Stayed ten nights over 06/07/13-16/07/13 and what a find.
Firstly I must say we booked this place because it was cheap. It wasn't reasonable, it wasn't a good deal, it was CHEAP!
So for value for money it is worth every penny.
My partner was 7 months pregnant and we requested a ground floor apartment which we got. IT WAS HUGE! there was a little telly on the wall (never used) and some basic but practical furnishings. A decent kitchen with everything we needed and a little porch where we sat and I drank Mythos whilst she had a freddo.
The location is amazing, on the main high street a minutes walk to the little beach (which is the better beach) and all the lovely tavernas. We ate out everyday (well we were on our holidays) Makis taverna is probably the best. Also there is a taverna on the other side of the small beach that did a great lunch (loads of small bits and stuff good for dipping). On a personal note I did make good use of the local kebab shop and the young lad that runs it is a top bloke and the food is VERY cheap and its not like the dirty donner meat we get in the UK.
Panormo is a great place for a RELAXING break. There is not a night club or any need for one. We spent most the week surrounded by Greeks. If you want to chill this is the place.
I must give a fond mention to Barbara (Varvara) who works at the hotel. She was brilliant in her role as host and politely laughed at all my rubbish jokes. She is a real asset to the Iliana.
I would stay there again any time, but next time I would be tempted by more than just the price.
