Just got back from 'All inclusive' holiday. The rooms look completely different then the ones in the website gallery and there is no internet connection in the rooms. But the place is great for kids, water slides, playground and evening activities are great. The buffet is great but if you are hungry around 16:00 o'clock there is no way for you to eat so you have to manage your day accordingly.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the beach.

First choice rep does not visit hotel except to sell his trips, dumped from coach and left to own devices . No a la carte restaurant,no british kids club,international drinks at extra charge and wi-fi only available in pool bar or reception. However hotel was clean and tidy with little litter, and there were plenty of sun beds although towels appeared early on prime beds. The food was very basic and mainly the same taste all the time. Would not recommend this holiday.

Room Tip: Do not choose a bungalow room as this can be on first or second floor - yes that's right

We went to Lyttos Beach at the end of august with our 2 children, We had a family room, which was large. It included a double bed and two singles with room for a cot. We also had a very large balcony. Overall the room was fine, the Air con worked and was clean (when we arrived)
Talking of cleaning, this was not at all good!! in 7 days our room was swept once (on the last day) and the bathroom was never cleaned (except the bin being emptied) the lined was changed once and towel daily at our request. 3 dirty glasses were never changed in a week, and a table never wiped. I found this extremely disappointing. The beds are also VERY uncomfortable!

The food - This was OK. very very repetitive, and with only two restaurants choice was near enough the same. The seating in the hotel is a massive issue especially if you are in a group smaller than 8! There are no tables for 2,4 or 6 unless you book into the downstairs restaurant the morning before you want to eat there. (you will have to sit with other guests if you are a small group) Another thing that disappointed me is that ice cream is available only between certain times and once its gone its gone!! There is no ice cream for dessert at either restaurant?

The pool - fantastic size, with a separate slide pool, which is manned by two lifeguards. Sunbeds around the pool didn't seem to be an issue, although we spent our time on the beach.

The beach - A sandy beach with plenty on umbrellas and beds, free of charge. it is the windy side to the island, so the sea was red flag all week.

The Staff- with exception to the bar man at night by the pool, the rest were just miserable and made no effort with guest....the reason, the majority of guests in this hotel are the most rudest, obnoxious people I have ever met, to the point it actual ruined my holiday.

Kids- the only thing for British kids is the water slides. The kids club are in German and not very welcoming for other nationalities.

Overall- Would I go back? No. it needs a lot of work doing to this hotel, and I hope its pulled from the first choice brochure as it isn't catered for British people.

the hotel is very nice, and with the excellent service it makes an excellent holiday resort.
Marvelous facilities for families- a swimming pool with great water slides for kids and adults, a pool with a "pirate ship" with smaller water slides for smaller kids, a playground right next to the swimming pool, a kids club.
the beach is very nice (though the waves were rather high when we were there).
the food and drinks are good.
If you want to eat at "the Tavern" at dinner (- a restaurant by the beach), at dinner ,instead of the regular dining room, (which is fine as well), you need to make reservations two days in advance.
At lunch however there is no need for reservations at the "tavern".

the service was great. we were 2 adults, one teenager and two kids. we made reservation for 2 rooms, however we were suggested a big suite instead of two rooms because the rooms were too far a part . the "Apollo suite" was great, with an exit to the beach. It did not have a bath tub (just a shower) but it didn't bother us too much.

Finally- We forgot a bag with some swimming goggles and swimming suits on our last day in the hotel.
the hotel were extremely nice and helpful, located the bag and sent us all of our stuff, by air mail, free of charge!
this was so nice that we suggested to pay them back and also felt that it gave a sweet taste to the end of this great vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the beach are more convenient if you go to the beach often.

The food in the hotel is good but is no big different in the serving between the days.
The main pool is big and They are 3 water slides that good for children and nice for adults.
There are more from 10 tennis courts in the hotel and the reception gives the racket and the balls.
There is a excellent synthetic grass field for soccer.

Rooms are simple and don't luxurious but very clean
