“A LITTLE GEM”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

On arriving the town appeared very busy, after all it was a Sunday during the Greek holiday season, and my heart sunk. However around the corner was a lovely secluded, tranquil oasis, namely this hotel. This hotel is not in Parga itself but that is a huge advantage. You are right on the beautiful Valtos beach which is gorgeous and the hotel is at the prettier end; if it is a beach holiday you want, it is hard to improve on. The hotel is made up of a collection of small dwellings, like bungalows, and double storey buildings with upper and lower rooms. Stunning gardens to boot. I think it is one of the best beds and pillows we have ever slept on in Greece and also quiet and efficient non complicated air conditioning, brilliant! Our room was away from the beach and pools which were always busy with children so that was great for us. Breakfast was also more varied than in many other Greek hotels of this standard, with no horrid synthetic orange juice. Parga is easily accessible by water taxi, ordinary taxi or a steep walk up to the castle and over the hill. However there are a couple of nice eateries in Valtos. All in all a most enjoyable beach holiday with some lovely eating experiences in the evenings in very picturesque surroundings. We would certainly return one day.

Stayed with small kids in July. Valentina fantastic - lovely girl. Lovely accommodation right on the beach - perfect for young kids. Beautiful setting and Parga is fantastic.

However, staff at breakfast dreadful. Miserable looking and almost impossible to get a coffee (and when you do you wish you hadn't - it's awful!). One of the waiters was particularly gormless - I really don't think he'd had any training at all.

Breakfast stops at 10am which is far too early - we are on holiday! That means that there is a rush at 9.50am and it's hard to get a table and coffee (even harder!). Breakfast so so - lovely fresh bread, nice yoghurt (the proper greek stuff) and nice cake, however, eggs congealed and cold, bacon not cooked and fruit not great in variety. Staff in general in the restaurant were very hit and miss. Food also hit and miss - lovely sea bass, salmon overcooked, bad burger etc. This was the only place we visited in Greece where we had to pay for bread with our meal! Very slow service - have to ask many times to order. A pity as the restaurant has a beautiful setting right on the beach.

Lobby STINKS of smoke which makes it very unpleasant.

The beach umbrella man is aggressive and rude. He does not need to intimidate people.

Overall however, it's a great place with lovely rooms in a beautiful setting. Just needs some tweaking to make it excellent.

Returned from our second visit to the Parga Beach Hotel on Sunday 21st July. Once again we were delighted with this hotel it really is lovely and will keep returning.

Nothing to have a moan about everything staff, location, grounds and rooms were the best.

Thank you to Valentina for her help, what a lovely girl.

Room 151 is really nice.

Room Tip: 151 and 147 good location in the grounds

The hotel isn't in Parga but around the bay in Valtos Beach. This in itself isn't a real problem as if you want to go into town at night there are water taxis at 2 Euro per person or a traditional taxi for 5 Euro. I personally would prefer to stay at Valtos as the beach is far larger and more sandy than in Parga town. With regard to the hotel there are some real positives: the hotel is a collection of low rise bungalows which are kept spotlessly clean, the gardens are magnificent, the hotel is only a few yards from the beach, the room is equipped to a high standard (air-conditioning as standard) and the front of house staff, the maids and the gardener are all so friendly. The downsides for me were that there are only two very small pools that seem to be exclusively inhabited by small children, some of the breakfast waiting staff have mastered the art of wandering around with coffee pots whilst ignoring guests attempts to attract their attention to get a coffee, the bar prices are ridiculously expensive (5.50 Euros for a pint on the beach!), the hot food at breakfast was invariably overcooked (sausages and eggs) or nearly raw (the bacon), the one meal we ate (other than breakfast) was missing some of the advertised ingredients (funnily enough the more expensive ones) and, as non-smokers, we found it impossible to enjoy the beautiful lobby because of an overpowering smell of state tobacco smoke. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would not wish to put other people off from going but with some relatively minor changes our rating would have been 'excellent' rather than 'very good'.

Room Tip: Book direct rather than through a travel agent and insist on one of the bungalows near the beach (bu...

While we have made several trips to Greece over the years, this was the first time that didn't revolve around island hopping on a sail boat or visiting my sister in the Athens area. Following a short (2 hr) flight from Innsbruck, we landed in Preveza. The agent we used to book the trip provided a coach transfer to Parga (approx. 65 km), but in hindsight we should have leased a car from the airport instead of hiring one in Parga. This is because you are going to want a car in order to fully enjoy the attractions of the area and if you take the bus you're going to spend at least an extra hour (going and coming) from Preveza while the vacationers are delivered and collected from their respective accommodations. What a relief it was to finally arrive at the hotel and from the moment we checked-in to check-out a week later, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay!

Our bungalow was well appointed and spacious. All of the amenities you would expect from a 4 star hotel were provided. Wifi, safe, flat screen TVs, coffee machine, frig, etc.. There is even a scale in the bathroom so that you can monitor how much weight you gain from the ridiculously large portions of food that are served everywhere you eat. The beach is wonderful with clear blue water and comfortable lounging and the staff are extremely courteous. While the town of Parga is only a short 15 minute walk down the beach from the hotel, there's also a water taxi that you can take from the hotel to the harbor for only 2 Euros. A conventional taxi is only 5 Euros. Once you're in town, you will find a traditional Greek environment literally hundreds of shops, restaurants, boutiques and bars. Prices were excellent - compared to western Europe.

I'm sure you could be happy if you never left the premises of the hotel, but it would be a shame to miss all of the sight seeing opportunities the area offers. Our favorite was the day spent on the Acheron River (mythical River Styx). It is truly one of the most naturally beautiful places we've ever been. I highly recommend the Parga Beach Resort Hotel to couples and families alike!
