Stayed here for 2 weeks with my 2 boys aged 6&10 and my friend and her children 6&8. Rooms were basic but clean with small bathroom with shower tray.( not very big and floor got soaked every time we used it!) 1 double bed and 1 camp bed. Patio doors leading to small balcony. We overlooked the children's park. Only... More

Extremely lovely staff, I could not praise them enough they were brilliant! However the rules of the hotel are stupid, all inclusive with some major exceptions, bar stops at 10:30pm after that you have to pay, food Is only free at certain times of the day, there is a lot of pork!!! We also got kicked out of our room... More

Hi all, We are a very humble couple who have traveled all over the place. We have stayed in a number of islands in Greece so understand what a 3* hotel should provide. We stayed 2 weeks in August at this hotel. Here is our overview... Room Air conditioning is €98 for 2 weeks which we feel was very over... More

Excellent value for money, my 2 teenage children and I had a wonderful week here in August. I was a little dubious having read previous reviews particularly one that said the hotel was overbooked when they arrived. This very much depends on how and who you book with. We booked through Olympic Holidays and were told that this would never... More

Just returned from this hotel. Booked due all-inclusive due to children for drinks ice creams ect. Room was very basic but comfortable only needed it for shower and sleeping in. A lot of holiday makers complaining about their room and I can only assume we had one of the best rooms after listening to them. Drinks not up to much... More

We chose this particular hotel because of our budget and the fact it was a family run hotel, we visited here on 28th July 2015 for 1 week, for the price we paid for the time of year we were not expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised. Lovely staff, friendly, helpful, honest, pool was great, food was great, bar was... More
