Katelios Reviews

We love Katelios as it's quiet and peaceful with some good restaurants along the sea front and a choice of pools/sunbeds available for the price of a drink/ice cream. Be aware that the town beach is not brilliant but there are plenty of sun beds in front of the restaurants and the sea is shallow for kids. <br /> <br /> The Santa Barbara beach is more scenic but access to the sea is over pebbles/rocks and there are no sunbeds. Not a great place for night life but good food and peace readily available for those who don't want to party.

We like peace and quiet, no discos or loud music bars and Katelios is beautifully tranquil. Just a small village with a few tavernas, two supermarkets and a small gift shop. The best time of day is early morning, we went out for a walk most days before the sun rose when it was pleasantly cool and not a soul about. Beautiful. The best beaches are reached by car, the one in the village is not great. The tavernas we tried were all good, with a large choice of typically Greek food, along with pizzas, burgers etc for those who don't like the local cuisine. The wine is very cheap and very good.

Old school Greek resort, more about the locals than the tourists. They welcome you back like an old friend. Great selection of tavernas and mini markets. Lovely bakery higher up in the village. Nice beach with warm shallow sea, great for kids.

A small fishing village which we have been going to for 20 years. It has not changed too much or grown too big as some resorts do. Tavernas along the sea front serve good food and drink. A place to go to relax and enjoy.

We went for a quiet and relaxing holiday and that's just what it was. Was not over impressed by the local beach, but there were plenty of others to choose from. Plenty of good places to eat, food very good. Would definitely revisit this resort again.

Quiet but plenty of bars and places to eat. Go to the grill bar in the village, great value and fab food. Waves beach bar, best place for a drink/snack right on the beach. Turn left once you get to the beach after coming through the village.

Excellent for what we wanted, quiet, peaceful with friendly people, however, if you are looking for nightlife and lots of bars this resort is probably not for you. There is nothing there for older children except the beach, however, this is a nice place to spend the day and is very safe for young children as it is shallow.

We go for quiet places to chill out in. There's not a lot going on here because it's not commercialized. It's a small, friendly place and tavernas and bars are very good. There are a couple of well stocked, mini markets if you're self catering.

We have been before so obviously like it. It is a quiet resort with countryside all around the small sleepy fishing village. The village has a number of restaurants (about 6) on the beach which serve some of the cheapest fish I have ever had, we paid 13 euros each for a very large sea bass with a Greek salad and 1/2 litre of wine. There are a few other cafes and bars leading to the beach. The loungers on the beach are attached to the restaurants and are free however the beach is much better a few minutes away but has no loungers.

A most relaxing stay in an, as yet, unspoilt resort. Beachside tavernas serving locally caught fish on their extensive menus sit along side a couple of very well appointed cocktail bars. The sea is usually like a mill pond and great for bathing. Boat hire available but this is not the resort if you are looking for a full on activity holiday. This would be better satisfied by travelling 6 miles along the coast to Skala. Katelios is a stunningly beautiful resort with mountains surrounding it and a view across the sea to Zante in the distance. Don't want to recommend this to many people, we would hate it to become spoilt by holidaymakers! Terrific resort.

Katelios is lovely. There are lots of restaurants that serve gorgeous fresh fish. The bus service is reliable and very reasonably priced. The beach is perfect and the sea stays reasonably shallow so it's safe. There is not a great deal for children apart from the beach but that wasn't a problem as we were 3 adults. We would have liked a bigger supermarket as the one in the village was limited in stock. There is a travel shop where excursions can be booked. They were very helpful and the tours were reliable.
