Igescu Gheorghe - Romania/Bucharest


We just arrive from our holiday vacation in Lefkada and to be sincere, we have only words of praise about the place… everything was perfect. And beginning with the hotel(by far, the best choice ever). The conditions are by far 3+ / with trend toward 4. A family business hotel, managed by a family man(Mr. Ilias).

Mr. Ilias managed to satisfy any curiosity and problem I had, helping as he knew better. To be short, a man of 10 + . As our friends told us from the beginning about the place (don't worry, it will be perfect and it is as good as it gets). From our behalf, we recommend this place for couples and family with kids all sow. The pool is great, all sow the bar area, where you can chill is great(full of green). The breakfast was consistent, and quite varied… but I do recommend to put in one kind of white cheese(you Greeks, have probably the best cheese J ).

Mr. Ilias keep up the good work and good luck

Thank you once again for being a perfect host, crating for us the perfect vacation.

Best regards, and hoping to see you soon once again.

 Τέλεια διαμονή!!!!!!!

Η παραμονή μας στο ξενοδοχείο Phoenix ήταν υπέροχη!

Μείναμε στα ξεχωριστά studios που υπάρχουν στον πίσω κήπο,το Stavlos Cottage ηταν ότι καλύτερο μπορούσαμε να ζητήσουμε, η φινέτσα,η ποιότητα και το καλό γούστο της Ουρανίας Μελά,της ιδιοκτήτριας, ήταν διάχυτα παντού!!

Τα αναμμένα κεράκια που μας περίμεναν το βράδυ μας έκαναν να νιώθουμε ότι επιστέφαμε σπίτι μας!!! Ανεξάρτητα,δροσερά..ήσυχα..τέλεια!!!!!!

Οι παροχές του ξενοδοχείου, πισίνα, πρωίνο, φαγητό ήταν στη διαθεσή μας. Οσο για τα φαγητά της Κας Ελένης,της μαμάς Μελά με υλικά απο το περιβολάκι τους...δεν νομίζω να υπήρχαν καλύτερα πουθενά..ούτε στο σπίτι μας!!!!!!!

Ενα μεγάλο μπραβο στην Ουρανία και τον αδερφό της τον Ηλία για τις υπέροχες στιγμές που μας πρόσφεραν!!!!!!!!!

 Great position for exploring the island

Really nice hotel, friendly atmosphere, we had breakfast included, really good selection (greek yogurt, fruit, vegetables, toasts, cakes, eggs, bacon, tea, coffee, juices..), free wifi, pool, A/C, rooms clean and cleaned every day, new towels once in 7 days. Quite close - 10 mins walk - to the centre with taverns, shops. 1 minute walk to the beach with pebbles. Vassiliki has a great position (20 minutes with scooter) to get to the best beaches on the island - Egremni and Porto Katsiki (30 mins). I would really recommend, there was no problem during our stay, only one night there was a lound disco/karaoke on the near beach, but when you closed windows, it was quite ok, not a fault of the hotel though.

 Lovely family run hotel with delicious fresh food

The second time we have stayed at this hotel ( whilst also doing the "wildwind" dinghy and cat sailing). Iannis and all the family are extremely friendly and caring and speak excellent English. Bathrooms are a touch "greek" but clean and everything was just fine in the rooms. All meals are superbly fresh and well prepared.

Lovely family owned hotel

We spent two weeks in the hotel while on a sailing/water activities holiday. The family and staff members were friendly and the service was consistently good. Rooms were cleaned daily and a great breakfast buffet was served in the mornings. The hotel easily catered for my gluten free needs which was very welcome and the menu had specials everyday, cooked by the wonderful Mama Melas. The pool provided lovely relaxation in the afternoons after hectic morning water activities. Right beside the beach and an easy ten minute stroll into the village, our room had air conditioning, kettle and fridge as well as a sea view and balcony. Would definitely return to enjoy the atmosphere and service.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, it's a little more expensive but worth it.

A great mix

Great family run hotel, staff are lovely, food is home cooked, place is really clean. Lovely pool with shaded courtyard. Our room was in the original hotel building, sea facing, ground floor, balcony, with air conditioning, fridge, kettle, few plates, cups & glasses making it perfect for daytime nibbles. Once all the daytime sailing action was over it was a great place to come back to, very peaceful & relaxing, no back ground music, no tv, - there is wifi available. The Melas family were lovely hosts, nothing was a problem to them. The hotel is right on the beach, 5 min walk/ 3min cycle from Vassilaki town.

 Great place for a nice holiday

We spent part of our holiday in this hotel, and it was the right choice. Great location, quite spacious room, excellent terrace, nice garden and pool, great staff. In the morning you can enjoy a very good breakfast, as during the day you can have lunch or dinner here, and the food is excellent.
Daily cleaning in the room, they change quite often the sheets and towels. The pictures from their website are what you actually get. Very good quality of the mattress, although the pillows where not that comfortable (I would suggest to have also some soft pillows available)
One thing which I would improve is the water pressure for the shower. When a lot of people in the hotel are showering, the pressure sometimes is not that good.

I would also recommend this hotel, not just for windsurf lovers, but also for swimming and sunbathing in the sea, as there are quite few good places where you can swim (excellent water), or relax in a sunbed. In the evening the city offers a great variety of restaurants and taverns.

From this hotel everything is very close: if you like water sports, if you like swimming or staying on the beach, if you want to go to super market, if you want to go into city center for restaurants and shops, if you want to take a bat trip, if you want to go (by car) to most famous beaches (like Egremmi or Porto Katsiki)

One thing which would be nice to have is if the hotel would have sunbeds on the beach, not just near the pool. But you can always just go a rent what already exists on the beach.

Overall it was a very good stay, to which I would have no problem going back.
I would definitely recommend this hotel as your choice for accommodation for a vacation in Lefkada.

Catamaran paradise

I would have to agree with most of the reviews that this hotel is prime location for windsurfing and sailing which is only only steps away from the beach. Mr Elias is the perfect host providing excellent service with a friendly smile. The food is excellent and his sister makes some of the best deserts I have ever tasted. This is my 2nd year at his hotel participating in the sailing regatta organized by Wildwinds and it won't be the last. I highly recommend this hotel.

Anulie - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

As the previous reviews state, the hotel is fantastic and Elias an outstanding host. Perfect location on the beach allows easy access to all the water-sports Vassiliki has to offer and is thus the ideal spot for windsurfers, sailors, SUP, wake-board etc. Keep it up!

Mr. Elias the best hoster I have ever met!

Fantastic hotel, very clean and comfortable. Mr. Elias is always helpful and kind. Vassiliki is a nice village, but pretty little and the beaches are not the best in the island..except if you are a surfer! Next time we would prefer to stay in Nidri, and maybe one or two night at Phoenix hotel, just to taste again the DELICIOUS cooking of Mr. Elias restaurant!
We stayed in couple in August 2011, for one week
Would recommend this hotel.

Hotel Phoenix - Vasiliki

This is a fantastic hotel, the owners are very friendly and always helpful. The food is fresh, varied, well cooked and reasonably priced in a clean environment by nice members of staff.
The pool and surrounding areas are clean and well kept with sufficient furniture and space for sun or shade. For the more sporting, dinghies, catamarans and windsurfers are available for hire on the beach a stones throw away.
We will certainly visit again.

Superb location, warm friendly staff - top marks

We stayed in a sea view room, it was simple, clean & comfortable. The courtyard around the pool has a lovely garden & is a perfect place for a leisurely meal.
Location is perfect - 50 metres from the sea, very quiet but an easy trip into the village of Vassiliki - less than 10 mins walk, 3 mins by bike.
The fridge in each room males it easy to store cool drinks.

Best quality value - Faris, France
Best quality value

The hotel's service was impeccable. Mr. Elias was flawless from all sides and more devoted to serving our needs.
During our stay cocktails and coffee in the hotel pool or on the balcony of our room was one of the pleasant hours at the hotel.
The location was very good because it gave us the opportunity to visit the beach of porto Katsiki and Egkemnous almost every day which was the purpose of our visit to Lefkada.
Nor we were cut off from the nightlife of Lefkada after the royal was only 5 minutes away.
