Quiet hotel away from busier resorts.

Posted Oct 2, 2017
We chose Panas because it offered a quieter, more relaxing holiday than any of the bigger resorts. We were lucky to have a room with a lovely view of the sea and the sunrise every morning. The owners and staff were very friendly and the provision of a fridge in the room allowed us to store cold drinks, a boon in the very warm weather. The food was generally good, especially the fresh fish. Unfortunately, there is little variety in the species available compared with some years ago due to overfishing. Farmed bass and bream are now the staple fish. Surprisingly, the only other restaurant nearby overlooked its fish despite claiming to be a fish restaurant. You should be aware that the nearest village, Spartia, is a prohibitively long and steep walk away. You really do need a car if you don't want to be confined to the hotel and beach. Spartia does have a very nice, family run taverna which made a welcome alternative to our hotel. Because of its remoteness and the island's small and winding roads, getting to other parts of Kefalonia is a challenge but worth it. Mirtos beach and Assos in the north west are truly beautiful. Beware of you use Google Maps to navigate that it can direct you on to some tiny roads and seems unable to differentiate between a metalled road and a dirt track! Overall, this hotel and location suited our need for a quiet and relaxing resort on a beautiful island.

Wonderfully Relaxing

Posted Aug 16, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, friendliness, location, food.
Cons: AirCon in the room could have been cooler at night - but as it was so (wonderfully) hot while we were there any unit would have struggled
Location: Beautifully remote, but only approx. 20 mins from Argostoli (North) and Lourdata (South)
Lovely traditional hotel in a beautiful secluded location. Run by Nana Panas and her family who could not be more welcoming and helpful. 30 metres from a sandy beach with crystal clear shallow water perfect for swimmers and non-swimmers alike. Great freshly cooked food at good prices. A car is ideal due to the location but Taxis are readily available from reception. Thoroughly recommended as a welcome alternative to typical resort hotels.

Far from the madding crowd.

Posted Jan 8, 2015
Lovely little family run hotel yards away from sea and little beach. Our room was fine all stone quite cave like,clean,basic did have a fridge which was very handy.Definitely need transport as quite a way from tourist areas.hired a car thanks to Nana! Drove all over the island and highly recommend getting the ferry to Zante from the tiny port round the corner from hotel. If you dont mind being away from it all its perfect and the family were so lovely and would do all they could to help. Local fishermen go off on their boats from the beach and gather at the little shelter near the car park. We had a great time so if your not too bothered about luxury its a perfect Base.

Nice hotel, close to beach

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Nice people, nice rooms & dining area
Cons: Different fruit at breakfast (only peaches)
Location: Right above a nice beach, not far from airport, (25 euro) quite remote but you can walk up steep hill to another beach & village of Spartia
We stayed one week at Panas, its a lovely place & we would definitely go back, right above a nice beach, not far from airport, (25 euro) but quite remote, you can walk up steep hill to another beach & village of Spartia & you can park hire car at hotel & get around the island Rooms are nice, basic but clean & with balcony over looking the sea, people are lovely, Michaelis is wonderful, everyone friendly & very helpful, food is very good & there is another taverna right opposite

A lovely spot with all thats needed

Posted Jun 22, 2014
Pros: Position, just above small quiet beach and a well run hotel & restaurant with friendly staff.
Cons: Breakfast - fresh fruit, better juice, and some local cheese/salami would be nicer
Location: No where is very far if you have a car .
Early June this was exactly what we wanted - a quiet spot with very basic but clean comfortable rooms and helpful staff. Just above the beach, with hardly anyone there, it was unspoilt and a beautiful spot for bathing. Very difficult to find by car -but you do need a car to get about & see the island. The restaurant was perfectly fine for all meals - though some fresh fruit at breakfast would be nice & more local produce. Plenty of options for evening meals within 10 - 15 minutes drive. The place is well run, problems sorted quickly, and staff very helpful. Might become noisy if hotel full - hard stone floors, noisy plumbing etc - but idyllic for us when so quiet early in the season

Lovely people, lovely bed!

Posted Sep 26, 2013
Cons: No shower curtain in "bathroom", which means floor is constantly getting wet.. not much of a problem, except when you need to sit down on the toilet!
Location: Other tavernas in walking distance, but we didn't use them. Organic one in metataxa, En Keffalini, very good, so is Olivegrove. both a 10 min drive.
Excellent staff, Nice soft mattresses. Good food in taverna for lunch and dinner, though menu not extensive. Both fish and mousakka were excellent!

Lovely stay, close to Argostoli by car

Posted Jul 28, 2013
Pros: Amazing customer service; very helpful staff and clean rooms
Cons: Lots of bees in the dining area. Dot necessarily sting but uncomfortable to be around
Location: Family beach in front of the hotel, 10min drive from Argostoli (main town) and beachside towns to the easy. Winding road to find the hotel though.
Lovely hotel, fantastic service, Nana will look after you! Great breakfast included... as long as you don't mind sharing with bees! Cleaned rooms daily. Overall recommend staying at Panas!
