The hotel has a great location in the southeast of the Greek island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, offering panoramic views and easy access to the famous Skala beach and resort. The surrounding beaches are superb, and the hotel is just 2 km from the pretty village of Skala with its restaurants, bars, pubs and nightspots, as well as links to the local public transport network and shopping venues, and 7 km from the traditional village of Poros, both worth visiting. Guests can discover the sandy vastness and shallow waters of Mounda Beach (4 km away), which is the reproduction habitat of the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta.
Renovated in 2010, this 39-room beach hotel symbolises the Greek peoples' passage in time, history and place. From Greek mythology of the Asterides (stars), the hotel shines like a lighthouse on the gentle, rocky hillsides overlooking the Ionian Sea. It is a family-run hotel, ideal for families and adults looking for a relaxing holiday in a resplendent environment. The hotel lounge has plush sofas and a big-screen TV and also offers various leisure activities such as free Internet access and a small library. The hotel is family-friendly and features a kids' club, children's playground and gardens.

Choose your board basis
Room ok, cleaning very poor, shower had poor drainage, overflowed on to toilet area. Bedding not changed in whole week we were there. Towels were changed once, and were frayed and poor quality. Pool towels also frayed and poor quality. No restaurant open, breakfast was basic and limited choice. Scrambled eggs and bacon always luke warm, even ran out of muesli 3 days before end of holiday. Pool area was best part and matched photos shown. Staff were friendly, but we would not return to this hotel.
Awful hotel! .paid for half board, none available due to Covid, not hotels fault.... breakfast was brought to you instead of Buffett again due to covid... the room not great, fridge rattles all night And the shower floods the room. Would go to Kefalonia again but not this hotel!
Booked through Travel Republic but that’s another story! We visited during the Coronavirus period and didn’t know really what to expect. Got to the hotel mid afternoon just in time to get a bite to eat - all very English, chips with everything, and was told no restaurant in the evening due to low occupancy , only about 40% to normal. Still they provide a free taxi at 11, 2pm 4pm 7 and 8pm with pick ups at the same time as drop off down to Skala village about 3km away (you wouldn’t want to walk it). Staff (Mr Costas and family) are lovely and helpful and practiced social distancing and face covering meticulously, probably why so low level of virus in Greece. Room was clean but no way 4 star. We were self catering but little in the way of utensils which made cooking difficult. Only had 2 electric rings a microwave fridge and sink but made the best of it. The air conditioning was set to 16 degrees and made a bit of a racket but gave some relief from the daytime temperatures. Bar drinks were average price for the area with a good selection of spirits etc willingly served by Demetrius. Breakfast was varied from fried eggs to water melon all served with a smile by a very hard working Maikis.
I think we were lucky to come high season but have low season crowds this made restaurants easy to get in as tables always available. If you come here only have the little fish as bigger varieties are frozen imported, most restaurants do sardines and anchovies which are delicious. The town is great, no one being sick no clubs no pushy PAs but yet young old and middle aged mix well. Water is crystal clear, but little in the way of underwater life just like most of the Mediterranean, just take a trip to Zante from Porus sit back and enjoy the ride - well worth the 40euro.
All in all a great relaxing holiday surprisingly and would come back again
