Returned yesterday from Roda having stayed at the Elizabeth apts which we would highly recommend.The resort was bustling although some of the tavernas and hotels were closed.The locals were so friendly and welcoming. Roda is a lovely resort for young families.Our two children aged 7 and 5 loved the Go Karts and also the bouncy castle/ soft play area at Nemo's. The latter is free if you are having a drink at Nemo's...try a frappe, they are delicious. Totally disagree with the other comment that Roda is dead.We drove through Sidari and kept driving! If you want a resort that has a strong English flavour and has been robbed of its "Greekness" then go to Sidari.If you would like a friendly,authentic Greek holiday then go to Roda.
We got back from the Elizabeth apartments yesterday having spent 2 weeks there. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The swimming pool was immaculate and so well designed. Good areas for children and plenty of room for adults. The setting and location of the Elizabeth is great.It is peaceful and scenic but just a short walk from the beach and town. Most importantly the people who own and run it are lovely. Costas gave us a warm welcome. Olga was always smiling and helped us with our attempts at speaking Greek!! Dimitri makes the best tuna salad ever. Helen and the other ladies worked so hard to keep everywhere spic and span. Our two children adored Thanassi who is the best swimmer they have ever seen! Also baby Elizabeth is just beautiful and is always wearing pretty frocks! Thanks all of you for making our holiday extra special.Hope to visit again soon. Penny, Lee, Joe and Pip xx
