Firstly I would like to mention that the reservation staff were fantastic! I had originally booked my holiday through Lowcost holidays which recently went into administration, and found out that my accommodation had NOT been paid by the company. On contacting the hotel, this was confirmed and they were really sympathetic and reassuring. Athina Kagiaftaki was the person who I...

We have been 9 nights in a villa with private pool. From the first until the last day everything was perfect. We booked halfboard, thanks to the chefs who prepare the good food.

I'm currently staying at this lovely complex and sat by the pool enjoying my last full day! The Villa is lovely (301) and is exceptionally clean, the maid service has been excellent and cannot be faulted.
