This spot is tucked a couple of blocks off the main drag on a quiet side street. The property is on both sides of the street. There are pools in the courtyard on either side. It is quiet and calming. Unfortunately, I only had one night to spend here. There are a ton of in-room spa services. The staff is... More

It's small, quiet, peaceful, and romantic. My husband and I have spent our last 4 anniversaries at Korakia, and plan to spend our next one there also. From the really wonderful staff to the movies under the stars, there's no more romantic place to get away, refresh and renew. It feels like you're staying at an old friends hideaway. I... More

Were to start? Second visit, this time I am staying in the Sahara Bungalow which is decorated so creatively, making it difficult for me to describe.

Just so perfect on every level, individual bungalow accommodation, all very different, one with its own orange grove. Swimming Pools,with fire pits, amazing, every evening the gardens become alive and magical with the candles and tea lights hanging from trees and placed throughout the resort. .

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Korakia and absolutely loved it. We sprung for the Aegean bungalow and would do it again in a heartbeat. Though it was a brutal heatwave (115 degrees +) our room stayed cool and calm. Our doors opened up right to the Mediterranean pool which was perfection! The grounds are also beautiful... More

Hi Alana, Thank you for your review. We will review the pool status and work on this. The pools are salt water but because they are commercial, they need to have some chlorine added. We look forward to seeing you again! More
