Hotel Pelagos Bay  


This little hotel comes with a sea-facing pool and a secluded cove just across the way.

Billy, Barbara and the family’s Labrador, Disney, make welcoming hosts at this little hotel. Sea-facing rooms look onto the pool, where the bar* serves up meals and snacks and – at night – is a great place for cocktails.

One of the reasons guests keep coming back is the cove just across the road. It’s a little rocky number, secluded and quiet, where you can leave your towel while you pop back to the hotel for lunch.

The Personal Touch

I would like to thank Barbara, Billy,Yannis and Anastasia for all going that extra mile and making my proposal to my now fiancé so special ... A HUGE thank you to you all :-) To all the staff who cleaned, swept, made beds and assured my holiday was a memorable one... A HUGE thank you. Having stayed on many Greek Islands if anybody asks me my favourite I always say Kefalonia, a jewel in the Ionian sea. And Pelagos Bay ... There are bigger hotels and there are shiny chromed modern hotels on the Island but for me It doesn't get better than Pelagos for hospitality, friendliness and that personal touch .... missing from so many hotels :-)More

Hospitality at its finest!

Stayed at the Pelagos Bay Hotel for a week in July based on the good reviews. I can only add to the praise of this amazing hotel. Barbara and Billy have a great team of staff and family, who always look like they are truly enjoying themselves as much as their guests. The rooms all have a beautiful sea view and balcony,and are very clean. We stayed on a B&B basis.A continental style breakfast was included but a reasonable priced cooked breakfast was also available. The location is ideal, opposite a lovely cove. The hotel owns a couple of kayaks so we hired one for a day and happily kayaked for hours around the coast. There are a couple of good restaurants just along from the hotel, but the best night by far was the barbecue & Greek dancing night at the Hotel. A week was just not long enough & we will definitely be back.More

After 10 years!!!!

It has been ten years since hubby and I have had a holiday and we wanted to go back to Kefalonia, Pelagos Bay.. Our fourth time back to Kefalonia, third time back to lovely Barbara and Billy, even after all that time they remembered us, even their family members. What can we say about this beautiful place, rooms are lovely, clean, air conditioned, bar meals are fresh and lovely,bar staff Yannis, is nuts but brilliant and will always bring a smile to your face. Their motto "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" how true that is, how many places can you go to ten years later and still be remembered??? this place has been very designed so that every room over looks the sea and to top it off they have a gorgeous secluded beach opposite. Skala town centre is a walk away but what a lovely walk right alongside the stunning turquoise waters of the sea. As for their Greek Nights?, not to be missed!!! a good laugh, Georgia gets the girls dancing, then Yannis lines the lads up for the same but alot's a really good night and the food is great. I would defy anyone to go there and not return, everyone always goes back, Billy and Barbara and their lovely staff treat everyone well, nothing is too much for any of them. So, to Barbara, Billy, Yannis, Katerina, Big Yannis, Georgia, Katerina (billy's sister), Anastasia, Blid, a huge thank you for making our return such a memorable one! will be back as soon as possible.YAMMAS!!!!!

Our second home and family

We have stayed at Pelagos Bay in Skala for 6 years now initially after a last minute booking due to the crash of EXCEL some years ago now. From the minute we got off the coach we were welcome into their home and family by both Billy and Barbara. Their openness and friendliness cannot be faulted. The food and rooms are by no means basic as described by a previous reviewer-Billys mum cooks good traditional Greek food as well as a range of english food. The club sandwich is a must. Our family and friends have been out with us over the years and have been welcomed with open arms by Billy Barbara and their family. We know of no rule book as referred to by a previous reviewer. This is a hotel and family that is so loved and respected that people return year after year sometimes more than once a year and that is why it can be classed as one big extended family. You meet up with friends old and new year after year and everyone is made welcome. If you prefer to sit in your own little bubble, not mix with people, don't join in with the fun and banter in and around the pool and RELAX then maybe this isn't the place for you.More


Great holiday

Stayed at this hotel the last week in May, been to kefalonia a number of times and can honestly say this is the best find ever, came with husband, our ten year old son and my mum and we all really enjoyed it. Barbara,Billy and, Katarina are excellent hosts are can't do enough for you as well as all the staff there who we had some great nights with!! Hotel facilities are excellent and very clean. We met some great friends while we were there and have since met up and we are all planning to come back again.Definetely recommend this hotel to any one looking at holidaying in Kefalonia.More
