Beautiful place and perfect service. I wish I will go back there some day again! Weather was around 20-23 in mid of April. Sun not strong yet. Great for hiking and laying around the pool. Water in the sea still cold for swimming, but I did it once!

I don't recommend anyone going to this pool-bar. You can't enjoy eating nor relaxing. Imagine making an order of black coffee and you get an iced latte instead, and then you're told - "Try it! It's good." Then you pay and you get the wrong sum back and point it out. When back at the pool personnel from the bar...

Family of three (son 10 years old) stayed at the lovely ideal beach hotel for two weeks. The rooms are in a need for refurbishing. The kitchen at the room is too small to really use.

Right on the beach and near the picturesque pool. Pretty good food, nice selection, but really nice atmosphere and shows/music entertainers. Sunday's and Wednesday's are the best. The one guy is not the best singer but is really great entertainment. My 2 year old would not stop dancing, the wife and I as well. Really great family fun.

Me and 2 friends stayed at this lovely hotel for a week in July. Best "greece" hotel I have stayed at. The standard was very good and everything, incl the shower, felt really clean. Felt like a resort hotel. Right at the beach, pool (great for families), simple but good breakfast and really nice staff. Clean rooms everyday and the...

Hotel was clean, room big for our 4 member family. View wasn't so nice but we didn't ay for sea view. Personnel was extrimely nice, especially when our aircon broke down. Breakfast was quite nice. Nothing special but included also some local treats. Beach sets cost extra, Not much but for hotel customers they should be free... Beach was good...

I have been using this hotel for the third time, and quite like it more and more. It's not the best in the region but it has what you need, and it's very close to the beach which again is great :-) The beach bar is excellent. Sun beds are a bit expensive at €4 each.
