Beautiful setting; more than adequate rooms; excellent food; very good variety of activities. Lovely village with harbour in walking distance and although a bit of a hike back uphill it is easy to hire a taxi and save your legs. It has been written before and it's true- there are a LOT of steps here- but view them as part of your keep fit programme and they don't seem so bad.
The jewel in this crown is the staff in my view and, in particular, the watersports staff under the leadership of Vasilis.They seem to have endless patience and skill- getting young and old up on wakeboards and skis -giving folk a great sense of achievement and pride. Cant recommend this place enough.
Have to say the holiday wasn't helped by the ' Great Thomas Cook-Up.'; diverted on the way to Greece to deliver a plane part; delayed hours on the way back because of computer failure. The Captain said he was sure we understood. Got that wrong too. Ask Neilson for some tips on customer care.
