We loved our stay in this hotel because, although it's an all-in hotel with animation, aqua park and everything that comes with it, it's still a quite charming hotel and ditto experience. And this because of the beautiful setting, the architecture of the hotel domain, the quality of the all-in food and the extreme friendliness of the staff! This really is a hotel for all kind of tourist profiles.
We stayed in the 'cheapest' room because we think we do not need anything else in a warm climate but our room was excellent: very spacious, in a quiet area not too far from the main building which was handy in the mornings and the evening. The furniture is a little bit outdated but everything is very clean!
Take enough time to discover the whole hotel area with the different pools, sitting area's and the beach. Also do not hesitate to go for a walk outside the hotel: on the one side you'll discover small beautiful beaches and on the other side the small town of Panormos. But also, do not hesitate to discover the island with a rented car! There aren't many routes so it's hard to get lost and the nature and culture is great. We rented a car in front of the entrance of the aqua park and were very happy with the price we negotiated and the service.
And last but not least 3 small remarks but which we appreciated a lot: the security in the aqua park is top with save guards surveying the area and the people all the time. So after a couple of time our 13 year old daughter was allowed to go alone. The all-in buffets always give the possibility to eat healthy and with local products. The guests at the hotel come from all over Europe and not only from a few countries and mostly families with small or a little bit older children.
