I was happy to finish my week at Golden Bay on Friday as I have to say that the service in the Taverna restaurant was amongst the worst I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. I travelled as a solo guest and although I used the Hotel restaurant every day I found myself constantly having to ask for service.... More

This has been upgraded to a really good family hotel apartments place with charming and friendly staff who really go out of their way to be pleasant and give good service. There is constant and late hours bar service with kitchen service food on demand. The only downside - unless you want a quieter holiday - is the position in... More

With the weather so good and the food in the hotel and the surrounding tavernas so good as well, the last thing that you would wish to do is cook in doors so the... More

This was our second visit to this wonderful small hotel with friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble. Rania and her team go out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. We opt for half board at a cost of €15 a day and its well worth it as we love breakfast by the pool and our evening... More

When booked we read a lot of reviews about The Golden Bay Hotel and the reviews were correct. It is a fantastic hotel, the staff are so helpful. The manageress makes the hotel, she works day and night and is very hands on. She always has a welcome smile and is always there to help. The rooms are kept clean... More

Rania and her staff definately went the extra mile to make our stay special. Nice pool deep enough to play in, small section for toddlers in safety. We stayed in room 106. The stairs looked a bit daunting for us at first at 66 years. We were immediately offered to change to a ground floor. However the view from the... More

They are well appointed by Greek standards including a microwave & toaster. The food in the on site taverna is very good and reasonably priced. Prices in the bar are no... More
