We stayed from April 15, 2010 until April 22, 2010, and only have the strongest recommendations for this hotel. Everything was splendid. The staff is very friendly. Almost every day that we ate in the restaurant we had something for free - it could be ouzos, some kind of drinks, fruit or dessert. Actually, we had so many ouzos "on the house" that we could practically swim in them :-) The only small disadvantage was that the check-in was very slow - we had to queue for at least an hour before we had access to our room.
The room itself was light and airy, with a balcony that was so large it extended in two points of the compass. The cleaning lady comes in every day except Sundays and does an excellent job.
Another thing that has to be mentioned is the pool bar. What fantastic range! There were more than 100 different drinks and a wide range of different liqueurs, among them vanilla, apple, orange, mandarin, cherry, chocolate, and strawberry. Of course, they serve wine and beer as well.
The restaurant has a menu that is rather adapted to tourists - you don't find so many authentic Greek dishes here, apart from moussaka, tzatziki, souvlaki and the traditional Greek salad with Feta cheese and olives. More common are hamburgers, schnitzels, pizza, pasta and pancakes. But don't get me wrong - there is absolutely nothing wrong with the food, and if you wish to eat elsewhere, a wide range of other restaurants is only ten to fifteen minutes walk away.
