                        Both public/private pools were freezing. Also, I was told by mgmt that a] the pool was heated to 27degrees(and that they double checked it) and b] they only heat the pool in the "off season" - which August clearly is peak season, so this outright contradiction I found to be offensive, and I don't like being lied to like this.This is not 5 star service. After 3 days our pool warmed up some and was finally usable, but we weren't able to use it for half of our trip, which was why we selected this destination to begin with. Also, first 2 days were no service bec they were having a wedding next door and sent all the staff there, so we were with trainees and short staff - not impressed! But did get better/nice exp when pool temp & staff were back

                        -Very positive and friendly staff (all reception staff/porters, breakfast supervisor, reatsurant manager Antonis and pool bar attendant Manolis in particular); -quality and tasteful food (Old Mill was real positive surprise, Yacht Club was always nice); -very green and well- tended territory. Mini-golf, table tennis room was used almost daily by our 9yr old daughter; -real privacy and seclusion created and cherished by both people and nature.

                        Our room was clean and spacious but it seemed that design ideas overrided functionality and comfort: -bath room has no hooks for towels while shelves are not handy, so you unintentionally scatter yr towels everywhere; -bath cabin's door frame is suitable only for short people, so I hit my head a couple of times against it (I'm 184 cm) - no complaints (survived!), but it happened clearly because of the low door's height; -wifi at reception only + only 4 hrs free - the time for paid wifi is over and EMare should be the comfort zone for ipad and pc users; -we felt that cosy sand beach is somewhat out of EMare concept - it should be equally green, with much more olive trees on its upper level (like over the whole hotel territory); otherwise it looks like any other beach in the area; -water entry is a bit narrow and there was often a feeling of a crowd even with just a few people in the water. Final and most emotional: your famous bench overlooking sea (depicted in all EMare ads, incl. The r&c catalogue) is impossible to use, it's not clean (old leaves, dust, etc), too hard/stony to relax on it, no at least little table for a cup of water and... It's still nice. Can anybody fix it, put some pillows or whatever..? It can become EMare's real window case. NB: all comments above are coming from the devoted R&C customer and should be treated as an open, positively-minded and friendly contribution.
