This family-run hotel has 2 big pools. It’s just a short hop from Skala’s beach, shops and tavernas.
People love these pastel-coloured studios and apartments, and surrounding olive trees. They also love the 2 big pools, and the restaurant for breakfast and evening meals. The owners of this hotel reckon over 60% of their guests are repeat visitors.
You’re far enough out of town to relax, but close enough that you can drive to town in less than 10 minutes. The hotel runs a free shuttle bus that’ll get you there. Plus, there’s a shingle cove 5 minutes away.
This place serves up buffet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You'll find a choice of hot and cold dishes, as well as desserts, ice-cream and fresh fruit. You can get get branded ice-cream for a little extra. Afternoon tea is served at the poolside from 4pm to 5pm, this includes cakes and sweets.
Visited the San Georgio in September for a week with my husband, my son, his wife and two year old daughter. Loved everything about the hotel, real value for money. The pool areas are brilliant. Only small niggle was the breakfast. We will be returning next year to sample the all inclusive.More

First time in Kefalonia..
The San Giorgio hotel was a very relaxing quiet hotel. The young girl behing reception was very helpful and friendly, the older lady wasnt so helpful and quite rude at times not only to us but to other guests also. We had one of the highest rooms in which the view was breath taking it was beautiful. We would wake up to a beautiful sunrise with the views of Zante and Athens accross the sea. The hotel has three swimming pools which we swam in all three and they were lovely all three were kept clean, and there was plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The poolside snack bar was great, good prices tasty food and lots to choose from,the lady who works in there is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and spacious, our linen and towels were changed twice in the week we stayed there The bed wasnt the comfiest and we only got one pillow each which was a little disappointing. The balcony was a nice size and we sat out there most evenings after returning from town. The hotel put on some kind of entertainment most nights. We ate in the resturant upstairs which was lovely, the service was great and the food very good value for money. Breakfast wasnt nothing fancy and very basic but if you are happy with a bowl of cereal or toast then you will have no complaints. We found most of the resturants offered full english breakfasts for around 5-7 euros if thats what you fancy. The hotel is about a fourty minute walk into town we didnt attempt this as it was too much in the scortching sun and so used the hotel's bus a couple of times (best to book early as it gets full up fast), failing that we got a taxi which cost five euros each way. All of the resturants in town are great value for money, we didnt have one bad meal out of all the places we ate. We went on a zante cruise which was brilliant.Last but not least we would like to say a big big thankyou to Tony the man who drives you up to your rooms.I would recommend the San Giorgio to people who are happy to go all inclusive but personally i would stay at a different hotel next time.

Fantastic second visit to San georgio.after a mix up with room which was sorted straight away.nothing wrong with breakfast plenty to set you up for the day all cutlery spotless and plenty there.staff always said good morning to us.snacks at lunch time very good quality as was evening food.great swimming pools and always sun beds available.rooms very clean and well looked after by maid who said good morning andalwayscalled our daughter by name and would come back later if we were in room.hotel is a little way out of town but you do need a car to see this island or you are missing out on lovely places to visit and to eat.pity about all inclusive as there are so many great places to eat and drink but it looks like it may still be a good price with free child place and hopefully it won't ruin this lovely hotel.we had a great holiday and met some lovely people.More

A very good 3 star hotel
Excellent value hotel but breakfast is very poor quality with rather a depressing atmosphere in the dining room which doesn't make for a great start to the day ! Hence we didn't try the evening menu having been put off by the breakfast . In addition the hygiene was somewhat lacking , the cutlery and crockery was often filthy (when there was any of course) . We didn't find the staff particularly friendly , except for the lovely young dark haired lady on reception . The breakfast staff never acknowledged guests and were a bit miserable . I didn't get the feeling that this is a family run hotel but I believe it is .
Our room was very nice with a great view but the maids could be a bit fearsome banging on the door at 9 am and insisting they be allowed in within 10 minutes , I have never experienced this before . Skala is absolutely delightful and the quality of the tavernas excellent . The beach was excellent and we often hired sun beds from the Metaxa bar and the delightful lady there .
All in all a great holiday , I would return to Skala but only to the San Giorgio if I got a very good deal and definately not if it becomes all inclusive .

Just returned after a weeks break and a mixed bag of weather. Like previous reviews the hotel is set quite steeply into the hillside and you will need to request a lower floor room if you have any walking issues. We requested a lower room and it was granted, having taken note of previous reviews and being the wrong side of 60 we thought we might be safer to, having said that we managed a walk into Skala and then walked back after lunch it took 35 minutes each way.
The drive from the airport in the transfer coach took just over the hour and we were dealt with quickly at reception.
We stayed B&B and the room was a good size with a decent bathroom, large double bed and tub seat with tv. We took our own kettle for a drink in the room. It was 12 euros for the safe and courtesy bus which you have to book the same day that you want it at reception. We booked it for the same time each evening and never had a problem. Skala has enough restaurants for a different one each night for at least a couple of weeks and enough bars for a change of scenery. Taxi home never a problem and only 5 euros.
Hotel has three pools with plenty of sunbathing space. Nothing much in vicinity of hotel.
Lunchtime food no problem all made to order and fresh and a busy bar and small shop on site.
A big thing seems to be made about the breakfasts on this site but whilst it is far from brilliant it was just a typical Greek style continental affair in a restaurant with amazing all round views. It certainly contained enough for us, the quality could be improved but it is not a 5* hotel where it would have been an issue but I have had similar fayre in 4* before. All in all an excellent break pity abouy all the rain at the start of the holiday lol.More
