We visited this hotel for a week, the weather in May can be hit and miss, but it was perfect for the whole week. We were very lucky I don’t know where to begin. There are so many positives, that I will just get the couple of negatives out the way 1. You will come back much heavier than you left 2. I wish I could afford to go back multiple times a year. This really is a 5* resort. You will want for nothing. The staff will do everything they can to get whatever you need. If you have allergies or food requirements, they send the chef to see you. There is always staff in the restaurant on hand to help. My daughter is a strawberry addict, they brought her out fresh strawberries daily. My children have dietary and health issues, this hotel is exceptional for dealing with it. Everyone greets you, and checks if there is anything extra you need. When I arrived at the hotel, after checking in, we went to the pool for the last hour of sun of the day. I walked over to the bar. The bar staff couldn’t apologise more that I had walked to the bar (which I wanted to!!) They insisted they walked me back to my sunbed and to serve me there!! They really don’t want you to move, they want to serve and look after you. They are constantly checking on you. We hired a mini for the day and went to visit oceana which was lovely. The beach is so peaceful. It’s not the softest sand I’ve ever been on, but it’s absolutely fine. You can’t fault the food there’s something for everyone and I saw them making people special requests. The entertainment wasn’t on whilst we were there, but we didn’t miss it. The manager Katerina is phenomenal, she works non stop to make sure everyone is happy, she walks round checking on the guests, checking on her team. Doru is also a total asset to Ikos, they are a dream team together. I wish every hotel I went to was run by Katerina. Rooms are cleaned daily, towels are replaced as often as you want, drinks and ice cream all day… Pools are heated slightly which helps, having your sunglasses cleaned daily by the pool was a lovely touch too. Every member of staff is polite and courteous. Check in and out is super easy. I really can’t praise this hotel enough. I was so impressed (and I’ve travelled to many many European 5* hotels) that I booked whilst I was there to come back: I really didn’t want to leave. You will not regret booking this hotel. Well done Ikos Olivia, you are perfection
Jamais déçu - Best experience with ikos
I spent 1 week with my family including a little baby of two months. It was Perfect : 1. restaurants are great 2.pools are perfect for kids. We prefer the pool without kids game because it was more calm 3. The beach is the best place - so peace full and the beach team are very Nice and smiling - always there for your comfort. 4. The rooms are very comfortable 5. All the service team is top, they make your holidays wonderfull 6. The all inclusive service is also great with a lot of free services (paddle, canoe, pedalo, bycicle, a la carte restaurant, smoothie, cocktail, wine tasting, pilate) Everything is free and perfect for a family. You cannot be disappointed if you want to have a peacefull and restfull holidays. The resort is fantastic. My daughter used a bicycle all the week for free and she was very happy. We also dis excursions by our own. We went to ikos dassia in 2021 it was the same quality. We will come back to Ikos Resort for sure and certainly to ikos olivia. Special bravo to the lobby bar for the Best bloody mary. See you next year ikos team !
This was our 4th time at the Olivia and 6th at an Ikos hotel - they just never let us down! Amazing place, exceptional food, incredibly clean and the staff cannot do enough for you. Everyone that works there is smiley and friendly, special mention to Maria, Anna Maria & Petrina from Ouzo where we spent most lunches. We have two young children and the “Bungalow” room we’d booked was perfect - gave us a separate room for the kids to sleep in and plenty of space. Cannot speak highly enough of this place and can’t wait to go back.
The best all inclusive destination in the Greece. Spyros from the restaurant Provence, to praise him will be a little, a true professional with incredible flair and approach to his work and the client of course. 6 ****** I would give for Spyros. I also want to praise Stefanos and Costas from the beach bar in front of the Ouzo restaurant. Overall an amazing complex with amazing staff, thank you for a wonderful holiday
A slice of paradise with the jewel in the crown of Katerina Micheli
We have just returned from our fourth visit to this exceptional, amazing, wonderful hotel (which speaks for itself) and I can only say that our experience gets better and better each time. From the faultless service, the exceptional food, the attention to detail, the beautiful gardens...I could go on and on but I would run out of superlatives to describe how much we love it at Olivia. I don't know how they train their staff but I wish every company who has any form of customer interaction could replicate their magical training. Nothing is too much trouble; the exceptional and truly amazing Katerina Micheli, the duty manager, has her finger on the pulse of everything that is happening, pays the most incredible attention to all her guests and has the most exceptional inter personal skills. Ikos is very lucky to have her. I must also mention the wonderful Asimina, the deputy food and beverage manager, who notices the minute a glass is empty or cutlery needed and has such a fabulous knowledge of wine. So many wonderful staff but special mention must also go to Veroni and Elena at Guest Relations, Eirini the brilliant nutritionist who so kindly and discretely sorted our daughter's dietary requirements, Lefteris and Sakis who looked after us whenever we needed cars, luggage help etc. The bars and restaurants are beyond compare and all the staff are amazing; Theano, Nikos and Chrysa in Anaya, Vanessa, Nicholas, Spyros and Julia in Provence, the wonderful Enea and Marios in Fresco, George and Androniki in Ouzo, Areti and Olga in the main lobby bar, Nansy in the sports centre with the energising aquafit and finally (but most definitely not least as they were fabulous) Vaggelis and Makis in Helios with the lovely Elena, Matilda and Maria. We cannot wait to return and once more step into the wondrous bubble of Olivia!!
