The hotel is extremely basic, our room was very tired and in need of repair, I complained and moved the next day to a much the same room but with a better view.... The food was all soaked in oils so very greasy.... The afternoon snacks consisted of bits of pizza under foil at the bar. Very limited drinks choice... More

Basic all inclusive with minimal rooms. Food and drink ok but as travelled as a couple without children we was able to venture out and go to George's 'RAINBOW BAR' across the road, defiantly worth a visit. Visiting hersonissis is a must. Beach and Aqua park is very good and extremely lively. Wish we found this sooner. Lots of shops... More

Although we had a great holiday I think there is better value hotels out there, got a great deal, staff lovely and quite nice area, close to the beach. We are not fussy but did not really like the food, although we like Greek cuisine it could have been that the chef have up towards the end of the season.... More

After booking this hotel and reading the mixed reviews we were a little wary of what we were going to end up with upon arrival but we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel has beautiful gardens and a good sized pool area. The rooms are basic but clean, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom (both in the room and... More
