Quiet, friendly and with a good view
Stayed 3 nights in Juky. Quiet location, good view over value and mountain. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and functional. Air conditioning worked well. The pool was a great place to cool off on arrival. Meals were available, and were of good quality if limited choice (before peak season, due to cancellations from Greek economic situation). The local beach was a short walk downhill, with a small sandy area and a small rocky area; the day we were there it was ok, but not great.

Informal relaxation destination in remote location
We found the availability of this hotel when searching online for specific dates for a holiday to Kefalonia. Other reviews about its remote location and ability to relax and unwind appealed to us. This cannot be overstated! We chose to hire a car for 3 days. As we have had such a fantastic time, next time we will hire a car for the whole of our stay. Other reviews mention having a room on the second floor: we did not have to request this - our room had already been allocated on this preferred floor. The views are breathtaking. The pool is lovely, a lot bigger than you might expect for a hotel of this size. The bar area is great, having a bit inside and also seating outside. Our bathroom and the loos near the bar were impeccably clean and our room was made up every day. Our towels were changed once during the week, which was adequate. There are two beaches within walking distance: St Thomas's and Trapezaki. Both are down very steep hills, so this must be considered if you are not very agile. But you can park at both, so if you have a car, that makes it easier. Having a car is also beneficial if you want to eat out, as both beaches have small tavernas (St Thomas = 2, Trapezaki = 1). Eating at the hotel is "OK" but not fine dining level. The staff all speak superb English and Reception arranged our car hire. The gardens are lovely, if a little unkempt. Try Denis's Taverna, Trapezaki beach for a meal out. Stunning and VERY high class. Tip: take own teabags!

Breathtaking views
We were so taken back with the views from our room - opened up shutters and the scene really took our breath away - turquoise seas backed by mountains. Also I have never seen such an abundance of flora on this most prettiest of Greek islands and we have been to quite a few. The only drawback and it is a must - cars are essential because where the hotel is situated is a bit removed from any of the towns or restaurants although having said that just a 10min walk away by St.Thomas' beach there are two or three tavernas. The beaches around the island are beautiful and Argistole/Fishcardo are a must to visit. The roads are sometimes a bit dicey but if you take it carefully you should be ok. - just watch out for a few mad Green drivers as they never acknowledge you when you give way (always give way to right etc. on roundabout). Back to the hotel - the staff are friendly and helpful and our maid was delightful - clean sheets and towels every day so that was great. The breakfasts were a bit samey and tended to cater more for the Continental/Scandinavian tastes.If you are on halfboard suggest you venture out to try the other restaurants as you might want to have a change of scenery now and again. We will certainly go back to this most lovely island and wish all that go there as happier time as we have had.

Excellent budget hotel with beautiful views
You could not ask for more for this price. Excellent hospitality, great views of the beautiful sea, clean rooms. It would be best to hire a car to stay here.

Very enjoyable stay at Karavados Beach Hotel.
Thoroughly enjoyed stay at Karavados Beach. Staff very warm and hospitable and could not do enough to help in any way. Lovely views from balcony of beach and mountains. Gardens colorful and well maintained. Good size swimming pool with lots of sunbeds and parasols available. Visited June 2014 and had pool to ourselves at times. Table tennis also popular among guests. Unfortunately mosquitos troublesome first night but plugin device then duly supplied, as well as cream and no further problems. Hotel more secluded than realised but this was a bonus for us,very peaceful,relaxing and quiet. Other guests hired cars and visited other parts of the island. We may consider hiring a car when return for another stay in the future. Went on coach tour around island which was informative and enjoyable. My husband and I are both vegetarians and were well catered for at the hotel. Invited to give notice in morning if particular vegetarian meal wanted, ie vegetarian mousaka which was not on the menu but cooked when requested. Local beach 10 minute walk but does not provide sunbeds and parasols. However was a shack like construction which the public were welcome to use which we did on several occasions. Highly enjoyable holiday with lovely memories and intend to go back again.
