    When we arrived, we got an non-renovated room which was not worth the money. After a good chat with the general manager, we got another room which was very nice and worth the price. The hotel is in a renovation phase of all old rooms.

    Lovely stay!

    Woww! Overall the whole experience was amazing, this hotel deserves much more than it ranked! The facility was beautiful, the views are breathtaking, the location is very good. The architecture and design is a whole new experience in itself. It's very very clean and comfortable, the bed was dreamy. A few small things you should be aware of: If you are expecting a "5-star" service, this may not be the place. It didn't really bother us, but something to be aware of. Staff is not as welcoming (mostly in the reception), but definitely did their job. Staff didn't go the extra mile as expected in these levels and costs. Additionally, in case you are taking breakfast and dinner, expect to have more or less the same food every day. Other than that we really really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it!

    Incredibly beautiful resort serounded by the ocean. Lots of secluded areas with lounge chairs to relax by the water. The staff is beyond amazing - always smiling and laughing with the guests. My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon, and we couldn't have found a better place to relax after the stress of the wedding. The staff even surprised us with a bottle of Prosecco and an arrangement of fresh fruit when we arrived in our room. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know.

    Five stars no more like 3.75

    Overall it was fine but for a five star hotel many things were poor for example no water to drink was provided in the room.I reported that the telephone did not work no one came to sort it.The kettle did not work and it was reported and eventually fixed .Water took a long time to drain from wash basin. The. TV had many German channels and only one English.Not at all what the case should be when selling a 5star image.Five

    Amazing site, stunning views, wonderful location. Very clean, staff very professional and helpful. On those points this place is really a palace. Very silent too. Unfortunately the food is far from being at the same level. Enjoy a wonderful stay in this palace and eat at any Greek caverne outside in town or in the island, even breakfast (more authentic, tastier and cheaper).
