Stayed in the Asteria mid June 2013. Had a very enjoyable holiday and the hotel is great. It is geared for the German market which isn't really a problem although at times it seemed they got served before you which could be a little frustrating if you're very hot & thirsty (especially at the pool bar & sometimes the beach bar) & just want to be served a drink! Was more of a problem at mealtimes there. May possibly be to the staff having a better knowledge of the the German language then English. Saying that, the majority of the staff were very helpful & friendly so wasn't a massive problem.
All inclusive here at the moment is exceptional. Included was 24 hour bar (including named brand spirits & all cocktails!); re-stocked daily room fridge with beer, soft drinks, water, juices; towels for pool/beach; free wi-fi; room service for 12-6am; ice creams & cakes all day; sunloungers on beach. And a nice touch is tall drinks fridges even by the beach!
Pool is lovely & never seemed to get over busy. Beach & sea are gorgeous too. Was a little busier but you always seemed to get a lounger.
Down side was that our room was at the front of the hotel & this road is busy, even at the early hours, with traffic & noise from a couple of bars. Could still hear it with patio doors shut. Also it's a long walk to the restaurants & facilities from here. Apparently the British tourists are put there according to a couple of British guests I spoke to! Not sure how true that is though. Would have asked to be moved but we had three rooms between us (with teenagers who loved this place) so didn't want to be split as these were together. The other downside is the time it can take to be served at the pool & beach bars at busy times.
Saying that I would go back to this hotel again as the good points outway the few bad :D
