We have just returned from our perfect two week holiday in Katelios staying at the most excellent Efrosini Studios. When I was researching where to stay various comments below on this review site very much worried me, so I would like to set the record straight! We received maid service EVERY DAY and she was as friendly as a Russian lady that can speak no English can be lol - the standard of cleanliness was excellent and we recieved clean towels 3 times a week and clean sheets twice a week, she made our beds up every day too. The Studios themselves are basic but that is what you get in Greece and were of a very good standard, the kettle and toastie maker were a bonus too (you dont get them in all Greek accomodation) The pool was lovely and cleaned at least three times a week and the surrounding area was washed down every morning which I witnessed as I am an early riser on holiday and love my early swim.

This accomodation is perfect for couples and singles - very quiet, and when we went, after the school holidays, virtually child free, the few children that were there were exceptionally well behaved.
 
The staff were wonderful and the bar service excellent (you must try the breakfast! 4 Euro for the full english! Yum)
 
Katelios itself is a beautiful quiet resort with ample tavernas and bars for your evening entertainment - our recommendations are Taverna Katelios on the waterfront and Jerry's Elliniko further up the road near Efrosini both excellent food and service (house wine very good too) And for a lovely location for a drink or a snack try the Katelios beach bar. The beach is one of the best on the Island and swimming is brilliant here as there is no shelf and is shallow quite a way out.
 
The only downside was the obnoxious few people that were horrible to the cats, they are very much part of Kefalonia and if you don't like them please do not go.
 
Overall rating for Efrosini and Katelios Perfect!
