This hotel is design to impress. And impress it did. Five stars. Our stay was perfect. Staffs get 10 out of 10. We need to write more? Yeah! food was perfect, perfectly cooked. Rooms are well appointed.
We stayed for a week, half board in a superior room (upgraded from our initial booking) in August 2020. From the moment we were greeted with welcome drinks we knew we had chosen the right hotel for our trip. The hotel is luxurious, spotless and decorated really nicely. The rooms were small but well equipped with lovely cosmetics, face masks, hand sanitiser, bathrobes, coffee machine etc. A couple of key points:
1) Food was fantastic, from the large selection at breakfast and dinner to the food served at the beach and the bar. The quality was excellent across the board and the food at the beach was reasonably priced!
2) Very good drinks at good prices. Including a good variety of cocktails and ice cold beer.
3) Our favourite part of the hotel was the beach, it was very well kept and they always provide you with water on arrival. Special shout out to Mary who served us every day with a smile!
4) My wife had a massage and she loved the spa.
5) The pool area was really nice, extremely comfortable sunbeds.
The only negative was our 'breakfast basket' which we took when we were on a trip to Samaria Gorge. This was really disappointing and at the standard of a 2 star hotel. The sandwich provided was two slices of toast bread with a single slice of plastic cheese, which was much smaller than the bread without any butter or salad. We told the assistant manager about this but there was no effort to make amends, despite emailing a picture to them. I'd expect better from a 5 star hotel, however, this doesn't impact the overall rating and our stay.
The hotel is very nice, clean, near on the beach. The staff very friendly, the food is very good...the only minus was the fact that we did not know that for dinner we need to pay for the drinks, including the water. Overall...very nice, I recommend.
