We have just returned from staying with Kostas for the second time this year.
We love the place so much we are booking again today for next year. Kostas and Alex are perfect hosts and they are always willing to help you in anyway they can. The atmosphere is so relaxed that we felt as if we had stayed for two weeks instead of one - we were hoping we had missed the plane on Saturday so we could stay.
Thanks again Kostas and hope to hear from you soon.
Kosmar is the tour operator. We have stayed at the Eleni 3 times since last June and getting married there in August.
Unfortunately Kostas is totally booked up - we went again in May and on returning to the UK we checked his availability - the only week he had available was 12th September but not sure if this is still the case.
We are going again in October but because Kostas is closing we have had to book other accommodation.
This was our fourth visit to the Eleni since last June - we absolutely love the place and it was very sad to leave last Sunday.
We actually got married in Argostoli on 10th August and Kostas and Alex joined our celebrations, along with Tony (best man) and Carole (chief bridesmaid). It was the best day of our lives and to have these people with us on the day was the icing on the cake.
Kostas made us an excellent 2 course meal which was mouth watering. You will probably see the pictures of the food on the website soon.
We were not stressed at all and 2 hours after the wedding we were back at the pool.
I would like to say a big `Thank you' to Carole, Tony, Kostas and Alex for a wonderful day.
See you in October Kostas and Alex.
we had an excellent holiday/honeymoon. we actually got married whilst we were there and kostas and alex came to our wedding and looked after us very well.
i would like to thank kostas and alex very much and also thanks to tony (the best man) and his wife carole (the chief bridesmaid) - we have been to the eleni 4 times since last june as the people and the place is wonderful.
many thanks again to you all and see you in october kostas.xxxxx
It is definitely Kosmar next year. I have been on their website and the Eleni is listed.
Sometimes the pictures do not go in until the 2nd or 3rd edition of the brochure.
Definitely Kosmar next year.
The only other one is Olympic who do the Fiona Hotel round the corner on the main road.
We visit Kefalonia a few times a year.
The place we usually stay had closed so we stayed at the Lara.
The staff did not speak and when they did they were very miserable. The owner did not speak either until we said goodbye on the last day.
The room was tiny but the cleaners came in every day to make the bed and change the towels - they smiled every time we met them.
We met some great people and if it wasn't for them I think we would have been totally depressed by the atmosphere at the hotel.
A `hello', `how are you' would have been nice, but nothing at all from the staff.
We were out of the hotel all day and didn't arrive back til evening but it was very quiet even with all the staff around.
All I can say to the staff is `be happy because life is too short' and you are living on a beautiful Island.
I would like to say a great big thank you to Kostas and Alex for another wonderful holiday.
This restaurant is one of the best or even the best in Lourdas.
Just returned from Lourdas and again I ate at the Andromeda every night. This restaurant is the best by far in Lourdas.
