Location is very good, everything you need is right behind the corner. Nice pool area and beautiful, relaxing sea view. The staff is very friendly, the service is more personal compared to bigger hotels. Breakfast was limited but plentyful. This was our first time experiencing ala carte-breakfast, we still prefer buffet a bit more. Arriving at the hotel we found that out toilet wasn't flushing at all. Because we arrived so late in the evening, there was no one in the reception and we were forced to wait for the repair until next morning. The reception was supposed to be open at 10-18 but often there was somebody only few hours in the morning or afternoon, at least now in October. We were disappointed with our room; it was smaller than we had excepted, the kitchen area is very compact, we barely could open the fridge door. The bed was uncomfortable and the mattresses were too hard. Also the pillows were poor, we couldn't sleep with them at all. Toilet was also too small and the hight of the shower head can't be changed, so it's too high for a shorter person. In our point of view the rooms would need some renovating.

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights early October, the check in staff were very friendly and informative we were given a refreshing welcome drink and sit by the pool before being taken to our room, a complimentary bottle of Greek wine left in our room, towels and linen tidied and changed regularly, beach towels were available in the room free of charge, staff happy to recommend local trips, the pool was smaller than the photos lead you to believe and not many sunbeds but as the time of year was out of the main season we didn’t struggle and there were plenty down on the beach, plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a few bars to drink in but the area seemed to be aimed at older groups, all in all a lovely hotel, our view unfortunately was of the car park so didn’t use the balcony at all which was a shame but appears only the 1 and 2 bed apartments have pool and sea views

The location on the beach was amazing. The staff were super friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast is second to none especially because it was served by Gina who we miss already. It is so nice to have breakfast served instead of buffet. Good restaurants very close by. We will definitely go again. Stefanos and Vaggelis in the bar were fantastic. You can swim in the pool while looking at the Sea. Highly recommend it.

Right on the beach, receptionist is extremely friendly and kind. Clean beach area and hotel. I’m pregnant and reception asked multiple times if it was okey for me that our room was on the second floor. This was perfectly okey with me but I don’t doubt that she would have switched the room if this was a problem. Room was nice and as described on the website, beds are nice and there are extra pillows if you ask for it. Good small kitchen,coffeemaker and boiler. Only thing that makes this a 4 and not a 5 is that the bathroom smells a bit funny. Looking forward to our last days :)
