What can i say other than that this was the perfect place to spend our long awaited honeymoon. We got married in Spetember last year but decided to wait for our honeymoon.
The first week we were joined by two friends and had a lovely time realaxing round the pool on the first week and sampling the nightlife in laganas. We also went to a foam party which are starting to be held Most fridays at zeros club.
The four of us also took a trip to see the turtles on the yellow submarine. we took the 2hour tour at 3pm 15euro each and had a lovely swim in the blue waters of turtle island. you only get this on the 2 hour tour. we also visited the water park which is amazing and even better for those with children. In the second week me and my husband went on the shipwreck blue caves tour which is great it is four hours and you get an hour at the shipwreck and get to swim near the blue caves also. If we had done it again we would have gone on a boat that could fit in the caves as they looked so beautiful.
In the second week we stayed around kalamaki and sampled the foods. I can honestly say i did not have a bad meal and neither did my husband. We visited Yamas, Mermaids, Heavens Kitchen, Olive Tree, Artemis and a good few others as well as eating at the hotel. Our favourite place to drink at night was the drunk corner in kalamaki. In laganas was Mad Murphys Irish bar and nightclub Zeros, the foam party was definately worth the 5euro we paid to get in. The staff at drunk corner are lovely and they have a range of enlish TV and Sports on throughout the day. There is an extensive list of cocktails to choose from andthey are served with a smile.
The venus hotel is definately a little piece of heaven on earth. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they are always happy and welcoming. The cocktails that spiros makes are delicious aswell my favourite was the hawaiian punch mmmm yummy!!!! Breakfast was a continental style but lots of choice. I loved the eggs (had them every morning).
The poolside snackbar is very reasonably priced and we enjoyed having the gyros (greek sausage 1 is lovely).
We also went to play the mini golf which is excellent but we went at the wrong time of day. Either go 1st thing in the morning or after 8pm as it gets very hot. The owner is lovely. When booking excursions Pat is the woman too see she is across the kalamaki main road next to oasis bar. She will tell u all about the tours in frank honesty so you know what you are getting. We made the mistake of booking across the road for the water park and nothing went to timings.
If i could sum up the venus in two words it would be Absolutely Outstanding.
I think there is definately a possibilty of us returning in the future as we had such a wonderful time with wonderful people. If i could say 1 thing on your return to the rainy uk make sure youn get to the airport early as queues get very large. But it is definately not worth missing out on this wonderful island and hotel for.
Thankyou So Much Nick and all your staff
especially Barbara for your wonderful hospitality!
Hope to return soon
