“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Costas Golden Beach is a jewel, and the family who run it should be so proud of their Hotel, it is just wonderful, having missed the cruise part of our holiday due to illness, we went for our second week at the Golden Beach, and I will say its the best holiday we have ever been on, the family are exceptional and you feel like you are part of their family from when you arrive till the day you leave. The food is fabulous and I asked for a recipe while I was there, have tried it out, but its not the same when you dont have that fantastic view from the restaurant, but thats England for you. I could have stayed there forever, the family are so hard working and are always around to answer any questions regarding the resort, which is the most chilled out place, we walked miles up hill and through wonderful olive groves everyday, and so looked forward to our delicious meal in the evenings. I felt like we had found a real jewel, its says something when this Hotel is nearly always full, if you are lucky to get a holiday there, you wont be dissapointed. I just want to send a big thank you to all the family for a wonderful holiday. Oh yes the olive oil is on ration, you will know what I mean. Thank you for everything. Carole & Donald Jenkinson Dorset.

Just returned after 2 weeks 14th July - 28th July . The family and staff were so helpful and could not do enough for you and always with a smile. Beds were comfortable and the food was excellent. Entertainment was great fun especially the karaoke and the magic act. All the extras like safe, air conditioning, drinking water and mosquito nets on doors that were free are a nice added touch. You can understand why people return over and over again . We certainly will be going back.

This small and friendly hotel oozes comfort,everyone from the head of the family to the pool man goes out of there way to ensure you have the holiday you want,in our case quiet but for some who wanted more entertainment alot of effort went into music and quizzes, although you might not want to leave the hotel it is well worth going on the lovely walks to the villages further up the mountain where the views will amaze you the hotel provides you with directions for alot of walks and are there with a warm welcome when you return.rooms are everything you could want and far better than the 3 star rating. It was our 1st visit so we couldnt compare halfboard to waiter service but we found the food superb both in the evening and on the odd lunch on the terrace.special mention to justine and helene who worked very hard and always smiling. Really pretty gardens, wayabove average in every way.hope to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms are great,we thought the rooms at the back had a cooler look to them.

Read all the reviews about this hotel before we went telling of how good it was and how so many people returned so my expectations were high.
Initially we were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome, we shown to our room which was very nice. Beds very comfy - plenty of storage and the bathroom was very nice if not a little small. TV (not that we watch it much) was a waste of time, unless you have binoculars.
The hotel is spotless and immaculate in all areas with many features you don't get elsewhere in Greece such as the sliding door with the mosquito net in your room which means you can leave your patio door open all night and a water dispenser so you can get free cold drinkable water anytime.
There are however a few things that let this hotel down. The hotel has recently changed from B&B to HB. The breakfast was the worst I have ever had in Greece. We were lucky enough to book before it changed and when eating out in the town was amazed how people we saw from our hotel who were half board eating out. We also tried the snacks menu in the afternoon and that was also poor. For this reason we were not tempted to try the buffet style meal
Thomsons also advertise the rooms as having air condtioning. This is not strictly true as the Air Con is centrally controlled and not at all adequate. It is fine while sleeping because you have your doors open because of the mosquito net but not when trying to get ready on an evening. It is the only hotel with air con I have been in where it is actually cooler outside your room than it is inside. Although we asked a couple of times if they could make it cooler between 6pm and 8pm it was never turned lower than 23deg.
It's a real shame because this is beautiful hotel in a lovely location but I will not return unless it goes back to B&B.

CostasGoldenBeach, Owner at Hotel Costas Golden Beach, responded to this review, 19 July 2014
Regarding the quality of the breakfast (the brochure clearly states that the breakfast is continental) and also of the dinner we will not go into the trouble of characterizing it good or bad, but it allows us to look our guests into their eyes, not only those who visit us for the first time, but especially those who have chosen our hotel for their holidays numerous times and who we regard as part of our family.

Regarding the A/C: We are proud to be in the position to encourage our guests during their night’s sleep to use in combination with the A/C the entry of fresh air from outside either through the balcony door’s mosquito net or through the shower which has a window equipped also with a mosquito net, thus ensuring that guests have a healthy atmosphere in their room and wake up in the morning without coughing, dry throat or headache. Certainly this facility is not offered to many guests of other establishments and personally I don’t know anyone.
In the evening, we choose a temperature that will not hurt anyone by using the A/C in their room. However, we have the ability to adapt the temperature as well as the mode in each room whenever we are asked to do so. During the day time we have chosen the fan mode and the only reason for this is to protect the health of our guests. We have never refused and we will never refuse to adapt the temperature in a guests’ room after of course we inform them of what they need to be careful in order to prevent any health damage.

As far as this specific review is concerned: The statement that the reviewer asked a couple of times is not true. They asked once a member of the family on their first day who told them that the A/C will be on and to let us know how they get on with it. We did not hear anything after that and assumed that all was fine and so the room was in fan mode and not in 23 degrees between 6-8 which makes us wonder how the reviewer came to the conclusion that the temperature in the room was 23 degrees between 6-8. The room must have been hotter than 23 degrees especially if the doors were closed and the sun hit the glass window. In any case the only thing that we feel guilty about is that we did not charge them for the AC facility.

We thank the reviewer very much for the comment concerning the TVs in the rooms. We have thought of buying larger TVs but the idea of introducing binoculars is great as apart from watching TV they can be used for sightseeing as well.

We also like to thank the reviewer for re-writing their review to comply with the guidelines of this site and we don’t mind the drop of the rating from 4 to 3. In fact, we would not mind if after this reply the reviewer dropped the rating from 3 to 1 or even 0.
