Standard hotel food I could always find something but there was a lot of pasta. I have never stood in a queue as often, At times there were 20-30 people queuing the main reason for this was the way drinks were being served in half pint glasses instead of one pint.
Having been served you return to your seat try to relax then its back to the bar to queue again, so serving pints would cut down the need to return to the bar as often.
The Hotel although very nice, the rooms were very clean and tidy I did feel it was too isolated. Poolside clean and plenty of sunbeds towels provided and bar was ok.
Evening entertainment was very poor, one night was bingo, one night Greek dancing, two nights of a piano player that sounded like Les Dawson on a bad night the only good act was a male singer.
Food plenty of choice & always hot. Salads to die for with plenty of fresh herbs & spices. Cheese board & fresh fruit always top quality.
Entertainment bit dated geared for the older people but they do a great Greek Night with dancing.
Location is out on a limb, which was perfect for us, as it forced us to slow down and have the rest we so needed. We knew this before we booked, as we wanted total chillout.
Hotel staff were all very polite and helpful. If you are polite to them, they are lovely to you. (One russian man demanded a drink from the barman, and the barman quite rightly said "A please would be nice!!) Quite right too.
Entertain - didn;t see any... I think there was an animation team (one miserable man and a women) never saw them apart from eating in the restaurant. Weren't friendly at all, and as I said we never ever saw them.
Would visit again for a week just to cut off from everything and be forced to relax and chill out.
For us it was perfect to do nothing.
My only criticism was the friggin wasps!!!!!! Never ever ever would I go there in September. Apparently its the fruit season! Well I have never ever seen so many wasps they swarmed all over, they were relentless and totally ruined the day of the holiday. Every minute someone was screaming cos they got stung. I feel that the Manager should have done more to prevent this i.e. like in Turkey they burn pots of cocoa smelling stuff which deters them, or even put a big thing of jam or sticky sweet stuff for the buggahs to fly into and dissapear like they should do!!!! The wasps actually ruined my hol;iday as I have a phobia about them, and they swarm you and just drop on you and sting you. NIGHTMARE..... Avoid August and September like the plague, cos you will get stung and the big hornets are scary in themselves!!!!!!

the resort is in a fantastic location but not if you don't like hills as they are unavoidable, we like to walk so no real problem. the views are great & locals very friendly. The pool area is ideal & yuo do not have to get your towels out early as there are plenty of sun beds. one big down point is we were plagued by wasps for the whole two weeks with many people getting stung. this definately was a down side at times but we still managed to relax & have fun around the pool with mandy & natalie whom worked endlessly to keep us entertained with various games. food was not upto normal "gold" standard having been to many before & became vary boring after two weeks expecially breakfast! the hotel is vary dated & looks tired, beds are like rock, pillows give you neck ache & aircon is very noisy. evening entertainment from the resident band was poor & very few people watched them, however the resident team consisting of two girls & two lads were fantastic & would not be out of place in the westend of london! staff were slow to serve you and if you failed to tip after each round of drinks tried to avoid you & were rude on occasions.
overall nice relaxing time but this is not what you expect from gold so be warned if you are use to the usual gols standards, you will be dissapointed.

The hotel was really very nice. After reading previous reports we wondered why some people did not like the hotel or the food. The food was actually very good. The chef was always out testing the food with her thermometer to make sure that it was hot. There was always plenty to choose from and always at least 2 local dishes on the menu as well as everything else that was on offer.Plenty to choose from the salad bar and always plenty of choice in desserts.( one night there was over 16 different desserts from cakes ,mousses, trifles, baclava(local dessert and also desserts for vegetarians.With us staying there for 2 weeks we were entitled to 2 a la carte meals in the seperate restaurant which was equally as nice.
The staff were really friendly especially our waitress in the restaurant( Alexandria ) Also full marks to the entertainment staff especially Mandy and Becky. They worked really hard.
