We had a really good time in this hotel. Everything was amazing, even if the furniture is not so modern. But who cares about furniture or tv on vacations? Very good food, wine and drinks. I was surprised with beer which was quite ok comparing to other greek lagers which are not drinkable. Food was quite diversed every day, including... More
