Rooms: Firstly, on all of the websites we looked at the pictures of the rooms were much nicer and styled completely differently to what... More

After reading some of the reviews we were slightly nervous, as I am a fussy eater! How wrong to be nervous, the hotel, staff and good were excellent! The accommodation was fab! We had a really good time here and I would recommend it! The only downfall for us was the lack of evening entertainment, the roof top bar has... More

Just back from a lovely week here. Had booked standard room but on arrival were upgraded to private pool room - fantastic! Completely private. Food lovely, just enough choice and different everyday. Be careful, drinks very strong!! This is very quiet hotel, other than a Greek night no entertainment, so don't go here for lively holiday. Exactly what we wanted... More

Very disappointed when we arrived at the hotel. We were sold this hotel as a 'luxury hotel' but that is far from the truth. The decor is dated, the rooms are less than adequate and the food was tasteless. So much so we ate out 4 times out of the 7 nights we stayed there. Their beds are the most... More

They arranged a Taxi to take us to another hotel about 10 minutes drive away, for the night. we were collected the next day by taxi at 2pm and taken back to the hotel. We were then up graded to a family... More

My visit with my family 6-12 june 2014 was not what I expected. The staff was exellent but the beds were very bad. I spoke with the manager and other staff, but the problem was not solved. There was no interest from anyone to solve our problem. We were only told that change of room wold be extra charge, but... More

We picked the Solimar Hotel because the reviews indicated that it was a nice relaxing place with good food, beer and wine. That was exactly the case and we had an excellent and relaxing week. The food in particular is excellent - a bit like going to a really good, traditional Greek restaurant each day. And the white wine was... More
