We spent 2 nights here on a package tour so can't really comment on "value for money" other than the cost of food (reasonable and good), laundry (cheap) and booze (well you expect to pay for a good wine wherever you are). Very kid-friendly, popular with divers, and a pool (with a bar!), it seems like a great place for...

This is a great beach location on an almost empty beach:-) After the staff gets to know you a little, they are very friendly, helpful and enjoy chatting with you.

Overall experience was good, great place if you love beaches. Friendly staff, rooms are nice and clean. Food is good as well but not much of a variety in the buffet. View of the beach is so great and good place to spend the evening.

This was a great bolt hole to relax and recover. Great chef, relaxing pool and an amazing swim with friendly (!) sharks on Pigion Island. But the best thing about the hotel was the amazing service - everyone from front of desk to the beach staff were great. Thank you.
