This resort was stunning it had everything we needed. The beach was beautiful and clean, the breakfast was lovely for me. It was a nice and quiet place to be. I have to say the best thing for me was the staff. They had everything down to a t. When I arrived and walked into my room they had soy milk waiting for me which was perfect as I am intolerant! They knew what I liked to drink in the morning, if we asked for something it would be there in a flash! They were always so so helpful. The is not a heck of a lot to do in the surrounding area however it is a short car ride to the nearest town and also the zoomarine. Disappointments? my husband had to keep cleaning up ants that appeared in our room each morning? They were around my bed stand and we had no food in the room even when we put our two alcohol bottles outside they were crawling in the room everywhere like a horror movie. My husband bought some vinegar and used soap and water and didn’t sleep most of the time paranoid about the ants. We spoke to reception and the lady said she’s not sure that they’ll let us change room which was a shocker for me. Everything was extortionate in pricing. We had to travel out to get snacks and drinks, a can of Coke on the resort was 6 euros!!! The heated pool was not heated, you pay so much but you do not get free stuff in the minibar, the only free thing in the spa is the sauna and steam. Overall amazing place but there’s room for improvement

The resort was professionally run. All the staff were welcoming and helpful. The resort's beautiful gardens are amazing and the private beach is just a stones throws away. The resort had a calming feel about it, where you can just feel relaxed and at peace. It was just a lovely place to stay. It was like being in paradise. Thank you to all the staff at Vilalara Thalassa Resort.
