Poseidon Hotel - (Accommodation in Lixouri)

Don D           

Stayed here as part of a Thomson Holiday package - bed and breakfast.The hotel is ok though nothing to get excited about. The breakfast we had was bread & jam, yogurt, tea or coffee and orange. You could buy a cooked breakfast if you wanted it. Everthing seemed to cost extra, t.v, fan. (A/C not turned on) Handy position for walk into town and Lepeda beach a 20 min walk away. We were told we could use Summery Hotel pool - but that cost. As a Thomson client we walked up to the Paletino hotel and used that for free. It seemed a better place, but further out. We enjoyed our holiday, but we did not go expecting too much!

Anti Samos Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

We went in August, It was very busy and the only place where there were car parking charges. A beautiful bay set in amongst green hills. White pebble beach gave the water a beautiful blue clour and the water was very clear. The beach shelves very quickly and before you know it you are in VERY deep water. Not so good for those who are not confident in the water. I dread to think what it might be like if the water was not calm. Worth a visit, but be careful.

Lepada Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

A small sandy beach with nice little housed virtually on the beach at the back. Interesting Rocks to swim out to and which attract fish. This is the closest decent beach to Lixouri and is well worth a visit. The only down side is the very steep slope down to the beach - I'm sure it got even steeper on the way back up!.

Fiskardo - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Don D           

We went not expecting to like it because we had heard about it being a "Poser-place". We thought that it was lovely for all the pretention, The drive there is something else though! Visited a nice beach just outside of Fiskado as we left - expected it to be very busy but were surprised it wasn't. It was really VERY nice. Ignore my gradings for nightlife - only there during day.

Stayed at Poseidon Hotel, Lixouri - See comments there. We were satisfied with the service we received. We didn't do trips, preferring to do our own thing. The rep, Jan, was a pleasant friendly person who gave the impression that she would be helpful if needed.
