Nice Hotel Great Beach
Check-in was a somewhat long process. Front desk staff was very helpful. The facility was clean. Room was very nice and clean with great view. The beach process was a pain, have to give a cash deposit and retrieving deposit was a lengthy process. The offering of drinks from the bar is limited to their speciality drinks. They had no idea what a Bloody Mary or margarita was. Buffet was clean and had many options. Food was decent but not amazing. Staff did go out of way for special celebrations. I would stay here again in off season, I can’t imagine staying here when hotel is at maximum capacity.

Great 5* all inclusive hotel, would stay again!
We stayed 3 nights in Mitsis and we loved our stay. The room had an amazing sea view, very comfortable bed and a bathtub that was a requirement for my girlfriend. We enjoyed evenings on the balcony with a bottle of beer. The only thing that we liked less was that we needed to walk quite far from the reception. It would be better if the stairs were on the other side of the building. The food and bar service were just top class. The bar areas were great and served really nice drinks. The main food area was great and they served a lot of things, so everyone should be able to find something for themselves. The special restaurants need a reservation made the day before and unfortunately, they don't inform you that before your check-in, so there is no way to reserve the restaurant for the night you arrive. The snack bars near the pool that are working between the main meals are a great idea and their desserts are just delicious. The pool is beautiful, but for a 5* hotel could be heated for off-season. Some other pools were quite dangerous, as I slipped and fell quite bad on my back trying to walk inside, despite being careful. The reception was usually great, but there was one receptionist, with a totally wrong attitude and she made us feel like we are bothering her. There was no WiFi in the rooms, only in reception, and that wasn't very practical. Overall great hotel and we hope to come back, food, bed, location, tennis courts, sea access and pool - would recommend everything.

Summer in Creat
Great location just a 20 min drive from the airport. Hotel is super clean and tidy. Staff is super nice, always willing to give an extra hand. Receive the help with the luggage and on the leavinng write the time with i want to take luggage and in this time it was in luggage room. Beach - The sand beach in the hotel with free sun beds and parasols .Beach boy bring a new sun bed if you ask him to find a free one Swimming Pools and Waterslides - There are 3 swimming pools at the hotel all with free sun beds and parasols. The main pool has a lovely atmosphere during the day with the animation team providing constant activities for all and gentle music played most of the day but nothing too loud.Smallest one is 50cm. 2 slides which are great for the younger kids . Bars - There are plenty of bars within the hotel providing refreshments throughout the day. Every evening music often played at the main bar including a once a week Greek night. In the little theatre children disco with animators till 9.30 and then show if threre no special show on the main terrace Internet- free wi fi in lobby and received password for 2 devices in hotel area as club member.

Good, could do better
Overall, the hotel was good. However the rooms need a bit of updating, the decor and the curtains looked tired. The bathrooms need a bit to TLC as well. Regarding the reservations at the Chinese and Greek restaurants, if you happen to get the late slot, the staff seems to rush you. While I appreciate you need to close for few hours, perhaps the time slots need to be adjusted accordingly to allow enough time for guests to enjoy their meals.
