“great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We spent 4 nights at Avra hotel. Located in Lygia, 5 minutes ddriving distance from lefkada city, with mini market and gas station near by. The hotel owners and stuff were very friendly and eager to help and answer every question we had about lefkada island. They even helped us with a car problem we had the last day.
The room was cousy with a refrigarator, t.v, a small.kitchen,air condition, and a big balcony. Cleaning service everyday.
Breakfast was also very nice,and included in the price of the room.
Definetely will be our first choice to stay when we visit lefkada again!

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful hotel. It is very quiet but located near to shopping facilities. The garden is well-kept and a good place to relax. Very good restaurants and the little harbour are in walking distance. Our room was very cosy and clean with a large balcony. Very exceptional is the hospitality of the owners. They are taking care of everything and are very friendly and helpful. Lygia itself is a good choice if you like to stay off the beaten track. By the way, the evening light at the sea is very lovely.

Spent three nights on Lefakada as a short break from our own property in Kefalonia, booked only two weeks before our visit, on Booking.com. Not knowing the resort it took us a while to find the hotel, down a small road in a wonderfully peaceful part of Lygia. Set in pretty gardens, with free WiFi in the reception, the hotel was perfect for our needs. The bedroom was spacious enough, a double bed and a single bed, small kitchen area (not that we intended cooking!!) and a fridge (ideal for our juices and Sprite). The shower room was good, plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean (as was the whole room). The balcony was big enough, complete with sun canopy, the room also had very efficient A/C included in the price.
Breakfast was continental, good choice of bread, pastries, eggs, ham, cheese, juice, fresh coffee and fresh fruit, eaten in the garden, lovely.
The best thing about this hotel was the staff, the owners daughters I believe, so friendly and helpful, an asset to the establishment. We would have no hesitation in returning for another stay, in fact we probably will in the not too distant future as accessingthe island from Kefalonia is very easy via the ferry from Fiskardo to Vassiliki.

Very nice, cousy little hotel. The owners and hotel stuff were more than polite and kind. We were for the first time in Lefkada, and we get from them, all info about everything we wanted to see. The cleanliness of the room was great ( bed linen and towels are changed in three days ). We were in the room minimum time (all day we were at the beaches), so at the evening we only wanted a nice terrace, and we had that. We extended ouar stay from 10 to 14 days, we recommend (we were over venere.com)

We booked in advance 8 nights in double room for this hotel with a deposit of more than 100 eur. At the arrival we found a very nice reception (clean & good taste) but the room was verry dissapointing. The kichinette and the bathroom were very old and the perception was that is dirty (for example the refrigerator was 10 years old and not cleaned for a long time). The reply from the stuff when I asked why is this huge difference between reception and room was that the government didn't gave them money for this. In conclusion we decided to leave and to find another place. They didn't want to gave us the passport if we are not paying 50% of the rest of the nights (they said that this is the law in Greece). We refused saying that the deposit is enough to cover only one night but they threat us that will call the police. In the end we paid for one night 173 eur and found after that a beautiful studio, verry classy, clean and spacious with 325 eur per 7 nights.
We asked many Greek people after this experience abou this regulation (Greek law) but all of them were saying that is not true.
For sure we will not come back and I will not recommend to anyone!
Bad experience!
