lovely place, but disappointing food
This was our second visit - probably our last. The breakfast had definitely deteriorated: mediocre quality pastries & bread and badly presnted hot dishes, including VERY cold bacon. And for our anniversary dinner in the grill all four of us selected chateaubriand which was tough and rather tasteless. My ceviche starter was also lacklustre. All in all a great let down as our previous visit was superb. Maybe it was because they were very full for the bank holiday weekend.

Magnificent!
Our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip from UKcould not have been made better- wonderful gesture with the complimentary champagne and staff who were just so brilliant in their attentiveness and genuine care for the customer. For us, simply the best....thank- you!!

Lovely stay for our anniversary. Will definitely r
Great pool, lovely views and great food. Such a lovely buffet breakfast with endless choice and variety and the grill for dinner was superb.
We felt truly spoilt during our stay, such a shame it was only for one night but we will definitely return. The restaurant and front of house staff were efficient and friendly. The pool was lovely although I did feel that the staff there could have been a little more atrentive while they seemed to stand around charging quite a lot instead. I did overhear another guest giving out to them about this and they did seem to increase their levels of attention to guests. We used the spa changing rooms to get ready late in the day which was great although air conditioning is definitely needed in the changing rooms. Overall a fantastic stay and will be sure to return.

Home from home
Beautiful grounds, ambience and friendly staff
From the second we arrived we were made to feel special and valued. Our little boy was given a complimentary beach play set. The Oyster Box hotel is simply outstanding. Can't wait to return.

Felt like home
Staff friendlyness, wonderful welcoming atmostphere, breakfast is excellent
We had a wonderful stay. We advised the hotel in advance - via Agoda - that we are celebrating an anniversary and they really spoiled us and made it extra special. The staff from the front desk to room service to porter service to waitron service to the lady at the gate going down to the beach to the gentleman at the lifts were exceptional in their interaction as guests. Welcomed us back each time we walked through the front door / gate, wished us a great day. Said they want us to return soon so that they won't miss us too much. Just superb! This was our 3rd visit to the Oyster Box and we will most definitely go back again and again and again. Thank you so much to each and everyone that we had the pleasure to interact with including those amazing people behind the scenes that we don't always see but know the big role they also play. Best regards, Lindy and Shawn Cambouris Room 311.
