I always try to write reviews which help prospective holidaymakers as the last thing I want to hear is moans about things beyond the resorts control. As we arrived in the last week of the season we expected it to be quite. We didn't expect it to be so quiet. The up side of this was that we were able to eat in all of the restaurants that were rated as excellent on this site without having to book. Our room was very spacious with a pool view which was lovely. It's the first time we have been B&B as in the past we have done self catering or all inclusive. I thought we would have a kitchen area but we just had a fridge. Not a problem to us but it may be for families in the high season. The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided. We couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room or the rest of the place. The pool area was spotless and the pool although cool was clean. There were more than enough sunbeds for the people staying and the ones which had been stacked away weren't needed. The breakfast choice was extensive. We always like to eat local produce so the Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts was delicious. Cereals could wait until we got back home. There was also a vast assortment of cheeses, meats and fruit, as well as the british fry up. The staff were friendly and although we had it pointed out by some of our fellow guests that the staff chose the football matches they wanted to watch, we prefered to watch the matches at the Angel bar across the road which had much better TV screens and cheaper drinks. Everything was closing down for the season but everywhere we went was friendly. We hired a car from the airport which was the best thing we did as we drove all around the island in our weeks stay. The only thing which I haven't read in the other reviews is the amount of cats in the area. If you like cats you will be delighted, if you don't beware. Great resort we will be going back again.
