Booked this holiday only three weeks before travelling stayed for one week from 18th August 2015 after booking we read quite a few negative reviews of the hotel and were a bit apprehensive however found this to be totally unnecessary we arrived at 11.30p.m. and were greeted by a friendly receptionist who showed us to our room we had a room for 3 as myself and my husband were travelling with our 5 year old granddaughter the room was on the first floor and was light and airy and spotless. I can honestly say we found all members of the staff from reception to restaurant, Hotel chamber maids and bar staff to be friendly and helpful, my granddaughter was in her element as she liked to go to the pool bar herself and order her own drinks the man behind the bar made her feel like a VIP and she loved it. There are 2 main swimming pools and one for children most of the week we stayed my granddaughter had the pool to herself my only criticism would be that there are not enough parasols around the pool areas and as it was really hot we needed one every day which we sometimes struggled to achieve other than that the pool areas were clean and tidy although there was the usual sunbed pantomime there were quite a few broken sunbeds which would have only taken a few minutes to repair and I would hope if anyone from the hotel reads this they will action would have saved a few disappointed guests. The food was varied and freshly cooked and there was always something for everyone nothing was too much trouble . There is a small shop on the hotel complex which sells drinks and snacks and contrary to what we read on previous reviews you could buy a large bottle of water for 70c and water was free at the bar and in the restaurant. Unfortunately with the heat my granddaughter was pretty tired by 10 oclock when the main entertainment started and missed it most evenings I would have like there to have been a little entertainment more child orientated a little earlier in the evening as my granaughter was usually too tired by the time it started. All in all we had a perfect week in a lovely hotel with very friendly staff located in a beautiful setting with spectacular views from every direction the beach is a ten minute walk away but it is very hilly so I would recommend using the free hotel bus which takes you there and back. We would definitely think about visiting here again .

We spent 10 days at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised. You get what you pay for. It was a cheap holiday on a budget. The staff friendly the entertainment day and eve with Mohammed was excellent and fun . The room was clean but did upgrade to a sea view in room 626 which was ideal as all on the level we needed to be on. Everywhere is steps and hill more like cliffs and you need to be Olympic fit to walk up them. I have seen reviews slating this hotel why I don't know . My only fault with the room was although it was Lovely and had beautiful views could not sit on terrace as no shade at all. The pool was great and costas behind bar was lovely always a welcoming smile. Onsite there is a shop and fish foot spa which is an experience. The all inclusive finishes at 10.30 but to be honest that is late enough. After this you have to pay but it is very cheap. Tend to find a lot leave and go to their rooms. The beach is not 15 mins walk more like 45 mins and in the heat that is not pleasant but the hotel do provide a free bus which take 10 mins a cab back is 8 euros but Def worth a visit to beach lots of taverners and bars a small beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The eve entertainment is excellent more aimed at the adults but I think when there are lots of children like our second half of holiday they should of done first 45 mins aimed at the kids. But everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Also I think ice cream shod be available throughout the day for the kids and water. I know it's cheap but if kids happy then parents happy who in turn would tend stay later the kids should get their drinks free it's soda water with a cordial. As a whole this is a great holiday destination but no good for wheelchairs or frail or problems walking as all the rooms are up hill and steps steps steps.

Stayed at village Panorama in May 2014 with two friends. When we booked we paid a bit more for a nice room and it was worth doing. Staff were friendly, Yanis especially and all reception staff and bar staff. Food ok, typical all inclusive. Pool was lovely, entertainment good, drinks good. Views amazing. There is a bus that takes you to the beach, 10am and 11am, 5 minute journey. Bus back 3pm and 6 pm. Beach is fab. Lovely restaurants, especially the sea food restaurant run by Thomas. All in all a nice break, for a week, couldn't ask for more. Would definitely return.
rooms are poor and cleanness is rubbish, not all the room is clean , food that is offered is more of a snack not a meal. Need to taxi to go anyway from hotel roads to dangerous to walk anywhere. And...
