We stayed there in August 2012 ie last summer. It was good - we spent most of the time with our young daughter in the hotel swimming pools, the one with three in a row (different levels). These pools are good - the first lowest pool is smallest and shallow, the middle one is larger and deeper, and the third and largest is much deeper - easily suitable for adults.
We spent 90% of our time in the smaller two pools, as my daughter is learning to swim. It was really good fun; we made friends with anoher family with a similar aged daughter so they spent most of the time playing.
Food was good; we only stayed for one week so it was no problem. It was a bit like other package holidays in that I would imagine if we had stayed for two weeks it would not have been the most amazing food, but nothing to complain about, really.
Lunch in the small indoor pool place (near the three pools I'm talking about) was ok as a light lunch, plus they do drinks. Staff were friendly. Room was good.
Our absoulte main complaint is the lack of sun loungers. Yes - we had to do that thing where you go out warly to grab some, becuase there is not enough. I find that so frustrating I can't tell you. I *hate* going out to do battle to get some sun loungers, it's just ridiculous when you've paid a few thousand pounds for a holiday. Hopefully they will supply more, in which case I would increase my star rating.
We would stay there again, depending on price. This year we're going to a similar hotel on Kos, so it all depends on prices for these sorts of similar hotels, in my opinion.
