Beautiful location for a value for money break
Posted Oct 11, 2015
This hotel is a strange mixture of a fabulous cliff top location, comfortable rooms, slightly dated bathrooms, large pools and well appointed bars with wonderful sea views....and then there are the 'animateurs' a group of enthusiastic, relentlessly cheerful young people whose sole purpose is to entertain you with dancing, singing, games and evening shows. I have every admiration for people who can do this without flagging, always wearing a cheery smile and clearly lots of the guests, mostly French, Spanish and Russians loved them but it was, for us, an acquired taste! Good fun in small doses and you could always escape them by walking for a few minutes to one of a couple of pretty little coves to the left and right of the hotel.
The catering (we went half board) was ok and seemed to improve as the week went on and the number of guests declined. The Tavernas at one of the coves were great and Yamas bar and restaurant above Psoulamasos (?) beach was calm and my idea of taverna chic.
This is the only hotel where I've stayed which has its' own on site chapel with wall paintings, possibly used for wedding blessings? As it is very tiny only room for the happy couple and their very close friends!
The steep nature of the location may make getting around difficult for those with mobility problems.
Overall we had a lovely relaxing time and although it was early October the weather was great plus we saw a school of dolphins swimming pass the hotel early on morning. Fab!
