Stay away! This is no five star resort. Valuables stolen right out of our room and hotel management doesn't care. Cleaning lady stole multiple items, all the hotel can say is you have no proof. Didn't realize I need to put things like perfune in the safe as well. Will never stay at Grecotel again. Not to mention rooms were old, AC unit was noisy, gym is tiny and food is mediocre. There are much better options as I've stayed in many beautiful resorts in Greece.

It is a really nice hotel and we loved staying there. As mentioned to the hotel staff, the biggest downside is that smoking is allowed in the main food area and you can need tell when someone will sit down at the table next to you and light a cigarette up. It is a real shame as it happens everywhere, next to children, pregnant women etc. Otherwise it’s a great hotel, the beach, staff and food was all amazing!

My partner and I stayed here for a few days in May 2022. Overall we really enjoyed the stay, were well fed, cared for by the staff and went home relaxed and refreshed. The resort is really pleasant to stay in. I loved the architecture, water features and the layout is easy to navigate. We enjoyed playing tennis, archery, a couple's massage and watching the sunset every evening. There is plenty to do here if you are a bit restless but ultimately it is a place designed to chill. I think we got lucky with our luxury sea view room, as it was at the end of the row and was much bigger and better than the pictures. There are several restaurants onsite, we only tried the buffet and an Asian place. The other restaurants require booking in advance, so we didn't get to try everywhere. We needed gluten free food and the staff were excellent in providing information on what could be eaten. We were offered gluten free pancakes in the morning, and even the Asian restaurant was able to make a couple of dishes gluten free which is rare. One of the positive highlights was that it was my partner's birthday during the stay. Without hinting or prompting the staff at all, they brought us a surprise gluten free birthday cake at the end of our meal (they must have recognized the birthday from the "Date of Birth" info during check in) which I thought was exceptional service. I wish I could have taken credit for organizing it but the staff really outdid themselves!
