We stayed for a week at the end of May, booked as part of a package through Sunvil. The accommodation is very good quality, much better than the usual basic standard in Greece. The room was spacious, with a modern kitchen which was set aside from the main bedroom area, and the bathroom had a good powerful shower. The staff were lovely - always friendly and chatty. We opted to have breakfast for an additional 5 euros each a day, which was good, although could have included fresh fruit. There is a little fruit/veg shop across the road from the hotel which sells cherries, apricots, peaches etc anyway.
Nikiana is a fairly quiet resort, but we were at the start of the season. We ate at a few of the local seafront tavernas, which were all friendly and good value. Unless you just want to relax by the pool all week, I'd definitely recommend hiring a car to see more of the island which is really varied and interesting. We rented one for just a couple of days and went up into the mountains - just a few miles away from the resorts on the coast and you're in little villages where the women still wear black shrouds. We hardly saw any other cars so driving was easy. Karya village is well worth a visit - you can just sit in the square and watch the world go by.
