Very good…

I thought that the hotel was very good. The transfer from the airport went smoothly and we were provided with water for the journey. On arrival, the staff at the hotel were very welcoming. As we had arrived late, they had left a cold platter in our room and a bottle of wine, which was a lovely touch.
The standard of cleanliness was very high. We were pleased with our room which looked out onto one of the swimming pools.
Breakfast was excellent, although the Poseidon restaurant seemed extremely busy and full of very young children which was not enjoyable. As our youngest son was eleven, we were unable to eat in the Veranda restaurant (minimum age requirement of 12) and so booked into the Grill from the second day. This was lovely.
I enjoyed the choice of restaurants in the hotel and particularly in the Marina area. We were on half board and ate in a different restaurant each night. I had not appreciated before we went, that half board constituted a contribution only in most of the restaurants on the dine around option (possibly an oversight on my part).The food was of a very good standard, but I felt that the additional cost over and above the half board allowance was relatively high.
The pool areas were lovely with plenty of sun-loungers and parasols. The views from the beach were beautiful. We used the tennis courts and hired bikes – all of which was great.
In summary: we enjoyed the hotel and the resort with the Marina area, the staff were all excellent and the scenery was lovely. The only slightly negative comment from our perspective was that it was extremely popular with families with children under the age of 5 (ours were 13 and 11 and there appeared to be very few of this age range or higher). However, once we had worked out the best place to eat breakfast, this was only really an issue when we had bad weather one day and were forced inside into the lounge areas.
Finally, I was very impressed with the Travelbeam service. Sophie was very helpful and I have since booked a second holiday through her for next year.
