Well I hope this review will help for anyone with an open mind and realise that a holiday is what you make it!
We have just returned home from our 10 day break wishing we had stayed for longer.
As it would seem with many of the reviews, we also booked a bit last minute and although very sceptical to begin with, that was soon forgotten.
Travelling as a family with a 9 year girl, it was important that there was something for everyone and we were not disappointed.
The whole complex may be a bit basic but very welcoming.
All the staff were friendly, the area was spacious, the rooms were acceptable and there was always something edible on the menu.
The pool is a focal point and we couldn't get our little girl out of it!
There is also the beach and a lovely blue sea immediately behind and a coastal walk into acharavi.
There was a mixture of British, Germans, French, Italians and Greeks all holidaying together, so there were cultural differences. But overall there was a good atmosphere around the place.
The animation team were a very tight knitted friendly group, who clearly have a good working relationship. We loved them all, weronica is amazing with the kids, lizzie has time for everyone, gala does the funniest things and shaggy has the energy and outgoing personality to convince people that taking part might just be a laugh. ( he wouldn't last five seconds on britains got talent, but he is very entertaining, gives 100% and is the biggest asset this place has to offer!)
As with all holidays there is scope for improvement and its always the little things that left the place down.
From speaking to other guests, the main issue was the rooms. They are generally family rooms on two levels. Typical bedsit layout, but the kids area is up wooden steps and in a small Roof eaves alchove. Our girl loved it, but it was a bit of a worry that she could get up in the night and go tumbling down the stairs.
Then there was a bit of maintenance around the place. Loose and bad fitting shower attachments broken balcony airers, damaged sunbeds, which would just appear to require a few new nuts and bolts and Bird mess that would collect and need clearing or jet washing.
The other thing was the lack of selection at the all inclusive snack bar and having to pay for drinks after 2300 hours.
In the time that we visited, certain improvements were being made. Which included a separate salad area in the restaurant, new plumbing and building maintenance and rumours that the roof terrace bar is to open next week.
Hopefully the management are taking notice of the feedback they are receiving and there will be continued investment.
This is a nice area with a lot of potential. Acharavi is a pleasant little town with a small fun water park on the doorstep. The sea is beautiful and the beaches just need a bit of maintenance.
We would definitely go back again and would recommend it to friends.
I would rate this holiday as good value for money, it won't be for everyone, but some people are never satisfied wherever they go and whatever they pay.
As the animation tshirts read "no stress in Greece"
