Stayed at the Driades for 2 weeks in July. When we arrived we were met by George the barman who was most welcoming. We had a masionette - room 206 (confused to this after booking a 1 bedroom apt but no complaints) this done us fine - basic but clean and comfortable. The pool is a good size and was... More

Great place & location. George the barman lovely as always. Stayed here previously with no problems and had a great holiday. Still had a nice holiday but very disappointed as Driades had overbooked & we were only told on arrival at 10pm. Had to stay in alternative accommodation for 2 nights. Still really love it here but wary of staying... More

Two lovely weeks....the apartment was very clean- we had one with the bedroom on the mezzanine floor. Bathroom was okay but not fantastic. Pool was one of the cleanest I've ever seen. Food in bar was good too. George and Eleni were lovely. We recommend George's bbq. Lots of excellent restaurants , didn't have a bad meal. Special mention for... More

Just come back after staying 10 days with the missus. When we first got there the minibus from the airport dropped us off right at the bottom of a big hill, google maps saved the day, and after a 10 minute walk lugging a suitcase up this hill in the pitch black we finally got there (Apparently, the minibus driver...

1. Booked transfers online. Coach from airport drops us off 300meter from the hotel, driver cant speak any english so no point asking whats going on. To be fair we had already expected this from reviews we read before booking and also the hotel road is so steep the coach would not have got up. Just so you know. 2.... More

Loved our stay at these apartments - as previously stated, the accommodation is fairly basic however given the price of the place it's hardly surprising. The pool and bar are lovely and we always found the staff super friendly and amenable. Definitely opt for the AC - it's worth every penny. Contrary to previous reviews, our apartments were cleaned on... More

The view from here is unbeatable as others insist. You can see panorama view from your tarrace and the bar. That's the unique point of Driades. However, several points of the room can be much improved: bad orientation of bed, wardrobe, mirror desk made it very difficult to walk around the bed. Minimum investment for building the bathroom. The shower... More

We just arrived home yesterday after a week at these apartments. What can I say? There is a fair trek up a dark unlit road when dropped of by your coach. Best tip, ditch Thomas Cook at the airport and get a taxi. Clean, modern and to the door for €40. We were given a very small apartment to begin... More
