We stayed here from the 30th June - 9th July 2014 and we really impressed. The hotel is not too far from the airport and when we arrived at 11pm at night the receptionist informed us they had kept a dinner for us as they thought we'd be hungry, which was really nice. The hotel has two beaches, one on... More

This is a very large hotel complete with its own chapel at the entrance to the hotel. Whilst there are around 250 rooms the place does not appear to be very busy. It took my daughter and I just over an hour to walk all the way around the hotel and beaches so you can appreciate just how big this... More

The hotel is set in a dream location, overlooking the picturesque bay of Agia Pelagia, the staff is genuinely friendly and responsive and the hotel rooms and grounds are very clean. We hardly ever left the hotel as we enjoyed every... More

It is pretty nice, even if it has lots and lots of stairs you have to use each day :). It has nice pools and it has been a nice vacation. I like to point out some animators from Romania that were hired by some french tour operators...since these guys did nice games and improved the quality of the time... More

We enjoyed the amazing views and stunning grounds of this hotel but our room was very cramped and bare bones in terms of decor. We booked a triple room and it was very small with the third bed a few feet away from the double. Realize if it is for 3 people it will be tight. A real bugaboo was... More

My husband and I came to The Peninsula Hotel last April for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel was very clean, well conditioned and all of the staff were friendly and attentive. When we mentioned it was our honeymoon we were immediately offered a different room by the reception staff which was bigger and had a... More

We had a very relaxing and lovely time :-) very clean hotel with a beautiful view! Welcoming and friendly staff including fun animation team, which provides some activities if you are not a fan of just sun bathing by the pool. Food was just delicious! You are not going to be hungry there for sure :-) Great location especially if... More
