First off lower your expectations, me and my partner stayed in club Lyda for a week and well it was disgusting, nothing like was advertised and certainly not worthy of 3 stars (not even worthy of one) we arrived at around midnight and were shown to our room, a dank basement room which was unbelievably filthy and the bed was...

What a fantastic place! This family run hotel is in an idylic location, especially if you want to explore the island. There is a bus stop 2 minutes away, just hop on and you will find the drivers and conductors very helpful. The closest beach is approximatley a10 minutes walk away, however, there is a free bus that will take...

I'll start this by saying this is the only review I have ever written for a hotel and I'm not usually inclined to do so but I do not want anyone else wasting their money here. Please, go somewhere else. We arrived at 11:30pm and were shown to a run down basement room-- if you are shown to a basement...

Went there in 2015, cant say this was this was the best experience. Hotel was filled with mosquitos everywhere, should have been fumigated everyday, felines near food all the time. Beds were raised on a wooden platform which we used to knock our feet on. Constant buzzing in your ears with mosquitos surrounded around your ears and eyes. The rooms...

Dear client, Reading your review, I wondered why someone waited to write his critique of a hotel where he passed as he claims so badly I would like to inform you that our hotel meets all the hygienic conditions and this is evidenced by all the necessary official documents And surely what you describe does not represent our hotel I'm...

Couple aged 24&30. Lyda Club is a very authentic looking Greek hotel. The free shuttle bus is a little crowed and if you're unable to walk long distances the closest beach is a little out of range. However, for 3.4euros you can get a air-conditioned bus to a gorgeous secluded beach 10 minutes away. The all inclusive food was slightly...

We had a lovely stay here and although the mattress and pillows were past their best . the hotel was OK ,and the staff were lovely. In general the food was average and plentiful .although my friend is gluten intolerance we managed with the food served. A better understanding of allergies to food would be an advantage to the kitchen/...
