear block.... More

I had not been to this hotel before but found the staff friendly and helpful with possibly the exception of the young barman in the evening. The rooms were clean and pleasant and we were on the 1st floor of the block at the back. Towels changed every 2 days and equipped with a fridge, only downside was no kettle... More

We stayed for a week and after initially being thrilled with the location and appearance of this hotel, we were sadly disappointed with our ground floor room and shared balcony at the rear of the property partially overlooking the next door restaurant / trees, but to the side the caravan shared by the cleaners next to a brick wall used...

Just returned from a very much needed relaxing week in the wonderful Kefalonia. We stayed at the Makis and had an excellent room in the back building on the top floor, where you had a view of both the mountains and the ocean (I understand the comments about the ground floor rooms , you need to be on the middle...

We have very high expectations of small & friendly hotels. However this was not to the same excellent standards we have experienced in the past few years. The initial room was dark, dingy and damp, we were moved but I am afraid this was held against us and quite frankly the owners were abrupt and very rude. Skala was beautiful,... More

Sad to say that we left it to late to book at this hotel this year, but we did use the pool area every day on our recent holiday to Skala. Some days we would just lie by the pool on other days we used their sun beds on the beach, and stopped in for a cold beer on the... More
