I have just arrived home from the Hermes Hotel and have mixed feelings. Positives are: Perfect location, close to everywhere.Excellent pool area, very clean, always a sunbed available, the animation team didn't bother me, their visits where brief & not too loud but it is definately not geared up for children. Reception, Restaurant areas also exceptionally high standard. Lady who... More

And the hotel is very clean and some improvements have been made. However this hotel has always been geared more towards adults and this year the hotel was more... More

Myself and my husband recently stayed at hermes for two weeks on an all inclusive basis, and here is my honest review of our holiday. Arrival at the hotel was fast and efficient, we emailed the hotel two weeks before to request an upgrade to see view (220€) and have to agree with everyone else that it was well worth... More

Just come back from our second holiday at Agios Nikoloas and the Hermes hotel - so excuse me if this seems to be a bias report, having said that i have been know to report problems. The Hermes is a hotel situated on a main, but small road and on the sea front - so a sea view room is... More

All the reviews are very helpful, food is good, staff are lovely, great to have a salad waiting for us in the fridge, and too many sunbeds reserved all day. Agios Nicolas is a lovely resort, more up-market than kiss me quick. Elegant shops and bars filled with locals. The hotel beach is not interesting, but who cares when there... More

Ater reading the mainly good reviews of this hotel, we were slightly disappointed. We came here for a week half board and for the amount of money we paid, we expected a room with a decent view, albeit not a sea view we didn't expect our room to be overlooking 3 enormous bins at the back of the hotel, dogs...

Our stay at The Hermes was just perfect, the staff were friendly, the room was comfortable with a lovely sea view (definitely recommend) and the food was just excellent with a varied choice. The roof top pool was relaxing with lovely views of the sea and you never had to fight for a sunbed. There was some evening entertainment, but... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a week in May on a half board basis. We booked a balcony room with a sea view. The room was relatively basic but was what we needed and the private balcony and view were fantastic. The self service breakfasts and dinners were of very good quality with a large variety of different... More
