This fantastic hotel is directly on the beach with two pools one quieter, both just in front of the beach which works well. The beach is sandy and shallow, and the water is crystal clear and great for snorkelling. The hotel, beach and pool area are all very clean and tidy. Sun beds and umbrellas were plentiful at any hour, the 7.00AM towel on sun bed routine didn’t appear to happen at this hotel. The entire bar staff, 3 bars in total, were all very friendly and Makis deserves his many accolades. We did not have to wait long for a drink at any bar, and even waiter service round the pool and beach.
Our room was close to the pool and beach, but always quiet, (thanks to Sevi, the Reservation Manager and her great team who noted our requests) spacious, cleaned regularly with a modern light design. The air conditions worked perfectly and hot water available all day. There was even a dvd payer, which we didn't have time to use. The balcony looked onto the garden and sea, and as with the whole hotel had an amazing view of the mainland. Having had a stroll around the small complex there didn’t appear to be a bad room in any of the low rise units.
The restaurant offered a wide selection of food which was always of a high standard; the salads were always fresh and well presented. A wide range of meats, fish, and vegetables, which never ran low as they were constantly being refreshed. We particularly liked the themed nights. Every day had a show area where two chefs cooked fresh produce, and a Greek corner to try local cuisine. (just as good as meals we had out, as were hired a car for a few excursions) There were even fresh omelettes, eggs or pancakes cooked for you each morning, or a continental option. The waiters could not do enough to help you and would happily have a chat, talk about the dishes, or recommend somewhere to visit. We never had to wait for a drink, and would be topped up even before asking. As busy eating times, we went end of June early July, you may have to wait a maximum 5 minutes to get an outside table, Andreas (restaurant manager) who went the extra mile, would always come to the terrace bar and show us to our table once free. He always had a word or quip for every table and made dining a delight. Babis continually had a wink and a smile and sometimes a bottle of local wine to try, but it’s tough to single any individual out, they were all fantastic.
The animation team were full of energy and fantastic fun. Each day was filled with activities and dancing. Thanks to Angel for teaching us some Greek and backgammon. Thanks to Quentin for his enthusiastic daily aqua aerobics and Blaise, Lou and Ingrid were just fun, fun, fun!! Unlike other reviews we never had a problem with the language as all the animation team spoke excellent English, as did the hotel staff, the team were never pushy, and due to the international variety of guests, most activates were conducted in English. The evening shows were always energetic and fun. Even a magician one night.
If you want a beautiful quiet setting, crystal clear seas, a sandy beach, excellent service where the staff’s desire is to give you the best holiday ever, this is the place for you. As a couple we loved this hotel, it but would equally suit families. All the 5* reviews are deserved. This is our best all-inclusive yet.
All good rooms. Our block 1400's was great.
