We arrived late on Saturday 15.09.2012 and were shown to our room which was of a good size with two single beds. It was not until the morning when I opened the curtains and saw the amazing view overlooking Kastri Island and Kamari Bay that I realised what a great room this was. There is a small kitchenette with kettle, 2 ring stove and sink. The bathroom is fully tiled with toilet, shower and sink, the floor of the bathroom does get wet when using the shower so we put the shower mat outside the bathroom door and it stayed dry.
We had booked half board so made our way down the restaurant to look what was on offer. Toast, cereal and yoghurt and honey were included with other options available at an extra cost. The evening meal options for the day are on a board on the wall and for those on half board included 2 starters, 3 mains (2 Greek and 1 English) and 2 puddings. There were other options available again at an extra cost. We ate in the restaurant every night except one and not once were we disappointed or left hungry. The lunch menu had sandwiches, salads and pizza and Jodie still talks about the tuna salad.
The pool area has the great same views as the rooms and was immaculate (some mornings I had watched the cleaners go about their work even removing the cushions from the sun loungers and cleaning the frames). Some days we had the whole pool area to ourselves even though the hotel was nearly full. There is a free bus that takes into the resort, I used to walk down in the afternoon and catch the six o’clock bus back up. The bus may have seen better days but it is a lot quicker than me up the hill.
The hotel is run by an absolutely wonderful family who will do anything to make your holiday special. Janet is probably the nicest person I have ever met, always welcomes you with the biggest smile. She seems to be on duty from seven in the morning until ten at night and has so much energy it is amazing. On one day I mentioned that we were going down to the resort to hire a car for a couple of days and she offered to sort it out for me. A car was duly delivered to the hotel within an hour. Janet even sat with us that evening and showed us all the places to visit on the map. Panos and Babis are the two men that look after the cooking and run the complimentary bus to the resort. I was up early one morning and Panos took me to his farm where he keeps pigs, chickens and goats. Maria who looks after the bar in the afternoon, Janet and Panos’s daughter Sevi who helps in the evening is very friendly as is Louise.
Even if I had paid twice the amount for my holiday I would have been very happy, we try to go to different places every holiday but we have both decided that this hotel is going to be the exception and cannot wait to get back.
