This is a gem of a hotel in Gouves central to all amenities, Hotel is family run and is a credit to the family, We stayed in the annex room 74 it was perfect pool side peaceful and a one minute walk across not busy road to main hotel. The food here is varied with lots of choice and tastes lovely. Kristoph and his team are top of their game. Our room was quite modern nice bathroom with full length walk in shower beds comfy and linen changed every couple of days. Cleaners bar and restaurant staff do the owners proud will definitely return to the hotel

Just spent 10 nights at this hotel the staff go above & beyond to make your stay special & the accommodation is lovely & immaculately clean - if you want somewhere quiet where you get to know your fellow guests this is the place to go, out of 10 nights we only had entertainment on 2 of them. The food is ok you always find something to eat but it’s never hot which is a big downfall the all inclusive drink is very limited and finishes at 11 o’clock - we met some lovely people & had a good time but as it’s end of season resort very quiet & weather changeable

Such a lovely little hotel!! Service was absolutely impeccable- everyone was so friendly and helpful and quick to take your drinks order!! The staff are really what makes the hotel so wonderful- I’d say it was some of the best service I’ve ever had! Food was really nice- the seafood night and the Italian night particularly stood out. Some of it could be slightly repetitive, but that wasn’t an issue for me, as I had some lovely Greek salad, pasta and fish pretty much every day! Options would be slightly more limited for vegetarians, particularly the themed dishes, but there were still always some options available. The room was lovely- very clean and bed was comfortable. We were very pleased to have a balcony with a sea view! The pool area was lovely and never too busy (possibly because we came at the end of September). We were always able to get loungers at any time of day and the pool was never crowded. The hotel was able to organise covid testing for us for our return flight to the UK- this cost €25 per person and someone came to the hotel to perform the test, emailing us the results a couple of hours later. Finally, the hotel is right by the beach!! So you could easily pop down for a swim in the sea after lunch and be back in time for 3pm ice cream at the hotel :) I’d give this place more than 5 stars if I could!!

Lovely hotel - the rooms are nice, the food is great and staff are super friendly. Poolside area is kept clean and guests can stay all day. About a 1 minute walk from a gorgeous beach area. Would definitely stay here again and thank you to all the wonderful staff!

We stayed at the Blue Aegean for 11 nights after reading previous reviews. We have to say, it didn’t disappoint. The staff were great, they couldn’t do enough for you. We liked the fact that it was small and friendly, with an emphasis on the latter. The room was great and cleaned daily (except Sundays). We were a little apprehensive about what the food would be like with it being all inclusive. We had no reason to be. The food was great, with lots of choice catering for all types. The Greek offerings were especially lovely. With just a very short stroll to the beach, the location is great. There is plenty of space around the pool and the whole hotel is spotless. We really couldn’t fault anything (apart from not being able to keep our room in on our departure day) overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, both for the facilities and the fantastic staff that help make your holiday an enjoyable one. Mark and Karen
