Good - location was excellent, right on the beach with lovely views of the sea and mountains from the bar. Lots of lovely restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, etc. nearby. Food was fantastic for a 3 star, much better than we had expected. The decor is very quirky (fresh flowers and pebble mosaics are lovely). Bad - Rude and unhelpful reception... More

We both LOVED your hotel. The staff are all so friendly and helpful, and the trouble that everyone took to make each event so special was beyong our expectations. The music and entertainment were truly wonderful, and the presentation of every one of them was very classy, and totally magical. The night of solo Greek dancing was fantastic, but it... More

The location of this hotel is perfect; it is set back away from the road and right on the beach - this is different to others along the same road. The rooms were comfortable and kept very clean - although one downside to this was that every time our kids wanted to have a siesta the maid seemed to be... More

I can heartily recommend a stay at the Golden Beach, and want to point out that it was way nicer than the Thomsons pics made it look. The staff in particular are SO hard-working. Every day they would be working from 6am through to midnight, cleaning, tidying and decorating the hotel, dishing up huge and varied breakfast and dinner menus.... More

Had a lovely stay at the hotel. The hotel was better than expected for the price paid, the pillows were better then normal Greek ones with soft & hard available. Beds not too hard either. Shower adequate & clean enough with plenty of hot water. We paid extra for a sea view, but would have done this had it been... More

My husband and I have just come back from the Golden Beach Hotel and loved it. The reception, which has a great view of the sea as you walk up the steps into it, the bar and pool area are lovely and spacious. The outdoor eating/relaxing area is really nice with lots of flowers and candles in the evening. A... More
