Information and help please / Romanza to beach...
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:49:28 PM »
We have some friends staying at Lofos Apartments, up by Romanza and will want to go down to the beach.  I understand there is a pathway, by the Romanza.   How easy/difficult is the walk up and down? I would assume it will be steep! Thank you!

Out and About / Beach!

Just to say, beach was very disappointing again, down cliff end. Very dirty and loads of rubbish around. Sun bed end was kept beautifully clean though and much wider this year, so that's a good thing.  :)

Out and About / Rubbish on the beach
« on: May 13, 2016, 01:42:59 PM »
We have a friend staying in San Stefanos at the moment, for his first time and he said there is a lot of rubbish on the beach. We always go to area near cliffs and we are very disappointed each year, to find this too. The area around the sunbeds is always lovely and clean and I presume that the people who look after the sunbeds keep it this way. There are a lot of people, including young families, who use this part of the beach, it's a shame they can't clean it up. Mentioned it to elliseos where we stay, last year and he was going to mention it to 'someone', obviously it fell on deaf ears! Such a shame, as this could put people off returning.

Where to stay / All booked up!!??

 We have just got back from San Stef and had a fantastic holiday as usual!!We have met up with lots of our friends and made new ones too!  Had the great pleasure of meeting Jimbo and the lovely Gillie, when we were at the Nafsika one day.  Also saw them a couple of evenings. It was lovely chatting to them both and will look forward to seeing them again hopefully! On our first trip to the beach, we found it very narrow from Athina and along to Havana.  We found ourselves having to walk in the sea past the single row of sunbeds to get to the far end of the beach, which was and still is, much wider.  That has now improved considerably.  The sea was beautiful down the far end and you could paddle out to a sandbank, the sea was like a tepid bath there. It has been very hot and caught a few people unawares (including myself) as I was poorly for a couple of days, so just be aware in the heat.  Hippopots has explained everything else to a 'tee'.  Second week was pretty busy, with most bars and restaurants  bustling at some point.  As always, we ate in the Nafsika every night, (apart from when I had heatstroke!) and enjoyed every meal.  Speros and the team excelled themselves, as usual, to make our experience a very good one.  Thanks to them again. I have to say the food was always beautifully prepared and presented and of course, very tasty.  Lamb kleftico was gorgeous.  John enjoyed the shrimp on bruchetta starter and the garlic mushrooms. The locals, as always, were pleased to see  all us returnees and looked after us, as normal, so no change there!  Hope everyone has a good holiday and we shall be booking up very shortly for next year!!

Information and help please / Thomson's Shops
« on: July 26, 2014, 03:00:10 PM »
We have just booked our 2015 holiday at our local Thomson shop, which we have used for many years.  They always match the online price.  Now they have to charge a £25 booking fee for each holiday.  I suppose this is another way of reducing staff numbers!!  We book 3 holidays a year with them, so it makes sense for us now to book online.  We always like to shop in our local town, as there are already many shops closed. Talking to them yesterday (short of staff) they think they will eventually just become an advise centre.  Good old Thomsons!

San Stefanos news and views / Time for my review!
« on: July 13, 2014, 04:33:11 PM »
Just arrived back Friday from our 10th holiday in San Stefanos.  As always we had a lovely time.  The weather has been fabulous with 1 heavy downpour on Thursday evening.  Met some lovely forumites.  My first mention has to go to the gorgeous Mary and her friend Pamela, who were staying at Stamatis, as were we. They were great company in the Condor, with Mary on the Karaoke, she has a fabulous voice. We thoroughly missed them when they left, but we hope to see them again next year.  Mary introduced us to the lovely Tony and Linda and we send them our best wishes. Our second week was busier than the first and we found there to be more young couples and families around, which is good for the village.  We always eat at the Nafsica and the food was as good as ever.  Spiros and his staff, as always, were very friendly and attentive.  Most of the restaurants looked busy.  Condor had the usual tribute acts (if that is your thing) Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams and a very good singer (who looked like Vinnie Jones!) who did a motown night.  Elvis was on at the Silver Star and George Michael at El Greco.  Bar 38 had a fantastic Latin dance night, which I enjoyed, as that is my 'thing'. It was full both Fridays.  Bar 38 still has the local teenagers in and whilst they are no trouble, it does put some people off from going in there.  They all tend to congregate on the front patio, where most people like to sit, so sometimes you have to sit inside which we don't want to do.  But as Spiros says, they are his future drinkers........? The sunbeds were full most days as there is an area of beds that are no longer there.  The tide was in on a number of occasions, but this didn't affect us, as we go down the 'bottom' end, where the beach was very wide. There was some seaweed near the sunbeds, but this seemed to be cleared daily.  Nothing much else has changed and prices, we found, were much the same as last year. We are just looking now to book for next year!

Hi everyone!

Just joined this very helpful site and it is great to get first hand updates from you all! Thank you!  We have been going to San Stefanos since 2004 and have always stayed in Stamatis Apartments, as we are again this year.  Apartments basic but clean and comfortable, studios for 2 are very small so wouldn't reccomend them.  Spend little time in the apartment, as we are on the beach most of the day (that is if there is one this year!)  Tom, the owner, has always gone out of his way to be helpful and friendly.  We normally have a bite to eat there when we return from the beach and the food is very good!  Favourite place for evening meal is Nafsika.  Great rustic food and much of it home made by Spiros' Mum.  Spiros can be a bit grumpy at times, but hasn't put us off going.  Have tried a few other places but tend to drift back to Nafsika as it is very quiet when we eat, which is about 10pm.  Anyway, must go and pack bikinis now. Keep up good work and I will report any interesting news on here when we return on 18th June.  Happy hols to all!! ;)
