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

The pool and pubic areas are very well kept. The room are very basic. We requested a room on the ground floor due to Mum's disability. Unfortunately we both ended up with lots of bruises due to the small rooms and bashing our legs against the furniture. Take lots of gang sockets with you because the only usable plug was... More
