Arrived at Lyda late into the night, the guy who was on reception was helpful, but made no mention of where breakfast would be served or at what time.
Got to the room which was very dated. The beds! Oh my god the beds, quite possibly the worse bed I have ever slept in, the pillows were awful and dirty. The bathroom had mould on the ceiling which, buy the looks of it had never been attended to!
The food was bland, we have a 5 year old who we struggled to find things for her to eat, and things that she wanted to eat.
If you want bacon for breakfast forget it at this hotel, the only day I thought they had it, turned out to be fried ham from the night before.
The bar staff didn't make you feel welcome at all, the guy with the bald head and big nose (Stefanos) I think was only interested if you had a skirt and long legs. It would helpful if they actually smiled when serving.
The pool areas are kept clean and the sun beds are plentiful.
This hotel is definitely not a 4* place, 2 at most.
Would we go back, maybe but it would need to have a major revamp, and staff training about smiling.
Russians rule the roost here, rude and arrogant, would pile food on plates, then just leave masses amounts of food on the plate.
The couple we were with also had to stay one night in a very sub standard room due to some technical reason (what we Brits call a cock up)
There must be better hotels in the area than this one, look long and hard before choosing here.
The entertainment was pretty poor for a place of this size and number of guests, Bingo, and loud music which was the same every single night.
