Μας έσωσε το Magnolia Resort
Είχαμε κλείσει να μείνουμε σ' ένα άλλο ξενοδοχείο στον Κατελειό αλλά, όταν φτάσαμε, ανακαλύψαμε ότι το ξενοδοχείο είχε κλείσει χωρίς να το ξέρει κανείς, ήμασταν σε μια δύσκολη κατάσταση. Ένας ντόπιος οδηγός ταξί μας πήγε αντί γι' αυτό στο Magnolia Resort και κάμε την τύχη μας! Το ξενοδοχείο είναι πεντακάθαρο, η πισίνα είναι φανταστική και η οικογένεια που το διευθύνει δεν θα μπορούσε να είναι πιο ευγενική. Μας δόθηκε ένα όμορφο δωμάτιο με θέα τα βουνά και κανόνισαν άμεσα με τον πάροχο των διακοπών να μεταφερθεί η κράτηση του αρχικού ξενοδοχείου στο δικό τους. Καταλήξαμε με ένα πολύ χαλαρωτικό διάλειμμα στο τέλος της σεζόν σε ένα ξενοδοχείο στο οποίο απλά δεν θα μπορούσαμε να βρούμε κανένα ψεγάδι. Ευχαριστούμε πολύ.

Peace perfect Peace
What a wonderful peaceful hotel. The owners and staff were unbelievable, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotlessly clean and tidied and cleaned freshly everyday. The food in the Rosebud Bistro was delicious and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious The local tavernas in Katelios which is about a 15 minute walk serve excellent food at various prices Can’t really say anything negative about the resort and we have already booked for next year. There is so much to see on the island and we just have to go and do some more exploring. Can’t wait. See you next year Nota Effi Alex Chris Nassier and Denis

My wife and I were fortunate to spend two weeks in August at the Magnolia. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the surroundings and the warm welcome we received from all staff. We found there to be alot of attention to detail throughout the hotel. This we found was due to it being a family ownership. Everything was top quality from the food to the facilities and service. 3 members of staff who were particularly helpful throughout our stay were Helen, Christopher and the female barmaid, whose name we cant remember. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer but we hope that one day we will return.
Friendly and relaxing
We spent 11 nights at the Magnolia. The rooms are of a good size and were kept spotlessly clean. We particularly liked the electric blinds which kept the sunshine out in the early morning. Air con was good. The towels and bedding were changed probably every 3 days but certainly not longer than that. All of the staff were extremely friendly and always keen to ensure we were enjoying our holiday. The pool area is lovely. Never a problem with sunbeds and the pool was never crowded. The pool towels were exchanged when requested. We found the breakfast more than adequate especially for a hotel of this size. All in all we had a lovely peaceful stay at the Magnolia. Thank you to all of the staff who helped make our holiday so enjoyable.

Another delightful stay.
My wife and I who are of the more senior variety, have stayed at this hotel for about seven years, but also visit many others on our travels. We find it really special, and the main reason we believe is that it is family owned and run. There are rules, but on reflection these are simply to keep up the standards and quality of the whole establishment. The whole environment is one of peace and quiet enjoyment. It is perhaps not a venue for the young and more boisterous couples, but it is not a 'care home' either, and the young at heart are welcomed and appear to thoroughly enjoy what is on offer. The staff are simply delightful, nothing is too much trouble, and we have found them all warm and friendly. Much is written about the breakfasts. I would say that the food offered is…

Lovely friendly hotel
Just returned from our week at the Magnolia hotel. The resort was fairly quiet as we like. The hotel was well run with friendly staff and excellent food. The hotel and grounds were really clean and we'll kept. A ten minute walk takes you to the waterfront where there are lots of good restaurants and cafés. A good choice for couples.

Super, relaxing holiday!
We stayed at the Magnolia Resort for a week and it was our first visit to this hotel. It is a family run hotel which was spotlessly clean and well organised. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were well sized with balconies facing inland. The poolside area was large with plenty of comfortable sun loungers, which were available all day. The pool itself was kept very clean at all times. It was the perfect place to relax. We stayed on a variable board basis so had 4 evening meals in and 3 out in the week. That was a good arrangement to give us a chance to also sample some local restaurants nearby. The food was always delicious and service great. The snack bar by the pool was also just right for the middle of the day. The hotel is in a lovely, pretty location and…

We have just returned from this beautiful family run resort and what an amazing time we had. (apart from the forest fires which were near us). The hotel is clean and the facilities are spot on. Bedding is changed every other day, towels etc everyday, you are supplied with towels for your sun loungers which are changed after a weeks stay. The staff are so friendly, the bar staff even fetch your drinks to you around the pool. Bar food is delicious and the restaurant food is fabulous. I can't express what a fantastic place this is. We will definitely return.
Swindon United Kingdom
We have just had the most amazing time at the magnolia resort,every aspect of the hotel was spotless.The staff were wonderful,nothing was too much trouble,they were always cheerful and professional.Like many people I checked reviews on the resort prior to booking,one of the main issues seemed to be related to breakfast which I found more than adequate,there were at least 3 types of bread every day,3 different cereals,fresh fruit,tinned fruit,Greek yogurt,bacon,scrambled egg,fruit juice etc,etc...My conclusion is,if you want a relaxing holiday,beautifully clean pool,peaceful surroundings and lots of gorgeous authentic Greek food then book the magnolia resort,,,,if you want a full English or pie and mash try blackpool

Just returned from a fabulous week at the magnolia resort. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, our cases were taken to our room and we were accompanied by a staff member who showed us how everything worked. The rooms are spotless and were cleaned daily, our room was well situated with beautiful mountain views from the balcony. The pool area is lovely and there was always plenty of sun beds, the pool bar had a great menu and the drinks were reasonably priced, we also ate in the rosebud restaurant a couple of times, the food was tasty and again well priced. There are a couple of tavernas nearby as well as those down in the village which is around 10 minutes walk. We can’t say we had any issues with staff, the breakfasts or the pool towels and yes you…

Beautiful tranquil setting
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the staff and owners of the hotel. Check was swift and our cases were taken to our room whilst another member of staff explained the safe and door codes etc. We were also told that changing pool towels could be done every few days which is not a problem. During our stay I had to deal with an urgent issue (in the UK) and Mrs Nota and her family facilitated this for me, without their kindness I couldnt of done it. I also asked about vegetarian options in the hotels Rosebud restaurant and Mrs Nota's daughter even offered to make me a veggie lasagne and bring it in from home. The food by the poolside bar which is served between 1 and 4pm is excellent value for money and the home made chips are beautiful. Breakfast is…

Absolutely fantastic hotel, can’t recommend it high enough! We are still here and do not want to go home! The hotel is very clean and is a family run hotel which is adults only and that really helps. Rooms a very large and well equipped, pool is very large and plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Nicolai in the restaurant it’s his first year here but it felt like he was part of the family! Rooms are cleaned everyday just hand in your electric card and they go and clean it. Now for location , PERFECT just a 10min stride outside a lovely little beach from village called Kateleios with splendid bars and restaurants also car and boat hire. We hired a couple of Quad bikes from Dave just 2mins walk outside the hotel on the left heading…

The perfect hotel for relaxation
I went to this hotel as a retirement sunshine break to relax with my friend. It was just the perfect place for that. The atmosphere is very calm and easy, and I found everyone who works at the hotel to be very helpful and welcoming, Chris has a lovely cheery manor, and Nota and Effi always had time to ask how you were and have a little chat. The beds were so comfy, I had no trouble sleeping and the rooms were kept lovely and clean. We enjoyed eating at the hotel, both breakfast and evening meals were very tasty, I had sea bass on the first night, and couldn’t belief how cheap it was. This was my first time to Kefalonia and my breath was literally taken away by its beauty. We hired a car for a couple of days and I’m so glad we did, l will definitely return to the island

We've just had a fantastic week at the Magnolia in Katelios. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and pleasant and the evening meals although limited in choice are excellent quality with good service. The pool area and pool bar are the best we've ever had anywhere and there were always plenty of sunbeds available. It's a hotel we would certainly come back to.
Wonderful return visit
Got back yesterday from our second stay at this amazing hotel. Within half an hour of us arriving there last year, we both said that we’d return in 2018, and we did. When you check in at the desk in the beautifully cool and elegant reception, you won’t be prepared for what awaits you at the pool area. It’s an absolutely stunning setting: a huge, gorgeous pool, large beautifully appointed bar at one end, and very tasteful designed accommodation blocks on two sides. All with the lovely back drop of the mountain range. The rooms are immaculate both in cleanliness, and decor, as is the whole place. When checking in, the lovely lady who owns it welcomed us back, and there were two small complimentary bottles of wine and a fresh, white rose in a vase on our dressing table. Little…

Πάρτε μας πίσω! .... Και πάλι!
Έχουμε επιστρέψει πρόσφατα από τη δεύτερη επίσκεψή μας στο ξενοδοχείο Magnolia και για άλλη μια φορά είμαστε εξαιρετικά εντυπωσιασμένοι από τα πάντα, από την φιλικότητα του προσωπικού προς την καθαριότητα όλων των χώρων του ξενοδοχείου. Για να μην αναφέρουμε τα νόστιμα γεύματα και δείπνα που φάγαμε στο μπαρ και στο εστιατόριο. Τα δωμάτια καθαρίζονται καθημερινά σε πολύ υψηλό επίπεδο και όλα διαθέτουν κλιματισμό που ελέγχει τη θερμοκρασία. Τα μπάνια είναι καθαρά και μοντέρνα. Διαθέτει ψυγείο, παροχές για τσάι, στεγνωτήρα μαλλιών, άφθονο ντουλάπα και θυρίδα ασφαλείας σε κάθε δωμάτιο. Το φαγητό που σερβίρεται στο μπαρ κατά το μεσημέρι είναι πολύ νόστιμο και πάντα σερβίρεται με ένα χαμόγελο. Κατά τη γνώμη μας, οι τιμές των γευμάτων ήταν πολύ καλές. Έχουμε δει μερικές αρνητικές…

perfect destination for peace and relaxation
Just stayed here for two weeks. PERFECTION!! Family run by three generations. Lovely man takes your cases to room. Rooms a great size with bed linen changed every other day. Pool towers could be changed daily. Hotel spotless in all areas. Pool beautiful, really friendly staff. Breakfast you could have fruit, yogurt, cooked, cereal, toast, pastries, cheese and cold meats. For lunch variety of toasties, omelettes, dips or pizzas very reasonable priced. 17 choices for main meals in evening on half board. very quiet and adult only without any entertainment! Bliss!! Katelios has a lovely beach used by many locals, small fishing harbour and we saw turtles swimming in there most days. About 12 different Taverners along the seafront and a few shops. Definitely fantastic for those…

A lovely week away
This hotel is perfect for people liking the idea of an adults only break, its also a perfect destination for a spotlessly clean and friendly hotel set 15 minutes walk (we timed it!!) from the small beachfront town of Katelois. The rooms are spaceous and comfy with good airconditioning. The breakfasts are fine and plentiful only if a little limited on variety, but this is Greece remember! All the bar staff are very friendly and the drinks prices are very reasonable. The poolside area is very inviting and the pool is warm enough to tempt you in. There are plenty of Tavernas nearby to persuade to take a small walk away from the hotel during the evening, a particular mention must go to Perusas (lovely food and atmosphere) and Jerrys which was also very welcoming and had an excellent…

First Class as usual !!!!!!
Our 3rd holiday in Kefalonia & 3rd time at The Magnolia. We wouldn't stay anywhere else, why would you, it's perfect. I've said it before, you can't please everyone but when people start getting personal about individuals it really winds me up !!!! People go back to The Magnolia year after year and why wouldn't you ? Nota, Effi and the boys are the perfect hosts so I really struggle with the negativity. The half board menu is somewhat limited - so go self catering, simple. The food has always been great. As for not enough breakfast choice, how much choice do you people want for god sake ?? The fantastic reviews out way the negative,we can't all be wrong ???
