Don't go to Glyfada (or Paxos, come to that) if you want a glitzy, flashy, all-inclusive package holiday. Go to Glyfada if you want a week of total peace, relaxation and good food and really good value for money. Paxos is a stunningly beautiful island which has remained largely unspoilt because of a lack of water (meaning that it cannot support large tourist complexes) and because you can't fly there. Glyfada surely has one of the most striking vantage points on the island and has amazing views out to sea from both of its swimming pools. You have to be prepared to walk up and down quite steep hills to get from most villas to the pools, bar and restaurant, and also to be able to explore much of the island on foot (Paxos is hilly). You can hire boats from Loggos at around 35 euros/day and explore some of the more remote beaches and the smaller nearby island of Antipaxos. Breakfast and lunch is included in the price of your villa - both are substantial - and dinner is served on some evenings by the pool. On the evenings when dinner isn't served, Spiros will usually take guests to and from Loggos or Lakka in the minibus. Spiros, Doreen and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The reviewer who wrote comments about not flushing loo roll down the toilet and the fairly basic nature of the villas clearly had no understanding of Paxos as an island. It is a peaceful haven of a place. Mykonos it is not.
