We stayed here for 4 nights 3 years ago and were happy with the hotel. We wanted to come back to Kefalonia so we rebooked for 2 weeks. We were aware that the hotel is modestly priced so were not expecting much more than a shower and a bed. We really wanted to use it just as a base. The...

Me and my family go to Palatino Hotel every year. We love the pool, the place, and the whole service! Plus, the location is very close to the center (Lixouri) and the beach (Xi, Makris yialos etc). Everything is very clean and the rooms are perfect!

We enjoyed our stay at the Palatino Hotel. A special mention to Ioanna who made amazing cocktails and sat chatting in the bar with us most nights. The pool area is lovely, with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. There was plenty of choice at breakfast however we found the hot food to be quite cold. The rooms were as...
