Just returned from 10 days here and found it very relaxing. Rooms spotlessly clean, pool area nicely set out (be careful about sunbeds though, some comfortable some not!) owners and staff absolutely brilliant (well done Kristina, Colleta and Helen!). Very peaceful area and only a short walk to 'centre' of Kelios and tavernas/restaurants. Met good company on holiday. Thoroughly enjoyable...

We have just come back from The Magnolia Resort and everything about this place is wonderful. The staff are obliging, friendly and very helpful. The owner and her family work tirelessly to make sure you are happy and comfortable and all your needs are met. This is a quiet peaceful place but within walking distance of the pebble beach, where...

This hotel is a very good standard for Greece as not sure if its in line with other European resorts 4 stars but for Greece this is good. From arrival, 10 nights b&b to departure, only one thing to complain about and that was the sun beds which are uncomfortable due to a supporting bar that fits not so nicely...

Stayed here last May for a week with my mum as we just wanted a relaxing holiday. Hotel is gorgeous from the outside and the rooms are lovely inside however It doesn't quite compare to other 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Very quiet and relaxing around the pool although sometimes a little too quiet. Breakfast was fine but...

Let me state, straight away, that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with this hotel, it is clean and comfortable and the staff, on the whole, are pleasant and accommodating. It is however suffering from delusions of grandeur. I know ratings differ from country to country, but in no way does it qualify for four stars. As for being a resort,...
