We thought that the Hotel was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the rooms and communal areas were always spotlessly clean. We had a room on the first floor and the view was spectacular. The room, whilst fairly basic, was typically Greek with tiled floors and whitewashed walls. Due to the location of our room (right at the far end of the hotel) we thought it was really quiet. Be sure to check out the Atmosphere Bar between 10 & 11 o'clock when all cocktails are half price.
This is the best beach I have ever been to. The water is crystal clear and great for snorkelling as the fish come really close in. Get a sunbed near to the waters edge as the sand gets *very* hot. One slight criticism - €10 is an awful lot to pay for two sunbeds.
This was a fantastic day out. The boat leaves Argostoli at 9 o'clock and you return at 5.30 The crew work really hard to make sure you have a great day. We dropped anchor at Rabbit Island for a bit of snorkelling and then went to Xi beach for a bar-b-queue lunch. After lunch (and lots of wine which is included in the price) we had a mud bath and sailed back to Argostoli. The only disappointment was that we didn't see any dolphins. One thing that I *hated* was the karaoke on the way back. It put a bit of a downer on the whole day.
We booked the tour through ETAM travel in Lassi. The your itself was quite good. We went to a nunnery, a winery, and north to Fiscardo which was lovley. The problem was the guide really wasn't very good. She seemed to know nothing about the island and insisted on telling us stories which (in my opinion) really were quite dull. Her excuse for not knowing what the cross of St George looked like was that she wasn't a football fan. That said, lunch in Fiscardo was superb. Next time, I'll think I'll hire a car.
There were literally hundreds of people in the cave when we arrived so obviously this detracted from the spectacal. That said, the cave is really impressive with astonishing acoustics. If you do go, make sure that you hire a car and don't go as part of a tour as all of the coaches seem to arrive at the same time. We ended up queuing for about 20 minutes to get in. The steps are steep and slippery but as its an underground cave, I fail to how people can be surprised by this.
Really nice little village. We enjoyed feeding the fish with our bread.
We had to queue for a while but the lake itself was well worth the wait. The colour of the water is amazing. The boatmen sometimes sing and, I agree that it is difficult to understand what they're saying, but thats our fault for not learning Greek.
This bar was quite good. The cocktails were nice (even if they were a bit weak.) We went in there 3 times and were given a free shot each time. The waitress was lovely.
