We have been going to Kefalonia for many years and have now discovered a jewel of a hotel. Having read some of the reviews I was a bit sceptical about it but went with an open mind and I’m glad I did. The location of the hotel couldn’t be better with views that are spectacular. The grounds and gardens are immaculate and the rooms clean and comfortable, the staff are all very friendly and relaxed with nothing too much trouble. Some have mentioned the drinks being expensive but although a bit more than they are in town they are not extortionate, breakfast is a mix of hot and cold with lots of cakes and sweet treats available and fresh breads all baked at the hotel with your normal continental selection also.
Thank Stevie-the-Mod1

We spent 2 nights in the Emelisse hotel during our honeymoon trip. We had a wonderful time at the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and nice. Breakfast was very good and the view is breathtaking. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Took the chance of an early October week in Kefalonia. Weather all week great, totally different to the 10 day forecast. Arrived in temperature of 28c. The hotel was an hours drive from the airport (Argostoli), very steep and twisty roads, watch out for the goats! Arrived at hotel and golf buggies were sent to pick up both us and our luggage. Received a warm welcome at reception and were given cold flannels and glasses of water which were very welcome in view of the temperature. We were given a Junior Suite very close to reception. Room spotlessly clean but seemed quite sparse. Balcony had good views. Bed very comfortable. We had to ask for a kettle etc. and these arrived within minutes. Breakfasts very good with a large choice. Staff at breakfast were wonderful. A little disappointed with main restaurant, maybe because it was coming to the end of the season. Had to wait ages for food. We had elected to take half-board which meant we could have lunch or dinner. If we went again we would choose B & B as the restaurants in Fiskardo are great, a courtesy bus runs from the hotel and it is only a 20 minute walk away. Many beautiful bays within 45 minute drive. This is a great hotel if you are into fitness, great walks, swimming, lots of pools on site, although not heated! Tennis, spa etc.

The first impression at the reception was unfortunately not a great one as everything was just far to much trouble. I think the staff were ready for the end off the season and being friendly,helpful and communicating all seemed far to much effort. I didn't feel welcome or valued as a guest just an inconvenience
The Hotel has a great gym ,tennis court and squash court . The gym was free which was great and expected but I wanted just to play a little squash on my own as I had nobody to play with and was told I would have to pay 20euros an hour..so very disappointed that it wasn't free especially as it's only the lighting that needs to be on. My local gym only charges £4.50 for a court..
The attendants at the pool areas were few and no parasols were out allot had been packed away I'm sure in preparation for the closure for winter.
The breakfast was good and being able to look out over the sea was excellent. We did although want an early breakfast on departure and was told 8am was the earliest again so unhelpful especially when in the morning we found a large group on a fitness break had already been served at 7.30 .
We asked for our bags to be collected and taken to our car . Which took far to long to organise and felt like we were an inconvenience..
I'm sure with the many rave reviews they have we just received end off season tiered service but it's still not acceptable as we paid a reasonable amount for good service ..
The Hotel position was good and very quiet and the pools were good and the rooms were fine although the general dark reds and greens were a little dated.
The small beach by the Hotel which we stumbled across was beautiful and excellent ...

Just checked out from a week at the Emelisse Hotel. It was an amazing place. Hotel gorgeous, views breathtaking and everything spotlessly clean. Best of all was the friendly and polite staff. Hope to make it back again soon

We stayed in Fiscardo and hired a boat to take us around. The water was calm and so it was an easy trip with our (then) young children. Foki beach is good. Assos and Myrtos are further away but you may be able to reach them... More

we hired a car as it is so easy to navigate your way around the island. You will also enjoy exploring the little villages along the way. BE sure to get your International DL as it is now a requirement in Greece. Enjoy.
