Our stay was 19th june - 3rd july. We travelled as two couples, age range 27-36, staying in two separate rooms no.521 near main restaurant and no.643 near mini golf, in middle of complex. We did ask for two neighbouring rooms but hotel was fully booked. Rooms were perfectly adequate, beds on the firm side, our bathrooms both had shower head bracket unlike some other reviews saying there's did not....but large gap between screen and top of bath so water did go on floor, but this is being picky!!
Grounds are in very good condition, with pathways being washed down and swept every day by the friendly staff.
Say hi to Kostas one of the day time bar staff at the swim up pool bar, very friendly guy and ask Mateus for 'no name shot' in the evening (same bar) if you fancy something with a kick!!!
Loads of activities for people with children throughout the day and evening, Laura and Vee from the family world team are a credit to the hotel.....daily quiz was fun. Animation team are none stop, (bit annoying at times) organising games, activities, tombola and evening entertainment.....the fire show in pool was very good where guests are invited to take part.
Food couldn't be faulted with lots to choose from at all meals, to much to list, with themed evening meals 5 times a week as well as offering all the usual choices. Food would only become repetitive if you are a fussy eater. Wine was not the best.....and rose seemed to be red/white mix!!
Beers are only served in small plastic cups when poolside and small glasses if at a table.....no pints available.......bit of a let down, would prob need three to make a pint! Only local spirits etc in the all-inc package, which is the norm in most places.
Tea/coffee, ice cream, cakes and rolls available at both pool bars throughout the day.
Private beach is small and overcrowded, but other beaches left and right offer more space.
Check out is a 12noon, we had a late flight so wanted to booked a late check out but hotel was fully booked so couldn't....but we were given access to another room 568 was showering and changing.....the bathroom in this room was more of a wetroom with no shower curtain or screen and made us wonder if they are in process of updating further rooms to the standard of the ones we had.
Analipsi is a quiet resort, but does have a selection of cafe/bars and tavernas within a 15 min walk.
perfect relaxing holiday, thanks to all the hotel staff!! Would highly recommend....
