Stayed at Iberostar Hermes from 24th May-8th June 2011. I was given a room on the 8th floor, unfortunately not a pool/sea view, but a view of private apartments and a horrible street. I asked to be relocated but was advise the hotel was full. Turned out to be very quiet room. I was very suprised to find that the air con, fridge, safe, internet access and pool towels were all FREE! This was very good, decent sized fridge in the room.
Pool area very nice, good views over Mirabello Bay and the Bar was not overly expensive - very reasonable. Food was also very nice, not a huge amount to select from, but the quality was very good.
The entertainer 'Star Friends' were very friendly. Borko and Velina are both lovely people and try their best to get you involved in games like darts, table tennis etc during the day and their are some shows at night. Don't miss the Greek NIght out a Tuesday. Their is a barbecue and the Greek food is fantastic.
I would recommend a little Dutch bar as you turn left out of the hotel. Its called Toedeledoke and they do lovely toasties and nice candle lit bar ar night.
I found Aghios Nikolaos a lovely resort and the greek people are very welcoming. Pretty expensive resort though.
I would definitely return to Iberostar Hermes.
