This was our 2nd year running at Kekatos and we had a fabulous time. The apartments are simple & basic but very clean. The maid, despite having limited English, was very helpful and our towels got changed regularly. The kitchen is pretty well equipped but there are only 2 hob rings & a microwave so cooking possibilities are a bit limited. We're not really 'pool people' so can't really comment on that.
Clair, our rep, was also very helpful and did all she could she could to make our holiday as enjoyable as possible. We did the Ithica tour which we would highly recommend despite the 6.30am start! If you do this tour, take swimming costumes as you get the chance to swim off the boat.
Lourdas is a very quiet, peaceful resort with 2 mini markets for all your basics. There are 3 excellent bars - Bar Seven, Sunset (formerly Dimitri's) and Waikiki - all very customer friendly and highly recommended. Didn't try Lovides. Our favourite taverna was Lourdas Mare (Mezedakia). Looks basic, but does the best food in Lourdas & has a lovely waiter and waitress. Try the cheesecake - amazing! Blue Sea is also very good. Not crazy about Climatis, the staff are very unwelcoming & the food is average. Lorraine's Magic Hill is quite popular but we prefer Lourdas Mare.
The beach is a blue flag beach and is very clean. There is a lifeguard & also WC facilities. 2 sunbeds and a sun shade can be hired for 5 euros a day (or part of a day).
Overall, a smashing place to stay if you want somewhere very quiet and chilled out. We'll definitely be back.
