I visited Amphoras twice this year and I had great time on booth occasions. The hotel has great location by the sea with its own beach. There are few swimming pools which is great fun for kids and adults. Every day animations and play ground for kids make it excellent location for families. Fantastic place for snorkeling and diving with... More

The hotel good in total, we have nice holiday. the location of the hotel is near to the down town. the beach is not good enough for the kids to swim, so we stay all the time on the pool. The food is okay

I spent 5 nights from 29 August 2015 , as a total the hotel is very good but the fatal mistak there that they allow the guest to swim in the pool with full clothes dress, shirt and jeans without any objection from hotel managements

Beautiful hotel, All rooms have sea views, beautiful irregular swimming pools, pretty well-kept garden. The hotel grounds are very extensive, there is plenty of space, the hotel is huge, the restaurant also. Food ok always something good you can find. Rooms cleaned thoroughly every day left a few dollars tip. We had 10 minutes to Naama bay (taxi)
