Kos: 24th August, Smaragdi Apartments, €398!

Kos has some of the best beaches in the Greek islands. It has a cosmopolitan capital, Kos town, but is also full of medieval columns and castles at every corner! You will be staying at the highly rated Smaragdi apartments in Lambi. This is a quiet resort so it’s the perfect place to chill out by day. However if you fancy the buzz and nightlife of Kos town, it is only five minutes away by taxi, or a twenty minute walk. You can sip a cocktail overlooking some mega yachts at the harbour, or wander through the old town and enjoy some shopping or some great night life – the choice is yours!

Gran Canaria: 11th July, 4* Gloria Palace Amadores Hotel, Half Board, €865!

Perched on a cliff with stunning views of the sea, and only 300 meters from the beach, it is not surprising why the Gloria Palace Amadores Hotel and Thalasso has been a favourite with Irish holiday makers for many years. Boasting one of Europe’s top thalassotherapy centres, the spa is just one of the many amenities this hotel offers.

Zakynthos: 13th August, Katarina Palace, €514!

I spent a week in Zakynthos a few years ago and loved it. There is so much to see and do you will spoilt for choice. A visit to Navagio or ‘Shipwreck Beach’ is a must, it is one of the most photographed beaches in the world! For me though, the beauty lies in just chilling out on Zante’s beaches and enjoying some tasty Greek food in local tavernas. The popular Katarina Palace Hotel is  situated in the pretty resort of Argassi, which is ideal choice for a relaxing break away. Highly rated on tripadvisor, it has a swimming pool on site and is located beside the beach and resort centre.

3* Sellas Hotel B&B ,€478

4* Delfinia Hotel, Half Board, €773

I’m a big fan of Greece, ( you have probably guessed!) and I loved our holiday in Corfu. I actually stayed in the Delfinia Hotel a few years ago, it has a superb location. Located right on the beach with the perfect bar for sundowners, I could have quite happily stayed there and not budged for the week. 

If you are looking for something a little cheaper, the Sellas Hotel should not be overlooked. Located in the pretty resort of Sidari, close to some great bars and restaurants, it receives lots of repeat guests and has great reviews on tripadvisor.
