My Husband and I have just returned from a blissful week at the Gelina! We at 2am to a very friendly Reception Manager who checked us in, explained all the facilities and had us and our luggage carted to our lovely room, we were also given a nice supper and large choice of drinks before we went to bed! Our apartment was central to everything which was great, a good size, very clean and comfortable. We slept in the next morning until after 11 so missed breakfast but went to the beach bar (pirates) where there was soup and sandwiches already available. Plenty of sunbeds on the gorgeous beach, breathtaking view, self service bar and super friendly bar staff. Lunch is a large variety of delicious choices, we were a little put off at first because the lunch restaurant seems to attract wasps! There were lots of them but we soon discovered if you ignored them they didn't bother you! Lots of water sports available, things to hire and also lessons available! Water park was good fun. Main pool had music playing, relax pool was quiet and quite secluded...fab! Also another pool quite central, all with a bar, all really clean. Evening meal...amazing!! So much choice, absolutely gorgeous food, salads fruit, deserts...plenty of different choices for all tastes! Evening entertainment varied, beach bar party's and performers in the outdoor theatre. There was quite a lot of mosquitoes in the evening, we took vitamin b before our holiday and my husband used a spray so if you get bitten (I don't!) Be prepared! Acharavi is a short walk from the hotel with nice shops and bars/restaurants. We went to Harrys bar which was great and central bar which had a fab atmosphere and a fantastic live singer (Darren May), really lovely people in the shops in particular in the Salvanos supermarket the owner, Vangillis, was such a nice chap!
We had read other reviews before we set off and we were a little apprehensive about our stay at the Gelina but honestly I don't understand how anyone could complain, we had a fantastic time, we are looking into another visit next year with our children (just the two of us this time) and our parents as it is a place for couples, families or groups alike!
My only issue would be pay a bit extra and get a private transfer or taxi as the coach tranfer took nearly 2 hrs :(
