A 4* hotel as opposed 5*. Main building rooms ain't 5*- normal size room as you'd find any 3star hotel. If you want the larger rooms them pay the premium and book executive etc. Seems twin beds is common even when requested double and some balconies shared. Some nice touches though such as beach wifi, towels changed twice a day... More

Just back after spending 2 weeks at this immaculate resort, upon arrival we were given an room which was over the bridge with balcony views over the beech bar pool. This was because our mountain view room which was originally booked wasn't available till the next day. Once transferred to our original booking we wasn't disappointed with views over the... More

Great hotel, great location, great staff, my room was a garden view on the ground floor, it was spacious, always clean, mattress could have been a little firmer, on the beach, I would highly recommend this hotel, I can't fault it in any way it was just what I needed for a holiday.

Having a great time here, we thoroughly recommend it! Really comfortable beds, we've slept like babies every night, the air conditioning gets the room like a fridge really quickly and there's a good powerful shower. Room spotless and there are comfortable seats on balcony. Great location for walking into Platanias for dinner and loads of decent restaurants to choose from.... More

We usually avoid writing reviews because the truth is on the beholder's eyes. But it would be a shame not to make an exception this time, after the non-stop pampering we got. Location: As stated in other reviews, the hotel is split in two parts, one by the beach and the other close to the main road. The 2 parts... More

For us the hotel fell just short of 5 stars. The food was OK and very varied, with a large buffet style selection for breakfast and dinner. Service was good, other than the inanely grinning girls greeting you to every meal and asking if you had nice day. A little OTT I think every meal. Also they don't tell you... More

Months ago, I booked an imperial wing beachfront room. We had been looking forward to our beach front accommodations as a highlight of our trip. I arrive to find the room not available and an "upgrade" to a pool room about a football field back from the beach. I would not have booked this room - and should have cancelled... More

After about 30 hours of travel, we have arrived to find out that they overbooked the room from our non-refundable reservation. It is our honeymoon. Staff have been nice, facilities at Imperial side (where we had paid more to stay) are quite comfortable, very clean. Unfortunately, would not have stayed here if the room we'd booked was not available (wanted... More
