This was our second visit to the Despo hotel in 3 years. The hotel is small, comfortable and very clean. The staff are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The restuarant is buffet style and the food is excellent with plenty of choice. Although there is no entertainment on in the hotel at night there is plenty of bars around the... More

We stayed here in May 2015. It is a lovely little family run hotel, very friendly staff, and clean rooms. The food was always well cooked, and nothing was too much trouble for the chef. I have a dairy intolerance, and every day he made something special for me, without me asking. It is a 10 minute walk to the... More

We have not long returned from the 3 Star Despo Hotel, on an all inclusive basis. As with all package holidays, what are your expectations? It is a 3 Star hotel and we paid for a two week all inclusive holiday about the same as we would have done for a more upmarket self catering holiday. I personally dont expect... More

Stayed at the Despo with my partner in mid May this year. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean. The room was small and painted white, but the balcony was massive (room 304) and is over the top of reception and overlooks the pool. As far as the room goes, it was functional. Twin single beds, bedside cabinets, a small wardrobe,... More
