I spent a week at this hotel, and it was a very, very pleasant experience. All staff members were awfully kind and the service was almost perfect. The food was good and often it was not easy to chose because there was a big choice. Just a remark: the wifi was ok but the connection was not very stable and... More

Even if we started the stay with a disappointment and misunderstanding with the staff (regarding the pants policy for men at dinner which is not told before the arrival), we will keep a good memory of the hotel. Following up this accident, the hotel a management and the restaurant Maitre d'hôtel made everything they could for us to be happy!... More

Very chick hotel. You can hear the quiet around you. Ideal for couples and honeymooners. Rooms are big and inviting with good facilities. The food is excellent and the bars are friendly. The staff give you the feeling you are the only guest at the hotel. All rooms have a big balcony.

We gave this resort a 5 start even though it lacked location (the beach being across the street). However, the service, food quality (best breakfast buffet we had in 3 weeks in Greece and even better than the Hilton), cleanliness, etc. was great. Dinner buffet for 5 nights was tremendous (and we have seen quite a few all inclusive dinner... More

Fantastic hotel. We expected to go out most of the time or at best to get bored hanging around the hotel. but we loved being there. Pools, food, staff, bars, all excellent. Staff friendly and helpful, the food excellent at every meal and plenty of room to relax. The spa is an excellent standard.

It always helps when the sun is hot. This was the first week of the season it opened. Always a risk but everything worked liked it had been running smoothly non stop. The rooms are comfortable and spotless. The food is good and sound. The a la carte restaurant is worth a visit. The staff are exceptional and cannot do... More
