Stayed here in September and had a fantastic week, just wished it could have been longer.
Firstly, the hotel is in a great location. Agia Efimia is a very peaceful village and the views from the balcony across to Sami and Ithaca are stunning. There are several excellent tavernas and bars (none of them noisy) all less than 5 minutes stroll away from the hotel.
The rooms themselves are typical Greek studios in layout, but very well equipped, very comfortable and easily the biggest of this type I have stayed in before (even without the balcony). They are also spotlessly clean, in fact the whole hotel was gleaming.
Amalia and the staff certainly work hard to make sure every little detail is taken care of - thank you very much and hope to see you again next year.
P.S. Must also mention boat hire from Kefalonia Travel Office in the harbour. I was a bit apprehensive having never taken a boat out to sea alone before, but 15 mins tuition in the harbour and you're off. What a brilliant day out, cruising up the coast towards Fiskardo and stopping off at all the secluded coves on the way back - unforgettable.
