My boyfriend and I (early 20s) have just returned from a week at the hotel. First impressions were very good, the staff at reception are very welcoming and the hotel porter who showed us to our room was very friendly and helpful. When we were shown to our room (side sea-view), our expectations were exceeded. The room overlooked the beach which was lovely! The rooms have been recently refurbished and are very modern with a huge bed, nice simple décor, a safe which is free to use, good aircon, 2 large mirrors, English plug sockets, hairdryer, fridge etc. The maids were all very friendly and hard working and our towels were changed daily. The staff throughout the hotel, especially the reception staff and those who worked within the shop were extremely helpful and friendly. Also, as we arrived late, we had missed dinner so we were given a meal voucher which we used for lunch one day as we were half board. One niggle I had was with the pool bar staff who sometimes seemed a bit ignorant and miserable and when we ordered lunch they left us waiting ages because I think they had forgotten, but maybe that was just me reading too much into it. The pool area was where we spent the majority of our time however there are limited sunbeds which meant we ended up going down at 7am to reserve them with our towels! However there are more than enough beds in the hotels garden area which is located between the pool area and the beach which is just as nice! The beach is beautiful and the waves look amazing and when the sun sets its incredible! However the beach is very small so you would again need to get there early if you wanted somewhere to lay. The animation team set up games throughout the day and all seemed very jolly and we often got involved and won some free drinks!
There was a spa located within the hotel which looked lovely and did promote good offers and was often busy with people going in and out. There is an indoor pool next door to the spa which looked quite nice too. There is also a small shop within the hotel where you can buy newspapers, snacks, water, lilos, sun lotion etc.
The major let down for us at the hotel was the food. The breakfast was good, there was a selection of bread, cereals, cooked breakfast and some fruit and yog. However the dinner menu really was not for us. I would rate the food as 3* star quality and some of the dishes just seemed odd. Every night was a theme night, such as greek or oriental but we only ate at the restaurant once as we were not keen on the menu and there was not as much variety as we have experienced in other 4* hotels. The pool bar food was pretty poor. On one occasion we were the only people that had ordered food yet it took them forever to bring it to us. I ordered a chicken toasted sarnie which was made up of mostly bread with a few tiny bits of chicken in it which tasted more like fish :/ I would recommend B&B for anyone unsure. We did eat lunch at a nice café called St.georgio which is just across the road from the hotel. The food was great value for money and good quality. There is an a la carte restaurant at the hotel which seemed popular and there are bars upstairs and downstairs within the lobby area with good, polite waiter service. The wifi in the lobby was very good but in the rooms it lacked but it was not an issue. One other issue was the dress code. Some days the heat was unbearable yet it was policy that men wear trousers in the evening for the restaurant and lobby, bar area etc. This seems a bit silly to me since my partner had smart pairs of shorts so it was not like he looked as though he had just come in from the pool yet women were allowed to wear shorts or skirts etc.
The location of the hotel was not as far out as some people were making out. It is not with the large majority of hotels such as Athena beach etc which are at the end of the harbour, however, there was a bus stop on the road outside hotel which cost 1.50 to the harbour or coral bay! And there are plenty of shops and restaurants along the way too! We ate at fat mammas (I recommend the fajitas!) which you can get the 615 bus to and you get way more food than what you pay for! The harbour is very pretty and there are lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops etc. We ate at a place called Hobos which when you arrive at the harbour, go left and follow to the end (5min walk) and you will see it! They also give you a 30% off discount voucher for your next visit! They offer burgers, chicken, pasta, steak etc.
If you are a couple looking for a few bars to go to in the evening we recommend bar street which is located right at the end of the harbour. You can either get the bus to the harbour (1.50 euro) then when you get there go right and walk down the promenade up to kfc..(5 min walk) by that time you will have a promoter asking you where you are going. If you continue straight, past kfc a little further you will see a starbucks on the opposite side of the road. Next to starbucks is a little cut off which leads you down to bar street. (30 second walk) We went to Flairs bar and linekers which both offer free shots and 241 drinks! If you did not want to get bus to harbour or back, taxis were 12 euros. I think buses stopped running after 12.30am.
All in all, aside from a few niggles, this Is a good, clean, welcoming, spacious and calm hotel with a variety of couples and families of all ages which provided a nice atmosphere.
