We came for a short break away by the beach and for us it was perfect. We stayed for about a week and only went into the city on one day, the rest of the time we spent between the hotel pools and the small beach at the bottom of the hill. I'd go as far to say that it was almost a private beach and there are no other hotels that are in easy reach. The sea was beautiful with loads of colorful fish swimming around your feet. Be careful of jelly fish however, my boyfriend and I swam far from the shore and he got stung! but it was only mild and it didn't ruin our stay, there were loads of people close by that gave him cream etc. The entertainment was fine, it's just one man doing it and he is great, very friendly and chatty with the guests, organizing a different activity every evening. The food was wonderful! So much to choose from! You can have typical Greek dishes or just your usual western food if you don't fancy it. I will definitely go back to this hotel again.

Really enjoyable holiday staff very friendly and very accomodating, rooms nice and clean though not very big, the views however are absolutly phenominol you can see right across the ocean and see dolphins swimming its beautiful! The hotel is very isolated however this wasnt a problem for us as we only wanted a sunbathing holiday, the only thing that annoyed us was that they had a "greek night" which you had to pay extra for as it was included in your all inclusive and if you didnt pay you wernt allowed to drink outside that night you had to remain inside! Also the animation during the day was abit pants but at night it was pretty good with various acts brought in. The food was good however there was lots and lots of salads id have preferred more meatier dishes and few more english options of food but that aside i definatly did not starve! Overall id recommend this hotel to stay at if you are just after a nice relaxing holiday. 6/10

Went to the Blue Bay hotel in October with my boyfriend as a last minute booking, and this hotel certainly didn't disappoint us. We knew drinks were limited on the all inclusive, people who complain about this I would say you knew this before you booked the hotel? If not do your research! Snacks were provided throughout the day, plenty of choice in the main restaurant very tasty food. Francis the bar man did the best cocktails too! Nice to see someone so passionate about their job. Shops all along the beach where you can buy water from as it's not included on the all inclusive (which is bizzare but we didn't complain as we already knew before we booked). Hotel was spotless and well looked after, staff were lovely except he restaurants manager who couldn't crack a smile! Dimos the personnel manager went out of his way for us and looked after the cats which I liked. Was a white cat with a bad leg, not sure what had happened to him which I think needs treating maybe. Got to the hotel and found out we were upgraded to a family room for no apparent reason, which we didn't complain about! The room had the sea views we had paid for too, and even had sun loungers on the balcony. Beach is a 5 minute walk down the hill, but a 10 min walk back. Lovely and clean, some very nice taverns down there which serve the freshest sea food I've tasted. The sea is crystal clear and was warm once you got used to if even in October. Overall this was a perfect holiday, views are surreal all around the complex and there is the big town of Ayia Pelagia where there's probably more to do. If you want a relaxing holiday then this is the place, would definitely return and would recommend too! Thank you Blue Bay for a great holiday!!!

If you don't expect to much it's ok. Drinks are very restricted if on a all inclusive package. It's a poor location for local transport, so it's best to hire a car to get around ... Best done in UK as it's cheaper.
