Fiona Aparthotel - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Tarina W  (October 12, 2004)         

The rooms are very basic, i.e. 2 forks, 2 knives, 2 plates etc, the shower curtain doesn't touch the floor so the water went everywhere and it was a bit manky. There was also a list on the back of the door of how much everything would be if it needed to be replaced or repaired from a cup to a patio door! We only had maid service once in the week (about the 4 day).

Pool area very clean and the pool was always welcoming after sunbathing all day. Lunchtime snacks were very tasty and the bar staff always had a smile for you. The local cats were very vocal when you were eating and one liked to cuddle up on your lap.

There is a road in front of the apartments which bikers race down at all hours of the night but after drinking a few pints you get your head down easier.

There's also a cockeral behind the apartments that hasn't got a clue what time it's supposed to crow! He was going off at 5am, 6am, 12noon, 6pm anytime he felt like it!

Good location for tavernas. There aren't any safety deposit boxes but no-one touched our stuff when we left it by the pool.

Wouldn't go back to the Fiona Aparthotel but it does serve as a good base for exploring the island. Next year Zante!

Astra Bar - (Bars in Lourdas)

We enjoyed Astra Music Bar as the bar man was always friendly and it was a good base before going for and coming back from a meal.

You needed to raise your voice over the music but he played everything from ballads to dance music.

Spiros Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Fantastic!

Spiros and his family were very welcoming and gave you plenty of time to look of the menu without hovering over you.

Prices were very reasonable and the portions were big.

For a three course meal for two with four bottles of pop it came to about 31 euros and when it was our last night he gave us a bottle of ouzo to go home with!

All in all the best restaurant we went to in Lourdas.
