Well, the overall stay was ok. We were there for 2 weeks all inclusive and was surprised to find that although 4 star hotel, you were not allowed to take towels from your room to the swimming pool area, you couldnt hire any either, you had to go 'buy them'. There is a shop attached to the hotel where there is a very grumpy man who doesnt speak English - we had to buy the towels from there as after trekking all the way up and down the shops in the town, he was the cheapest - and boy didnt he make us feel small - in his Greek language but you got the gist! The rooms are ok. The shower water takes forever to go down the bath in the morning or evening and sometimes the water was not hot. The food was ok, as we were there for 2 weeks we had the same food twice, they have the same every week! Also the evening entertainment was lacking. There were no kettles in the room either, so if you wanted a cup of tea or coffee you had to wait until 8 am when breakfast started and you couldnt get any hot water anywhere after midnight. If you were all inclusive you had to wear a yellow band round your wrist at all times and you were only allowed drinks from the bottom shelf - in plastic cups!!! The staff however were great especially Iglika who ran the pool bar and the girls on reception and also the girls who clean the rooms. Sheets and towels changed twice a week. Also the mattresses are SOOOOO hard, we did managed to get softer pillows after the first night but no joy with the mattress. There were 4 internet computers to use which you had to pay for but two were out of order and the other two were soooooo slow that the money just ticked away and you didnt actually get to where you wanted to go in time.
I would have to say that I would not go back to this hotel, I would rent an apartment and go self catering - the food isnt THAT expensive. Saying that, met some nice people there, the pool was ok and the area was ok.
