“Grecotel decided to pass the full amount of tax reductions to its guests. We, at Grecotel, are very glad that significant TAX reductions are taking place in Greece, therefore our hotels and the country in general become more competitive. We are delighted that Greek food will be offered by our chefs with a premium discount”, outlined Vassilis Minadakis, Grecotel General Manager.
Vassilis Minadakis added: ‘Amazing new restaurants inspired by contemporary culinary concepts, such as the brand new “Kalyvaki” at Grecotel Riviera Olympia & Aqua Park have been added to our portfolio this year. Grecotel Group is already showing an average increase of 4% in bookings compared to last year, and we are very optimistic for 2020 with the new tax system.’
