Galaxy Villas or Villa Lokasti

We have left booking a holiday until last minute we are a partyof 6 - 2 children and 4 adults 1 who is over 80 - which of these would be most suitable as we don't want to hire a car and need somewhere with easy walking distances for bars and beach any thoughts / comments would be much appreciated

I've never stayed in either Galaxy or Lokasti. They are both close to supermarkets, bars, and restaurants.

The beach is down a very steep hill (some people call it heart attack hill) in Hersonissos which is about 1km walk. You would need to get a taxi back up.

Both are very close to each other (a couple of minutes walk) and Koutoulafari is a small village so locationwise there is little to choose between them. That said, the Iokasti have a small supermarket next door and a restaurant / cafe onsight.

As giddam said, the beach is not within walking distance especially for an older person so a taxi would be needed.

The bars and restaurants of the village are not far away (5 minute walk) so these are easily reached.

Great food here - one of our best meals, Service was excellent

Have the Beef - amazing

The spinach and feta pies are also great.

We paid 42 euros - 2 starters and 2 main meals (includ Sides) and a great bottle of red.

This was well worth the money - in the UK you could easily pay £70-80 for this meal.

Would return

The Iokasti and Galaxy are next door to each other, the supermarket next door to iokasti si no longer open but there is one along the road opposite the Sports Cafe, and much bigger one is down the hill on the main road.

Koutouloufari is at the top of a hill so yes a taxi back up is a good idea for those who are not too nimble on their feet. Down the hill also is Star Beach which has small water park ideal for the kiddies......

Both hotels have pools. both of them have steps in and out, but the Iokasti has a side entrance with only a few steps to the apartments nearest the road. Iokasti also has a proper restaurant whereas Galaxy only does a 'snack'menu.

There are lots of restaurants nearby, recommended are Oniro and Emmanuel....Also many bars including the famous Vinnie's garden....
