From making enquiries of Catherine on reception to booking out at the end of our holiday, this is one of the best hotel experiences I have had. So much kindness from all of the staff; where else would they re-charge your Kindle for you? Make special cocktails for you on your last night (complementary) Offer you the use of your room free of charge on your last day to shower etc as your flight is a late one? Giorgios on reception always had a ready smile and a twinkle in his eye. Gerasimos (the cocktail-maker!) was so willing and helpful to me with a short Greek lesson every day, and we wish his wife good luck when his first child is due in August. Lucas the chef amazed us with excellent dishes on the menu every evening and here's a secret - we always eat out on our last night as an extra treat on holiday but there was no point this week as the fare on offer at the Odyssey was sooooo good! And we will not forget Alessandros, our ever-present waiter who described dishes patiently to us, talked us into trying things we would not have chosen and was extremely pleasant and interesting to talk to. Last but not least the sweet waitress at breakfast - thankyou to you too. Our suite was a delight from the gold/brown decor to the jacuzzi bath and the button by the bed to open the room-width curtains to reveal another glorious day each morning. Everywhere was spotless during our whole stay and I noted that all staff members spoke better English than my Greek - even the charming cleaning ladies. This hotel is in the perfect situation right on the seafront, just a few minutes (very pleasant) walk from the village square with shops, tavernas, restaurants, car hire, GPO, chemist AND an ATM!!
If I have to find fault, it would be the toilet doors in public areas that do not lock and the absence of tea-making facilities in the room; my partner in common with many of the British, loves his cuppa on waking and one just before climbing into bed (plus many inbetween!) but that makes my overall score for the Odyssey 99/100!
