“A little gem”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Just arrived back from Demetra Studios in Nidri, Lefkadas.
On arrival we were we warmly welcomed. We were allocated room 12. Ground floor opening onto the pool. The room was just right for us. Yes you could hear the music from the bar but if you talk to Tricky the manager of the bar she tries very hard to make sure all of the guests are happy.
Ghianni and Emma were very friendly and helpful when working the bar.
We spent a lazy week sitting by the pool soaking up the sun.
The staff were all friendly and made you feel welcome.
The apartment was cleaned every other day. The cleaner was discreet and pleasant.
We spent our evenings on the harbour watching the boats and the people.
We enjoyed visiting The Ikaros Cafe for coffee, cafe Di Paris for a drink in the evening. George's for the best gyros with Mythos and Ola Kala for the food and the welcoming and fun atmosphere.
The only trip we made was on foot to the waterfalls. This was well worth the walk.
This was our first visit and we would be very happy to visit Demetra again. It fulfilled everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Always discuss any issues the staff bend over backwards to help.

We stayed at the Demetra Studios towards the end of May and had a fantastic week. We were lucky enough to get a great room at the front with Wonderful views of the whole bay - amazing. Could have just sat on the balcony for the whole week. The pool bar, run by Trickey, Eva and John is brilliant, great people offering great service and make you really feel at home. Will definitely be back. Wherever you stay in Nidri, pop into the Rouge Booze Bar at the DEMETRA for a lovely evening. Wanda and Paul

Myself and a girlfriend wanted a cheap week away. We searched for holidays with Olympic Holidays and found a few great deals.

As we haven't travelled much in Greece we researched them on TripAdvisor and the reviews for the Demetra read the best.

We certainly wasn't disappointed, it does what it says on the tin! Basic, clean, friendly staff, great location, lovely pool and bar... What more could you ask for?!

Can't really fault the place, clean apartment with a fantastic view from the balcony ( room 15 ), resort a bit quiet on the night life but you could always rely on the bar girls Tricky & Eva, willing to keep the bar open until the last man was standing ! Walk outside the pool area and the bars, shops and a great variety of restaurants, all waiting ! Boat trip well worth the money but be prepared for a long day ! Had a great time and would certainly recommend as long as you don't want all night raves !

We spent a week in these studios. Room 20 to be precise, a perfect view over the bay of Nidri and two yes two private balconies. One being under cover.
The room was cleaned every day and sheets and towels replaced more than enough.
A few good nights were had by the pool bar, its run by "Tricky" as she likes to be called.
She is great she`s nuts but she is nice nuts. Mad as a hatter but absolutely lovely and so very welcoming.
On to the room itself, as wirh most budget Greek places its quite basic but everything worked and the owners were very friendly albeit with very limited english.
You can also expect the service of a first class rep in Phil. Very knowledgable on the whole of Lefkas and more than willing to help. Many thanks Phil.( see you in the future)

Room Tip: Room 20 is considered by all to be the best room for views, and the two balconies are a bonus.

never been to greece before and looking at the comments was a bit wary on what to expect. These apartments are basic & clean - we were inside of this complex and had mountain views - some apartments had view to main street and some had pool view which was really a marina view as only small apartments but great location, harbour one side & main street the other, i have never been anywhere where there 5 bakeries - supermarket next door is not dear either - we were told to go to the big suprmarket right down the high street but for water & small bits why bother to carry stuff!! Pool area small but you walk out and your right on the marina eva & tricky are lovely - eva is a gem who works at the bar it was raining for first 3 days we arrived and eva ordered food in for us and got her boyfriend to deliver - . Lovely Greek couple who run the apartments, if you haven't got something extra pillows, etc ask - they cannot speak english but they do understand you and make you feel very welcome.

Room Tip: dont pay for an apartment - other couple with us paid the extra and the only difference was they had...

Stayed her for 2 weeks in August this year. group of 6 so we had 3 rooms. The rooms are what you would expect from Greece but the balcony is the smallest I have ever had. The couple who run the hotel do not speak any English so it is difficult to communicate but they do try and are quite receptive if you try to speak to them in Greece.

The pool are was also too small for us and as the bar did not open until around 2pm we didn't go around the pool hardly at all. We did use Yannis bar and pool which was a few hotels up and wher I would book if I returned.

Air conditioning and safety box was your usual price and the safety box is a neccessity as our friends daughter had her phone stolen from the room and my daughter had new nail varnishes stolen also. I cannot say who could have gained access but we did use to find the staff bunch of keys all over the place so to be honest any opportunist could have done it. So my advice is get a safety box and lock everything away when not in the room.

Nidri is a beautiful place and I have been missing the glorious and dramatic views that we were privi to. Everywhere you look is a beautiful scene and I feel very lucky to have visited.

We took the sea trip on MS Cristina for 45 e each. Sounds a lot but the trip was absolutely worth it and the buffet lunch was delicious too. I would go again so you can see it is recommended.

Most of the restaurants offer fabulous foods. Mama mia gave a good greek night and one gives out free desserts and coffees at the end of the evening ( the name escapes me but it is towards the end of the strip, farthest away from demitri).

All in all we loved this island (that isn't really an island). The beaches on the west coast were amazing and if you hire a car go and see them for yourselves.

We will be back one day for sure but will stay at the Yiannis bar as the pool area more what we expect.

Room Tip: Room 15 had a gorgeous view over the water. Room 12 right behind bar and any view blocked by bar. M...
