We spent a week at F Zeen at the beginning of July and had an absolutely wonderful time. It was our first visit & our first trip in 18months but was certainly worth all the anxiety inducing form filling & Covid testing needed to get there ( and back!). We would visit again without a moments hesitation. We stayed in a superior raw retreat with a stunning view of the sea, the grounds are beautiful, the food was delicious and we found all the staff courteous and helpful. I had probably the best spa treatment/massage ever. We thought the range of complimentary yoga/ body work out classes on offer was excellent & the option to be as active (or as lazy) as we wished was much appreciated by my partner & myself. My friends know that I have very high standards so when I describe somewhere as perfect in every way, they know it must be somewhere special

If you value service don’t go. Never been so badly treated in my life. I can tell from past reviews now that this hotel has serious management problems. I was talking to other guests at the beach who though the same. Zero attention to detail. Terrible manners, Effie and Kostas the managers were terribly rude, condescending and pretty much gaslighting us. You can tell by the responses to their negative reviews, how bad they handle situations. Defensive and not what you expect from a “good hotel” If you value service in this regard, pls stay away as is very under par. If you have a problem they will simply ignore it. Not take care of it and say their team has told them is has been fixed. Which is not and they’ll charge you for it. Scam all round. The staff at the restaurant were really nice, hope managers would Learn from them. Spa is underwhelming If you want an umbrella by the beach you have to go at 9 am latest, if not you will burn and be without any shade as they don’t have more. If you forget your towel they don’t have any by the beach or restaurant you have to go all the way up to your room. (Some are v far ) Food isn’t great Rooms weren’t properly cleaned Bad Amenities We booked a room w jacuzzi which had a leak which meant the floors where constantly wet and our floor inside would get wet too every time we would get in and out of the room, in addition it was ice cold, to heat it we had to ask reception to empty the whole thing (not environmentally friendly) and process took 2 hrs. They never told us that! First night we couldn’t use it no one knew how to warm it up, second night we had to do it over 2 hours and the following nights when we asked for it to be warm it was never done. The leak was never fixed and we had huge puddles of water outside our room. V dangerous for us to be walking around. All in all v stressful and disappointing stay. All problems are due to lack of good management and on top of all the disappointment to have a manager be so rude to the point we’re they said we won’t talk to you anymore and leave? Do look somewhere else, I wish I would’ve paid attention to the negative reviews, definitely regret staying there. Won’t be coming back.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed the service at the restaurant and as you mentioned to the reception on your check out your overall experience. Regarding towels, these are made available in each room and at reception on request. The hotel is on a public beach and also a turtle sanctuary therefore the number of sunbeds and umbrellas is limited by the state. We do also have three large pools with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for guests. The Jacuzzi was fully functional throughout your stay as explained to you by every member of staff you had dealings with, we have not had any issue with this equipment this season. As soon as you alerted us to a perceived issue with the jacuzzi a maintenance staff member was sent immediately to explain how to use it properly. We hope we might be able to restore your faith in us in the future!

We are just back from a fantastic week at F Zeen. A last minute decision in these challenging times for travel and one we would repeat in a heartbeat. Everything was perfect - non stop flight from the UK, 15 minute drive from the small but efficient airport, beautiful wellness resort where everything was so aesthetically pleasing to the eye, comfortable and stylish room (superior retreat category), delicious food served in two restaurants, absolutely charming service and a daily schedule of included activities including an outdoor cinema. Watching Mamma Mia with headphones on huge beanbags in the outdoor amphitheatre was memorable! Despite being adventurous travellers in normal times, we did not set foot outside the resort and loved every minute. There are quite a lot of steps in the resort so check that you are happy with the location of your room. We loved the feel and ethos of F Zeen and will definitely return, maybe even later this year!

Highly recommend FZeen for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. The resort got busy while we were there and had a little difficulty finding sunbeds and towels but the setting, interiors, landscaping and service are all great. Would definitely stay again. As it's on a hillside, be prepared to climb steps several times per day.

How good a place really is can also be determined as to how they deal with a situation meaning a v late postponement arises. In these so tricky changing times, especially for wondrous places like F Zeen it is so challenging. We all know that .They have been as special in handling this as they are are when visiting. Quality. Whilst our trip moves on to 2022 the magic and wonder of this place and all it stands for still amazes. It is a shining gem. 2020 and 2021 now both had to move but 2022 is set. I can’t think of a better place to wait and plan for. Best things always worth waiting for To the owners & team, thank you. M&C
