When you read the reviews of this hotel you get the impression that it is paradise and by Greek standards it is. It's a lovely hotel, which is spotless and the service from the waiters, chefs, maids and reception staff is second to none. The quality of the food is also excellent. As it was our honeymoon, we were upgraded to a grand suite for 4 nights with its own pool and then moved to a bungalow with its own plunge pool for the rest of our holiday, all for no extra charge. Very nice touch by the management so thank you. Having no kids screaming around the place also made the place relaxed and gave it a touch of poshness, if I dare say it. Not a lot to do in the hotel at night other than to sit and drink a few cocktails and chat to other guests, an occasional guest singer/piano player which was nice, but then there are also some nearby tavernas etc to go and entertain yourself at.
Outside of the hotel is okay but not the best Greek experience in my opinion. Going left or right to the resort took you to the tavernas and beaches, but some areas had a touch of holiday park feel in places, eg: dodgem rides and stalls in Skala Potamia. Also a fenced off camp site about 400yds away never impacted on our holiday experience but may put some off. It was full of Romanians and Bulgarians when we were there, followed by a bikers weekend festival at the end of our stay, which to be fair was the first time they had one of those on the island, but best be aware if it is to be repeated in the future..
The island itself is lovely and green and fairly low key. Didn't seem to have the mad buzz about it like some other Greek islands! We hired a car for a few days to get around and stopped off at some remote beaches to have a swim etc. We also caught the local bus to the island's capital to do a bit of shopping and see some mountain villages as it passed through etc (2 euros each way...bargain). Singing with the local school kids on the bus was fun! The trips on offer were good fun too and gave you a chance to experience the island also, eg; Zeus boat trip and the Jeep safari.
I have travelled around Greece a lot and I would say that if you want luxury, peace, quiet, excellent service and cuisine, then this hotel is hard to beat. Enjoy.
