In the late September, beach is not crowded, it is spacious and you can lay whole day resting your eyes at great colours of blue ans turquise.

We went there two times with friends, properly dressed (not in bathing suites) and the first time around they sent us away saying they are closed. It was somewhat strange since the place was packed but ok. The second time, they did not pay any...attnetion to us. A fantastic couple at the next table pointed at us, suggesting to the waiter they think we try to order. He just went away without looking at us. We hunted them down 2 times, pointing at our table and once even attemted escorting the waiter to the table. They never came. After 20 mins we just left. Hating foreigners is systematic (true to all waiters we came across) and unjust. Avoid the place if you can.More

At first we paid for the umbrella 1500 lek (13euro) , to expensive being just the umbrella , nothing else included (not even water) things granted all around the globe (at least at this price point) . At the bar i ordered an "frappe" which...was everything but "frappe" , then the worst was at the restaurant , we ordered the most common sea foods , and had to wait more than 1 and a half hour , I would understand if tye food would bee any good , but you can find better ses food in Tirana at a mid level restaurant. I mean everything was slow at this place , not coming back to be ripped-off for microwaved food .More

Definitely one of the best part of south Albania, and a must visit resort! It is very pricy place but for its nature and the crystal 🌊 it is worth it! Some people may get annoyed because of large stones but for us it was...really a great impression!More

Well... this place is typical Dhermi place that rips off every tourist they reach...soulless. Prices are unreasonably high, the quality of the food is extremely low, the service is slow, rude and the waiters are exhausting because they are vb probably pushed by the owners...to sell you the most expensive food and drinks and if you dont buy them they immediately forget about you. Sad experience, I expected more from the beautiful Dhermi ):More

Some friends recommended trying it if visiting the South of Albania. Our experience was not that pleasant: 1. were unable to cancel a plate within a minute from its order 2. got double orders and were left with extra plates that we had to pay...for 3. portions were strikingly small (attached is a picture of a 10$ kallamar plate/ 10$ is considered "expensive" in Albania) Honestly, I won't recommend.More

I have lived in ALBANIA for many years and eaten at both this one and the Fishop in Tirana. I can say that my experience this trip to Drymades has been very disappointing. Portions are significantly smaller, service is horrendous and quality leaves much to...be desired. After lunch at this place we were still hungry and hoped that the fast food place next door would do the trick... Needless to say, unless you're deaperate, don't go to this place until at least September. Maybe by then their quality returns to what it should be.More

Right on the beach, in a small village off the Albanian Riviera - what a gem! Prosecco, fresh seafood and fish, under the beautiful green vines. This was our favourite restaurant in Drymades. It was a very busy Friday night so I think the staff...were a bit out of their league for such an influx of summer customers, but they managed pretty well. The beach there has crystal clear waters, is clean, has umbrellas and sun loungers for only €2.50 each. A seriously beautiful beach that yes is undergoing renovations, as they expand each year along with more hotels and bars popping up. Much nicer than Dhermi beach(!)More
