I have just retrurned from a 7 nights stay at Gran Melia with my wife.
The Hotel is brand new and built with the highest standards. It is definetely one of the top hotels in Greece and should be rated among one of the topest in the World for summer vacations.
Landscape: 10/10. The hotel is embracing an isolated golf, leading to a beautiful beach where you can really enjoy swimming.
Architecture: 10/10. Perfectly match the landscape. Built mainly with stones.
Rooms: 10/10. Very Spacious, modern and alegant decoration, smoothly mathced with the overall design.
Facilities and main buildings: 9/10. Great Lobby, reception area, Spa, Main Pool Area, general architecture etc.
Staff: 10/10. Really enjoyed the attitude of all people currently working at Gran Melia. The management of the Hotel is consatntly present at all places. They also did their best to satisfy some extra needs of ours.
Food: 6.5/10. The only issue they should improve. Room Service, Breakfast, Greek Tavern, Pool Bar, Beach Bar, Ocean Restaurant would be ok for a usual hotel but they have a distance to run in order to reach a Great Hotel as they have done with all the rest. I am pretty sure that they would do better next year in this area also.
Value for Money: It was worthing our money 140%.
