This picture was taken from my bedroom window in our apartment.
 
We absolutely loved it here. I'm 22 and i went with my parents and younger brother and sister 19 and 16, all of us had something to do, on camp and out and about on the island. The apartments are basic 2 rooms a sofa bed table and chairs and a kitchen area and bathroom but plenty enough for the average family.
The pool and pool bar were brilliant with Betty and Artor behind the bar, if you go try betty's ham and cheese omlettes theyre lovely. A wide variety of drinks, soft and alcoholic including cocktails are available throughout the day and the views are spectacular all around the complex with a special seating area with benches and tables at the best spot.
 
Although the walk up and down the hill is a task it is not a death defying stunt so long as you are clever and chose not to do it in the mid day sun and even if you do the taxi fares are really cheap at just 5Euros up the hill or into argostoli. And the views from the hill are stunning along with little houses and a cute little church set into the hill side.
 
There are plenty of trips to go on although i would suggest hiring a car or scooter and arranging most of them yourself to actually see what you want to see and have just the right amount of time for you. One trip i would highly recommend doing through a guide is the glass bottom boat trip to see the dolphins and turtles and have a beach bbq and swimming too.
 
If you want a nice restaurant i would recomend zorbas particularly on a meze night, a guy named christos dances with two tables on his mouth, and sirtaki's meze on a wednesday is really really good. A restaurant bar called so....simple is one of my favourite places too but mainly on the dancing bar side as i found the food in the restaurant ok but not great, they have a brilliant live singer on the restaurant side though (either on a thursday or friday i forget which) On a bad note I would have to say avoid mystic gusto, i went twice once as a group of young people out for a meal and with my family and both times the staff seemed more interested in themselves and the food was poor compared to everywhere else we tried and we tried pretty much all the eateries in Lassi between the 9 of us.
 
Top marks for the holiday though and a group of us have already booked to go again next year.
