We wanted a quiet holiday to simply relax from 7th to 14th September. The village was full but never felt crowded. On arrival at 10pm, we were greeted in reception with a tray of freshly sqeezed lemonade, brandy and sweets. After we had checked in, we were taken to our room (a standard classic room) in a golf buggy which meant that we didn't have to drag suitcases around. There was a tray of food waiting in our room as the restaurants close at 10pm. We booked 'all inclusive' (they call it Pear Club)and were glad as prices are high as you would expect in a 5* hotel.
Our room was very clean and the sheets were changed every day. The minibar was replenished at turndown. The balcony had a sofa and two chairs and was covered in a beautiful bougainvillea. We had asked for a double room but were in a twin with the beds pushed together. The only other thing to comment on with regards to the room was the bathroom. The tiling looked like it was done by a child but there was a shower cubicle as well as a shower over the bath. There was a hairdryer and clothes line and plenty of toiletries which were replenished each day. The airconditioning worked really well.
We tried each of the restaurants for dinner (except Mr Dante - not keen on Thai!) and we never had to wait for a table. The main restaurant is a buffet restaurant and is open every day with the other restaurants opening 4 or 5 days a week so there is always at least 3 restaurants to choose from. Breakfast is buffet style with plenty of choice- for example, if you like boiled eggs, they have them boiled for 2 mins, 3mins and 5 mins. If you like omlette, the chef is stood there and will cook it with mushrooms, cheese, ham etc. Cheese, cold meats, fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, beans, cheese and ham pie, fromage frais, crepes, croissant etc etc. The juice selection included peach, sour cherry or you could help yourself to a glass of bubbly. You couldn't go hungry! The evening buffet was just as extensive. The fish restaurant was great, they bring the fish to the table and you can choose which one you want them to cook. The greek restaurant had an extensive menu.
All the portions served are huge and I ended up asking for a childs portion which they found amusing.
The pools were beautifully clean and were never crowded - probably due to the sunbeds being spaced well apart. We loved the four poster sunbeds. The pathways were washed every morning and the shrubs and lawns were very well maintained. Golf buggys ferry guests on arrival and departure so there is no noise from cases. The village has a very tranquil feel to it and is on the beach which also has well spaced sunbeds and is very clean.
Helpful, friendly, hardworking, polite - a large variety of nationalities too.
There was some sort of entertainment each evening - normally a tribute - Abba, El Divo etc. This is not a resort where it 'rocks' in the evenings. The beach has a watersports centre which does windsurfing, scuba trips etc but we just went to chill so didn't use it. There is a pool specifically for children but there were very few children staying. The spa treatment we had (Lindian special) was amazing and they were happy to accommodate my husband and I having a massage together.
I would say this is an amazing place to relax and unwind. Not ideal for families with children that need constant entertainment - we did see some people on the beach with a Lilo and rubber ring but none in the pools, it's just not that sort of place.
