When I started writing this small review, I am enjoying a fresh brewed espresso at the bar (always served with a big smile and a good morning by mr Vanghelis). This is part of my daily routine now. Just waking up, having coffee and having some breakfast. All year I am travelling around the world for work. I see a lot of hotels but in none of them I allow myself to enjoy the place, the luxury of the hotel and the hospitality of the professionals working there. Last year we discovered Aqua Blu. Now (August 2014) we were back for the fifth time. Normally me and my wife do not visit destinations and hotels twice when we spend leisure time. Aqua Blu is the exception to the rule. Hotel Manager Maria Strati (for those of you who read all the other reviews she is already well known) gives her upmost to fulfil the promise of a 5 star boutique experience. She understands what exceeding expectations is really about. Combined with all the other reviews in which Mrs Strati and Aqua Blu are described, it is not necessary to point this out in more detail. For those who really like luxury, a real 5 star experience and for those who allow themselves to enjoy it: Aqua Blu is the perfect destination.
For those who are interested, just a small overview of what we do during a day at Aqua Blu. After we have breakfast we go to the pool. The pool area is one of the main relaxation areas of the hotel in which you can enjoy the sun, a swim, drinks and amazing food. The host at the pool (Maricel) makes live even more convenient. All day long he serves us with drinks and food on the large sunbeds. In the afternoon we go to the spa to enjoy some treatments. At the evening we prepare ourselves for dinner at Cuvée Restaurant from chef Stamatis Marmarinos (If you are interested, please see our review about Cuvée itself). The following days we repeat this again and again. This is a real holiday for us. We adore it and we will be back in October!
