Irene village saved our holiday!! We booked our package holiday with low cost holidays just before it has gone to administration. We paid a fortune for our 'perfect' holiday and we didn't know anything about low cost until we arrived to Hersonissos and the transport company informed us that the reservation has been cancelled. He was so kind and called the hotel to check if our reservation is still alive, but been told that it has been cancelled too. After spend a whole night at the airport trying to figure out what to do. We found Irene village online, got in a taxi, straight to the reception and ask if they have any sort of room available. They were very helpful, started to make phone calls and the manager said - 'dont worry i will help you'. We staid at Irene village 8 nights and we didn't regret anything or would swap it for the original booked 5***** hotel. The food not the best and quite the same all the time, but the staff will help you to enjoy your holiday!! Also you don't need to select the all inclusive option. The rooms are cleaned regularly and change the bedding and towels every other day. All I can say is you get what you pay fore. For this price you cannot expect 5***** service.

Arrived at this apartment block eventually as our taxi driver could not find it because there was no sign .When we booked in we were told that we had to pay extra for the A/C , when we investigated this apartment it stated that all rooms had A/c, no mention of a surcharge. Let's get to the nitty gritty ... Not enough sun beds , not enough tables in the shade , the pool was dirty with a green scum line all the way round. Now to the drink Beer not cold and too gassy , wine un drinkable , now the food....where shall I begin Breakfast ,boiled eggs, processed meat and cheese, bread,marmalade and cerials , Lunch some form of meat and chips everyone and again and over cooked veg , courgette, Aubergine ,onions boiled in lashings of oil , I will refer to this as slops from now on, evening meal, slops followed by slops and potatoes . They use out side catering so everything is brought in and left in boxes cooking producing world class slops. The complex was fine and rooms not too bad , basic cleaning , we had to ask for toilet paper and towels . Did I mention that the slops were part of the all inclusive . I had the runs twice and had to eat out.

The Irene village hotel is a 3 star hotel with a 5 star welcome,every thing is clean and the staff cannot do enough for you,also Alex and Mike will keep you entertained at the bar for as long as you care to drink, The hotel is basic, and the food slightly repetative (if your looking for a full English or chips every meal try staying at home) but the food is tasty and plentyfull, you will not go hungry or thirsty. also remember the amount you pay here is close to room only so you can eat out if you want to. If you go in September or May, keep an eye out for the mad welshman,Elfed and his wife Sue and their friends Peter and Dianna. they are worth a hello. teifion swansea

Contrary to the experience of the last reviewer, we had a great holiday at Irene Village. The food wasn't great but everything else was lovely. The apartments were absolutely spotless. We are English and were never made to feel unwelcome, quite the opposite in fact. We will definitely go back!

Have just got back from 10 days at Irene Village.... loved the apartment and the complex itself, but the "All-Inclusive" food was an absolute joke!!! Cereal or bread for breakfast, salad for lunch and salad with a different coloured mush for dinner EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! No snacks available EVER and only limited drinks from 8am - 10pm. Definitely felt very unwelcome by the owners..ALL the site/local information was in Dutch or german, even the books and games to borrow. The first couple of days we tried to make friends with the Staff, but were quickly made to feel insignificant...to the point that several times when waiting to be served, we were totally ignored in favour of the Dutch clientelle ( no offence to you guys - not your fault!!) Eventually we spent the rest of our time off - site at the very friendly Star Beach complex over the road. A shame really as we booked ALL INCLUSIVE so we could have a romantic, lazy holiday with everything we need on the doorstep..... PAH!! Shame on you Irene Village...we WILL be returning next year....to STAR BEACH, where every day we were made to feel welcome.

where do i start we have just come back from irene village hersonissos having been there 2 weeks we booked this so called all-inclusive 2 weeks with lowcost holidays .before we booked my husband rang lowcost to ask about the all-inclusive in the hotel irene village to be told that there where snacks icecream and all drinks as we were taking our two youngest children aged 8 and 14 we wanted to be sure it was all in the price, lowcost told us that yes there are snacks,yes there are icecreams and all drinks which are all included in our price, having used lowcost last year with out a hitch we took what they said as gospel and booked our 2 weeks all-inclusive there. omg what a huge mistake upon arrival at 10.45pm greek time we had missed any kind of drink on the all-inclusive but i knew the all-in finished at 10pm and we had had a long day so got our bands and our key and went sleep ,the next morning we went down for breakfast which was cheap cerial bread jam peachs yoghurt salad and some kind of meat we was soon to find out that it was exactly the same every day of our stay no variation at all, we then noticed the drinks what were on the all-inclusive which was tea coffee fizzy cola,lemon,orange,hot chocolate and as for alcohol that was 1 type of beer,brandy,raki or wine the meals at dinner and evening where unedible it was that bad we ate out nearly every mealtime costing us an absalute fortune ontop of what we paid for the holiday there was only 2 maybe 3 choices so if u dint like it u could only have bread with no butter and salad!! totally disgusted they try and call this all-inclusive its more like fullboard!!!!! there was no snacks at all!!! the icecreams had to be paid for at 2euro 50 cent per icecream ,they do not like the english there we had a group of dutch 20 year old lads constantly picking on my 8 year old son who was trying to learn to swim they thought it would be fun to pick on him for nothing!!!! the complex itself is pretty all in whitewash and clean and the apartment was nice and big with 2 balconys it got cleaned every 3rd day and the cleaners work so hard from early till late one morning it was the cleaners who had to put breakfast out as the managers hadnt bothered to turn up to do it themselves and every1 was complaining.the pool is deffo not big enough for the amount of ppl who stay here so thank god for starbeach which was a free water park over the road which is where we went everyday the kids totally loved it there i will NEVER go back to irene village and am in the process of complaining to lowcost for totally lieing and misleading us when booking our holiday!!!!!THE ONLY THINGS GETTING ALL-INCLUSIVE HERE ARE THE ANTS THE MOZZYS AND THE SPIDERS!!!!!

We stayed here from the 21st July till the 31st July 2013. Can't fault it from the minute we arrived and were met by Alex and Mike, A nice spacious apartment that its cleaned every 2 days. Food is brought fresh for each meal time and you do get choice but not enough for my fussy daughter and no chips!!! Star beach is 5 minutes away and a good choice of beaches further on. Central for the shops and town for meals with plenty of choice. Ignore the negative reviews, not 5 star but friendly and good value for the money. I would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here with my sister and her family from the 23-30th July and what a lovely stay I had. Wasn't sure what to expect as there were a few negtive reviews on here, but was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and very clean (maids came every other day to change bedding and towels). The staff were excellent. Mike, Alex and the rest of the staff could not do enough for you. Had a cold glass of beer waiting for me for when I arrived. The hotel is opposite Star Beach so about a 5 minute walk to go there, or there is plenty of beds around the pool. Only thing that I would say let it down a bit was the food. I enjoyed most of it, but there wasn't much for fussy kids to eat and my niece lived on pasta and cake for most of the holiday. Other than that I could not fault the hotel at all and would definitely return again!

We were booked at the hotel by our Greek agent. We were told that it is a 4 stars self-catering hotel. The self-catering part is right, the 4 stars not so. The "hotel" is located at the edge of Chersonisos, which means that you need to walk about half an hour to town or take a taxi. The place is filthy; the shower did not have a door closing it or a curtain – all the water spelt out to the floor. The bathroom had no soap at all. Only 1 roll of toilet paper and towels that have seen better days. The beds were rock stiff. The windows had no anti-insects nets, so we were eaten by mosquitos each night. The air-conditioner works on a separate remote control which you have to pay for as an additional service. The room was on the street, so we had to choose staying with the curtains closed and suffocating from the heat. Or, opening the curtains and forget from our privacy. The only thing that did work was the small refrigerator in the kitchenette. There was no soap to wash the dishes, no kettle to boil water – only electric cookers, so if we wanted to make coffee or tea, we would have to put a pot of water to cook. Of the 2 nights that we stayed there (before running away), we had 2 encounters with cockroaches. The public areas of the place are not really safety: the stairs are steep and have no railing to grab on to. There is hardly any light during the night, so walking out can be risky – falling down the stairs. The pool apparently wasn't clean. My friend went in for an hour and later on had a skin infection. There is no reception or a place that you can get information. Everything is run by the poolside (that's where you can get free wifi too). The bartender is also the hotel clerk and the cook and the cleaner and… well, everything. To conclude: worst experience ever. As my friend said – even in the most remote hostels in South America, I didn't get such a bad feeling and wasn't eaten up by mosquitos like that. We recommend: 1. carefully choose your Greek agent – ours didn't give a dam about us, just left us to rot. 2. Keep clear from the Irene Village (unless you come with your camping gear). We will not be back and we will not use the services of the Greek agent again.
