“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

After reading other reports we were rather apprehensive but on arrival were given a lovely big room at the end of a corridoor with large balcony/terrace area overlooking the olive grove. The small bathroom problem was dealt with immediately. Towels and sheets changed several times during the two weeks. The owner was absolutely fine when greeted with a smile and responded accordingly. Only slight downside was that at the pool area the sunbeds were very close together with no room to manoeuvre. The sports on TV were relayed rather loudly too, all we did was decamp to the beautiful beach a few minutes away. A really lovely stay in good accommodation and a superb resort. Other peoples aircon a bit of a pain but this happens everywhere.

Room Tip: Rooms that get a little morning sun and no evening sun are essential this time of year. Room 212 wa...

The reception area is nice (if a little smelly after meals) & the pool & bar area are lovely. It's cheap & cheerful & basic. The 'kitchenette' is a cupboard, sink, fridge & 2 small rings. We only used the fridge.
The room was spacious & clean. We paid the extra 50 Euros for the air con that didn't work half the time & as our room was on the ground floor & shaded we didn't even need it so I'd advise checking your room first & try a night without it first.
The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work & there was no shower curtain so the whole bathroom got soaked after every shower & didn't dry for ages & left us with pools of water on the floor.
The food in the bar is lovely, we ate breakfast there nearly every day, the staff are pleasant & friendly.
The location is ideal, a 5 min walk from the beach & right next to the main street.

Whether you love or hate Letsos depends upon what your expectations are. If you want five star luxury or want to be self catering family meals or if you're obsessed with cleanliness then perhaps this isn't the place for you. If however you just want somewhere to get your head down and have a shower for the duration, then it's fine.

My only negative comment is pool/bar and reception toilets. No toilet seats, hole in the floor in both and the lock doesn't work in the ladies loo in the pool/bar toilets, plus, as in Greece you are encouraged to put your used toilet paper in the bin, they don't empty the bins often enough. Basic stuff Letsos!

Room Tip: Main hotel or block past pool are best. New block on main road don't have showers with wall brac...

I was a little concerned prior to visiting this accommodation,because I too had read some reviews which were less than complimentary, but our studios gave no cause for concern.I had previously emailed Mel,the lovely receptionist requesting a ground floor (or one with only a few steps to negotiate) as my elderly mother was in our party of six and I have to say the hotel was very obliging.Our studio was on the ground floor facing the lovely pool area, studio no.12.The studios in this block do not have aircon but we didn't need it second week of September.In fact there was a cooling breeze when studio and terrace doors both open.Ok,it was basic with just enough utensils to prepare snacks...this was fine as we mainly ate out. The studio was cleaned ,linen changed etc.It could get a little noisy with loud music from the pool bar, but this didn't go on too late.The staff were friendly and helpful.We didn't spend much time around the pool as we prefer the beach which is two minutes away.We all had a fabulous time,weather was superb.Selection of trips available directly across the road from the hotel.Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again as it is acceptable accommodation at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Email hotel directly if you have definate preferences regarding your accommodation.

You simply need to know that this hotel is run on a shoestring. So if you want a real budget holiday and you are prepared to put up with more or less anything then this is the place for you. We left the hotel about one week into our two week package. The problems were various - a door stuck closed to the room, some electric fittings hanging off the wall and finally a bust main water pipe in the room. The hotel refused to changed our room. So we left. I am trying to be honest and plain about this place because it is only with the patronage of the tour operators that the place stays open. It is unsafe for little chidlren who have the tendency to get electrocuted if you have exposed live wires to touch.

After reading the reviews on here, we very nearly phoned and changed the hotel, we were that worried but instead we decided we would give it a go. All i can say is i am so glad we did, there was nothing wrong with it at all. What do you people expect its Greece, the sanitation in different countries is very different from ours here in the UK that is to be expected, if you dont like their way of life why bother going to Greece?! There are hotels out there that have sky TV in every room etc but surely thats not why you go on holiday?! Our room was ever so slightly on the small side for four of us (two kids, myself and my mother in law) We could barely swing a cat on our balcony but we had a beautiful view all the same! Our room was cleaned every day i couldnt complain about cleanliness. Considering it was self catering you cant really cook or eat in your room, we had no table and chairs but then i dont go on holiday to cook!
The pool was perfect and always clean as were the sun beds etc, we never ate in the restaurant but we did eat in the pool bar the food was lovely. The owner is a bit grumpy but then we didnt have to deal with him really, the english lady on reception was very helpful and friendly as was the lady at the pool bar and the girl that worked at the pool bar in the evening. I loved the area, nice and simple and not too hectic. We had such wonderful weather i am upset to be back in the UK freezing and covering my tan up with jeans and jumpers! I tend not to return to the same place as i like to explore the world but i would return to Hotel Letsos in the future. Two weeks, Self Catering and we had a blast, my son even taught himself how to swim within those two weeks!

Room Tip: We found the rooms on the back of the hotel were best to look out to sea. Although if im to return i...
