In a lovely setting and pool and bar area lovely and clean, with lovely staff, those are the positives.
we booked a week all inclusive which when booking was the usual all inc' three meals a day, snacks, drinks etc. what we actually got was three meals a day and local beer, wine, ouzo and soft drinks, doesn't sound too bad BUT all and any snacks had to be purchased including ice - cream ( 3 euros!) any other drinks including home brands had to be purchased, we knew if we fancied a johny walker or a southern comfort for a night cap that it would be extra, but they charged for any spirit other than ouzo, at one point a sign went up saying we would have to pay for tea/coffee when it wasn't a meal time but after many complaints they recanted.
We also were promised a sea view ( in writing) and there was no sea for a mile and a half!! The hotel explained it was a pool view but as we didn't have that either we asked to be moved. We were told, "no" then "yes" then "no". we asked for extra pillows as ours were like cot pillows, we were told "no".
Thank goodness the weather was beautiful so we were not stuck in our dark and dingy room with a dirty bathroom.
Could have been so nice if the owner were nt out just for a profit and nothing else.
Would never go again, we are not hard to please.
