“Very nice and peaceful place, really kind and helpful owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This guesthouse is family-run, and it is little to say that they are dedicated to their guests... We were extremely well received, even without previous booking and in the absence of the 24-year old, english speaking, co-owner son. He arrived one day later and was extremely kind and helpful, in particular for a laundry service and for taking us to the bus with his car.

Breakfast was really good with home-made quince marmelade, honey, butter, toasts, feta cheese, eggs, coffee, etc... The room was 25€, which is far less expensive than on the beach, calm included ;)

Originally planned as a 2 or 3 nights stop by the sea during our 3 weeks trip to Albania, we finally decided to stay 4 nights in this little paradise, 10-15min walk away from the amazing Drymades beach and close charming coves. We had an amazing stay in this area!

The place was 5-10min far (walk) from the main Saranda-Vlora road where the bus left us, it is easy to reach for non-motorized backpackers, so is the beach from the guesthouse.

September was really peaceful: great weather but no tourist around. This means no fiesta in the evening, little choice in restaurants, but rest, peace, and privatized coves!

Room Tip: Only the couples can benefit from the best rooms, with a nice double bed and view on the beach... Th...

We had an amazing stay in Dhermi because of Vangellis (owner's son) hospitality. He did everything he could to help us during our stay in Dhermi.

When we arrived we had forgotten a passport in the previous hotel on Jal beach, and he drove us all the way there to pick it up for us. He was such a nice friendly guy and told us many things about the people, the area, and the culture.

The hotel has sweeping views over the bay and has a pretty garden after the front gate. A very pretty place to stay in Dhermi.

Staying here is like staying with a friend as the manager Vangellis is the definition of hospitality!

Room Tip: Top rooms have a great sea view.

We spent a memorable few days at Yard Paradise, the garden is truly lovely and cool even in the summer heat and the beach in Dhermi is absolutely wonderful. The hotel is uphill from the beach (seaviews only from the upper floors) but we walked downhill in the morning and were picked up by the owner in the evening. With your own transport it's even better as there is parking space too. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the air conditioning and warm water worked fine (but there was no stove in the kitchenette). Kids loved running around in the garden and looking at the goats and donkeys on the neighbouring plots of land (lots of construction sites too, but the olive groves and cicadas still dominate) and for breakfast we had pancakes - which they obviously loved too. All in all Dhermi was the best stop on our three week Balkan tour (even though the road there through the mountains was a trying experience) and Yard Paradise Hotel was a beautiful example of true Balkan hospitality.

Room Tip: Upper floors have views, groundfloor apartments have their own entrance.

We had an amazing time in this beautiful family run hotel! We were by public transport and the beach is about 10 min walking, but the owner's son insisted us on bringing us by car (he also picked us up and brought us to the busstation).. In the evenings we enjoyed pleasant conversations while enjoying fresh drinks in the garden and in the mornings we could prepare ourselves for a good day with an amazing breakfast! Especially the crepe was good (three layers with banana, chocolate and biscuits) the family is very friendly and wants to help you with everything they can, we are definitely coming back!

situated close to a stunning beach, yard paradise hotel is a small family run establishment. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, helped me park the car and drove us to show us the beach on the first night of our stay. Gave good advice and recommendations over a cup of coffee. If you're looking for a quiet couple of nights, next to a gorgeous beach in a home-like environment this place is for you!
