I went to Kefalonia with my family this July, we were staying in the Ionian Sea hotel near Kounopetra beach and we all were COMPLETELY satisfied firstly with the accommodation and the service, secondly with the beaches and the sea which is crystal clear and so perfect either for swimming, for water sports and games or simply for enjoying the sea as such, thirdly with the meals and drinks which were according to taste of any visitor - there is really really a small chance you wouldn't like any of those, and of course we were absolutely satisfied with all the staff members who were extremely nice, friendly, helpful and professional - they all do their best to make their visitors welcome and happy, then they are happy too. I can definitely recommend. For those who love going on trips I recommend Lixouri, Argostoli, Myrtos beach, Assos, Melissani but personally I loved staying in this part of Kefalonia - in this hotel.

Ionian Sea Hotel & Villas - Aqua Park is the best place for an authentic greek holiday. It is super close to the beach, the all inclusive food is one of the best i've had, the staff is so smiley and friendly and all the COVID protocols made me feel very safe. In fact, i actually forgot that there was a pandemic, so thank you very much for that. The location is perfect for the time that we are living because it's not located in a crowded area, and the long beach provides enough distance to enjoy the sun, the sand and the cristal blue water. You can also lay by the pools all day or go to the aquapark, or you can go for nice walks along the seaside. What i also liked is that you can see the sunrise form the closest beach (like 100 meters from the hotel) or the sunset (5 minutes walking distance from the hotel). During the evenings the animation team here provided us wits lots of entertainment, so no need to search for other places to have fun. I will definitely come back, because i had a great time here. In the end, a big thank you to the hotel management team, i can only imagine the things you had to do to make us all feel safe and happy in the same time.

The hotel is a little remote, car hire is a must. We booked B&B but changed to room only as every meal time guests were having to queue. The rooms are clean but basic. The staff at the water park were great, very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was the greek guy on reception who on several occasions was rude & obnoxious to us, he let the rest of the team down as everyone else was lovely.

Let's start with the positive points The people who work their butts off to please holiday makers are a dream team 😇 they made our stay worth while and are real sweethearts. First impression we were greeted by a bubbly smiling lovely lady named Irini She was wonderful and works day and night with a smile on her face to keep the resort clean and tidy, and my children adored seeing her each day throughout our visit. Room was always fresh and clean throughout our stay and the view was stunning of the ocean. Pools were adequate never over crowded and always free sunbeds so no rush in the mornings(possibly due to less people because of covid?) Bar staff makis and vaggelis were cheeky chaps and always service with a smile. Special mention to George who never failed to please and was always very fun and happy to talk and laugh with us, nothing was ever too much and it was always service with a smile from this lovely man. Christos the gentleman who sees us in to the food hall was always smiling and very polite and happy to see us. The animation team WOW!! Ewa the young lady on kids club is just something special, she smiles and smiles some more the kids adore her and her fun activities, she always goes the extra mile to keep the kids entertained day and night. Klaudia full of energy and enthusiasm ALL the time! Shes crazy energetic and always does has a smile on her face. Andrei what a breath of fresh air a man who truly loves his job and is eager to please a fantastic people person and again Smiley cheeky chap. Our biggest con the food... We are not fussy eaters and always happy to give any food a try but wow the salt. It's all very very salty and was warm at best the queue for breakfast was ridiculous we understand given covid that people cant be placed near eachother, but even when being asked to book a table we had to wait 45min because they wouldnt enforce table bookings and so most didnt bother. Bar snacks pahaa!!! Ok so bar snacks consist of biscuit or cake.... no sandwich or crisp or even chips ... just plain Madeira or biscuits... Coffee is good and soft drinks are good. Front of house day reception staff arent great and often come across rude and abrasive but night gentleman was sweet and helpful. Only by being here for a fortnight did we discover what was included and what wasnt so a nice list would be good the cocktails on all inclusive are tasty but we did not know we were allowed them until one week in. Toilet area near pool often floods out and the drainage could do with being better as it does flood and gets very wet under foot I'll add this is due to wet guests not the actual toilet water but still gets kind of slippy and gross which only good drainage could tackle and solve. Due to covid coffee making facilities have been removed from rooms but are available on request. Also the free shuttle bus is not running again due to covid.
