Me and my family stayed here last month and we absolutely loved it. Loads to do for the kids, disco for them was brilliant and the water park was absolutely amazing my son keeps asking to go back. The food in all the restaurants was top notch and all the staff where brilliant. The only negative things I could say is the pool tables and air hockey tables could do with replacing and also the amount of wast plastic used at the bars is quite bad ie loads and loads of pointless plastic straws and throw away plastic cups that are ending up in oceans and damaging marine life it would be a great thing if they could maybe swap the straws for cardboard and maybe biodegradable plastic cups

We stayed in a suite with the sea view. It is really superb. It has a private swimming pool area which is very quiet. It was fantastic to swim there during the days and in the evenings. The food, drinks and service in restaurants is very good, especially a-la-cart restaurants: italian, greek and asian. The main restaurant is also good and offers a large variety of food, but a bit noisy in rush hours. Especially, we are very much thankful to the staff who were very kind to us while our daughter fell ill. Liza at the reception and Alexandra from guest relations really made our stay perfect despite the difficulties that we had. While our girl needed a special diet they made their best to organize it in the restaurants. Valentina in the greek restaurant was very attentive to us each time we came. And it was a real pleasure when the hotel personnel brought to our room a big pink toy cat, our girl was very surprised and happy to receive it! The hotel has a good animation program for kids and adults, with mini club conditioned area by the pool, darts, aqua aerobics and other activities. We also enjoyed two aqua parks - one small by the sea, however, very interesting with several slides, and one big new one with a variety of modern fascinating slides. Overall, we definitely recommend this hotel and would like to come back here again.

I cannot fault this hotel in the slightest. There are no complaints whatsoever. We have just returned from a week staying at Stella Palace and everything was great. The food in the dining room was delicious, great choice and great service. Special mention to Nefeli who always took a moment to speak to us and ask how our day was. Just lovely. The bars are great too, nothing is too much trouble. Special thanks to Nikos who made us delicious mint and strawberry mocktails on our last day. Such a nice bartender. Also to Stella who makes you feel like you are the only customer in the world and she is delighted to help you. The pools are great, very clean and not cold at all. Guest relations girls in the main lobby were excellent at booking our excursions for us. Hotel entertainment team do their utmost to ensure you have a great time. The "passport" show in the amphitheatre was excellent. All in all a wonderful holiday and we wished we'd booked for two weeks! Will definitely return Thank you to all at Stella Palace

my mum, grandma and mine experience in this village was gourgeous and unforgettable! the village is well organized: it is full of swimming pools, services, mediterranean plants, children/adult activities, evening events, bars (drinks all inclusive) and it is very close to the airport and the main harbour. Moreover the landscape is magnificent and the village is close to the beach. The staff is very professional and extremely friendly: they were always smiling and ready to help you. In particular we would like to thank a very cheerful and gentle waiter (unfortunately we don't know his name.... he was so lovely!) and Miss Iliana Goupe. She was really kind and she helped us to organize our trips outside the village. Our room was very cosy, clean and big. We really loved the welcoming with the bottle of wine and the baklava! delicious! The spa was relaxing and also the restaurant was marvelous: always a big choise of different and tasty international and traditional food.... my grandma was found of it! well.... what else to say? we recommend it to everybody! we belive it is one of our best holidays in our lives. We thanks stella palace and their staff!

Hi stayed here for a week, booked through Thomas Cook. The hotel is great, the staff are very friendly and very attentive. Would like to say the availability of the themed restaurant is quite poor, but if you do get a slot. You won't be disappointed. We wanted a bit of a local theme, so we booked the cretan night. The restaurant and staff are great, the food was amazing, you could probably extend the starters from just one set menu per night. But it did mean we tried something we normally wouldn't. The mains were great and the special I had was amazing, loved the goat. Overall the whole holiday was great, shame the tour operator made it a bit disappointing, over booking the return coach, and having no rep to speak to the driver who spoke little English, 40 minutes late leaving the hotel. Would just like to say we'd happily recommend the hotel, great place to relax and enjoy sun.
