10/10 Exceptional

The resort is fantastic. The staff is amazing. They are very caring and attentive to your needs. There iare two beaches within walking distance and the hotel does have its own private cement platform deck by the deep end of the water on their premises. Food: The spread of food is amazing even for a vegetarian. I had no problems finding food that i enjoyed. The hotel does a great job of making sure all guest needs are met. Entertainment: The hotel does have entertainment every night and they do a pretty good job of getting you involved. Warning: Baggage appears to be delayed on a daily basis. We had our baggage delayed and had to wait two full days before they arrived. Carry-on was taken from us at Athens due to low space inside the plane. Advice: Walk with a personal bag they will let you board with it on the plane. So pack clothes and other necessary for two days because the odds of you getting your baggage are very low. Some rooms don't have phones. But after reaching out to the management. We where able to get a phone. This might come in handy if you have to be making local calls to the airport about your baggage. Must do: There's a diving center called stay wet by the public beach. This is a must do on your bucket list. Weather your first time swimmer or and advance swimmer take advantage of this experience. The staff is amazing and take their time with you. In the water they go at your pace and take away all fears of diving. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous location in Agio Pelagia. It’s got breathtaking views, secluded, but not isolated, and a white and stone design. The staff are genuinely kind, responsive, and gave us a true 5 star experience.
