We arrived at the hotel in the very early hours and got a great welcome from the man on the reception along with some sandwiches and snacks.
We were weary of getting a room far away from the hotel as was written on other reviews and were placed in 8015, a little bungelow just up the hill. It was a little bit of a steep hill but nothing we couldn't handle although I wouldn't have liked to do it in heels. There was other accommodation further away so we were happy enough and the bungelow was really spacious! Unfortunately we didn't get a proper sea view which would have been nice but we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. The cleaner was lovely and friendly and came daily, the only gripe would have been to change the bath mat more often as it did smell quite damp after a couple of days.
The actual hotel was nice, great balcony overlooking the cove and a nice rooftop bar with lovely seating etc. All the staff are really friendly especially Thanos on reception, he would go out of his way to help!
The food was perfectly okay as in I could find something to eat every day but I wasn't bowled over with it. My boyfriend was very happy with the BBQ's food every day but he's happy with any form of meat and potatoes!! The desserts were great though, it's worth popping down just for those!
The pool was great and plenty of sunbeds. The beach again lovely, a really nice cove, not too busy etc. The one major problem I had on this holiday was the wasps! Being terrified of wasps I really thought this would ruin my holiday but I did eventually manage to ignore them but the boyfriend got stung on the last day.
Agios Gordios is a great little resort, we were there as the season had slowed down but there's still plenty of little restaurants and a couple of nice bars. We ate at Seabreeze along the beach which was lovely, great service. An absolutely cracking little bar is Robin's Nest! An absolute must do, really cute cave like little bar with glitter enamelled tables, a cute pooch and uber friendly bar owner- Robin. She'll keep you laughing away until the early hours!
All in all a great place to visit, we had a perfectly chilled week in a relaxed resort that wasn't too quiet but thankfully none of the rowdiness!
