We stayed for 5 nights in apartment 2 which we loved because of the balconies with fantastic west facing views of the ionian - so relaxing watching the sun set each evening over the sea. The apartment was attractively furnished with a very comfortable king size bed and lovely contemporary bathroom with excellent shower and sea view. The living room was a little sparse, but we weren't spending time inside so it didn't matter.
Lovely pool area which we had to ourselves quite often, and friendly staff.
The breakfast could perhaps be improved, as the juice wasn't very nice and there were no pastries. More fresh fruit could also be provided such as melon, peaches, nectarines etc. The biggest issue at breakfast time was wasps, which made it impossible to sit at the tables near the breakfast buffet as they swarmed around you, and breakfast had to be taken to our apartment. When we mentioned this we were told it was 'nature' but that isn't really an adequate answer, when they are causing a nuisance, and need to be dealt with.
We enjoy walking and found dafnoudi an excellent base for walking the lovely marked trails around the northern tip of kefalonia. There's a board showing a map of the trails in antipata and also in fiskardo. A photo of this on my phone was sufficient with all the signposts to work our way round them.
It was handy having a grocery shop and taverna within 5 mins walk of the apartments, and when it was cooler in the evening, the 20 min walk into manganos was fine and there are 3 tavernas there.
Very good hotel, excellent room with the best walk in shower with amazing view, great comfortable bed and kitchenette, silent air conditioning, the room was great the pool was good but only natural shade from trees and shrubs but would get bit to death, the breakfast was adequate but we gave up after the second morning as got fed up with the wasp infestation, there’s a great local restaurant within 5 min walk, the Hotel is a six euro taxi ride to Fiscardo port, we tried the suggested 20 mins short cut walk into Fiscardo that took 50 mins in 40 degrees heat, not the best idea. We never walked back up the hill as would have killed us.....6 euros for a taxi is a bargain. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would return.
Beautiful hotel. Alex greeted us with a gorgeous smile. So relaxing and our room was lovely. We had our own beautiful garden courtyard. Pool is big and so clean and quiet. Loved everything about this place. Will definitely comeback. Great area of the island.
We had a great 5 night stay at Dafnoudi Hotel after a busy first week in Sami. This is a beautiful area to stay and being close to Fiskardo and Asos is a bonus. The hotel was lovely and our room, with a walk in shower, was cleaned every day. The staff were all very helpful when needed. There was a nice restaurant 5 minute walk away ( The Old Stone house ) and Dafnoudi beach just around the corner. If there was a criticism our room could have done with a toaster, but hey ho it is Greece. Loved it thank you Dafnoudi
We spent two nights at the Dafnoudi Hotel whilst visiting Fiskardo and the surrounding area. Room was a good size, with comfortable beds and a good shower. There are nice grounds with a pool where we sat on the terrace for breakfast which was plentiful. Unfortunately the weather was terrible with heavy rain on our first day but we still enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Walked through a forest to Dafnoudi beach which was very pleasant and Fiskardo is definitely worth seeing.
