We booked our holiday at the Scorpios through late deals/Thomson and certainly got value for money as a result. Paying full price we may have been a little less satisfied.
The complex itself is small and intimate, spotlessly clean and very well maintained throughout. It is run in a professional manner.
Staff - competent and efficient, polite but didn't get the sense of ' nothing too much trouble' that others mention. But no complaints either
Food - didn't try the breakfast for 8 Euro a head so can't comment. Served food from a limited menu from the snack bar, a little expensive and a little bland , okay in an emergency
Food nearby - two tavernas less than 100 yards from the hotel (turn right) a further two tavernas ten minutes walk from the hotel (turn left) , all serving decent food
The processing plant- yes it's next door to a processing plant, but You can here it from inside the hotel complex - not an issue for us
Monolithos - very quiet and isolated , if that what you want no problem but it really is quiet.
The pool - more of a splash pool really, small but fits the bill, always had access to sunbeds whilst we were there (last week of July)
Bus service - every two hour to Kamari or THira at 2.50 per head, they will also run you to the Airport at the end of your stay for 10euro, so hat may save you on transfer fees, Monolithos is only a mile or two from the Airport so taxi should be no more than 15 euro
Flight pass over the hotel on take off only, perhaps 6-8 times a day, not a problem
The rooms - spotlessly clean and very spacious, beds comfortable, decent showers, excellent free air conditioning - the self catering aspect however was very poor indeed, two ring hob and a kettle and that pretty much it, however there is nowhere really to plug in the kettle safely, you end up placing it on the floor so you need to be careful if you have toddlers with you
Car Hire - recommend you have a car if staying in Monolithos , plenty of companies around and very reasonable
Mini market next to hotel sells pretty much everything you need and is not ridiculously expensive.
Overall this is a great place but be aware that it really is quiet and the self catering aspect is very poor, if your happy with this then I highly recommend it
