We have not booked a "package holiday" for about 8 years prefering to go it alone and book 4&5 star hotels around the world this year we have traveled allot Sri lanka, Maldives various cityc breaks so looking for inspiration and relaxation we consulted trip advisor for top rated greek hotels and Costas Golden Beach kept coming only 3 star but we took the plunge and booked it through thomsons. WHAT A REVELATION after a fantastic transfer through the mountains with great views we was droped of at a small village to change to a minibus as the large coaches cannot get down the mountain roads to Agios Giorgios. The moment we arrived the owners Demitros and Dina made us welcome the room although basic had fantastic views across the bay and soon became a home from home. The hotels setting mountains out back sea out front was perfect the resort was very quite at night but during the day there was plenty going on Boats for hire. Jet skis, Diving centre.banna and ring pulls. Great walks upto the local mountain villages (all walks in red folder at reception) do not miss the walk to Afionas around 1hour what spectacular views and great tavernas when you get up there. At night the resort has about 8-9 resturants no loud music or drunken yobs but the food at the hotel was superb with quiz nights, magic shows ect.
The hotel is immaculatly clean with great garden areas superb sun trap pool and jacuzi great views and only a few steps across a quiet narrow road and beach to the sea The Owners and staff (mainly family) are fantastic the hotel dogs good company with only around 40 rooms you soon get to know everyone.
We had such a great time we have already booked to go again. As we said at the begining of this review this hotel is a gem and knocks spots of some of the 5 star hotels we have stayed in and thomsons was great as well (no transport to sort out or flight confirmations to worry about) so bring on the package holiday
