Each day we enjoyed a waterfront breakfast with almost anything you would desire available. The rooms were generous in size, extremely clean and well maintained. It was a little expensive but I...

Although the resort seems to show its limits here and there, the cleanliness and overall maintenance is impeccable. So is the staff, as they seem genuinely interested in making your stay as good as possible. But the best is the food, very varied and plentiful - we had the option to order a la carte but we preferred the bouffet.... More

Breakfast buffet is rich though this is not particularly the case for the dinner buffet. Would recommend one of their other restaurants. Rooms are renovated but there is definitely room for improvement in terms... More

In short, we absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend the hotel to anyone - both families and couples or groups travelling without kids. We had initially booked a... More

We have only eaten breakfast at the hotel restaurants as we like to try different places, but the brekfast has been good with greek and international choises,... More

An excellent choice. We stayed there only one night as we chose it being next door to a venue of a wedding we were attending two weeks ago. We enjoyed the beautifully decorated room, excellent mattress on a bed with nice fine sheets, a cool bathroom, ample balcony with a nice set of chairs and table also a very nice... More
