This was our first visit to Levante Beach, having visited other Mark Warner resorts previously. The waterfront facilities and windsurfing tuition were excellent. Tuition was in small groups and was well organised so that even if you were staying for a week you'd have a few days of your holiday remaining to put your new skills to practice. Those with a bit more experience were well catered for too with clinics in the afternoon when it got a bit windier. The equipment was in good condition, everyone seemed well qualified and were happy to give you pointers or rescue you. Max, George and Fiona on waterskiing were immensely helpful and made getting on the water at 8am a pleasure. The tennis facilities are great with racquets and balls readily available and free of charge. There are six courts and there was no problem booking.  Daily social tennis was well attended. There was a comprehensive fitness program catering for a range of abilities also.

BA flights and Mark Warner transfers were seamless. The hotel was well kept and the rooms were a good standard. The safe was iPad friendly and when it malfunctioned maintenance came and fixed it within 10 minutes. The glossy photos in the brochure accurately reflect the lovely views and facilities. The only negative would be that there is no wifi in the rooms. I would expect this in a five star resort. The wifi in reception was very hit or miss too. Breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant were good. The food was kept hot and there was plenty of choice.

There are a few points that could be worked on for next year's season. There is very little to do in the evenings and Mark Warner definitely need to improve their evening entertainment for adults. Drinks on the resort are expensive and probably the reason why the resort empties out in the evenings.  There are plenty of attractive swimming pools and sun loungers but the pools were very cold and only for the brave. The sea was much warmer and pleasant for swimming though.   

The resort  was only 1/3 full as it was off peak. This seemed about right and although I would go back I would definitely avoid the school holidays. Overall Levante is a well rounded resort providing a huge range of activities for  watersports lovers and land lovers alike.

Reading mostly positive reviews about this resort I was looking forward to the break
I was not disappointed last time travelled with BA to Turkey this time it was Jet2 from Manchester again not disappointed good journey, and by the way the comment below regarding crying children on flights this is a family orientated company what do you expect.
Manager Sue welcomes everyone on arrival with a welcome drink and slice of melon while you are being booked in and your bags are taken to your room and is seen daily walking around chatting with everyone
This is the second season for the resort and without repeating comments on excellent food, rooms and facilities etc below the only down side I had was price of drinks, beer was ok but my favourite tipple Mojito was 7 euros a time, never mind only once a year.
And perhaps a bit more evening entertainment for the future, although the Greek dancing on Sunday night was great fun with audience participation required.
Water front team were as usual fantastic and encourage everyone to have a go, never water skied before and within 5 min, I was on the rope being pulled across the bay, thanks to George and his team.
All the facilities are new and believe the resort will only grow over the coming years we will definitely return in a couple of years as next year were off to Lemnos
Apart from the excellent Mark Warner staff a mention needs to go out to the hotel staff who can't do enough to help you, always having time to speak to you.
Would definitely recommend this resort to everyone book it now :)

Being Mark Warner virgins and not having been on a ‘package’ holiday in many years my husband and I, with our 6 year old son have recently returned from two weeks at Levante Beach.

If, like us, you are worried about being with so many other people (and British people at that) and, lets face it, the expense of the holiday, do not be deterred. It is the best holiday as a family we have ever had. Sue and her Mark Warner team were exceptional. They approached everything with such a great attitude and bent over backwards to be helpful. The hotel staff were mostly Greek and were both charming and efficient.

Our son went to kids club from day 1 and settled in immediately. We got into the swing of things on the 2nd week and we put him in and took him out as and when so he could just play by the pool with his new mates. The evening film club worked well for both him and us, in fact he would have gone every night but we were very aware that if we let him stay up late he would be far too tired for all the activities that were happening the next day.

My husband played social tennis practically every day and our son did both the tennis classes and the junior RYA course, which he enjoyed tremendously. We have a video of him sailing a catamaran standing up using the tiller extension, falling in and without any fuss being rescued by his instructor Will and then just getting back up and steering again. The fact that he was afraid of swimming in the sea before he went on holiday is testament to the waterfront staff who raised his confidence and got him into sailing. Both my husband and I also rekindled our love of sailing, the winds were a bit strong some days and quite a challenge but we had more than enough opportunity to go sailing, windsurfing & kayaking. Next year we will definitely be adding skiing to that list. Oh and you have to try the Crazy sofa thing that they tow from the back of the ski boat. It is such a laugh!

All in all we had an amazing time, the rooms were clean and spacious, the food we thought was excellent and yes the Taverna serves far too much food. If you throw yourselves into the activities and take advantage of the opportunities this holiday is not expensive.

And that bit about holidaying with so many people …….we met some charming couples and their children and we hope to stay in touch.

This was our first Mark Warner holiday with three children aged 4 to 8. Everything worked for us, rooms were large and clean and the resort was brilliant. Perhaps the best feature was the MW staff, from Sue the manager to all of the beach staff and childcare staff there was a friendly and relaxed air that was geared towards us all having a great time.

This is the holiday to do if you want to rest and relax but you get bored if you spend a week on a sun lounger. My wife and I did an RYA sailing course for 3 mornings and had great fun having never sailed before. The kids also did the same course so amazing when out at sea to see the kids go whizzing past on a little catmaran. We played tennis as well and again the kids had some great coaching from the tennis staff. The resources are fantastic with really good kit available for the range of activities.

For the little ones the childcare is flexible and professional. Our kids popped in and out depending on activities but the MW staff really went out of their way to make sure that the kids when in childcare were in the pools, on the beach sailing, playing tennis, doing all the things that we could do but allowing us time to relax as well without having to entertain them.

Food was good throughout the week and the hotel staff friendly and helpful. We went at the end of August and great weather helped make this our best family holiday yet. If this is the standard of MW then we will definitely go back again.

We went to Levante for 2 weeks in August this year with 3 children age 13,12 and 10.
We always like to explore new places each year, and we've been lucky to go on a few excellent trips over the last few years which all the family enjoyed.
At the moment we are seriously considering going back to Levante with Mark Warner.
It was our first experience of Mark Warner and we had some concerns based on the review comments of some, however we are now converts. I think the comment of one experienced Mark Warner couple (summer holiday number 15!!, and several winter trips as well) when asked how Levante compared and what was better/worse - response "I come on holiday to have fun, not to complain".
Normally on a family trip there are some compromises where you do things that appeal more to some members of the family - and a good holiday is when this is balanced.
At Levante we spent 2 weeks where all the family was happy all the time because there was such a variety of ways to spend your time, the kids had kids of similar age and interest to chat/play with and there is the flexibility to do things together or separately as you prefer.

Take the critics with a pinch of salt - they don't get it. Yes I've stayed at 5 star hotels in Malaysia with much better buffets at breakfast or dinner, but I've also stayed at 5 star hotels in London or Paris with much worse buffets.....
The cleaning staff had their moments, for example our room wasn't cleaned by 5pm on the middle Saturday, but this was quickly solved.

Far more important was that we all learnt to sail and dive with excellent instructors, leading to me be out in a boat on the last day with my son to compete in the "big race". Our 13 year old son disappeared through out the day (from 9am until 11 at night), checking in every now to compare plans - go for a sail with us or update on his exploits (highlight was racing a cat with 2 girls in one of the races, which was going ok until they capsized just before the end, 3 safety boats appeared and they were talked through righting it.....Our 10 year old daughter loved her group especially the weekly shows and her first taste of independence. Our 12 year old son moved between the pool and water front before sessions with his book or discussing minecraft with his new mates.

The whole experience of travel and reps was far, far better than any package holiday I remembered in the past (we have travelled much more independently on all our recent trips - Malaysia, South Africa, Italy....)
There were excursions available to book, but we were too busy enjoying the resort to want to explore outside.

Conclusion if you want to relax and enjoy your holiday being as active or lazy as you want then book Mark Warner.....

Room Tip: We were glad to have a suite in the main building which was close to the restaurant (when tired in the evening). Rooms by the pool would be easier to pop back to fetch things, and provide a base for lunch, but less private or peaceful. Rooms by the beach are nearer the other pools, bar and sailing - it depends on what you want. Look at the map in the brochure it is a very long resort.
