I had a very beautiful stay beginning of August in this hotel.First of all, the location and the view from the rooms is spectacular. A wonderful choice, polite staff, doing their best to serve you at any time .Excellent breakfast, amazing a la carte menu, and great variety in the buffet. The pools were great and so many that we...

Dinner is self service,offering not that many different dishes, but they are all good! And they are not repeated often so don't miss it Most of the 14 days we had problem deciding... More

The hotel is located beautifully, with a great view from the rooms (with sea-view) and from the restaurant over the Aegean Sea facing the Turkish coast. Compared to the sea-view rooms, the rooms facing the surroundings are quit disappointing Therefore I will strongly recommend to book a room with sea-view. Breakfast is nice, with a fine choice of fruit, bread... More

Stayed here early july 2015 and had a maisonette room which was immaculately cleaned and very spacious. During our stay we found all staff helpful and very friendly. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and there was no rush to get a sunbed at any of the pools and we enjoyed using the Spa pool area which had comfortable... More

This was my third visit to Lesvos and definitely the best. My partner and I Lorrie decided to book here after visiting the spa last year on passing. I had e-mailed Maria the CEO to ask for a sea view room as recommended by earlier reviews. When we arrived we were shown three different rooms which were all good and... More

This hotel is not four star. More like two or three. And three because of the outside pools. We booked this hotel and were bitterly disappointed. The breakfast is terrible unless you enjoy tinned peaches and fruit cocktail. Given that Lesbos grows lots of fruit it is hard to credit serving this rubbish. So after day one we avoided breakfast.... More

We checked in this hotel after we were disappointed by two others in the same area. We were welcomed although we did not have a reservation. The hotel is right next to the sea and the view from the dinning area was simply wonderful. Our room was spacious, in two levels, with a small interior staircase. There was a comfortable... More
