Having read the latest review it was with some concern that I and my party of 14 (age betwen 2 and 75) left to go on holiday on 24th August. We could not fault this hotel/complex in anyway. The staff were the most helpful I have ever encountered. The food was excellent - the choice great. The pools were ideal - never crowded - both sea water and freshwater to choose - certainly never dirty. The entertainment was good. Everynight there was live music. The two shows we attended were entertaining and in the daytime there were many activities. I was so impressed that they allowed a local animal welfare group to come along to the hotel grounds one evening. I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying a visit to this hotel.

Our holiday at this hotel was a real dissapointment. Extremely dirty see (and the beach as well), small and salty pool, dark bungalow with destroyed air-condition, acceptable food only for extra charge, almost full prize for children older than 2, but any special activities for them (boring programme in Grecoland, any evening activities - no minidisco, nothing at all. )
This hotel is not worth the prize. Available for couples with no children and no ambitition to swim at the sea. It was really my worst holiday at all.

I was astonished to see the review listed. I have stayed with my children three times at this hotel and also at another Grecotel. We think it is great, the staff are lovely, the food is OK, the position is great. I think Grecotel do a really good job.

We arrived at the hotel on the 9th may 2003 to find we had been upgraded to a Garden room having booked A LA CARTE with THOMPSONS we were dissapointed to find our accomadation tired and tatty. The hotel grounds were untiddy,and the food appaling do not belive every thing you read in the brocure.This is not a 5 starr hotel in my opinion.We stayed one night and moved hotels at considerable expense the Thompson reps did not want to know although one of them did agree with us with regard to the state of the accomodation. My advice think long and hard before arranging to stay here.
