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.

When we arrived at the san Giorgio and the first thing we noticed was the reception. Area had been increased greatly,. So had the dinning area.The lovely restaurant had been changed into a large canteen .This we wey told was because it is changing to all Inclusive. What a shame ,its a great hotel helpful staff and a wonderful pool area .We have been 3 times now ,but would not go back if it did change to A C many people said the same thing. Why change something if it's not More
A good walk from Skala.Make sure that you book the mini bus in plenty of time.Taxi's are 5 euro's from Skala but there were five of us so we needed two taxi's as the drivers will not take more than four passengers. Safe deposit box 12 euros per week. Towels changed every 3 days but our cleaner changed them daily if we left them in the bathroom. We were pleased that we took a kettle with us - no tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel breakfasts were the usual toast, cereals, etc, with alternate mornings of scrambled egg, baked beans and sausage and hot boiled eggs. On our first morning at the hotel we were disappointed to see beach towels on the sunbeds, but the pools round the side of the hotel were quieter and more pleasant.The hotel staff generally were lovely. Our first week was relatively quiet, but unfortunately in the second week peace was destroyed by new occupants of the room above who scraped their furniture across the floor every morning and every night, and spent a lot of time running up and down their room.We requested an upstairs room to avoid this at the time of booking but it wasn't guaranteed - disappointing but nothing we could do about it. Overall though, a very nice hotel.More

amazing holiday skala
san Giorgio was a fabulous hotel lovely staff, room perfect with gorgeous view our first visit to this hotel would readily return but horrified to find out that next year it is going all inclusive, we like to try different local tavernas and others we spoke to who have been before feel the same. it will not help restaurants in skala who get a lot of trade from this hotelMore

This was my forth time back at San Giorgio and I can't believe that it will now be my last!!. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed with the attitude and the general atmosphere within the hotel. The issue that my husband and I had was that despite previous years where staff were seen to be very friendly and caring, they now seemed to be cold and not very friendly especially the receptionists who barely smiled or said hello to us when we asked for their assistance. The only one who was very friendly was the cleaner who made sure that our room was always kept immaculate (Thank you). Lastly, It's sad to hear that San Giorgio will now only cater for All Inclusive customers which is much to the disappointment from their loyal customers who like us will no longer be returning to the hotel.

A lovely first holiday I wont forget!
My boyfriend and I chose Kefalonia to be our first holiday together. The place itself is beautiful. We first were booked into a room that had no balcony when initially we were supposed to get one. We asked the receptionist if we could get a room with a balcony instead, just so we had more privacy and we got moved to 265 the next day. This was one of the rooms highest up the hill, walking up those steps in the day time (around lunch time) isn't wise in the scorching heat of 37 degrees. However you can request a lift from reception that the staff will so kindly do for you. Breakfast is the only reason I haven't rated a 5. It was so poor, the cereal was stale, the jam was quite tasteless and the scrambled eggs were floating in oil! We actually looked forward too the beans and sausages every other day because that was the only thing we could eat! Wifi wasn't great either, depending on where you are, better when your in reception but we still managed to get signal sitting on our balcony. We ate at the hotel restaurant some times, we became quite friendly with the people that worked there. I can't explain enough how kind they are. The only person that felt a little bit cold was one of the receptionists, the other was lovely.The hotel reps are great, they advised us on what trip would suit us best and we would definitely recommend going on one where you see most of the island, some of the views are just breathtaking. Skala is stunning, with so many restaurants that just make the most amazing dishes. Our #1 recommendation would be The Old Village (wait for the little surprise after dinner too). Overall a beautiful hotel, with lovely pools, great staff and happy atmosphere.More
