We stayed at the Louis King Jason from 22nd -29th May 2013. From the minute we entered the hotel we knew this place was special. We were greeted with fresh juice and smiles all round, bearing in mind it was 11pm and we were all tired after a very long day. We were told to look in the fridge when we got to our room and there four plates of freshly made sandwiches and salad. We travelled with two children aged 18 and 10. We had a one bedroom apartment (83), this was lovely and spacious and very quiet.
Entering the dining room on the first morning was a like a breath of fresh air - we were greeted by Andreas (General Manager) and Maria. They are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble! Andres even found a bar that my husband could go and watch the Monaco Grand Prix in :) The food was exceptional, even the girls tried everything and liked most things, there was something for every taste and the best thing - no chips or burgers in sight. Lots of fresh salads, meat dishes and fantastic desserts! Tables were well spaced and you could take as long as you wanted over meals. As you emptied your glass it was refilled, waiters were always smiling and polite.
The swimming pools are lovely, we spent most of our time around the hydro contact pool, which was quieter. They are spotlessly clean and well maintained. Always plenty of sunbeds with umbrellas so never a race to get out early in the morning with towels. Pool towels are provided and they also come around with ice cold face cloths and iced drinks - much appreciated in the heat.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough, if it wasn't for the fact we have booked our Summer holiday already, we would definitely be going back this year, unfortunately we may have to wait until next year :(
Thank you to all the staff at the Louis King Jason for a wonderful week, Rebecca didn't want to leave (had to take photographs of Andreas and Maria!).
