Flew out on 31 August from Gatwick for our second visit this summer (7th in total), stayed at the Plaza Palace in Anaxos as usual in their studios. My brother and his wife joined us again, no problems with their flight from Manchester.
Vas and Elle remain the perfect hosts, along with Nik behind the bar, excellent all round standards and nothing is too much trouble. It was great to see so many familiar faces, not just at the hotel but around the village as well.
Our style of holiday is relaxing during the day either at the pool or at the beach, usually at Palatinos, and enjoying a few drinks and a good meal, either in Anaxos or Petra. Highlights this year were Sarandos, Omega and Elli's in Anaxos and Reef and Women's Cooperative in Petra. We particularly enjoyed our sunset drinks in Jalouse and The Kantina.
We hired a car for a couple of days to the first time and enjoyed lunches in Skala Eressoss and Skala Sykamina as well as people watching coffees in Madamados and Sigri.
We have already booked twice for next year (21 June and 6 September, both for two weeks) and almost certainly we will go again early May. Got excellent prices booking in Thomas Cook high street shops, meaning we have lots to spend when we're there! Holidays in Anaxos meet our needs for destressing from busy times at home. The friendly welcome , first rate food and the overall ambience means it is a no-brainer when deciding upon holidays.
Hope to see some of you again next year!!!
