While on the transfer bus from the airport, we were slightly worried because the Olympic rep was warning people not to expect too much from their apartments. She warned people of no utensils in the kitchen, no kettles, small rooms, extremely small showers and few amenities. Thankfully she was describing other people’s apartments because ours were great.
We had plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery, 3 hob cooker / oven, kettle, fridge etc and lots of cupboard space.
The bathroom was more than adequate and kept clean and the shower was big enough with a good flow of hot water.
The rooms were a reasonable size with plenty of wardrobe space and comfy beds. We had free satellite television and air-conditioning was available upon request. A cleaner came in every day to empty the bins and have a general tidy up and the sheets were changed twice a week.
The best part about this room was the view. Most rooms have a balcony overlooking the sea (with table and chairs provided) and it is well worth opening a bottle of Mythos and watching the sunsets, which are amazing in Kefalonia.
The Pool bar is very well equipped and serves good food and the prices are very competitive compared to the local café bars. The pool itself was clean and well maintained and there were more than enough sun loungers for everyone.
The location of Metaxatos is excellent. It is situated very close to the main part of Lassi where there are plenty of restaurants and a few good bars, however it is far enough out (5 min walk) so that you are not disturbed by any noise. It is also only 15 min walk away from Argostolli.
The only negative point about Metaxatos is that some of the rooms are close to a main road which is very busy during the morning. To be honest this was not too intrusive and we soon got used to it.
On the whole we thought the apartments were excellent and would have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
