Wow this was an amazing resort. Me and my friend booked last minute and went towards the end of the season. It was till a bit lively but got noticeably quieter as the week went on.
We had a room with jacuzzi which was lovely after a day of sightseeing (worth paying extra it was like £60).

So the staff. Well they were very very friendly. The receptionist when we arrived (older gentleman ) was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. There was a lovely porter who helped isbwith our luggage which was unexpected as usually we are used to dragging our own suitcases around ahahha. We even had a nice welcome water at reception.
All yhe reception staff are fabulous. Even helping us to call the bus company when we were leaving to make sure they stop at the resort to pick us up.
We were half board I was sceptical but the food was gorgeous. Alot of choice every night and we certainly filled our boots! The desserts are lovely our particular favourite was an orange cake omg my friend and I still talk about it!

Service was fast. There was a cool bartender who we spent one night chatting to with some other guests it's was hsi last shift for teh season and it was such a laugh!

Out room was a bit smaller than we expected and our twin beds were a hit too close together so we did a bit of moving them around.
The resort is stunning. If we stayed longer we would have lounged more in the grounds because honestly it was beautiful.
We stayed one night and there was a belly dnacer she was fun and even got the guests involved dancing.

I'd only say to improve the television channels. We realised when we got there that the resort has a lot of German guests so practically all the TV channels were in German. Only bbc world news was in English and that got very boring very quickly. Also the breakfast was very German orientated too, we would have liked a bit more choice like regular sausages rather than frankfurters and some baked beans would have been perfect.

From the moment you enter Orpheas hotel you feel the relaxed atmosphere, the almost serene peace that we were longing so much for when we booked our holiday. The fact that it is an 'adult only' hotel (minimum age is 16 years) surely helped. The good experience started at the reception where all employees not only speak several languages, but are also very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The help with our luggage was very much appreciated. The room we had exceeded our expectations: spacious, spotlessly clean and with a breathtaking seaview. Imagine.. falling asleep with the sound of the waves.
The new pool is beautiful and has sunbeds around to relax. Or you can read a book in the well maintained garden. And if you prefer the beach with umbrellas and sunbeds, it is only a 5 minute walk.
Breakfast buffet has a great variety and everything is fresh. For a little extra cost a big glass of fresh orange juice (without icecubes) was served at our table.
Diner buffet is also very nice and tasty. Enough choice and variety for everyone to find some dishes you like. They also serve good wines at a normal price.
Staff in the restaurant is very friendly and helpful too. Same for the poolbar where you can order a tasty lunch à la carte for a reasonable price. Overall you can see that all the employees have satisfaction and pleasure in giving the guests a good time. Add the good price-quality balance and then it is clear why we definitely recommend this hotel.

Gorgeous few days at this lovely little hotel, the staff were incredible - so helpful and polite and welcoming, and the buffet food was delicious. Would recommend booking a room with a private plunge pool or one of the new rooms in the main building. Stunning grounds for a delightful relaxing stay right on the beach. Would highly recommend for couples or a chilled break with friends.

We spent a week at Orpheas Resort Hotel at the start of May & thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a late flight so were expecting to just get our keycard and head to our room when we arrived. We were greeted with a delicious selection of food reserved for us, a great welcome and it was much appreciated. The room was lovely, however in the information we read before booking we saw that the rooms were described as soundproof. That's definitely not the case. We could hear music from the neighbouring hotel and other guests chatting. The entire hotel was spotless. The cleaning team works really hard! The food was great, lots of choice, fresh and delicious. The team working the breakfast and dinner sittings were brilliant. One receptionist in particular was incredibly helpful, giving us tips on where we could go for different activities when we asked about options. The only down side for us was that there's one really nice undercover area by the pool (along with sunbeds etc that are around the pool) and because we were there at the start of the season it wasn't always warm and there was a day of rain. We would have loved to sit out there but that area was always taken by smokers. While there was nothing stopping us sitting in there, as non-smokers, we would have liked another option. The beach that we could access from the back of the hotel was fabulous, clean and safe. It was a wonderful week!

A simply superb stay. The Orpheas is so very different to the grey concrete boxes of hotels in Kavros, having a lovely Bohemian and boutique feel, with gorgeous, well tended gardens and excellent rooms. The food was fantastic, with a wide and plentiful choice of dishes. The staff were amazing, from Vicki on reception, the bartenders, the waitresses, the room cleaner, the cook at the Pool Bar and especially Nikos, the porter... These guys and girls could really not do enough to make our stay perfect. We had a suite which was very clean and comfortable, with a modern bathroom, fridge and it's own little plunge pool in the garden. The food at the pool bar was excellent and the beach was superb with gorgeous, golden sand.

What a lovely place to stay, relaxed surroundings, stunning scenery and a long sandy beach.
What sets this hotel apart though is the staff, simply incredible; without exception they obviously pride themselves on their professionalism, courtesy, and the highest standards of service. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. Warm, friendly, genuine and happy; we felt so valued and relaxed. The reception staff went out of their way to help us; the pool bar staff were genuinely lovely and welcoming; the lovely lady hospitality manager was a genuine credit to the hotel and obviously values the staff’s skills; and Vassilios, the king of cocktails, what a lovely way to wind down after dinner, he really knows his stuff, each drink was lovingly prepared and it was a pleasure to watch him work his artful magic. I can’t praise the staff highly enough, they made us feel more like their friends than hotel guests. Bravo!

We had a wonderful, unforgettable time at this unique dream-scenery resort. The place magnetizes you and you don’t want to leave-we stayed 4 extra days. The rooms are marvellous and the personnel extremely polite and competent. The turquoise sea is at your feet to enjoy all day and you can alternate it with the pool-jacuzzi and the massage therapies. Don’t miss the delicious savouries at the pool bar and a drink under the stars or a stroll in the gardens under the moonlight. One of the rare experiences to relax, enjoy, dream..
We will definitely be back!

We booked Georgioupolis Beach Hotel but Easyjet bizarrely cancelled and gave us this Hotel. Although, I am not keen on the rustic style decor but you can't fault the place. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Always aiming to please. Unfortunately I don't know their names, the restaurant staff were really nice. The food is OK for a 4 star hotel and the whole atmosphere in the hotel was relaxing and kind of romantic. Not a bad place to visit. Thank you all for making our stay enjoyable and memorable.

The hotel is so relaxing, even when is fully booked there is no need to rush for the swimming pool or for the umbrellas on the beach, there are enough for everyone!
Extremely clean.

Absolutely stunning little boutique hotel in a quiet area. Other luxury hotels are in close proximity as are plenty of little tavernas & restaurants. There are a number of shops and supermarkets across the road, but all are unobtrusive making this a great area for a chilled, relaxing break.
The resort is on its own beach with ample sunbeds and there are beautiful pools and gardens with sun beds for everyone.
The Adults only class made this a perfect get away for us to just kick back and enjoy the sun!
The restaurant and pool bar are excellent, plenty of choice of top quality food and drinks.
A special thank you must be made to Rena for her first class attention to detail and friendly manner. Also, the ladies in reception who couldn’t do enough to ensure we had an amazing break.
And our room was wonderful! Private jacuzzi and terrace, not overlooked butl iterally a few steps from all the facilities. We will definately be back
