We have just returned from two weeks at this hotel We arrived about 11:40pm and were very tired and hungry after about 12 hours travelling.We were greeted by a very nice well spoken young lady (Alexandra) who checked us in and informed us that a meal had been put aside for us in the Arriadne restaraunt.Ok it was just cold meats and salad,but we have never had that in any other hotel before!As my husband is diabetic we told the receptionist that we would need the fridge in our room (normally there is a charge) she informed us that we should pay for it the following day at reception,when we went the following morning we were told that there would be no charge!! So first impressions 10/10.
The room we had was in the main building on the first floor,it was very well decorated,very clean and the beds were very comfortable,there was air con, a fridge and ample storage space.The bathroom had a half bath with a proper shower over it, a wc and a hand basin,it was tiled quite tastefully from top to bottom and was also very clean.We had a good size balcony with a veiw overlooking the bottom swimming pool and the sea.
The food was very good.We stayed on a half board basis.The usual buffet breakfast but plenty of choice.At lunch if we didn't go out we ate at the captains bar by the pool,(you have to use the main restaraunt if you go all inclusive),oh and by the way you CAN upgrade for about 18 euros pp/ pd.but it just wasn't worth us doing it! The a la carte menu there was a bit limited but very nice and reasonably priced (we used to pay about 18-20 euros for lunch and drinks and that was for the both of us not each) Anna the bar supervisor was very nice and pleasant.Evening meals were in the main restaraunt and there was always plenty to choose from and they served some really good wine too!
There were two swimming pools,the bottom one was where all the activity went on and the top one was much quieter.On certain days you can try scuba diving free of charge!! There were more than enough sunbeds,and there are pool towels left in your rooms to use.There is a sauna and gym.There was a small minimarket down the road.The only thing that dissapointed me was there was no beach as such.You had to walk about 500mtrs to get to the hotels "beach" which was a man made pool with access into the sea, there were sunbeds and showers around but the bar was not open at this time.The gardens around the hotel were very well maintained,and there was a lovely little church there just outside the entrance into the hotel reception.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and our maid" Stavrula" was a gem! I would love to go back again and would recommend this hotel to anyone,exept people with mobility problems as there are a lot of steps dotted around and no ramps for wheelchairs etc.We had a very happy memorable time!
