    Nice hotel, not outstanding

    I'll start off by saying the reception staff were excellent from even before my arrival. I had high expectations of the hotel as it is a 5* and has such fantastic reviews, but I was a little disappointed. The food is not as good as I'd expect - breakfast is fine, starters and desserts at dinner are ok, but mains are not great. Every option seemed to taste pretty similar with similar vegetable accompaniments/sauce each night. The cooking of the meat for mains was not of a consistent quality. We had a room with individual pool which was nice, but not quite as special as I'd thought. The outside walls between the rooms with pools is very low so had our neighbours been out more it wouldn't have felt private at all. We tried the spa as when we booked it came with a complimentary massage. The spa was nice, and massage was fine, although didn't appreciate the masseuses whispering to each other throughout, quite distracting from this relaxing experience. The town itself really does not have much at all, so it's a good thing we were looking for only a relaxing holiday where we'd stay in the hotel the whole time. Not very picturesque. Overall slightly disappointing - the hotel overall seems a bit out of place in this location, and with some improved dining options and a more luxurious feel I would agree with a 5* rating; as is I found it more of a solid 4*.

    Lovely and peaceful

    Although I’m a mother of two I never truly realised how lovely it was to swim in a pool, relax on a lounger with a book, or eat a meal in the company of adults only, with no children around. A truly peaceful stay. All staff members are amazing and go above and beyond to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

    Comfortable hotel but lacking atmosphere

    Hotel was adequate but lacked some of the final finishing touches eg gym equipment lacking and not in great condition, had to ask for housekeeping to clean room, pool area needs more constant attention and pool towels generally in poor condition. Staff and management are trying hard but lacked atmosphere and finishing touches

    Loved Castello.

    Staff were wonderful helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a split level suite which we did not expect it was immaculate and we had a pool, sea view and a view of a beautiful church. Shower was fantastic and the bed huge and so comfy. Breakfast was nice with fresh orange and an omelette making station. We did not have dinner but wished we had tried one night. We had a couple of lunches which were fantastic.never had a problem getting a sunbed and the pool was lovely. We loved our stay at Castello and Sissi is a fantastic resort. Probably the nicest hotel we have stayed in all our travels around Greece! Hope to return one day

    Service was outstanding and seamless, just what I would expect from a hotel like this. Eventhough we only stayed for one night it was very comfortable and we felt right at home. Breakfast was included in our hotel room and the pool was clean and nice to swim in. We didn’t get a chance to explore the area but heard that there are a few beaches within walking distance that are beautiful.

    Further from the beach than I thought

    Further from the beach than shown on the photos. Room was excellent but disappointed in the restaurant - standard of food and staff not that of a five star. Very little entertainment but the one we did see water aerobics was excellent.

    Very friendly and pleasant hotel.

    Very friendly and pleasant hotel to relax. It’s a boutique and very private. Never overcrowded pools. Lovely restaurant. Chef is very imaginative. A la cart menu is nicely presented. Staff can’t be more helpful. Drinks are served in style in nice glasses and local wine list is very impressive. Rooms are well appointed with private pools and great bathrooms with jacuzzi and rainman showers. Overall we had a great time.
