Panorama Villas is a small 4 star self catering resort which is designed with style, built with passion and offers comfort in a unique atmosphere. The splendid accommodation is in eleven villa apartments which are fully decorated and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. Set on a steep hillside, only 3 km from romantic Aghios Nikolaos, Panorama Villas has breathtaking sea and mountain views.
Site Facilities: Swimming pool (20 m x 10 m), children's playground, landscaped gardens, animal farm, private parking, communal washing machine, pool towels provided.
Sandy beach with water sports is only 200 m away. Other various beaches are located in short distance.
We had lovely views out across the bay and the rooms and facilities, including the pool were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a great base from which to explore the east and southern coast and we were out and about everyday. A quick bus ride into Aghios Nikolaos town for the restaurants and nightlife too.
We stayed in Villa 10 at Panorama which is aptly named as the view is just spectacular. The villa was well furnished and spotlessly clean and the terrace was a beautiful place to sit at any time of the day. The gardens are also beautifully kept and everywhere was pretty well looked after. A car is a must but as we'd planned to hire a car anyway, this isn't a problem. There are several good supermarkets less than 10 mins drive and the lovely beach at Ammoudara is a 3 minute drive away.
If we had any complaints there were very minor. The pool wasn't cleaned for a couple of days and by the third day there were a lot of leaves, bugs and other detritus floating around. We mentioned this to Sonia and she was most apologetic as it is usually cleaned every day. As we arrived during a quiet week the pool bar wasn't open which was a bit of a shame but our villa was so close to the pool it hardly mattered.
The only issue that would prevent our return is no fault of Panorama Villas. The hotel at the foot of the hill had regular entertainment. The music itself was not intrusive but the volume of the DJ/host was far too loud. Again, we mentioned this to Sonia who is well aware of the problem. I hope by mentioning it here also, Sonia can take these valid complaints to the hotel owners who will respond appropriately.
In summary, Panorama Villas are a wonderful place to stay and as long as the DJ can be muted, we would happily return!
Alles Bestens und sehr empfehlenswert. Wir waren im April 2011 dort und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Das Appartement war sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und man fühlt sich schnell heimisch, was sicher auch an der Hilfsbereitschaft der Betreiber liegt. Zudem ist der Blick über die Bucht ist grandios. PKW ist empfohlen.
