We based our decision on Trip and the Pegase book from our belgian travel agent.
We hired a car for the full duration of the trip (2 weeks) so we arrived at the hotel by our own means. Easy to find and big parking space is available. The room was available immediately and after some trouble with the airco remotes everything was fine.
Room was large, storage was too little. Bathroom was tiny and taking a shower in the bath took a few days before you could balance and not fall out the tub. That could be improved.
First of all I would like to congratulate the restaurant staff. They are very professional, always friendly and helpful and when there is a problem it gets solved immediately. Never encountered such a high quality service in a hotel restaurant.
Breakfast; ok, wide selection. Every day about the same. You can get eggs and pancakes made to order. Coffee is a problem. Since the coming of the espresso machines we are no longer used to drinking percolated coffee. Another detail: the bacon is there every day, and every day it is cooked instead of crisply baked.
Lunch: you can get lunch at the pool bar. Everything is made to order. HUGE portions. Very good quality.
Dinner: This is where we were disappointed. We selected this hotel specially because there is no buffet for the main course. You can choose between 3 dishes every day and 2 soups. Serving portions are small. We had the impression that nothing was made to order. Every dish we got was set-up so it could be made "en-masse" in the kitchen.
This means that all meats, fish and pastas have been slowly cooked to death. Do not expect many grilled meats/fish because this cannot be made this way. We got 1 dish in 2 weeks. Quite disappointed in that...
Wine list is excellent but expensive (expect x3 to x4 what you pay in supermarket).
At nigh there is always live music and to our surprise it was very nice.
We disliked the greek and italian buffet nights the most. Seating outside is fantastic during the greek buffet.
Beach: excellent location, almost private, magnificent water colour. Many chairs but in the high season you need to get there early or the are all booked... Snorkelling is the best we had in Europe so far. So make sure to bring your gear.
Fitness: it's there bit that is al there is to it. 1 treadmill, 1 rowing machine (old) and 1 set of weights. Not even a bench so you can actually use the weights.
Internet: free in the lobby, in the room you need to pay. The first week the internet was down 5 days out of seven. Even the paid internet was down. Not good. Fortunately the hotel next door has free internet and if you're lucky with the room location you can get it from there
