Stylish interiors, gorgeous grounds and the staff were just amazing. Especially Marieta who we saw every day for breakfast and dinner. The room was beautiful. The only downside to the room was that the TV only showed the news and it would have been nice to be able to watch a movie late at night. Great DJ by the pool. The food was delicious. The staff at the pool serving drinks and food worked so hard in 30 degree heat, always looking immaculate and smiling. I didn't realise there were two sandy coves which are privately owned by the hotel so that was an added bonus.

I cannot put into words how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at Abaton Island Resort & Spa. We stayed Villa #2 - and I must admit we owe our entire stay to ou personal concierge Nole !!!! He was absolutely amazing. There are not enough words to properly explain how relaxing and seamless he made our stay. He greeted us from the moment we arrived, gave us a tour of the entire property, and was at our disposal for the duration of our trip. He made our dinner reservations, organized us to spend some nights outside of the resort (downtown at amazing local spots), and even connected us with someone in Santorini for the 2 nights we spent there (who then made all of our lunch, beach cabana and dinner reservations in Santorini). Nole always ensured we had everything we needed, and always checked-in to make sure we were choosing the best food and wine options at each restaurant! His recommendations did not disappoint. The villa: aside from the absolutely breathtaking and spotlessly clean decor indoors, the villa came with its own pool and hot tub and had direct views of the beach. Along with the villa came an abundance of perks - as mentioned, our personal concierge Nole made our trip all that it was. We always had great seats at the restaurants and were treated like royalty everywhere we went! The restaurants - we do not have a complaint about any. The staff at each restaurant were all awesome. Boney Fish House - by far our favorite! the lobster pasta is out of this world. WOWW Steak House - also AMAZING. a lot of food - so go hungry! Elmes - we loved this spot for breakfast. We did a tasting menu one night for dinner too, which was also delicious. Buddha beach bar - we never ate dinner here, but spent a majority of our days at the pool using their food and drink service. The service here was outstanding - all of the staff was extremely attentive, and the proximity of the pool to the beach was great. The spa - we chose to do the couples massage and were extremely happy with the service. Was a great choice after our long flight! If you are willing to splurge, I HIGHLY recommend a villa stay (with Nole as your concierge specifcally!!). We will absolutely be back!!!

This is a stunning place, very clean, room fabulous. BUT, there is nowhere to go in this amazing place to get away from the music! I was on the beach and could hear the pounding of the music, it is more the BOOM BOOM constantly. Left the beach to go to the room to escape and even by our own pool, you cannot escape it. Got a migraine coming on and have had to come indoors. So, stunning place but not for you if you want peace and quiet. My head is thumping along with the music! It would have got 5 stars if it had not been for this thumping music!

We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by a cold welcome drink and shown to our sea view rooms which were extremely well equipped and exceptionally clean. The following morning we could appreciate just how stunning this resort is. We sampled all of the restaurants (except Bony Fish) and found the food to be excellent - yes it's expensive but we enjoyed them all. We too had read the reviews of intrusive music around the pool, personally we enjoyed it as it created atmosphere (and we are way older than 30) although we did mention to the DJ we would like him to play tracks with lyrics as it wasn't so monotonous - and he did. There are so many beautiful area's in the resort we were spoilt for choice and there were no issues getting a bed around the pool. The staff at The Budda Beach Bar are amazing, friendly and extremely helpful - Christa, Agnis, Ava & Elena - thank you (sorry if we have missed anyone) We attended a great wine tasting session with the lovely Anastasia - who is very knowledgeable but made it fun at the same time. We were in contact with the concierge service throughout our stay and Olga was fantastic, quickly getting back to us with any questions and requests. The staff work long hours here but are always polite, friendly and really can't do enough for you. Thank you Abaton Island we had an amazing holiday and would love to come back. Oh and the air conditioning is fabulous - quiet and very efficient - made for a greats nights sleep.

We booked a very expensive beachfront king room with pool. The room itself was very good and the in-house restaurants ok but expensive. We anticipated a peaceful, relaxing holiday but this was not to be the case. Loud techno music plays throughout the resort ( emanating from the ghastly Buddha Bar) and plays most of the day. You cannot escape it. If you are aged under 30 and have no desire to sleep much before midnight this place is ideal. Otherwise ; think again. We are still here at the moment but hoping to move out tomorrow. Rod Gibson

When we first arrived at Abaton, it was breathtaking. The front desk staff was very accommodating. We arrived early prior to the check in time and the hotel staff was able to get us in our room with a small (~1 hour) wait. When we arrived to our room, it was beautiful as well and very spacious. Everything was just like the pictures we saw online. We opted for the Abaton Collection Suite with sharing pool. As a welcome gift, we were delivered a bottle of wine, water, a bowl of fruit, and some delicious desserts. We were celebrating my birthday. The hotel went above and beyond to make me a delicious cake. These were the highlights to our stay. Now, let’s pull back the curtains…. The customer service is lacking severely. As stated, the front desk staff were very accommodating and provided great customer service. Unfortunately, this did not spill down to other areas in the hotel. Our first day, we ate the late breakfast at the Elemes Cretan Cuisine restaurant. Our waitress, Chrissa, was extremely disrespectful. She did not take our drink order. We had to ask another waiter for drinks. When we received the drinks, she never once refilled our drinks. We repeatedly saw her refill drinks of everyone else in the restaurant (it was small). When we asked for anything, she had an attitude, and I saw her roll her eyes several times. She did not want to serve us and made it plain and clear. Later that day we made it to the main pool. We didn’t know how to open the chair umbrellas or if we were allowed to open them ourselves. So, we asked one of the bar servers for help. He ignored us. We asked again, again ignored. Finally, he says, “what is it that you want!?”. Ignoring his tone, we asked for help with the beach umbrella. He proceeds to say that is not his job and went back to what he was doing. He never once went and got us any help. This is only a few instances of what we experienced. I can say we always had great customer service at the main, buffet, restaurant. I think the hostess name was Maria. She was exceptionally nice. The hotel has no entertainment. Around 9pm the hotel is a ghost town. I think most guests leave and travel to the city center area. We learned this a little too late into our trip. The food and drinks were overly priced. Drinks were around 18 – 22 euros a piece. Food started around 32 euros. It was ridiculous. Once we found the city center area, the same foods and drinks that were served at the hotel were significantly reduced (~9 euros). I would suggest skip every restaurant at the hotel and travel 5 minutes down the road and get your money worth. A few suggestions, King Scorpio & Delly’s lounge/restaurant. That entire area has loads of restaurants and night life. I can say, I will never stay at Abaton again. I almost allowed the terrible treatment we received to mess up our entire vacation. I’m happy we encountered some great people outside of the resort that showed us the hospitality we deserved.

Stunning location, scenes at every pool area are breath taking. We visited for the day with 3 adults a 2 year old and a 5 month old. Unfortunately the parasols were not allowed up at all during the course of the day due to the wind. We spoke to another couple with their small baby who were staying at the hotel and they experienced the same issue as us with shade hunting for little ones. Besides this the visit was lovely, hotel is gorgeous would make a lovely venue for a wedding. Food at the Buddha bar beach club was delicious. We’ve since been to other beach clubs with the kids and they either have heavier bases for the parasols or have them fixed in with a sturdier frame. It’s a shame as this is a family friendly hotel but can’t provide shade for baby’s if the wind is blowing.

The best hotel I’ve ever been to. Superb location and the view from every part of the hotel is amazing. The staff are excellent from reception to the restaurants to the guys bringing you drinks by the pool. Even the guys by the pool who sort out the towels for the sun beds or put up/down the parasols are all friendly and want to help. WOW steak restaurant was the best - a bit pricey but worth it for one night. Busy towns just a mile or so in either direction for a change of scenery on an evening. We spent most days by the superb pool and hardly left our sun loungers as drinks were delivered to us. The rooms are great and we had a sea view for miles around - the whole place is modern and spotless, with all staff working hard to keep it that way. Overall a superb 5 star hotel in a beautiful location and definitely a great place for couples and families alike.
