Last minute booking = again!
Pleasantly surprised by the welcome from the First Choice lady, Stacey, who contrary to a previous review was extremely helpful and efficient.
We had a 2nd floor room with beach view (the speed of the lift was as laid-back as the Greeks!). The view was superb - wonderful sunrise and a mill-pond calm sea.
Our room was the usual lay out, twin beds, shower/bathroom and balcony with wardrobe, chest of drawers, fridge and TV. Air con not included in All Inclusive - available at 5 Euros a day - worth getting I think.
The weather was good, getting hotter each day.
Pool area very nice, seemed well maintained. Plenty of sun loungers there and on sun terrace.
Beach was quite busy but again always seemed to be loungers and sunshades available(6 Euros a day for 2).
The sea was wonderfully crystal clear; fish could be seen swimming round your feet. Very safe bathing too.
The bar is next to the beach, in a covered area which includes the evening entertainment area and leads to the restaurant.
The food was buffet, a different theme each night and was passable, all well cooked but not always to our taste so as a result we ate out on 3 occasions.
The walk into town took about 10 minutes - but be warned, especially if you have small children - you take your life in your hands when trying to cross the road. The town is busy and colourful with the usual mix of restaurants and bars. I would recommend Georgios and Micriacropoli for a pleasant evening meal.
Now to a couple of negatives: Not enough toilets, too far from the bar. The lobby bar never opened once - it would have been nice to have a change of scenery or to sit there in the evening if the entertainment wasn't for you.
And - in the literature it states that for All Inclusive guests the bar was open until midnight - this never happens. The bar shut at 23.00 each night (despite our holiday friend Julie trying to convince the bar staff that their clock was wrong so she could get a last brandy - almost had her head chopped off by the shutter coming down!!!!)
Just a quick mention to the Entertainment team -thank you - brilliant!!! and the the bar staff 'Tom Cruise', 'Bletchley' and James (loved the Michael Jackson impersonation)
All in all I had a lovely, relaxing holiday and met some really nice people.
