Very nice hotel!Posted Sep 9, 2013
Cons: The gym is really bad! Very small, very little equipment and what they do have, some of it doesn't work. It was a big disappointment.
Location: Wonderful beaches (Myrtos is one), very pretty villages and restaurants.
This was our first time to Kefalonia so when we were booking, we didn't know about the various regions and places to stay, but we did well in choosing The Apollonion. The hotel is new, the rooms are very nice and the food and staff are very good. The staff are professional, courteous and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast is outstanding and the dinners were also very good. Lots of choice...some items were staples on the dinner menu (like the greek salad etc) but the main dinner choices were different each evening. No complaints at all about this hotel except for the gym, which was a big disappointment and not the quality you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. We ended up jogging in the morning around the local area instead of using the gym. We had a rental car so we were able to drive to different beaches each day. I would highly recommend renting a car because otherwise you are kind of stuck at the hotel when there are plenty of lovely villages and beaches to explore. Xi Beach is a 2 minute walk from the hotel but we only went there once. The beach is red sand and very shallow...many more better beaches locally to go to. We are seasoned travelers and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Clean and comfortable, close to the beach.Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: Friendly and attentive staff Nice pool Close to the beach Free wifi
Cons: Very loud music in the bar area with the same songs played each night Buffet dinner a bit repetitive and lukewarm Wifi patchy and slow in the evenings
Location: Very close to Xi beach and within walking distance of a few decent tavernas. 10 minutes or so by car fro Lixouri
My wife and I stayed for a week at the end of July in a "deluxe double room". We had a lovely time on Kefalonia and would return to this hotel again, however be aware that it is not a 5 star hotel by the usual western standards but a 4 star. That said I doubt you could find a better hotel on the Pali peninsula.

Nice relaxing hotel for a familyPosted Jun 19, 2013
Pros: the pool
Cons: impact on the local landscape - did not feel as this was taken into consideration
Location: Xi beach is a nice quiet area of the island. Beach is good for children and there are some facilities near by such as shop and taverna.
We were looking for a relaxing hotel which also had facilities for a young child (3-yrs old). The facilities for children were quite basic but well constructed and in good condition. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and would go out of their way to ensure our child was happy. The pool area was clean and it never felt busy even though we knew the hotel to be full during our stay. Food was good quality and there was plenty with lots of options at each meal. During our 2 weeks the menu was repeated but this did not detract from our stay.
