Blue sea hotel has a great beach that is very clean and has very smooth entrance to the sea: should be good for kids. There are free sunbeds on the lawns - it's 1 more minute to the sea so not such a big hussle. The only problem is that when the sun sets the shadow from the building covers the lawns before the beach. Better hang out on the left lawn (looking from the hotel), it falls into shadow the last:)
The rooms are quite spacious but look aged, the interior is definitely from 90s. Still, they are very clean and have almost everything necessary (but for a tea kit which I always value in a hotel). The downside about the rooms is the mattresses: we prefer softer ones and the noise behind the door. The door literally stops no sounds so when the cleaning ladies start their rounds in the morning or early-bird tourist excitedly discuss what they will have for breakfast you tend to wake-up. Maybe it's just us the owls (not waking till 9am:)).
The location of the hotel is OK, it has a small shopping center to the right and is 20-25 minutes walk from Faliraki. It has rent a car inside and a couple in 10 minutes walk diameter, quite convenient.
The dinner was of a good quality, quite tasty. But due to the hotel being almost 100% booked there was a tendency for crowds at dinner. Morevover, in rush hour (7pm-8pm you would be lucky to find a table and quite always had to leave till later. That's a shame but maybe it was due to several big groups of elderly people who had big tables reserved for them for the whole dinner.
The layout of the buffet is not perfect: the highest traffic grill section is right in the middle of the buffet and because of the queue that is always formed before it you do not have access to some of the food unless you kind of break-in before the people. Not good.
The food at breakfast was a little less good with less variety. The person who is cooking omlette does not understand the concept of cooking, unfortunately, he does not cook the ingrediencts apart from the eggs:( The water for tea tastes very, very bad and looks like filtered sea water (badly filtered, I must say as I drank filteres sea water before).
There is a lot of entertainment all day long and if you're into such kind of thing, I guess you'll be satisfied.
The staff is super helpful, they came forward to us on several occasions and were generally nice.
Overall, my impressions of the hotel are good. There is some room for improvement, but it is a 4-star hotel after all.
