This was our first visit to this hotel and it won't be our last. We reluctantly left room 696 last Wednesday and can't wait to go back. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was a lovely surprise and the room, balcony and view were outstanding. The balcony was huge and needless to say we spent a lot of time there looking at the beautiful views of sea and mountains.|We were on the Asterias side of this massive hotel, which suited us as this side appeared to be more geared up to adults and peaceful relaxation with one of the most stunning infinity pools I have seen.|The Apollonian side seems to be more suitable for families.|The hotel is near beautiful Xi beach and this peninsula is far more quiet than resorts like Lassi and Skala.|I had a fantastic massage, manicure, and pedicure at the Spa courtesy of Nicole.|The only negatives were the large restaurant was more of a cafeteria, where some of the staff did not want to engage, breakfast pastries were frequently burnt and there were a lack of sauces to go with meals. These are all easily remedied because the food is tasty especially the variety of meats, salads and beautiful pizzas. If they dimmed the lights a bit in the evening, it would make all the difference. On the last day it was very stormy, as I got to the restaurant a storm started , meaning the restaurant was very quiet at first as people stayed out of the storm, which was great!|After an appeal, we were allowed to stay in our room on the last day because of a late flight. This made a huge difference and we were completely relaxed for our flight especially after my nap on that lovely balcony that afternoon.|We recommend hiring a car from the airport, as we managed to catch the last ferry to Lixouri but the coach transfer went all the way round by road. We always use Pefannis, no messing around, no hidden extras and very reasonable.|There are an abundance of quiet secluded beaches, beautiful tavernas on this much quieter side of the island to explore. Just get your Pefannis map out and follow the roads.|We managed to do the last sunset cruise of the season. Hint, go straight to Dreamy Cruises, don't go via TUI, etc, as it is cheaper. Choose Queen Bee everytime though for a day cruise.|The hotel is beautifully landscaped and must be a riot of colour in May when all the plants are in bloom.|I recommend this hotel wholeheartedly and would like to thank the hotel for looking after us so well, we had a wonderful relaxing week and can't wait for more.|
