I stayed a week at Phaedra Beach with my parents and younger sister. It was appropriate for chilling and doing nothing besides going to the swimming pool and beach; everything was near.
The food was good. I really enjoyed it. Also, it was clean all over the place. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The showers from the pool and beach were really useful.
As many already said, the sunbeds from the pool were reserved with towels before 7 a.m.. Of course, one could have them removed and occupy the sunbeds, but what followed depended on the diplomacy of the "victim". The ones from the beach costs 3 euros each. The beach was nice, rocky after the entrance in the sea, but a TIP: go in the little golf (direction west); it is really close and has rocks only on the sides.
It is a place with many rooms and there are all types of people there. The noisy young crows can disturb, but they don't spend much time there. If one keeps the windows open the noise from outside is to be heard (also after 11 p.m.). It depends on how easy one can sleep. I had no problems.
As a whole it is a nice place and I recommend it to people who have not really high expectations.
