We stayed in the hotel for a week and we had an absolutely amazing time at Peninsula hotel celebrating our blessing ceremony on the 7th July! Before even arriving at the hotel we were assured that everything will be taken care of and we were looked after very well by all staff and had the most stress-free wedding you could... More

We stayed here for a week in July all inclusive and had a lovely time. We paid slightly more for a sea view bungalow and would definitely recommend this - the views were beautiful and there was a short cut staircase to the restaurant. The rooms were beautiful and always very clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The... More

Just returned from a weeks break here and I must say that the location, food, cleanliness etc are all fine. I would warn you to be sure about the type of room you have booked. We booked a Family Bungalow for two adults and two children based upon the fantastic descriptions portrayed on the website. When we arrived we were... More

Brilliant food, rooms, pools, staff, drinks, I'm vegetarian, and there was loads for me to choose from. You must be able to climb steps though as the hotel is on a hill - good for the legs though :) There are 4 pools (one for toddlers, one near the hotel, one lower down - salt water, and then the bottom...

We had amazing time in Greece. Hotel itself was very nice and clean. I will never forget how amazing was the view from the hotel. You have three different kind of beaches to choose from and couple of swimming pools. The food selection was fine, but it could have been better. I would recommend to visit the local restaurants where... More

This hotel is at a very good location, on a peninsula as the name suggests! But this is an all-inclusive hotel. So expect old people and families with children and cheesy entertainment. The hotel has nice pools and nice beaches, we rented a vespa and drove around (bad idea, people drive quite fast and the roads are not very good... More

The resort is situated on a great spot with lovely panoramic views of the sea. My room was ideal: very clean, absolutely no clutter and a very nice balcony with seating - where I spent the sunset hours reading and relaxing whilst enjoying the fantastic view. The sea by the hotel was something else. I love swimming and found that... More
