This is a lovely hotel. High standard of cleanliness. Staff really friendly. Just a few pointers I would like to update from the reviews we read before booking. It is a good 25 minute walk from the hotel to the town/ beach - takes about 15 minutes to hit the first bar in town - there is nothing really before that. Some of the walk is on road (no pavement) so just be cautious with children - nice stroll out of an evening and you can always get a horse and carriage back for 10 euro or a taxi for c.6 euro if coming back late. . Town is busy with lots of bars restaurants to visit and the beach is really lovely - sandy and no pebbles and shallow and warm (we went near the pheonix beach hotel and miras hotel). Hire two beds and umbrella for the day for 6 euro. The hotel rooms are fab - massive and cleaned every day (we had three beds and a kitchenette and fridge) - most rooms overlook the pools. The only downside is the drink - the wine was like petrol (everyone we spoke to agreed) but you can go out and buy your own and you are ok to drink it in the restaurant or bar - no cocktails - you have to pay for these (4 euro). Beer ok and goes down nicely at the pool in the heat but you certainly wont get drunk on it. The one Themed night they did was very enjoyable - greek night and lovely atmosphere. icecream for kids in pots all day (choc, vanilla, strawberry)- no cava or high quality drinks and limited choices. There are 2 pools - one mostly shaded by the bar and one in the sun over the road so you get the best of both. The animation team are nice boys and did their best but entertainment fairly mediocre (bingo, catch the stick, darts, Mr & Mrs, find as many t shirts as you can etc etc). Food was faultless but I had read many reports about variation but we didnt find this - breakfast was really good and lunch and dinner fairly similar each day. Typical day would be breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon mini sausage, yogurt, fruit bread (everything you would want). Lunch - salad bar, pie, meat, veg, pasta, sauce, desert. Dinner similar to lunch but food quality really nice we just personally wanted more greek food and more variation so ate out most nights. Town not expensive - meal for 3 with drinks and starters, main, desert c. 40 euro. Aircon on for limited timings (10-12 2-4 and 11-2 I think) but if you pay 20 euro you can have it on all day for the week. best 20 we spent. kept the room lovely and cool. as I say nice hotel but wanted to put those few pointers down - nice restaurants pieros and sweet revenge. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel to town all day - really nice chap and you just ask at reception she will tell you the times he will be leaving. no charge. He picks up too and tells you when dropping off what time he will be back a that point. free wifi too - really nice place nearest supermarket 10 minutes - everything is to the left of the hotel - nothing if you walk to the right. Hope this helps anyone looking at it - certainly try it.
