Definitely highly recommend this hotel. Stayed there 10 nights in mid-late August. We (family of four with two mid-teenagers) received drinks as we checked in, there was complimentary water and wine in the room, we had previously emailed and requested interconnecting rooms which we got. And we were not Elite, this was in Deluxe room with sea view, 3rd floor, main building (seems this was the only option for a party of four, the website advertises suites as only suitable for maximum 3). A very safe Blue Flag beach, lovely large pool, gym and spa, I'm sure the hotel was full but it never felt like it. The staff were brilliant, special mention to Petroella and Tasos in Emerald restaurant who looked after us every night, dinner under the stars (and loved practising our Greek with them!).
Yes, the service wasn't especially fast in the poolside bar or beach bar ... but what's the rush, we were on holiday, relaxing, not stressing ! Although interesting to see a change of behaviour at the pool bar when the manager turned up at lunchtimes, suddenly he had the staff all running around ! A good and clean hotel, very well laid out, the variety of food morning and night in Emerald was amazing. A well stocked onsite mini market with reasonable prices too. And a waterpark just down the road for the kids ! We had free wi-fi too. For a five star hotel I would have expected tea/coffee making facilities in every room (not just Elite). and we did pay €40 for a late checkout (1800 hrs), others have commented they were not charged. Please can I have my €40 back ?
Overall a top holiday hotel destination, well located and would highly recommend it.
