We have been there 3 times since 2009 and we will certainly have it in mind as a serene escape in the future. The biggest plus is the beach right in front of you, all sandy Caribbean look, shallow very clean waters and exclusive for the hotel guests. Next are a series of various draught swimming pools, one of them... More

Although this hotel has a few issues I would love to go back, mainly because of the beach & the hotels location. If you want lively, busy towns, shopping and night life this hotel isn't for you, but to get away from it all, it is perfect!!! I would recommend the all inclusive package as food & drinks on the...

For a family with young children where the parents need to relax this hotel is ideal. There are organised activities for the kids all day like treasure hunts. There are 3 different pools to choose from and the food is very good with an incredible variety.. The staff were incredibly polite and smiling with the exception of some receptionists who... More

On arrival we were impressed but soon came back down to earth when shown to our room. Rooms were very basic and not very comfy at all, sheets were always covered in sand even when we hadn't been to the beech! This was the first year that Thompson have travelled here on an all inclusive basis. We travel at least... More

Dear Laura E Even though the Grecotel group of hotels has worked with Thomson for 30 years, this is the first year that we have welcomed Thomson guests to our hotel and it appears that we need to improve the description of our “Premium Plus” inclusive package in the tour operator descriptions. We offer the Grecotel Olympia Riviera Thalasso with... More

Recommend to everyone! Nice hotel with an amazing service in one amazing beach. Everyone is very attentive and caring to whatever you need. The food is delicious and is located direct on the beach. Plenty activities for my kids and a huge SPA! So go ahead and you won't regret it! )

We had a very nice and relaxing holiday again. It is our 3rd visit to the Olympia Riviera and mostly we enjoyed the beautiful sunset overlooking the sea between the islands of Zakynthos and Kefalonia at the balcony of the Lobby Bar, simply amazing. The sandy beach is maybe one of the best in Greece and perfect if you like... More

I am a 5* traveler 10 years now. I stayed in this hotel a few years ago and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately this year my decision to stay here was a huge mistake. First of all the hotel is in decline. Like it was never maintained the last few years! If you are searching for an elegant feeling, a... More

Dear Traceratio Firstly, may I start by thanking you for returning to the Grecotel Olympia Riviera Thalasso after your previous enjoyable stay. We sincerely regret that this time you felt that we did not rise to the high standards set not only by our company, but more importantly by our guests. I have initiated an inquiry into all the matters... More

Just a week ago returned from a fortnight at this Hotel, and would give anything to go back! This really is a five star hotel- everything is served for you in glasses (including drinks by the pool), you can easily get a sunbed, your suitcases are delivered to your room for you and you are even greeted with a complimentary...
