The welcome, facilities and accommodation are superb. The pool is enormous so even in high season there will be plenty of room. The staff were friendly and helpful and if there was a complaint you might find the food, excellent as it was, a little strange. They do declare that the cuisine is biased towards Greek style but we did... More

Just returned from a week at this hotel having booked a late deal. Of course the weather was fantastic which made the holiday just that bit better. The staff at this hotel are, I think, the best I have yet come across. They are friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The hotel IS looking a bit tired but then it... More

Steep walk down to a rather pretty beach and shops etc. Staff at this hotel were absolutely fabulous, nothing too much trouble and a particular mention to the two... More

Echoing others' comments, we found the staff here very friendly and very helpful. Initially we were allocated a room at one end of the hotel with a service entrance underneath the balcony and the view of the sea impaired by a concrete driveway, a wall and a wire netting fence. We asked if we could have another room and the... More
