Dracos Aparthotel  

Wrapped in olive groves on the edge of Parga, Dracos Aparthotel has a peaceful setting and beautiful mountain views.

Dracos Aparthotel has a tranquil setting, tucked away among hills carpeted with olive groves on the outskirts of Parga.

The hotel looks like a quintessential Mediterranean escape, with stone-clad walls, terracotta roofs and wrought-iron balconies. The cherry on top is the good-looking hill-view pool.

Friendly Staff

We visited Parga as a family of four with two daughters aged 7 and 10. I have to admit I was slightly concerned about the walk into Parga after all the comments on Trip Advisor but unless you have physical difficulties that restrict your ability to walk any distance I wouldn't be worried about it at all. In fact, I quite enjoyed the stroll down into Parga in the evenings and there are plenty of good restaurants along the way. Yes, the walk back is up hill but hardly steep. As for the hotel, we found it very comfortable but what makes it are the staff who are all extremely friendly. The children loved seeing the tortoises and feeding them some leftover lettuce leaves, which the staff kindly provided. The pool and bar area were very clean and provided a great place to relax if not travelling around the local area. We hired a car for two weeks which we found to be invaluable, as we were then able to explore the various towns and beaches in the local area. If you can do so, I would highly recommend hiring a car as well. Not that you need to if you wish to spend the majority of your time in Parga but there are some fantastic beaches around that would not be within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed Parga itself, although in the height of August it was busy. I have to say, I haven’t been to a resort before that was quite so busy as Parga in terms of just walking around the town in the evenings. However, we rarely struggled to get into any of the numerous bars or restaurants. I can imagine it would be even better outside of the peak season, which unfortunately we cannot do just yet. Finally, I think the only thing missing from the hotel would be some evening entertainment options. I am not suggesting discos or anything like that but perhaps a BBQ night, to help bring the residents together more and give them an option to eat in the evening. The food options at the hotel are more for lunch and I wonder if having the option to stay at the hotel one night might be appealing to some. I know one night we were enjoying the company of some other families that were also staying at the hotel and we didn’t get out to eat, instead having to resort to pizza. Overall, I would highly recommend the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. More

m4tthall,

Clean and comfortable...A real pleasure!!

This was our first time in Parga and we decided to go for 2 weeks in September. We booked the Dracos Aparthotel through Thomsons as it looked nice in the brochure (on line) and was very competitive on price. (Julie the Thomson Rep is really helpful) We were a little nervous when we first arrived on the coach, as the hotel lies at the top of a short track that looks a little rough (typically Greek) and the coach cannot get right up to the hotel, so you have to get off and walk the final 100m to the hotel and they carry your bags in a small van up to the entrance for you. However, we did not need to worry, as the hotel is lovely and lies in clean and tidy grounds, with nice shrubs and plants around the hotel. The entrance is very smart as is the pool bar. We were actually staying in the small annex opposite the hotel next to the pool (all within the hotel grounds), but do not worry as the rooms are of the same standard. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and a nice size bathroom, and the décor was smart and contemporary. Being an Aparthotel there was a small kitchenette area that had 2 ring hob, kettle and sink, that was just enough to make a simple breakfast or a packed lunch. If you are wanting serious cooking facilities then this is not the place, but if like us you like to do yourself a morning cuppa and a light breakfast then it will be fine. Utensils were cork screw and knives and forks (no bread knife though). Air Con 40 Euros per week and Safety Deposit Box 10 Euros per week. What really impressed was just how spotlessly clean the rooms were, and they were serviced every day, with clean towels every other day and clean bedding about every 3 days. Bathrooms were also spotless with a good shower and good supply of hot water. The staff were really friendly and very helpful....could not fault them. The only word of caution is that Dracos is a 10-15 minute uphill walk from the resort centre and if you are of normal fitness this is not a problem as although it is uphill it is not steep, but the final 100m up the track is a little steeper....my wife does have health issues and she found the walk difficult....for me as someone of normal fitness found it no problem at all. Would we recommend the Dracos....DEFINATELY!! As long as you are not disabled then you should book it with confidence Bruce and Diana xxMore

Nice complex but steep hill to it

The Dracos Aparthotel is very nice. The rooms are kept clean and are quite large for Greece. The self catering facilities are a bit basic. There is a kettle but no toaster or microwave. Air con is €40 per week and safe is €10. The staff are all very pleasant. The only drawback is the steep uneven road up to it. We arrived in a thunderstorm. It had been torrential rain for 30 minutes and the road up was like a river. The "river" came over all our shoes and I only had mules on. If it had not been for someone who came to meet us holding on to me I would never have managed to get up the hill. The luggage was taken up in a van but the coach does not take you up. We are both in our 70's so I would not advise anyone with any walking difficulties to come here. If you are young it would be different. There is a decent size pool and bar restaurant. The drinks are a bit expensive compared to down town. Parga town and harbour are very nice. The town has a lot of small streets and alleys but again some of them are steep. There is a castle on the top of a hill. The beaches are a bit shingly and pebbly. There is a nice full day boat trip to Paxos, Anti Paxox and you visit 3 caves all for €15 on the Vicky 11.More

Lovely,friendly place and people.

Our first time in Parga and we couldn't have chosen a nicer place to stay than here at the Dracos. I had E mailed Christina at the Dracos before we arrived a few times and always had an immediate response which I feel is always a good sign. From other reviews you will see that you are dropped off at the bottom of the road and your cases are taken up to the hotel by car. We actually had a lift up to the hotel in the car, when we walked into reception I realised I had left a small bag in the car which contained all our money,passports,paperwork, everything! No problem said Christina, in reception, she went on the phone and within 5 minutes the car returned with our bag and everything in it! There are not many places in the world where that would be the case. Christina is a lovely girl but all the staff are the same, Vasso and Giota,who work at breakfast times and through the day are always available to help or have a little chat,Spiros who runs the bar and pool area,very friendly lad,Valentinos who helps with maintenance,Dimitris,the manager,all of them, lovely people who made our holiday so fabulous. I'm not going to review facilities at the Dracos as so many people have already done so,all I'll say is that Parga is a beautiful place to holiday and our stay at the Dracos more than met our expectations with everything that it had to offer.Thank you again to everybody at the Dracos. Alex and Linda.More

Anglesey56,

Most satisfactory

Hotel consists of two buildings standing on both long sides of the pool area, and on the short side there is a bar / lunch and breakfast serving. Apartments are mostly placed on the sunny side of the buildings, but the main building with a reception has a few rooms facing back with evening sun, which is nice if temperature lies around 35-40 °C. So rooms in main building have balconies facing the pool area, and rooms in building 2 facing gardens and have pool in the back. Rooms are large, there is a table and chairs on the balconies, beds are hard and somewhat too hard for my taste, good kitchenette with everything needed, WIFI in rooms is of different strength depending on where the room is placed. Elevator in main building. Small turtles have a nest in the garden and walking freely in the grass. Room 200 on the top floor has a balcony with a sun-bed, where you can sunbath unseen of others. The bar serves good breakfast and easier lunch like club-sandwich etc, fresh and clean; maybe after one week we felt we would like to have more variety in food serving there. Pool is not large but enough, sunbeds and unbrellas enough for everyone. Hotel lies some 200 meters right up the hill from the road Preveza-Parga, and some 5-800 meters south from the centre of Parga. So it is a long walk to the sea from this hotel, the whole area is much hilly and if you have difficulties with walking it is best to hire a car. We did. Parking is available by the entrance. Overall the hotel is good and calm place to relax, pleasant staff and good service.More
