Best ever hospitality, exceptional care and amazing holiday.
Great experience, that is typical for IKOS hotels. I have travelled really a lot, experienced almost all the world. IKOS resorts are TOP. In all aspects and features, hospitality, care, position, beachfront, dining, whatever you can imagine – a top class. Let me share with you now IKOS OLIVIA. The hotel taxi picks you up at the airport and it is free - included in your price. Comfortable and fast transfer – nice driver with a Mercedes limo, very relaxing. We came the first day of hotel re-opening after Covid19 lockdown and were tested on Covid 19 antibodies for free prior to entering the hotel itself. All went quickly in their own medical center, the test took us just 10 minutes. Just after we went to the reception. I have to say this gave us a proof of full security in regard of health and hygiene. Besides, all the personnel were wearing face masks and after each guest, the tables and chairs were disinfected very precisely. We really felt well protected and safe in these hard times. After arrival to the hotel that faced low occupancy (July 1, the first day of opening), we have been upgraded from our room to a wonderful beachfront villa. Excellent experience I have to say, moreover, this happened to us already second time of 2 in IKOS hotels 😊 Throughout the whole stay, we have been given an extraordinary care, supervised in person by Katerina, the manager of the hotel. She was always everywhere hawking for any of your desires or even unspoken dreams. I do not want to describe all attentive little gifts the hotel pleased us with, but be sure they know how to make you feel important and valued! Besides, IKOS provides you with a complimentary car (for free) for one whole day, and it is always a BMW mini! So we made a trip to Sithonia peninsula, found wonderful beaches and rented 3 times a boat to make a full day cruising for a very affordable price which we really recommend. The hotel´s all-inclusive concept respects the anti-covid measures so there is an a-la carte selection of meals in all of 5 restaurants, all the day. They fulfilled all our wishes regarding the meals, even with requests that were not in the menu. The food everywhere delicious and tasty, no doubt Michellin chef went around. 😊 The drinks are of all kinds and brands, always the finest world-class ones. When you are on the beach, be careful, if you only look a bit towards a bar or restaurant, you have the beach staff next to you immediately ready to serve you with drinks and meals, always with a smile.. Really superfast… really unbelievable… However, we have to say that all of the staff, regardless where in the hotel you are, tries to overrun your expectations, we were never said NO, impossible or similar. The beach is sandy, nice and very clean, the sea is absolutely clear, sometimes with small waves. So are the pools all around the resort, clean and nice. The whole area of the hotel and gardens is full of olive trees, making a real Greek pleasant atmosphere. Within the resort you can find a lot of different activities, watersports, beauty, SPA, aqua gym, really a lot. We would like to thank to the whole personnel of the hotel and especially Katerina for amazing hospitality and personalized care giving us the feeling of really being valued and welcomed. We enjoyed our holiday perfectly. 10 stars 😊 We strongly recommend and encourage everybody to spend holiday here, especially in these times, since you can feel absolutely safe from the health perspective. We will definitely spend our next holiday in IKOS again, whether in OLIVIA or in other IKOS resort. Peter
Best Family reunion experience
My sister and i loved everything about the hotel, we noticed that everything is sparkling clean and also the food, the drinks and the staff are exceptional. The hotel is definitely worth five stars and we can't recommend it enough. We want to return again next year. My sister loved the mocktail by the pool and George the Fresco Manager was very professional and polite,we especially enjoyed that the beach wasn't overcrowded and the restaurants as well. Our room was large and comfortable, can't wait to come back.
Amazing stay for one more time
FINALLY IKOS OLIVIA IS OPEN..... Five years now we spent our holidays to ikos and we have again great time especially in WaterSports with Mr Harisis Christo and his team......All about summer activities and amazing fun.... Great instructors plenty of games and relaxation.... Fun all day long..... Thank you Christos I would like also to thank Veroni and Katerina from the front office, for their hospitality. We will be back soon.
My family and I have just returned from a 5 night break at Ikos Olivia and were amongst the first guests since the resort reopened for the 2020 season. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we received phenomenal service from every member of staff that we encountered. The resort's management have taken every step possible to make you feel safe and extremely comfortable. Hygene is their top priority with regular cleaning and sanitising of everything you come in contact with. The rooms are spotless as are the restaurants, bars and pool areas. The watersports staff couldn'y be more accommodating and our son Jason enjoyed his first "fly boarding" experience and we all enjoyed the paddle boarding and kyaking! Flavors restaurant and bar service were the tops along with the poolside staff. There are so many people I'd like to mention but this review would be more like a novel if I did. So to sum up, if you want an amazing luxurious experience where you feel safe, pampered and special, Ikos Olivia is the place to go and we will be looking forward to returning there for a longer stay in a couple of weeks time!
We have stayed in Ikos Olivia for the first days in july, just after reopening season 2020. Since Ikos has always been the best in offering the best possible holidays, i was very curious how they would deal with Covid. Ikos has not dissapointed us, we were really impressed with the holiday feeling the hotel has given us. I have been in Ikos Oliva before, and have found a few small changes compared to earlier years. On arrival you have to take a Covid test, with a cotton swab in the nose. It doesn't hurt, test results take 25 minutes, you can wait during a fresh drink. You only have tot take 1 test per room, so if you come with your family, 1 adult has to do the test. When the test results are negative, you can enter the rest of the hotel, and start enjoying your best holiday ever!! The other differences after covid are: - No buffet, all à la carte, which is just perfect. The choice is enormous. - The distance between sunbeds around the pool is a little bit larger than usual, which is great too. We really had the best holiday feeling, and did not feel any limitations because of Covid. Rooms, food and drinks are just perfect and exceed expectations. Special thanks for the friendliness an hospitality of the staff, especially Liza, Katinka and Vicky. I really miss the sound of crickets and the most beautiful olive trees, everywhere you look.
