Stunning low level hotel and grounds, beautifully manicured and planted, very child friendly , lots of different pools, Fun waterpark which is discreetly tucked away along with a bowling alley and an, American diner. Food and drinks were generally very good but hugely overpriced, think very top end London prices. Everything is extra, ie tennis, bowling, bikes. Fantastic beach bar and staff, all very chic, beach long but not fine sand (more like very fine grit) and shelves deeply so not particularly suitable for very young children. Stunning golf courses and out of school holidays a wonderful resort for adults. The two small local towns of Pylos and Gialova worth taking a taxi to for diner. Very Pretty. Excellent restaurants and taxi cost each way more than compensates for the prices you pay in the hotel. N.B. Apparently it is Marriott policy not to label any food ingredients especially at the buffet where there was a lot of cross contamination So if you have serious allergies you have to make this known on arrival.(They were very helpful but for our family this still added a lot of stress at meal times with the children.) However all in all a great holiday we were 6 adults and two children (age 3 & 5.)
