We stayed from 18th - 25th September, our first holiday without our children now they are 18 & 21. The hotel exceeded all our expectations in most respects given the price.
By Greek standards everything was clean and worked well enough, but exchanging your passports for a tv remote control that will enable you to watch BBC World News in your room keep us amused for the whole holiday. cannot sleep? Watch this channel and you're guaranteed to nod off! The cooking facilities are basic, so prepare to eat out.
You visit this hotel for sunshine and location, not room amenities and it is not suitable for children over 11. The youngsters really seemed to enjoy the entertainment, ( daily face painting) and facilities and although the constant noise of both the bar and Thomson reps playing different music simultaneously was annoying you can live with it.
Our only complaint was that once "Katy Perry" burst into song from the entertainment suite at 7pm there was no let up until 11.30pm when the reps went home. Except for Sunday 23rd September when alcohol fueled "entertainment" went on until 3am and only ended when the hotel staff called the reps in to diffuse the situation. We enjoy a drink like anyone, but in a family resort there is no need for such behavior, luckily we headed off to the local restaurants each evening.
The wild dogs are very friendly and bark at the "looky looky" men, who are very easy to deter with a polite "no thank you".
We had a lovely time, a fantastic holiday for the ridiculously cheap price we paid.
