When we talk about friends, we often say, "it's not when times are good that counts but when something goes wrong".
This really applies for Harries. Don't get me wrong, their service is almost flawless at the more than acceptable pricing they offer. It's just that when my girlfriend lost her Sarong (Towel), though it nothing expensive, Harries got almost all their staff to start searching!!! Imagine how touched and shocked we were when we saw so many people searching for something that may cost less than $10USD. Naturally, as the Sarong had some emotional significance to my girlfriend, she was more than happy, though embarrassed, by what happened.
With regards to the resort itself, it has one of the better "full packages" available and the General Manager, Mr. Stylianos A. Koureas, is always walking around making sure everyone is enjoying themselves. The best part is that he offers honest reviews and advice on what guest may find interesting and what to avoid based on individual preferences. It's always good to check with him on latest happenings and he's always more than happy for a chat.
Everything's taken care of from paint-ball fights, flying fox, bowling, massage to the wonderful view of the sea from either your room or from well, relaxing constructed sea-side houses. Can't wait for the new wing to be opened.
Unlike other resorts I have been to, Harries seems to be more concerned about keeping clients happy more than anything else. When people from our group wanted to do activities which Harries do not offer, transportation was made available to us to bring us to the location. The Pasta was really great (Not surprising given the GM's Italian heritage) and ,like the activities in the morning, when another member of our travel group wanted local seafood, Harries gave a recommendation and brought us there.
In travel, it may sometimes be difficult to get what you want and to make sure nothing "screws up" but at Harries, these guys go all out to make sure you have a good time regardless of any good or bad things that may happen along the way.
Cheers to ya
