Fantastic hotel, fantastic view, excellent personnel, pools like diamonds...which I enjoy every year! The breakfast is very good with a big variety of choices. The weather was a little bit cold and I couldnt enjoy enough the pools. The room was very clean and the view over the aegean sea was fantastic!
