So many people have already written good reviews, but I always check trip advisor before travelling and feel its important to also comment for future guests.
Hotel: Great location for the village and the beach. Short walk to the beach down a (very) steep slope and you're there. We timed it, and even walking slowly it only took just under 5 minutes. It's hard going on the return, but burns off a few calories! Sensible footwear a must! Rooms are clean, spacious, have good amenities as standard and the views are breathtaking. Natasha and the team are delightful, breakfast is buffet style with plenty of choice & the one meal we ate there was delicious and great value.
Beach: Beach is lovely, although rocky in places, this is however great for exploring and snorkelling. Jelly shoes are beneficial. Most beds/ umbrellas charged at €5 although if you sit near AlSpagna they are free (provided you order at least a drink or two) Food and drinks are reasonably priced though. Sea is warm and really beautifully clear.
Afitos Village: Very quaint, with everything you might need. Lovely restaurants (The Pirate Cod being our favourite for choice and quality), cafes, a few bars and some shops/supermarkets. It does get busier at the weekends as many Greeks/Eastern Europeans travel down, but it's not unbearable and actually added to the ambience.
We travelled via Thomson & Jamie the advisor is on hand should you need him. He does a walking tour of the village which we enjoyed, plus we went on their boat trip Castaway which was a lovely relaxing day out.
All in all, a beautiful location for a relaxing holiday. Would recommend it if you are looking for a quiet break in the sun.
PS. The photos attached genuinely do Rigas, Afitos and the views justice!
