Nice view from the junior suite on the cliff, private beach, wonderful breakfast for suite guests, nice establishment in general, you are brought to your room by a golf kart so you will not need to carry your luggage. nice spa, spacious kids room, several restaurants.
reception staff could improve their attitude, super loud music at night, private pool was too cold, it never faces the sun. no sign of "private area" next to junior suites so you get random guests wandering around your private pool.
Hotel is based over a big territory and looks very well designed - it feels like it’s own little village / town. It was interesting to walk around the streets between bungalows and explore little cute places. Beautiful gardens , our room was good size and quite comfortable. Although we visited Ikarou Beach hotel in the end of the season (stayed there 2 weeks ago for 1 week), there were still good amount of restaurants and bars open and staff maintained high standards of service throughout - it definitely felt like we stayed at 5 star hotel. We have arrived quite late for our check in due to delayed flights, but hotel staff welcomed us with drinks and offered complementary cold snacks bar, which we found very thoughtful and nice . Out of dinner options (we decided to try few different restaurants during our stay) we would definitely recommend Veranda - fantastic dining experience and amazing food ! Would recommend to try their lobster risotto. Must also mention great service and beautiful design . Overall, we have really enjoyed our stay and it was good value for money - will recommend.
Clown by the kids / bar poop seemed a little creepy :D Also, would prefer to have bungalow with a bath, but we got one with the shower, may be should have specified and contact the hotel before we moved in.
Very laid back. Once you are in, you feel you are home. No one actually bothers you and very helpful if you ask them.
The house cleaning rooms were right next to mine. They were making noises every morning and disturbed my sleep. But, they did a very good job of cleaning and no complaints.
The layout, gardens and onsite facilities at the resort are great (and very clean). Although it was fully booked, we never had the sense that it was overcrowded. We had dinner one evening at the Sunset restaurant which was lovely and we would recommend. We left feeling more rested than when we arrived, which is mission accomplished!
Ikaros Beach Resort is marketed as a 5 star hotel and whilst it is lovely, there are little things that fall short of a 5 star experience. A couple of examples; not replenishing the toiletries when they'd run out, the mattress was quite thin and not particularly comfortable and despite being a recently renovated room, it was starting to show signs and wear and tear, so we didn't get the sense that they are maintaining the fixtures and furnishings. As a couple, we were 'upgraded' a family room which turned out to have more space but was far outdated compared with the photos shown on the website. We asked to be moved to a bungalow, per our booking and reception very kindly moved us. I don't want to be unfair to the hotel, because overall we had a lovely stay, but it fell short of the 5 star experience it's marketed as.
Good facilities. Areas for kids and also for adults only.
Poor food options for vegans.
