We stayed from 18-25 June in room 508 that was on the top floor facing the sea. This was by some margin the best self catering accommodation that we have stayed in Greece. The entire complex was immaculate and it is hard to believe it is seven years old. There were 86 steps from the bamboo trail to our room...

Stayed at the Crystal Palace for two weeks at the end of May, beginning of June, being our first visit to Kefalonia. Was pleasantly surprised to be staying in a studio which had two balconies, one overlooking the sea and the other overlooking the sea and the swimming pool. Found the studio and whole complex spotlessly clean and Nik and...

It was last year, where my family went to Crystal Palace, must say one of places I've ever stayed. The staff are friendly and so welcoming you don't want to leave. It's very easy to get to the main street of restaurants, but I must say there can be a lot of stairs. I must say all my family loved...

Excellent accommodation with an emphasis on cleanliness. Easy walking access to the main facilities in Skala with a range of good restaurants and bars. Good snorkelling along the coastline - altogether the relaxing holiday venue we crave during the rest of the year.

We've just returned from 2 weeks at the Crystal Palace and cant fault it. We chose it based it on TripAdvisor reviews and werent disapointed. I can however understand some peoples thoughts towards the rooms with a view across the carpark. If it were me I would have been disapointed and asked to move! We were lucky and had a...

As soon as you arrive at the Crystal Palace you cant help but feel relaxed . I would class myself as well travelled along with my wife and the "mature friends" we travelled with. However we have returned - unusually- for the past three years to the Crystal Palace. Kefalonia is clearly a popular holiday destination and by hiring a...
