I travelled with my partner in sept for 2 weeks. The transfer time was great and check in was quick and easy. The room was very spacious with a nice view of the sea but the trees could do with being cut back to improve the view. The noise from the airplanes did not cause any problems for us. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels changed regularly. We had a slight prob with our door not locking but this was rectified within 10 minutes of reporting the problem to reception.
The pool was a good size and we never struggled to get a sun lounger. The entertainment throughout the day was good but was pretty poor on the night time for an all inclusive hotel hence we had a walk every night to the local bars. We did stay in one night to watch the karaoke but it was pretty poor and after drinking vodka all night we felt no different at all - you would struggle to get drunk at this hotel! The beach is a 2 min walks from the hotel and is pebbly so water shoes are a must but the sea, once in is lovely and warm. The waves can tend to get powerful when there is a strong wind but it was great fun chasing the waves.
On the negative side the choice of food and drinks let this hotel down. The women who greet you at the dining hall are lovely and in our opinion breakfast was by far the better meal of the day. During the first week of our holiday the choice of food seemed to be ok but the choice is limited and very repetitive (we are not picky eaters at all). Both me and my partner both had sickness and diarrhoea but I am not blaming this on the food at all - I do think it was a bug which was going around the island which we unfortunately caught! However, after we had both been ill there was no food which appealed to us so we took the decision to eat out. Im not sure as the season is coming to an end that they perhaps did not put on the 'full' menu in the dining hall? .There are many lovely local restaurants and in particular Stefanos - the food was lovely and portion sizes massive! Again the drinks were not very enjoyable - the choice is again limited. I feel that the standard and choice of the food and drinks let this otherwise lovely hotel down. I would not discourage anyone to visit this hotel but I honestly don't know how it's rated number one hotel in ialyssos.
We have been to many all inclusives all over the world and this is no where near the worst we have stayed in but it is not the best either - a few improvements to the food and drink and this hotel could be fantastic. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
