Just came back from trip to Greece, and i should say this was a great stay, a perfect vacations for us.
I already miss this place. There were a lot of worries about the hotel, but they all faded away when we saw our room! Nice and simple interior, all clean and tidy, and the more - balcony which had view to the sea! All that we could dream about. The hotel is in good location - 10 minutes walk to the center of Afitos and supermarket. To get to the sea, you need to go down the staris: for about 5-7 minutes, but for us it wasn't an issue at all. Instead, due to the location of the hotel on the top of the cliff, it provides great views from terras to the beach and the sea. The hotel doesn't have its own chaise-longues on the beach, that was a surprise for me, but not a big deal at all. There is beach bar that owes all those chaise-longues, and you can use them if you're making an order there (min 4 euros). So, it's reasonable: you also get some snack/drink at a nice enjoyable place.
The staff of the hotel was all very nice and friendly.
Special thanks to Vikki, she was always helping us with our questions! And also we rent a car with the hotel too. People were saying that in the village it is cheaper,which is obviously true, but we didn't manage to find the rental so just used the hotel service. They brought the car right to the hotel's parking place, and then when the time came and we notified we're done - just drove it back.
The restaurant food quality was good, and we were always full on breakfast/supper, so we're glad there aren't full board in the hotel! Otherwise we'd came back home being really fat! =) Especially liked the variety of dishes: personally I've tried to take a piece of every dish i haven't tried before. There were not many sea products though, which was a bit sad, but all the meat and side dishes, salads - were all very tasty.
So, to say I'd like to come to Blue Bay Hotel again and would definitely recommend it to others.
Again, thanks all the staff for lovely stay in Afitos!
