My husband, girls aged 11 & 7 and myself stayed here in peak season with the aim of having a relaxing holiday. The Aquis Pelekas Beach certainly delivered that. I agree with other reviews that 4* would be a more accurate rating, but the room was exceptionally clean and tidy, and the reception staff most helpful when we had a problem with our air conditioning, getting it sorted out that day. The drainage issue is something that needs attention. We did not suffer any problems in our room, although the poolside toilets could be contributing to the occasional waft by the pool.
However, the beach is simply stunning and the sea clear and sheltered. It does miss the hotel beach bar, but there were always plenty of sun beds around the pool, which was rarely too crowded. The buffet restaurant offered lots of variety, but suffered a little from some interesting refreshed combinations the following day. There was an a la carte restaurant for a supplementary charge, but we didn't feel the need to visit it as we always found things we liked.
The thing that stood out most for us was the friendliness of all the staff, in particular the animation team for their sheer enthusiasm and energy. We had an absolutely lovely time, and were sad to leave. Thank you Mr Mexas and your staff for a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
