The Good: This is our second trip to Sirios Village and this time our two year old daughter was with us. The hotel itself (Grounds and Buildings) is very modern and very clean. The pool that has been added since last year was fantastic for small children and the slide is an added bonus, the convinience of the mini mart and its wide range of groceries was also very handy.
The Horrible: So with all this positivity here are my horribles about the hotel. This hotel is now all inclusive (it wasnt on my last trip). They take the very cheap approach to providing drinks and services. There are soda fountains that are available at the pool bar, or inside the dining room. The "mixed drinks" or "cocktails" are in what is best described as a slushy machine. That can only be found at the pool bar. If you want juice you have to go past the dining room into the actual buffet room to get it. If you are a parent with a small child this is a long way to go. If you go while you are wet you get yelled at by staff, you can't dart in there during meal times in your bathing suit either because you will get yelled at by staff (we witnessed many of these incidents throughout the week including staff yelling at children) . My biggest problem is you can only get water from these soda fountain machines by using these very cheap plastic glasses that are provided to you, and you are not allowed to fill your own water bottle. Other all inclusive hotels have had bottled water available. In fact on the day we arrived I asked a staff member for some water bottles he informed me that it would be one euro per bottle, or I could fill a glass free from the fountain. The next morning when I went to the onsite market, they sold the same size and brand of water for .60 euro. What a rip off. Wine also came out of a dispenser machine, which was accesible to children, I witnessed a little boy about 8 or 9 drinking Rose. There was a great variety of food. Unfortunately, I found myself having to look through the stack of ¨"clean" plates to actually find a clean one, I was constantly finding food remnants. I pointed it out to the staff but after finding a complete set of lipstick stains on my wine glass I gave up. We never ran into any of those cleanliness issues last year when they werent all inclusive.
If you do decide to go to Sirios I do reccommend you walk a very short way down the street to the Paradise Tavern. It is fantastic. They have amazing authentic greek food, great prices, and the staff are inviting and very nice. They also sell a fantastic homemade raki that is delicious.
