Its pretty basic here, but we were more than happy with that. The location, staff and pool area more than made up for it. The breakfast was just right and we ate here a couple of times for lunch if we were having a lazy pool day - their Greek Salad was one of the best! We didn't mind the...

The Lara is an extremely pleasant, owner managed, hotel with friendly helpful staff. Rooms are simple but comfortable, with all mod cons, though our shower was poor and wi fi connection unreliable. Breakfast is simple but adequate. The pool is very good and the patio and lounge are spacious and attractive. If you want a sea view, insist on 1st...

Just returned from a week at this hotel and was really pleased we'd chose it. We'd done some research and found it was highly rated plus it had a good location for access to the beach. Approx 3 min walk down hill but bit more coming back (but quicker if you were happy to pay €1.20 and get the local...

We spent two weeks here and found the hotel to be mostly what we wanted. On arrival we were shown to a room that had twin beds despite booking a double room, and emailing to confirm this, however we were quickly offered another room that did have the layout we wanted - however this was a smaller room and came...

We only stayed here for one night on our travels but I can't fault it in terms of price expectation. We had a triple room and it was perfectly clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast seated outside next to the pool the following morning. We didn't get time for a dip but the pool looked very inviting!

Stayed here in July last year. The staff are amazing and helped me recover my lost suitcase within a couple of hours. Beautiful clean rooms and towels/bed linen. Bar serves great food. Visiting again in 2 weeks time and have already booked Lara for next year. Pool area is big and pool is fab. Staff always on hand to help....
