This resort, while having amazing views and excellent communal/pool areas, is definitely not a 4 star resort. We arrived and there was no one to greet us and we had to wait in the lobby for a long time. Our room was in an underground area away from the rest of the hotel, which was extremely disappointing as we had...

The hotel is beautifully located on a peninsula with direct and private access to the beach/sea zone, 2 swimming-pool zones, tennis courts... For sure, some time ago this hotel could have been one of the best of the zone, if not the best one, but some others around are more modern and better than this one, although for sure, more...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and did a bit of research prior to booking. However several things were missing of a 4 star hotel. Rooms were dull and seriously needed refurbishment. Bathroom was clean but is more of a 2 star quality at best. Towels were not fresh and were starting to go a bit crunchy. No...

Everything in this place is recommendable! From the moment of arrival until our departure it was a great experience. The organisation and architecture of the hotel is such, that at no time I felt overwhelmed. It feels like a large family. The staff is exceptional! - it's willingness to help, to listen, to do something is just above the norm!...

We stayed at the Peninsula in July for two weeks. The location of the hotel is absolutely stunning. The hotel itself is a nice and very clean. The staff are very friendly and the maid service is exceptional. The food is plentiful and varied, the only thing that isn't so good is the amount of flies that fly and land...

The Peninsula hotel is set in a quiet beautiful location with exceptional views. With extremely hard working friendly staff - in particular Amii and Pavlos in the main bar who were responsible for a couple of my husbands hanovers and Maria and Manos in the snack bar who couldn't do enough for you.
