How to Get There
To start I must say that the staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. The beach was great no problem getting a bed or towels, the water sports was there, very helpful people.
The breakfast had a good choice covered most needs, the egg station was a joke, with a queue or 5 people, with just one cooking, don’t ask for a poached egg, it took 20 minutes.
The rooms were clean, bathroom small with a shower over the bath with a glass screen, not built for the wider chaps, and no extractors. The walls were paper thin so you could hear the rooms speaking, coughing etc. The mini bar was expensive, I do not except to pay shop prices, but 4.50e for a small bottle of coke, a tad high.
In the evening the bar was ok, when there was some entertainment, otherwise dead. One night they ran out of Brandy and Sambuca, not 5 star.
All in all very average.
Many things about Eagles Palace would deserve a 5 star rating. The beach-side location is beautiful and the views to the nearby islands are wonderful with stunning sunsets. The restaurants and bars offer good food and drink, although relatively pricey for a low cost country. All the staff that we encountered were friendly and very helpful, giving first rate service. However, the bedroom and bathroom were a little dated and would need to be updated for the overall 5 start rating to be justified. The adjacent Eagles Villas (operated as a separate property but sharing the hotel facilities and under the same ownership) show the level of equipment and furnishings that would need to be provided.
It’s the attention to detail that makes this place outstanding along with the very high level of customer service. The views are amazing with lots of outdoor seating areas, lovely beach and pool and plenty of watersports opportunities. I’m dairy intolerant and there was always something for me to eat from the huge buffet selection at breakfast and dinner. Highly recommend.
What an incredible place - where do I start. The location of Eagles Palace is fabulous - it has a private beach that is never over-crowded (even the beach thatch umbrellas have a service bell to call the waiter to order food and drinks!). It is close to the nearby village of Ouranoupolis which is a lovely village that oozes atmosphere and is filled with traditional tavernas, local authentic souvenir shops and nick-nak shops. Being on the third peninsula, far from the madding-crowd, you genuinely feel away from it all yet not isolated.
The resort itself has the most friendliest staff I have ever encountered (and I've traveled to many countries!!). Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. They always have a smile on their face and genuinely make you feel as if you're the only guest they have to serve that day. Incredibly special with outstanding service.
The food - OMG... for dinner there are 4 a la carte restaurants to choose from and 2 buffet restaurants. Each restaurant has it's own specialties and the setting of each one is magnificent. The Italian restaurant, Eleonas was a firm favourite and often fully booked - and it's no secret why. The infusion of flavours were far beyond what I would ever consider!! The BBQ seafood beach restaurant, Armyra, was just as popular, situated on the beach with a wide range of mouth-watering seafood. The seafood buffet evening is definitely worth attending. If you are celebrating a special event, the fine-dining restaurant, Kamares, is a great choice. Located on a deck overlooking the sea - you are spoiled with the most amazing sunsets (whilst of course eating outstanding food by a Michelin-star chef). For lunch, the beach cafe or the pool bar are just perfect, and for late afternoon cocktails we often found ourselves at the Cabin bar on the hill by the Villas - an outstanding view from the deck.
Finally, the facilities and activities on offer will keep all ages busy. Besides lazing on the beautiful beach or alongside the pool, there are a lot of water-sports activities to choose from. A great day out is to hire a boat and visit the many beach coves and tavernas on the opposite island of Ammouliani. The stunning turquoise waters are tempting to snorkel in but keep your eyes open as there were many sightings of dolphin! Other choices include SUP's, skiing, sailing, windsurfing, wake-boarding, scuba diving etc. But a firm favourite for the kids is being towed bihind a boat on one of the many inflatables. Oh and their spa offer treatments that leave you feeling like a queen.
It really is the best family holiday destination. By the time you leave, you feel like a new person, having been pampered by the staff, spoiled by the food and inspired by the location. I'll definitely be visiting this magical resort again... thank you to the entire team for creating lifelong memories that will be cherished forever...
Firstly the positives. Really nice beach location and great for kids. The beach is very safe and relatively secluded. Excellent watersports with some of the friendliest staff ever. Generally the service was great around the hotel from housekeeping to restaurant to bar to the lovely lads that ferried us on the golf carts to and from the upper bit of the hotel. Food was just okay but we did have a great meal in the taverna thing on the beach. Cracking barbecued octopus and lovely service.
Not so great was the pool - it's tiny. Our room was small too despite being a family room. Also, we were supposed to have a seaview which it kind of was if you stuck your head out over the tiny balcony. I asked to be moved and they wanted to charge another 2kEUR which I declined!. If you get chance, try to avoid the rooms on the lower floors.
Now the pretty bad stuff. Reception. Absolutely terrible. Generally the reception staff were off-hand and really not helpful. Loads of Russians who don't understand how to stand in line and expect to be served before everyone else. Takes ages to check-in. There seems to be heaps of admin to do which is painful. Rather expensive for incidentals like coffees and drinks. 6 or 7 EUR for a local beer seems a bit steep. We were a family of four and we probably spent $100ish EUR per-day on food and drink outside of main meal times.
All in all, we had a good 10 days but we won't go back. I suspect there are better properties in that neck of the woods.
