This year we decided to go on a lads holiday, we knew the popular places like Malia and Zante but we didn't fancy going there because we were told it isn't as good as people say. Our travel agent suggested Faliraki, we had never heard of it before but decided to go for it.
We were flying with Small Planet who to be honest was a pretty poor airline, the flight was delayed by 2 hours and when we finally boarded the plane we discovered that there was no leg room, it was so bad we struggled to get our table down.
When we finally got to the hotel we checked in, paid for the air-con and safe which are both worth getting. The rooms were very good, we all thought that the rooms would be pony because of what we paid and that it was a lads holiday. We then met our rep Roxane, she offered us the package, that included, paint and foam party, 2 bar crawls and drink vouchers for the others nights. That was for 82 euros. We said that we wanted to look around first but she said that drinks cost 8 euros and you had to pay for entry into bars and clubs. So after hearing that we paid. Which was a big mistake, you do not have to pay for entry into clubs or bars, all you have to do is ask the person outside we'll come in if its free, and drinks are not 8 euros, the supermarket over the road is cheap as chips, buy drink form there and pre drink in your rooms. To be honest Roxane was a pretty poor rep, she forgot to give us our vouchers and was bloody annoying on nights out. 'Lets get wasted!' (you'll understand if she's your rep).
On Wednesday's and Saturday the hotel has about 200 Swedish people turn up, the girls there are pretty incredible but after a while it gets annoying as they take up all the space.
The nights out in Fala where decent, we had no hassle with anyone and everyone is friendly. Faliraki is small so there is only 2 clubs, Liquid and Bedrock, Bedrock was defiantly better, not as popular but was 10 times better. George's bar was also the best Bar out there and was a good place to go before Bedrock.
All in all I would way Faliraki is a great place to go for a first lads holiday, however, try not to book with Olympic because then you'll be flying with Small Planet, do not pay for the package the offer you, tell her to do 1! But defiantly consider the Stamos Apartments as a place to stay.
One final note, make friends with the barmen in George's, his name is Tyler, absolute legend. And when your in there look out for the signed yellow ball behind the bar and ask him what it is about.
