3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Not the 5 star we were under the impression of being nor as cost effective as we were told. It was a good 3 star resort with good quality of food and drink throughout the day. Views were superb throughout the resort including our room and made the holiday for us. Very noisy at night time though.

Staff are great especially Maria in the restaurant who looked after us superbly and professionally and nothing was too much trouble. Also Poppy in the adult pool bar was superb. Food was excellent and views superb. WILL... More

My apologies for long review - arrived quite late at night family of 3 - adult couple and teenage daughter. Upon checking in the gentleman behind the desk said one junior suite and one seaview room, to which I replied, no two junior suites. We received our keys and were driven by buggy to our rooms.

When trying to find reliable sun but not straying too far from home considering certain political climates we chose Greece and found the '5 star' CHC hotel for a very reasonable price for end of Aug/start of Sept with a sea view room (all inclusive). Arrival was very late (due to bargain flights! (and issue with plane)) but a friendly... More

We went the last week of October 2015, and it was not crowded, which was great. Room 78, superior sea view room, did not disappoint, with it's spacious layout and a fab view. The hotel staff are lovely and helpful. The food was good. Looked fresh everyday, and they have a different food theme every day. That said, it is... More

We recently returned home after spending two weeks in this lovely hotel. The hotel is surrounded by the sea on three sides and so the views are just stunning from almost every aspect. Our room was quite close to the main facilities and was overlooking the cove and beach. We were fortunate to have a swimming pool which we shared... More
