My family and I chose this hotel due to the plethora of outstanding compliments paid to it via Trip Advisor. I must say that we were not disappointed! The praise given to Dimitri, Deena, Spiros, and not forgetting, Anastacia, is fully and wholeheartedly justified. Right from the start they were attentive and helpful to the extreme. That isn't to say that they are subserviant because they're not; they have a few rules which are in place to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of every one of the residents e.g not walking straight off the beach into the Hotel Foyer. It all just enhances the experience.
My wife has a real issue with the cleanliness of Hotel rooms, particularly their bathrooms, but even she was happy at the CGB. The rooms aren't the biggest but more than adequate, with the balcony's an excellent bonus.
In regard to the food, I eat a lot! but was never left hungry at any time of the day. It was varied and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The staff, from the bar to the restaurant, from morning 'till night, were excellent, always happy to chat whether on, or off, duty.
The pool is kept exceptionally clean, both the water and the poolside, mainly by a pool guy who arrives around 6pm each evening. Altenatively the beach is literally just across the road from the Hotel and is clean. The sea was mostly warm enough to swim in, even as far as swimming out to the paragliding pontoon in the bay, about half a mile away. There was a lifeguard on duty throughout the day and a safety flag flying. Watersports were available further down the beach although not too cheaply!
Evening entertainment was varied daily, with a combination of Dimitri and Spiros 'on the decks' in between. All tastes catered for, including requests, as well as the obligatory 'dance slot' where guests are actively encouraged to take part in 'group' dancing (Not my cup of tea but my wife and kids loved it!). It was also our eldest daughter's birthday while we were there and the Hotel provided a lovely chocolate cake, complete with sparklers, FOC!
Overall, an amazing holiday. It certainly isn't the cheapest hotel but the value for money and enjoyment far outweighs the cost. We met great people, who we've kept in touch with, and have already booked to return in August 08.
