Visitors' Comments

Since 2000, a visitors' book has been on the front desk at Aquaworld.  At the risk of boring you, some comments which have jumped out at us are:

"Great - thanks for letting me feed all the fish on my birthday!!!!!"
J Hilton - Carshalton Beeches - UK - 19/04/2008

"We were here 4 times during our vacation - unfortunately we have to leave Chersonissos otherwise we would return more and more. Every visit was great - for the adults and the children. Such an experience can influence a whole life!"
