“Perissa can be recommended for a week-long chill out,...”

Written on: 28/08/2007 by KeBe (1 review written)

Good Points
Perissa beach not too crowded in mid August.
Staff at Spyridoula Apartments are friendly enough , and rooms are kept meticulously clean, but no English is spoken. 'Yazz' taverna on seafront, although not the most salubrious looking place, is very good quality and value for food, especially breakfast, with some tasty authentic Greek dishes for lunch/dinner, with friendly and attentive staff .

Bad Points
Spyridoula Apartments are very basic and too small, with particularly uncomfortable and too-small bed (I'm no giant); bathroom was also very small with a self destructing shower! The close proximity of apartment doors and shared balcony area means little privacy.
Food and service at the 'Charlina' restaurant on seafront was very poor indeed; they gave the impression that they were only interested in is taking money without a concern for customer service or food quality, hoping that the usual British reserve will prevent people from complaining. Don't stand for it! Or better still - Don't go! There are enough good quality restaurants in the resort for most tastes and all budgets for you to not be ripped off.

General Comments
Perissa can be recommended for a week-long chill out, with plenty of bars and restaurants to give enough variety. However, if you're staying for more than a week, hiring a car or quad bike or booking an excursion might be an idea to see the rest of the island, although a couple or three days would be enough to see pretty much everything there is to see; it's not huge.

Not much for young children to do in Perissa, unless they're happy splashing around in the sea; there's a water park that consists of a pool and a couple of slides. The sea shore is quite rocky, so getting into and out of the sea can be a bit tricky, and the black volcanic sand is scalding hot on bare feet. Perissa isn't a 'party' resort, so there aren't gangs of males/females making drunken nuisances of themselves. Generally, a pleasant, enjoyable stay at a reasonably attractive resort.
