Τα καλύτερα all inclusive ξενοδοχεία για την εφετινή τουριστική περίοδο στην Ελλάδα, δημοσιεύει η ηλεκτρονική έκδοση της βρετανικής The Telegraph.
Στην λίστα αυτή των ξενοδοχείων, που συγκεντρώνουν την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία από τους ειδικούς του μεγάλου βρετανικού ενημερωτικού ομίλου, φιγουράρουν κυρίως ξενοδοχεία από την Κέρκυρα, την Κρήτη, την Ρόδο και την Πελοπόννησο.
While the resort is large – sometimes tiringly so – it’s far more charming than the average all-inclusive, mimicking a traditional Corfiot village. Splash around the two pools, kick back in the spa and sauna (each guest is entitled to a free 15-minute taster massage), or enjoy a choice of tennis, beach volleyball, water polo and aqua aerobics. Nightly entertainment for adults and children features great quality music and local dance. Beyond the buffets are seven-course private dining, La Spiaggia Italian restaurant, and à la carte Paralia restaurant, serving well-presented pan-European fare. Read expert review

An ultra-exclusive resort with an emphasis on health and wellbeing. Though undeniably glossy, this is not really a resort in which to see and be seen – some guests only emerge from their pavilions to watch the sunset or to borrow a book from the 1,000-volume library. That said, there are two tennis courts, a 25-metre pool with wraparound terrace, gym, Pilates studio, yoga pavilion, and, this being Greece, a small outdoor amphitheatre. The spa offers treatments based on the healing philosophy of Greek medicine. Cuisine is Greek-Mediterranean, made from locally sourced produce. Read expert review
