“This place is a very worthy choice for holidays with friends!”
Reviewed 23 July 2011

We spent about 5 days in Poros, Lefkas. Poros is one of the best places to be with friends, just for have fun, staying all day long in the beach, playing cards, racquets, and meeting other people.

If you rent a car, you can go to other beaches, too. I recommend Kathisma and Egkremnus. Really nice beaches, but they are over-crowded..So, it’s more convenient to stay in Rouda’ there are not so many people, so you can enjoy the beach more!

Rouda Bay Hotel is a very nice hotel. The apartments are fully equipped, very clean and comfortable! The owners and the staff are friendly and kind, willing to help you at anytime!

I had a great time at Rouda Bay Hotel and at Rouda beach and I’m waiting for the next summer, so as to visit this place again!

We really enjoyed our holidays in this place! We stayed for 5 days on June and we’ve already asked for booking next year!

The hotel is well located in front of the beach, really clean and quiet! The staff is very kind and helpful!

We suggest to everyone go to Poros, Lefkas, and stay in Rouda Bay Hotel!

Don’t forget to eat at the restaurant in front of the hotel! The greek food is amazing, really tasteful!

We stayed at Rouda Bay Hotel for a week in June 2008 and had a fantastic holiday. Rouda Bay Appts & Studios are the cleanest and best maintained accomodation we have stayed in for the money. the owners, can not do enough to help, they are genuinley some of the friendliest people we have ever met.

The appartments are conveniently located, they are very comfortable, full equipped and exactly in front of the beautiful and clean beach of Poros, but far enough away to be peaceful.

The restaurants on the sea front are fantastic, we didn't have a bad meal throughout the holiday.

Against recommendation we hired a quad bike for the day and toured the whole island, we saw some absolutley beautiful places and views but Poros is definately the best place to stay.

We would recommend Rouda Bay to anyone and will definatley be going back ourselves!

We’ve just come back from a week at this small but very pretty hotel. Absolutely no complaints and would thoroughly recommend it – the hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms were clean, stylish, bright and comfortable, with excellent fitted kitchens and shaded, large balconies/terraces overlooking the pretty horseshoe-shaped gardens. The hotel is mainly used by Greeks and Italians – booking the hotel is a bit of a leap into the unknown, as they only accept bookings by fax, direct to the hotel, but they do respond and we had no problems. Also, no cards can be used for payment, cash only. At 60 Euro a night it’s amazingly good value though and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a small but good restaurant attached, as well as a small supermarket.
The village of Mikros Gialos (Poros) is a small and pretty with a handful of tavernas and cafes round the harbour and I agree with other comments that due to its position down a winding steep road, it’s probably not best placed as a base for seeing the rest of the island. But that windy road keeps out tour buses meaning Mikros Gialos has not become developed and remains sleepy, relaxing and very traditional, as well as very pretty. The beach is also very good – pebbly but great for swimming and crystal clear blue waters. It’s a great spot for a very relaxing beach holiday.
Ten out of ten for the hotel and Mikros Gialos!

We stayed at Rouda Bay hotel for a three nights during August, 2007. This newly-built hotel is quiet, comfortable, surrounded by a very beautiful garden. It is located opposite a small and quiet beach and it has a mini market and a restaurant. Our room was also amazing! Since it was late August the owner gave us a maisonette at the same price as a double room. It had a large, very well equipped kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor, as well as a couch that could be used as an extra bed. On the second floor, we had a large bedroom with a double bed and an extra small bedroom with two beds. The only drawback is its location, since Rouda is not one of the best beaches of Lefkada (there are some amazing beaches on the western part of the island) and also in order to get to the main road you need to own a car and follow a local road for a few kilometers. Since we did have a car, this was not a problem for us. Still, if you need to go out at night and have to drive all the way to another part of the island, this could be difficult. It is therefore suitable for people who prefer to go around during the day and return to a relaxing and very picturesque place in the evening. Overall, we had a wonderful and very comfortable stay in Rouda Bay and we surely recommend it.
