We arrived at the hotel around 12.30 at night. When we got out of the bus we couldn’t believe what we were seeing ‘Shock Horror’.We were given a sheet of paper with the times for (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and the times for the shuttle bus cost for the AC 7 Euro per day). OMG we almost cried as we opened... More

We stayed in a spacious studio apartment comprising bedroom, lounge/kitchen and shoer/toilet room. Air Con was extra which we asked for but they were unable to get it working during our time there which made for uncomfortable sleeping! The food was uninspiring; bolognese sauce lunch and dinner every day with the shape of the pasta changing, frozen veg and tinned... More

Was looking forward to a week of proper Greek food, instead we were offered spag bol most evenings (prob re-heated from previous day as spag looked like it had seen better days). Snacks consisted of small sandwiches in the morning and thin slices of cake in the afternoon. The ad stated there were 2 bars, sorry to say only 1... More

Got back this morning from this place, really disappointed especially as I had looked at reviews of 'Nikolas apts' DO NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE! On Arrival - walked into the reception (about 3am) to be 'greeted' warmly with "passports" ...the man then said there were no rooms so we had to stay in a building across the road. It was... More

I stayed here for a week and barely survived. The food is disgusting and often unidentifiable and either pink or grey. However the heinz soup is good. The rooms are awful you are given dirty towels and sheets if you are actually given any during your stay. We were lucky enough to have cockroaches on our last night. The staff... More
