After reading several negative comments regarding over booking of rooms we e-mailed the hotel a few days before we travelled for reassurance but we did not receive a response, but on arrival we had no problems and were taken to our 1bedroom apartment (121) which was perfect for our needs (2adults+2children). We were right next to the pool, close to the bar and had a sea view!
During our 2 week stay we were very impressed with the high standards of cleanliness both in our room and in communal areas, the cleaners work very hard here! Our room was cleaned every day except Sunday, towels changed daily and sheets every 3 days.
We were concerned that travelling in August and reading previous reviews that it would be very crowded at the pools, but this was not the case. On several occasions we had either of the pools to ourselves and at its busiest it was never crowded.
We attended the Greek theme night which was put on by the hotel, buffet food was really good with a good selection of traditional foods on offer, and the dancing was great.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis which I would recommend, breakfast was served from 8-10am and there was a good variety of cooked and continental choices.
The only reason this hotel does not get 5 stars from us is due to the level of service provided. We had to wait a long time to even get given a menu for drinks at the bar, and then the order took even longer. For this reason we did not eat in the restaurant Valentino, although the food did look nice. Although service was very slow, most of the staff were very friendly.
Oscar is situated in a great location on the edge of agia marina, with access to the beach just over the road.
We were expecting free wifi but this is not the case, 3€ for 1hour and then the signal was not strong enough to use in our room. Air con was expensive!
Overall we had a lovely holiday here and can't fault the accommodation.
