Hotel San Giorgio  

Loading

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.

A friendly, family run hotel - great value for money

We have just returned from a week in Skala, bed and breakfast at San Giorgio. I would highly recommend this property - a friendly, family-run hotel which has great facilities and offers excellent value for money. Yes its outside of the main village centre but the free shuttle bus was very handy and we never had a problem getting seats at the times we wanted. We normally make a point of trying different places and eating out every night but the standard of the hotel restaurant and evening entertainment at the pool-side bar was so good here that we stayed in for 4 of our 7 nights. I would also echo previous comments about the Thomson reps Dave and Vicky who were both so friendly and helpful. Well done to Dave, Vicky and all the staff at the hotel for making this a such a warm and welcoming holiday destination.More

great hotel long walk

This hotel is a very nice clean hotel the bar is great snack bar very nice and resturant is very nice well worth a few visits during your stay. the swimming pools are lovely and suite all needs plenty of sun beds (just dont understand why they serve you in glasses at the bar to take to the pool side this is slightly silly smashed glass and bare feet). the rooms are lovely very clean and modern for Greece standards Air conditioning for free is worth it saves abou £50 per week. Wifi is provided but it is not the best to many people trying to use it. the staff at the complex are all very friendly and helpfull. The down side (not for me and my family as we enjoyed the walk once a day) the distance to skala town is about 3 to 4 km and give yourself 40 mins to walk this. the hotel do provide a bus that runs at most times but make sure you book it early in the morning not to miss out a taxi one way is only 5 euro. The big negative to our stay we were there the first 2 weeks of August and on the second Friday the hotel decided to hold a pool party for friends and guest and considering this is a family place girls dressed in the bare minimum dancing on tables and rap music with very sexually explicit words dont work well with familys. I am far from being a prude but with 2 young children this is not needed. all in all this was just a blip in a great place. skala is a wonderfull place for a holiday and well worth renting a car for a few days to see the Island.More

Ska-la la la lee! Yeah!!!

Just returned from a splendid 2 week break there with my family. Very relaxing - got through four books by the pool - and an exceptionally friendly and hospitable staff made this one of the best holidays we've had. Perfectly positioned bar between the pools for that mid-day pint of Mythos and the food served in the restaurant as good as anywhere you could eat in the town of Skala. Things to note: Skala is a good 35 minute walk away and the free bus service into town from the hotel only runs at limited times. However, taxis are only 5 Euros. The hotel itself is built into the hill so if you're near the top like we were its a 150 steep step climb back to your room if you forget the sun cream or the lilo. On the plus side its a good bit of exercise. I shy away from giving it five stars because given its location - 25 minutes from the nearest supermarket - the on site shop should be much better stocked. Very little fresh bread, no meats or cheese for sandwiches - just an assortment of big bags of crisps and not much else. Also we went with Thomsons and I have to say their day trips are a rip off. Aside from charging our 13 year old son as an adult - the Discover Kefalonia tour did not deliver what it promised. The trips to the Caves and underground lake involved an additional fee of 10 euros each; Myrtos Beach was viewable from half way up a mountain only; we were bludgeoned by the tour guide into visiting her favourite restaurant in Fiscado as she said it was cheaper than the rest - this was nonsense as we discovered walking round. She also said the trip would be like a "three day work out" it was that packed - but unless you equate going to a gym with sitting on a bus for five hours I'm not sure what she meant. Her commentary was enthusiastic but ludicrously crass and at times offensive, particularly her view of women's intellectual abilities. Example: "Women you can switch off now because I'm going to talk to the men about engines"; "Gents, while the women are looking in the clothes shops you can learn all about the war in the museum". She said we had to leave Fiscado before 2pm because that was when the Greek mainland ferry came in and "we didn't want to be there for that because it would be chaos". It was nothing of the sort. My advice - save your money and hire a car. After the crippling expense of the Discover Kefalonia trip we only had the budget for one day's car hire but its far better value and without the bigoted narration. Also we opted for the boat trip to Zakynthos from the local operator Captain Vangelis rather than the premium rate Thomsons Sun Cruise and it was much better value. Thomsons need to re-think their pricing of these excursions. The time table Anne foisted on us seemed more for her convenience to get home on time. In one village we were told we had 20 minutes to look round and "get a coffee", with fierce warnings not to go in the sea. Just about everyone turned up with towels and swimming gear - and there was collective dismay at this directive. We should have rebelled of course but being polite British holiday makers we merely grumbled under our breath. But don't let this put you off Hotel San Giorgio. Kefalonia is beuatiful, the people exceptionally friendly and if you need a relaxing break this is the perfect spot.More

The best holiday ever!

I recently stayed at San Giorgio with my best friend for a relaxing girls holiday, we booked last minute and couldn't have asked for a better holiday! Everyone at San Giorgio is so friendly and welcoming I have never come across such a wonderful group of people who are always smiling and happy to help! The rooms were extremely clean and pleasant with everything we needed and a lovely sea view on the balcony. The entertainment at the hotel was brilliant, the house singer is amazing and the quizzes and karaoke were great! The local area is beautiful and the hotel is kept so clean and tidy it's such a lovely place to be! We have decided to make this our annual trip together! I highly recommend! More

what a lucky find!

We booked this as a last minute quick getaway and were so pleased! The food was great, it actually has three pools and the staff really lovely. We were only there a week so didn't venture far but to be honest didn't need to as our seven year old daughter spent most of the week in the pool!More
