We first arrived a bit apprehensive after we saw some of the reviews on here, but were pleasantly surprised by the whole hotel.. We were given two rooms next door to each other, both of three girls each. Our rooms were on the ground floor, which were not facing the pool yet, although people say to get the rooms facing the pool, our rooms were much better as we could get away with making a bit more noise. Also, we had the room right in the left hand side on the ground floor which meant we had a much bigger balcony around the corner so that no one who was next door to us could see us which made for a perfect pre drinking area.
Being teenage girls, we were quite messy yet the cleaners did a fantastic job and when we walked into our room it was always so clean. We would sleep in until quite late in the day, and they would come in at about half 12 and see that we were sleeping but would clean around us anyway quite happily.
The first day we woke up quite early so that we wouldn't miss out on any sun longers, yet there was more than enough sun loungers for everyone, and it was even very quite throughout the day. We would have lunch at the hotel which was no more than 6 euros each and filled us up quite nicely. It was also a really nice seating area.
The location could not have been more perfect as we were about 45 seconds walk to the supermarket, 2 minutes from the beach and about 1 minute from the main strip... yet the hotel is situated down a tiny alleyway which just allows it to be taken off the main road and is much much quieter.
We started off the week absolutely loving the staff and even called Antonio (who has some bad reviews saying he is a sleeze, which he is not) "Daddy" as when we had some trouble with some boys trying to come back to the hotel with us he would come over tell us to "Go inside girls" and then he would make them leave...... The only tiny negative we had of the whole holiday was the last night when we got back to the hotel around half 7/8am and wanted to jump into the pool... so we all slipped into the pool really quickly and got out, but Antonio did not like this and went crazy at us.. he shouted at us as if he really was our Dad, even grabbed my friends bra from the back as he tried to run away and then once we went back to the room we were talking on the balcony and he came and told us to go inside, which we did not do as he cannot tell us to go inside.. he also said that for jumping in the pool we would get a fine.
So, in the morning we spoke to the manager who laughed and said we would get no fine and that there is no closing times of the pool and it is fine to swim at that time of the morning (the manager also has a very very cute puppy called 'Amora')
The private beach is called 'Nisos' and if you say you are from Drossia Palms then they give you discount, yet one of our friends had a little (or rather big) flirt with the guy and managed to get us free beds all week long, although they only charge 2.50 euros for a bed.... the private beach is the best private beach on the whole beach and is right next to pleasure beach were loads of the big events take place...
The hotel's restaurant which is at the corner of macdonalds wasn't as great as it looks, we went there for our final meal and was a bit dissapointed, but still had a very nice atmosphere and very friendly staff
We highly recommend the paint party at pleasure beach, the flying fish on the beach, and hiring quad bikes as they are so much fun... do not hire from hermes though as they are the 'Malia Mafia' but take a walk up the strip and ask all the quad bike shops as the prices do vary.
Air conditioning was only 40 euros and is a necessity and so worth it!
All in all, us girls had the best holiday we have ever had and would very much recommend this hotel !!!!
Ground floor rooms have bigger balconies, especially the one on the furthest left
