We just got back from 5 days in that hotel and it was our second time there. First of all there is a huge difference between that time to last time, because last time my wife and I were alone at May and it was awful and now we went with our kids and it was fantastic. The food is... More

Just back from 10 nights in the sun. This is a good hotel, well maintained, excellent food, stunning views, well-run and friendly staff. The location is a highlight, perched on a rocky promontory with wonderful views. There's plenty of choice in the restaurant; lots of fish, meat, pizzas, pasta, gorgeous bread, salads, everything you can think of really. We enjoyed... More

Have just returned from a last minute trip to this hotel. The hotel was reasonably nice, obviously not 5 star. We had quite a good time in general as the weather was fantastic and the resort is quite large and interesting, and the food is just about ok for what you pay, but what really ruined it for us in...

First off we had a good time and enjoyed our break, however holidays are often about expectation. I will try to clarify my take on some of the issues raised good or bad in other reviews. We travelled in August with two teenagers and paid a little over £800 per person including flights (peak time & hence prices). Could not... More

My daughter and I spent 5 nights at this hotel, we were greeted by friendly staff on reception after a evening flight, we were helped to our room, which was very comfortable, beds maybe a bit hard. The scenery was fantastic, especially by the quiet pool area. The food was very good in all the restaruants, and the waiters were... More

My husband and I visited this hotel in May of this year having been to Crete 2 years ago staying in a 5 star hotel. When we arrived at the Athina Palace I knew immediately this was anything but 5 star. We were given sandwiches and bottled water having arrived just before 10.00pm as we were unable to get a... More

Who wants to spend much time in their rooms when there is such a lovely hotel to explore, lovely pools with breath-taking views, endless amazing food, stunning beach two steps down the hill, lots of entertainment for both adults and children. Or hire a car from reception and visit close by water parks, more beautiful beaches with water sports or... More

Service is very slowly. Shuttle to... More

Myself and my husband spent a long time looking on the internet for a last minute deal and thought we had done really well managing to get a good price for a week in this '5*' hotel. Upon arrival we had a friendly welcome and were taken to our room. The room was vile....dirty, ill fitting curtains, smelly, fixtures and... More
