Come to Hersonissos every year but first time staying here. Nice hotel though bedheadboard could do with updating as bits of faux leather peeling off. Beds comfy staff fantastic with exception of older barman whom I’ve yet to see smile. Food is okay and perfectly acceptable though gets cold quickly so be prompt to meals okay selection and plenty of fresh veggies.
Pool is lovely, bathroom small but functional. Probably would not book again unless headboards re furnished and better selection of hot food which we get when we stay at our usual hotel for the same price.

Not a bad hotel but wouldn’t return. Breakfast is cold every day, dinner got better during the week but if you go within an hour of lunch or dinner closing then don’t expect anything to be replenished. Beds where comfy and we loved the balcony but the bathrooms were awful and we saw the cleaners once in our 1 week stay. Sun on pool only for about 5 hours and not enough tables and chairs to sit in the evening for a drink. Didn’t ruin our holiday as we are not too fussy but I wouldn’t return. Plus side it’s very close the beach and bars and restaurants and Hersonissos is very pretty and every is so nice in town.

Stayed for a week during peak season. We had a Great stay, perfect location for beach, shopping and nightlife. Located on a very busy street above a very busy pub but we didn't hear anything from our room. (Was second floor at back). Pool was small but very clean. Food was nice, the breads were so soft and fresh and the desserts were outstanding. Staff very friendly and worked so hard. Constantly cleaning and tidying. Our room was small but adequate and clean.

The experience at this hotel has been below any expectations.
I recommend to avoid this accommodation at any cost.
Our flight was cancelled and we needed to book a hotel last minute. Based on the pictures which were provided by the hotel we expected something which at least would have been decent.
The room was filled with smoke smell as well as mould. There are no smoke detectors in the room which may be why people smoke in the room.
The telephone also did not work which is a legal issue as if you require any emergency support there’s no way of contacting reception.
The toilet was rusty and the sealing trimming was falling down as well as the frame on the mirror.
The mattress had brown stains on it and the sheets where not clean with faeces looking stains on it.
The air conditioning filter was thick with dust as well as the top of the unit being very scummy and dusty. We woke up the first morning sniffling and coughing due to the amount of dust in the room; we have dust allergies which usually become severe without medication, we vacated the room as soon as we woke and didn’t return until late night just to avoid the unhygienic state of the place.
The balcony door does not close securely meaning a forceful push could lead entry into the room. As for the safe, it is really only enough for small items not for a standard sized laptop of which we had to carry around most of our items due to the size restriction on the safe.
The cleaner walked in our room at 9 in the morning despite the “do not disturb” sign being up and not even knocking before coming in.
There is tragic music playing extremely loud from around 9am in the morning which is also an outdated playlist considering there is a mixture of different aged customers staying.
Overall Pela Maria is outdated, no money is invested into upgrading the buildings exterior and especially interior, they say “ you pay for what you get” but no one should have to pay for a facility and avoid it the entire time they are staying.
We do not want a pathetic reply from this hotel justifying their excuse for every point made in this review. Instead please take into consideration the feedback you’re receiving especially from these honest rating to better your facility.

False advertisement,the pictures are nothing like what they have advertized. Theres no shower curtain,so the room gets drenced, had to ask nu.erous time for bath towels and fresh bed sheets(apparantly it only gets cleaned every 4 day) there is only 1 key to the bedroom, so we have been told me and my friend have to stay together. Me and my friend managed to get seperated last night and my insulin was in my fridge in the bedroom, he refused to let me in and said there is no other key! I even translated what i needed to do and he shrugged his shoulders! The bar staff are lovely but reception staff are disgraceful

This hotel offers very good service for the price. There is all inclusive options that are very convenient and efficient. Dinner is plentiful with lots of options, there is also lunch and breakfast served. The staff are very friendly and all in all this hotel is excellent value for money. It is very centrally located with lots of shops around the corner and across the street so you won’t be in need of anything that is a long distance away. Hotel manager is very attentive to the needs of the guests. I recommend this place if you want something convenient and comfortable that is centrally located.

I love this place, the staff here is very kind, always when we needed to warm up food or water for our kids, they didn’t have any problems with that. Rooms are clean and I think every second day they clean our rooms, change sheets and change towels for new one. Food is really tasty and u can choose from large quantity and type. And location is the best. 🤍

Dear Mr./Ms. Although, our hotel is very close to the beach, it is not directly by it, therefore we do not have a bar by the beach. On the other hand we have a beautiful bar by the pool and DownTown Bar which is one of the most famous bars in Hersonissos! If you would like to book a beach hotel, our sister hotel, Elmi Suites Beach Hotel has Cyrrus Beach Bar and Porto Greco Beach Bar and 3 beautiful beaches in front of it! Best regards, Michalis Aerakis Online Advisor

Dear Mr Stephen, We are sorry for our late reply. During your stay, have you tried to contact the hotel's manager and express them your questions? He would be very happy to assist you and clarify any question you might had. The all-inclusive program does not mention that in the list of drinks neither cocktails nor branded drinks were included. Our room types included only standard and pool view rooms. Have yo booked a pool view room and not gotten one? Have you asked the reception why have you been allocated to a different room type than the one you booked? We could easily help you if you had come into contact.
