We have eat here for 5 years and each year the standard keeps slipping. This year we had the buffet which was absolutely horrible. It was cold at 7.30 in the evening. Fortunately the deserts was Really good as you cannot go wrong with Greek yoghurt and fruit and sweet cakes. We also felt rushed because the complimentary raki was... More

I have not stayed at The Alianthos Beach.. but have eaten there very many times over recent years. The main feature of the restaurant is a very wide ranging buffet.. come back for top ups.. for 9 Euros.. excellent value for money. There is also a good a la carte menu. Obviously the buffet is immediately available while a la... More

We just spent 4 nights at the apartments which belong to the hotel. It had a view of the sea, great bathroom, big balcony and fantastic wifi. The beds were very hard but the place is great value nonetheless. Highlight: the staff were wonderful - great advice about secret beaches etc.

A really nice and friendly hotel with nice food. But the room quality varies Majorly from room to room, ask for a better room, if you do not like the one you got. Otherwise nothing to complain about. A really nice hotel.

Great place on the corner across from the beach. Rooms were ok, nothing special but clean and useful. You get to use the pool at the Garden hotel next door which is great. The thing that sets this hotel apart from others we have stayed at is the front desk service. Can't say enough about Daphne at the front desk,... More

The hotel is superb, and right next to a fabulous sandy beach with a clothes optional section. Although the hotel is not top of the range, it does what it does very well indeed. The food is delicious, and very varied from day to day, and the welcome is genuine and very friendly. The only minor criticism is that there... More
