We booked the hotel from otel.com for a long weekend in august 13.We knew about the existance of two hotels(iolida beach and village) so we booked a seaview apartment at Iolida BEACH hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel, the receptionist informed as that our room was on the 9th floor on the building on the other side of the street aproximately 300m from the beach.The receptionist with a patronising look said"its well known that the beach part of the hotel is not available for booking by individuals as it is booked by a tour operator for the whole season(all inclusive stay)". The beach view from our room was partly blocked by the freestanding elevator shaft and was messed by the uglyness of the buildings between our room and the sea.
Apart from the false advertising as a Beach hotel(meaning bordering the beach) the room was excellent, as was the service.The food from the menu was good but Breakfast was basic and unimaginative.
