This was our first Mark Warner holiday having been on Neilson watersports holidays before and our first holiday with a toddler. The flights with BA were great and the short transfer time to resort a real blessing with a 20 month old child. The hotel was lovely and well laid out, we paid the extra to upgrade to a suite and the extra room was well worth it with a toddler running around. The accomodation was excellent and kept very clean far better than on any of the Neilson trips we have been on.
There are so many pools and the main pool is huge and mostly empty which was great.
The beach staff were really helpful and helped you take your windsurfing kit down to the beach and always gave you tips and advice on the conditions - very helpful for beginners like us. The waterskiing was also great although you have to pay extra for it which you don't with Neilson.
The childcare centre was brilliant and the nannies are superb, our little one really settled in and also enjoyed the evening sleep club which is free.
The Greek staff in the hotel and restaurant are very friendly and love children they really make a fuss of them. The food was of good quality and although there was variety it somehow all felt a bit monotonous by the end of the week. Definitely preferred the food on the Neilson trips we have been on. We were not so impressed with the children's tea there were not really many healthy options and the cooked food seemed quite salty. Our little one loves fruit but there were only a few fruits on offer which were whole fruit which seemed a bit strange as the adults got lots of different sliced fruit on offer. We ended up saving him the fruits from our dinners and breakfast. On the whole though we had a fantastic time the room was amazing the watersports were awesome and the childcare was excellent!
