Beautiful hotel, spotlessly clean, staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed "across the road" pool is nice and big, plenty of sunbeds. We stayed slightly before season started and found it to be lovely and relaxing. The bridge to beach did not bother us and we found it very handy as the road is quite busy. Well worth paying...

First of all I have to say that my experience with Iolida Beach Hotel is from June 2012 – I marked June 2014 because, otherwise, I cannot add my review. I hope that the changes from that period of time are not very important. The hotel is a sort of complex with facilities from both sides of the main road... More

This is a nice place for few days to spend with your kids provided the sea is calm!! I enjoyed this hotel very much besides the fact it was not that easy and safe to cross the road to go from my room to the restaurant and the sea!! Negatives: Change two lifts + cross one bridge + many stairs!!!!

To start with, I want to clarify that the beachside hotel is only part of the whole hotel. One section has indeed a seaview, but you have to cross a street via a bridge to get to the beachside. The beachside is only available through Scandinavian travel agencies. We booked through Ving and were there end of August, beginning of... More

This is a very modern hotel with pool and friendly staff. Do be careful of the name as the hotel is called Iolida "beach" we assumed when we booked that the hotel was on the beach side however the hotel has two parts, one on the beach and one on the other side of the road connected by a causeway/bridge....

Great hotel for family vacation. It is better not to opt for the all-inclusive or half-board since the food quality is below average. Although we paid for it, we used to go out for dinner. The wi-fi connection was poor as well. The location of the hotel is great since there is a super-market next to it. Our room and... More

We visited this hotel with my family in June 2013 only to discover the air conditioning was faulty. We normally would persevere without it though the room felt like a sauna and thats no exaggeration. We were told that their were no rooms available. After a bit of complaining they managed to relocate us in another room. Apart from this... More
