Reasons for trip


We stayed at this hotel with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren in 2012, and liked it so much that we decided on a return visit this year. We weren't disappointed. I should stress that this is not a good location for those who have mobility problems, as there are lots of steps and stairs and the access to the beach is very steep. However, reasonably fit and mobile guests shouldn't have any trouble. The food was excellent, with an amazing array of choices at breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had to be really disciplined to avoid coming back a couple of stone heavier! We'd requested a room with a double bed (described by one of the receptionists as "a French bed") but were initially allocated a twin-bedded room – this was changed without any fuss, and the room was very nice. We had a sea view, which is definitely recommended, and as we were west-facing we enjoyed fantastic sunsets every evening. The entertainment was mainly for younger people, and we found it far too loud for our taste, but the animateurs did put on a Greek night one evening on the terrace outside the restaurant which was superb, featuring local musicians and dancers. We enjoyed fantastic weather, and spent nearly all day on the beach every day. The hotel provided free sunbeds and parasols on the beach, which was a very useful addition since last year. The water was just about warm enough still to swim, although we were a little disappointed that the kiosk where we'd hired kayaks last year had already closed for the season. There is a large pool, but we didn't use it as we preferred to swim in the sea, which was actually warmer than the pool. The animateurs laid on exercise sessions on the beach (stretching, Pilates) as well as organising beach volleyball and petanque. We'd arranged our own air travel, via easyJet, and transfers (although next time I think we might opt for a taxi from and to the airport, to avoid the rather prolonged tour of the island in a minibus, dropping off passengers at several different hotels), and booked direct with the hotel, after an earlier booking through an agency fell through when they went into administration(!). The hotel cost 700 Euros for the two of us, so 100 Euros a night, which we thought was good value given that it was all-inclusive. We'd certainly go back again, the staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.
