Skala Resort - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

David H          5/10

  Got back from Skala a week ago.

It was our tenth visit to Kefalonia (usually Skala, but not for the last few years). It was also our 51st visit to Greece, so we do have a little bit of experience.
Does Skala really need loud music bars? Watch this space, folks.
 
As for check-in at the airport...words fail me. A ten year old could organize it better - absolutely DIRE.
(I thought Zakynthos was bad, but worth putting up with several times a year)
Kefalonia is pretty, but it's becoming pretty awful - and expensive, too.
 
If Kefalonians aren't careful the Croations will eat their lunch.
 
By the way if you are staying in Skala with Thomsons watch out for self-assured Sarah. She knows ALL the answers. Unfortunately many of them are wrong.

 I think Mandy is spot on with her comments.

Unfortunately Skala is rapidly being spoiled by the new developments. Our recent visit will be our last.
 
It's rather sad really and sad also that only the threat of legal action from the Katelios Marine Turtle group put a halt to recent plans for a deep water port at Katelios. Can you believe that! A deep water port in Katelios! 
The secret of selling a good product is to know your market. Someone is losing the plot here.
 
I know that visitor numbers to Zakynthos are well down this year,which has actually made it very easy for us to go back three times already. Kefalonia will surely follow that trend with this sort of thinking.
