Great quality for not a big price. People who complain, simply must have so high expectations that can't be fulfilled for that kind of money. Rooms were clean, food was tasty and I was kindly surprised of quite nice variety of meals. Staff is really polite, kind - they'll help you with anything you want. Bartenders put much alcohol in drinks - sometimes maybe only too much ice - but still, when it's hot, it's not bad at all. The biggest disadvantage is the small pool - but as it's something that I was aware of, I won't complain about that. Also, beach next to hotel is not that great - it's small and more "brown" than "golden" - but I don't know if it's hotel's fault, so I'm leaving it just as a note. Of course, some places could have been renovated - especially when there was a rainy day and there were some leaks in restaurant or in corridors - it shouldn't happen, but it doesn't affect my opinion as whole experience was great and I can certainly recommend staying at this hotel.

This hotel has both good points and bad points Good points Foyer is spacious and clean Sanitisers on every floor due to Covid Bad points Water is not included in all inclusive package Rooms are tiny Shower is so small you can’t bend to clean your feet Balcony is so small you can’t both sit out as it has a massive air con unit out there too Pool is very small and only 20 sun beds Grassed area is also to small again only 20 sun beds Food well think a new chef is needed it was terrible Maid service we didn’t have a change of towels at all Towels were old and torn Sheets had holes in them Bins were not emptied for 2/3 days (now remember you can’t put loo roll down the toilet so can you imagine on day 3 what it was like Had to pay for sun beds on the beach (10euros) Bar area to the side of the hotel does not have enough seating area Watered down drinks After 4 days we moved hotels to a different part of the island and at least we felt we had a holiday Don’t be fooled by the wonderful photos most have been taken at really good angles and are very misleading

Returned from an awesome trip at this hotel, the staff could not do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very modern and pristinely clean. Safety is of importance and all staff are masked and hand sanitizer stations throughout the hotel. The view from my balcony was epic, room was also very clean. The Pool area is small but I only ever used twice as much prefer the beach - the only feedback I’d give for the pool area is to perhaps install a small fridge/freezer for soft drinks or beers for guests. The area is slightly small so a bar may be too large but that would be my only feedback. Everything else - perfect! Special thank you to Lefteris in the lobby bar! You make the best Pina Coladas in Greece and hope to see you again next year! Thank you so much for everything.😊

We have just returned from 11 nights at this hotel booked at the last minute after our holiday to the Canaries was cancelled. So pleased that we chose this hotel. The place is very clean and all smart . The food was very good and is now served to you from behind protective screens. All staff wearing masks and loads of sanitiser stations everywhere! Rooftop pool is lovely apart from having to trek down to the beach bar to get a drink! Our room was quite small which wasn’t a problem as we were only in it to sleep! Only criticism was that we had no drawers or shelves only a hanging space on the wardrobe so didn’t unpack my stuff as had nowhere to put it apart from hanging some dresses! The staff were amazing! The restaurant manager was very friendly and we had a lovely lady - Denada bringing our drinks at our mealtimes. Nikos runs the beach bar and us very friendly and Lefteris makes super drinks at the lobby bar! All in all we would definitely return and request a bigger room!

Just got back from a week here. I have been incredibly impressed with the hotel. The room was a good size with a fridge and air-conditioning. The balcony was large enough to sit, read and drink wine on. The room we had overlooked the main road of Hersonissos but was not noisy due to a good quality double glazed door. Where this hotel really comes into its own though is the staff! All of them were absolutely amazing! We had a slight hiccup at check in as the intermediary supplier that booked the room on behalf of the travel agency, had inexplicably cancelled the room. The lady on reception though was incredibly helpful and found us two rooms for us and the kids. She said that she'd get in contact with the supplier and that it would all be sorted out! It was. The restaurant staff were lovely, very friendly and made breakfast and dinner times a joy! Denda (I think that is her name) was incredibly friendly and helpful to the point of us having a laugh about my sunburn, I love it when you can have a good laugh with people! The food was brilliant, a good variety that was good quality and very well cooked! All in all, a fabulous place with amazing staff! We loved it!
