An all inclusive resort hotel with a lovely private beach. The hotel had a great pool plus a small one or children. There was plenty for families to enjoy. The food was plentiful if a little repetitive. The location is rather quiet and a half hour walk from the village of Sissi. As we like to get out and about... More

With a friend I have just spent 10 days at the Greco Meli Palace in Sissi. Despite arriving in the early hours, there was a warm welcome, a porter to take cases to the room, wine, sandwiches and fruit in the room.

Very friendly service, incredibly warm welcome. Nice neighborhood, away from the noisy resorts. Delicious cuisine. An ideal place to relax. Clean rooms and swimming pools. Very good wine and delicious Greek coffee. Certainly we can recommend this hotel to families with small children for a peaceful rest. We would like to go back there sometime.
