The hotel exceeded my expectations. I visited with my wife and friends at the beginning of October and was immediately impressed by the lobby. The porter took our bags to our rooms where 2 plates of sandwiches and crisps were waiting for us because of our late arrival. After a quick refresh we went to the clubroom and enjoyed the...

Really enjoyed our holiday. The hotel staff are very friendly and work very hard, the hotel is kept very clean and the towels and sheets changed regularly. The food was delicious and great variety, particularly enjoyed the pancakes. The location is excellent close to the Lake, there is a pebble beach opposite and a sandy beach further down the road....

The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a room with a sea view which we paid extra for. It was spacious and comfortable. Although there are no tea and coffee making facilities (which is typical of most Greek hotels) they did provide a free bottle of water every day. We were on the 4th floor which did get...

The hotel offered the service you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. There is a wide selection of food from the buffet to suit all tastes. A room with a sea view is an absolute must, as the view at the back of the hotel will disappoint. The town...

This Hotel is in an excellent position on the sea front and within easy reach of the town. It has a pebbly beach virtually opposite the front door but if you want a really nice beach we recommend the municipal beach which can be reached by turning left out of the main door and it's then a short walk from...

We were on the 7th floor, with great views, we found our room basic but spotless. The food was good, a little repetitive, but once we found the pool bar, it gave that extra selection. Free WiFi was good, I didn't like the hair dryer at all, the shower was brilliant, not my kind of beach, but there was plenty...
