PLUSES:
- Hotel is very good located.
- The beach is wide.
- The descent to the water is gentle and easy.
- The restaurantS offer the variety of dishes.
- The staff is friendly and helpful.
- The owner is like a… captain of a ship – keeps an eye on everything from morning till evening, but… This “but” spoiled our stay.

Do not even try!!!! to ask the owner for changing the noisy room. The owner will propose you to… change the hotel.

We get two rooms in the worse part of the hotel. Do not never ever take the rooms from the line 501 ÷ 509.

These rooms:
1. First and most bothersome is the noise from outside kitchen air-condition. The noise is until 22.30. It is impossible to sit on the balcony since you can feel like on the factory hall. When – at last they stop (at 10.30 p.m.) – the silence is so amazing
2. Second – they have half view to the sea: first you see the roof of the building before you, than – above the roof – you can see the sea.
Other minuses of the hotel:
- Going to the beach you should take with you the water shoes since the beach is full of small stones and inside the water there are sea urchins
- You should precisely check which line of the beach beds are for free for hotel guests – first day we should change the first line for another one since first line was not for free
- There is some disorder in the beach bar – they should make some cover
- The wooden path to the sea is destroyed and dangerous for the guests
- The beach changing rooms and the showers near them are in not good condition

Room Tip: DO NOT TAKE THE ROOMS 501 until 509. They are NOISY!!!!!! because of outside air-condition for the kitchen below

Stayed at Blue dream palace in first two weeks of September. The hotel was all it promised and more, let's get the negatives out of the way first, there is a lack of storage for the clothing that you can't hang in the wardrobe and a lack of hangers ( I'm sure they would have given us more if I'd asked though).
The room we had was billed as a superior suite and was very well appointed , bathroom with shower over the bath with plenty of hot water powerfully delivered (stand up shower not the low level kind)
Comfortable beds,tv (BBC news the only English channel I could find)didn't go there to watch tv so no problem.
Small but adequate balcony with bistro set, room safe 2€ a day.
Efficient housekeeping staff.
Very friendly polite staff everywhere, food excellent, bars and restaurants very good.
Outside areas clean and tidy, pool superb shallow end for non swimmers, paddling pool for the children, plenty of beds ,poolside bar.
The beach is only metres away with more beds , crystal clear water for snorkelling.
Plenty of parking, local bus services to the local town, or if you don't mind a walk it takes about 40 minutes each way ( leave the road at Iris gold factory and take the beach path).
Special thanks to the management, Vicky for making our stay and mealtimes enjoyable,
Demitri for his cocktails and entertaining chats,the staff in the Blu bar for keeping us hydrated.

This is a beautiful green island reached only by ferry, lovely people, no traffic lights, roundabouts,traffic camera's, dual carriageways, drunks fighting.
A word of warning the island was plagued by swarms of wasps and this is so we were told an annual problem. That said we only witnessed one person being stung, we found that if you gently brushed them away rather than swatting at them they move away.

We stayed for 11 nights in September, weather was superb. On arrival we were upgraded to a executive room with private pool for 1 night, and had to move after breakfast the following morning. Evidently we were doing them a favour as they had over booked, this may sound great but it was a real pain as we couldn't unpack our cases, and wasted a morning relocating. All rooms have a sea view, balcony air conditioning, and our 2 pushed together single beds were really comfortable. The bathrooms are good, toilet paper goes in a bin like 20 years ago, not the hotels fault. Other people have mentioned the bad shower design, but all you need to do is adjust the shower head to point down, then you won't get a wet floor.
Food was very hit and miss, breakfast on the whole was good, but the evening buffet was sometimes just edible, there could of been a bit more of a Greek influence in our opinion.
We decided to eat at the taverna next door for a few nights, to have something nicer to eat, and found it excellent. The hotel meltini taverna was ok, they gave you 20% discount but was still cheaper and tastier next door.
Beach is shingle and pebbles so I would strongly recommend sea shoes, and goggles as there is a few fish to see and the water is crystal clear and calm.
Its location is both good and bad depending on your view point, it takes 40 minutes to walk to the nearest shops, or 6 euros in a taxi.
The staff are extremely hard working and friendly, the only down side to this hotel is the manager, didn't have any personal issues with him ourselves, but he wasn't too friendly, he had all the staff wearing ear pieces and you could tell he had them run off their feet. If he ever saw us at next doors taverna it was quite obvious he told the staff to ask us why we had been to spend our money elsewhere. If we want to go out of the hotel , surely that's up to us. We found the drinks a little expensive, and judging by other people sitting on their balcony at night, so did they, therefor there was not much of an atmosphere in the bars at night, plus very little entertainment.
For some unknown reason you have to pay for the front row sunbeds on the beach, which nearly always remained empty, as the others were free. List of rules, include not being able to eat or drink anything not bought from the hotel. Also you cannot take anything out of the minibar in your room, to put your own drinks etc in, or you will be charged for everything you have taken out. We were also told that you couldn't buy a bottle of wine in the restaurant and take it to finish in one of the other bars.... why??? its the same hotel!!!
I think we would only book this hotel again if it was maybe a good late deal, but for us we would prefer to be nearer to the local town.

Room Tip: all rooms have sea views but the higher the better

We stayed for 2 weeks. We upgraded to a suite which was beautiful but it turned into a nightmare. Noise was horrendous as there seemed to be no noise insulation and we had a family of 5 next door. The children were allowed to run riot, we complained on numerous occasions but they didn't care.

The staff were pleasant and helpful especially Vicky from guest relations who helped me with food at meal times as I'm Coeliac.
There wasn't a lot of choice for me but there was always salad.
The hotel is out of the way so we hired a car for a number of days as the weather wasn't to good.
I wouldn't visit again as its to noisy and the parents from different countries let there children do what they want day and night.

Stayed: May 2017
