A beach hotel with plenty of loungers on beach. We had a side sea view which was lovely. we enjoyed a romantic fortnight in a traditional greek village and lovely views from the hotel. Wi fi was free and gave us no problems. Alexander and Elvira were very attentive and friendly in the restaurant and we looked forward to seeing... More

We were on a family trip for a week, and had high expectations and were looking forward to real greek hospitality and a relaxing week. We were thoroughly disappointed. We arrived at two in the night after a long flight, and were met by an annoyed, sleepy receptionist after we had stood waiting for ten minutes. He had no information... More

We stayed as a couple the second week in July. In general the staff were friendly and helpful, especially at the pool bar. We had some good tips from staff on excursions both organised and those we could do ourselves, as we had a hire car. Bad points - the shower does leak water into the bathroom. This is a... More

On checking in were were not advised about the facilities, ie that there was a gym or indoor pool. Room very small, smallest we have ever experienced in a hotel or in apartments. Only chairs were on balcony which was compact to say the least. Not much room for 2 people. Most of the staff very friendly and helpful, especially... More

10 members of my family spent 7 days at this hotel. The problems started at check-in, where the hotel had made a mistake so we were one room short. Four of us had to share a room for the first two days, which was ok, mistakes can happen from the hotels side, but the problem was how the staff handled... More

Bedroom itself was fine but shower room very small and from time to time smelly, breakfasts were rather dull. Some of the staff were great particularly Manolis on reception and Michaelis and his female colleague on the pool bar, one of the waiters on the pool bar was rude and sarcastic and unhelpful when my wife asked for wineglasses..

The location as well as the staff was great but as the title suggest, no value for money. Room was to small, not even a seating area, food was repetitive and you cannot turn off the ceiling fan. The only positive thing is freshly squeezed orange juice.

We have been coming to this hotel on a B&B basis since 1998 and it just gets better each year. The staff and facilities are everything one could wish for a relaxing carefree holiday.
