“Poor Food, Great Views!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights after not having availability in another location.

The swimming pool was spacious. The staff on the reception were friendly, and there were many guest in and around the area. The hotel was used as part of many outside services.

To complement the hotel, the beach front (approximately 4 minutes away) was very clean. The views were absolutely amazing.

Covering most of the positive areas, the room was small and dated. Our room had a box television, the type sold 20+ years ago, and was really small. It was one of those rooms that opening the toilet door was take up most of the corridor preventing you from leaving the room.

The breakfast service was poor to say the least. The bread was solid stale and there were no hot meals provided at the hotel after the morning tea. The orange juice burned your throat as it was part of some high concentrate mixture.

On the plus side the rooms were clean, dated as they might have been.

We only stayed here because our original accommodation was overbooked on that day. It was cheaper than the original accommodation. I guess you get what you pay for.

If you're looking for something relatively cheap to crash, with breath taking views, and aren't too bothered about the inside catering, then this might be the place for you. If however you want an all inclusive hotel experience, then it would be better to go elsewhere.

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.

Room Tip: Bungalows are more private and closer to the restaurant. Rooms at the front of the hotel prone to no...

We stayed here on the first day of the holiday season and although they weren't quite set up( pool bar and shop not open for the first few days) we had a great time.
We stayed half board and although the food was varied it wasn't always to our taste.
If you are looking for a bit more than a cheese and ham toasie from the pool bar head to Etsi ,up past Pavlina hotel,for some great food( their portion sizes are huge!). Or the black cat which also serves great food.
The views are stunning and the rooms light airey and were cleaned everyday.
Lovely friendly people and lovely surrounding if a little sparse.
Would happily head back.

Stayed for one night and I wouldn't see myself staying here for more than a couple of nights. If you're planning on spending more time, make sure you book a room with sea view. This, the pool and the nearby beach seemed to be all the assets of this hotel. Situated in a quiet area, with a large parking space upfront, the hotel has certainly seen better days. The open space ground floor combines the reception, eating area and the way to the pool in a manner far from ideal while the 3:4 small tube TV, the dark, almost mouldy bathroom and the old-style heavy key fob shout out for a serious renovation.
The location is great, the rooms are poor and small (at least the one I got) while the breakfast is average.

Room Tip: It is certainly not worth it if you don't get a room with sea view.

I have visited this hotel with my family in August 2013. Just as we got in we were stunned by the amazing view. So if you will choose the seaview option for your acommodation, you will not be disappointed. Hotels stuff is very kind and they do they job properly, so everything is clean. Even the garden is being looked after everyday and you can really notice that. Food was delicious, most of the times everyday completely different selection. Sea very clean and sandy, just with few fish. But the less visible they are, the more probably they will bite you. However, it is rather pleasant. You will be only shocked. Just do not expect one thing, busy evening life, there are no shops apart from few minimarkets. Nevertheless greak evening is set up every week. So come and enjoy!

Room Tip: From bungalows with seaview, the nearest two to swimming pool are best.

Seeing we had family in Patras, we chose this hotel in order to be in close proximity, but also be able to relax. Having a pool and the beach was a plus. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very gracious.

We had a second floor sea view room. On a clear day you could see Patras and the bridge of Rio. The room was of standard size; quite simple; nice balcony; comfortable beds; and clean.

Breakfast is included with some variety. An optional dinner buffet is available with different options each night. The poolside bar offered snacks for lunch.

Note, the locals have access to the pool; they tend to flock in the afternoon; take up the poolside sunbeds; and bring their kids (don't take this wrong... we had our 7 yr old with us; but the pool & pool area becomes populated and noisy).

Room Tip: Ask for second floor sea view room.
