... and enjoying the afternoon. They were doing a lifeboat drill on board and we could see the process from our table. We went back to the ship about 3. I tried for any free wifi but none available. We skipped the fancy dinner, went to the buffet instead and then to the 8pm show. Tonight it was acrobats and magicians. Tomorrow is a sea day followed by Venice. Hopefully, Karen's knee will feel better by ...
... that Simon and I are on the same wavelength when it comes to food! As it was John wasn’t keen on us leaving the boat as he wanted to get going again but it would turn out that Simon was still drunk from the night before, haha.
As we sailed away the conversation turned to who was to blame for the men coming home at 4am. It was so funny. Laura said ‘I thought you guys were going for a couple of hours?’, John protested ‘it *was* a couple ...
... campers, right on the beach, looking out across the ocean to the Ionian isands - Kefalonia and Zakinthos. People had built lots of windmills along the edge of the beach, which were going mad in the strengthenng wind.
Had a beautiful swim right on sunset where we spent lots of time together just mucking aroud in the wave. Took some really nice photos of Sara in the sea with the sunset behind. Not a great night as the wind got really strong and ...

We've opted to have the Pork Special Dinner here at the Eryphilli as we missed it last week, and I'm happy we did as it was very nice indeed. After that we all set up camp on our terrace for a very relaxing last evening here on Kefalonia.

Historical Traveler Reviews Venus Hotel & Suites Kalamaki
just got back from second visit to this family run hotel.It is part way through a 1 million euro revamp with beautiful new bathrooms with power showers,new bar with all new seating,retiled and newly refurnished pool areas.It is to have all new bedroom furniture and full room internet access next year.
We Just got back from a week in Kalamaki at the Venus Hotel. We wanted a cheapie in the sun for a week and that is basically what we got. The Venus is ok but a week is enough, breakfast is a bit bland to say the least. We have read many good reports about the Venus so i guess it comes down to ones personal tastes at the end of the day.
Der Beste entspannede Urlaub
Komme gerade zurück. Die Angestellten hätten nicht freundlicher und hilfsbereiter sein können, der Ort ist sehr sauber und ordentlich. Es liegt sehr nahe zum Strand und vielen Bars und Restaurants. Wir haben einen Bootsausflug gemacht und Meeresschildkröten gesehen, dass war echt toll. Können es kaum erwarten, nächstes Jahr wieder hinzukommen.
The Hotel Venus really is the Hotel of Love. To start with the room was spacious, clean and had a lovely balcony. The staff especially the maids were very friendly and helpful.
we booked this hotel/holiday as a lastminute deal and were very pleasantly surprised. i agree with most previous posts, nice hotel, exceptional staff. basic breakfast and very warm welcome.
We booked this directly through the hortels own website - Just google it, and paid half up front as a deposit, and it was a bargain.
The hotel is family run and all the staff are friendly and the service was great! The rooms were always clean and the hotel overall was always kept to an excellent standard. The breakfast was buffet style, mainly continental but there were some hot food items. The pool bar had a good menu with breakfast items if you miss the 10am deadline for the buffet.
Best relaxing holiday ever
Just arrived back staff could not have been more helpful, place very claen and tidy. Very close to the beach and also close to restaurants and bars. Went on a great boat trip and saw about 10 loggerhead turtles it was brill. Cannot wait to return there next year.
