We returned to The Hermes apartments for a second time, it was good to see that not a lot has changed since our last visit in 2011, staff have, but not a lot else. Buses still a lot of fun, we did hire a car through a company in town, Thomson's wanted 220 Euro p/w, which we thought was steep, the other place was 171 Euro for the week, most places in the town offer the same prices, obviously Thomson's want the commission, as with boat trips, we went into town along the front and booked The Eleni with Makis, Janis and Costas, fruit wine and water included and really good fun and great trips to Lalaria, Tsgouria and Kastro, nothing is too much trouble for them and at 15 euros each great Value, children most welcome and safe swimming and opportunity to get lunch at Tsgouria and Kastro, if you don't want lunch, pack your own and take your towels and beach umbrellas.
Valid point about cold showers but with everyone coming off the beach and getting ready to go out for the evening there will only be so much hot water, we did find the best time was 5-00 pm for a hot one!
Apartments were clean comfortable and sheets and bedding changed sufficiently!
We had the best food and company at Sea U Restaurant along the front in town, great opportunity to sit. relax and enjoy, the food company and views especially the yatchts, daydreaming essential !! Best for sunsets, Agia Eleni Beach.
We loved Kolios Beach, we found it peaceful, tranquil and really safe for children.
