    Beautiful and well maintained grounds and pools. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom products were very nice and they kept them stocked daily. Food at the buffet and Italian restaurant were very good. Great selection of choices of food. Only complaint would be that with the half board plan, no drinks were provided with the dinner, not even water! Also, even though we had our room set to do not disturb, the maids still entered our rooms and cleaned and people knocked on our doors to refill coffee etc. Those were the only things that bugged me and that’s really not anything to worry about. Honestly, It’s definitely the best hotel on the island! We rented a car and traveled over the entire island. The best beaches are on the west side of the island. Xi beach is right by the resort and is one of the nicest. Try the tavern on Xi beach. The food is really good and cheap! The hotel is worth the money for sure. We got massages at the spa and the ladies there were wonderful. We loved our stay and the island. Next time I would spend a little more and get a villa with a private pool 😀

    Great for large families

    Negatives - very inflexible reservation staff. I booked 5 rooms for my family and ended up adding an additional nights. Considering the size of the booking, I would have thought they would have been much more accommodating with my requests. Positives - The Resort was great, lots of space for kids. Great pool areas and the food was decent. Fresh fruit at mealtimes were excellent.

    Pool area closes at 6pm, which is too early.

    Definitely not a 5* hotel. Very disappointed to find the pool and the whole pool area closed at 6pm - this seemed very early, especially on hot days - we had to go to a friends hotel after 6pm. There is only one pool which felt rather small for the size of the hotel -the other pool shown in the photos was for the private use of certain guests. The pool often felt busy, even though the hotel wasn't full. Breakfast was ok, no fresh juices. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Beautiful planting around the grounds. Plenty of parking. Locally there isn't much on offer - a few tavernas by the beach, but Xi beach isn't very nice. For a nice beach you have to go to Patani - half an hours drive. The children claimed the wifi wasn't very good

    Overall hotel very nice and got a complimentary room upgrade however service wasn’t very good, and in the bar was extremely poor. On one occasion my group of 6 waited approximately 30 minutes (possibly more) to receive some drinks. The bar wasn’t even very busy at the time and there seemed like there were sufficient staff around. On pretty much every occasion though the drinks took a lot longer than they should have and the staff never seemed terribly apologetic. I would give the hotel in general 4-5 stars. Service by the pool/bar area 1-2.

    FABULEUX !

    Découverte d'îles grecques (Céphalonie et Ithaque) encore méconnues et préservées. Magnifiques, luxuriantes avec des paysages fabuleux. Un savant mélange d'activités diverses (plage, ballade...) a rendu ce séjour dépaysant et reposant.

    Insgesamt eine schöne und saubere Anlage. Der Service lässt etwas zu wünschen übrig. Großer Minuspunkt: Die Gläser waren morgens wie abends immer dreckig. Wir waren in dem neuen Teil des Hotels. Die Ausstattung des Zimmers war hochwertig, allerdings wurde ziemlich unsauber gearbeitet.

    Excellent séjour à Céphalonie fin septembre

    Excellent séjour à l'Apollonion Resort de Xi Beach.Excellente nourriture et service impéccable sauf au bar près du restaurant où les sièges en bois ont presque tous des fientes d'oiseaux ( le personnel ne les nettoie pas même après une remarque) et les sièges en tissus sont très vieux et très sales. Les chambres sont bien conçues et très agréables, nettoyage quotidien très satisfaisant. Belle piscine et très belle plage de sable fin à 300m idéale pour les familles et les seniors. Nous n'avons pas rencontré de francophone durant notre séjour d'une semaine, anglais très utile. Voiture indispensable pour des visites intéressantes (Argostoli et ses énormes tortues marines à voir le matin entre 9h et 11h, criques superbes et villages de montagne ...). Pas de moustique ou très peu pour un séjour du 17 au 24 septembre avec eau de la mer et de la piscine bien agréable.
