Overall it was a spectacular trip. We visited Turkey, we took an excursion for the day to Samiopoula, we visited 15 beaches, we visited 10 to 15 different villages and the major towns on the island.
The hotel had a beautiful location, nice pool and its surroundings, beautiful gardens and a couple of nice beaches to swim and snorkel.
The staff were all extremely helpful from reception , cleaning, etc.
Since we stayed at Proteas for an entire 3 weeks we did see certain things that need to be addressed as well.
We barely had internet. In fact only 3 of the 21 days was the WIFI working at our room. Our friends vacationing with us had a technician in their room almost every two days but he couldn't fix the problem. Now it didn't bother me at all , but my friends staying beside our room found this unacceptable since the husband did need to work a few hours a day .
The breakfast was quite good but the waiters working there were very lost . We practically had to call them for coffee, milk etc. everyday. They were very slow in removing our plates so we were stacking them as we would eat. They also looked terrified of this man with a suit watching their every move. I know what would go on since I do speak Greek.This man in a suit was like a policeman instead of a host. You have to greet clients to their seats bring them coffee and milk right away , be friendly , chat and socialize to make the clients feel like they're important to them. Get to know the clients so they can return next year again.
The most troublesome part of all was that every Sunday the owners would show up for breakfast in the middle of the breakfast room and sit at a dining table with cutlery and beautiful glasses with cold coffees that weren't offered to us. As if they were Royalty!. To make me feel like I'm in awe since I'm in the same room with the classy owners. If I was the owner I wouldn't show off like that but instead I would introduce myself to the clients and sit with them and chat. This hotel has even more potential but management and owners need to be more apparent and social to the clients that pay their salaries. This was very disrespectful to all of us there.
I hope the owners see my comments .
