The hotel had only just opened for the season (end Apr) so was quiet but that suited me.
The layout is great with the bar and main restaurant positioned to take in the great views (sunrises and sunsets) with the pool, bar and afternoon restaurant tucked behind. The pool area is well positioned with plenty of space for loungers. The rooms were clean, spacious with plenty of storage and an all important fridge - most had views of the pool or the sea.
Both breakfast and dinner buffets were plentiful. Dinner was varied every night with plenty of options. My only small criticism would be that I would have liked to have seen some more authentic hot dishes in the evening (moussaka, souvlaki, kleftiko) and some fruit based desserts (simply fruit salad would have done) rather than just the sticky sugary offerings.
The staff are what lifts this place from very good to exceptional. It is clearly a 'family' run place where everyone takes pride in hotel and the services they offer.
I will certainly go back, maybe towards the end of the season, to see some old faces.
