Accommodation in Skala

click to enlargeEverything good you've read about this hotel is absolutely true.  Apart from the beautiful surroundings and the excellent food and drink, the most memorable feature of 9 Muses is the lovely, friendly, and attentive staff - Tachis, Dennis, Nikos, and the lovely blond lady in the restaurant - Manolis with his wonderful cocktails - and the cleaners with their fascinating models folded out of the clean towels.

Truly a great experience.

click to enlarge click to enlarge We just got back from Nine muses and what an immaculate hotel and setting. We were in an apartment at the rear facing the mountains, but to your right you could see the sea! in a village like setting within its own complex, with a small chapel which luckily had a wedding one day, which was lovely.

The room was large, very clean and clean sheets and towels everyday.
Skala is a pretty place, beach straight over the road, a five minute walk to centre with plenty of bars and places to eat, The pines was gorgeous food! we tried somewhere different every night, everyone so friendly, majority of tourists are english which was really nice, met alot of nice couples.
Never been in may before, weather was abit iffy, cloudy and sunny, rain, a few nights you needed a cardigan.
Will definately go back again next year, beautiful location, and hotel, gardens are a credit, all in full bloom.

Just back from our second vist, same staff as last year and all still very friendly, without doubt the best hotel in Scala.

My husband and I have stayed in Scala three times and it is one of our favourite places to visit. We were recommended the 9 Muses Hotel by a work colleague and were not disappointed. It was fabulous, the staff were very friendly and the room was spacious and clean, the beach was literally a walk across the road. We are hoping to visit again next year and will definately stay at the 9 Muses again.

Everything mentioned in the earlier comments still apply. We would reccomend this hotel without exception.Our only minor gripe was that the breakfast (we were B&B) could have been more varied given the cost of the holiday and that the Vesta Junior pool was very cold, but this may not be so much of a problem later in the season.Special mention to Athena (sic) who looked after the Vesta Junior pool bar, she was brilliant!

OMG  This hotel was amazing! It is perfect for a relaxing break, in my opinion it was the best family holiday I've had.
If you want to visit Kefalonia then you should stay at 9 Muses.
Here are some pictures of the room, view from our balcony and a picture of the second pool.

This hotel is amazing, i loved every minute of my stay, if i had more money i would of easily stayed longer!!the staff where so nice and friendly, everything about the island was fantastic.Defo for going back again for up and coming years to same hotel!!!  

Vicky F          10/10

Booked on strength of reviews and wasnt disappointed in the slightest.  Apartments and surroundings eg pools and gardens so clean and well kept.  Location perfect ie across the road from the beach.  Air cond high tech eg remote controlled.  Large studio with adequate facilities eg kettle/toaster etc.  Shower fab ie powerful and very big (unlike most showers in greece that seem to flood bathroom!) All in all couldnt fault this place. Staff very friendly and great service.  You can lie on beach all day and be waited on by Mick who works for hotel - he will run backwards and forwards for you all day fetching food and drink!  Cocktails lovely - happy hour from 6-8 although still 5 euros each (well you are on holiday!!) Limited bar snacks but still very nice - greek salad lovely.  def recommend eating in hotel's restaurant overlooking the beach.  Not that expensive and again great service.  Had pasta twice. about 7 euros and rated 9/10.

First time to Kefalonia, Skala after fifteen years visiting KOS....we could not have choosen a more perfect location for a week chilling out. The Complex was wonderful, up at 0900hrs every morning for a dip on our own in the excellant pool, friendly staff, air con. rooms, TV for the UK News if you were interested ! !   Picture is from the pool area looking towards the beautiful appartments.

A definite future return visit.  Thanks to the 9Muses for a wonderful break from daily UK routine.

Hi Claire, 
Just a quick note regarding the Nine Muses pool.  You couldn't wish for a more peaceful setting for a swimming pool.  I have stayed at the Nine Muses several times and in fact have a fortnight booked later this year.
The road that you are referring to alongside the swimming pool is actually the driveway within the hotel grounds; it is only used by hotel guests and is very quiet.
When ever I have stayed at the Muses the majority go topless around the pool so I don't think you will feel out of place!
Go ahead.......................I don't think you'll regret it booking the Nine Muses.


The Nine Muses is a fantastic hotel.  We visited in July 2006 after reading rave reviews about the place - we even got a cheap deal with First Choice so it was well worth the cost.  We would pay full price to go back now we've been.  The rooms were lovely with power showers and gorgeous little balconies - they even had airconditioning which in Greece is very rare.  The bar area was great and the guys behind the bar did the BEST cocktails. We never found getting a sunbed a problem and just had an amazing time.

This hotel is wonderful.  We had a taxi to the hotel due to the long transfer by coach. We have never had a taxi transfer before and wondered how we would be greeted on arrival at the hotel.  This view is based on previous arrivals in Spain and the Canary's where they barely acknowledge you on arrival.  However Parwane greeted us and she was lovely.  She cheked us in no problem and showed us to our room.  Everyone at this hotel is amazingly friendly.  It is spotlessly clean everywhere, even the loos by the pool.  The pool bar is ace, not massive menu but just enough, clean, tidy, great service and always a friendly smile.  We enjoyed the Chef Salad, but 1 between 2 as they were rather large.  Nine Muses was recommended to us by a friend and she really raved about it and we did think we would find something wrong with it as we are real Victor Meldrews! Probably because our last few hols have been to the Canarys for some winter sun.  Nobody appears to be friendly there.  But, no, we couldn't fault Nine Muses - its ace !

Definitely visit this hotel if you are a couple of any age (its mainly adults, no children and we would like to keep it that way) looking for a nice quiet peaceful holiday with a short walk to many restaurants serving good Greek food and drink.

  My wife and I have just returned from two weeks at 'Nine Muses' and found it to be quite the nicest place we have stayed in. Close proximity to the beach. Large, airy room with kitchenette and wonderful shower room. Friendly and helpful staff. Air conditioning. Very nice bar overlooking the pool. This was our sixth visit to Skala and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The gardens are beautiful, the architecture appealing and the whole complex spotlessly clean.

'Nine Muses' seems to attract very nice people. There were no kids monopolising the pool and we felt that all the staff were determined that we should enjoy a wonderful holiday. We will, certainly, book for next year.

     We stayed at Nine Muses in May 2005 and have rebooked for May 2006.
     The staff are fantastic and the facilities are expectional.
We had one of the suites on two floors which was beautiful.
The pool and gardens are superbly looked after by Peter and his staff and Parwane is wonderful!!
Would recommend it to anyone who wants an exceptional stay on Kefalonia.

Just got back from our second time at Nine Mues.  The weather wasn't as hot as last year, but we still had days when it was too hot to sit directly in the sun.  We actually saw some rain this year, last year we didn't even see a cloud.

Nine Muses is THE place to stay in Kefalonia.  You cannot fault it.  The staff are polite and helpful and will do all they can to help you if you need it.  The pool, rooms and surrounding area are spotlessly clean and the bathrooms have the best showers I have ever seen abroad.  We didn't have such a good view from our balcony this year - we had an inland view instead of a sea view and unfortunately we also had the boiler that heats the hot water for the entire complex next to our room which was very noisy.  Bearable during the day but not good at night.
Entertainment is nil apart from the odd quiz night and Greek night, but if you want a nice relaxing holiday that is geared for adults only, Nine Muses won't disappoint.  We spent every night having a quiet drink in the pool bar after our evening meal and we loved it.
We had a fantastic time again this year and we will be going back!

Hi Wendy Yes, there are a couple of cash machines in Scala.

Wendy J

Could someone let me know if Skala has any cash machines in the resort? Thanks.

We went back to the Nine Muses this year after visiting their last year.  Again the hotel was excellent.  The rooms are of a very good quality and kept very clean and the bathrooms are lovely.  We had a lovely view from our room of the sea and mountains so excellent for sitting on the balcony in the morning and evening.  The weather ruined it for us this year as the first week was cold and windy but it improved the 2nd week!

We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.  The grounds and pool are kept lovely and very pleasant sitting having breakfast overlooking the sea.  It is only a 5-10 minute stroll into Skala and all the tavernas so the location is excellent.  We did not want to come home!

We returned from the Nine Muse on May 17th.  Although I would have to say that Kefalonia isn't my favorite Greek Island, the Nine Muse is def my favorite place to stay.  This hotel is wonderful.  Lovely staff, lovely rooms, wonderful bathrooms with full shower cubicles!!!!!
We ate in the Aeolos restaurant nearly every night which was very good and good value too.
Ate in the Pines once or twice, very nice if not a bit over rated.
Pools and sea very cold at the moment, a heated pool would have been wonderful.
I would think this hotel is more suited to couples looking for a quiet holiday.  Def not for families.
 Well done Nine Muses.
