We stayed here 13th - 20th June and have nothing but praise for the hotel and staff. Our room was spotlessly clean as were the fridge, kettle, toaster, dishes etc. The bathroom was lovely with a really good shower and the towels were changed every day. We decided to eat evening meal at the hotel on our first night and the quality was so good we ate there twice more. It is exceptional value at 12 euros for a five course meal. We would have been happy to eat there every night but we wanted to sample some of the local eateries while we were there. The bar at the hotel is also really good and we were well looked after by our compatriots Steve in the bar and Jackie in the restaurant. The pool is good. Just the right temperature to cool you off and the sunbeds were really comfortable,offering plenty of shade which we welcomed in the 35 degree heat! It's only a short walk down to the main resort and there's plenty on offer for eating and drinking. Magdalena's is good for a fun quiz and karaoke and we found a really good restaurant a little off the beaten track (about 15 minute walk from Mavrikos) called Dionistos Grill where I had the best Beef Stifado, two nights running. Really good value food and a very popular restaurant. You get free wine with your meal too. Opposite there is a little café bar called the Ocean Bar where they do lovely cocktails at 2 for 6 euros. Sweet Revenge is a great place too. They do a lovely breakfast and a really good cup of tea!
We paid 7 euros a day for air conditioning in the hotel for the last 4 nights as it got so warm and it would be nice if that were included in the price. However, that's a minor thing. Overall we loved the hotel and its location and had a wonderful week there. We'll definitely go back.
