Hi we have just come back from the Lara Hotel in Lourdas, we found the staff helpfull, room typical greek basic but clean, room cleaned and linen changed every day, pool clean with plenty of sunbeds the downfall is the hill to the beach and up to the village square it is a challenge for all but the fit so be warned! having said that most of Lourdas is on a hill so if walking is a problem avoid it. we found plenty of travernas in easy reach but there is no night life that we found, if staying for more than a week a car is esential these are avalible locally. we went with Kosmar and our rep John was there when you needed him and not in your face like some resorts i have been to. All in all we enjoyed our time at Lara Hotel but that is us perhaps we dont expect to much.
