Dracos Aparthotel has a tranquil setting, tucked away among hills carpeted with olive groves on the outskirts of Parga. There’s a handful of quiet tavernas just up the road, and Parga Town is about 20 minutes’ walk away. This small hillside town, set in a peaceful bay, is home to a castle and 2 small sandy beaches. From the harbour, you can catch boats to tiny islands like Antipaxos, which has fewer than 150 residents.
The hotel looks like a quintessential Mediterranean escape, with stone-clad walls, terracotta roofs and wrought-iron balconies. Inside, things are more contemporary, with a focus on quality. The lobby, for example, has marble floors and sleek leather sofas. And bedrooms are simply decorated with polished stone floors, pale colour schemes, and pendulum lights. Bathrooms have a luxurious feel thanks to marble quarried in Greece, India and Morocco. Studios, meanwhile, come with a little more space and the addition of kitchenettes.
The pool is set in a stone terrace with views of the surrounding hills. There’s a pool bar here serving a buffet breakfast in the morning and simple snacks like salads and sandwiches throughout the day.

Great location for a relaxing holiday
We stayed 8th to 22nd September 2013 - had a lovely 2 weeks relaxing. Bar staff and snack bar we're very nice and helpful - the owner kept out the way and left them to it! Rooms were kept immaculate by the chamber maids - faultless! Nearest restaurant is Perivoli, about 5mins walk into the olive groves - excellent! No real tavernas nearby, so a walk into Parga town every day is a must - about 15mins! Take a left after the football ground and you will have a nice walk past a few restaurants and eventually arrive at Kryoneri beach (pebbles), here you will find Golfo Beach restaurant - very entertaining on music nights - the owners are real characters! Kryoneri Restaurant (very good) is on the first corner before turning right and onwards into town and the town beach (gravely). Here you will find numerous restaurants along the promenade and harbour front - too many to mention, but all very good. Bacchos and Zorbas are always the busiest, but you will find so much more if you continue further into town (a huge anchor marks the centre) and up the steps to the castle, slowly-slowly! Our favourites: Kastro, Torros; Maistros - beyond the castle and higher still: Stefanos (fish restaurant - great views); Sakis (excellent street restaurant - no view); Romantica (very friendly chap - breathtaking view of Valtos beach). The Green Bakery is great for lunch in town! Water taxis from the harbour take you to all the best beaches - you can walk to Valtos, and from Dracos, you can walk to Lichnos (favourite) about an hour through the olive groves (very worth while) - may want to take the water taxi back to Parga! Parga is a lovely town and perfect holiday resort - we shall definitely be back - after checking out the other hotels in the area, we will more than likely choose the Dracos!More

Relaxing Fortnight at Dracos
Stayed at Dracos from Sept 15th to 29th 2013 and had a very enjoyable fortnight in and around Parga. We were very lucky to stay in room 200, which has the highest and most private balcony in the whole complex and is a very nice split level room layout. We had originally been allocated to room 206 which is at the rear of the older building, which is a very good, large room but has a small balcony which is overlooked and gets very little sun. The management were happy to move us even though availability was limited and we were thrilled with the change. All the staff at Dracos are very nice and very professional, the bar staff were friendly and polite whilst all constantly working very hard to keep guests happy. The chamber maid deserves a special mention too, rooms were kept immaculately clean and tidy. The whole complex is very well maintained.The pool area is impressive and there are usually plenty of beds available, although some guests still insist on reserving beds while they go and do something else. During our first week we observed someone regularly reserving six beds which remained unoccupied for some time, rediculous. But no fault of Dracos. Located a short walk out of town but still close to several good restaurants (Perivoli and Dokos are excellent) and some small supermarkets (Kordas is by far the best). Parga town is great, loads of restaurants and bars, very nice little shops and the castle is worth a visit. Also worth a visit is the olive oil factory museum with guided tours conducted in English. Lichnos beach is by far the best in area but is a good walk away, well worth it though.More

Stayed here 11th August 2013 for 2 weeks, rooms were lovely, we were in the new block on the ground floor and other than a couple of days when we had kids running past our terrace it was lovely and peaceful. We went self catering and had to ask for a few extra items for the kitchen area but these were delivered quickly with no fuss. Rooms were high standard, very clean, daily maid service, hairdryer in bathroom very good, showers super, loads of hot water and so overall we had no issues. Staff are all super and really friendly, everybody went all out to make sure we where happy. Nothing negative to say really, other than towels on sunbeds but that was being sorted as we left. More sunbeds are probably needed for next year but I think Dimitris was getting that sorted. Lots of advise from the staff about places to go and eat, we ate out most nights as its only a short walk into the town. A lovely holiday and we will go back sometime.More

Great Hotel and Staff
Stayed with sister from the 1st to 8th September this year. Everything about the hotel is first class, the rooms, the pool area and also the staff. Especially Vicky at the pool bar, worked sooo hard and always a friendly happy smile and always so heloful. ALso everyone staying there during this week was so friendly and had some lovely chats. Especially Eve and Isabelle two lovely children who made our week, with their funny stories.. I would also add that no one at all reserved a sun bed but just put their towels on beds when needed, which was a welcome change to places I have stayed in the past. Out of all the places we saw there this definitely was one of the best and would definitely return. Even if is a bit further up the hill.More
My wife and I stayed at the Dracos in Parga the first two weeks in September. The weather was wonderful, We spent long, hot sunny days by one of the many the nearby beaches, reached by water taxi or long walks. Lichnos was our favourite beach -try the Coral Beach Taverna specials. The hotel is great, excellent staff very friendly with superb service skills. Viccky, made a big impression with my wife. A very nice person, she particularly enjoyed a nice cup of tea every morning at 8, brought over to our poolside sun-beds The room cleaning and towel changes the best we have ever had. A room close to the pool was very handy we also had a nice view across the mountains. A good sized balcony was put to good use for our evening glass of wine but, we were stung, on several occasions, therefore insect spray is a must here. I would rate the breakfast here the best in Parga for value and taste. At six Euros for a full continental and English breakfast cooked to an excellent standard you can't go wrong. I don't have any negatives with regards to our stay at the Dracos hotel. I would only mention, that, the walk down into Parga town was made difficult due to the pot holes, many scooters and other road- vehicles. A bit of an irritation for me. The usual litter strewn road sides also niggled me - no need. Why don't they make Parga Town Pedestrian only?More
