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.
Our second visit here , we had asked for a room at the top and that's what we got, really stunning views and as we had hired a car getting to the top was ok. Room was spotless as usual. Now our only gripe this time was the breakfast, we actually only went for breakfast twice then chose to eat out each morning. It is quite poor, juice and coffee are nice but it is such a bun fight to get anything that we just decided not to bother. We are going back to Kefalonia next year but this time will stay up in Aghia Efemia as we do prefer the north of the island and it is quite a drive from SkalaMore

Another great holiday!
This was our 4th time at San Georgio enjoyed every minute we were in room 250 which was as high as you could get but fantastic views.Room very clean towels and sheets changed every other day pool area and bar excellent .Anna who runs the snack bar very friendly and food very good.Our first week we had some rain on most days but if you were up early and by the pool around 8 30 by the time the rain came you had a good 5 hours sun! this became a good talking point with a couple we used to lie next to round the pool Julie and Steve from Newcastle it would of been nice to get to know them better ! Makis the bar man always knew our drinks order a nice friendly touch .My only negative this year were the wasps at breakfast very annoying but all in another fabulous stay at San Georgio.More
Fabulous views and an ideal place to chill
This was a week away as a couple to chill and enjoy a bit of Greek food and hospitality and the San Giorgio filled the bill perfectly.The staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help. The rooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were a little basic but they were fresh and in good quantity, not everyone wants huge full English ( i don't have them at home and don't want them on holiday). There were three beautiful pools with vast quantities of sunbeds and lovely views. There were oranges. figs and pomegranates you could eat from the tree and beautiful flowers and trees in the immaculately kept gardens. The snacks at lunch time were reasonably priced and very tasty and though we were not on bed and breakfast the meals we had in the restaurant were fine.
It is the views from the balcony that will stick in my memory for a long time. The views of the mountains and the sea with mainland Greece in the far distance were breathtaking and to sit there with a metaxa and a bottle of wine was a privilege. and worth the money. If you want all night discos and partying this is not the place for you but if you like to see the grandeur of nature at first hand look no further.
The hills to the rooms were steep but there was a man whose sole job was to take people up there and my wife ,she of the dodgy knee, never had to wait for more than a couple of minutes.
It was a FLAT and pleasant walk into Skala along the coast which was a wide and quite well lit path with coffee and bar stops on the way. We liked to walk in and get a taxi back and it was worth 5 euro for a ride in a Mercedes. The shuttle bus was regular and free and we always found there was room when we wanted it. If lots of people wanted the final 9pm bus he ran twice.
Scala has many restaurants much of a muchness in what they offer and very reasonably priced but we would certainly recommend the food and the views from Old Times.
The trip we took was to Ithaca an even more beautiful and unspoilt island with a view round every corner and we were given a poem about finding your own Ithaca which I will treasure.
Our rep was very helpful, reliable and often just came and had a chat with us to ask if everything was fine.She even gave us her mobile to phone home on the wet night we arrived and we could not get a signal.
As for the weather , apart from the first day when it persisted down, it was absolutely gorgeous, blue skies and sunshine wall to wall;
We were the last guests of the season and the sun was shining brightly as we left, an open invitation to return.More

Not what it says on the tin ...
... If your not a regular don't bother ... Hotel basic ... Breakfast a sham ... Didn't eat here in the evening as guests there gave it a poor rating ... Weather lovely in September ... Lovely walk into Skala about 45 minutes ... Wouldn't want to do it late at night, a taxi just five euros and u usually find someone to share with. Manager miserable, staff well the only good one is Dessi on reception, couldn't do enough for you. Third time to Skala, first and last to San Giorgiou. Livadaki Village much nicer.
Wifi slow but we r in Greece after all, we had room 304 and you could pick up WiFi on the balcony.
Views stunning, pools lovely ... Bar too small ... Breakfast area cramped ... Reception dim ... Entertainment poor ... No daytime activities ... Games room pay to use ... Free wifi ... Idiot English reserve sunbeds at silly o'clock ... Loads to go around ... Rooms basic and smelly ... Beds are like rock ... Sorry but the truth hurts ... Yes I would go,back to Skala but not Here!More
