“What a view!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

In a beautiful very green small , unfortunately not very known , small island of the Ionian sea across Lefkada island.
We were lucky and they have given us one of the two suite rooms of the hotel (upgrade) the Ocean suite (502) .
A very spacious room with an exceptionally big balcony with extraordinary view of the sea , Lefkada and Scorpios island.
The balcony had sun beds and umbrella.
A large infinity pool with equally stunning views.
A pleasant bar although some times they put the music a little loud than it should be.
The staff was quite friendly. Very good breakfast with local products.
Do not miss a walk at the village Spartoxori and eat at the “Lakis” taverna ( every Thursday they have a show with Greek music ) delicious spare ribs.
At Vathi the beautiful port of Meganisi you will enjoy the view of a lot of sailing boats and good fish food at Ericos taverna .
A very nice beach after Vathi on your way to Balou bay.

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Esperides. Hotel is lovely views are amazing from bedrooms and pool. We went bed and breakfast, ate at hotel on one occcassion and food was good. Two restaurants in Spartochori food was excellent, Taverna with amazing views over Spillia Bay. Ate at the restaurant in harbour area of Spillia Bay again lovely. Hired a motor boat from Vathi which is a lovely village with a few more Tavernas etc. Meganissi is a hidden gem it is like stepping back in time. Hopefully it will remain this way. If you are looking for loud music and discos this is not the place for you.

We stayed at the hotel for a week. It has excellent view, nice rooms and the staff is really willing to help. The pool area is also awesome, if not full of children that take over most of the pool.
However, the breakfast was unacceptable as the buffet was exposed to flies and sphinxes, and coffee -other that filter coffee- was charged as an extra. Halfboard was also a waste of money as the quality was very poor. We did not choose to eat there after 2 times. Hopefully the rest of the island has very good food.
The island is a relaxing, beautiful place but we would think twice to stay at the same hotel.

We stayed at the Esperides at the same time as the latest three
reviews and there's not much we can add. We had a brilliant two weeks
and the positives far outweigh the couple of niggles -

We had dinner on our first evening and it was an experience we chose
not to repeat - the food was a disaster. They are missing a huge
opportunity here as the location is sublime and we would loved to have
stayed in a couple of times. Instead we went out to eat every evening
and came back and enjoyed a bottle of wine and the view on our
balcony.

Sunbeds were at a premium most days but this was made worse by the
hotel welcoming non-residents from the yachting fraternity and
holidaying families with babies, buggies and children staying in cheap
apartments from the village coming in and using the facilities all
day. Sometimes the children came without adults in the afternoon and
were unsupervised in the pool.

One final whinge is that the bar staff at the pool liked to have their
radio sometimes at full volume blasting out Eurotrash music. Most
people have gone to this resort for peace and relaxation and even
though they were asked on numerous occasions to turn this down it soon
crept back up again.

A higher profile manager would have rectified all these issues - we
didn't see anyone during our stay. The receptionist Maria was
delightful and Fortina never stopped working.

I had to prise myself away from his hotel after our two week stay. The view from the pool and balcony (every room has a sea facing balcony) towards Skorpios was stunning. Even on the one day there was a storm, it was simply amazing to watch.

This hotel is fantastic for a secluded break. While the hotel is very modern, the island of Meganissi is very rural. If you want discos and crowded bars this island is not for you. The local village of Spartochori is a ten minute walk away, past olive trees, goats and chicken coups. In the village I recommend the Lakis Taverna and Petro's bar, which has a fantastic view. Both are extremely friendly and welcoming. There is also a pizza restaurant in the village. The hotel bus will take you anywhere on the island for 2€ each. Vathy is a nice small port with several bars (Boom Boom is good) and a number of Tavernas. There is a small relaxing beach at Spilia Bay which the hotel bus goes to daily and several more out of the way places, perfect if you want to laze the day away in a secluded spot. You can also hire motor boats which allow you to explore Skorpios (there are two beaches on the far side of the island you can anchor off).

We travelled to the hotel independently and the hotel were very helpful arranging our transfers. They just could not do more for you.

We did not stay half-board so cannot comment, but the lunches by the pool were of an excellent standard, with fantastic service and a good selection of snacks and salads.

The pool was amazing. It was an effort not to sit there for hours watching boats go by and admiring the view. We even saw dolphins on several occasions. It was a perfect break in every way.

We plan to go back to this hotel many times.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view.

Stayed here for 2 weeks . Location is stunning ,every room has a sea view and the views from the pool and restaurant are lovely.
Pool area was very clean and the pool itself was infinity type and was lovely for cooling down and watching the boats down below.Views look out across to Nidri and Skorpios Island.
The hotel's minibus would take you anywhere on the island for 2 euros which was a great feature.
I had booked half board and unfortunately that was a big disappointment. The food quality was quite poor and the choice was minimal ( for a 4 star hotel).This could of been amazing ,an opportunity missed, A restaurant having the views that it does should be fully utilised.
If you are planning to stay here book B&B only.Plenty of choice on the island.
Overall Meganissi is a fantastic place , good for walking , beaches are pebbly however the sea is so clean and good for swimming/snorkelling.
Would I come back , in an instant !
