Stayed here for 10 days last September, slight confusion over the room we'd booked but that was quickly sorted out and our suite was perfect with a stunning view. The food was delicious, especially the sushi at the beach restaurant. We tried the buffet dinner once but as a pescatarian I found the choice limited, a lot of meat. The...

These 10 days will be one of best holiday memories ever. The service was excellent, the food delicious and we could choose between different restaurants. The beach was beautiful. Real luxery, but still nice and cosy. The Spa offered very good treatments. I really want to visit this hotel again.

We stayed here last August and it was truly the holiday of our dreams. An idyllic resort, close enough to town but private enough to feel secluded. Luxury and attention to detail at every level. We stayed in a villa which was gorgeous - beautiful uninterrupted views across the bay. Fantastic service from everyone from the super friendly spa staff...

A small nice hotel just outside Agios Nikolaus which has seen better days. You could feel that the hotel has been affected by the economical crisis. The rates and restaurant prices were too high for what they offered and left a sour taste. The rooms were tiny as was the bathrooms again not what you would expect at that level...
