We had a lovely holiday here in mid-May booked as a package holiday via Olympic Holidays. This was surprisingly less expensive than doing flight and hotel direct. The hotel is all marble and beige concrete, quite austere and clinical but delivers comfort in abundance. We were in a garden deluxe room on the annexe side which we thought was better...

The Avra Imperial is highly suitable for adults and children. Beautiful pools, including indoor spa pool. Children's entertainment excellent. Having said that, because of its size the children we did not find the large number of children overwhelming. Would definitely visit again
