Well im all packed and ready for our second trip to the Pericles Hotel !! We are off tomorrow.. can't wait ..
Any others flying out there this weekend ? We are taking our two children this year, hope to see some of you there.
We arrived back from our second trip to the Pericles last Sunday, and had the most wonderful time again.. My partner even proposed to me in Sami !! what can i say it was perfect..
We hired a car from Avis and did a tour of the Island.. We found a perfect beach just past Skala, called Mounda,which was sandy and very safe for kids as you could walk out to sea for ages, and it was all sand under foot, unlike some of the other beaches which has tiny stones..
We found this year we ate at alot more different restaurants, ie Riviera which had an excellent choice for everyone, food was superb, but if your an eat and run person beware, you can't get the bill for love or money... The waiter George is very entertaining.. and a really nice Greek Guy.. We also tried The Mermaid, Adonis, and Captain Corelli's.. There really is something for everyone.
We wondered what it would be like since Nicos left running the bar.. but to our surprise Alex was a real tonic.. as said before a Greek guy, with a Canadian accent.. he treated all customers with special attention, and we made a real friend in him..
The Rep Linzi was also a great girl, who works very hard to ensure everyone is happy.. she has a wicked sense of humour and an even more wicked laugh..which im certain you will hear for your self ..It's not always easy for her.. so she has our greatest respect ..
All the other staff were also very friendly and extremely helpful too.
This year we had a family room which was excellent, and huge.. it had an ajoining door through to a seperate bedroom for the children.. it was clean and very quiet..
You either love or hate The Pericles.. we love it.. our advise is just go with the flow, yes there are farm animals, and dogs to be heard at night, but as said before this is Greece, and you are surrounded by acres of farmlands.. mountain views, and fantastic scenery.. Can't wait to get back there
