I traveled with my 3 children and close friend and her children (ages 23 - 14 years) for 2 weeks mid August. Both parties booked with Thomson. I will say that for the first time I was not impressed with the rep and did not receive the level of service in previous holidays. After a sales meeting (the so called... More

Well the truth is that this hotel is a nice place to stay if you are a package holiday maker. We were individual travellers so for us it was just not the place to stay. The good points are that it is far from the noise and hustle of Hersonissos, the restaurant staff is great and the food was relatively... More

Stayed here for 11 nights and would recommend it to anyone. All the staff are amazing so friendly and make you feel truly welcome. The hotel is spotless the food is lovely and varied could not fault it. The evening entertainment was a bit hit and miss but the themed evenings and outside acts were excellent. For us it was...

We stayed here with friends for a week in June. The hotel is lovely, rooms excellent, extremely clean and could not find a fault with anything. The receptionist Nina who greeted us plus the porters who took our cases were so friendly and helpful. Mark, Athena and the restaurant staff were very good. The food was amazing, plenty of Greek...

A real holiday for us as a 60+ couple. Nothing too much trouble for the staff - always smiling, happy to chat and oblige. Nothing to fault - on the edge of town away from noise yet so convenient with regular bus on main road, at the bottom of the hotel grounds to access tourist locations etc. in both directions....

This is a good hotel in a nice position just above the resort,with an easy path down to beach and shopping area.. Rooms clean and well maintained, if a little outdated . Excellent buffet food, very friendly staff and pretty well kept grounds. Large clean pool, though sunbed space might be at a premium in high season. Would stay here... More

We love this hotel...have been staying here 2 or 3 times a year for the past 8 years. It has very friendly staff (especially the restaurant Manager and pool bar staff). The hotel has so many choices when it comes to the rooms, food, entertainment and shop. I find this place a great quiet hide away as it does not... More

We stayed here for a week in mid October and arrived on a Tuesday evening which was when the Hotel had their Greek night. We caught a bit of the entertainment out by the swimming pool which was a nice welcome. Unfortunately we had to fly out the following Monday so we didn't get to experience the full Greek night,...

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
