David, Calgary
Disliked: Staff & service
The property is dated but relatively well maintained. The problem with this place is that one can get breakfast, or 3 meal plan but apparently there is an exclusive plan as well. What does this mean? It means that while you can preety much have any drink at breakfast (water (sparkling), any juice, coffee, hot chocolate etc) if you sign of for the 3 meal plan any form of drink for lunch or supper is charged to your room! Utterry ridlcuous and a scam. It is in fact against the law ot deny anyone a glass of water if they ask for one at any restaurant in Canada, but apparently not so in Greece. Furthermore, one is hounded by staff for our room number at every meal and then the pressure to purchase a drink. They even go so far as to put boards around the water, juice, coffee that they setup for breakfast so that you can't access those. We fell into this trap for teh frist meal and were gobsmacked y the fact that water is deemed to lie outside of the three meal subscription. And watch your bill! we were charged for drinks we did not take. I refused to pay, I asked the duty manager to show me the chits bearing my signature confirming that I had taken a drink (that the servers hounded one for) and of course he could not. Slimy behaviour, some of the servers are dishonest. I discussed this with numerous other customers and many intended to complain. Don;t get me wrong, if I wanted a beer or a glass of wine, I would expect to pay; water, juice, coffee on a 3 meal plan? No!

Fantastic holiday destination, friendly staff, nice welcoming, and great food. As a beach resort, rooms come with ants/insects included, require spraying all the time.

Not sure who rated it 5'star but from my experience this hotel falls way short of 5 star, more 3 heading towards 4.

Great Location
Great hotel, location, food, service, staff and facilities. My only real criticism is the rooms, restaurants and bars are getting a little tired and could do with a refurbishment sometime soon. Don't get me wrong, it's still a really good resort, it's just that I Didn't expect it to be quite so tired looking compared to the website photos and expected a little better for the price I paid; I'd still highly recommend the resort though

An excellent hotel
We went as a family of three and we loved the hotel. The complex was beautifully laid out and the gardens were all very well maintained. The hotel is on a slope so almost every view has a seaview. Our room had a rustic charm but was cleaned daily and well maintained. We had a room with it's own private pool and a stones throw away from the beach. The pools are all salt water and are very clean. They have their own prviate beach which was very convenient.The staff could not be faulted and were very friendly and always happy to help with a sense of urgency. The food in the evenings was delicious and varied so expect your waistline to be affected. We never go back to the same hotel twice but in this case this would be the exception. I would highly recommend this hotel to both families and couples.
