"Complete relaxation during our stay"

Rate:  5 Stars

Stayed 7 days in Grand Mediterraneo and everything was just amazing. The staff is superb and extremely friendly, facility is modern and in perfect shape, everything works well and the food is delicious. Sea view room is recommended.

"Wish I was there!"

Rate:  5 Stars

This hotel is fantastic, from the setting to the food and the amazing staff who really couldn`t do enough for you. It`s perhaps not for everyone, it is set on a mountain side so expect to walk up hills and steps to get around but for us this is what made the hotel. We found the place very quirky and not your usual run of the mill beach hotel.

We did hire a car from the airport and even in the dark the hotel was easy to find, car cost £150 for the week but a word do warning, ring the desk in the airport and make sure you have a new car, ours was dropping to bits and was from one of the major companies.

I would recommend the Veritgo Italian restaurant in the hotel, the setting is amazing and the food matches up, they don`t over fill the restaurant so the service is great.

Yes the drinks are expensive but you need to remember you are in a 5 star hotel in a country where prices have rocketed due to their economic problems and their VAT is 23%! The local wine is good and get to know the bar staff (tipping helps) and their measures are more than generous!

The rooms are amazing we had a sea view and were on level 3 which was great half way between the beach and the main building, we used the steps as our morning exercise, a little breathless we would reach the pool but the stunning views made it all worthwhile. We never had a problem getting a sun bed, we are early birds but noticed there were still some free all day long, albeit not right beside the pool.

A couple of niggles, the spa is terrible, size of a hotel suite and expensive, I went to ask about a treatment and the girls we clueless. My next one is being really picky but I would expect better in room toiletries in a 5 star hotel. Other than that fab!

Would we return, absolutely, in fact tomorrow would be fantastic, 37 degrees to torrential rain all in one day, get me back there now!

Room tip: I would recommend rooms in 200-300`s if your fit and don`t mind steps or hills, good views a...

"Lovely relaxing holiday"

Rate:  5 Stars

This hotel was perfect for a relaxing week in the sun. The hotel itself was secluded and in a beautiful setting and was extremely well maintained. The rooms were spacious, clean and chic with everything that you needed and more. The staff were friendly, especially in the restaurant where they couldn`t do more to help you. We splashed out and went for a meal in the Italian one night where we were waited on hand and foot - the food was absolutely gorgeous with large portions and the view was well worth it. We had a fabulous week but probably wouldn`t have wanted to go for longer as it was a little too remote and you would have wanted to find something more to do.

"OMG Amazeballs"

Rate:  5 Stars

Well, I think the title of this review sums up our experience!
Beautiful setting and yes, as the hotel descriptions all say it is hilly, however do not let this put you off.
We had a room, number 514, down near the beach and furthest away from the main hotel and this did not cause us any problem at all. We did our research and knew what to expect. We used the lift, which never caused us any problems and you have to expect a slight wait, its got a hill to climb, it won`t move fast and there is only one. We chose to use the stairs beside the lift to get to and from the pool, made us more hungry for breakfast and then the road in the evenings. Most nights when walking to dinner a golf buggy would pass and pick us up, but you do have the option to call reception and get one to come get you.
Food, fantastic. Of all the many hotels we have stayed in with buffets, this was far the best, just fantastic and all staff are soooooooooooooo friendly.
Pool, it does says you can`t reserve sunbeds, but so many people did, however you could still get one around 9ish and later if you choose the grass area just below the pool. We took to getting to the pool at 8am, having a nap on our sunbeds and going for breakfast at 9:30. The views are amazing.
There is a little shop in the hotel to pick up water and a little supermarket outside the entrance where we picked up cheap beer and wine for the room which we stored in our fridge.
If you are like us and always go 5 star, you will be used to 5 star prices for drinks and snacks at the bar. Just take extra cash with you if you like the induldge.
All I will say about Thursday evenings entertainment is OMG. Make sure you are around for the Gala Night.
I can`t comment on Corfu, we stayed at the hotel all week, why not, its fab. We visited the beach, where we took out a pedalo, a MUST, beautiful scenery and gorgeous water.
My partner celebrated his birthday on the day we arrived so I emailed the hotel, we had champagne and cake in the room which I requested and were courtesy of the hotel and as a surprise that just happened, they brought another bottle and an actual birthday cake to the table whilst we were tucking into our buffet. Embarrasing, but a wonderful surprise.
We had a truly amazing and relaxed time, so if you fancy it, book it and please don`t be put off its on a hill. ENJOY.

Room tip: If you don`t want to much of a climb, as for near the reception!

"Our honeymoon here"

Rate:  4 Stars

We were there on our honeymoon at the beginning of July. The Hotel is only for adult, so no disgusting screaming infants and children – WOW! We were lucky, we got some of the best Villa in the whole hotel. We had a large and deep private swimming pool and a large land around, we had great privacy and no neighbors, only swallows and lovebirds :-) The Villa is beautifully equipped, luxurious materials are used. We had a large dressing room and in bathroom for both of us own sink and the big mirrors, which appreciated mainly my husband ;-) The breakfast is rich, but in five-star hotels glass of sekt is on, which is not here. Staff was verry friendly for our stay, but we expected little warm welcome at our check-in (because honeymoon). And when my husband wanted for himself (only once per stay) at breakfast tee and later coffee, young trainee faced verry arrogant and asked "why, when you have tea" :-( Is one cup of coffee realy big problem?! Fortunately, it was only one reproof to staff. Buffet dinner was excellent and delicious, great selection. Very tasty healthy Greek starters. Greek wines you can choose, but world wines are overpriced, such as Moët Chandon. I was disappointed of the fitness centre, it is wooden hut which absolutely does not match five stars hotel. The machines are old and gym is full of insects. Sometimes lacked water, towels are not available. Horror. In other case, a very nice experience is a private dinner in the secret garden behind the restaurant Vertigo. Not cheap, but a beautiful view and delicious, tasty and creative food. For example, gorgeous carpaccio, which you woun´t get at the buffet. I must reproach is quantity of food, too big portions, eight-course menu is murderous. The hotel should more do against the mosquitos. Thirty mosquito-bites for first night make me unpleasant for whole stay. But despite this shortcomings we really enjoyed our honeymoon. Even in Greece, you can find really luxurious holiday. (I must say that such chaos, noise and confusion, what is at the Corfu airport, I don`t want to ever experience, but it is different story...).

"Great Honeymoon well worth getting a suite with pool!"

Rate:  5 Stars

Myself and my husband stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon in early June 2012. We had room 555, a suite with private pool. It was gorgeous, huge room, two bathrooms, walk in dressing room, lounge and bedroom. We even had our own garden! The views were amazing and the staff all lovely. A few timing issues with the buggy picking us up (not being lazy, we were at the bottom of the hotel!!) Other than this a brilliant hotel. Would only go back if we had another suite as we took advantage of the private pool and wouldnt really want to sunbathe next to the resteraunt outside the main building!

Room tip: Get a suite with private pool - well worth the extra!

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for the first 10 days in July. It was our best holiday yet! The stand out thing about this hotel is the staff, so helpful and friendly - really made you feel at home. The hotel manager was often present, and you could tell he really valued his team. We had a great room (in the 700s) as it was right next to the main restaurant/pool - no walking up stairs! Only slight negative is price of drinks in the bar - but I would expect this in any 5 star hotel.

I would definitely return to the Grand Mediterraneo as it is overall good value, relaxing and good fun!

"An Excellent Holiday - Spoilt by Loud Mouth Louts"

Rate:  5 Stars

We booked this hotel as part of a "Couples" Package holiday with Thomson however the term couple can also apply to a group of youg men as we were advised by the holiday rep. The hotel is really great, very clean and very well looked after, the staff we met were very polite and helpful. The first four days were just perfect, very quite and tranquil, just what we had expected from a couples only hotel. Out holiday was spoilt by the arrival of six young men, they were intent on spoiling the atmosphere of the pool area of the hotel, dis regarding all safety signs and carrying on like 12 year olds, this persisted for three days, in the end we left the poolside and returned to our room. On talking to our rep we were told that it was not a "couples" holiday it was in fact a "adults" holiday and these louts were in fact adults.

This is not the same as other operators where a couples holiday was in fact a couples holiday, what is to say that next week 30 louts are at the hotel !

Sorry Thomson, you let us down on this holiday and this will be considered when booking our October holiday.

Room tip: 500 series rooms or the 700 rooms, avoid having to use the cable car on the side of the mountain.

"Manage your expectations before you book"

Rate:  3 Stars

We can now totally understand the mixed reviews on tripadvisor (the overall grading people give doesn`t often match the negative comments). We stayed at the hotel for 1 week via Thomson on a half board basis, only arriving back home last Friday. The main issue seems to be the marketing of the hotel - it just isn`t a 5 star hotel. However if you are looking for a fairly smart functional hotel with mostly helpful staff then this one is perfectly ok.

If you are used to genuine 5 star standard, you are very likely to be disappointed. Having heard many of these conversations around the hotel over the last week, this seems to be at the root of the dissatisfied reviews. Guests that predominantly stayed in 3/4 star hotels previously were happy with the hotel, food and service. Those that usually went 5 star/boutique were disappointed. This is because:

The hotel grounds are not cleared as often as one might expect for used glasses, room service trays etc. As a result the same glasses can sit by the pool for days before a member of staff takes them away. Bags of rubbish and discarded room service trays are left in the walkways outside the rooms (which could be very unpleasant in such high temperatures - smelly rotting food with lots and lots of happy insects crawling all over them!).

The sunbeds are torture devices. They`re of the cheap metal and meshing variety and have no cushioning or support at all. 5 star?!

The hotel asks guests not to reserve sunbeds during the early mornings, however, plenty of inconsiderate people do exactly that, and the lack of staff presence around the pool means that this issue isn`t ever dealt with. We had to set our alarm for pre-7am every day just to ensure we could get a sunbed. This is NOT what most people with demanding jobs at home go on holiday for!! Yes you can hire a car/boat to escape the madness, but we booked this break with the sole purpose of relaxing and recharging as much as possible so didn`t want to do this.

The buffet, whilst having numerous options per day, is unfortunately the standard "all you can eat" buffet fare. It`s usually the same warm, overcooked, bland and tasteless dishes every night. We did however hear lots of people saying how great they thought the buffet was, so this is clearly a case of what you`re comparing it to! There were lots of vegetarian, as well as meat dishes and even things for a vegan to eat, so they do get a "A" for effort for this.

The bedrooms are clean and spacious and the beds firm but comfortable. The balconies are generous too, although they could be improved with the provision of sunbeds to get over the crowding around the pool. Watch out though - the showers flood the bathroom floor. We asked about this and it`s a design fault which happens in all the rooms, so get your used towels on the floor to soak up the excess and tread carefully!

If you`re booking through Thomson, be warned that the "Sea View" rooms aren`t frontal sea view rooms. Due to the design of the hotel, all rooms face towards the mountain, it`s just that some rooms can see the sea from the balcony to the side. We were in 309, which was apparently a full sea view room (that we`d paid an upgrade fee for) and found that the sea wasn`t visible from inside the room (the view is of the hotel opposite) and that a big tree was in the way of the side view, so very little sea was visible. We mentioned this to the hotel and they advised that lots of people complain as the tour operators give false information in their brochures - the hotel want everyone to know that they only have side sea view rooms!

The funicular worked well whilst we were there, but it is very slow and if you can face it, its much quicker to walk. However, it was in the 40`s whilst we were there so we often did wait rather than climb up the cliff to get to the pool. Unfortunately the path to the hotel from the beach is overgrown in places, so you do have to attempt it with an Indiana Jones attitude!

We were very surprised that there wasn`t a drinks service around the pool. It wasn`t really an issue, but again, something you`d expect from a 5 star hotel.

All in all, we had an ok stay. We certainly wouldn`t return, but we wouldn`t say it was awful either. There are some lovely staff members who really are wonderfully friendly. The hotel seems to be let down by the management who don`t ensure that some of the basics are attended to.

Room tip: Rooms in the main building are close to the pool and restaurants. The rooms above the main pool (the...

"Almost paradise"

Rate:  5 Stars

Just returned from a week in this hotel, everything superb. We had a room near reception with a sea view which I would recommend. The beach is pebbly so take some beach shoes for getting in and out of the sea. The lift to the beach was brilliant. We ate at George`s tavern on the beach twice, and the hotel beach restaurant ( superb) as we find the buffet restaurant a bit repetitive even though the choice was vast and of good quality. We also hired a car- pelekas just 5 km away is incredible - the drive down is a bit hairy but thoroughly worth it for this gorgeous sandy beach and shallow sea like `glass`. I wouldn`t hesitate to return here. My only gripe was smoking in the restaurant outside area but other than that a paradise and worth a visit very quiet and relaxing. Didn`t want to come home.

"Excellent Hotel"

Rate:  5 Stars

My husband and I have just returned from a week at this hotel and were very impressed, everyone was really friendly the only down side was the cost of the drinks everything else was perfect. If you and your spouse play golf this is definitely for you, the golf course is only 1km away. There`s not a lot going on in Ermones but if you want a peaceful relaxing holiday then you can`t go far wrong with this hotel. Yes, there is a lot of walking required and it is a steep climb but if you really don`t feel like any exertion one of the bell boys will pick you up in a buggy, but hey we were glad to burn off a few calories as the desert menu is amazing and just one desert is never enough!!! The view from the pool side is one of the best I have ever seen and whilst we usually stay in 4* hotels I have to say this is by far the best hotel in Europe we have stayed in, I noticed some reviews said that it wasn`t a 5* hotel but for the price and what you get I really don`t see how anyone could have any complaints. If in doubt go for it, you`ll be pleased you did :-)

"An absolutely stunning hotel, and a wonderful holiday"

Rate:  5 Stars

My partner and I stayed here in mid-May, and we had an absolutely amazing time here. There are so many positive things to say about this hotel, I don`t know where to start!
The location and hotel itself are absolutely beautiful. It`s a quiet little resort, and the hotel enjoys amazing views over the sea and mountain, both of which we could see from our room. The hotel pool has the best views of all, as it is basically at the top of the cliff looking down onto the bay, so you have amazing panoramic views, and you also have a great view of the 2 mountains that the hotel sits between. These mountains are covered with trees/ greenery, so they are very picturesque. The pool itself is great, it is not quite an infinity pool, but when you are in it, it does have an infinity effect because of the way the water goes from one pool into another, and you also have the view of the sea. There were loads of sunbeds, almost of all of which afforded the great views I have mentioned. The water is a little on the cool side, but to be fair I did travel in mid-May, so it will obviously get warmer as the season progresses, and it was still OK for a dip in May.

The hotel itself is made up of a main building at the top of the hill, which contains reception, the bar, a small shop and the main Medusa Restaurant, and the rooms themselves are in small blocks scattered down the hillside. We were in a room not too far down the hill, but if you were further down, the only thing I would say is that it is probably not ideal for people who aren`t able to easily manage hills, as it is quite steep. There is a cable car available, which runs right down to the beach and right up to the main hotel building, but this is quite slow and doesn`t have a huge capacity.

The rooms are fab - really modern and stylish decor, a great bathroom with a powerful shower. The balcony was also lovely with a great view, good balcony furniture, and very pleasant to spend some time relaxing on in the afternoon. There was a complimentary bottle of water on arrival. The only downside was you have to pay twenty euros to use the safe, which is quite annoying. Our safe was not working at first after we`d paid the fee, but we saw a member of hotel staff walk past our room and asked him for help. He got an engineer out to our room in 10 minutes, who fixed the safe straight away and also tried to improve our TV signal! Then when we bumped into the original guy we`d asked for help later in the day when we were at the bottom of the hill, he offered us a ride in his van back to the top of the hill to save us walking, so obviously the staff are quite helpful!

One of my favourite things about the hotel was the food, which was absolutely sublime. We were considering eating one night at the Italian a la carte restaurant (Vertigo), but in the end we didn`t go because the food in the main Medusa restaurant was so amazing. Breakfast was brilliant every day, there was something for absolutely every taste, from full cooked breakfast to fresh fruit, and everything else you can think of. Dinner was also wonderful - it is a buffet style meal, but that does not begin to do it justice. Absolutely anyone could find something to their taste, as every night there was such a wide range of high quality food. Vegetarians would be well-catered for, as there are proper veggie options every night, such as pies and quiches, as well as loads of fresh vegetables and things like ratatouille. Meat lovers would also be spoilt for choice, as every night there was most meats you can think of on offer, and a fish option too. The salads that we had as a starter every evening were also second to none - you won`t believe how good salad can be! Desserts I wasn`t too fussed about, but then I am not a dessert person, and there was a lot of choice.

The best night was our final night there, when they held Gala Night. This was when the food in Medusa was even better than usual! On arrival we received champagne and canapes, then there was extra-special food available, such as carpaccio (prepared "show cooking" style), and a big plate of 4 swordfish steaks! These were my favourite bits, but as usual, there was a huge amount of choice. Then afterwards in the bar there was more free champagne and free ice cream cake! Gala Night is the guests` opportunity to meet the hotel staff and show their appreciation, but it`s also just a special night where everyone dresses up and has a good time!

The resort of Ermones where the hotel is located is quite small, it`s mainly just this hotel and the beach with a couple of tavernas, so it`s a nice quiet, peaceful feel. One day we caught the bus to Corfu Town, which was a good day out. The bus goes from right outside the hotel into Corfu town, and you can also catch the same bus to Aqua Land (although we didn`t go there).

The hotel bar is a little on the expensive side - cocktails were 9.90 so we gave them a miss! But wine is reasonable, so that was OK! The entertainment was quite good - there is a resident duo who are quite enjoyable, and the evening of traditional Greek entertainment surprised me by how fun it was! I ended up dancing round the whole bar in a big line of people!

Overall, this was an absolutely stunning hotel, and a wonderful holiday.

Room tip: Try and get a room close to the main part of the hotel to avoid the steep hill.

"Lovely hotel but not quite a 5* review"

Rate:  4 Stars

i have just returned from a week stay from 18-24 June 2012.

Positives:
- Modern hotel with very friendly and capable staff, spotlessly clean, good facilities.
- For a buffet dinner, this is by far the best I have ever had with lots of choices that actually taste good! Not the usual slop you sometimes get. Very easy for me to eat even with my dairy allergy.
- Spacious room with a huge comfy bed, decent pillows, good shower, fridge. Had a partial sea view which was OK.
- Stunning views from the pool area and a pretty sunset.
- Nice touches added to the service - Complimentary glasses of sparkling wine at various times during the week! Other little extras make you realise this is a quality hotel, like watermelon served around the pool late afternoon.

Some negatives (although some are minor, it`s up to you whether it is important to you!)
- Cost of drinks. No free water with dinner - a bottle of still water will set you back 4 euros! You can`t buy a single glass of wine with dinner either nor bring in pre-purchased drinks.
- Not enough sunbeds and especially not enough umbrellas in the hotel areas.
- Although this is an adult only hotel, the loungers/umbrellas reserved for the hotel guests on the beach are used by people at the other few hotels in Ermones, including a few families during the week I was there. This made it hard to find a bed on the beach.
- The beach is very tough on your feet due to the shingle. It actually hurts to get out of the sea.
- As previously noted by other guests, do not go if you have problems with mobility. There is a lift, but although I was in a room that meant I could walk up to the main hotel area, if I was in the rooms at the bottom of the hill I may lose patience with the lift - too slow!
- Spa prices even more expensive than some good day spas in the UK. 45 euros for half hour treatments.

Other things to consider
- Ermones is very very quiet and isolated. Buses run to Corfu town only and the earliest bus is at 10am, so you can;t make an early start. Buses out to other places will probably mean a wait of a few hours for connections to other parts of the island. So basically, you need a hire car. (100 euros for 2 days apparently).
- A stroll along the beach will take you just 2 minutes - it is very small!
- Take tea/coffee with you as it is not provided although kettle/cups are.
- This is definitely a hotel for couples!
- Safety deposit box not included - 20 euros extra for a week.
- You don`t need to take a beach towel as large beach towels are provided and you can change them twice in a week. Very handy :-)

Overall this is a great hotel, despite the list of negatives! All the other positive reviews are justified and if you pick this hotel you are unliekly to be disappointed.

Seven days in this fabulous hotel was sheer bliss. Made very welcome from the moment we arrived. Had a hiccup early on when the air conditioning in our initial room broke down but the every alert reception moved quickly and offered us anther room,(458) with an infinity pool! It was superb.
The staff, at all levels, were first class and the quality of the food for those like us on half board was of a very high quality.
This was our first visit to Corfu and we will definitely consider a return to the Grand Mediterraneo. In terms of value for money, coupled with a caring staff, it will be hard to beat.

Excellent hotel. Wonderful rooms, excellent choice of food (labeled gluten free which was excellent for my partner) pool and staff. The Wifi is free and the reception was excellent even by the pool, i was able to listen to absolute radio free all day.
The bottles of wine cost about £20 so about the same as England unless you are a Weatherspoon customer, but this is a 5 star hotel.
Cold bottled water is e1.80 at the bar so is relatively cheap.
The hotel is on a hill, but anyone who is of average fitness will be able to walk up to the hotel each day. I am 46 & had no problems.
Nikos the waiter was wonderful but Laura the rep was like a spoilt brat when the staff had put out blue candle holders instead of black ones for the black & white night! The hotel staff are wonderful & should not be treated so badly by an English rep.

"Wonderful Golden Wedding Anniversary Celebration"

Rate:  5 Stars

We have just returned from a 10-day holiday. Our overwhelming memories are of the genuine friendliness of all the staff; the lovely atmosphere in the hotel; and the glorious views.

Although the hotel is quite isolated, we were never bored. There was always plenty to do, including trips to the honey farm and winery; friendly competitions with prizes of delicious cocktails; and a very convenient local bus trip to Corfu Town.

We enjoyed the evening entertainment on the terrace and particularly liked the resident duo, Cheryl and Nat.

The wasps were no trouble whatsoever but we do understand that they will appear later.

Contrary to our expectations from other comments, the funicular was very modern and extremely useful. We were in the main building but occasionally enjoyed the wonderful service of a buggy ride up and down the hill!

This was an unforgettable holiday and we hope to return.

Room tip: Choose a room in the main building for convenience.

"Excellent hotel, service and food."

Rate:  4 Stars

Stayed for a week in late June 2012. We were looking for a good quality adults only hotel for a relaxing, quiet holiday. Excellent hotel and service. Staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient, especially the waitresses and Erica the `animator`. They were a real credit to the hotel. We enjoyed Erica`s quizzes each night. The food was excellent - we are vegetarian and were never short of choice. There was sometimes a short wait for a table - but Erica would greet you for a chat and glass of bubbly. The evening entertainment was good, especially Encore and a 70`s motown night. Nice easy listening with a bit of dancing from time to time. Room and view very nice. Standard of cleaning not so good - not a problem, but not as good as we have experience elsewhere. Our room was near the bottom of the complex and it was a long, very steep walk to reception. We are both fit and regular gym goers, but that walk in the heat meant being a little sweaty when arriving for dinner. Although, to be fair, golf buggys and the funicular lift were available (we only used the lift once as it was very slow and hot). It was nice walking back after dinner though. The gym was disappointing - one each of the two treadmills and rowing machines were broken. The beach was also disappointing - but there were lots of other options within short drive.
We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We would recommend the hotel if you are looking for a good quality hotel in a nice location with excellent food and service.

"Great Hotel"

Rate:  5 Stars

This is a perfect hotel for a relaxing break. The rooms are very comfortable and I would say they all can see the sea!. Perfect no children and the pool area is very chilled. Hotel is surrounded by beautiful beaches and coves if you hire a car or moped as we did (can be done either in hotel or at entrance. The food is excellent for buffet style and all the staff are extremely pleasant and accommodating. Drinks are not expensive for the quality of the hotel and service. 14 Euro for a bottle of very pleasant wine. Perhaps some people used to naff all inclusive. Excellent value.
The hill keeps you fit but thats the price you pay for the views.

Room tip: We hired a moped to take us up and down to the room as we stayed at the bottom. The hotel is defina...

"Peaceful"

Rate:  4 Stars

Just returned after 14 days here. Absolutely 1st class hotel, all staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We were in room 425 right by entrance to complex, it was a LONG walk up to main area, pool, bars, restaurant etc but you don`t have to walk it, u can get the lift or phone 0 and mikey or one of his team will pick u up, with a smile! Pool towels available foc but can only be changed 3 times a week. Sunloungers a problem, but we went to grass area overlooking sea at about 08.45 each day and could always get a bed. They are not crowded in. But be aware they aren`t very comfortable! Drinks are a tad expensive but you are on holiday and the ambiance and comfort and entertainment out weigh the charges. Drinks can be charged to your room and you can pay when you check out. The service is slow though so order your drink at least 10 mins before you want it!! Men HAVE to wear long trousers to dinner, found this very dated, a man can look equally smart in smart casual shorts or cropped trousers and feel more comfortable, after all they are on holiday! The beach was awful shingle and very painful to walk on. All in all just pointing out gripes but my holiday was wonderful, relaxed and carefree. Atlantica chain cannot be faulted. Special mention to Vika and Ira at poolbar says so happy and friendly and ways remembered our straw. Erica was lovely and bubbly, an asset to the hotel.
