it's already a bit of time since been there.
we went there as 2 couples, on first week of June, and probably it was the best time to go there as it was't to hot yet, and not as many people in a hotel, but at the end of stay hotel was fully booked.
Rooms was ok, maybe there was some tiny thing what you won't expect from a 5* hotel, but we went there to relax not to look problems in a room
food was great, all the nights, just thing we didn't like was that at the evening all drinks been served in thin plastic cups, that makes you feel like in a very cheap hotel.
another thing you might not like is cats and dogs around the table when you eating, i don't know where from they were coming from but it was constantly around. for us it was't a big issue but other people clearly didn't liked it. at one night dog nicked my wife's sandal and ran away so it was a challenge for me to catch him after few drinks, but it was a good laugh for everybody around.
the worst thing in all stay was that toilet near the pool was very dirty and smelly at all times, that was bit disguisting, as it was the place place you was going everynight as it is near the pool bar area where we were spending all the nights
animation team not the strongest so if you leaving all the fun on the nights to leave down to them you might disappointed.
if you want to get sun lounge with a nice view be quick as all them will be ''booked'' with towel by older ''lizards'' (we nicknamed those people who lay down there all day everyday).
as i mentioned food was fine;
next to the hotel ir very nice bar run by a family with beautiful scenery, drinks bit expensive but worth that just for a view
overal the hotel not definetelly not 5* good 3/average4, bt it is worth money as per couple it cost only £750 (incl flights)
there is really nice nice beach in front ofh otel (was lucky that we didn't boked another one more to the south from Pelekas as it was only stones around and smelly sea).
if you got a car you should go to another beach which is just behind a rock/hill to the north of the hotel, really nice place
if you like bit more adventures rather than holidays in front of the pool/beach rent a car as it is not expensive and will save you loads of time, couse even get to the Pelekas town on foot is big challenge, couse there is very steep hill. and to rent a car from a hotel for a day cost as much as we paid for a whole week.
make sure you will get to Alkones village (just above the Paleokastrica ) and there is one restaurant (cant remember the name of the place) but it looks most attractive among other, its painted in white and got big car park. Reason for that breathtaking scenery, delicious food, and best ever coctails, try a milkshake as you will be impressed by the size.
