Marinos studios in Lourdata in the southern part of Kefallonia, is 500 metres from the beach, and offers great views to the Ionian sea or mountain Ainos. All studios are spacious, with a private balcony or veranda. There is also a garden full of trees and flowers, where you can enjoy a quiet, relaxing evening. You can have fun there using the barbecue and traditional wooden oven, where you can prepare your meals. You can reach the blue flag awarded beach of Lourdas, within few minutes walk, where you can enjoy many water sports. Very close to Hotel Marinos, there are many cafeterias, tavernas, bars and shops. Marinos studios are conveniently located to explore the surrounding areas and beaches and the natural beauty of Kefallonia.
we wanted a relaxing, beach side holiday with nearby restraurants & bars & a sea view hotel. we got all of the above.beach was idyllic,one particular r/ant,(just round the corner & up the hill) served delicious meals & staff were lovely. but i think marinos hotel, the view from our balcony,(watching the sunset) & the hospitality we recieved, made our holiday .10 out of 10
location was good, though it is extremely steep to get to the studios. it is great location to explore the islind if you are into exploring at all. If you are not , there is few beaches, Lourdas and Trapezaki you can reach by foot from studios, though again it is very tiresome because its steep.
There is many things I didnt like. the room we got was terribly small, we could hardly walk in pair. the bad was uncomfortable, the neighbor lady was extremely loud with very annoying voice from morning untill the evening. there were no hot shower if there were no sun that day, and we had 5 cloudy days in first quarter of September, so it was very unpleasant to have cold showers.
marinos is run by a wonderful family with many relatives/connections in the local town including restaurants and a beach bar called 'waikiki' on lourdas beach just a short walk from the hotel. thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone to stay here. i will definitely be back again.
