Had a great stay at Grand Bay Beach Resort last summer. Had an all inclusive stay. The bar tender made us personal cocktails, loved it. Great facilities. Clean room, good service, nice bathroom. The food was delicious. The bar in the pool is awesome! Live Greek music was not our thing but it was fun to watch during dinner.

This was our honeymoon and the hotel were not told this as we booked the hotel ourselves. We have been treated like royalty. The staff are amazing and when we mentioned why we were here we were treated even better with small gestures to make our stay even more pleasurable. Hotel is immaculate,food a good standard,would definitely come again.
