Lyda Club Hotel - All Inclusive, Gouves
Excellent stay, highly recommended!
Very easy to find, excellent location, lovely gardens, great room view, very clean hotel, absolutely everyone in the hotel was so polite, friendly yet very professional. Great variety in food, both local delicacies and standard European cuisine. Really loved it and highly recommend! Great value and benefits for a 3* hotel!

Very Good8.0
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious with a good balcony view. The three swimming pools catered for all tastes (quiet, swimming and pool games). Nearby towns, places of interest and activities were easily accessible by public transport or facilitated by hotel staff. Overall a great holiday.

Expect to pay for the extras you might expect
The hotel is very clean, but the food is very similar day on day. Also the 'all inclusive' is very restrictive. Nothing is included between breakfast and 11am, and ice cream is only available at meal times. The bar also stops being all inclusive at 10.30pm. The pools are very good, and cleaned regularly. The sunbeds are a bit tatty and a lot are in need of replacement. The food is not really child friendly, and the selection is catered towards eastern european tastes. The rooms are basic, and the beds very hard. The sheets and towels could have been replaced more often, and you have to pay 7 Euros a day if you want the air conditioning activated. All in all an enjoyable stay, but the all inclusive tag is a bit misleading.

Not pleased
The staff was very nice and the rooms were clean. The food was not good at all. This is a all exclusive resort and one of the main reason why you stay at s all exclusive resort. A lot of people were going across the road to eat out and that is not good. I would not stay in this resort again for this main reason. They didn't have many kids activities either.

Very nice budget All Inclusive hotel.
You get what you pay for, this is a budget All Inclusive hotel, the room we had was basic, just what we expect for Greek hotels, the only downside was the mattress was very hard. The room was large with a sink unit and fridge in the corner, very handy. The room was cleaned every day except sunday, the hotel in general was very clean and tidy and we found all of the staff helpfull and very friendly, especially Dimitri behind the bar in the evenings. The all inclusive bar finished a bit early at 10.30pm but the bar prices were very reasonable compared to other local bars. We were disappointed to find the "pool bar" closed, however the limited number of guests probably did not warrant it opening. We very rarely had a wait of more than a few minutes at the bar. We found the food to be very good, can`t comment on the breakfast as we do not use that, but the lunch and dinner both offered very tasty if slightly limited options, the complaints that we heard were from people that wanted typically british style food, and did not appreciate the greek food provided. The beach / local village is a twenty minute walk, although a minibus is provided 4 times a day @ 10am, 12.30pm, 2pm, & 5.30pm. Note to the owner.. another trip around 7.30 or 8pm would be nice. I usually ignore the animations teams at hotels, but I have to mention "Stas" the animations / DJ / entertainment guy. Within a couple of days we were very friendly with him (very unusual for us) he is a funny guy.
