We were a bit nervous about staying in the Bel Mare after reading the negative reviews and because we'd booked last minute. However, the warm friendly welcome (from the infamous Nikos), clean room and lovely poolside area soon put our minds at ease! We can't remember a week when we've laughed so much and this was mainly due to the lovely people we met. Hellas mini golf is a MUST the couple that run it are so sweet, and if you get to the weekly finals you'll get your picture in the paper :) The sunseekers cruise, run by Perikles and Nikos (no.2), is also recommended - ask for some raki :)
There are lots of lovely bars and restaurants nearby. The local Taverna Perikles is one of our favourites as is Valentinas in Lardos - ask for Petros the waiter - but watch out for the EVIL cat!! Nearby Yammas bar, run by George (from Cambuslang, aherm!!) is also worth a visit!
Overall, the Bel Mare is what you make it. For the price you pay it's good value for money and in a good location. Although Nikos and Aggis don't know everything they're more than willing to ask their dad :) We went hoping for fun in the sun...and that's exactly what we had!!!
