KOS is a beautiful island and it would be a shame if people were put off from returning by the unfortunate treatment received at the Giakalis.
I am in total agreement with all the reviews already posted and more besides.
Unfortunately for us when we reviewed the hotel it was back in May and at that time no one had posted any negative comments regarding the complex, I would however suggest to anyone now who has already booked, if they can change their accommodation do so now as the experience at the Giakalis will dampen your holiday.
We tried to change our accommodation and spoke with the Youtravel reps, however as it was August all resorts were fully booked and no other accommodation was available.
We also made do with the complex and ate out most of the time, and never once had a bad meal outside of the resort. The Greek islands are lovely and the Greek people are also very friendly, unfortunately the owner of the complex was not of this ilk. He was very intimidating watching every move you made and likewise the clock when it came to serving the buffets (if that is what you call them).
The complex was pleasant but basic, but the all inclusive package was completely unacceptable, to the extreme that butter was not allowed with lunch and dinner, air cond within the restaurant made no difference, we were not allowed ice with our drinks, we could only receive another drink over the bar if we returned with an empty glass, I could go on.
However I will not go, but what we are doing is taking this matter further to the tour operator.
Please feel free to email with any further comments.
