Reviewed September 27, 2013

This hotel is very well run, spotlessly clean and well maintained- the staff are very helpful and respond immediately to any problems. It is well located at the end of the promenade so it is quite quiet and right by the seafront. The rooms are fairly basic but have a small fridge, TV, safe, individual aircon, hairdryer, washing line and even a mosquito screen to the balony doors. Showering is quite an art as the curtain can stick to you but hey- this is Greece!The pool is clean and there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols and even a jacuzzi which is switched on on request. Breakfast is basic but good quality continental style, and the area serves as a bar during the day.The Pool Bar, which opens in the evening,is a delight, being lit up very prettily. A short walk along the seafront brings you to a great selection of cafes and restaurants and all reasonably priced- a large beer is 3 euros and coffee 2. Three courses with wine for two was around 30 euros and watching the harbour life was an idyllic way to spend an evening. Parallel to the promenade is a road with lots of shops,cafes etc so you are never short of places to go.The frozen yogurt and the waffles are excellent everywhere!
The bus to Lefkas town stops right outside the hotel, the other direction takes you to Vasilliki, both journeys about 20 mins and 2-3 euros. Lefkada is joined to the mainland by a pontoon bridge by Lefkas town, which swings over for five minutes on the hour every hour, to allow the boat traffic to pass and maintain it's island status (for tax purposes!) Quite a sight!
Back in Nidri, there are sunbeds and parasols available further along the front for 2-4 euros a day, but the beach is mainly pebbles.You can walk the 3 km to the waterfall ( best after it's been raining) or take a boat trip around the island. Although the ferry will take you to the island of Meganissi the timetable means that unless you go at about 7am you can't get back! About the only disappointment in a lovely relaxing fortnight.

From arrival to departure, the staff have been excellent.. Very friendly and helpful... Breakfast buffet style unlike several of the hotels that our family were staying in which were very poor... Attended family wedding and we definitely got the best hotel... Clean, relaxed atmosphere and would recommend to anyone wanting a perfect experience in Nidris.

i stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, the hotel is in nidri area which i didnt like that much (if you go to leukada i reccomend that you book a hotel in leykas which is the capital of leykada), athos hotel is very near the port and you can go by walk to the cafes, restaurants and bars. The first day the room was very clean and modern but for 4 days the cleaner did not clean anything in the room, she only make the bed nothing else! The breakfast was terrible as it almost had nothing! Was having only bread and cheese, ham and one cake and If something was finished they did not refill it (not even the coffee), the staff was helpfull expept from the old lady who i believe is the owner, she was not welcoming and she couldnt even smile to her clients! The pool area was ok! For me athos hotel is an overated hotel, we paid 85 euros per night which i believe is too expensive as the hotel does not have a lot of things to offer you

Stayed here for a week with my mum in July. The hotel was very friendly and helpful and had everything you need. The air conditioning was a life saver! The swimming pool is the biggest out of all the hotels we saw in the area with plenty of space for sunbeds. the pool is also open to the public which is lovely as my brother who works and lives 10 minutes up the road, was able to join us at the pool in his lunch break. The breakfast was a little basic but in the heat you wouldnt want a huge breakfast. Excellent location for young adults as not too far to walk to the bars and restaurants, although remaining a nice quiet location.
Will definitely be returning!

This was way beyond our expectations and would definitely recommend to anyone going to Nidri in Greece. The hotel was very clean and the facilities very good, close to all amenities, the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help us in what ever we wanted to do. Again breakfast was a typical Greece affair but very nice and very healthy.
