We stayed in a two-room suite with private pool, and boy that was sweet! Very nice, modern and clean rooms, and having your own private pool is just the best way to relax. We traveled with an infant, so it further gave us the possibility for junior to get a nap when needed. The buffet restaurant is really nice for... More

Everything they promise, only issue was that it was a little far from the main tourist beach. Private beach was excellent ! Good food, very clean rooms. Great selection of spa treatments and friendly, helpful staff.

We had a perfect one week vacation, almost nothing to complain about. We had a very specious room, even though we booked a double room we got upgraded to a family room, which was with very nice room with a view and more space for our little girl. We had holiday inclusive, which included 5 dinners and lunches, the food... More

Five star hotel when in reality it's a none star hotel because of their staff. I have no idea where to start, the most unprofessional staff i have ever seen. Let me give you an example: Going down to their restaurant to get a pizza, they tell you, it's closed for the next hour but we could order 5 pizzas... More

What a fabulous hotel. The staff are the best of any hotel we have stayed in . Rooms and all public areas are spotless. Socratis and Iannis (great football fans) in the restaurant are a credit. Antonis at the front desk is so courteous and helpful. The food has a great choice every meal. Two negative points :- Sunbeds need... More

Usual 5* luxury. Clean and tidy, gardens are well looked after and watered. Pool areas are clean and tidy, drinks service is swift. The food is simply amazing, more choice than I have ever seen at a Buffett and the quality is exceptional. Great service, good staff. Worth every penny. I would however recommend trying to book a drinks included... More

The architect deserves congratulations. The hotel is visually stunning. Modern clean lines incorporate beautiful sculptures at every turn. Rooms large, comfortably furnished and spotless. Food varied and constantly replenished. Staff excellent. This is a five star hotel but the rating I feel, is earned largely for facilities provided for families with children. As a couple, however, little touches we have... More

Very Friendly staff, Great food but we did find after a week that the main buffet restaurant started to get repetitive. Luckily there are 2 a la carte restaurants, both of which are excellent. I also ate lunch frequently at the pool bar, which to be honest was better than in the main restaurant, but that that's my preference. They... More
