We stayed at the Aressana for 8 nights and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is absolutely beautiful , very classy, clean and well decorated. We were upgraded on arrival (a nice surprise!) to an upper floor room which we found to be extremely comfortable and a good size. The bed was huge and very lovely to sleep on and the aircon worked very well. The bathroom was a little on the small side but still very nice, fresh towels were delivered daily and our rooms were cleaned every day on request. In the evening a maid would bring us two little cakes and offer night service. We also had a balcony with two chairs and a table which was lovely to sit out on.
The pool was perhaps slightly smaller than expected but it was a luxury that many other of the hotels in the area could not offer and we were usually the only two in there. The water was cold but very refreshing and the seating around the pool was incredible.
The staff were always more than happy to help you out- we got sun-burnt quite badly one day and we were given a 'local remedy' of greek yoghurt which worked wonders! The staff seemed to take a personal interest in all of its guests and made for a truly friendly atmosphere.
We ate in several nights and found the food to be not only delicious but very competitively priced, and the staff were happy to change aspects of the dishes or add ingredients.
We took advantage of the spa facilities during our stay and received excellent service. The hotbeds and Jacuzzi can be used for a very reasonable price and the massages we had were excellent.
Breakfast, as we were warned was very Greek and is perhaps not to everyone's taste. There was a wide variety of choice and always something we enjoyed- the honey especially was amazing. We were always offered coffee/tea each morning and the juices were greatly enjoyed.
Overall - an unforgettable stay.
