My husband and I have just returned from a week at this stunningly beautiful hotel. As you walk into the foyer the sparkling white buildings and glorious blue pools, sea and sky dazzle the senses. This hotel screams 5 star from the initial greeting by smart, attentive staff, to the excellent service in all areas, bars, dining and pool side....

My wife and I came to this hotel for our honeymoon in October 2016 and we are so glad we did. The hotel is beautiful from the moment we walked into the lobby we were impressed. The staff at the hotel knew that it was our honeymoon and made a big fuss of us. When we were taken to our...

Nice Holiday, but definitly not 5 stars. We had a nice holiday, overall the Food was good, the rooms clean and the staff very friendly. But compared to other 5 star Hotels, there were a lot of points dissapointing. We had 2 different rooms, superior double with sea view and a Luxe Yali Sharing pool Suite. Both were not fully...

We visited the white palace for a chill out holiday and we got that. The weather was perfect, the hotel spotlessly clean, the staff are fantastic and so helpful. The food is amazing and we ate in the buffet restaurant, the Italian and the Greek, although the Greek doesn't serve Greek food it was a formal quiet restaurant, which was...

We arrived quite late in the evening, several of the other coach passengers started commenting on how luxurious it looked just from their initial first glance. Our bags were collected from the coach by the hotel porters & the staff were still very eager to please. We had paid an apartment that they class as a bungalow (bottom floor of...

I was there mid october with a big group, for shootings and video recordings. My room was 304, let's say a villa with spacious livingroom, dressing, big bathroom, terrace and swimming pool. Ideal space so the hairdressers and make up artist could work in my room. Every morning a delicious breakfast in the room for our crew and the girls....

We arrived at the end of the season without realising the consequences. After paying almost £4000 for our family all inclusive holiday, the hotel was showing signs of closing. The food was being recycled, wine had run out and there seemed to be nothing but banana ice cream left for children (which is a huge no no). The water sport...

Firstly, some people have complained about the service they received when they checked in, however, in our case we arrived at about 1 am, to be met with hot towels and a drink. We were given the registration form, but told to fill it in later and drop back with them after breakfast. On arriving in our room we were...
