This is the main question for this 4 star(???)hotel.A hotel full of cheap tricks and hidden charges.All the guests that unlikely(like me), paid the All Inclusive package and discovered when they arrived there,that the things wasn`t as they thought to be(and have paid for).Well you have to pay everything out of 4 hours(13.00-14.30 & 18.30-21.00 sharp)that this hotel serves his low under-average meals.As soon as the opening hours complete the lights turn off and you have to visit the ala-cart restaurant (in which of course you pay everything).If you want a drink late at night you have to pay for it.The sea towells-you have to pay quarantee for them!The safe in the rooms-yes you have to pay to get the code for them.The internet acess also(1E/15 min).Wi-Fi does not excist.The snacks inbetween the meals -you have to pay for them.The use of the athletic sports grounds-you have to pay quarantee(!) for them.If you want to drink a real orange juice(and not that is massive served in 2lt bottles of ``OYZO SATYROS!), a real beer or an authentic drink(and not ``Pedigran`s``-or something similar),yes you have to pay for them.Allthough in nice location,the buildings are old,with no sound proof at all and obviously needed a renovation years ago.This hotel is definitaly star-overated.This is NOT a 4 star hotel.It`s a 3-minus one-at the most.But the whole story from the very start>>we arrived late at night after a long combined trip(airplane/car) and the (only)employee at the reception after 25` of checkin`in(!),he let us all alone in the middle of the night, with all the kids and our luggage ,trying to find our rooms among the separate buildings of the hotel.The clearness(what?) of the hotel is another great matter.You have to tell them and also call the reception to make it.And of course if you see under the beds,to the upper side of TV or the lights,then you realize that all these have years to be cleaned up!The reception is irritating slow and the employees there is obviously the wrong persons in the wrong place.But the real problem of this hotel is his staff.Ruthless,in divorse with kindness and they don`t smile.NEVER.Can`t they realize that the quests are their salary?That without them they wont`t have work?When the opening hours of the pools are over,they whistle(!) to move away the man,woman and little kids who unfortunately still are to this area.I tried three(3) times to meet in person the manager/owner of this hotel.He was allways ``out of office``,or in ``endless meetings``.Even when we checked out and we have a difference for a broken arrangment from the part of the hotel about our late check-out,even then he didn`t show up.And his office it was just one door from the scene of the ``disangreement``.Overall an advice for all of you who prefer QUALITY All Inclusive vacations.There are a lot of options for this kind of holidays in Greece.But NOT in this hotel...
