From the moment we arrived all the staff did everything they could to make our holiday a good one. The rooms were cleaned every day and the entire hotel complex was... More

My boyfriend, his family and I spent a week here and we loved it. The rooms were always immaculate and the food delicious. The buffet fed around 300 guests and there was something for everyone's taste. It was carefully prepared and included samples of Greek cuisine. The best aspect was the bar staff. They're really friendly and talkative with lots... More

This hotel is lovely and in a perfect location, peaceful and right by two clean beaches with clear waters and only 10 minutes walk into a traditional but up beat town. The food was great, however we wished the drinks selection for all-inclusive was better. There was two elements that let our trip down however. On the website the rooms... More

We have recently returned from staying at this hotel as a party of 44 for a wedding taking place in Plaka. Everyone was staying for different lengths and durations and the hotel weren't very organised with check in, people who weren't all inclusive we're given wrist bands which were then embarrassingly removed during lunch service by the restaurant manager.
