“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Just arrived back after spending a week at the Delfini with my fiancée, his son [12] my son and his friend [both 23] my twin boys [8] and my parents [75] my parents have been coming to the Delfini for 25 years and this is my sixth year. I couldn't understand why my parents kept returning to the same hotel but within ten minutes of arriving I knew why. Set right on the beach the setting is incredible and amazing views. The hotel staff are friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Rooms are basic but comfortable and the food is good. If you didn't want to eat at the hotel Nidri is only a short walk with lots of fantastic places to eat and bars which are open until the early hours. This year we went with Ocean Elements what can I say but fantastic, there was something for everyone. They had a kids club which had the twins entertained all day windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, dinghy and power boats it was never ending they loved it the reps were brilliant. It all has to be seen to be believed.

I could roll out of bed and be in the ocean it's that close! The rooms are basic but has everything you need. Make sure you get AC included in your room price. The staff are really nice and if you are there with ocean elements their staff are also absolutely brilliant! Great holiday, great resort, great staff, all round just great!!

Room Tip: Get AC included in your room price

We stayed here as booked through Ocean Elements (will review that separately) on a last minute holiday.
For photos - see their website http://www.delfini-holidays.com as this is exactly how it is.
The rooms are a good size, kept clean with comfortable beds, a tv if you watch it and a fridge. Take a travel kettle if you like a hot drink in bed (or on the balcony). The fridge is a decent size and there were no complaints that we'd got a kettle!. Take a hairdryer also as there isn't one in the room.
The balcony overlooked the next building (Avra) but we moved our chairs and we could see the sea. There are two buildings, we had room 23 which is in the building further away from the sea so quieter perhaps than being in the building at the front (above the restaurant and sea side). The balcony got the sun from midday and it was hot on an evening. Air con cooled the room on an evening and the shutters kept out the light.
The breakfast was good for what we paid - not fresh orange or coffee which was a shame but there was an orange drink, instant coffee and tea bags. There was a hot option - bacon omelette which was lovely, scrambled egg on toast or a fried egg roll. Then the usual breads, croissants, jams, meat, cheese, cereals and variations of hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, water melon on different days.
We ate there at lunchtime and the lunches were really nice - Greek fare, freshly prepared so there's time for a beer while you wait.
We also ate there for the Greek Night as this was arranged by Ocean Elements. This was a starter buffet of salads, either pork kebab or chicken (the chicken was by far the better option as there was more meat than on the pork skewer). Both were served with potatoes but two pork skewers would have been better than one. Wine was included, together with a Greek dessert and a drink after the meal.There were quite a lot of us so the main course which was served came to different people at different times.
The Greek dancers were enthusiastic and liked everyone to join in - it was funny. Worth doing if you've never done it before.
The hotel is right on the beach and everything is nearby. The views are stunning.
For the right price we wouldn't hesitate to go back and will recommend.

I don`t really want to praise anywhere I enjoy so that it stays the way I had it for my future visits ,selfish I know, But the trip here with Ocean Elements was so good ,so Greece as it should be , so much to do , so much to experience, so here is my review.
Perfect location , perfectly cleaned daily , friendly hotel staff , brilliant Ocean Elements team and abundant activities and kit to enjoy the area both on and off the water. If you appreciate a good Greek family owned and run pension hotel with a million dollar location then this ticks the box .I came here last in 1995 and it is as I remember it, amazing view at breakfast facing the Onassis Island and the blue Ionian Sea. Sheltered waters with sand under your toes just a meter or so off from the smooth shingle beach. Sublime.
Great tavernas with or without sea views in the town, no loud music or all day English breakfast type places that ruin the Greek vibe and certainly no golden arches.
Beautiful island to explore both inland and along the coast.
I went with my Brother and it is perfect for families or couples and I will try to return for another week later this season and also next year.
I stayed in room 23, on the side of the hotel, which caught the sun all afternoon and evening until it set behind the hills. It had a large balcony looking down through the shade trees onto the beach and beyond to the other islands.
All the other guests were very friendly and conversations soon struck up during sundowners.
Beautifully active and relaxing holiday in the most friendly picturesque Greek part of Greece I have experienced.
So for totally selfish reasons please don`t come here and spoil my lovely part of Greece. Take only pictures. leave only footsteps.

Stayed as part of an Ocean Elements package and had a really enjoyable week. Lucky enough to have the room with possibly the best view, number 28. Stopped bothering to eat out at night as the hotel evening meals were very good and great value and you couldn't beat just sitting out in the dining area under the trees with a sea view. Beach was stoney but fine in beach shoes and gently shelving so very safe swimming. Would highly recommend for both families and couples.

It has been about 10 years since I've visited this place which would of made me 12 years old! But as we visited here 8 years in a row the memories still stay with me. The friendly owners could not do enough for you and all in all was just a beautiful place in a beautiful location! Not far at all from the town center and plenty to do. Brilliant family holiday or for couples!

Reading the other reviews, there is not a lot to add:I can't say enough good things about this hotel:the people that work there, or it's location..perfect, amazing, way above anything we expected. Clean rooms,amazingly nice owners who speak several lang's, right on the water, shade or sun, excellent taverna, central location to everything..so so recommend!!! You instantly feel at home! So beautiful. All I can say to sum it up, if you are looking for a great vacation this place won't disappoint you!!

Room Tip: ASk for a sea veiw, if they have one free they will gladly give you it
