We have just come back from 2 weeks in Nidri, staying at the Palmyra in a self catering apartment, and we have nothing but praise for this place.
The hotel is in a great location, only a couple of minutes walk from the beach, and from our 5th floor room we had some brilliant views of the mountains and the sea.
The room was spacious, with lots of wardrobe space and the bathroom had a proper shower screen ( a first for us, in our many visits to greece).
The rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day, and the hotel was really clean throughout, including the pool area. The pool area has a large garden, with some great flowers and trees and is very pretty with lots of sun-beds and a pool bar.
Available at the bar are all sorts of drinks from frappes and soft drinks, up to cocktails (which are a bargain 4 euros at happy hour) and also lots of snacks and meals eg omelettes, burgers, sandwiches all freshly made and a good price.
The owners Savvas & Viki really made this trip for us though. You couldnt ask to meet a nicer couple, and they went out of their way to be helpful to us and to all other guests. Such a lovely family and they take great care in their hotel.
They can provide you with information on where to go and what to see in Nidri and Lefkada, and gave us some great ideas.
Nidri itself was quiet in May but we like this anyway. The weather was a bit hit and miss but the cooler days allowed us to hire a bike and cycle round to the church at Geni and to the Waterfalls (both recommended). There is enough to see and do around Nidri, and the surrounding areas (good bus service to Lefkada town) to occupy anyone. Lots of good tavernas on the front and on the road out of Nidri. And the ferry to Meganisi is a must (try the 12.15 ferry to Spilia and then get the mini-bus to Vathy - straight from the port - and take the 14.30 ferry back to Nidri from Vathy - very good experience).
All in all the best holiday we have had.
