We just stayed at the hotel only downfall was the drinks on all inclusive and the payment for beach sunbeds and wifi which in this day and age should be free. Wifi never worked in room unless doors were open. No good for veggies but they did cater when i spoke to them about this. So food good and rooms... More

The staff were very friendly. Hotel is in a good location, plenty to do but not overcrowded. The only downfall is that you had to pay for the sunbeds on the beach, even though they belonged to the hotel.

There was five of us and a 3 year old. On arrival my daughter was put in a so called family room ... She was squashed in and it was quite awful. We complained and she was moved to a lovely room. That made all the difference. My twin room was absolutely fine. It was cleaned daily.. The food was... More

We have been to the hotel 2014 May 11th-18th. Though hotel is promoted as 4 star, it is more 3 star hotel. But! The hotel's restaurant (Ambrosia) is fantastic and adds value to the hotel. We have been to many different hotels in Greece (Mitsis), Spain (H10, Best hotels), Croatia (Valamar), Cyprus and have to say that Jo-An kitchen is... More

Was there from 12th August till 19th August 2012. Average hotel, but quiet. Close to the sea. Below average hospitality, some staff ok, some not, below average services. All inclusive was full board at best, total lack of drinkable water, strictly limited. It seems like owner of the hotel is on cost cutting path, save mostly on guests ... Positive... More

Shaby, worn out, dirty rooms. Old furniture, uncomfortable beds. Food was the same every day. Staff unhelpful and unfriendly. The guests mainly from post soviet countries. The hotel is not worth the money.
