Just got back from 4 days at the resort and felt the need to post a review here after our experience. I want to start by saying we enjoyed our stay, but I feel like the reviews on here are a bit overblown and there are negatives that do need to be pointed out (again we enjoyed our vacation, but the point of reviews is to make people aware of what to expect. So with that, i'll start with the negatives.
The Food: To be blunt, the food wasn't very good. The Paella they made on the beach one day was very good, but the restaurants were subpar. I would say Thallasa was the only place where the food was not disappointing.
The Room: Room was big and the balcony was always great. Just a heads up though, it does smell a bit mildewy. Probably nothing they can do about it, just be prepared.
Beach/pools: The beach and infinity were great, the grounds as a whole at the resort were really really nice, along with the staff.
Overall, we had a great time (especially for the price) but the place does have downsides to be aware of - I would say that if food is a big thing for you, this may not be the spot.
Hope this was helpful.
