Lets get the bad bits out of the way. Its not 5* like [--] advise but to be honest what it lacks in some areas it makes up in others.
The main lobby and lounge is dark and needs an upgrade but the terrace and taverna style eating area outside is just superb
I rate a hotel on the question.. Would I go back. Yes sure would in this case.
The views are great especially in the evening around sunset. It lives up to its name 'Panorama'.
I really loved the pool area. The water whilst salty like most hotels in the area was wonderful. Clean and refreshing and such a joy to swim and relax in. Loads of sunbeds always seemed enough for all.
The staff were absolutely friendly and genuine. The rooms clean and spacious, perhaps not the best choice of TV channels.. but who goes on holiday to such a great location to watch it!
There is a small beach in front of the hotel but not really suitable for swimming. Near by turn right at the hotel gates and 3 beaches are within easy walking distance or bus. The first is broad and my least favorite.. but move onto the next ones which are small coves with beautiful clear water and normal beach facilities. With a hire car then many others are in easy reach.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and I would recommend to others.. but as said it is not 5* but very good just the same.
