My husband and I spent a week at the Maria Anna Hotel in July this year. Its a very quiet place with only about 20 rooms I think. A lovely little bar The rooms were adequate, ours had a very small shower that you could just about stand in with a hand held shower. This is not a problem for us, but could be to others. But some people that we met there had better bathroom facilities, so maybe ask when you book. It is very hilly in Lourdas and the public transport is pretty much non existent, so best hire a car before you go as there is nothing to do otherwise. No roads are not congested so driving isnt an issue. Breakfast is eggs or cereal, if you dont like either, then best go to the supermarket! The best trip was the Saturday BBQ boat trip, it was excellent value for money and great fun. As for the island boat trip, terrible packed boat which you spend most of the day on with no sunbathing! It was horrible. The staff at the Maria Anna are very accomodating (especially Jenny) and really friendly. They have a greek night/BBQ once a week where you end up in the pool! good fun. Beaches are nice, and there is a bus that takes you back and forth if you cant walk up hill! All in all a great stay, met a great bunch of people and the hotel is first class for the money.
