This pretty much had all the makings of a perfect family holiday. We travelled with my mother-in-law, and 3 children aged 10, 8 and 4. It was a magical place. So friendly on arrival. There was so much for the children to do on site with pools and mini-parks, and then in the water park opposite, for all ages. Beach is gorgeous, and being guests at the Star Beach village you don't have to pay for loungers. Water was crystal clear.
The animation team, especially the fantastic Giuseppe, were wonderful with the children. My 8 year old, Bea, cried when we left she adored him so much! They also had fun at the kids club. Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere, gorgeous gardens and a nice big family room with separate kids area.
Nice mix of all nationalities, none dominated.
The only reason this is a 4 not a 5 is that this hotel needs to decide what its target market is. Half way through our holiday we were inundated with more than a hundred Dutch teens celebrating the end of high school. They were drunk, all the time, and pretty much all over the place. It seems the waterpark is a big attraction for the teenager and young adult market, not just families, so Hersonissos can be a very lively resort, and the drunk teens did disturb us in the night.
However I gather that we just were unlucky and that at other times of the year it is just families. If it had just been a small number of drunk youngsters then we would hardly have noticed, but the numbers allowed to presumably block book this lovely hotel did spoil it for us a bit. But we would definitely go back again, as it was up there with the best places for a holiday with children we've ever been.
