We initially chose Lefka based on location - it's out of the downtown fray, but not as far removed as the beachside area near Ammos hotel. We had friends in either direction, so the midpoint and placement on the main highway worked out well.
We also appreciated Evita's diligence and attention to detail during the booking process. Since we were booking remotely from the US, we appreciated her detailed emails and concern for the security of our financial information.
When we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice. We were treated like family from the moment of arrival. Anna, the bartender/hostess in the pool cabana (really - so much more than that) is the warmest and most welcoming host we've ever met in our travels. She was so friendly, welcoming and helpful, we absolutely loved her. She helped us with maps and directions, restaurant recommendations, and even taught us a few Greek words. Andreas and Evita also made us feel like family - we loved late night cocktails at the cabana and the daytime sounds of their adorable boys splashing in the pool. Andreas was even so kind as to give us a ride into town when we thought we'd miss an important date.
Our stay at Lefka was unexpectedly classic, something we'll never forget. We hope to be back a few more times!
