5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We were staying in this hotel in september 2013. Our rooms where upgraded to Deluxe room with Partial Sea View. The room is great. And it was not hot at the balcony.
Staff is very friendly and always ready to help. This hotel is one of that you want to return.

Few things missing from room: no hangers for swim suit and towels,no garbage bin in the room,etc. The worst I think is the quality of the food,which is not for a five star,terrible coffee in the breakfast and overvalued beverages in restaurants. Overall is a beautiful place and if they improve a few staff it will be even better. I'm not sure I would go there again since there are other five star resorts that give you five star treatment.

accommodation was great if only there was coffee in the room or room service.
the place is fantastic and worth visiting. The 3 beaches were very clean except for the mattresses. The swimming pool is great and the gardens were very well kept.

We stayed there for four nights/five days in the beginning of August 2013. Both the outdoors and the room were very clean. Great outdoor space and facilities. Pool and spa very well maintained. Great variety in the buffer both during breakfast and dinner.
We have no complains about the staff although it might be handy to have more people as we were forced to wait quite a lot during check in and check out.

Only minor improvements needed. No body lotion and toiletries (only shampoo and soap) in the room, no slippers or things you would expect to find in a 5-star hotel room.

Amazing service, they let us check out much later than normal without extra charge.

We are stayed 10-18 august 2013 a family
A pleasant resort really 5 stars. Wondefull place and amenities. Spacious and clean bungalow
The all inclusive programm was realy clever. You had the choice to drink cocktails or wines in the half of price also you have in the all inclusive real marks of beer and drinks
The italian animation team was excellent
Beaches and sea was beautifull
Negative: it has few employees for the clients, so you have to wait. The staff was rough and very rude - impolite

I hope to keep the same prices

Barcelo Hydra Beach it is a great resort in terms of location. The resort is very well maintained, very clean, great outdoor space and facilities. The management is very poor.Here are some of the issues that we experienced:
- Upon our arrival to the room there were cigars in the ash tray from the previous guests.
- The cleaning staff did not provide us with soap for more than 5 days
- The cleaning staff did not change the sheets for several days (they have to do it every 3 days-they changed our sheet on the 5th day)
- The cleaning staff did not remove our dirty glasses that we had in the room from some drinks, even though we put it in the front of the desk for this reason. We stayed for 11 nights and the glasses were still there.
- One of the towels was dirty with stains when we unfolded it.
- We never got our drinks on time. Most of the times after we were done with our mean they would bring the drinks. This is not because of the staff but because the Management decided to have 7 people for 700guests.
- You had to wait at the bar over 40min in line to get a coffee.
- Very often you would not find toilet paper in the restrooms by the dining room, swimming pool, or beach.
- The coordinator for the beach volley was nowhere to be found. Out of the 11 days we managed to play only in three games.
- The hostess at the restaurant_main dining area_ was not very pleasant. You had to wait in line to be seated.
Overall we had a good time because we did not allow all of the above to ruin our vacation. But being in many similar "all inclusive" hotels I have to say that the service was very poor. The greek staff was taken advantage because of the economic crisis. They treat them as slaves. We are not going back until we hear/read that some of the issues have changed.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in the middle of August. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow. It was perfect. It had two bedrooms and a big bathroom. A nice veranda, where we had our coffee and our daughter played with her toys. The beaches of the resort where all clean, with nice sunbeds and the sea was very nice to swim. The swimming pools, especially the big one with sea water, where also nice and clean. The animation team scheduled many activities for the residents, such as aqua aerobics, tennis lessons for kids for free, canoe lessons etc etc. Every night there was a kids dance, followed by a show and dance at the open theatre of the resort. There was a mini club, open many hours a day. The spirits where high and the residents seemed to enjoy their time a lot. The only minus was the lack of room service, which made it impossible to have a drink in our room at night. We had to buy from the village's( The rmisia) mini market. I will definitely go back next year, with friends this time!
