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.

HI, pictures of this hotel do not do it justice. it is a lovely clean hotel, family run, excellent facilities. Everyone is friendly and help is always at hand. The owners sit alongside the guests in the evening and it has a really relaxed atmosphere. The apartments are spacious and clean. the apartment are spread out in the complex and there are some that are very high in the grounds (ours was 121 steps, followed by slopes to the room) but the views were amazing. If you are allocated one of the high rooms, there is always a vehicle at reception to take you to your room or collect you so you dont have to walk if you dont want to. there is also a hotel minibus which goes into Skala town every half an hr which is free of charge. The food in the restaurant i cannot fault, always fresh and always a variety of dishes.There is only one thing that i was disappointed at with this hotel and that is that after 11pm all inclusive stopped and you had to pay for any more drinks you required. Also bottled water is not available unless you purchased it.But apart from that small thing, the hotel and destination i would recommend to anyone.More
Very nice week away
Just returned from a great week at the San Giorgio,and I a very nice week it was.Value for money would warrant 5 *, but by giving it that rating would lead people to think it was slightly better than it is.What you get is 2 nice pools ,a large comfortable room with excellent (free) air con.Stunning views ,a short walk to a couple tiny coves with beautiful clear sea. The drinks on A/I are ok (not branded) but are quite drinkable (incl the wines that comparable to a £4 tesco wine).If plastic cups annoy you ,bring your own. The food IS good ,tasty and mainly of a Greek nature, but very samey ,I would say good for a week but any longer you will start getting bored of it ( if you love Greek salad ,feta tomatoes etc you will be fine ,it's on every day and very good) Nice walk to town or a free bus , it's very pretty with some lovely shops and cafes Staff are all very friendly (you only get back ,what you put in) ! All in a all for £500 ish for a week ,brilliant value looking at next years price ,it needs to drop a fair bit to be brilliant value next year , but if the price drops a bit ,I would certainly return.More
The San Giorgio
After reading a lot of negative reviews I was a little concerned about coming here, but that was completely unnecessary as all in all we had a lovely holiday. Kefalonia is a beautiful island and we did a couple of excursions and visited some lovely quaint villages. The room we had was at the top of the stairs which is pretty hard going , especially in the heat but there is always the car to take you to your room.the view from the balcony is absolutely amazing, and the room itself is very spacious with plenty of space for your clothes. The staff at the hotel were mainly very friendly and helpful especially at reception. On the negative side, the fact that they didn't provide pool towels was a problem as they dont provide a laundry service either, so had to use the same towels for the duration! Also they don't provide shower gel which I have never heard of in other hotels but there is a a small supermarket so we bought some there so only really a minor niggle. The biggest problem is of course the food! Breakfast is good they have a wonderful creamy greek yogurt, lunch...very poor, we always ate out, and dinner there was a few decent nights during our stay but mainly no choice so we stuck to the greek salad. I've noticed a lot of people complaining about the plastic cups but we never found it a problem as they have proper wine glasses in the restaurant and a very nice wine as well. I think if the hotel sorted the food issue out we would return as there are lots of plus points and we also met some good friends during our stay.More
May25th- June 8th 2017.. enjoyable holiday
We had a taxi from the airport which took around 45 mins instead of the 90 minutes thomson record it would take on there coach. Check in was quick...safe 24 euros for 2 weeks. We had our bags taken to our room and one of the staff showed us where to go. I had requested a night room with balcony with sea view and this is what I got. Room 319. Not too high..I'd say middle of the high steps. The room was spacious with lots of coat hangers and hanging space . There was also about 5 small draws. They re was a small fridge with 2 small water in. ( there was 3 of us in our party). We had a chair bed for our daughter the first night..she found this uncomfortable so I asked at reception for them to change it. They did to a camp bed which was better. We also asked for more pillows which we got.we arrived at 2.30pm so had to make do with snack bar. All that was there wAs omelette sandwiches and fries. You have to use paper bags to put them in. Drinks are plastic too except restaurant so I'd advise you to go to wilkinson s and get some of there plastic garden ware. They do sell sturdier plastic cups in supermarkets in Skala. Food was hit and miss. One day there was nothing at all for my daughter ( not even fries) so I asked if there was anything they could provide. The staff was very helpful and made her an omelette. I'd say out of the 14 days there was around 4 nights where there was nothing to our taste. . And if there was something that looked good there was nothing to go with it ( like veg). Desserts was quite good. Skala was a 45 minute walk or free bus from 10am till 9pm. It's best to book both ways at reception as it does get full. We tried waves bar just as you get into Skala. It's owned by family of San Giorgio so you can use free bus and it will pick you up until12midnight. Milkshakes was lovely but not cheap 5euro. View of the sea was gorgeous from this bar. There was plenty of sun beds and a quiet pool ( no kids allowed.) there are a lot of signs around the complex with no this n that. Also tip boxes every where you look. Main reception there's an area where you can swap old books and magazines. Karaoke was a good laugh on Saturday night. We wouldn t return as we like to explore.. we got it for the right price so can t moan . The best thing about the hotel are the view There isn't t a kids selection of food at the hotel..they re isn't a lot for kids over 7 to do eitherMore
Great hotel & lovely staff.
I spent a week here with my partner in early June. I was unsure of a couple of things after reading the reviews, but we can honestly say neither of us have a single complaint following our stay. So a few things I read... Plastic cups - really not that small, and anyway, I'd rather have more drinks and them be cold, a large drink would go warm in that heat! Food - Yes, it would be repetitive if you're picky, my partner didn't eat the same things at all, I am more fussy so maybe less choice for me, but that's my fault, not the hotel. All inclusive - I've been to many hotels all inclusive and it's usually only local brands that are included, so we expected that. Hilly - if you're going to book to stay on a greek island,this is what you must expect! They offer the car service, so shouldn't been an issue, we didn't use it, but lots did and said it was fine. Rooms - clean, beds are firm, but we like that, they won't ever get a bed to suit everyone, we all like different things! We had room 264 as the Hotel kindly accomodated my request for a high room, and the views are stunning, worth the 121 steps! Pools - were great, we only stayed by the quiet pool, no children, and so peaceful. The pool isn't too cold either. Do take your own pool towel as these are not included Sunbeds - we never had an issue getting one, even late in the day after a beach morning. Free shuttle - great service, definitely recommend using it on the way back from the beach as there's not much shade on the walk, so after a long day, in the afternoon heat, it can be a bit much. Coves - the little coves down by the beach are great for snorkelling! Lots of fish to see. All the water, here and at the main beach, is beautifully clear and lovely to swim in. The staff are all amazing, such friendly, helpful, and welcoming people. Overall a fanstastic week! We don't return to resorts as there's so much of the world to see, but if we did, we would definitely come back here!More
