Me and 3 friends stayed here for a week in September. The room I shared was dirty when we arrived at 06.30 (hair and toothpaste in the sink!) we had no shower tray, just a hole in the floor, so had to shower stood on a grubby mat. Felt cleaner before getting in the shower than after! I understand showers in Greece aren't fantastic but this mat was disgusting! On the plus side we had a shower curtain, for what use it was! Toilet looked as if it had never been cleaned! Floors were filthy, the fridge was rusty and there were marks all over the walls. Our balcony was covered in food, smeared on the shutters, presumably from the people before us! The rooms are basic which I can cope with, I can't cope with them being unclean.
The pool was lovely and more than enough sun loungers.
Snack bar was nice, reasonably priced, €4 for a full English €3 for a toastie etc. the guy at the snack bar was great, the waitress was pretty miserable.
Reception were always pleasant, especially the girl on in an evening, a smile goes a long way!
Shame you can't say the same for the reps. Only happy when you're buying tickets from them and taking you to pre bars to get their commission. Their attitude stinks, unless ofcourse you're part of their 'click'. I was approached by a rep and told 'are you buying a ticket for tonight or what, I need to know now' - customer service at its best! My advice would be think carefully before investing €180 for a weeks worth of parties that you probably won't enjoy.
Overall I would not return to this hotel, laganas... Maybe. For me, the bad out ways the good.
