I was upgraded to the Vasia beach and spa hotel (Vasia village say they are 4* and the Vasia beach and spar is 5*). So this review is for Vasia beach and spa.
I've been in better 5* hotels but this one was still very good. What made it better than most was the staff. Always friendly and always willing to help with any problems. Elsa in particular on reception was great.
The drinks included in the all inclusive were a disappointment (choice and quality. Awful beer and the juice is not juice) as was the fact that it finished at 23:00. My flight was delayed and I ended up arriving several hours late then to be told that I had to pay for a drink if I wanted one!? I was however given a free welcome drink of sweet ice tea which was a life saver. The WiFi was very sketchy and barely worked.
Although I have stayed at better hotels for overall quality, the atmosphere and genuinely friendly staff at Vasia beach and the people I met are what is making me want to go back. Great grounds and pools as well. The weather was amazing and Stefano's bar over the road the place to go after the all inclusive stops. Great staff there too.
Top Tip: Stefano's bar. Very friendly quiet bar. Great place to sit drink and chat to your new found friends and make friends with the bar staff. I think every third drink was just given to us by the barman for free to share a drink with him. Yamas!
