We went with no idea what to expect; we just wanted sun and heat after such a lousy summer. We were absolutely bowled over. This hotel has a lovely location, well kept gardens, spotlessly clean large rooms with good sized private balconies, excellent food and friendly helpful staff. Who cares whether it is officially Deluxe, 5 star or 4 star. We loved it. It never felt crowded, never a struggle to get a sun bed and the terracing of the sunbathing areas leading down to the sea worked so well. It's 2.5Km from Agios Nikolaos but not an unpleasant walk. We will definitely go again.
