Wrapped in olive groves on the edge of Parga, this place 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. 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.

Make a splash in the pool, set in a stone terrace. If you'd prefer to lie in the Mediterranean sun, grab a sunbed and relax overlooking the exquisite surrounding views.
This octagonal number is at the far end of the main pool, with a shallower depth for little legs.
If you’re feeling peckish then head to the pool bar. You’ll be able to grab a buffet breakfast or a light snack, for example salads or sandwiches, throughout the day.

We have just spent a blissful 2 weeks at the Dracos Hotel on our first trip to Parga. After much research I chose the Dracos based on TA reviews and it lived up to expectation. We were allocated a room in the "new" block at the front of the hotel on the ground floor (305). The room was at the end of the corridor (so no-one walking past your door), very spacious with loads of wardrobe space plus hangers, a lovely bathroom with hairdryer and huge walk in shower. The kitchenette area as others have said was quite limited, but we just had cereal or fruit and yoghurt for breakfast and it wasn't a problem. The balcony area outside was nice and peaceful, no views as such as you were looking at the hedge, but again no-one walking past your room so nice and quiet. All areas of the hotel were spotless and the rooms cleaned and mopped daily. Pool area was lovely with views of the mountains whilst sunbathing/swimming. WiFi was quite intermittent and you could only get it in or around reception area. The walk into town took approx. 15 minutes to the pier area, however if you wanted to eat up at the top then add another 15 minutes to your walk. It was good exercise though and you could mix and match the walk each night by walking the "back way" past Perivoli Restaurant and the 5 Senses, or the top road - this way it never got boring or tiring. We took a boat trip to Paxos with the Marco Polo which was a brilliant day out and also went to Corfu Town for the day from Parga which we got a good deal from an agent in town for 63 euros for both of us return whereas everywhere else was charging over 40 euros per person return. We hired a car for a week too and went to Sivota, Lichnos Beach (our favourite), Sarakiniko beach and Acheron River. We didn't have a bad meal in our 2 weeks (some slightly better than others), but our favourite was the 5 Senses in the Alfa Hotel it was beautiful. Other good restaurants were Hellenikon, Stefanos, Hani. We did eat at Aegis which is currently No.1. on TA but we couldn't work out why it was? We absolutely loved Parga and will definitely look to return one day and will choose the Dracos again.More

First visit to dracos and parga
Just returned home from parga Greece what a lovely place parga is very Greek the locals are extremely friendly and helpful.we stayed at the dracos hotel.This is certainly a well maintained property with good accommodation.the pool area and bar are the main areas The pool was lovely plenty of sun beds for all.The bar served really excellent bar snacks some of the cocktails were a bit on the pricy side.The bar staff were fantastic Vicky and Spiros were always friendly and would go the extra mile to please the guests nothing was too much trouble.dimiti was the owner he was always there also although he was quiet type of guy but once you got to know him he was fine. He was open to suggestions as to what he should do to improve the menu at the bar. My only down side was the steep hike up to the hotel from the main road as I have had a recent knee replacement it was difficult for me to get both up and down the steep hill resulting in me having to get a taxi up the hill ( 5 euros a time ) This could be rectified if the hotel had a minibus to take residents into the town centre and back again on a regular basis.We would certInly recommend this hotel to anyone but would mention the difficulty for those less able due to the steep hill. Also would definitely recommend a visit to PargaMore

Love this hotel :) x
Sorry it's taken so long but thank you guys for the most fantastic honeymoon ever. We stayed here the last 2 weeks of August and from the start everything was great, the journey to the hotel is one of the prettiest I've ever travelled, there was a friendly welcome waiting for us when we got there and then the icing on the cake was that we got the room we wanted right at the top of the building. Nice and private with lovely views from the balcony. The photo's don't do the hotel justice, it really is a pretty. The room was huge, split level and kept beautifully clean for the whole 2 weeks. The pool area and gardens were kept spotless even though the hotel was really busy. All the staff were friendly, the bar staff especially so. Always at hand with my afternoon sangria, not very greek but verrrry nice, the Apple martini's weren't bad either. It's in a great location and an easy walk down to the town for the tavernas and restaurants. Don't know what else to add other than we've already spread the word around friends and family and we can't wait to come back. Big hugs to you all Nikki and SteveMore

4 visits and still outstanding
Just returned from our annual visit and it is still a perfect place to relax, swim and read, the staff are really genuinely attentive and the cleanliness beyond reproach. No point in me mentioning the rooms, people know about the quality and cleanliness, or indeed the town, people know their favourite places to dine, but if anyone is interested Aegis is really really worth trying. September proved a little cloudy and thundery( rather unusual I believe) but as the Dracos is so popular to get into beggers can't be choosers , next year we managed to book June. Hope all the staff have a chilled relaxed Winter as they all work extremely hard during the 6 months of summer they deserve it.More

We'd definitely stay here again!
After reading other reviews we decided on the Dracos and really enjoyed our stay here. We got to the hotel late evening and it was great to have a complementary food hamper consisting of freshly baked bread, olives, feta, yoghurt, beer, wine, tea, coffee etc. That was a really nice touch. We were told by our rep that the harbour (town) was about a 20 min walk and because we were shattered, ate at a local restaurant near to the hotel. The food was good, but the next day we regretted it after realising its about 10 mins walk to the harbour with loads of restaurants on the way! Just walk down the hotel path, turn right and you're nearly there! The hotel was clean and the staff were great, from the girls on reception to the really lovely guy in the pool bar and the manager were all really friendly. The pool itself was gorgeous. Comfortable loungers etc. We went a little out of season so it was quiet and relaxing. The only fault I'd pick out was that the beds were uncomfortable, but not enough to put us off staying again. Our only regret was that we hadn't booked for two weeks!More
