As someone who loves Couples only holidays I thought I would post this as my guideline to "will it suit you"
First off...Research is key. If it says Low key entertainment..then you ain't getting "Status Quo" blaring every night. You wont have manic animation teams blowing whistles and playing beach leap frog whilst drunk as skunks.
Most are AI. This caters for lots of nationalities, different likes, wants and needs. You are not going to get lobster thermadore every night, but for the ones who moan about the choice...I query the choice they have at home? Bet they don't have 30 different desserts..and go back for thirds..whilst complaining of course.
Private pools. These are private for the room you have been allocated for the duration of your holiday. Private meaning for your use only..they are not isolated away from other guests who may pass by your room..if it is total privacy you want..book a villa.
Beach. If it says pebble, stoney, narrow or shale. Then don't write a review about beaches being shingle..not Sandy wide sweeping glorious beach. The clue is in the description. Disappointment is only if you think descriptions are there as a joke.
Quiet location means just that.
So, I am returning to the Oceanis Adults Only hotel for our third visit in September. It is glorious. It suits us because our darlings have flown the nest. We are in our mid 50's, we love the no kids around concept. We can do what we want when we want without listening to kids crying, screaming etc. We can enjoy the company of like minded people and join in the activities that are on offer each and every day. Yes it is low key, Greek evening,Asian fire eaters, Black and White evening,Friday bar b q, Film night with popcorn. Resident musician.
During the day, cookery lessons, spa taster days, cocktail making, dance and Greek lessons. Yoga and crazy golf. All advertised on the notice boards so there for you. If you don't move from your loungers to look...pah..don't then complain.
Yes of course nothing is perfect nothing suits everyone all the time, but if you want to chill out, be yourself, have a laugh a dance and meet wonderful people, then book. If you want in your face 24 hour entertainment where the staff are just big kids with no class..then book something else.
Be aware, people do laugh after midnight at these hotels, lift doors open, people clip clip past your room or private pool room, and sometimes are a little worse for wear, but it is their holiday too. Go on live a little, stay up til 10 pm.
The staff are amazing incredible people. I salute their dedication, which at times is humbling.
Roll on September. Couples only here we come.
