After a lot of stress and changes of hotel within the Ikos Group thanks to covid, we have now been here for a week, second visit to Olivia, last year Dassia. The hotel remains one of the best we have visited, (been to the Sandy Lane and St Geran, Reethi Rah, etc many times). Firstly their covid protocol is exceptionally meaning guests don’t have to wear masks (though staff do) and can have as normal as holiday as possible...
We have a one bed deluxe bungalow and it is gorgeous. Beautiful linen, spacious, private garden, huge bathroom. Straight onto the deluxe pool which is wonderful - and amazing service - Sakis take a bow you’ve looked after us so well. Also love the deluxe cabanas on the beach. And whilst the restaurants are on more limited menus and no buffets, the food remains outstanding. Especially our beach dinner of lobster.
And finally a shout out to Ellie in kids club, George at Frescos, Vasilis and George at Ouzo and our lovely waitress whose name we can’t spell (C) but to all the staff who work so hard and in masks in hot hot weather to give us the best holiday possible. But the person who has worked tirelessly for us during this special holiday is Katerina, the duty manager, who works so hard, is kind, thoughtful, tireless, thank you for making my birthday and our holiday so special. We’ve already booked again. Highly recommend.
We have decided to go to our summer vacation to Greece during the Covid-19 pandemic. The main reason was that Greece has been handling the pandemic extremely well and was one of the safest countries in Europe with lowest infection rates. We have chosen the Ikos Olivia, because of superb recommendations from our friends...
Our expectations were exceeded.
First of all we felt very safe: upon our arrival we received a complimentary COVID PCR test, this assured that all guests are negative and that we are in safe environment. The staff has kept highest standards of health security, wearing tirelessly masks all day during heats - respect!!!
Secondly, we were treated like VIPs all the time. We enjoyed the deluxe pool area and services almost alone. The global pandemic has hit the travel industry badly, but the staff made everything possible you enjoy tour holiday beyond your standard.
Thirdly, the catering was great, restaurants and food quality was superb, all served on your table. And as a bonus: if you did not find something on the menu, they prepared you your favorite meal regardless.
They had complimentary mini coopers, so you could explore the whole area.
Last but not least, the stay was outstanding due to very able managers who made extra mile to satisfy all our requests. I would like to highlight especially Liza Martyanova the front office manager and Katerina Micheli the duty manager. We have stayed in many top 5star hotels around the world, but I have never met such a dedicated managers. I definitely recommend this hotel and if you will stay there, get in touch with Katerina.
We have just spent excellent 10 days in Ikos Olivia. Extremely helpful and hospitable staff, top service in every respect (covid test upon arrival), child friendly (even toddlers have their own menus:) and beautifully mantained resort full of summer herb scents.
Our special thanks go to Katerina Micheli and Liza Martyanova for their tireless help with our holiday requests. Fantastic Greek and International cuisine and excellent service: Sylvia - the best waitress in the resort in the Asian, Fjori in the Italian, Maria in Flavours, Christina in the Greek and Despina on the beach.
And our deepest admiration to all employees for wearing face masks devotedly all the time despite hot Greek summer...
A big thank you to everyone at lovely Ikos Olivia, from the pool bar staff to Christos at Slalom Watersports. We had so much fun and our time was made easy and relaxing by the hotel and the people there. Their infinite care protocol helping to protect us from COVID was applied really well, and staff were always diligent and sensible with safety measures, including wearing masks all day despite the heat.
We really recommend doing watersports and boat trips with Christos and his team, who can teach you wakeboarding and take you to an amazing local taverna and beautiful beaches...
There was plenty to do onsite too, including tennis and yoga, and music every night. Thanks to the wonderful staff who were so lovely and always helpful, including Angela, Margaret, and Magda. We are three year alums of Ikos and will be back next year :)
My kids had so much fun. The service was really great - particularly Liza from front office, Fotini, Florin, Ioanna in the restaurants. The food is excellent! The water sports was fantastic and Christos made it super fun for the kids and in a very safe way...
I highly recommend the Ikos Olivia!
