“Beautiful”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

The apartments are located in Nikiana bay, literally one step from a small (for Lefkada standards) and beautiful beach.
Nikiana is a quiet place (very important if you have family) but very close to Nidri and Lefkada City (just 6-7 km) in case you want night life and the famous western beaches of the island (Porto Katsiki, Egremnoi etc) just a half hour drive.
The facilities are great with a swimming pool. showers and tavern close to each other. The rooms are very clean with and have a large balcony with view to the bay.
There are also instructors for all kind of watersports (wind surfing, sailing etc) so if you want to have some lessons in these you'll love it there (the hotel has all the gear and equipment you'll ever need)
The stuff is very kind and helpful.
As a bottom line, we had 5 great days there and next time we'll visit Lefkada, Nikiana Beach will be our choice.

We spent a week here for the second part of our honeymoon. We found a bottle of fizzy wine in the fridge. The hotel is a stone's throw from the beach: the accommodation is quite basic but more than adequate if you're out on the water most of the day- there is air conditioning, fridge, hot running water and it's very clean.
We signed up for a windsurfing course and a dinghy sailing course. We could not fault the staff: they struck the balance perfectly between fun and professional. It's a small place (about 25 rooms) so the staff get to know you quickly, and it's a very relaxed safe atmosphere; after a few days you'll recognise most other guests and know half of them by name. We received excellent tuition on and off the water, and we always felt safe. It's a wonderful thing to wander along the beach, choose a boat, and sail off in it a minute later.
The taverna serves traditional Greek food at reasonable prices, and there is a supermarket a couple of minutes' walk away so we had lunch on our balcony some days. The breakfast is fine, and you can set up a tab for food and drinks to be paid- cash only- at the end of the stay.
Inevitably the centre attracts a lot of families during the school holidays. Nikiana itself is not the most picturesque village but there is a bus stop for buses into Lefkada town, a few shops, and a couple of good restaurants within 5 minutes' walk.
We highly recommend this hotel if you want an active yet relaxing holiday based around watersports. It's also very good value, especially when compared to similar set ups like Neilson and Sun Sail, and just as good.

Best holiday ever. The Seafarer Beach set up at the Nikiana is a little gem. Pleasant family accommodation with a double and single room and separate bunk room, fridge, kettle and air conditioning was spot on. Dated bathrooms provided hot water all day long which although not the prettiest, did the job. Thassos and his family could not be more welcoming, even preparing and cooking the little fishes caught with great excitement by the children on the rocks earlier in the day. Plenty of boats to play with on the beach and the Seafarer staff were fun, worked hard and were extremely helpful in ensuring we all maximised our sailing experiences. The banquet prepared on Saturday night was fantastic and Eleni makes the best mousakka I have ever tasted. Although it's nice to get out into the town, Eleni and Tassos serve delicious Greek food at good prices. We hired a motor boat for the day to explore the islands off Nydri which was idyllic. Hire a car for a day or so and get into the mountains to find working wells, unspoilt villages and some amazing views. If your idea of heaven is a perfectly groomed big resort offering 24 hour entertainment this is not for you. If you prefer a little home made charm, Nikiana is the best there is.

Room Tip: Our family room was at the back of the hotel so we missed out on the amazing views offered by the ot...

What a wonderful family!! Thassos and his extended family, couldn't do enough for us, I felt they practically adopted us!!!
The rooms were large, a double and a single bed, with a large fridge, air con, and a super large balcony with views to die for.They are simply furnished, but scruplessly clean.
The ensuite shower room is tiny, be prepared to have your feet in the shower tray while sitting on the loo; we christened ours "the swamp."
Recommend rooms 9,10,11 on the second floor, as they have large balconies and spectacular views.
The location is fantastic, right on the pebble beach & the sea is azure blue and crystal clear.
There is a small fresh water pool, which is very refreshing.
The food is well cooked and presented and very reasonable.
The local bus, cheap and reliable, stops on the main road, and in Nidri there are numerous supermarkets, tourists shops and tavernas.There is also an excellent and reasonably priced Chinese.
Numerous boat trips are available, I recommend, the Pirate Boat and the Nidri Star. There is also a very cheap ferry to Megannesi.
The wind was very variable, but we managed to sail for several hours most days. Wished the sailing area was a little larger, and that they had a few more lasers.
All in all a fantastic holiday and I thoroughly recommend Lefkas as a holiday destination!

Room Tip: Rooms 9,10,11 for the balcony and views

Spent a week at Nikiana Beach 05/2012, as part of a beach and sailing holiday. Good basic accommodation with AC. Great simple food in the associated taverna. Excellent very friendly and helpful staff in this family run mini complex with pool, taverna and rooms right on the beach. Who needs a pool?

Thanks, Tassos and family.
We'll be back with more Marmite to swap for chipero!

Couldn't have asked for more..
-great staff- hotel staff and Seafarer Staff.
-rooms are great size, couldn't ask for more.
-Local area is nice, with the amazing Pane e Vino Restaurant in Nikiana. Make sure you go!

Seafarer provided a great holiday, their staff are a credit to the company. Helpful, friendly, will always go the extra mile.

We stayed in Nikiana Club for 10 days last April. The room was basic but comfortable with a TV, ensuite shower/toilet & balcony, and the view was beautiful across the calm waters between Lefkada and the mainland. The owners are very friendly and helpful - Elena and her son speak very good English. Food was good - wholesome, simple and good value. I'm mostly vegetarian but there were still plenty of options (not always true in Mediterranean hotels). Wasn't really swimming weather when we were there but the beach looked ideal for it, quite quiet and shared with a few other hotels. We were lucky to have a car (necessary in my opinion) so we could make the short drive to Lefkas, or to the wonderful island beaches. Nikiana is just a small village really so you need wheels to get around and see the rest of the island.

Room Tip: the sea-view rooms are worth it
