Beautiful setting, lovely facilities including watersports, tennis etc - all of which we had no problem using and staff managed very professionally and with safety paramount. Brilliant trips out led by the wonderful Shelia - for me personally they were the high spot of the holiday - particularly the sunset monastery walk. Our accommodation (The Blue House Apartments) was clean and very close - ideal for us as we didn't want to keep getting in the car. Some people had massive villas with beautiful pools but you are paying to use the Peligoni beach club anyway so why have a beautiful pool at your villa too! Other good villas close by seemed to be Emerald and Mimis. Food at club mixed - but perfectly adequate. Social mix was fine - we had some great chats with lots of different sorts of people but it is a social place so if you prefer your holidays alone this is not the place for you.
Only problems for us were i) lack of advertised Pilates. Fitness teacher is lovely but majors on body pump and muscle building - not for me when I'm on holiday but others may think otherwise. Aquarobics in pool was good. And ii) Tony's Bar. This is a bar completely independent from Peligoni about 5 mins walk away which serves alcohol to underage kids. Needless to say they think that's great. From age 13 upwards they quickly find out about it and will nag you to death to allow them to go after dinner (which means they get there about 10.30 earliest) and want to stay until 12, 1, 2am. If you don't mind this then it's not a problem. If you worry about your children's livers and personal safety walking home then you will have massive family arguments and have to stay up until the agreed collection time to bring them back. If you are in a villa that is not in walking distance then you won't be drinking much - though they will. Peligoni knows about the problem and is thinking of creative solutions to try and solve it - like having a mildly supervised teenage hangout in the evenings with good music away from the parents on the Peligoni site. Time will tell.
