This is the most awful accommodation I have had to stay in. It ruined the start of our holiday until we found ourselves an alternative place to stay. If you want to stay in a dark, dingy, dirty garage type room with a locked metal shutter at the only window, miserable staff, paper thin walls, on a busy through road then this is the place for you. Over rated by Sun Isle holidays and severely over priced.
We stayed in the Metaxatos in October this year and we found the apartments very well maintained and clean, the staff were very friendly and our cleaner called in everyday.
Hello everyone, I am only 14 and i am loving greece, it ismy first time abroad and i love it, i and my family have not had any problems on this stay here, we are very thankful to all the kindness off of the staff I think we will have a great time for the rest of our stay and i'd just like to say thank you to everyone at the METAXATOS APARTMENTS, thanks for the great stay, and ill be very sad to leave.
We are going back to Metaxatos apartments for third year running this September. We found the apartments great. Very clean with beautiful sunsets. The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite. The bars and restaurants are really good too. Try Nefelis when your there. Meals are really tasty and the staff are very polite too.
I have spent my holidays with my family at this fantastic well organized hotel. Definetally next time on our next visit to the island we ll choose Metaxatos apartements again.
These appartments are well located, the staff friendly and the views are spectacular. I really enjoyed my time here and look forward to going over again in August this year.
We really enjoyed enjoyed our stay in our Metaxatos apartment, with its wonderful views and glorious sunsets. Very well located with easy access to the beach and to the main town of Argostoli, this holiday was a real treat. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we are looking forward to being there again soon.
I am really very sorry for all the inconvinience caused last summer to Mr. Woodruff's family during their stay at Metaxatos Apartments. I deeply apologise Mr. Woodruff for all the problems you have had. Our aim is our guests to be satisfied and happy and we do our best for it. Last year it happened our family to have to be away for most of the time during summer and this was the main reason for some problems not to be handled the best possible way.
For summer 2007 everything has been taken care for, we have renovated all bathrooms and kitchenettes in the studios, so there will be no problems of this type any more. We shall also be here at the premises to serve you better and meet your needs. We run these apartments for many years we never had serious problems in the contrary we have many satisfied customers who come year after year.
This year the place is better than ever waiting to welcome you. Looking forward to meet all of you who are planning to stay with us, I wish everybody safe flights.
P.S. I am also very sorry for what happened to Mrs Paula Duckworth. This is something between her and Olympic Holidays and we have nothing to do whatsoever. If it was up to me I would have found a way to accomodate her baby without problems.
Stayed at the Metaxatos studios in August 2006 and found the site untidy, many of the lights around the site were switched off,leaving you to stumble in the darkness back to your apartment, the smell from the drains was dreadful, and around the edges of the pool, and we were without a toilet for three days,so we had to flush the loo using a bucket of water. One of the reasons for choosing this accomodation was for the childrens play facilities,however, the swings and other "toys" were broken or just in an awful state of repair. My family and I have been visiting Kefalonia now for 14 years and this site was the worst we have experienced. Unfortunately, Olympic Holidays did not want to know, and the Metaxatos staff although very polite and friendly just did not seem to know what to do
Also 5 minutes away is the local supermarket which sells everything. And only 20 minutes walk away is Argostoli, which is quite lively at times and a good place to eat and drink, or just walk along the harbour and spot some turtles!
The apartments are a reasonable size, clean and well stocked. They also have a TV with a couple of English news channels if you want to keep up to date with events whilst having a siesta! The balconies and terraces are a great size.
The only problem with Metaxatos is the smell from the bathroom. I've been to Greece many times before, but it was definitly the worst I had smelt this time round. The drains and sewers smell quite bad. Not pleasant, though it is all part and parcel of a holiday in Greece.
We didn't stay in these apartments but we regularly used the pool bar there and it is very nice, very clean, free sunbeds and friendly staff, also lovely view across the sea!
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.
Just got back yesterday and we've definately got holiday blues! We both had a lovely time and it was just as good as last year. We would recommend these apartments as they are in a good location and they have the most amazing views. The apartments are very clean and the maids came in almost every day to clean and tidy our room. The weather was very hot - well into the 30's each day! If your considering going to Kefalonia - stay here! We can't wait to go back again!
me and my boyfriend are going back to these appartments again this sept as we enjoyed ourselves so much last year! the apartments were so clean and well equipt we couldn't have asked for more! can't wait to go back - really looking forward to seeing those beautiful sunsets from our terrace......
Can't wait to go back, waking up after arriving on a late flight to beautiful views over the bay was just wonderful. Athena and her family realy made this a holiday to remember. The apartment were beautifully clean and the best equiped we have ever stayed in, TV (in both bedrooms), kettle, teapot, shower curtain, toaster and enough crockery to have a part, the best equiped apartments we have ever stayed in. The pool and surrounding area are extemly clean and pleanty of room for all and enough sunbeds for every one. Ice cold beer, perfect Frappe and the most tasty snacks all made from organic fruit and veg from the family farm with something for everyone. Everyone was very helpful and so friendly it was like staying with your best friends. Perfectly situated for Lassi and Argostoli, close enough for fun, far enough away to relax. Looking at vaious other accomadations the Mataxatos apartments are in a perfect position to relax, have fun and to explore.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 1 week holiday to the Metaxatos apartments. We had a fantastic time. Having never visited any of the Greek islands before we were really looking forward to a nice relaxing holiday with some great beaches. And we weren't disappointed. Our 1 bedroom apartment was very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The room was very clean, and we had maid service every day with clean towels. Our room was by the road which was fairly noisey, but we certainly had no trouble sleeping. There were plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, and it was nice to know that no-body was up and about until about 11am. We will certainly be returning next year.
Anybody wanting a excellent place to stay in lassi, should stay here, the appartments (4 the one we stayed in ) was very spacious and the views from the balcony looking over to Lixouri are fabulous also looking down towards the pool bar were most of the time you will find Athina the bar manager running around doing a splendid job!!! ( see picture ) The complex is kept tidy and clean, and ideally situated to walk into Lassi or Argostoli.
We stayed at the Metaxatos Apartments for a week in June this year and they were fab !! Very clean and such a friendly place. The Pool area was great and the bar also - lovely views from there and our balcony across the bay. Though we thought we would be away from the centre of Lassi it was very close to all the bars/restaurants with a bit of a walk to the main beach (which is great - water lovely and shallow). Also a short walk from Argostoli. Will definately be going back to Kefalonia and would highly recommend Lassi and Metaxatos apartments.
We thought these apartments were amazing too!although no one has mentioned about the spectacular view from the pool-its lovely,you can look over the sea and see the whole of lixouri,its lovely and definatly worth a look even if not staying at these apartments (but why would you not, their great!)
Their website is www.metaxatos.gr and you can e-mail them through the contact page.
Some of the studios & apartments are very close to the car parking area(the lowest block on the site)and it is a fairly level footpath linking the two.If I were you I would e-mail/'phone Marianna (the owner) direct and explain your concerns and see if she can guarantee some suitable accommodation to suit your needs. The site is generally very steep from the main road(to Argostoli)at the top to the coast road at the bottom with a reasonably gentle slope across the site from the car parking area up to the swimming pool & bar area. My main concern for you would be that the tour operator's coach can only drop off/pick up at the main road at the top of the site and when we were there last year everyone had to handle their own luggage up and down very steep footpaths & steps.If you are willing to pay for the taxi fares to & from the airport(20 minutes drive & inexpensive)then that would solve this problem. As regards the standard of accommodation please see my comments after our stay last September. Hope this is of some help to you and have a wonderful holiday wherever you stay.
Once again my husband (Mick) & I have stayed at the Metaxatos apartments and can honestly say that they are the best we have stayed at having visited Lassi many times over the last 3 years. The apartments are well equiped and comfortable. The cleaners were in practically every day. Marianna (the owner) and her family made you feel very welcome. The pool bar now run by Athena (Marianna's daughter) is friendly, the food excellent as is the service and you were made to feel so welcome. Alexander (Athena's brother is such a character). The BBQ was fantastic and Mr Metaxatos is ace at Greek dancing, he had most of us joining in, what a night! Thankyou for such a memorable stay and we will see you all again later this year.
My Fiance and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Metaxatos Apartments, which we found to be the best accomodation we have ever stayed in!
Have just had a great weeks holiday at the Metaxatos Apartments.Mariana and her family are now running the bar and creating a nice friendly atmosphere.The weekly BBQ was realy good and the dancing very entertaining! Keep up the good work.
My previous comment had the wrong ratings for location, quietness and cleanliness, these are our correct opinions.
