Review of Surf Hotel Vassiliki
I stayed at The Surf Hotel in Vassiliki on a girly holiday but since having the best time ever I would not think twice going there with my family. The best bit about the holiday was the fact by the end of the week I was a competent windsurfer from someone who from the start of the week was had no windsurfing skills and actually was quite nervous in the water. The views are simple stunning and it was literally a few steps from the hotel room to the beach. We had 6 days of windsurfing tuition whereby you were taught in a small group with people of the similar capabilities. The tutors were friendly, approachable and put even the most anxious at ease. You were aware at all times that if you felt like you were getting into difficulties you raised your hand and a rescue boat would be out to you immediately. The winds were gentle in the morning while the tuition took place in the shallow crystal clear waters. In the afternoon when the winds grew stronger you could take the opportunity to practice what you had learnt but for me it was the ideal time to soak up the rays from the beachside sun loungers and watch the experts show off their moves. Our room was fairly basic – a twin with ensuite shower and toilet but perfect for our needs. You really do not spend any time at all in your room as there is literally something to do throughout the day in the resort. During our weeks stay we took advantage of a paddle boarding excursion and a mountain biking adventure which ended in Vassiliki village with an ice cream pit stop. The Sky Bar lounge next to the pool is where you order your breakfast, which is included in the package price. There was free Wi-Fi connection here. The Driftwood Beach Bar was the perfect spot for lunch with a wide selection of salads and burgers. Or if you wanted to venture out and taste the local cuisine then Vassiliki centre is situated just 20 minutes walk along the beach from our hotel. It is a very pretty harbour side village with lots of colourful Tavernas which buzz with life until late in the evening. This was the perfect holiday for me and one I will have promised to take my family to experience together.
