Ended up here after an overbooking error by Nina Beach Hotel. Didn't take us long to realise that we were going to have a much happier holiday based at the Bouradanis. The owners are a lovely Greek family who helped us in a big way after being let down so badly by Nina Beach. Dimitrios, who spoke good English, couldn't do enough to help us with any local information and even ferried us to Nina beach on occasion for our evening meals there. The hotel is quiet and so sunbed availability never a problem. Snacks available all day and breakfast is continental style although boiled eggs were available every day as well. Air con is a little expensive at 5 Euros a night (two in each apartment so 10 Euros if you need both). Beach is 15 minute walk away and you pass by a salt lake with local birds and Pink Flamingos which is nice. The beach itself is of fine sand and the sun bed man only charged us 5 euros for two beds all day. When he saw that our child was sharing he dragged over an extra bed at no charge and then throughout the day brought us water melon and sweet melon for free. You definitely need a car as this is a very quiet area, we noted that scooters were a more popular choice for couples at least. There is a great go karting track within walking distance, 200 metres, we didn't try it but looked good fun. Overall we had a great time and thank you so much to Dimitrios and his family for looking after us.
