After missing a flight and dealing with Ryanairs' incredibly poor customer service it was a huge relief to finally arrive and be welcomed by the charming hospitable friendly Andreas at Lefka. He and his wife Evita run a clean and friendly atmosphered place, and are both very good chefs and will happily arrange things for you.
Sarah who manages in the day is also lovely and very helpful. The weather was fantastic, the pool was so inviting (my eldest 4yrs, spent hours splashing around), and there are beaches nearby to break up the day. There is a very good bus service running to the old town if you want to explore, do a boat trip etc, shop etc. If you need to cook there is a nearby supermarket but we didn't as much as we thought we would as we liked to eat at Lefka. He can cook some mean pork and lamb chops (though the menu is varied) with authentic marinading (herbs, oil salt - lemon on the side ;) - really delicious. A great place all round, good for families and couples. I have no surprise seeing the reviews below that many visitors return and we would love to come back.
