Guestbook - Kefalonia Greece - Anassa Hotel on Kefalonia Island - Skala Beach


  • Holiday June 2022

    We had a fantastic holiday here in June 2022 the hotel was right by the beach and room was ideal with garden in front of the terrace. The staff was amazing they all called us b y our christian names and we new them by there names. Clavis / Nick/ Nicky/ Ryan all were polite and helpful . They had their own section of the beach and we had waiter service for drinks and food brought to you. Can’t wait to go back again soon. Thanks to everyone for making our holiday so good. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  • Excellent

    We booked this hotel at the last minute. Went 27th Sept till 4th Oct. We have never been to Kefalonia before and we loved it. The hotel is beautiful, clean and perfectly placed for the small centre, buses, taxis and beach. Fabulous location with a lovely infinite pool. Breakfast was basic but adequate for us. Niko in the bar was lovely and served amazing cocktails. We will definitely go again. The hotel closed for the season as we left and George the owner came out and waved us all off…. so nice.

  • Spotlessly clean accommodation

    August 2020 This was our 6th or 7th visit to Anassa Villas. I’m sure like many travellers we were concerned about keeping our holiday plans but on arrival at the Queen of Villas we immediately relaxed as it was clear every effort had been made to ensure it was covid safe with dettol spray and hand sanitizer provided, it was reassuring to see the same maintenance gentleman checking everything was good with the villa. When the pool lights came on at unusual times it was repaired as soon as we mentioned it. I felt safer in Kefalonia than the U.K. a perfect escape from working throughout the pandemic. We so glad we kept our holiday plans this year.

  • Breakfast and more

    Our villa had no electricity and no water for 60 hours in th middle of the hurricane so we dropped in to Anassa for breakfast. The meal was welcome and delicious. We were served by Mary who was a friendly human dynamo, nothing was too much trouble, and she was swift and we felt very well looked after.

    While waiting for our phones to charge in reception the English manager, and the barman both offered us the use of Anassa’s facilities especially showers if we needed them. They were so helpful, concerned and friendly. Thank you all so much, it really touched us.

    Our stay at the Anassa hotel was very pleasant and I wouldn’t be surprised if we return some day. Anassa Hotel is a very nice place with high standards in keeping the entire hotel including the rooms clean and tidy and has very nice and friendly owners and staff. The hotel is situated almost right at the beach, but we also had a nice time in the poolarea with the kids. Happy holiday!

  • Excellent week’s stay

    Thoroughly enjoyable stay for 1 week at the hotel. Every aspect of the holiday was a pleasure, from the owners, the staff, the hotel itself, its location and the food. No fighting for or getting up early for sunbeds. The rooms were clean and tidy. Just outside the hotel you can book the glass bottom boat which is moored across the road and get the water taxi’.Would we go back, definitely. Would we recommend it, absolutely.

  • Anassa Guest Book Recommendation

    Both myself and my daughter have been regular visitors at the Anassa Hotel for the last 6 years, and have experienced the best holidays you could ask for. The hotel is faultless!! its immaculate, excellently prepared and presented food, location, position, amenieties, and the staff are fantastic. they all go out of their way to ensure your requests are provided for and your holiday is one to always be remembered. Both my daughter and I have travelled extensively and can honestly say our holidays at the Anassa have been the best! everything you would expect from a holiday you get from the Anassa! Effie and George! hence the reason, we return there year after year! and have recommended it to all our friends who confirm our endorsement!. Effie and George are the best! Hercules is just fantastic and gives 100% to ensuring his clients have everything they want. Linda looks after the clients brilliantly and ensures everyone has a wonderful holiday that they will remember for a long time. The Anassa and staff deserve the success that are enjoying – its the best in Kefalonia and I thoroughly recommend anyone looking to have a fantastic holiday on the island should stay at.

  • great hotel


    We have just returned from the Anassa and found the hotel to be a wonderful place for a holiday, the hotel is sparklinlg clean and beautiful decorated rooms. The pool area is so relaxing. The best part about the Anassa are the people who run it, they are concerned about you from the moment that you arrive and nothing is too much trouble for them. We can’t wait to go back 2010. Highly highly recommended. Julie and John

    Julie and John Illingworth
  • Beautifully appointed hotel/studios

    What a tasteful, immaculate, beautifully appointed hotel. Studios and newly refurbished bathrooms are fantastic (boasting double wash hand basins and mirrors and an enclosed frosted glass shower cubicle with power shower), with the Anassa being situated in an ideal location, just over the road from the beach, and five to eight minutes walk from Skala’s main street with its many tavernas, bars and shops. A lovely resort which still retains its greek charm, and a first class hotel with lots of helpful staff and very friendly owners.

  • Fantastic !!!!

    Just got back last week from a 2 week stay at the Anassa and missing it already!
    When we arrived at the hotel we knew it was going to be one of the best. We were shown through to the bar by George and Effi for a welcome drink with Hercules,Linda and Nic. Needless to say we stayed for more than 1! Linda was fantastic and managed to rumble us up some food even though it was 11 pm.
    The Anassa is in an amazing setting and the beach is literally on your doorstep (great for those moonlight swims!) The pool area is clean with plenty of sunbeds, parasols and tables for everyone.
    The rooms were of a good standard and were very clean and well kept. We stayed self catering in the Thomson block, which Effi told me they were planning to upgrade during the winter months to have a larger more modern bathroom.
    The Greek night was fantastic; the food laid on for this was superb and there was more than enough to go around!! Food on lunchtime was always served quickly, we really enjoyed the special Mousakka which we requested with Hercules again for our last day and again it did not disappoint.
    What can I say, fantastic from start to finish! I will certainly be spreading the word about this fantastic little gem we found!!

    HI Effie and George

    Just to say how wonderful our holiday was. This was probably the most memorable holiday myself and Doris have had for a long time. This was due to all your care and attention to detail. On the day of the wedding you couldnt have done more and I would like to thank you and your friend for giving us the lifts to the wedding. Also can you please thank Linda, Herculus and Michael for looking after us so well and apoligise to Linda didnt get chance to give her the cocktail sticks back but your can let her know I did win so thanks for that. Doris as you know will be coming back next year with her husband and daughter I am hoping that I will also be able to return but this will depend on work commitments I promise I will let you know.

    Love to you all

    Sandra and Doris

    After a two week stay at the Anassa between the 2nd Aug-16th Aug earlier this month, we just had to drop you a line to tell you what a superb holiday we had. From the moment we walked in,the Greek hospitality from all the staff was evident and nothing was too much trouble.Hercules and Gee-Gee looked after us through the day, with Linda and Michael taking over on an evening.The food and drinks were first class and the view from the terrace out onto the sea was magnificent. We will be back in the very near future. Yammass! P.S.Photos will follow

We have just returned home today & unfortunately the fires were awful towards the end of our stay – however Effie & the team did everything possible to make us feel safe & we would like to thank them for their kindness. We hope everything is ok now & will see you again soon. Thank you for the best holiday yet. Love Maria & Jody xxx

The Harrison evening was great entertainment as was the barbecue, the staff worked so hard but always had a smile on their faces, suck pleasant people. We would definately recommend the Anassa and look forward to returning again. Missing it already.

  • David and Sandra Cheeseman from United Kingdom

    Just a few words to say how much we enjoyed staying with you again. Nothing was too much trouble, everyone was so helpful and friendly. Many thanks to Linda, Vasilly and Del for the great food and drinks; the lovely Rosie who makes the best B52’s and Sophia and Eleni who kept the place so clean and tidy. Last but not least to Effi and George who not only provided the warmest welcome anyone could wish for but also provided much needed free Greek language lessons. Sandra is looking forward to seeing you in October, unfortunately I will have to wait a bit longer… see you all August 2007.

  • Yvonne Phil and Lucy Brown from United Kingdom

    We have just returned from another holdiay lazing by the pool at the Anassa with the added bonus that this time we were actually staying there too! We can only describe the Anassa as a living paradise and kept having to pinch ourselves because we thought we were dreaming. We booked the holiday well over a year ago with our friends Phil Margaret and Stephanie and it was well worth the wait. Thank you so much to Effi, George, Spiros and everyone else at the Annasa for your warm welcome and your attentiveness for the whole of our stay. We will definately be returning for another taste of paradise. Goodbye for now until the next time.

  • Stef and Chris from United Kingdom

    Had the most fantastic holiday of our lives!!! The staff were all so very welcoming and friendly. Many thanks to Effy, Linda, Del, Bill, Rosie and Nicole. The hotel is amazing. The food was incredible. The resort/island is the nicest place in Greece. We arrived back from the Anassa only yesterday and I’ve already recommended the place to almost everyone I know. We too will be booking for next year as soon as possible. We wouldn’t of enjoyed the holiday half as much without the amazing staff that work at the Anassa. We send our love to you all and hope you are all well. Don’t miss us too much – hehe.
    See you all next year!!
    Don’t forget us – because we certainly won’t forget you.
