We stayed at the Almyrida Beach at the end of September for 10 days. We have now booked to return in late June 2014 for a week followed by a week up in the mountains just to experience a bit of 'real' Greece.
The hotel is beautifully clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. My only comment is that I personally found the evening food a little repetative, and I struggled a bit so we went out to eat for several nights. This however is mainly down to me, I am a bit picky and had extensive dental surgery in the summer which meant I was struggling to eat properly. Everyone else on the half-board option seemed quite happy with the food.
Almyrida itself is a lovely resort - if you turn right along the sea front from the hotel the beach gets better and better and the sunbeds and an umbrella were reasonably priced at 5E for 2 beds and a brolly per day. The beds in front of the bar Costa **** (can't remember the full name) also provided a bottle of water for that price and the food there was very good.
The beach is very shallow and safe, although it can get a wee bit busy on a Sunday when the locals come down to enjoy it too. To me that can only be a recommendation in itself.
We have a couple of days where the weather was mixed and the hotel had a little booklet of walks - we walked to Kalyves one day (took a taxi back!!) and a beautiful village called Douliana which is where we will spend out second week. Don;t want to say too much as too many other people might find it too!!! :)
The band on the roof terrace of the Almyrida Resort (one night) were also excellent but I don't know if they are going to be booked again next year as some members were returning to the UK.
We don't usually return to the same place so the fact that we are going again speaks for itself!!
