Must say was a little worried when no reviews on trip advisor for the past 2 years but what a relief. The hotel is lovely. The room is very clean and cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever experienced in Greece and the bathroom is wonderful. We have a large double shower that you don't drench the whole bathroom with whilst using it and there's plenty of room to swing that imaginary cat. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel and also free air conditioning in the room... Live and learn UK hotels!
The pool is a nice size with a very shallow end one end and a 1.8m deep end.there are plenty of beds with a jacuzzi to the side. There are plenty of shaded areas around the pool with a limited pool snack bar... The snacks are limited but the bar is not. The Greek salad here is lovely.
The hotel itself is set along a quiet road within beautiful gardens with apartment blocks 3 storeys high. I'm sure from the top apartments there are beautiful views but we are on the ground floor apartment so we have a view of the gardens only.
The sea and restaurants are a short walk away of about 6 minutes so you don't get any night noise from the town itself.
The staff are always friendly and greet you with a smile. The breakfast was adequate if not a little samie on a daily basis. Cheese, ham, tinned peaches, yogurt, tomatoes, cereals, chocolate croissants, bread, toast, cake, eggs, tea and coffee, chocolate and herbal tea. We have not eaten our main meals here but the restaurant is always well presented with plenty of residents eating.
Overall -superb hotel, superb spot
