You know when you return to a place you fell in love with first time round? So often the experience fails to match the memories of that first time - everything was new and different, everyone tried so hard to impress and you had a bunch of new photos to show your friends. Giving it a superlative review when you are back home was easy.
Going to the same place (and the same room) second year in a row was always going to be risky. Well as you can tell from the title of my review, Rocabella has lost none of its magic! Alan, IMO one of best GMs in the business, has retained all of his energetic, friendly, knowledgeable, customer-service obsessed staff. I could go on but you get the idea. One simple example: when you need recommendations for new restaurants, beach tavernas, bars or beaches ANY one of the staff is happy to share their personal recommendations - all of them good and some of them definitely off the beaten path.
The property has retained everything we loved first time round: bountiful buffet breakfast, pillow menu, turndown service with scented aromatherapy candles, luxury linens, and I am guessing a new coat of white paint. The place was gleaming!
This year we were encouraged to eat at Raza the resort restaurant, which is something we don't normally do. Well we are so glad we did the setting was lovely and the menu was more Greek fusion (which worried me a little) but was truly delicious.
Rocabella - worth every penny! Now starting to save all of them to return for a 3rd year.
