Between 2004 and 2014, I have been at the village part of the resort 8 times now and will return again. I don't like hotels much, so the village part of the resort with its typical small Greek houses built as a genuine village complete with kafenio, main square, church, museum, shops, etc. is perfect for me. Service was always... More

We stayed for two weeks and halfboard with 2 little children. 1st Appartment was really too small and not comfortable to reach with babys or handicaped persons.After claiming we got quickly a larger, suitable room in the mainhouse. Small floors and only 2 little elevators let feel life in a box. Hotel yard concept & design is impressing. Breakfast is... More

Very disappointing, this is definitely not a 5 Star hotel, at best 3 Star. At the end of the airport runway, the planes pratically clip the roof. Cheap, nasty food, shabby rooms. Unbelievably, it is about the same price as the Proteas, but there isabsolutely no comparison. Do not stay in Doryssa if they give it to you for nothing.

Dear Guests, Further to your review posted on Trip Advisor, we just would like to specify that the air planes are not flying during the night, and that they are rarely more than 10 per day in the high season. As you can read in other reviews a lot of our guests think that this is quite impressive rather than... More

We stayed here in october when the tourist season was about to end. Huge hotel but not anymore so crowded, so plenty of space by the pool and at the beach. Location was great. It was very near the airport, but the noise did not bother at all. There were maybe 5 flights per day. Friendly staff and lots of... More

This was our second visit to Doryssa. First time we had a room upgrade but not so lucky this year, however, the standard room was perfectly ok. Our only issue was with the fridge: despite having an ice cube tray the fridge didn't get nearly cold enough to freeze anything and, in common with many holiday hotels, it switched off... More

Dear guests, Thank you for your review and for choosing to return at Doryssa Seaside Resort for your holidays this year again. The fridge in the room is capable of freezing ice cubes and its operation doesn't stop when the key card is taken, unless it has a damage. In this case we immediately replace it with a new one...

We have been traveling to several Greek islands and this was the best 4-5 star hotels we have been so far. The room was large enough for our family with 2 small children. Everything was white and modern, the garden was nice. The breakfast buffet served lots of everything. The hotel is large so there is lots of activities and... More

I am not a resort lover but for those of you who are you could do a lot worse than Doryssa. We stayed in the Presidential Suite (602) which was brilliant value for money.
