Could not find a better location than the Leda Beach Hotel. Front of the hotel overlooks ruins - lovely view of the amphi theatre as well and next door to the museum which is well worth a visit. Main bar and restaurant are at the front so nice outlook at breakfast and dinner. Excellent own small private beach through to the back of the hotel - managed very well by attendant who takes pride in his work, makes sure you have sun beds and shades and generally looks after you. Beach was sandy and went gently down to the sandy clear water (no rocks) where further out you could be lucky enough to see turtles. Best length of beach in my opinion. Breakfast is not much and gone if you get there late. No need for full or half board as there are plenty of shops, bars & restaurants a short walk along the beach road. Everything is priced in Euros. Hotel is far enough away so it's not noisy except when a neighbouring hotel has a 'doo'. Didn't like the look of the rooms in the main building, the chalets are basic but clean. Chalets around the pool are very close together and without shade so the better ones are in the gardens with verranda, table and chairs, lemon, lime, olive trees on your doorstep with med climbing flowers as well. Some of the chalets have staff accomodation attached to the rear of them (looked like small shed type extensions), but we weren't bothered by the staff coming and going. Our toilet always had a brown mush at the bottom of it which came back again after flushing. Hotel grounds were pretty but no good for anyone with mobility issues as there are a lot of steps made from the ancient stones. They don't like you taking you own food and drink into the hotel, but if you are discreet you can manage it. Staff were all polite and helpful. Hotel is good value if you are on a budget. Main thing is the location and their stretch of beach. We enjoyed our week long stay and would go back there again if we wanted another budget break.
