6/10 Good

The hotel was mainly empty, but they gave us a place with the smallest balcony that really could fit only one comfortably, and I had paid extra for upgraded panoramic view. There were columns obstructing view. They had a couple espresso pods when we arrived, and when I asked why we didnt get more, I was told we had to pay for more. The clothes hanger was broken. But the breakfast was decent, and the view was really nice.

Our stay was amazing, the hotel is conveniently located to multiple tourist sites. Plus it’s only a 10 minute walk down to the seaside village.

amazing holiday
We spent a week at Pela Mare and had a fantastic stay !!! Antonis and his staff could not have offered better customer service and were there to answer every question and help where needed. Gorgios was extremely helpful and welcoming, he always greeted us with a smile! He also made sure we had breakfast to take with us early on our day trip. Ilias made us amazing drinks at the bar and had top notch service. We would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing and beautiful holiday :)

Fantastic hotel with amazing staff
Fantastic, comfortable accomodation with excellent staff who made our stay enjoyable. Buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied daily with hot and cold options. The views from the hotel were stunning. The pool was clean and inviting and there was always sunloungers available. Food a d drink was reasonably priced and very good, particularly the cocktails.
