Hotel San Giorgio  

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.

Returned yesterday from a 10 day visit. We stayed self catering and apart from the holiday being a little too expensive I couldn't fault anything. Smart reception area on arrival and smooth check in. All the staff here are helpful and friendly, 3 lovely pools to choose from and the pool/snack bar has nice shady areas to have lunch by. Amazing views from the room balcony food in restaurants was also very tasty, however if the hotel goes all inclusive next year I would not return as the town of skala has so many great restaurants and bars and they would suffer if guess never left the hotel.More

Ideal Location, unspoilt area

I stayed at this hotel on a self catering basis with a friend and her nine year old daughter. We stayed in apartment 123 which is just above the bar and pool and whilst initially worried we might miss out on the views provided by the higher rooms and potential noise, we were incredibly grateful to find that none of those concerns were warranted. We had only one small slight of stairs to contend with, the entertainment wasn't every night and even then switched off at midnight and we had a huge patio area that we could still see the sea from. The apartment was huge and although dated, was clean and tidy and provided everything we needed to accommodate the three of us. The staff, from the cleaners, to the bar staff and particularly the receptionists (a special thank you to Marika) were exceptional. The bus service to Skala was five minutes, frequent and free. The food in the restaurant was fantastic on the first night but disappointing on the last night but still good value. I am not sure they are making the right decision to go All Inclusive at this hotel next year as going out to eat is one of the big pleasures of a holiday like this. The tavernas in Skala were all incredible - everyone we met on the Island couldn't do enough for you. Our reps were also fantastic - Josh and Jenny who were practically resident at the San Georgio and always on hand to help (Thomson). I would highly recommend this hotel and Skala (with it's beautiful cove beaches just a short walk down).More

Lovely Holiday

We recently stayed at San Giorgio and had an excellent week. The hotel was very good with a lovely reception area and restaurant where the food was excellent. Our room was up the hill which was quite a climb but transport was readily available to take us up if required, this was offset by wonderful views. The pool areas were very good and like the rest of the hotel very clean and had a really good snack bar. The staff were very helpful, particulary Marika in reception where nothing was too much trouble. It was a 40 minute walk to the centre of Skala but the hotel provided free transport regularly. No complaints at all with this hotel although mosquitoes were quite rough at times (not in room). We took a really good boat trip to Fiskardo with a local company Captain Vangelis which is recommended. Tavernas etc. in Skala very good with plenty of choice. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.More

Skala, Kefalonia, land of gods

23 years ago my wife and I stayed in the village of Skala on the southern tip of Kefalonia. The village is very picturesque and has not lost its charm today. The location of San Georgio and many other hotels is along the the 5km long beach front which was once a dusty road leading to Poros. In the last decade there has been lots of developement behind the beach front but this has not really spoilt Skala's quaintness and the village itself has been carefully and thoughtfully developed to maintain this. We spent a week here again in June 2015 and the hotel was lovely with plenty of space to relax wirh two separate pool areas. The restaurant again very spacious on the first floor with balcony overlooking the sea, serving breakfast from 8am and dinner from 6pm. The hotel also has two bars which are open all day, one in the main building reception area, and the other situated between the pools. food is also available from the pool cafe and shop. The rooms are clean and comfortable and equipt with bath, shower, tv, and balcony, not forgetting the all importand Aircon. The hotel is built on the side of a hill which means that the walkways can be very steep, there are lots of steps. However the hotel provides transportation to the rooms up on the hill for those who find the climb too much. All it takes is a visit or call to reception. There is also a mini bus provided to make the 3km journey to Skala village. The service runs every half hour or so from 0800 to 2100. We enjoyed our stay here, The hotel staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. The one thing that we found disappointing was the breakfast, which was listed as continental, fair enough but it was sadly poor in selection and quality, and rather let the place down a little. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night, and it was very nice, but it was always our intention to eat in the village thereafter, so i cannot comment on consistancy. Overall we liked the hotel compex, and if you have young children they will enjoy the pool areas and gardens. would we come here again? To Skala yes!, to this hotel? Quite possible.More

Fantastic holiday

It was my first visit to San Giorgio, and wouldn't be my last, had a great time. The hotel was always spotless and the staff very friendly and helpful, we had breakfast in the hotel every morning which was basic but enough to set up the day, we ate once in the hotel restaurant and couldn't fault the food or service. The hotel had recently had renovations to improve the hotel, it was very modern and impressive. The hotel was a 45 minute walk away from the city centre but was a nice walk in the morning when it wasn't too hot, they do provide a bus service but it's set times. Overall had a great stay at San Giorgio and hopefully return in the future.More
