Reviewed August 27, 2011

Stayed at the Palm Trees hotel for 1 week at the end of September 2010. Hotel is clean and comfortable, in a prime location right on the beach yet a small stroll from the centre of Nidri. Room was well furnished with LCD tv, fridge, air conditioning, balcony with stunning sea view, clean and adequate bathroom with shower. The owner and his family were very accommodating during our stay. Breakfast was basic but adequate and there were alternatives available at a small cost, including bacon and eggs which were as good as any we've ever had! Meals were available for lunch and in the evening and this included a daily special cooked by the owners mother. Safe to say that the specials were also extremely good and as good as anything that was available in the tavernas in Nidri.
Overall we enjoyed our stay immensely and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Having read the previous reviews, yes this is not a 5 star hotel and therefore you should not expect 5 star standards. However, for a 2 star hotel, that has stunning sea views, which is clean and comfortable and has a great family providing excellent service, you cannot find any better!! Highly recommended!!

B&B rooms are basic but clean, Room cleaning every day with sheets and towels changed every 3 days. Air conditioning available at extra charge. Studio rooms are brand new and spacious. Each room has a balcony with the B&B rooms having a view of the beach and the ionian sea with the islands of Spiros and Meganissi.

Room Tip: For best deal phone direct to hotel

A friend and I made few demands and greatly enjoyed our week at the Palm Trees Hotel in Nidri, but we try here to give a balanced impression, bearing in mind what people often want.

We visited in late September. The hotel lies down a short lane leading off Nidri's main road. We heard no traffic and there were no rowdy guests. The small back garden is only moderately well maintained, the huge palms being its main glory, but it is right on the shingly beach. This is fairly narrow and shelves steeply once you are in the water, which is amazingly calm and clear. We did not need to pay to use the hotel’s loungers because we just swam.

Our own second floor bedroom was simply furnished with no easy chair. We found the beds firm but comfortable. This particular room was sparklingly clean and bright like most of the public areas. The fairly small ground floor bar and buffet area is not so bright. The bedroom walls were thin, but our neighbours were quiet. We did not need the safe deposit box or air conditioning so we escaped the extra charges for these. There was a telephone, an unstocked refrigerator and a TV without English language channels. Our balcony (with sunblind, table, chairs and drying rack) had the most wonderful view of the sea through the palm trees.

The small bathroom was divided in two by the raised edge of the shower tray, which enclosed the toilet as well as the shower. (The shower curtain enclosed only the shower and did keep the toilet dry.) This layout could be awkward. There was a decent-sized wash basin with constant hot water. The toilet cistern functioned well under its chipped lid. The shower curtain was slightly stained. As elsewhere in Greece, used toilet paper had to be placed in a bin and not in the toilet bowl. The bathroom and bedroom were cleaned on all but our last day. Strangely, the top sheets and bedspreads were removed and folded, so we had to remake our own beds each evening.

We did not like the monotony of the limited self-service breakfast choice included in our daily tariff. This has been described by other reviewers and made a tight-fisted impression. We did not buy any extras from the displayed menu. I ate my own bananas.

Breakfast was eaten under cover on the terrace, which was a nice setting. There isn’t really a residents’ lounge — only some seating between the buffet and the Greek-language TV set which was probably the owners’ family space. The lift was available only during the day because the ground floor lift lobby, which leads also to the owners' living quarters, is sealed off at night.

Letters of thanks on a noticeboard proved that many visitors had enjoyed lunches and festive evenings of home cooking which we did not experience.

Nidri at the end of the season was quite sedate, with good restaurants and plenty of boat trips still available. We did not experience the traffic and crowds which are criticised in some travel guides. We did some walking and visited Lefkada Town (which has a fine Greek bookshop), Meganissi, Cephalonia and Ithaca. We ate well, except at breakfast.

Because we saw the hotel just as a base for exploring Lefkas and the islands in a cooler time of year, we made few demands and were enchanted by the view. Perhaps we were lucky to have an immaculate room. If we had hoped for attentive service we would have felt disappointed, but in the event we were happy with our week.

This hotel is in need of a revamp. The smallest bathroom i have ever seen, I wasn't even able to stand in front of the toilet! The most boring breakfast every day. Sheets only changed once a week, and room not serviced on Saturdays. The garden was so overgrown that you couldn't see the sea from the 1st floor balcony. No English speaking channels on your TV. They say a friendly family run hotel, but with kids constantly running around and the owners watching greek TV in the small lounge I felt I was an intruder in thier home.

We stayed here for two weeks and paid a premium as is was well reviewd. We are experience travellers to Greece and were looking forward to a delightful holiday. The only good thing about Palm Trees is its location it has lovely views and is on the beach. The hotel is small dirty and in desperate need of refurbishment. Scruffy old tiny room, tired oand inadequate bathroom with dirty stained fittings/shower curtain/towels etc.There was tatty old plastic garden furniture, and crowded, grotty expensive sunbeds (theirs were more expensive than all the other sunbeds on the beach). Breakfast was included but also uninspired. Toast jam, cheese and cornflakes only, everyday for two weeks.

We found that the owners were not the friendly helpful family I was expecting but rather we felt we were intruding in a private home with thier noisy children and tv on Greek sport channel all the time. Certainly did not feel we would be welcome in the only small lounge area available. Everything about this hotel is about maximum pofit for minimum service. It is way overdue for some major investment and service improvement. There are lots of hotels along the same strtch of beach which were far nicer and shared the same aspect.

This is the second year in a row that we've stayed at palm trees. For a stress free, relaxing holiday, it really is hard to beat. Its lovely to lie on a lounger, gazing out to sea and just take in the view. Although the hotel is basic, it does have a charm of its own, maybe they pump mood altering drugs through the air vents because none of the gripes seem to put us off wanting to go again!!
If you want to go somewhere that your hair can look well less than perfect, go without makeup, float around in a sarong all day and then not have to get all tarted up for your evening meal, this is the place to be, of course you can do all of the mentioned if you wish, but nobody seems to think any less of you if you dont!!
I dont know what it is but the others guests always seem to be really nice to chat to as well.
ps if you might want to do your hair, take your own hairdryer, as they arent provided!!

my hubby and i have done many greek islands enjoyed most of them but have never had a holiday as fantastic as this one from meeting dina and her lovely family on 1st day you felt welcome in her home and part of a large family. the view from our 2nd floor balcony was breathtaking and to enjoy a cold drink from there in evening magical. palm trees is a small friendly family run b and b hotel with all family helping out ,mammas great cooking pappas raki [what a night] and the children .helping dina and nikos just makes it special. we booked straight away for 2011 along with another two couples to make sure we could get in. what the last reviewers were looking at is a mystery to me if they wanted a 5 star all inckusive they should have paid for it. it was a simple continental breakfast but thats what is says in brochure and for the weather at 35-38 who wants cooked [which u could have had but paid a bit extra] lefkas bread yummy with different flavour jams ,ham.cheese and eggs cornflakes, juice and hot drinks all eaten in garden overlooking sea [bliss] i could go on and on but all other reviews speak for this lovely hotel it is simply the best. nidri harbour 5 mins walk with everything you need great tavernas[appollon] the best] cocktail bars and great boat trips christina our favourite. all round fantastic island cant wait till 2011.
