We initially thought that we'd made the wrong choice because there weren't many tavernas around but found a couple of good restaurants within walking distance, Porto Lichnos on the main road, limited choice but the quality was excellent (always plenty of locals in, so you knew it was good) and the Coral on Lichnos beach (you could either walk back or Visili would always come and pick you up).
We also got the mini bus into Parga and Visili took us twice.
The room was excellent and it came with aircon which made for a very comfortable night's sleep.
We walked down to the beach each morning and walked back each evening but left it until the sun had dipped behind the mountain to make it a bit more bearable. After spending 8 hours on the beautiful beach we felt we had to make an effort and walk back. This was one of the only beach holidays that I've felt fitter when I've left.
A number of people who were staying at the hotel had been before which is a testament to hotel and the staff. Visili was very friendly and never hesitated to offer a lift if you needed it. The lady who cleaned the rooms did an excellent job every day and was very friendly.
You can buy 6 packs of water at the bar for the same price as the supermarket sells them for.
I couldn't really pick fault with the hotel and would definately return.
One thing that did annoy me was the litter on the beach at Lichnos (nothing to do with the hotel). After a couple of days of walking up and down the beach I decided to pick up all the litter over a 100 yard stretch leading up to the cliffs at the far end of the beach. I filled 2 carier bags full mainly of discarded plastic. Some of this had been washed up but unless it was directly outside a taverna or hotel, nobody was bothered about clearing it up.
After one particularly bad storm the beach at the top end had a line of discarded polystyrene and plastic bottles. Myself and my wife filled several plastic bags with rubbish from around he area where we used to sit. There was a 20 yard stretch we left, which still has rubbish on a week later.
