I've just returned from my 10-days stay in this hotel. I must say it was perfect for me. The hotel is not may be brand new and some times the usage is noticeable, but the positives significantly outbalance.
The biggest positive for me is the staff. All of them are very friendly and helpful. Starting with reception where they fulfilled all of my request, bar and restaurant staff and many others. I would like send special thanks to Daria. She gave us a very valuable information when we were planing our car trip, she took care of our satisfaction and was (is) a good friend of us.
The beach is very nice, sandy with gradual access to the sea. The beach itself belongs to the most beautiful beaches on the island. The sun-beds and umbrellas in front of the hotel are free of charge. We had any problem with finding a free place on beach. Count of the sun-beds is sufficient and event if any umbrella was available the beach guy gave us one from the storeroom. Towels for usage by the pool and on the beach are available in the reception for 5 EUR deposit and could be changed every two days. Event though there is no beach bar, they have a special beach service that let you to order drinks, that are delivered shortly.
The quality of the restaurant is good. There are two restaurants "Pergola" (main restaurant) - free of charge and "Olive tree" for 12 EUR / person. I cannot rate second one, because I've never been there. The main restaurants provides mainly greek kitchen. There are also three thematic dinners per week. Only negative I see is, that the breakfast is consisting of the same items every day. I would also prefer more interaction between cook and guest, which I saw in other hotels. I mean the cook would make a food in front of you only for you, like the fresh waffles, steak, omelet etc. I would also prefer some fruits, toasts, etc. in a snack bar rather then fries and meat balls.
I have no issue with the room. It was spacious and clean.
The nearest village is about 2 km far from hotel. If you would like to get there you can use the hotel shuttle bus approx. 5 times per day, your own car or go there by walk. The last option is very hard to do, because you must go that 2 km to the very steep hill.
Animation team I find a little bit weak. In my opinion they only put people together for some activity and sometimes just left. I didn't noticed some further social contact with guest also. The evening performances was exactly the same that I saw in different hotel last year. I must say there are 2 evenings per week with an external performance (singing, dancing), those are fantastic, do not miss them.
Finally I find this hotel as a nice place and I would like to come back once in a future.
