I have just returned from a week in this Hotel 08/15 Oct. It was a family holiday with my daughter and grandsons. We had a wonderful time and we would go again.
We were late for the evening meal, but the staff were great and did provide us with a late supper. I cannot rave about the food and another week of the same would have been too much but there was plenty of choice and some of the dishes were delicious. We struggled to please the kids, apart from their daily jelly! To be fair, the bread was fresh and salads and cakes were very good.
We ate out at a local Taverna on the beach which was excellent. We visited two beaches, one was quieter and both were very clean. Luckily we had hired a car so we were able to avoid the steep walks back up to the hotel.
Our room was cleaned daily and due to the recent robberies, we paid for a safety deposit box for our peace of mind. We noticed that there were two men patrolling the Hotel grounds during most of the day and night for security. When we were suspicious of two males without wrist bands, the Hotel staff acted immediately and appropriately and told them to leave.
We had a large balcony and a fantastic sea view. Our bedding and towels were changed daily.
This was the first time the children had been abroad and we think that we made an excellent choice. They loved Mo the entertainer and the pool bar staff Charlene, Harris and Rocky. All the hotel staff worked hard, the pool bar staff in particular.
There was an incident one evening with some guests who had over consumed alcohol and did not take kindly to being requested, nicely, to stop behaving inappropriately in front of the children and other guests. The pool bar staff acted professionally and were supportive as were most of the other guests who were present. This was no place for lewdish behaviour, I would suggest another place in another country preferably to those particular guests...
We would definitely go again it is a perfect place for a family holiday and we would request the same room/block near Katerinas mini market because it was nice and peaceful in the late hours.
We met some lovely people and the whole atmosphere of the Hotel was very easy going and the children loved every minute of it.
I would not go as a couple or for a group holiday but it is perfect for a family.
