the hotel was perfect, bedroom and all of the other stuff like pools,bars,beach everything was great. Food was amazing, you have a varied selection of dishes. Beach was really good and we had so much fun. The animation team was 100% the best!! I really enjoyed the aqua gymnastic with Isabell, I want to commend each animator for a great program. Luciano did a great job. The night programs was amazing, like cabarett, live shows, competitions and everything was perfect!!! Thank u so much for the best 12 days in my life, hope i will see u again. I miss this hotel so much

I was here in June 2021 when the hotel again open the doors, so it was perfect time because hotel wasnt full and there were always places on the beach or swimming pool. Hotel looks older, but always clean everywhere. Rooms are standards with climatization, own safe in the room for free, hair dryer and every day cleaned up in the morning. Food was tasty, but i expected more variety of food, mainly seafood or more types of fish. But ok, u can find something to eat all day long. Once a week u can use a la carte restaurant (greek food) Area around both swimming pool is perfect, but there is guard so can't drink beer in the pool :D Beach is short, so there are just two rows with seats. You can get beach towels for 10e deposit. In the sea there rocks after 6-7m, but on the left side next to water sports is only sand. But now, the best in the end :D i was in lot of 4,5,6 stars hotel in Greece, Turkey,.... But here is the best staff i have ever seen. In the beach is Mr. Fantastic who stars work at 17:00 and he always makes smile in your face. Every day. Thank you Giorgios. And then animation team. They are also very funny a friendly. Every day activies like water gym, petang, table tennis and more and more. In the evening mini disco for children a then some program for adults. You should also try aperitive game in the noon for some extra drink. Funny games but i have never won :( Don't be shy, if they call you play something there are two options: Yes or Yes :D really best team and i hope we will see again VASILIJ, LUCIANO, ISABELLA, AMELIA, ALINA <3

The time in the hotel was really amazing! The beach, the pool, the stuff... everything was great! But the animation team was the best from the hotel, every day many activities like aqua gym with Isabella was the best aqua gym I ever do! The shows was really great and Luciano the Chef of the Animation Team create an amazing Team!!!

Now this is what I call a vacation! The receptionists granted us with a smile and a delicious lemonade, we even got our luggage carried to the Room, excellent service! The Rooms are reasonably sized & very clean, always in close proximity to either the first pool or the beach. The Bed's also very comfy, the bathroom is sufficient. The Restaurant has delicious food with a lot of variety, with a live cook that prepares fresh fish& meat dishes. The Waiters are super friendly and keep everything clean & tidy, just amazing! One of the Highlights is the Beach Bar, with fantastic Barkeeper(s) who kees up the mood & serve great drinks& Cocktails. What made this one unforgettable for us was the AMAZING animation team, always organizing some kind'a event (beachvolleyball, watergym, funny games & amazing shows at the amphipient theater). Check out one of their shows, you're not gonna regret it ;) The Hotel lays directly at the beach, with a beautiful sea & a lot of fish to see (Great for snorkeling). The main street is littered with bars, clubs, restaurants & travernas. Prefect for a restaurant visit with the following bar tour! Definetly check out Carlies Bar, amazing Owner & the vibe's just perfect, they serve excellent Cocktails & food made with <3 So, in conclusion, we would not only stay here again... we will :)
