Just back from 11 nights - thank god for aircon cos it was HOT! Everything pretty much the same. Tried the new places, Barollo? very nice food, more international than Greek in my opinion, Mythos more traditional and good value, Hideout - really nice bar with great cocktails - maybe a tad pricier than some but well worth it. 180 degrees - probably now the best place to watch the sun go down. Great place with a really good vibe about it.
Everywhere else much the same as always, no rubbish issue this year (well not in San Stef anyway) and village in general seemed a bit busier than last year. Brusko, Zorbas and the like nearly full every evening. Prices hardly changed from last year as well.

Thank you :) Just arrived this morning. Tui, got to airport about 11.15pm. We were lucky, first off plane, so quickly through passport control, but the queues were building behind us. Waited for cases about 15 minutes. Elisseos at Silver Moon ordered us a taxi, took us 50 minutes to resort, airport was manic, so glad we had it. Some have said they have changed the route in and taking 2hours!!The fare was 55 euros. New toilets in baggage reclaim very big and very clean. Anyway it's hot today, so just chilling!!

Just checked and TravelFX is still slightly better. But it depends if you're counting the thousandths of a euro!

Keep us updated Karen and have a great time.
We always get a taxi to and  from the airport it's a great hassle saver.

So, it's another hot day, someone told me the  hot weather they've had in France and elsewhere is coming this way :o Last night, we watched the football at Silver Moon, then went to see Spiros at Bar 38, he had a nice crowd in there, finished off at Condor, they had the Jersey Boys on, but we didn't see them. Village seemed busy.We have reacquainted ourselves with our holiday friends, always a pleasure to see them all. :)

what's the best/reliable taxi service to use? We had a 3 hr 15 min Tui coach trip last time from Airport in Sept 2017, stop offs in Corfu Town and Sidari before being the last off via Arillas. Never again.

We asked Elisseos at our apartments to book ours. It was from the travel shop on the main strip. 50 minutes and €55.

So last night we walked to the Nafsika to eat, lovely quiet meal. Came back to the main strip, fairly quiet. Went to see Spiros in Bar 38, very quiet in there, then went to Condor of, also quiet. Finished at Athens bar, where most people were. Don't know how true it is, but some friends said bookings were 40% down, could it be the uncertainty over brexit, people's jobs etc?
