So as you read this, please remember it is meant to be all inclusive. We booked out holiday through Thomas Cook with Olympic Holidays. When we arrived at the hotel, the staff were very informative and friendly and gave us all the information we required. We had booked a double room with a garden view. We got up to our room to find twin beds and a view of a roof and a muddy hill, which we were not exactly pleased about. We returned down to the reception to ask why we didn't have a double room and could we be moved to one, in which they replied with no because they are pretty booked up but we could pay 50 euros and have a upgrade. I was really unwell the first few days, so I could not be bothered to argue with the guy and we decided to keep our room and just push the beds together. If you are a fussy eater, then this will not be the place for you. I'm not that fussy but I struggled to find food I liked, I mainly ate pasta and bread which some salad everyday, however on our 4th day, they got a new chef and the food did improve. However there is not a wide range as I have experienced in other 3* all inclusives. All the staff are lovely and they try to remember you as well and accommodate you as well as possible. There are two pools, but we mainly stayed around the one closest to the bar and where all the activities were throughout the day. They have two menus at the bar, one which is all inclusive and one which isn't. The all inclusive menu also stops at half past 10 at night and you are only allowed one drink at a time. Which in my case, was frustrating as we didn't take any money with us and only got a small amount out for things we needed to buy, such as the air con for the room and big bottles of water. There are no snacks on the all inclusive between meals either, so we found ourselves buying crisps, ice creams etc throughout the day. There is a small shop on the resort and a spa, both with really friendly staff and willing to get to know you to improve there English skills! The walk into the town is lovely but it's a big hill to come back up after. They do regular buses to the beach throughout the day if you wanted a day out of the resort. You have to pay extra for air con, the wifi and the safe keys. However, I've never been to an all inclusive place and not had to pay for aircon, so we paid for the first night and kept the remote on us all day, as you are meant to leave it in the room so the cleaners can return it. When we checked out, we just left it in the room and nothing was mentioned about it. We did enjoy our stay but wouldn't return purely for the fact that we paid the same amount as our holiday last year and that one was more all inclusive than this one. We made friends through participating in the daily activities and momo is a fantastic entertainer!

Stayed here for 1 week with my partner beginning of September 2013 and we loved it. Staff was very accommodating and friendly especially Costas who managed the evening bar. The entertainment guy was also bubbly and fun. The views are out if this world. Food was good and if you want a relaxing sun filled holiday this is right up your street. Very hilly so not for wheelchair bound people unless you take a taxi. We would visit again.

The hotel is in a beautiful location and the basic amenities are all clean and well kept; however, the food served in prison would probably be better quality. Simple food can be cooked and presented to a high standard, but the catering at this hotel is abysmal. I have never seen so much processed food offered in an hotel, if you like bones, fat, gristle and offal, the Panorama is the place to go. We lived on boiled eggs, bread and occasionally the chips were fresh and crisp. Liver thrown onto a griddle was the main meat at dinner on Saturday, straight from the butcher's box. The salad bar was repetitive and lacking in presentation. Booked through Teletext as a last minute, paid more for one week than other visitors had paid for two, the location was almost 50 miles form the area I requested, not a happy experience overall. Had to spend too much on travelling and eating out.
