Hello to all going and been.
Personally my familly and I LOVED staying at Liberatos village but will first point out a few negative points, then many positive!
NEGATIVE-2.5 euro for a cold 330ml beer but 1.2 euro for a warm 500ml better bar population at the lower price would definitely happen.
Like wise with supermarket prices- the owners should look at buying bulk from LIDL on the outskirts of Argostoli and selling cheaper with same quality.
POSITIVE POINTS are that the staff will help with any thing in any way that they can and room cleaning and linen changing is done around the convienence of the guests, so no rude chucking out of apartment to suit cleaners!!
We and Liberatos experienced water supply problems from Argostoli and the maintenance guy did his very best to fix it at 11pm and we had water again by 8am and the fault lay with Argostoli council supply and a bit like here in the UK -you are at the councils mercy!
Excellent atmosphere around pool (except when buying drinks Ha Ha )- as the kids get to run and jump and splash and have a great holiday time in the water with as many inflatables as they can hold onto and big kid parents get to duck them and throw them about safely and have FUN!!!!!!!
We stayed in Stammo 3- a 2 room apartment and such an apartment quality in Aberdeen would fetch £650 per month BEFORE bills like water and electric. Grand view and well set out with enough equipment to use it as a real self catering as we made a good few meals and picnics.
Generally our stay in Kafalonia was great but the Euro prices are enough to throw a familly budget to hell. So a couple of RECOMENDATIONS for familles travelling on familly budgets:
Rent a car at 30 euro per day as you will save 10 per day on taxis and this gives you the freedom to go to supermarkets like LIDL and stock up economically and allow more freedom when you want. The bus system in our opinoin is too stretched out to be used as a sight seeing aid.
Take tins of food with you like tuna and other favourites as the prices are extortoinate e.g. tuna tin U.K.=69p KEF.=2.50(£2)!!
Tea bags are 10p each but coffee is same and also pays to shop about as some supermarket prices vary by as much as 100% for the same products.
Buy your beer, wine and water in LIDL and make use of your self catering fridge!!!!!
Freeze bottles of water in your self catering freezer and use the frozen bottles in a cooler bag for travelling and sight seeing.
Well I'd better shut up now but we are just back from a fantastic two weeks hol and if we had known what we knew by our second week we would have had an easier time with our hard saved pennies.
"PITA IN THE SQUARE" in Argostli is good food at low low prices.
GOOD LUCK on yer hols and you will love Kefalonia.
Malcolm and familly again - sorry to be bore but one point I ,missed and that is we did much touring of Kefalonia and looked at other places of accomodation in comparison to Liberatos and did not think you could do much better on a like for like basis with regards to situation and entertainment variety. BUT if on honey-moon then go to Fiskardo and enjoy nothing but ROMANCE.
