The harbour town of Latchi (or Lasti) is close by. The harbour has a mixture of fishing boats, yachts and small craft for rent. Over looking this are approximately five restaurants that specialise in fish. Not the cheapest, though neither the dearest place to eat but certainly one of the prettiest. Back to back with these are a row of shops, which include three mini markets. These are well equipped.
There is construction work in the area on the land, south of the road between Latchi and the Hotel. Construction is ongoing, with a developer building bungalows. However, it is screened off and the visual and audio impact is minimal. This stretch of the road has ‘road humps’ which deter ...

Nightlife is minimal. There is a ‘Beach Bar’, which again was quiet. Opposite this was another bar, which appears to have given up and closed. No discos here! About a 5 minute drive to the South/East is the town of Polis. It appears to be a standard semi modern town, however there is a short pedestrianised area, which has bars and restaurants. These are a bit cheaper than Latchi however there is no drop in the food quality. In all the places we ate in both Polis and Latchi, we never had a bad meal once. To find this pedestrianised area in Polis, drive from Latchi, enter into the town of Polis and turn left prior to a bridge, which crosses a dry riverbed. Follow the road as it makes its way first down then uphill. Keep an eye out to your left, you’ll see the parking area. Transport to and from the Hotel was by taxi and mini bus. The taxi driver must have been a fan of formula one racing, however he certainly lacked the skills. Still, it made for some small talk with the other guests.
This hotel is rated by First Choice as two star plus. Maybe so, but the service and quality was five star plus. What a great holiday.
