I would not go back to this hotel.
Don't be fooled by the enhanced expert photos of the superior rooms, you could end up with being allocated the classic room like we were. Totally misled by Olympic Holidays!
The breakfast room is like an old 60/70's school assembly room with breakfast products suited to a 2 star property. The corridors are like the pathway to a dungeon, the staff on reception couldn't care less, neither could Olympic. Watch out for the Brit who works for the hotel...he oozes confidence but is a complete waste of space not interested in you if you are upset with the hotel or room..However if you have been lucky enough to have been given a superior room he is all over you like a cheap coat.
Hotel is far away from the beach, with a climb to and from the hotel geared more towards a experienced mountain climber.
