We have just returned from Lyttos Beach Hotel and did enjoy our holiday. However it is not really catered for English guests. The complex is beautiful and the location is excellent, but there is no entertainment for me or my 5 year old boy.
By day the pool area is great for both adults and children and will keep everyone satisfied, my son absolutely loved the the water pirate ship which has several slides and water features. The park is the best holiday park I have seen whilst abroad with a great zip wire.
If you are looking to use the child care facility and you are English, this would be impossible as no one speaks English and this not ideal. My son never met another English child to play with and on the whole complex there was less than 10 English people.
However for us we enjoyed the nice surroundings and the hotel facility's so it did not spoil our holiday. Dining arrangements was not the best in the main restaurant. This was due to table of eights and sharing tables with total strangers. This would not be so bad if we could communicate to each other. The best way to avoid this option is to book the day before for the Beach Taverna, it is a lot more relaxed there but does shut at least once a week for private functions.
Overall it was a nice holiday but if entertainment and very few English people on the complex bothers you - don't go!
Nickos at the pool bar was very friendly and made everyone feel welcome. Also the lady at fish spa is well worth a visit.
