My partner and I have just got back from a week at the Restia Suites and I can quite honestly say it was one of the best hotels we have ever been too. I too read reviews prior to booking and thought that it couldn't be true what people had written, but they were right.
From the moment you arrive you are made to feel extremely welcome by the owners, and their dog! Your luggage is taken to your room for you and then you are taken to your room. We had one of the private pool rooms, and it was fantastic. There really was nothing we could fault.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, it was really nice that by the 2nd day they knew your room number. The food was excellent, and it was beautifully prepared and presented as well as plenty of it - you certainly don't go hungry. The house wine was great, and well worth it. My partner likes Smirnoff Ice and in the middle of the holiday the barman said 'I'm sorry this is the last one we have for today, but don't worry we will have some more tomorrow' - the customer service was excellent and everything was said or done with a smile - even this late in the season.
Breakfast is great - there is so much choice, and Wendy the waitress is always so cheerful and helpful, and happily explains everything to you on your first morning.
We opted for the private taxi transfer, but don't book it though Thomsons as they are expensive, just email the hotel and they will arrange it for you at a cost of 60 euros - it is well worth it.
Our only criticism of the holiday, which has nothing to do with the hotel is that if you can book the extra leg room seats, do - as usual a charter plane seat is really rather cramped and make sure you take mosi repellent - we did get bitten quite a lot.
As a general rule, my partner and I never return to a hotel - there are so many more in the world, but we would most definitely return back to the Restia Suites, and I have already recommended it to all our friends.
If you are thinking of going to the Restia Suites - just book it - you will love it.
