We spent 12 days at Ikaros. All in all it was a relaxing vacation in a very nice hotel. Let me divide my comments into pros and cons:
Great location and very centrally located (easy to go out and enjoy the shops, restaurants and bars near by.
Check-in and check-out: very friendly and fast, thanks
Room: we had a bungalow which was in a nice size, with ocean view and very clean. Also the bathroom was spacious. Especially to mention the candle provided by the hotel, to be able to sit on the place in front of the room and enjoy the evenings. Much appreciated.
Hotel area is spacious and also very nice maintained.
Ouzeri Restaurant: very nice place near the beach, with ocean view. Good choices on the card and very well prepared, really tasty. The staff very friendly and they make your stay even more nice ! Don't miss it.
The main restaurant: I think this is the biggest issue the hotel has. Definitely not 5 stars .... I would say 3. I am not very picky, but twice when we arrived for breakfast (once about 9 and once about 9.30) there was no place to sit down and we have to wait (but half of the restaurant was closed). The same happened also twice in the evenings. The choice of meals is really good, but the quality not. (e.g. not warm or the plates are empty). Something that should not happen in a 5 star hotel. Also during dinner, sometimes all of our dish was still on the table when we wanted to start with the dessert. And last but not least: I got twice a glass for drinking, which was broken at the top. Both times the waiter means: oh, sorry for that ..... but he did not changed it. Well, this was really a con which makes our stay not so nice as it could be.
Also the personal in the Daidalos Bar was not really friendly, with one big exception: Renata Osmenda .... she makes us always feel welcome, has always a smile and some friendly words; Thanks for that, Renata ! Just an other remark: we know, we have been in a 5 star hotel (not for the first time), but even for a 5 star the drinks in the bar are a bit expensive, especially when you compare with the same drinks in any bar outside the hotel. But I will not claim .... we chose a 5 star.
So all in all, when they fix the problem with the main restaurant it would be a great place to stay.
We had the room 735 which I only can reccomend.
