We stopped for 6 days 5 nights at this hotel only as it was a managers special transfer from our 4 star Atlantica Princess in Trianda Rhodes. We were worried at first why we had this upgrade but it was as they said just to see what we thought and give our review.
This hotel is fantastic for children we have a 7 month old baby but they still had a free swimming class from birth which was great! Apart from that you had to put her into Crèche for other activities and we didn't want to leave her as we wanted to spend all our time together but the staff seemed lovely and all fully qualified which you would expect as it was €11 per session which I think was up to 2 hours only, however they did have deals on the more sessions you booked . Only problem was there was a bug going around also when we were there which my partner got and also a few kids from the church were getting so there were a few sick kids about but it's like at home when one gets it they just pass in on.
The room we had was not a swim up but they were close to the pool as most rooms so this made no difference to us and we got lots more sun than them rooms :))). Rooms are lovely new and modern however not 5* but Greece star is lower than Uk. I would say it's a 4 star though.
We found the bedding was not changed so asked others who had been there almost 2 weeks and their bedding had also still not been changed but this was down to some sort of problem apparently but rooms are cleaned every day.
Food was lovely lots of choice and staff in the restaurant were lovely as were reception staff and animation team However we did find our other hotel more friendly which could have been down to the size as it was smaller.
Animation team and things for kids were the best we have ever seen just great,! The water park and activities were brilliant however not much for the adults but this would only have bothered us if we were there for 2 weeks 1 week would have been enough for us as there is nothing to do in the area it's actually quite run down which is a shame. It's easy to hire a car though which we would suggest as it's a beautiful island. We got a hire car outside our other hotel for € 82 euro for 4 days. A small 107 but was fine for us and fuel is expensive € 1.74.. so a 1.1 was fine.
Overall I would suggest this hotel but maybe a week is enough unless you get a hire car. Oh and the beach is not great but we just didn't use as you didn't need too.
Five star entertainment 4 star everything else but great however the upkeep of the hotel could be a little better for it only being quite new some things were not up kept as good as they could which will show in a year to come and the card machine was aparently out of order for almost 2 weeks and still not fixed the day we were leaving things like this could be better
