All Inclusive is not usually our choice but the cost of this entire package was less than 2 flights to Cyprus (our preferred holiday destination). Considering the state of Greece and its people at the moment, the staff of this hotel are doing an excellent job. Some of them told us they would be out of work once the season ends. It amazed us how they managed to stay calm amid all the ill-mannered people (and there were a lot!) who were staying there.
The hire car sat in the hotel car park all week as the roads were a mess; there was no need to go anywhere as the beach and the weather were perfect. As far as "standard" rooms go ours was excellent; large, airy, large bathroom, big roof terrace complete with clothes hanger so there was no need to throw wet swimsuits and towels over the balcony. It was typical of a hotel built in the sixties, today's modern hotel rooms are much smaller.
The food was what we expected for an all-inclusive package. Lots of choice, excellent salads but the meat element was rubbish. However, for people who do not normally eat 3 meals a day we managed to gain rather a lot of weight! I have to say it was nice to get home to decent bottle of wine.
So, after our vey hectic summer it was the perfect place to unwind and personally I found the beach one of the best I have visied anywhere in Europe.
