Hi Sue, have thought of staying at the Diana Palace hotel in Argassi next year, is Argassi that awful? Will be going to return this year to Roda, cant wait we love it. Thought we would try another Greek island.
I stayed in Argassi some years back. Beach was very narrow, just a strip of shingle, one street full of bars restaurants, not much doing there really. We got a taxi everyday to Kalamaki beach and also got the bus to Banana beach, much nicer. Saying that,I did like it there but would probably opt for Kalamaki or Tsilivi next time.

I stayed in Keri for a week and Old Alikanas the second, not to be confused with Alikanas.
Keri is lovely, loads of tavernas spread out along a quiet beach, little supermarkets, a diving school and a short boat ride away, their own caves, no need to spend a fortune visiting the blue grotto.
Old Alikanas is very quiet, a very narrow shingly beach but at the top end a fishing harbour area with a sand and shingle beach, loads of rock pools for kiddies and good snorkling for adults. Small supermarket and two or three tavernas. A lot of the properties overlook the small allotment style cultivation next to the sea. I loved it.
A couple of miles drive along the coast takes you to a totally unspoilt and unsignposted large fine white sand beach which the locals try and keep secret. Nothing there except a man selling fresh fruit so takes eats and drinks. Water there is crystal clean, in fact it hosts the official water sampling station for the area
Sadly the only holiday company who went to Old Alikanas was Direct Greece and now they have no separate brochure and Direct Holidays have dropped Old Alikanas it seems. However, places like the Photographers Apartment and penthouse are available to book direct.
