Me, my husband, 4 year old and baby stayed here for 10 nights in a 2 bed suite. The rooms were great with a big sofa bed (and extra sliding bed underneath which we didn't need) in the sitting room and a huge bedroom with 2 large single beds pushed together to make a very comfortable double - and plenty room for a table with armchair and cot. Tv's in both rooms and air conditioning which was difficult to get just right but certainly got the room nice and cold. The bathroom was also nice and a good size family bath with powerful shower overhead. We had the room made up and clean towels provided every day, our maid did a great job, thank you.
There is a lower building which we were in and the upper building, where the buffet restaurant is.
There is step free access from the lower building to the beach bar and to the swimming pool which is great. However to get to the restaurant with a pushchair means going through a pebbled car park and up through the main road entrance (no pavement) or to the swimming pool and out a back entrance past the bins - neither ideal. Not a big gripe but would really benefit from a step free path from the lower building direct to the upper building.
The bar/cafe at the swimming pool was nice and Did small range of simple but tasty and good value lunches eg pasta, salads or club sandwich with chips. Seemed to open and close randomly though at the managers discretion!?
The swimming pool is big, well looked after and loads of sunbeds and umbrellas. However, it doesn't have a kids end! The 'shallow' end was up to my neck and I am 5 ft 6. Having a dedicated kids swimming pool would massively improve this hotel - or even just a proper kids shallow end. Without this we wouldn't return as it meant every time our 4 year old wanted to get in the pool one of us also had to get in, whereas she would quite happily have run in and out of a kids pool all day long without the need for constant supervision which she didn't want.
The food and drinks in the buffet restaurant were good, not fantastic and not rubbish - just good overall with enough of a selection at all meals for all the family with varying tastes.
The beach bar is lovely (with beer on tap not only in bottles which is definitely my husbands preference) and although the beach is stony, it was also lovely, although we had to pay 5 euros for a sunbed (we got a 1 euro discount as residents) - these should just be included for free. There is a shallow, naturally coved area of water that serves as a kids pool which our daughter loved as could go in unsupervised and even catch little fish/crabs in a bucket.
Ivan and Desy who ran the kids club were brilliant. 10-12 and 3-5 every day with a 20 minute kids disco on the beach every night at 9.15pm.
Despoina (on lower reception) and Maria (on upper reception) were particularly lovely and helpful - and incredibly kind to me at a time I needed some help. Thank you both so much.
Without a car you have to get a taxi everywhere as its not safe walking along the busy main road to the nearby town of Saronida so the cabs charge you 10 euros each way for a 5 minute journey!
Overall it's a good hotel and we had a lovely holiday.
