We have been here for 2 weeks in August 2018. The resort is the most family oriented. Our Superior room was with sea view, large with nice decoration. The resort offers great swimming pool with water side for adults and children with free ice cream all day. The sandy beach in front of the hotel is impressive large and clean. The main restaurant offers excellent buffet for breakfast and dinner with free drinks. Staff is very helpful and polite ready to help you any time. See you all next year.

If you visit Syros, you should stay there. It feels like you where there some days before. The hospitality, the kind stuff, the excellent breakfast, the very clean areas and rooms and bathrooms. For family’s with children between 3-10 years it’s a must go destination. O wonder why the word “family” on the title of the hotel! It worth it

The hotel itself continues to be excellent, largely because of its location overlooking Galissas beach. Until last year when we last visited it, its seaside restaurant by the beach was also very good. This year, sadly, its seaside restaurant was terrible despite its good location. Its management appears to have changed and it was not for the better. Many of the staple items in the menu (such as taramosalata or even plain old french fries) had been removed. When we asked for a side of mayonnaise, we were given a snow-white fluffy concoction that had nothing to do with mayonnaise and resembled whipped cream. When we complained, an irate middle age man who said he was the manager told us that "this is how we make it here". One of us then got up and went to the nearby market and brought a jar of mayonnaise. That manager then became even more rude and told us not to use it. He then went inside and came back with some real mayonnaise that he said he had just made and that was fine. The experience made us vow never to go back. This is sad because, for many years, that same restaurant had been consistently good and had consistently served excellent food.

generally a good hotel in a reasonable price which is ideal for families with children. big clean rooms with nice hotel facilities such us pool, etc i book a room with half board so in package lunch was included. food even if it wasn't bad needs improvement. if u book superior room with sea view then you are going to enjoy a spacious balcony with great view.

We had a blast during our stay in dolphin bay. There are so many different things to do in this resort. We are tennis lovers and finding a hotel in Syros with a tennis court has unreal. Everyone is very kind especially at the restaurant and at the reception. Highly recommended
