I stayed here for 5 days in July 2012. The hotel is run by a couple (Angelo & Samantha) who are
originally Greek but have spent a fair bit of their life in Canada so both speak excellent English and were willing to let me join them for a drink most evenings. I had a slight problem about getting the all inclusive alcoholic drinks in the restaurant on my first night but this was very quickly sorted. The hotel does cater mainly for Italians but also Russians. Angelo is quite open about this and told me that some of the poor reviews from the Brits are due to a foul up with a British Travel Agent during 2011. I made my booking through Expedia (who made the mistake about what's included in the price) and was the only Brit staying there. The room I stayed in was adequate for the price I paid & cleaned daily. The restaurant provides a good selection of food and the freshly cooked pasta is a real bonus and very tasty. The staff at the hotel are a mixture of various nationalities, some Italian, some Eastern Europeans but I cannot fault how friendly & helpful everyone was and if they couldn't understand my English accent, they found someone who could. The animation staff were really good and whilst it might not appeal to everyone's taste it is well geared up for family entertainment. The bar prices are competitive e.g 3 euro for a beer, 2.50 each for brandy & ouzo. Coffee is between 1 & 3 euro but the soft drinks are all free.There is a disco bar that stays open until 00.30.
Lardos village is well worth a visit 1.60 by bus but walking there in 38 degrees is tough. I can recommend Yammas bar in the village for their friendliness and good hospitality.
I would like to thank all the management and staff at Lardos Bay Hotel for making my stay so enjoyable.
