I have just returned from a fabulous week at this hotel. Being a lone traveller it could not have been better. Good location, warm welcome from the whole family on arrival, the spacious room overlooking Atherinos, pool, lovely food, the list is endless. Yes, the beds were a little hard but no worse than anywhere else I have stayed in Greece and I slept like a baby.There were many 'returners' staying, they were a great source of information, very helpful and great company.This has to be the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.As I was travelling independently I emailed George a few weeks before and he sorted out all my taxi and water transfers. Coming home, Dimitri dropped me at the harbour where I hopped on the ferry to Nidri, once there I was collected by a taxi organised by George and taken to the airport.
Katomeri is a delightful place, quiet and peaceful.The locals are charming and friendly.
Try the greek night at the taverna up the road run by George and Ellena. The night I went there were many British people in there enjoying it.But don't expect a professional show put on for tourists.It is every Friday and done by local people for the locals.Victor's vocals are a treat.George and Ellena are a lovely couple.
Walk on further to the outskirts of the village at the top. Set on it's own you will find the Precious Club Cafe. This is a relatively new bar run by a great young guy who has put a lot of work into starting this up.Open all day for coffee, drinks, cake etc and most of the night It has a lovely outdoor seating area, just the place to drink an Ouzo under the stars and think about nothing. Indoors is a nicely set out bar area with lots of space and a good atmosphere. He also has a super sound system with a good variety of decent music.
The port of Vathi down the hill is a charming place with lovely tavernas. Just spend time sitting over a coffee or drink watching the yachts.
Meganisi has a limited bus service and one taxi so be prepared to walk.The majority of the island is walkable, just amble along and take in the beautiful scenery, This is Greece at its most stunning and traditional.
As a lone traveller I felt very safe on the island. The Hotel Meganissi is a very special place run by very special people who work exceptionally hard to provide such a high standard. It is exceptional and I will definately be a 'returner'.
