I traveled with my cousins, and we were a group of five. Initially, we wanted a self catering hotel because they were cheaper, but as it was our first girls holiday, we were a little apprehensive about self catering as there was a potential risk of running out of money, leading to starvation. We had seen pictures of the hotel... More

After reading the mixed reviews for the Phaedra Beach we decided last October to take a chance and booked a 14 night holiday for May 2014, after all some people appeared to have had an enjoyable stay and the location looked pretty good. When we arrived after a delayed flight our coach transfer pulled up at 1.30am to a closed... More

Phaedra Beach Hotel is the perfect place for people who want to have some quiet moments, ‘away from the madding crowd’, on an absolutely exquisite sandy beach.

“If you are not party guys and prefer going to bed early in the evening avoid rooms in the bungalows or on the sea-view side of the hotel – too noisy because of the night programme. On the other hand, however quiet the new buildings might be, they lack any view.”
