My wife and I were very concerned when we read a very negative comment on this web site about our trip to Lesbos Aeolian Village. We did contact Neilson , the company we booked with, and they put our mind at rest. We had to drive overnight to Gatwick as the flight was very early in the morning , which was a pain. The bus trip from the airport to the resort was long but the driver was calm and did not rush which was good as the roads had plenty of bends. On arrival at resort we were greeted by staff with a cold drink and they offered to take our luggage to our room, a first for me on this type of activity trip!
The room we had was very clean and a good size with all the equipment needed for this type of holiday. No toilet paper allowed down the loo though this had to be placed in a bin, a little strange.
The first lunch was very good with a vast range of salads and there was plenty of choice of main courses with some local dishes as well. The food remained very good throughout the week . The only complaint I would make is I ate too much!
The activities during the week were very well organised. My wife and I decided to sail and windsurf. The quality of the equipment was good and staff were prepared to fix things when it went wrong . There were strong on shore winds when we where sailing and staff were prepared to run into the water to help recover the boats ,which was fantastic . Instruction was outstanding from the more senior instructors and the younger instructors tried hard. Paddy , the senior windsurfing instructor, was outstanding in every way. Without his keen eye for detail I would not have gained my RYA certificate. Well done Paddy you will go far!
Would I encourage any one else to visit the Aeolian Village? I would say yes if you like an activity holiday and enjoy food. Well done Neilson.
