We stayed here in September 2014. Previous comments seemed generally fair, if a little over enthusiastic, so we will just add some additional points.
The site is on a hillside so there are two stair flights from the site entrance to the pool/bar area and a third flight if you have one of the top-floor studios. People with mobility issues may find this a problem.
A previous comment about pool cleanliness seems to have been addressed -we witnessed the pool attendant doing a very thorough cleaning job. Parents with small children should be aware that there was no kiddies pool and the main pool can be quite deep away from the sides.
We had some issues with the studio toilet area. The shower head would not reach it's little peg so you ended up with a hand-held shower - not good enough! The shower curtain had mould all around it's hem, the toilet needed a thorough bleaching and the washbasin pop-up waste wasn't popping anywhere.
Elsewhere everything was generally well looked after - one of the two mugs was chipped. Don't forget to take a tea towel and scourer. The comments about the A/C had been addressed, you now get the remote controller. A room safe is available to hire at 12 Euro per week.
Within the resort service was first rate, prices were generally quite low, food was generally good but the wine was awful. The Ionion supermarket near the fountain stocked drinkable J.P.Chenet wine.
If considering sightseeing tours, the Melissani cave is entered and exited via a very long and very steep passageway, anyone with mobility issues would find it a trial. Similarly, the Drogorati cave involves quite a few steep, and sometimes slippery, steps.
Kato Katelios is a great little cheap trip by ferry from Skala. It has a small beach next to a lovely wide and shallow area of water within a breakwater - ideal for children. There are five or six little beach restaurants - and that's it. If the weather turns bad the return is by taxi. The ferry is from the same area as the Vangelis trips - about a 10-15 minute walk from Skala main street. The only downside was climbing onboard the ferry via a set of step ladders!More

Basic, you get what you pay for but a great little place!
We stayed at some apartments around the corner, but we used the Makis pool every day when we were chilling out, I also used this little jewel of a place in 2005, 2006 and 2010 as its very quiet and in a sun trap out of any wind. Its only a 3 min flat stroll from the centre with lots of bars and restaurants, my only gripe is Skala is now alot more quiet than it was in 2005, 2006 there is a severe lack of evening entertainment as the police are cracking down on noise from the bars and hotels and its put people off returning, but Im too old for nightclubs now so its all good.
Rita and the staff are all very friendly and its a very clean place, my pals stayed here and they have never had a bad word, defo should be a 3 star not a 2 star plus, Ive stayed in 2 stars in the past and let me tell you they were poor in comparison to Makis studios.

I stayed at the Makis with my friend in September 2014. We were very pleased with the accomodation, plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space. Mesh blinds were at the windows so we were able to sleep with windows open. Everywhere was immaculate, could not fault the cleanliness. Lovely pool and bar serving snacks, the pool was cleaned daily. Near to main road with plenty of bars and restaraunts.More

Late summer break in Kefalonia
Last week we returned from a lovely 2 week holiday at the Makis Studios. The studios surpassed our expectations and on arrival we were delighted to see the immaculate site. The rooms are basic but immaculate, the whole place is spotless. Rita and her team put their heart and soul into keeping the whole place as clean as possible.
The pool was lovely and also looked after on a daily basis surrounded by beds and shades.
The bar area is central to the studios and a really good cooked breakfast is very good and affordable. The situation is only a five minute walk from shops, supermarkets and restaurants. You couldn't do better than to book the Makis Studios. Thank you Rita and team.More
