Returned home yesterday, after spending the BEST 2 weeks holiday ever!!; The Paspalis is perfect, superb location(and we travelled all over the Island),The resort of Skala has everything you could hope for; The Paspalis has a reputation for good food, and rightly deserved - as it was superb,varied, very tasty and extremely reasonable.
The location is better than could have been expected, across the road from the beach, wonderful sea views,from pool,on balcony, and whilst eating; a very short, and pleasant walk to the high street, and 2 FREE outdoor 'Cinemas'(with bars!!), within 20 Seconds/ 2 mins walk away- showing all the latest releases.
The staff at the Paspalis rate the best we have found anywhere,a very personal and truly friendly touch, no falseness.
Our 'new mate' Ria, was an absolute 'Babe', so friendly and efficient, Thanks also to Hercules and 'Smiler' ('not Elvis'), and to our little Northern lass Claire, the only Brit working there, and in her first week, she was a breath of fresh air - Good luck kiddo xx
The owner Nikos, and all his family, really put in a lot of hours and energy to ensure you have a good holiday - and Nikos's wife has a FANTASTIC shop on the High Street, with the most amazing Jewellary!!
Kefalonia is absolutely breathtaking, so green and lush, with scenery too die for!!
We have never returned to one of our holiday destinations before - as the world is a big place - but it is all here.
We only hope that we will be lucky enough to get a booking at the Paspalis next year, and for many years to come; Who needs to look any further, when Skala and The Paspalis has it all!!!
Must just give a mention to our Thomas Cooke Rep, Ruth - she was a real 'mate' and an asset to our holiday, she was so friendly and informative of local features and full of 'tips' you normally don't get from the robots of Rep school.
This is the first time we have ever written a 'Review', but felt the The Paspalis, Skala, and Kefalonia more that deserved the time and effort - put it this way, we WILL be going back to Skala, and if we are not fortunate enough to gain booking with the Paspalis, we shall accept anywhere in Skala - and walk down to use the facilities, pool and food (open to non residents,as we discovered previous guests were doing),Thats how good the Paspalis is !!!
Thankyou Paspalis, I raise a glass of Ouzo to you tonight,Yamass, and say thanks for the rest, relaxation and care which you gave us the last two weeks - EFKARISTO (Thankyou),ISSTO EPANIDHIN (see you soon)
