Excellent hotel and great value for money for a really good 4 star hotel.
The rooms were very big and well appointed. The views all round were stunning. The gardens and pool area were pretty - you would want to sit out here.
The staff were great - friendly and spoke excellent English.
The public spaces within the hotel were well designed, you wanted to sit and order a drink and enjoy the atmosphere or view everywhere!
When we were here the only male staff were behind the reception desk and there were women working here too. It was women who helped us with our bags and worked behind the bar and waited on the tables in the restaurant. And they were so much more friendly than their male counterparts from my experience in other 4 & 5* hotels. It made for a different and friendly atmosphere. This may be more appreciated by women travelling alone.
The food in the restaurant was excellent quality. I am a vegan and it was nice to find a big and interesting range of vegetable dishes on the menu to choose from.
Furthermore, as we ate here 3 nights the staff remembered us and bought out extra special treats for us to try which just enhanced our Greek Experience.
If you are not on a tight budget then I highly recommend eating here. Sorry I can't remember prices but it was not extremely expensive and certainly cheaper than eating out in Athens.
Views from the restaurant were also great.
Breakfast includes fresh fruitsalad and a large selection of home-made jams.
We stayed off peak mid week in April, we had booked for 2 nights but decided to stay an extra night it was so nice here and I would definitely book to stay here again. I do hope I will travel to this part of the world again.
The pool is not heated but does have the sun on it all day so seemed slightly warmer than the pool at the hotel in Athens a few days earlier. The pool was deep so non-swimmers would have to stay by or on the steps.
I have seem a few negative comments but from my experience they are writing about a different hotel!
