We stayed here for the first two weeks in July and loved every minute of it. We were in room 222, which had a fabulous view around the whole bay and over to the mainland. Rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. Breakfast was plentiful and so peaceful to sit looking at the fabulous view whilst drinking good coffee and chilling. Plenty of well spaced out sunbeds, the pool was a gorgeous temperature and the sea clear as anything (beach shoes advised, as sea urchins and also a pebbly beach). A short walk to a smattering of good tavernas and the friendly Art Club Bar, where Spiro really looked after us. We couldn't fault anything with this hotel, fabulous staff and special shot out to Dimatris and Fortis (excuse the spelling) who worked on the beach bar and to our lovely cleaners Dina and Maria, who really looked after us. We will be back again, just fantastic.

Room tip: Room 222 had very good view around the whole bay and was nice and peaceful

The hotel is placed near the sea - you can reach its beach after you cross the lawn, about 10 meters. The rooms are spacious and very clean (towels are changed daily), the beds are excellent, all the furniture is nice, the air conditioning is free.
The breakfast is amazing, with a lot of sorts of cheese, ham, sausages; of bakery and bread; with several sorts of olives; a lot of fresh fruits etc.; it is served until 11 am. A very pleasant surprise, very much more than the typical breakfast at a Greek three star hotel.
The bar is open until late in the night and offers simple meals and all kind of drinks at reasonable prices.
Several taverns can be easily reached; you can go on along the sea, to the left, for "Kanioria" and "Seven islands"; or along the main street (to the left), for "Ionian fish". In my opinion, "Seven islands" is the best; "Kanioria" - the most aesthetic, and "Ionian fish" - the most convenient (large portions, low prices).
The bus stations (in both directions) are just at the entry of the hotel. A lot of booklets with touristic information, in several languages, are available at the reception desk (also the bus timetable).
The hotel has a subtle and discrete beauty. Four columns, painted in Minoan brown-reddish color, disposed rectangularly, link symbolically the four parts of the building. In the middle of the rectangle there is a tall Mediterranean tree, like an Axis Mundi of primordial houses. Huge ficus trees embrace the external, circular flight of stairs. They are not only esthetic, but also produce a fresh atmosphere and give you a sense of exuberant presence of nature.
Maybe the most agreeable thing (to me) was that all the personnel, from the people at the reception desk to the maids, were extremely kind and helpful, in any moment of the day or of the night you meet them.
Highly recommended.

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at this lovely hotel in the quiet, unspoilt fishing village of Ligia. If you prefer a peaceful and relaxing holiday away from the crowds, this is the place. There are plenty of tavernas within easy walking distance (our personal favourite was the Kanioria Family Tavern) and the livelier resorts of Lefkas Town and Nidri are both just a short bus journey away (from the bus stop just outside the hotel).

We paid extra for a larger room with a sea view, which was worth it as the view from our balcony was beautiful. There was a good, plentiful selection at breakfast and it was lovely to sit having breakfast whilst looking out to sea, watching the fishing boats drift by. You can also have a simple lunch here of either Greek salad, club sandwich or toastie, which was very useful when we were in our swimwear, lounging by the pool, and didn't feel like getting dressed to walk into the village for something to eat. The pool area was lovely and private, away from the road and looking out to sea.

But the best thing about the Porto Ligia Hotel was the friendly staff, who were always so welcoming and helpful, from the gentleman on reception who wrote out the local bus times for us (as the printer wasn't working!), to the hardworking ladies who provided breakfast and lunch and kept our room spotlessly clean.

We would definitely stay here again - the peaceful location was perfect for us.

Room tip: It's worth paying extra for a larger room with a sea view, as the view is stunning.

Spending short holiday in this part of Greece, I discovered a very special corner.
Location is gorgeous : the building lays in front of the sea and just few steps on the grass divide you from the beach .Breakfast is delicious , with fresh products.
Staff is kind and disposable. Armony between nature and architecture, cared by friendly people!
