After never going back to the same place twice we are returning here for our 3rd visit in 3 years! Having only originally booked to keep partner happy with the 10min transfer time we just can't stay away!we returned with friends last year who also loved it. A couple of the restaurant staff even remembered us from year before which we were amazed by seeing as we went the beginning of that season and September last year!
Hotel is situated about a 5 min walk from beginning of strip of restaurants tourist shops and 10 walk in opposite direction to the beach. Also from the beach a nice walk (30 to 40 mins) leads you to laganas, which is a much busier resort and home to all the clubs and McDonald's and pizza hut if that's what you want (we didn't!) much prefered the quieter resort of Kalamaki. Which still has a good selection of restaurants and bars.
Rooms are quite basic but comfortable with a small bathroom & a balcony with a table & 2 chairs which we found perfectly adequate as out all day anyway.
The pool is a nice size though quite deep but I'm only 5"2! Plenty of sunloungers though people still get up early to reserve them! In September it was a lot busier & as there were 4 of us sometimes struggled to get beds by the pool, but there are sunbeds on the grass near the pool so not a real problem.
For breakfast there was a good fry up on offer or cereals or continental meats and cheese and a coffee machine for your hot drinks. Lunch was various hot meals from buffet. They put a list up for what the evening meal will be so you can chose whether to eat out or not. Evening meals where very nice when you sat down waiter would come and get your drinks order and another would offer you soup then if was hot buffet again & if your still not full there's always desert!
If you are booking trips I'd either book before or use one of the travel shops on the main road we found first choice trips to expensive. We booked shipwreck tour before we went for £26 each and was perfect went all the way around the island just a shame was a bit rough that day so couldn't get off at the ship wreck. Also went to Zante town by the train bus was €5 each return in the evening which made a nice change which we booked on the strip.
We can't wait to come back on 2nd may
