However except for ice cream and some free drinks at the beach we were charged for everything else. They even charged us for espresso at... More

We stayed for 10 days in early August and were really impressed with the set up of the resort and its ideal location so close to the vibrant village of Agia Pelagia. Having the village on your doorstep with a vast choice of restaurants and bars is a huge selling point.The setting is beautiful with spectacular views. We were enthused... More

Family of 5. Children aged 3, 5 and 7. This resort is aimed at the Russian market. Tacky and distasteful bling replaces traditional Greek. Very small pools for a hotel this size. Children's lower pool smelt of sewage. Pool was surrounded by grass which quickly turned to mud. Pool dirty and no filtration evident. Children's upper pool much nicer, but... More
