Dessole Lippia Golf Resort
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Afandou
Reviewed 25 September 2017

We, my husband and I, stayed at the hotel from the 9th to the 23rd of september. Our stay was pleasant, the weather was beautiful, the food acceptable dispite finding the feta cheese everywhere and an animation team that simply made the difference, they were great!
So all ok? wait a minute and read this funny episode.
The11th, when we came back from breakfast, we found in the room a beautiful array of soaps, creams,hair conditioners, a skin scrubber, a tub antiskid matt and even the set to make coffee and tea in the room. It had been fine even without that "surprise" and we thought "oh my, what a luxury!" ......BUT.......when we came back from lunch, the very same day, everything had disappeared. I spoke to friends who had the same present and their staff did not vanish. So I went to the receptionist who, after having heard the story, said we would get a new supply. Actually the 12th in the evening we got a new set for which I went to the reception to thank......All ok?......Of course not. The13th, when we came back from breakfast, surprise of the surprice, all the stuff had gone again....Of course we could happily survive without that stuff. Nevertheless we reported it to reception and wrote a resume of the facts in the hotels comments' book and said "Please do not give us a new supply;the joke could well stop there."
We must state that our belongings were untouched...but we have an advice to give.
Should you have a similar adventure and you would like to use the stuff, put it in the safe right a way. Enjoy your holiday.

I have just returned from a family holiday at the Dissole Lippia and what s lovely time we had. Travelling with me was my husband daughter son-in-law and my four grandchildren aged 13 10 3 and 2. When we arrived at the hotel it was quite late and the restaurant had closed but we were greeted with sandwiches and fruit. ROOMS we had 2 rooms between us and each room had 4 beds in with a good sized bathroom and balcony. They were spotlessly clean and we had clean towels every day and our beds were made every day. Body and hair wash was supplied with a hairdryer in the bathroom. RESTAURANT We could not fault the food at all. It was delicious with plenty of choice. Pork turkey beef lamb fish sushi Etc. The Greek salads were lovely and Deserts were delicious with fresh fruit with each meal. You could either eat in the air-conditioned restaurant or outside on the terrace. During our stay we were invited to a barbecue night which was outside. I would definitely recommend this because we had a lovely evening. POOLS there are two pools each with a baby pool. The main Pool is large with a pool bar. The other Pool has three slides which were great fun and has a small pool bar/hut. The beach is a short walk away and has a stony beach with lovely clear waters. Towels and beach towels are supplied by the hotel. ENTERTAINMENT this was probably our only disappointment. The entertainment was done by the staff that worked at the hotel and although they tried very very hard and worked hard it would've been nice to have had a proper show. Children's disco was great. STAFF all the staff were helpful and friendly. If we had any problems they would go out of their way to help. OVERALL This is a great hotel with great pools amenities and delicious food. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed our stay very much ...... just one bit of advice. ..... We were in block one on the third floor and the air-conditioning was not very good. When we queried it with reception the next day they gave us a key so we could keep the Aircon going all day which made a difference. Also you do not have to pay for the Aircon or the safe

Hotel is very big, lots of rooms and people, but there was never a queue to any bar, never had to wait for food or drink, which is brilliant! Slides are good, kids spend lots of time on them. Staff polite even though speak very little English they speak a lot of other languages.

intertainment is strange , you have to go to this ceparate place for kids disco and then 45 mins of show which happens every day, and that's the bit that I didn't like, as normally, you have entertainment where you sit, which is much better.

Rooms were full of ants, that's a downside. But were cleaned every day.

This resort is probably perfect for families with children. There is a large pool, easy access to the beach, lots of entertainment and it is all inclusive. Generally the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean although some of the decor was worn and there were bleach stains to the carpet. The rooms were well air conditioned, had digital safes, complimentary bottled water and outside balconies. The buffet restaurant had a good choice with good quality. The beach has umbrellas and sun loungers. There is plenty of space and great swimming to be had. Overall the resort caters for a slightly old fashioned all inclusive package holiday concept; however it does it well and would offer a good family holiday.
