Great resort, very high quality in every aspect! Top team, clean beach, nice pools, wonderful food, excellent service! We liked the SPA area very much. The only bad thing was that we could not stay longer, but we will come back again!

Hotel's Favorite
This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this hotel. From the first trip to this one, nothing changes. We are greeted like long lost friends and looked after like royalty without the pomp . The hotel is practical and homely without the formal feel. You can completely relax and switch off. The staff, from the managers to the serving staff to the people behind the scenes, this place runs like a finely tuned machine. Everyone is willing to help and make your stay a thoroughly enjoyable one. The bar areas are comfortable with indoor and outdoor seating. We like the beach bar best. Beautiful views over the ocean, great cocktails and fabulous staff. The entertainment is different in each bar. The beach bar is more sedate. The food will suit every palette. Every night a wide variety is laid on. It’s fresh and appealing and the only downfall is, you will go home a few pounds heavier. The good news is, they lay on plenty of activities and a well equipped gym for you to burn them off. The only criticism I have is, they still use plastic straws and plastic water bottles. I’m hoping by the next time we visit, the problem will be addressed. If you are thinking of visiting, you will not be disappointed. I’m already looking forward to returning. Thank you to everyone at Pilot Beach

My partner and myself stayed at the Pilot for a week at the end of the season, end of October into early November. The resort is fantastic, the staff are so helpful and friendly, the welcome here huge. This was our first time in Greece, and we definitely will be returning. The location of the resort is first rate, right on a delightful beach. The restaurant caters for all tastes - you would have to incredibly, stupidly fussy not to find something you'd like to eat. The resort has it's own spa, gym, themed restaurants besides the main one, four separate swimming pools, it's own beach - even it's own helicopter landing pad. The only slight negatives I had (I'm splitting hairs really) are the pools are not heated but this would be a God send in the height of summer in 40 degrees heat, plus some of the younger waiting staff weren't quite as attentive as the more experienced, mature members. But as I said, I'm splitting hairs - this is a truly excellent hotel. Well worth visiting, you will not be disappointed.

Third time at Pilot Beach and the quality of facilities and the warm welcoming from the whole team at Pilot Beach are exceptionnal. This is the best place for family holidays. The spa is very good and the food is truly amazing. We thank everyone at Pilot Beach for having us spend the best holiday every time we go. See you soon, William Boelen

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
I had read some mixed reviews and was prepared for end of season ragged edges, but I chose the hotel for 1. Actual beachside rooms 2. Walking distance to a village with shops and restaurants. It exceeded my expectations. On the beachside part where I stayed it was at least 90pct occupancy in October. Room great; food good; beach excellent; facilities all as stated and very good. Really simple things: WiFi worked everywhere including the beach club without dropping out; lovely welcome and leaving gifts; cheerful restaurant staff; fantastic birthday cake organised with care; reasonably priced bar drinks; genuinely good quality local bathroom toiletries. I really have little to criticise, it made for an extremely peaceful break. My only criticisms would be: very limited UK TV channels (we could only find BBC World); intraday activities need to be better flagged - I had been there 3 days before realising there was in the sea aerobics / volleyball sessions etc (maybe put the posters in the restaurants?); small queuing at busy dinner times at the beach restaurant. We will return, incredibly well organised - everything works! Room tip: the resort is spread out and different zones will appeal to different travellers; ask for a resort map before booking and look at aerial Googlemap for help too.
