My husband and I have just returned from our first holiday on the Greek Islands. The Hotel Solemar in Ixia.
On arrival at the hotel we were given the key to our room and we made our way up to the first floor. On going into the room the first thing that hit us was the heat so we rushed down to reception to purchase the remote control for the air con. Once that was sorted we looked around the room. Very compact but room enough for two. The bathroom was okay but the shower was very,very small and at times the drain in the middle of the bathroom was needed.
The pool area was fine and there were plenty of sunbeds available but as it wasOctober the hotel was not full. The lady who runs the pool bar was very kind and friendly. We only ate at the pool bar once so can't really comment on the food there.
The hotel bar was very clean and very well run.We went there every night after having a walk. There was a happy hour every night but this only applied to cocktails and long drinks.Two for 5 euros. Gabrielle the bar-man was very friendly and had time to chat to all the guests but as mentioned before it was October so he was not exactly run off his feet.
Now THE FOOD. It was DIABOLICAL!!!!!! We were staying on a half board basis and may as well have been self catering. There was not really anything that looked appetising at all. Thank goodness for bread rolls.
Ixia is a nice place.Pleanty of bars and places to eat. The beach is not so great but if you have a pool at your hotel then thats not to much of a problem.
As I said this was our first visit to any of the Greek Islands and I'm sure it won't be our last but Ixia and the Hotel Solemar won't be on the list of our places to visit in the near future..
