It sounds a bit over the top, but the Anassa was indeed the best of many hotels I have stayed in. From the welcome on arrival to the farewell handsake as we left, the service was exemplary. The room we had (extended studio suite) was spotless, well-equipped and roomy. I didn't recognise the 'showing its age' description in a previous review.
The food in the various restaurants was top-notch and in the variety of locations, from the Basiliko at the top end, to the Armonia bar, where snacks and light meals could be taken, the quality was great and they cater for all tastes. In particular lunch at Pelagos near the pool was always first class.
The pools are clean, the beach is ideally located just a short walk away, with comfortable loungers and attentive service, and the rest of the public areas are spotless.
The spa was also very good. My other half, a bit of a spa queen, said the massage was the best she had ever had.
As a venue for a holiday, even at the close of the season, it could not be faulted. It isn't cheap, but we didn't want a budget hotel with crowded pools and beach. For a special stay I would highly recommend it.
