Basically we needed a short, cheap, sun garanteed holiday and this was near enough perfect. The rooms are very basic, but considering all you do is sleep there its fine. The rooms are clean though and the hotel staff are all excellent - many, many people appear to go back time and time again. Spiros the evening bar manager is brilliant, kind, funny and helpful. Andreas the owner, who serves you breakfast every morning is also great. He is very helpful, always willing to accomadate your needs and clearly enjoys his job and is proud of his hotel.
One of the best things about the hotel is the location. Paleokastritsa is a great, quiet and beautiful place and of all the hotels along the strip there, the Paleo Inn is in the best location, right in the middle of the 4 beaches to chose from everyday. The nearest one is 300m away. They are all beautiful, clean, crystal clear places and aa combination of pebble and sand. Great for couples not really for children. My son would have struggled if he had been there as there is no room to play on the beach. Its all about the suntan and peace. It is even possible to hire a power boat and travel to the Pardise beaches 30 mins away for alomost complete solitude. We did and it was well worth the 90 euros it cost us for the 8 hours we had the boat including fuel, to travel to any beach and see the other bays.
Eating out is also easy and good. Many restaurants to choose from. Neireids is the best where the standard is very high both in presentation and quality. Approx £45 for a starter, main and one drink each. Nausike next door to the hotel is also very good and the staff there are great too. Barbq nights with them and other hotels are very good value. Spiro' s a 20 minute walk away is also very highly rated with some people eating there many times during their stay but their service let us down. Dolphin and Gyros Pitta were also good but Belveder although fine for me made other people ill the next day - the only complaint i heard about any restaurant by people in our hotel.
Lastly tyou must do the challengiing walk up to Lakones and the monastry. It is 1 hr up hill - take water and breaks - to the village where you turn left at the top and eat well deserved ice cream from Dolce which has some of the best views you will ever see. Having travelled the world and as a 35 yr old bloke it takes a lot to impress me but the views from here and a couple of hundred metre further along at The Golden Fox - one of the best pool/bars/hotels ever - are really good. It takes just over an hr to get there but then you can relax, eat and drink for as long as you like by the pool with the views of the sea, bays and mountains for as long as you like. It is another hr walk onto the monastry and obviously the same back. We spread this trip over the whole day and was well worth it. If you cant walk it, hire a taxi ( if there not on strike) as it will be one of the things you will always remember and talk about.
Brilliant trip. Go.
