I usually travel each week with work, staying in different hotels. This hotel is one of the best holiday hotels I’ve ever stayed in globally.
The complex itself is immaculately kept groomed and clean, the gardeners and cleaners clearly keep on top of the extensive grounds, taking pride in what they do. The design of the complex works well, you are never too far from one of the large pools or the beach. The swimming pools are spotless, every other umbrella was blocked out to allow for social distancing around the pools. Lifeguards were attentive and great if you had little ones with you. The beach always had a sea breeze, so this was much cooler to sit at. The sea was beautifully warm (warmer than pools). If you have sea shoes I would recommend bringing them due to the stones.
I had a garden view room with a terrace on the ground floor. I rarely stay on ground floors, but really enjoyed having the large terrace you could just walk out on. The room was spacious, much more modern than other 4* Greek hotels I’ve stayed in, with a free safe, and mini bar full of water which was restocked throughout the week. Due to covid the room was only cleaned every 2 days, but this wasn’t a issue.
I didn’t eat in the A La Carte restaurants, so cannot comment on these, however the buffets were of excellent standard. All the food was freshly cooked, warm and served for you by the staff. The food was some of the best I’ve had in this style of hotel, the chefs do an amazing job with such a huge variation of food. The resort only seemed half full, which resulted in no queuing to be served - if busier I would expect to queue. The serving staff were always very generous with their portions so if you only want a small amount, make sure you tell them. The snack bar served freshly cooked pizzas and gyros pretty much all day, the pizza was of the standard you would get in Italy! It’s worth booking the beach bbq for one night, tasty Bbq food but much less variety compared to the main restaurant.
The bars were never really that busy, so you rarely had to queue. All locally branded spirits, wine and beer. The quality was not great if you are into decent wine and g+ts etc. At times I did struggle to drink the alcohol and most did not seem that alcoholic or strong. There’s a bar 5 min walk to the right as you leave the hotel which serves a real g+t, you will soon see the alcohol difference. But considering what I paid, the drinks did not really affect my view of the hotel. If I had paid full price than this review would be very different.
All staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Ardian in the main restaurant who worked outside on the terrace - he always cleaned and set a table up for us when there were none available. The Pink Wave animation team were very good, particularly Civi and Pavel. Civi was the backbone to the team, with his crazy but fun personality echoing all around the complex when he was about. It was good to see the general manager walking around each day, he seemed very hands on with his team.
The local buses are very good, and only a couple of euros. The bus stop is outside the hotel where you can easily get to Lindos for 1.80e. Lindos is a must, good to do just before sunset and stay until it’s dark. Lindos at night is magical. Lardos is also worth a visit at night for a drink in the square or a meal in one of the local restaurants, 8e in a taxi and only 5 min drive.
I am already thinking of coming back in October, this hotel is a hidden gem which are hard to find. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
