“great pool and service, rooms a bit dated.”
Reviewed August 12, 2009

We stayed here for 3 nights The rooms are a bit dated in style but we spent most of our time at the pool or on our balcony watching the sun go down. The location is great for a ferry trip to Antiparos - they run until about 1.30am so you can go for a lateish night then hop back on the ferry back to the hotel. Service was great and the breakfast buffet was a good. the air conditioning in our room was very efficient.

The hotel and the hospitality is great but the only that I want to say is that the rooms are very old-fasioned and the need more vendilation.

We stayed at the Holiday Sun Hotel, Paros for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room had a magnificent view of the water, was immaculate and was extremely good value for money. I think it cost us around $AU160 per night including breakfast.

The staff were always friendly, the service in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was very very attentive, with one particular waitress possibly being the most courteous person we encountered on our trip. The food in the restaurant was absolutely delicious. When the Resort is full they put on a Buffet Dinner, otherwise it dinner is a set 3-4 course dinner. The only advice I can give is pack a snorkel and go to breakfast early if there is a large tour group in!

The location of the Resort (not really a hotel) is a little out of the action, but right on the water which is crystal clear and teaming with marine life. This suited us as we were there solely to kite surf which we did, every day. The two main kite surfing schools were within a 15 minute walk and some days were we lucky to catch a lift with the instructors. The Resort is also a close walk to the ferry for Antiparos (which is a must see if heading to Paros and for 1 euro each way per person it's a bargain) and a corner store type shop. Overall I cannot wait to go back but next time will take advantage of full rather than half board because after kite surfing all day the last thing we wanted to do was go in search of restaurants.

This hotel has a great location, the pool area is very nice but the drinks are over priced. The room was not up to the standard of A class which is what the hotel advertises itself as. The bathroom had very little ventillation and the sheets were changed every three days..YUK. Punda is an area known for its winds which proved correct the whole time we were there..so you do end up with closed windows in a sea view room. The breakfast was quite good but they do not let you outside to eat on the tables so after the week we felt like we spent more time inside than out. Anyway overall we were happy.
