On first arrival to the hotel we were disappointed as we have stayed in 5 star but was more like 3 star.. Furniture out dated and little faults in room small rust in bathroom and cracked tiles. We went as two sets of couples with children and took a night to change our rooms so we could be next door... More

We had a really good time in this hotel. Everything was amazing, even if the furniture is not so modern. But who cares about furniture or tv on vacations? Very good food, wine and drinks. I was surprised with beer which was quite ok comparing to other greek lagers which are not drinkable. Food was quite diversed every day, including... More

My husband and I paid 3500 euros to stay at this hotel for two weeks. Some aspects of our stay were fantastic but others simply fell short of standards expected. I will start with the positives :-). If you require a total get away from it all holiday this is the place for you. The hotel is miles from anywhere.... More

The rooms were clean and the air condtioning worked well in tempratures that were over 35 degrees every day! The food was very good specially evening buffet,service was very good and the... More

Reviews are so mixed on this hotel so thought I'd give a detailed one for anyone thinking of booking. We went for a week all inclusive in June, 4 adults and paid approx £300 per person. 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
