Advantages Something for everyone, of every age.
Disadvantages Bit of a walk into Skala in the heat of the day.
Are you thinking of going to Greece?Are you thinking of going to Kefallonia?
Are you thinking on going to Skala?If the answer to these questions is “Yes” then do look at going to Pelagos Bay.
We spent 2 weeks there this June and where not disappointed.My brother and his wife have been staying at Pelagos Bay for the past 4 years, and as it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and will be Ian and Lynn’s in September, we decided to go back to Kefallonia, as it was our first Greek holiday 20 years ago.
Pelagos Bay is a little out of Skala, about a 30 minute walk down a slight hill and that was walking with a 70 year old uncle. The journey back is a couple of minute in a taxi, 4 or 5 euros for up to 4 people.Pelagos Bay is run by Billy, his wife Barbara, and their many staff. I can do nothing but praise them as nothing is any trouble to them. Once there you are part of their family for the length of your stay and you will remain their friends for a lifetime.
Our group of 13 was of age range from Uncle Dougie at 77 to Molly our Granddaughter of 20 months. Not any of us where disappointed with our stay, and we are looking forward to going to visit Billy and clan again.The rooms are very well maintained and some have baths in the bathroom as well as showers, hairdryers, wonderful for Greece. As we all stayed bed and breakfast, we where surprised to find kettles fridge and mugs in the rooms so we could make ourselves a morning / late night cuppa.
The bedding is changed 3 times a week and towels everyday if you want.All of the rooms have balconies with a sea view, and air conditioning at no extra cost.
Food is available throughout the day from the bar and the menu is varied and at a reasonable cost. The Mezzi either meat or veggie is just wonderful for 6 euro for two people, large beer is 3 euros so a very good lunchtime meal.On Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, change over days, they do cook an evening meal, and this changes and is a welcome meal having spent the day travelling.
Over the road from the hotel is Pelagos Bay itself, which is accessible via a track and steps down to the wonderful beach. When sat by the sea you cannot hear the sound of the road above and you are also hidden from view via the wonderful shrubbery at the top of the bay. If you stay at the hotel you are able to use the kayaks that are fastened to the steps with Bill’s permission, they also have sunshades that you can take onto the beach.
Again nothing is of any trouble or too much for Billy and Barbara.
The dancing is started by Billy with his son Yannis 11 and daughter Katarina 9 giving a demonstration of their dancing, and then we all join in, a really wonderful GREEK evening.One other thing that I forgot to mention is they have a family of tortoise in the gardens, which the children seemed to be fascinated with.
You don’t have to take my word for it, as I said they have the highest return rate of any resort complex on the island, and that speaks for itself.
