Good hotel, but a long walk to the beaches
Posted Aug 9, 2013
The Lydia Maris was a good hotel, everything I'd expected for the price, except that, for me, it was too far from the beach. But I probably hadn't checked properly before booking. If you like a pool holiday, it's fine, but make sure you get to the pool early in the morning to reserve your sun loungers, as they don't have enough for everyone! The staff were generally friendly, and the entertainment/animation was good for young children. The food was good too, with enough variety and enough vegetarian options - lots of fresh salads, roast vegetables, olives, feta cheese, etc. For pudding there was lots of fresh fruit, and some lovely very sweet Greek cakes drenched in honey.
