Me and 2 friends stayed at this lovely hotel for a week in July. Best "greece" hotel I have stayed at. The standard was very good and everything, incl the shower, felt really clean. Felt like a resort hotel. Right at the beach, pool (great for families), simple but good breakfast and really nice staff. Clean rooms everyday and the... More

Hotel was clean, room big for our 4 member family. View wasn't so nice but we didn't ay for sea view. Personnel was extrimely nice, especially when our aircon broke down. Breakfast was quite nice. Nothing special but included also some local treats. Beach sets cost extra, Not much but for hotel customers they should be free... Beach was good... More

I have been using this hotel for the third time, and quite like it more and more. It's not the best in the region but it has what you need, and it's very close to the beach which again is great :-) The beach bar is excellent. Sun beds are a bit expensive at €4 each.

While the rooms are just ok and food is good rather than great, the friendly and well-humoured staff makes this a great place to stay. Also well kept garden details, some positive entertainment and good location adds to a recommendable total impression!

We stayed one week in Ideal Beach with friends. Our room was studio, just normal, nothing special. Not the beautiest one, but good for us, we only slept and took showers in our room. Everything worked, there were fridge, safety box, small tv (which we didn't use), hot water (took a little time to get that). If you want just... More

The hotel is located right next to the beach, and there`s a swimmingpool shared with the hotel just next door. There`s also a bar/restaurant on location. The reception is... More

We spent 6 days at Ideal Beach resorts main building (hotel room). The hotel area is very clean and tidy and is located on the beach. Sadly the rooms at the main building are very noisy. All the noises from the corridor comes through the door. That dont really bother so much at daytime, but at night times its really... More
