My wife and i stayed here for the w/c 12 June. This hotel is situated in the countryside and is a fair walk from the nearest village of Kato Achia. This however, makes it a great destination for those wanting a quiet escape. Lovely pool and the stone / sand beach is accessed via steps at the rear of the property - not great however for those with walking / climbing difficulties.
We found one problem with the pool - it often gets very busy at the weekends with Greek familes using it so be aware of this but the beach is long and loads of room. The pool bar is ok but rather limited choice. Beach sunbeds are just 2 euros.
Our room (201) was decent enough with a nice balcony overlloking the front entrance - these front balconies are big !
Other than the pool and beach, the hotel provides little in the way of other distractions so you need to like water !
The buffet restaurant where evening meals are taken is a two minute walk also from the rear of the property. Breakfast is in the hotel itself and is a little samey with the usual cheeses, ham, tomatoes etc with either bacon, omelletes , sausage and fried eggs plus jams and cereal etc. Nothing special but adequate.
We found the evening meals to be very good with a good selection of cold salad choices plus a number of greek specialites each day - you could normally find at least 5 or 6 mains choices each evening and no two evenings were the same . Quality is good though compared with most tavernas i have frequented, i found some dishes were overcooked.. Desserts were very good. If you fancy a change, the taverna at the rear of the hotel next door is very good.
It was my wifes 50th and for her birthday treat i asked the hotel to arrange a nice birthday cake for her which they were very happy top do.
Lovely staff - very helpful. Car hire can be arranged at reception but two days for 100 euros i found steep but got a cheaper quote of 90. Olympia is an easy 1.5 - 2 hour drive away.
Mossies are a problem but the Herbal Mossie gel obtainable in the hotel mini market is very good but just dont smell it - you have been warned !
Excursion choices are very good but expensive - not impressed with Thompson as only 6 people wanted to go on the Athens trip and it was cancelled at the last minute and i only found out when the hotel rang them at 7pm the previous evening.
Overall, a relaxing and quiet location and hotel if a little quiet for me but ideal for a lazy chilled holiday. My wife absolutely loved it.
