The Hotel Location is suitable for those who like walking and prefer to be a bit out of the centre. The beaches are a long walk though 30 minutes plus and all up hill on the way back. Breathtaking views from the south facing balconies though. The maid and breakfastlady was nice although wait until she offers you another cup of coffee rather than asking for one. Pool was cloudy. The manager wore a Leeds Utd shirt one day and a Man Utd shirt the next, both premier league sh*te and no consistency. I think he should wear an Olympiakos or some other Greek team shirt. Also single women beware unless you like overpowering attention from Greek men. Overall the hotel is OK if you just want somewhere to crash and like to go out a lot. If you don't like knowing everything about everyone and them knowing everything about you don't hang around the bar too much. Lourdas itself is lovely, friendly go to Casa Del Blue and the Muses Cocktail Bar, also hire a car and drive around, go to Rombola Winery interesting and free samples.
The waiter and owner was very welcoming, the food was great, lovely calamari and sole was really tasty. Very reasonable prices. The owner invited us in later for a free drink just as we were passing. You might spot the owner collecting the sunbed money on the beach, Lourdas is one of those places where one person does three jobs. One tip though don't talk about how everything costs so much in England and how English people really aren't that well off, the Greeks don't like it...they like to think England is some sort of paradise...little do they know!
