We stayed in the hotel from the 9th till the 23rd of June. We had booked it because our son got married in the Therms of Kalithea.
As well the wedding as the holiday was a lovely experience.
We had asked a quiet room and got a room in the main building above the snack bar with a view on the swimming pool. The room and the bathroom was spacious, beds were lovely. Cleaners work hard and change towls every day. They left sometimes flowers or sweets on our pillow.
The building has only a few floors so you can easy walk up and down, the lifts are nearly always immediate available.
The hotel is big and has lots of guests. Despite their busy job the people on the reception are always friendly, make time for every guest and give you correct information, also about things outside the hotel.
Considering we were half board we always had food in the main restaurant. As well for breakfast and dinner the buffets were giant. In the morning there was always fresh fruit, cold vegetables, cakes, pancakes, different kinds of yoghurt, hot food,... Too much to list up. There was even a 'light' buffet !!
In the evening there was lovely starters, salads, hot meals,....
There are no fixed tables but it was never a problem to find a free table. We were served by Thula and her collegues and this went always quick and with a big smile.
All the staff made us really feel very welcome.
We loved having a coffee in one of the bars during the day. Friendly spotless service and we got always free cake, glass of water and 'schnaps' with it... Yummie...
The beach is down hill, but the nice clean water and the coffee +... was a nice reward and made the walk back up enjoyable.
In the evening we enjoyed a short walk in the resort - lovely gardens with loads of flowers or a drink in the main bar.
In case you go halve board, take enough cash with you as everything needs to be paid immediate. It is not possible to withdrawl money in the hotel and the nearest ATM is at least 25 minutes walking along the main road (down and up hotel) in another hotel.
