All whitewashed walls, stone terraces and bloom-filled grounds, the little Hotel Alfa is as pretty as they come. The whole place is surrounded by greenery, giving it a real back-to-nature feel. Plus it’s bagged itself a great spot, just minutes from the beach and the town centre.
Setting aside, it’s the restaurant that steals the show here. It was only built a few years ago, so it’s got a swanky, up-to-the-minute look. Basket weave lights hang from bleached wooden beams. Cream walls sport funky paintings and nautical artefacts. And floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the grounds. Food-wise expect eggs, cereal and fresh fruit for breakfast. Mediterranean classics with contemporary twists are the order of the day when it comes to dinnertime.
Elsewhere, things are kept simple and relaxed. Take the bedrooms, for example. Whitewashed walls and wooden furniture are contrasted with pastel soft furnishings. And air-conditioning, fridges and satellite TVs make things that little bit more homely. Step into the lobby and it’s more of the same, with armchairs and sofas creating a relaxed feel.
Outside, the swimming pool takes centre-stage. It comes with a separate kids’ section and is surrounded by a large palm-dotted terrace. Plus there’s a poolside bar, which is ideal for snacks and al fresco lunches – coffee, cocktails, ice-cream and pizza are all on the menu.

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.
Enjoy a coffee, exotic cocktail or an alcoholic beverage at the poolside bar. If you're feeling peckish, grab a snack and take advantage of the al fresco dining, on the veranda overlooking the pool.

Just Love This Place!
We stayed at the Alfa this June (Our 2nd year there, and our 3rd year in Parga) and we will be back at the Alfa for June 2014. I have been travelling to Greece for 29 years and had never returned to the same place twice until I visited Parga. I enjoyed all my trips to Greece, but there is something about Parga that just captivates you the very first time you see the town, and you have to keep returning......... On our first trip to Parga we discovered the Senses Restaurant located at the Alfa Hotel and it became our favorite place to eat, authentic Greek food with an upscale twist in a beautiful setting. So, it just made sense to stay at the Alfa for our future visits! This hotel has a great large pool, it is super-clean with beautiful gardens, a cozy bar and sitting area and really nice rooms. The Dimakos family who own and run this hotel are just wonderful, they are so dedicated, hard-working and extremely helpful, truly nice people. I love the location of this hotel, just on the outskirts of town and a really short walk to beaches and everything else. There is a small grocery store right across the street from Alfa, run by a British lady and her Greek husband, they are very nice, friendly people who remembered us when we returned for our 2nd year. If you want to holiday in a breathtakingly beautiful place that still feels authentically Greek, Parga is for you, and the Alfa is the perfect place to stay!More

Lovely hotel in lovely Parga.
We have just returned from a weeks stay in this hotel and it is one of the nicest we have stayed in in Greece,and we have stayed in quite a few .The room and bathroom were a decent size, as was the balcony which overlooked the pool. Unfortunately we didn't get much sun being at the back of the hotel but we were out most of the time anyway.One small negative was being over the kitchen we got some clattering of plates till around midnight ,but it didn't spoil our time here. The rooms,,grounds ,pool,shared areas in fact everything is spotless! It was the last week of the season and Parga was closing down for the winter but all the restaurants( that were still open! ),shops and local people were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble.It was an absolute pleasure to spend our days strolling around this beautiful town with its lovely bay and behind that the tiny cobbled streets full of interesting little shops and eateries.There were many,many repeat guests to Parga and the Alfa Hotel and I can see why.It's a diamond of a place. We travelled with Thompsons Holidays and they too were so efficient.Finally our rep Jackie,was AMAZING and had so much local knowledge she was fascinating. Thank you to everyone who was there with us,it was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely place and share it with such nice people.More

Good Greek Hotel
I'm not sure if these reviews help with the Triapdvisor Certificate of Excellence awards - so I thought I would just add a quick review, but it's all been said before! Our room was comfortable and very clean - if I had to provide a negative all I would say was that our particular room was quite small as was the balcony, but it had everything you needed, although the mosquito net did fall off on the first day and it stayed down of the rest of the week, which was a shame because it looked really pretty! The family and staff who own and run this hotel are very polite and professional. There is obviously a lot of repeat business at the Alfa and so return guests get a little extra tlc. I have to say of all the places we have visited and stayed in Greece, and it's been a few, the breakfast service at the Alfa is superb! I couldn't believe the choice of hot and cold food and it was obvious that so much of it was home made and delicious!! I would definitely recommend this hotel and perhaps we will have the opportunity to stay here again on one of our return visits to Parga!More

Stayed at the Alfa Hotel Ist Sept to 15th Sep what a diamond place I can only describe my holiday as one wonderful experience. The atmosphere at the Hotel was great you had different nationalities that had been coming year after year that gave it a homely relaxed feeling and the guests were so friendly it was such a joy. The Hotel, restaurant, rooms, pool, gardens, grounds, were spotlessly clean and Marianthi Lazarus the owners, Demitrious and the entire staff worked so hard to make sure you enjoyed yourself. Parga itself is as pretty as a picture it has something for everyone the people so warm and friendly it was joy just to wander about chatting to the shop keepers just letting the world go by. Thank you Parga and the people of Parga Marlena Chepstow U.K.More
