First day at Lara Hotel was not the best experience. We went there for our second wedding anniversary, and booked the room with a partial sea view - which was very important for us. Instead, we got a room in a basement (you can't even call it a ground floor, as it is below the main reception...). We didn't accept... More

Went there early September so was not in peak season. Had an excellent time. The hotel always seemed to have at least 3 staff on duty who were excellent in their attentiveness and were always cheerful. The hotel itself had a patio with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The pool was kept sparkling clean by daily maintenance and changing of... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously, approx 8 years ago and it hasn't changed much, but we thought it was just as nice. The rooms were kept very clean,the breakfast was fine, and there was plenty of it whatever time you came down.It was what you normally get in Greece,bread,cheese, ham, eggs, yoghurt, cereal or fruit. The only downside... More

The outside of the hotel looks ok, but the inside needs money spent on it, including the rooms!! I agree with other reviews that the rooms are kept clean & towels are replaced nearly every day, which is great, so well done to the cleaners. We loved NIcky behind the bar, & the rest of the staff were very freindly... More

Well...the worst rooms ( and we are used to the greek hotel standards)...poor breakfast... and on top of all they actually moved our belongings to another room while we were on the beach without asking us.

This was our 3rd visit to lourdas but the first to this hotel. Check in was quick and straight forward and we were greeted with very friendly staff. We agree with some reviews that the rooms are a bit tired but they are cleaned every day, clean towels and bedding 3 times a week so what more do you want... More

This is old hotel but very clean and nice swimming pool There is a pool bar/evening and day. Staff friendly. Not far from here is the Dionysos resturant and then also resturants on the beach....

My husband and I just spent a lovely week at the Lara. Very basic accommodation but extremely clean and the staff there are wonderful. Probably one of the best locations for the beach, though still a short steep incline from the beach. Take your own travel kettle and cafetiere, etc as no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast was more... More

Rooms are more suitable for a youth hostil than a hotel. Terrible breakfast,, although the taverna across the street is great. The owner of the hotel is rediculously rude and lacking in social skills. Not recommended . Much better places close by.

Lourdas is a lovely place to spend a holiday in. Exceptional beach with good restaurants along the main road. Great food. Walk from Hotel Lara to the beach takes about 20 minutes depending upon pace of walk. Well worth the effort. Breakfasts at Hotel were good. Rooms a little on the basic side and bed not very comfortable but holiday... More
