The hotel was fully booked this year, very different to 2016 when it was only 1/3 booked for the same week, but the friendly staff attitude continues and the service was...

I booked directly with the hotel and 6 of us stayed in 2 rooms for 5 days in May. The hotel was very clean and nicely maintained. The food was brilliant. The rooms (251 and 253) were seaview, though were above the patio so not the ones I would have chosen. I asked at Reception and apparently the best rooms...

An all inclusive resort hotel with a lovely private beach. The hotel had a great pool plus a small one or children. There was plenty for families to enjoy. The food was plentiful if a little repetitive. The location is rather quiet and a half hour walk from the village of Sissi. As we like to get out and about...

As soon as our taxi arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by two members of staff. We were quickly given a cold drink and taken to the restaurant for lunch before needing to complete check in. The hotel is positioned right on the beach with all the facilities such as sunbeds and shades easily available. Snack bar is available...

With a friend I have just spent 10 days at the Greco Meli Palace in Sissi. Despite arriving in the early hours, there was a warm welcome, a porter to take cases to the room, wine, sandwiches and fruit in the room. The room had a lovely view, the grounds of the hotel beautifully maintained, the food super, and the...
