Have been to Doumas apartments twice with my family - and it just gets better. The apartment is spotless and Kyrina and Michaelas make everyone very welcome. Last year my friend broke her leg and the care we received from everyone was outstanding - they even delivered our evening meals up to the apartment for us. The pool is kept very clean and although there was some noise from the bar when the doors were open it wasn't enough to keep us awake. My 6 year old grandson loves the area and the apartments in particular. He's a fussy eater and he's known throughout the village as "sausage and chips". He always greets the waiters in the village by saying "kali spera" to them as we pass and they respond well to him. I'm going back this year, and staying for 3 weeks this time.
My husband and I stayed in these apartments 3 times - they were excellent. Kostas is on hand should any problems arise - he can be found downstairs in the gift shop. The quality of the furnishings is very good and everything is kept spotlessly clean. They are convenient for the village centre, but it's quite a trek to the beach! There's a pool at Makis apartments and another at the Hotel Gonatas by Paradise Beach. Car hire from Dennis at Geralimatos (shares the office with the Manos rep) is simple to arrange - make sure you have your UK licence with you though! The village has changed considerably over the past 10 years and not all of it has been for the best, but still a wonderful, laid back place to recharge your batteries.
the first time i stayed in Dumas,was my first time in kefalonia.i went with mum,sister and nephew.i am pleased to say that we had no problems with the appartment or the staff as stated by some idiot who stayed there..he obviously was in a minority of those brits who think you have to shout and speak down to the greeks.michaelos will do anything within his power to sort out any problems you may incure at this wonderfull location..speaking a little of the greek language will do more for you and will win you many friends as it has done for me,so much so,i will be working at dumas this year as the resident dj and helping nikos on the bar,so if anyone has doubts about visting this great place..as the nike ad says...just do it,and i'll even put my hand in my pocket and buy anyone a large beer who reads this and comes on my recommendation...i promise you'll be back every year and you will not be dissapointed
we'll folks anyone who has read my last comment and has booked to go to dumas will be in for a suprise..i'm not there any more,can't say too much but lets just say i've moved on to pastures new and a better work environment.So if you still want to go,do but if you want that free beer i offered then you'll have to come to skala and see me in siroco bar.well thats all for now except see you all in skala
I was in Katelios in July.I really enjoyed my holidays there.The weather was beautiful but the beach wasn't so good so I spent most of the time by the pool.There were 5 or 6 tavernas with really good food and few bars.I really enjoyed going at Nemesis,very good bar but I have to agree with Carol Jones about the dj,they need someome else for sure.He was cute, I really like him but I think Carol was right.I already booked for next June 13th.
