Too narrow for 3 children . Evening entertainment was a bit boring, the soft drinks are too expensive. But overall very nice and for children a paradise, since the child services on the children is received, - all day, until late in the evening, including table at lunch (for free!). Super friendly staff, which also at the end of the season still gladly works. , …  read hotel review

The hotel was relaxing and the food was briliant. I have a daughter with a food allergy and she can not eat gluten. It was easy to ask for, and every dinner at the bufet the chef was showing her what she could eat. It was a short way the the beach and the sunbeds were free of charge and it was enough to all of the guests no mather what time we got there. The staff at the hotel were very helpful. We have been there three times now and are very happy with it. read hotel review

One of the two best hotels we have ever stayed in.

It's impossible to find fault with this wonderful multi-cultural, multi-age group hotel. A choice of between 3 and six restaurants (more open in high season), with a vast selection of food choices. Lovely gardens and good sized, spotlessly clean rooms. We had a superior pool view bungalow with all the extras one would expect from a 5 star hotel. This was our second visit and will certainly not be our last. When you are leaving you are presented with a half-litre cannister of their own wonderful Olive Oil, so be sure to check out before locking your cases! Treat yourselves ... - you will not regret it! read hotel review

    Three excellent restaurants - more in high season. Large variety of foods including, thankfully, some traditional Greek choices, not always available in large hotels.

    Service in this hotel is second to none. All of the extremely friendly staff seem to be multi-lingual and nothing is too much trouble. We had a couple of very minor problems which were dealt with and put right immediately. The Guest Relations Manager dealt with sorting our boarding passes and airport transfers.

  • Room
    5.0

    Good sized room with tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, safe, telephone, air-conditioning, large flat screen TV. Spotlessly clean with fresh linen and towels, each day. Robes and slippers. Aminibar can be requested.

  • Location

    Wonderful location with a Blue Flag beach and a fabulous mountain backdrop. About one mile from the town of Georgiopolis which can be reached by a walk along the beautiful beach or a quiet supply road off the main highway.

  • Sport & Leisure
    6.0

    We didn't take advantage of the many leisure activities due to some minor disabilities but thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment for the children which is held between 8.00 and 9.00pm. The many swimming pools are lovely with plenty of sunbeds and towels available.

This was a brilliant holiday, with hotel facilities that enhanced the week. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were spotless and the food was superb. The hotel is very close to the beach (no more than two minutes walk) and all facilities were provided. The hotel has very easy access to public transport with regular buses to all major towns. All excursions can be arranged through the hotel. The grounds are well maintained and all outdoor pools are spotless. We are looking forward to returning again next year. read hotel review
