This hotel, Louros Beach is very pretty to look at. All the bushes are done in topiary, shaped in to turtles and Disney characters with a hugh wooden bridge going over the pool. It also has a whirl pool and spa centre. The rooms are spacious enough although we had to pay £25 per week for air-con which I'm convinced they put on hot before we arrived at night as that was the only night the room was hot but being typical Brits, we purchased the aircon along with the safe on arrival. The hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the main centre but only a minutes walk away from the beach. Outside the hotel are taxis and also horse drawn carriages for hire. The main problem with this hotel is the breakfast arrangements. Everything is squashed on small tables and not allowing room for the large trays so very difficult to get round. Also although I prefer continental breakfast, the bread was hard and tasteless so we spent more time eating at the snack bar Time Out in Kalamaki which do an excellent breakfast, proper bacon and no snotty eggys!!!
