Our stay at this hotel was just delightful. Even though it was the very end of season for all the staff, they were so kind, welcoming and accommodating. The food was excellent, always enough healthy choices available for variety during our 11 night stay - our children (8,6,1) were very well looked after in that sense - the beach and... More

No doubt, Grecotel Palace is a luxury Hotel. The interior decoration is , how to say, a bit outdated , to our taste. Too much is sometimes less in my view. Of course its only a taste matter. As opposite, the exterior , specially the pool and beach area is beautiful and enters you into the vacation mode immediately. One... More

Hotel is clean and comfortable, staff are great (I never had an empty glass) and the local area is beautiful. The beach is clean and very relaxing, I would recommend. The hotel could maybe do with a little update, but nothing major.

Taxi. Take it directly in the airport. Transfer from the hotel is 20 Euro more expensive. Ask the direct phone number of taxi company for all other trips you'll get to save 10 Euro every time (local taxi drivers named receptionists "mafia" because they have to pay 10 Euro only for the phone calls). I had my trip with 2... More
