The villa is offered on an all-inclusive tariff.

What you should know…

  • The villa is on an incline, so it’s easier getting to the beach than it is getting back
  • There are other villas around you but the owners have tried to make the villa as private as possible with a stone wall surrounding the proper
  • Don't worry about not having a kitchen, the resort's AI offer and room service is second to none.

    I went along with family got a villa, but me last minute got a room. I was able to call a buggy to be transported to and from the villa very easily. The villa had a pool but as we had children in the party we requested the pool be heated to a higher temperature which they accommodated. About the children's club: it was fantastic. The children who are quite picky actually refused to be collected at lunch time and wanted to stay until closing. Their staff was fantastic. The room service arrived hot and whenever we are in the main resort it was very varied in themed buffet style. I would highly recommend and am excited to visit one of their winter resorts

  • Overall a lovely place that grew on us...

    Posted by CL on 13/09/2017

    We just returned from a 7 night stay at The Residence (3 adults and 3 children under 5). There are lots of positives - stunning setting in the cove, beautiful infinity pool, great architecture, very friendly service from staff. Our case went missing on the outbound flight and turned up two days later and the hotel were good about phoning on our behalf to check its whereabouts The funiculars were a novelty but it became a bit of a logistical game in order to catch one at the right time (and took a good 2 days to get our bearings in terms of working out which one to catch). The adjacent hotel kids club also looked nicely run . Its a shame there is no lift through the central part of the hotel right down to the beach. The beach is accessed by two flights of stairs which is impractical with a buggy/small children. Villa guests get preferred seating in a separate area on the beach! We only dined in the buffet restaurant once and the food was average and its pretty bustling atmosphere with lots of kids (ours were in bed!). We dined on the half board dine around programme a few times and loved the Ocean restaurant and the Taverna special Greek evening was also worth going to. We also left the hotel two evenings to eat in Agios Nikolas (would recommend Pelagos restaurant). Breakfast for villa guests is in the Ocean restaurant and it was very calm and excellent service - can't comment on the main buffet breakfast but we enjoyed sitting in the Ocean restaurant garden at the back and it was very relaxing. It was unfortunate that for the first 2/3 days we had horrendous winds (which I have since read are very common and occurred throughout July this summer) and it made the pool and umbrellas unusable and also the first three rows at the beach due to sand being blown. This got us off to a bad start but fortunately it stopped on day 3 and we had a lovely last 4 days without the wind and for that reason the hotel really grew on us from that point on. Getting a sun lounger at the main pool is also tricky unless you are prepared to stay there all day (not practical with young kids). Overall the staff were very friendly and helpful.
