I expected to be visiting a dump in war torn Iraq based on the previous reviews. I just spent a week all inclusive in this hotel with thomson and I am shocked by how nice it actually was. We arrived at the very clean and modern hotel reception and had a greeting from the very pleasant and smiley Greek receptionist... More

It is with a heavy heart that I find myself having to review my former favourite hotel in such a poor light. We visited the hotel as a family group of 7, some of us for the 15th time, and the changes to the hotel were immediately noticeable as soon as the newly refurbished reception area was entered. This once... More

Having stayed at this hotel 4 years ago we had high hopes, unfortunately it has gone down hill and is far from a 4 star it is billed as. Location - First class, it is remote however there is a small mini market near the beach. Hotel Reception - We were given a warm welcome upon arrival. Room - Cleaned... More

Hotel was nice and clean, the grounds were beautiful and was in a smashing location in terms of the beach. However the location in terms of site seeing and getting around is not the best, unless you're 23 and can hire a car, unlike my girlfriend and I. The room was a good size, didn't have a double bed but... More

Grounds very pretty, room very basic and shabby. Bathroom shabby. Pool area in dire need of a make-over. Service at pool bar - worst ever. Food in restaurant - what was there was okay but not much of a selection, snacks consisted of cakes !!!!!! Thought I had booked 4 star........more like 2 star.. Entertainment......... What entertainment.

Didnt know what to expect from reading previous reviews, it seemed a mixed bag. We went with a teenager in May half term holidays on an all inclusive basis. We were very suprised at how quiet it was, but it was the same all over the island, there were only about 40 people in the hotel. I think alot of... More

The location of this hotel is the one thing that no reviewer deny. It faces south on the peninsular of the island and the beach is a real sun trap. Long stretches of sand, quiet, and water warm enough to swim in. Most rooms had a sea view, and the views in the morning are unforgettable. Beautiful Xi beach is... More
