I have read the negative comments. And like some of you who wrote them we were a little 'bemused' on arrival by this 'All inclusive Light'... However, once we had adapted, it was a great holiday. Our room was clean and in good condition. The food although basic and a bit samey, was fresh, edible and there was plenty. The staff ..... get complained at all the time - mainly because of the mis selling by UK Travel Agents of 'All inclusive'.
We talked to the owner, very nice gentleman who runs this alongside his sister and mother. He offers the 'Light' Option and informs the Travel agents of this. He calls it light, as he does not wish to attract the lager louts and massive drinkers, his intention (alongside making a living) is to keep Georgioupolis small, quiet and desirable. The younger staff, warmed up, once they realised that their guests treated them with civility and not like 'a waiter' and they received smiles instead of scowls. Its not their fault the place is mis sold!
This is a BUDGET hotel. It does not pretend to be 5* and anyone who expects 5* should book elsewhere.
We got value for money. We got clean sheets/towels daily. Rooms serviced by approachable staff. I never had to put anything back during dining because it wasnt clean. The food was always fresh and plentiful - they did run out of items at peak dining times, but we were on holiday ... no rush, so we mentioned it and waited for them to replenish, which they did, willingly.
Yes, its a pain having to pay for the sunbeds on the beach - complain and they will sort this for you.
Yes, its a pain the bar doesnt have more choice or open later - Tropicana is two minutes away so from 9.30pm go there for some entertainment - you dont need much money, its not expensive. Especially certain cocktails buy one get one free!
Yes, it smelt sporadically of sewage.... this is Greece! It does!
All in all for what we paid, we got the weather, the atmoshphere, the peace and quiet of a beautiful unspoilt location.
Whilst we understand all the people that have grumbled on here and we could have picked at aspects of our holiday.... we did everything the Greek way, we relaxed, we accepted, we waited, after all it was one week in a superbly unspoilt part of Crete, make the most guys, be nice to them and they will return it.
