My husband and I are visiting the Pericles in October this year. It's our first time on Kefalonia but we have been to Greece many times.
Last year we found the restaurants on Crete had become very expensive so we have opted for half board at the Pericles can anyone tell us about the food there and we love Greek food.
Its great to get all this info before you visit a place. We are off in October a long time yet I know but we can't wait. It sounds great. Does anyone know if you can still get trips to Italy from Sami harbour. And is the walk into Sami from the hotel a long one as I have arthritis in my knee and if it is we will have to hire a car. I understand the rep has the best deals. We'll keep watching this site and are very interested in all the news and views.
Great Stuart it's just what we wanted your report of the hotel was superb. It tells us everything we want to know and we can't wait to get there in October. Its sounds great. Thanks.
My husband and I have just returned from two weeks at the Pericles Hotel in Sami, it was great. Sami and indeed all of Cephalonia is great, really laid back. The Pericles is a good base we went half board and the food was adequate and reasonably priced. The hotel is very clean and the pool is great but very cold. The lounge area seating is not good though as you cannot get out of the soft chairs once you are in them (most uncomfortable). Also the television only seems to show BBC world news. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Sami itself is a lovely place and we aimed each day ti sit in Captain Corelli's for our mornoing coffee and again at lunchtime for his great souvlaki's in pitta a real treat and reasonable too.We hired a car and went all over the isalnd but if you prefer take a taxi they are very cheap and comfortable. We are looking forward to our next visit to Sami and Cephalonia.
