Ikos Olivia - All-Inclusive Luxury Redefined
By Vikki Ashton
"From the moment we arrived at the resort our welcome was 5 star. A smiling Maria, the Deluxe Collection Concierge Manager enthusiastically welcomed us and immediately summoned our buggy to take us straight to our accommodation to check-in, no queuing in reception. After a late and delayed arrival, we were very grateful for the pre-delivered room service and Tattinger Champagne!
Our deluxe 2 bedroom beach bungalow was the best room in the house and the old saying 'location, location, location' could not have been more true. The following morning when I opened the patio doors to our garden, I was completely knocked out by the view of the beach and our 4 sun loungers just waiting for our arrival! I thought I'd died and gone to heaven, but little did I know the best was yet to come! During our 7 night stay we dined (and drank) like royalty. The restaurant concept was fantastic as it was a themed buffet in each of the restaurants during the day and a la carte during the evening. A special mention must be made to Ouzo the Greek restaurant and Fusco the Italian, however, they were all fantastic. Dining on the beach was also a very memorable experience and a 'must do' during a stay.
I have one more big WOW - the staff. They were all so helpful, courteous and friendly, yet professional. This resort takes a lot of beating and I am looking forward to staying in the brand new Ikos Dassia next year to see if it can live up to it's big sister".
