Advantages Well kept, clean accommodation in a brilliant location close to resort centre and beach
Disadvantages Music at the pool bar needs to be disconnected. End of.
I’ve just returned from a sun soaked week in Kefalonia and after dealing with the comedown of returning to raining England, I thought I would write a review of the hotel I stayed in.
We went as part of a package with Thomas Cook, and stayed from 13th July for 1 week so it was just before the school holidays. The cost was just under £400 per person.
At just over an hour away from the Airport, the Marietta village is located in a brilliant position only 500m from the resort centre with all it's bars, tavernas, supermarkets and shops.
The beach is only 900m away making it ideal for those who want to be in close proximity to the heart of the resort.
Luckily our room was on the first floor so we only had to climb up very few stairs, however we met a couple that were allocated an apartment on the top floor and said the 64 stairs (yep they counted!) were a killer, especially in the 40 degrees heat!You could go up another way by a slope which was useful when you were dragging your suitcase up on arrival. Despite this, if you have walking difficulties or are in a wheelchair, a ground floor apartment is a must. The main areas of the hotel (reception / restaurant) are accessible via ramps.
There was a play area for the kiddies, a mini library which was mostly made up of books left behind by guests which I thought it was a fab idea and made good use of!I thought the whole look of the village was really pretty and gave it a much more intimate feel than a high rise. The grounds were full of the most beautiful colourful flowers and the gardens were excellently maintained. So far, so impressed.
On arrival we didn’t have to go through check in procedure which was brilliant. The owner just gathered us, asked for our surnames and told us which rooms we were in and that the keys were already in the doors. Result! I hate waiting around in reception whilst they check everyone in, I just want to get on with it!We took a studio apartment which they say sleeps 2/3 although ours only had one double bed so they must have larger rooms with a pull out for 3 people.
Our room was small and basic, but spotless. One double bed, a double and single wardrobe with tonnes of hangers provided, a dresser with mirror, 2 bedside cabinets and a kitchenette with fridge, kettle, 2 ring cooker and adequate cutlery and crockery.
