We arrived at 9.30pm and were warmly greeted by Alexandra, who informed us that the dining room had been kept open especially for us and our fellow travellers. A very nice touch and got our holiday off to a good start. Our room was in the main building at the far end, nicely furnished, really quiet, with stunning views, only the crashing waves to disturb you.
Whilst we were at the hotel, we read a previous review which said the hotel was tired and shabby looking. We deliberately went looking around to see what these people were on about as this was not the impression we got at all, quite the opposite. We found the bar area had beautiful cream leather sofas, the pool area had comfy seating and loungers, the rooftop area had brilliant large wicker sofas and brand new loungers. The restaurant was perfect, stunning views, linen tableclothes, tables cleared very quickly. The only area we saw which was a little shabby was the stairways and frankly who cares about that...the rest of the hotel was absolutely gorgeous.
There was nothing we could find to fault with this hotel, yes its a steep walk back from the village but we were delighted about this as we got some exercise after all the lovely food. We walked most days and found it took about 50 mins to walk into the surrounding villages. Any locals we came across were very friendly and were delighted to help with directions to local beauty spots. It really is stunningly beautiful around this hotel and I would suggest that you do try and get out and about.
The only thing that prevented me from awarding full marks was the entertainment. The young team are very friendly and tried their best but it was just not to our taste I'm afraid. The singers on the Friday and the Greek night were fine but the rest I'm sorry to say was a bit of a let down.
