Once again what I can I say about this place - absolutely brilliant for a lovely relaxing holiday - just got back and we miss it already!
The apartments are simple, basic but nice and clean. Cleaners come every day apart from Sundays to sort the rooms out. and if there is something you need you only have to ask and the staff will do their best to get it. One of our bulbs blew in the room and this was replaced in minutes! Air conditioning is now chargeable and it was certainly required this time round with night time temperatures rarely going below 30 degrees.
The Hermes is situated at bus stop 13 - so bang in the middle of the Island and a bus trip only costs 1Euro60. In the evening it can be hard to get on the bus due to everyone heading from the beaches into town.We found that the water taxi was a much better way to get to town when this occurred from Nostos (Tzaneri?) Beach for 3 euros per person.
The staff at the Hermes are brilliant and work so hard especially George and Ioanna behind the bar. Vladimir and Vlatko in the kitchens probably produce the best food on the island. We found ourselves eating with Billie Piper, Laurence Fox and family one night - they certainly know where to eat - just wish I got my photo with her(!) A must to try is the Cheesy garlic bread, Feta in the oven, Tuna Dip, Village Meat and the Chocolate soufflé. Chrissa the owner is lovely and really looks after all her guests, nothing is too much for her and she always checks to ensure we are enjoying ourselves and to find out what we had been up to that day.
There is free wifi at the bar/pool area - and thankfully we were one of a few rooms who were close enough to the pool to get it!
We're already looking at prices for next year. If we don't do next year we'll certainly be there for 2016!!
