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.

Nice hotel but will stay nearer town next time

We stayed here in August/Sept last year and had a wonderful time. The hotel is lovely but the location was the one thing I would change if I go back to Skala. We had read the reviews and didn't think it would matter as we're quite fit, but it did because you have to plan everything which you don't always want to on holiday. The walk took us 40 minutes pottering in flip flops, so inevitably you need to book the minibus first thing in the morning, for your morning and evening ride downtown. Now if that doesn't bother you then I have no other faults with the hotel. Our room was lovely and the balcony was the largest we've ever had. We spentvan evening chilling and eating on it. The breakfast is standard. If you love proper Greek yoghurt then go early as the heat is so intense it soon warms it up and its just not the same. Yes they're are a lot of wasps but that's what you get in Greece in that weather! We ate at the restaurant once but found the food in town better. We hired a car and went to Fiskardo. Noe it is lovely, but be warned its a twisty journey! So if you get car sick you will definitely suffer! Skala beach is lovely and we went there most days and ate at the local beach bar. It was fab value for food. There is also a lovely bakery (Village Bakery I think) in the town so nip there for pastries to take to the beach, their croissants and pain au chocolats were huge!) All in all a lovely hotel and Skala is a nice relaxing place. We will go back but to a different hotel.More

Most relaxing holiday we've ever had!!

After we couldn't deside where to go for our holidays at the beginning of last year. We decided to give the Greek island of Kefalonia a shot....and I couldn't of wished for a more perfect location. Yeah the hotel it up on a steal hill and at the high of heat it can be unpleasant for older people however, the stunning views the hotel offers cannot be ignored!! The hotel offers three fairly sized pools and once little splash pool with a waterfall which is perfect for babies or toddlers who are wetting their feet with their parents! The pools are very clean as well as the pool sides! Whilst relaxing one day the men were out fixing one of the lights which had gone off in the pool which was brilliant. We also had a problem with our door (turned out it wasn't a problem and I had pushed it in so the latch wouldn't unlocks, oops!) but the gentleman came very quickly and wasn't annoyed or angry like most staff would be when I realised it was my fault. The cleaning staff are very polite and go out of their way to speak to you. The lovely lady who cleaned our room even asked us permission if it was alright to clean. Bar, restaurant, reception and snack bar staff alike were all friendly and welcoming, they would do anything for you nothing was a bother. There is a shuttle bus into Skala on a night time if you do not want to walk. I advise that you book around 7:30-8:30 in the morning then you are not worrying about your transport for the night. Then we got a taxi for 5€ back to the hotel on a night or once we walked. It was a long way in the dark as there isn't much light however, if we hadn't of walked we would never of bought our underwater camera, which if you are going down to the cove is a must!!! Also a bit of advise take a bag of cheese and onion crisps, crunch them up and feed them to the fish at the cove, they love this!! They also love mushroom pizza! I kid you not!! We hired a car for three days, much more comfortable for getting round the island, however this year we are not going to have the same class of car, it was a class A and well let's just say a tin can is built better, but it was lots of fun and we had great laughs driving it. Dave our rep couldn't be more helpful, he booked our day cruise to Zante and even gave our son an inflatable to keep him safe when stopping for a swim stop, where the water was rather deep! He advised us at what time of the day to see the turtles in the capital, prices, best places to go at what time. He even weighted our cases for use before we left. As with ever hotel the beds are hard but the room was big enough for us for 20€ you can hire a safe and on day 5 of our holiday we actually found the fridge!!!! Breakfast is a little hit and miss but if you are like me and don't eat many different foods the Greek yoghurt with honey and fruit is perfect! The food in the resturant is top notch and very enjoyable. We hope to be returning to San Giorgio in August of this year, Yey!!! Cannot wait!More

Good but think twice.

Apon arriving at the hotel we was moved to out rooms which were seperate from main complex and involved a 5-10 mins walk from check-in, although this isn't substantial this did mean a walk to breakfast and was too far to pick up the Wi-Fi signal. The 35 minute walk into Skala was too far, and although taxi's weren't expensive if you plan on staying out past 1am you'll need to walk. The food and actual quality of accomodation was excellent. The only reason I wouldn't book again is because it was too far from Skala, which they can't really do anything about.More

Beautiful Holiday, great hotel, would go back.

We stayed at this hotel in June 2014 and we loved Kefalonia and San Giorgio completely. The resort is abit of a way from the airport and it felt like forever that we were travelling but there were some beautiful sites on the way. Upon entering Skala, it appeared that a lot of the hotels were situated very close to one another, along the beach front, however ours wasn't. I started to worry slightly as we left the "main strip" and it seemed a bit of a way out of the town, however the hotel is absolutely lovely and there weren't any like this in the "town centre". We did the walk into town on the first day at a very leisurely pace and it took us an hour. It is a nice walk but it does sometimes feel like forever, especially in flip flops! There is however a mini bus very often which you have to book at reception in the morning but it saves a lot of time. With regards to the rooms and "cardiac hill", it is a killer in the heat, especially as we were right at the top. I was completely out of breath at the top but Im not the fittest of people. Plus it was WELL worth it for the view. Our room was quite large, kitchen including fridge, cooking hobs, utensils, pots and pans and a sink. We cooked in a couple of nights during our stay. The balcony was lovely though, nice table and chairs will a beautiful view, I just wanted to sit there all day. We only ate lunches at the hotel so not sure what the restaurant is like but the snack bar Is great, we had a chicken kebab thing which was delicious. We spent most of our time at the larger pool at the back as it seemed more relaxed and empty. I think everyone wanted the wifi at the front pool! Right near the hotel are some beautiful coves where you can swim and see lots of fish. Im biased though as this is where my partner asked me to marry him and it was perfect. I would DEFINATELY recommend going to the waffle/pancake house in the main town, it is to the left of the main restaurant strip but its delicious and the woman is so friendly. All in all this was a great hotel, probably one of the best in the town and I would definitely go again when we have abit more money.More
