We’ve been using facilities of this hotel during our all-inclusive stay in Mandola rosa resort. We ordered our stay in Thalaso hotel, but it was full and we’ve got upgrade to Mandola rosa with using all inclusive packet in Thalaso.
Location - in the middle of nowhere – no chance for walk to local village or some shopping outside the resort. Minimarket in hotel, very small, just basic products for extra prices (sun cream – 25 Euro, bottle of table wine starting 6 Euro).
Room – we couldn't comment this on our experience as we stayed in Mandola rosa. Anyway one common issue we have heard was with limited sea view from rooms @ ground floor.
Travelers – We were choosing between Oasis and Thalaso resort and we decided for Thalaso based on reviews that this hotel should be quite with very limited number of child. We spent also 2 nights in Oasis and we can compare – Oasis 95% families with children, Thalaso – 80%. So from this point, not very big difference. Majority of travelers Russians.
Pools – highlight of the resort. Very spacious, clean, luxurious. Main pool was very busy with limited number of sunbeds. But you can stay by others which were mostly empty.
Beach – very nice, maintained, clean, flat access to sea, shallow and clean water. Sometime crowded but no real issue with number of sunbeds. Blue flag beach.
Food – we had a mix of feelings there. Of course because of the number of child was far away from quite romantic dinners by sun-set. Service was trying to do the best, they were trying to keep high standard. Quality of the food was from perfect – when serving capriccio - to zero – when you got tasteless pasta. Variety was very limited and strange was that during Greek’s night was the choice the best but not from Greek’s meals. Overall experience was better in Oasis hotel. Don't forget that in your Premium plus is one dinner a-la carte restaurant. That’s really different experience from every point.
Drinks @ bars – you should check what is free and what not. I really see strange when all inclusive guests are asked to pay extra for some drinks or ice creams, but it’s strategy of the hotel. Don't even think to travel to this resort without Premium plus packet, while single cocktail costs about 10 Euro. Prices in bars are 5*. Also it was quite strange that all resort had only one bar open during the day or evening. It was quite a challenge for stuff to serve everybody. During rush hours you have some delays, but if you imagine how many people they have to serve, it’s logical.
Thalaso SPA – in catalog there was written that Thalaso has inner pool. This pool should be available for use by guests. We were in this pool when we’ve got our compensation voucher (2x50 Euro). When we checked the conditions for accessing the facility, this is only way to get there. When you want to use that pool, you need to pay entrance fee and then you’ll get personal guidance to the attractions. It’s very strange when you’re alone in the pool and you’re telling somebody, please start this … then this etc. We will never pay 100 Euro for such an experience. Anyway, area of the pool, outside pools in Greek’s style, all buildings are very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor and let it confirmed when you want real sea view,

We stayed in oasis that is all inclusive. The hotel is in a marvelous area with a fantastic seaside with golden sand. The room was luxurious and big. The only disadvantage was that the bed was not a double one but 2 single beds put together. There is central airconditioning system. Breakfast was very good. I would strongly suggest this hotel as perfect value for money

Absolutely loved it. You need a car to stay here, it is a little out of the way, but only 20 mins drive to local shops etc. Fridge in room, so you can pick up supermarket shopping & store it easily.

Hotel is gorgeous, room beautiful with blue & white theme, which always looks very fresh. Fabulous views. Lovely breakfast and the nicest set of pools I have ever seen, including large infinity pools as weel as kids pool etc etc (& I am v.fortunate to have travelled a lot & seem some special ones).

Wish I could go back!!

We went to this resort for the Easter break which was about 240 euros per day all inclusive.

Great property with plenty of amenities, tennis/basket/bicycling/horse riding etc, of course most require some extra fee (horse riding/bikes). The hotel has many pools which are very well maintained and very clean. STAFF, very friendly polite and willing to help you.

Food buffet was more than adequate with respects to varierty. Chef's were not what I was expecting as Grecotels are famed for their top class Chef's. I did not taste this to be honest, average would be my best here. Cleanliness 100% here, rooms cleaned everyday with good service.

The rooms now, ok at least my room was not 5* standards. Bathroom less than average (bathroom had grey silicon to repair leaks which was very discouraging). The shower head in the bathroom was old and not in good condition although they are expensive sets, some definitely need changing.

The worst I have to comment is that the rooms are vertually not sound proof at all. Every person who would talk in the corridor felt like he was in the actual room. we would wake up several times due to this pproblem.

To sum it all up, I am not a person who would winge for minor items, but when your paying for 5* hotels, you expect 5* rooms/etc. Obviously in the summer time rates are at least 80/100 Euros more with only Breakfast.

May be in the summer, the hotel standards are increased, who knows.
The best part of this hotel is the area, absoletely 100% beautiful.

I would not pay more than 150 euros for the room I had in the summer time.

Cheers

Magnificent Hotel with very friendly generous management and personnel, nice clean rooms with spacious balconies, good seaview, delicious buffet meals, all located in a spacious inside Restaurant or if preferable outside but roofed. Four different swimming pools for children and adults. A well kept childrens nursery, and non -hazardous paths for a stroll after dinner. No charge sports activities like archery, darts ,four tennis courts (all provided with racquets and balls), boccia, volleyball, aquagymnastics, pool bar etc. Sightseeing : Olympia is only 60 Km away, the Strait of Corinth,about 200 km and Athens approx. 500 km distant. The overall Greek Economy may be in a bad state, but there are no signs of this at the Grecotel Olympia Riveira, Thalasso.The Greeks have a very special inheritance... their fabulous Hospitality and I would underline their Generosity and Humour. I would recommend any Guest to make his own personal experience. Should any problems arise speak politely to the personnel and your wishes will in most cases be accomplished.
PS : We have just returned from our 5th consecutive September vacation at the Grecotel.
