We've just returned from Nana Beach & I have to say it's been very, very, good.
The positives - well laid out so you are never too far from a pool if that's your scene. Plenty of sun beds. They have made good use of the space available so you can always get a sun bed at any time of the day (apart from the pool areas). You could get a sun bed on the beach as late as 9.30am. The 'harbour' walls ensure you have placid sea to swim in at all times and if you like snorkelling it's like being in an aquarium. The staff are really friendly and helpful. It's an easy 20 minute stroll into Stallis if you fancy shopping or a change of scene.
The negatives? The buffet is a bit dull. We found some nights to be very good but others dull as plain rice. This is highly subjective but we found there was very little change night to night.
The quiet area are rooms 600 to 900 and I recommend you ask for one of these and specify an upstairs i.e. 1st floor room as the pipe work from upstairs rooms goes past the ground floor rooms quite noisily and will wake you up if you are not heavy sleepers.
Whilst 43% of the bed space is allegedly reserved for Brits, this feels like a German/Russian hotel so if you like to meet & greet other Brits it may not be the place for you. That said, it is the only place I've visited in the med where I've thought 'I could see myself coming back here'. I would definitely recommend it if you have a young family.
Lastly, a really nice little touch - if you do have a young family you can take a bottle of wine back to your room while the kiddies go to sleep. Not seen that before from an all inclusive.
