This was our ninth visit to Katelios over the past 20 years but our first stay at Utopia. We looked in at this hotel, last year, and decided we would like to stay in the future. We booked direct as the main tour operator is now Polish as a result of a "dispute" the hotel owners had with Thomsons last year. We found the Polish people very pleasant and well behaved and many tried to communicate with us in broken English.
The hotel itself was a great experience! High standard of cleanliness throughout; good-sized bedrooms with either a mountain or sea view; choice of swimming pools and plenty of sunbeds and free wifi.
This is a family run hotel and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Special mention to Peggy (the manager), her sister Argiro (Mrs Martin!!) and Afroditi (the chef) who provided us with some of the best food we have eaten on holidays abroad!!
We did not use the Spa but the facilities are of a very high standard and managed by an English lady called Mary.
One of our initial reasons for booking this hotel was the proximity to the beach and local tavernas as we now have some mobility issues. The hotel now has a pathway to the beach thus avoiding the need to use the road.
Health permitting - we will return! Thank you Utopia for a memorable holiday!!
