A very pleasent stay, excellent staff (typically Greek) good hotel accommodation, very good food and plenty of drinks, the wife even said they had some nice cocktails!! As with most all inclusive hotels nowadays after 11pm you have to pay for the drinks. The food was very good, all meal times had plenty of options to choose from. There were... More

Hotel Solimar Aquamarine was a very good choice for our holiday. We spent a relaxing 7 days in this beautiful and friendly place. What I will always remember is that there are extremely nice people working in this hotel – Aris, Justyna, Filippos and many more. However the evening we enjoyed the best was when mr. Andreas Salmanis made his... More

Stayed at the hotel for one week in June. Hotel was good value for the price we paid for the holiday and the facilities, room and services were more than adequate. Swimming pool was particularly good - not overrun with water polo games and aqua classes. Just a good old fashioned swimming pool that was the perfect temperature and great... More

Great place with very friendly stuff. Maybe beach near hotel is ugly, but You can rent a car and visit Elafonissi or Falasarna. Maybe food is everyday the same, but tastes great. Maybe there is not a lot of entertainment, but have You ever swim in Your own pool under the stars!? If You are Polish it's hotel for You,... More

We could not fault the service at the Solimar the rooms were serviced every day and spotlessly clean. The restaurant was run efficiently and the food was generally very good... More

When we arrived, there was a problem with our room, so they moved us to another very good hotel for one night. We paid for a room, with it's own pool, which was better than we anticipated, facing the sea. The Rooms Manager Katerina Stefanoudaki, could not have been more helpful, as is the case with all the staff. She... More
