Me (20) & my boyfriend John (24) stayed at Tassia Studios 17th-24th July 2008. We were abit worried about staying here after reading the reviews but soon realised it was a nice place to stay. Kostas is a nice, genuine guy who makes you feel welcome and even remembers your name!! He explains his rules and what he expects of you, as long as you stick to them you will be fine He is very helpful and suggests places for you to visit and restaurants to eat in. He advised us to eat at "Paradise" which we did and the food was really good. Kostas even gave us free shots! John and him enjoyed chatting about football! The room was reasonable for the star rating. The maids were in every day but we our bed sheets and towels were onlychanged once throughout the week which was abit disappointing It got quite noisey in the early hours of the morning when large groups came back from the clubs but i guess theres only so much Kostas can do. I would recommend the air-con because the rooms do get pretty hot (7 euros a day). The pool bar was nice and the food was lovely. Its abit of a trek to the beach especially in the heat we were in (44 degrees) but a taxi only costs 6 euros and you can get these called for you at reception. The nearest shop was only a 5 minute walk. All in all i would recommend this hotel but not if you wana be noisey and annoy people as Kostas does not stand for this. If you show him respect he will show you respect
Me (20) & my boyfriend John (24) did the jeep safari on our last day 23rd July 2008. We booked through Thomas Cook, which is quite expensive (52 euros each) but it was worth it. Our driver was Alan and he was so funny, really made the day enjoyable. We learnt so much about the island, we stopped at several different spots including the shipwreck platform. The views are just amazing. The actual jeep ride is hilairious, we were right at the back so we got the brunt of it on the back roads but was just so funny. You stop for drinks and lunch. They ask you to fill out a questionnaire at the end just so they know what you thought. I would highly recommend this day trip to anyone and everyone unless you get travel sick .
We visited this beach twice & loved it. We got sun chairs outside the Cherry Bar. The sea was lovely and warm. It was so shallow for so far out which is great for kids. The water is so clear that we could see the little fish swimming near our feet. Theres no pebbles either which is a bonus, i hate standing on stones with bare feet !! Its just pure sand at the bottom of the sea too which is great. Theres plenty of places to eat and drink on the sea front. This beach is miles long so you wont have trouble finding a spot. The only downer was the guys trying to sell you fake stuff, and the massage woman but a polite no will make them go away (or just pretend to be asleep like i did ) This is one of the best beaches i've been to.
Me & my boyfriend visited this beach on our Jeep Safari. Its a pebble beach so make sure you have some sort of footwear or you'll be in pain The sea was quite cold here and not very shallow so be careful. Its not very big either but i dont think many people come to this beach so it shouldnt be a problem finding a spot, it wasnt for us. Theres boat trips that you can go on from here too.

Me & John stayed here for a week in July 08. The main strip is pretty long and nice in the day time with plenty of shops. Kalamaki Road has some of the best restaurants. Angelos mini golf is funny if your ever in the mood for it . The Beach is lovely. At night it changes and is very lively, full of drunks! Its good night life & has some good bars. I wouldnt really recommend Laganas for families with small children, i think Kalamaki or Argassi are quieter. I would def recommend to young singles looking for a good time. We were lucky to have a hotel no where near the nightlife
