I would recommend that people avoid this hotel, the owners are rude, the staff are anti-social, I have never stayed in a more unwelcoming environment in all my years of visiting Lourdas, which will be 10years this year. If first time travellers get the impression that this is how true Cephalonians are then I feel sorry for them, the mob at the hotel are certainly not reflective of the population as a whole.
Discovering this bar was one of the best parts of our holiday, after a day either lounging round the pool or out and about touring the island this bar is a welcome addition to the beach at Lourdas, and we were often to be found having a snifter or four of the many drinks on offer.All of these served by the wonderful Gina, what an absolute lovely girl, but chaps watch out one of the "hunks" who serves at the bar is her boyfriend and you could not ask for a nicer couple to run a bar, along with the other Makis. Highly recommended, and the games and internet access make it a good place to chill or to connect with the outside world.
Makis, you know that there is no pleasing some people, but if that is all they have to moan about then they are the ones with the problem, see you in 4weeks 6days, not that we are counting. To all other user of this website Bar Seven, is excellent great views, relaxed atmosphere and unpretenious staff and customers, well worth the visit, and it is about the same price as anywhere else on the island withe exception of Fiskardo, which is extortionately expensive.
I find it hard to believe the last two comments I have been visiting Lourdas for the past 12 years, and Klimatis is one of the best taverna's in the area, some people have to understand that if they go at the end of the season , the staff have been working flat out since April from morning till late in the evening/ early morning. So what if you have to wait for your meal or to be served, ever thought of getting up and speaking to the staff I find this normally helps, the staff at Klimatis are fabulous, amongst the best on the island having eaten in many places all over the island. So I would wholeheartedly recommend that if staying in Lourdas Klimatis is well worth the visit to eat, drink and relax by the sea.
With reference to the last comment Cr*p is another word which fits this bunch of cowboys better.
having just returned back home on sunday, first choice once again proved that they are the best tour operator to travel with, the flights both out and back were excellent, in fact the return flight left on time and we actually arrived twenty minutes earlier. organisation at the airport was brilliant, better than any other company which was flying out that day, in fact they are so good a company we have already booked next years holiday already with them. keep up the good work; and how the previous commentator can pass average marks when she did not even travel with the company is beyond me, and why was she listening to what was obviosuly a private conversation, and did she know all the facts and has she never b***hed about aspects of her job, we all do it.
