We spent one week at Avithos Resort. A totally relaxing and enjoyable experience. Excellent, friendly team at the hotel. Good-sized pool that never felt over-crowded. A quiet resort that is ideal for couples and families. It's on the outskirts of the local village Svoronata and a short 5 min walk to one restaurant, or a further 10 mins to another on Avithos Beach. - Fantastic fresh food at the Avithos Beach Restaurant (Calamari starter!). For the week that we were there, we hired a car for three days (via the hotel reception) and it cost €90 in total. Recommend trips to Antisamos beach (where Capt Corelli was filmed), Myrtos beach (prob 2nd most famous and beautiful beach in Europe), Yia Efisimia (to hire a 20hp boat and travel up the eastern coastline stopping at private beaches along the way, €70 for the day). Also, Assos is a great trip and has a nice bay as well as seeing the turtles in Argostoli harbour between 9am and 12pm.
The hotel is family-run and nothing is too much trouble. They helped us plan our trips out and were more than happy to recommend good places to eat around the island - hence the detailed description above! They even offer a quick lift to a local restaurant and pick-up if necessary. Also, the hotel is only a 15mins (€15) taxi journey from the airport.
Overall, a relaxing, enjoyable and genuinely hospitable experience... Would return again!
