This place has one of the best pools in town and comes with a chic à la carte restaurant, too.
This family-run place has won itself a high rating on TripAdvisor. It’s small and cosy, but within its leafy grounds lies one of the biggest pools in Parga and a modern Greek à la carte restaurant.
It’s a 5-minute walk down to Piso Krioneri beach, a sand-and-shingle cove that’s good for snorkelling. And it’s double the time to Parga’s centre where you’ll find bars and tavernas at the harbour and old town.

Make a splash in one of the largest pools in Parga. If you'd prefer to unwind, grab a sunbed and relax in the shade under a parasol, on the large palm-dotted terrace. And so the little ones don't feel left out, they have their own separate section of the pool.
5 Senses Greek restaurant*
For breakfast and dinner. Sample the many outstanding dishes by night at the 5 Senses restaurant. With its modern and chic surroundings, you’re able to experience a variety of Greek cuisine, with a Mediterranean twist.
The little ones have their own pool to splash about in, just next to the main pool.

Off to Parga and the Alfa Hotel again in two weeks. This will be our 12th time, always the same hotel. It is an excellent hotel, clean, friendly and nice. The owners are very good friends of ours now. It is a lovely place to go for two weeks a year to have a fantastic time and to meet up will all our friends whom also return to Parga on holiday. I would highly recommend Parga and the Alfa Hotel for families of all ages, and couples. It is never disappointing!!!More

Excellent hotel execllent holiday
Just returned from our first visit to Parga (June 2014), no doubt there will be more. What a great friendly hotel, with helpful/pleasant staff e.g took cases up and down the stairs without be asked (bad back). Always clean, both inside and by the pool. The sun loungers were changed this week and the new ones are comfortable. Adjacent 5 Senses restaurant was more upmarket and a pleasant change from the normal tavernas. We were in room 36 which is over the lounge, a good sized room but suffers from noise in the mornings which starts at around 7:15 am, I assume this is the cleaners.More
Yet again another brilliant holiday at the Alfa Hotel, there is nothing I can say bad about it, wonderful rooms, wonderful food, wonderful staff, the Dimako's family ensure your stay here is everything it should be. The only thing I am not happy about is coming home, thanks for a tremendous 2 weeks.....More

Great place to stay
I had always wanted to go to Parga! But that was in the days when I was younger and fitter! So when choosing a hotel in Parga we read all the reviews on Tripadvisor and chose the Alfa because many said that it wasn't too long a walk into the town and that it was fairly flat. I suppose things like distance and hilliness are subjective. We did walk into the town on an almost daily basis (downhill) and this was about a 10 minute stroll. We resolved the problem of going back up the hill by using taxis the cost was just under â¬5. The hotel itself is based on a fairly quiet road. At the rear is the local school and a view over to the hills. The front faces the road, but as I say, it is fairly quiet. Just over the road is Gregs mini market. Only small but handy for any basics. As other people have stated, rooms vary in size. We were in room 32 which was on the upper floor and it was fairly small but it had everything that we needed. It was good to have a fridge. The air con is free. A nice touch on arrival was a flower on each bed and a sweet each on the bedside cabinet. Wardrobe space was vast with plenty of hangers. We found the beds really comfortable and as others have stated the rooms are spotless. In the bathroom was a half bath with a shower overhead. The shower was adequate but would have benefitted from a new shower head I think. There was a hair dryer in the bathroom and a soap dispenser over the sink. On the balcony, apart from the table and chairs there was also a pull out clothes airer. Very useful for wet costumes etc. That is the room and location dealt with. Now for the food! Breakfast is served in the 5 Senses restaraunt A lovely room which is mostly inside but with a few outside tables too. There is a reasonable choice of hot and cold food. There was always cold meat and cheese. Always baked beans. The other 4 warm dishes varied from day to day and would consist of such as scrambled eggs, fried eggs (nice eggs), little sausages, bacon and also a sort of cheesey bread. There were also cereals, yoghurt, (delicious) fruit and jams. Also cake, croissants and bread. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the bread. It was OK but I have had some really nice bread in Greece and this was a bit of a disappointment. We stayed on the half board option so we had our evening meal in the hotel most nights too. The way this works is that each evening you are offered a choice of 2 starters and 3 main courses. Only one desert is offered but changed each evening as did the other food choices. The service in the restaraunt was spot on A small bottle of ouzo is immediately placed on the table together with a bottle of cold water when you sit down. A small amuse bouche is then placed on your table along with some garlic butter and tatziki. We tried all the house wines, red, white and rose. My fav was the white but all were good. Food was good. It was presented in a very modern way. We never went away feeling hungry. I left it until the last evening to have rice as an accompaniment only to find out it was delicious (I am not normally a rice fan) and I wished I had had it earlier in the week! We did forgo the hotels evening meal on one occasion. The only downside of half board is that it ties you to the hotel. Half board is generally a good option for us because of the walking but we ventured out to the taverna just up the hill from the Alfa for change of scene and a more traditional atmosphere. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious. It is a very popular (busy) place. The bread there was lovely!!!! A further point worthy of note for other travellers who are not so physically fit is that, bacuse the street that the Alfa sits on is narrow buses cannot get down it to drop people off What happens is that you leave your transfer coach on the main road and walk downhill (uphill going back) to the hotel. A good 5 minute walk. Your cases are ferried to the hotel in a truck. This all works in reverse on the homeward journey. Recommendations if things to do in Parga: do go on the Little Train trips. Well worth the â¬8 that they cost. One goes to Ali Pashas castle and the other goes to an old watermill. Both had a little up hill stuff at the end if the journey which I just elected not to do. This did not detract from what was a very special experience. Also, we went by taxi (â¬50 return) to Amouddia where there is a lovely, soft sand beach which is shallow for quite a way until you find it deep enough to swim in. The beaches in Parga look lovely but are not the best sand if the truth be known and (although I haven't been in the sea from any of them) it sounds as though you don't have to go out very far to be out if your depth. Great for some, but not for me. I know a lot of this review is done from my perspective and is about my mobility problems but I think there are numerous reports already on Tripadvisor singing the praises of the hotel with regard to its cleanliness and food. They are all true so no point in repeating them.More

Hospitality at its best
We have returned many times to this great hotel and the whole experience is first class - so much so that we have already booked for next year and have requested a repeat performance from the family owners and staff who continue to provide a great welcome, a spotlessly clean and comfortable hotel with the '5 Senses' attached restaurant providing a nice change from the traditional taverna cuisine. The bar area has been modernised together with the patio seating and the well maintained garden and pool area are now complimented with new, soft and very relaxing sunbeds. We just cannot wait to return - a hotel which refuses to disappoint in any way.More
