We were there end of April / beginning of May this year. We took a family suite with sea view. It means 2 rooms and a large terrace; everything nice, clean, spacious and sunny. In the room there is a fridge, electric kettle, some mugs - important things if you come with a toddler. Lovely pool area; unfortunately it was quite early in the season and the water was really cold; it got warmer only at the end of our stay. A really sandy beach and the sea very shallow - you can walk about 50 meters and still feel the ground under your feet. The food was tasty and the choice was sufficient even for a 2 years old, who by nature does not eat everything that the parents give her...
1) No soap or shampoo in the room. You'd expect at least some soap in a 5* hotel...
2) Very hard bed and tall, stiff pillows
3) I needed to have 1 call for my work during our stay and it was cheaper to do it from my mobile in roaming, rather than from the room. They charge 2 EUR per minute for a toll-free Greek number call!
Internet is free in the lobby, in the rooms you'd have to pay and the signal is week.
Service is quite indifferent towards guests; we don't mind really, but I've read a lot about Greek hospitality and it was not the case. But they were of course polite and helpful.
Not too many attractions in the neighborhood; although you should really take an evening walk to Makrigialos seaside promenade. It's small but nice and with a couple of pleasant cafes.
Overall, we had a very nice stay and I can recommend this hotel to any family with children.
