"Beautiful and relaxing place to stay in Kefalonia"
Astra is simply perfect for a relaxing break in the hot Greek sun. Friendly staff, very chilled-out place, all buildings and decor in excellent conditions, the gardens are fantastic. Super pool, lots of sun beds, even in August we always got lots of pool-side time. The sea and a little beach called Ammes is literally 250 metres from Astra, so it's perfect for an afternoon dip. Restaurant is decent enough but probably the only weak link, especially as there's not that many restaurants nearby either.
The only watch-out....if you don't like aeroplanes landing/taking off, then this isn't the place for you! It's very close to the runway, but the planes only land a few times a day, and even then they're actually quite a cool spectacle.

After reading all the previous reviews, I thought it would be hard to meet those standards. Well, it went further and if I could it would be six stars. Arrived on an very early flight from Athens, welcomed into Katerina and Barry home/hotel and from that moment is was a life changing experience.
We hired a car for the second half of a six day stay and each day, we were given guidance of what to see and do. For the first three days, Katerina and Barry would drive us to the local town, where we would hop on a ferry to one of the islands and then get a taxi back.
In the evenings we were treated to Katerina's cooking. Imagine your favourite restaurant, well this it is plus a lovely setting looking down on the flowers in the courtyard and village.
Stayed there for a few nights - staff were amazing - especially at reception. Really helpful and went out of their way to attend to every need. Great views of the sunrise (sun sets on the other side of the island). The main outdoor pool is amazing - massive - never feels crowded. Breakfast buffet was good, lunch was a little disappointing. Didn't try the dinner. Comfortable rooms - spacious and nice balconies - we stayed in a junior suite (room 611) -- recommend that strip.
It was our fourth stay at the hotel. Having got engaged there last year we went back on our honeymoon and were not dissapointed. 10 days in paradise! Beautiful setting, amazing hotel and great, friendly staff. You couldn't ask for more!! We will definately be going back.

The hotel is new and very well maintained. The hostess (Aphroditi) is an excellent host and makes sure that you have anything you need. The small village of Agia Efimia is a quiet and very quaint place. It is suitable for families as well as couples/singles. Restaurants/grocery shopping is within walking distance from the hotel. You can swim at the hotel's swimming pool or choose to go to one of the amazing nearby beaches (you need a car or bike). Plenty of things to see on the northern part of the island as Afroditi pointed out to us and she was right on the money. I highly recommend the hotel as everything was perfect.
