We have planned this holiday well in advance and here is what we got upon our arrival (June 2016). 1. Unprofessional and rude receptionists, trying to threat (!!!) the... More

Everything in this place is recommendable! From the moment of arrival until our departure it was a great experience. The organisation and architecture of the hotel is such, that at no time I felt overwhelmed. It feels like a large family. The staff is exceptional! - it's willingness to help, to listen, to do something is just above the norm!... More

The Peninsula hotel is set in a quiet beautiful location with exceptional views. With extremely hard working friendly staff - in particular Amii and Pavlos in the main bar who were responsible for a couple of my husbands hanovers and Maria and Manos in the snack bar who couldn't do enough for you. Food is plentiful and with 2 fussy... More

Nice rooms with a great view, the roomcleaners also did a great job. The only downside is that our room was full of sow bugs, like everywhere. The food was good and different everyday. The beach bar is really nice to hang out. The animation is most of the time french but they are really nice! Special shoutout to Jennifer... More
