Another excellent holiday at Cosmos Beach Club. Stelios and his wife Vassilliki, along with the Neilson team, are the perfect hosts and all the recent improvements at the hotel (gorgeous new pool-side seating area, loungers on the beach etc) mean that it gets better and better.
The standard of food at lunchtime and evening is excellent - and bar prices are very reasonable, having hardly increased in 4 years despite the government tax impositions.
Kit was new and plentiful and the beach team proactively helped to bring kit in from the water. Class sizes were small and provided an excellent standard of tuition.
The bike guides were less experienced than in the past but were happy to take guidance from long-standing guests on routes with which they weren't familiar. Would recommend taking elbow/knee pads if you're planning to do a lot of off-road biking as the single-track seemed to claim a fair few victims this time.
The only downside is that Preveza airport really isn't equipped for the number of fights at departure so be prepared for long queues, often outside in the midday sun. There's a small bar landslide where chilled water was only 50c a bottle and snacks are available. If you do manage to check in early, go to the taverna across the road rather than going through to departures - a lovely way to end the holiday.
