Our family has already visited St. Nicolas Bay for 8 times and we are very pleased with the level of service, as well as the rooms, food and of course the beach. The Hotel is very quite and is a perfect place for family holidays. The town Agios Nikolas is located nearby, so you can make a nice walk in... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in September. The standout is the professional service. The manager is to be commended. Having stayed at a lot of hotels on a 5 week holiday great service really makes the difference. However in this case the resort is also beautiful. Rooms spacious and modern, we had a mini suite. We... More

Overall this is a lovely hotel, with a cosy feeling despite the size and large number of dining areas and pools. It is very well laid out, and the staff really can't do enough for you, friendly, polite and helpful. I would mention in particular Stathis who served us most mornings and evenings The hotel is an easy 30 minute... More

No point in writing about the beautiful location and the hotel facilities as already covered in the numerous reviews. What really set this hotel apart from so many I have visited was the friendliness of ALL the staff, from the room cleaners all the way down to the general manager; everyone had a smile to share and no request seemed...

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you are treated with excellent service. The Manager Mr. Nikolos and staff are brilliant, within a day you are on first name terms. We were upgraded twice as it was late in the season, and they spoilt my wife, especially on her birthday. The rooms with private pools have the... More

This is truly a beautiful place to relax whether it is by the pool or on the jetty, or if you choose a room with a private pool, on your own terrace. The views are stunning and it is well worth getting up at sunrise to enjoy the view. The grounds are amazing. The grounds are well laid out with... More

We were worried that with 4 pools and 4 restaurants this would be a big impersonal hotel but to the contrary. It has the feeling of a small boutique hotel. It is in a good area unlike Maila which is rough. It is a very pretty hotel with pleasing architecture and exquisite views. All the staff without exception are polite... More

The rooms, hotel grounds, beach and pool are definitely 5 star, however during our stay we found the food very disappointing. The ordering of hot food at breakfast is a joke, what you order comes before you have finished your cereal or fruit and is cold by the time you are ready to eat it. We were on half board... More
