Just spent a week at club Vass and to be honest it was the best holiday I've ever had.
With regard to the windsurfing, it is superb, light onshore in the morning for learning new moves and a predictable consistent cross shore in the afternoon for blasting, practicing. The kit is unbelievable - its like a candy shop!! - pre rigged sails - loads of boards and advice on set up etc (also SUP's kayaks and mountain bikes !!) - and all handily located on racks between the hotel and the warm clean sea!! There is a really good rescue and recovery service is you find yourself on the way to Kefalonia or just too tired to get yourself back to shore!
The instruction is brilliant for all levels, from kids to experts - you can easily find yourself being taught by a top ranked PWA competitor...
As for the hotel - I loved it, yes it is quite basic but it is comfortable, everything works, the shower was good, the air conditioning was cool and quiet, the fridge keeps stuff cool and the double glazing keeps any noise out. To be honest after a days windsurfing - it is all you need.
There is a youthful vibe to the place, but plenty of us oldies too - a lovely balance actually, and it is very inclusive with events to suit everyone including welcome meal and BBQ which were really well considered and excellent fun.
Whilst the staff are young and all look like Abercrombie and Fitch Models, they do really care and are absolutely lovely - special mention should go to the manager Upton, who always smiles and nothing is too much trouble, the bar staff were fab too.
We didn't have our daughter with us, but if we had she would have been superbly catered for by the kids club staff who must be the most enthusiastic and inventive around - you could tell the kids just worshipped the staff and were having a brilliant time.
Food is pretty basic but decent value and available throughout the day - there is a card system so you aren't rumaging around for cash
Things to look out for:
1) Preveza airport is a military airport and whilst it has facilities, they are basic so pray you aren't delayed as we were.
2) Unless you are super fit - think about having a rest day off the resort - maybe hire a boat from Nidri and potter round the islands, which is a glorious way to spend a day - about 80 euros inc fuel.
