4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

The people were very helpful and we saw many beautiful beaches and surrounding areas including a boat ride near Skorpios island etc etc. The pool was clean and a midst a tropical garden. The hotel also has a beach but it was pebbles and i like sand so, the pool was great for days we didn't want to budge. Cocktails were served pool side too so with no driving ahead of us we relaxed and enjoyed the garden surrounding us ;)

Hello everybody!
I stayed in Hotel Alexandros A' in Nikiana-Lefkada between 11 - 18 September,
I would rate this hotel as a very good 3* hotel or a mediocre 4*.
Great Location and Service, maybe you need a car to explore the beautiful sites of Lefkada,
Don't forget to go on the boat trip from Nydri to the islands nearby.
Anyway the rooms were OK but not the best.
My only suggestion for any future traveller is : Travel only if you are in a good mood !!
The best company and a great mood is all you need in my humble opinion!
I wish the best to all future travellers.

ps.book a SUITE !!

Everything was terrible. You can start from the service, rooms and especially the food. They use leftovers to serve the next guests. The island is beautiful but definitely consider another hotel. I wouldn't even class it as a 1-star let alone a 4-star. Shame. Shame. Shame. As you can see they don't save the good rooms for the Greeks. Unfortunately they remove the pages with negative comments from the guest comments book, but fortunately they can't remove this and the truth will be told. It's people like this that ruin the reputation of the country. It's a pity because Greece has a lot to offer.

The hotel is well located on the beach with a very nice sea view from our room but it is also on the road and extremely loud.The room is nice and big but not as clean as I had expected. The hotel does not worth the four star category but a lower category. The breakfast area did not seem clean at all and whenever the food at the buffet was over we had to tell the receptionist to put more stuff on the buffet.

We have just returned from Lefkas, Greece. We stayed at the Alexandros hotel in Nikiana, which is supposed to be a four star hotel. Yeah right! Who gave them four stars? This was BY FAR the worst hotel we have ever been to, and we have been to quite a few.
First of all, there is food at the hotel. Breakfast is the same everyday, there is ham, cheese, butter, honey, one type of corn flakes and bread, which by the way will be there for dinner, if it is not eaten at breakfast (seriously). Dinner is being served. There is only ONE menu, you either eat the dinner or not (for example: if you are a vegeterian and meat is for dinner, you either eat it or not, there is nothing else).
But at least there is the "salad bar" (at least that is what we were told by our travel agent), right? Wrong! There are three, maybe four (if you are lucky) SMALL bowles, in one there are tomatoes, the other cucumber, next one beans, and maybe some green salad (when there is a fourth bowl). And that is it. Forget about greek salad, you will have to go to a restaurant if you want to try that. Thank god this is a small hotel, because there is one girl, sometimes two, serving dinner, and that takes time. Because she is busy, it can happen that there is no more salad, and you will have to wait (very long) some time before she brings out the new. This is of course not her fault, she can not be at five places at the same time, but owner's. But it's all about the money, right? Fewer people work, fewer paychecks, more money for the owner. And if you are staying there for two weeks, like we did, at least you will know the entire menu for the next week, because it repeats itself.
Another story are the hotel rooms. We have payed for the ocean view. The room was on the same side as the ocean, but the only thing we were viewing was the hotel's restaurant. When we turned the air conditioning on, it started to smell really bad, after a while. I don't know if this is the right word, it smelled like moisture, which can be also dangerous for your health. We had an additional bed for our three year old daughter. There were traces of rust coming through the mattress of this bed. When we showed it to the cleaning lady she told us she would change it. But we found out that all she did was put three sheets over it. I must say that we were talking to some of the other guests, and found out that not all rooms were like that, that some were actually quite good, but usually they are reserved for Greek guests.
And another weird thing. You can not throw toilet paper into the toilet, and that is in all of the Greece. You must throw it in a waste bin.
No one at the hotel knows how to speak english, except for younger employees. The first day we were there we asked one lady who was working in the reception, where was the nearest store, to buy some drinking water. The only thing she understood was water, and gave us directions to the pool bar.
Well, the outside area is not so bad, the pool area I must admit is very nice, and the beach is O.K., although there are some breathtaking beaches on the west side of the island, like Porto Katsiki and Egremnoi. The good thing is to rent a car and go check them out, because they are not that far, about an hour and a half drive from the hotel. Even better thing is to find a different hotel, maybe somewhere closer to those beaches.
But this review is not about Lefkas, it is about Alexandros hotel, which is terrible. If you are going to a hotel just so you have a place to sleep, then it will probably be fine, but if you are going there with your family, where there are small children, you better bring some food that he /she likes along.
Well, anyway, if you think I'm exaggurating, try it out. Just don't say no one warned you.
