Nice main restaurant and good selection of food. Caters to all tastes and certainly will never go hungry! All inclusive includes ice cream of many flavours, and drinks till 11pm. Help yourself drinks at... More

One of the things that drew us to this hotel is the location as there are plenty of shops around and plenty to do but quiet. Not much for kids which is great for us wanting a quiet holiday. Food was good but not enough greek food to try. The only downside for us was the fact you had to... More

1) Food was OK (for sure, I ate ice-cream every day), bars also, but no free drinks at all after 23 and no famous coctails before 23 in all inclusive (like pino colada, only local alcohol), so you have to pay for good drink but bartenders are really good in their profession. 2) Animation was good, the only one animator...

Room lovely, check in fine, staff friendly, apart from one barman who wouldn't serve me as I had a drink! Nothing really for kids to do, sunbeds went early. Food was fantastic for a buffet, but drinks are what let this place down massively. Watered down and warm. The beach bar was the best bet but this closed at 6.... More

We booked our holidays few months ago. We were worried regarding a couple of reviews. The hotel is totally fantastic. It has two large swimming pools. Our room was recently renovated. It was very clean, equipped with a large LCD TV, a DVD player, Daikin airconditioning. The maids were changing out towels daily. We were given additional towels to use... More

For adults looking to take it easy this is an ideal location, very clean with great services and staff. Glad I didn't take the kids tho, as not much for them to do. Food was brilliant (even for my gluten free diet) beaches were very rocky, but ok if u buy beach shoes! X

Silva Beach is a great hotel. I have been several times to Hersonissos and is the only place which is located downtown but you feel like being on the country. It has been recently renovated. Rooms are spacious and very well equipped. There is a daily animation program. Restaurant has a huge buffet and a great choice of deserts. There... More
