This hotel, has never been, nor never will be a 5 star.
We booked a double with Garden View, and put in a twin, when we went back to reception we were told that Greek double beds are not big enough for 2 adults! When we laughed and said we wanted what we had booked we were told that the hotel was full... it wasn't, they just closed down parts of it as it was the end of the season.
We moved the next day, to a double room, with no view! and a standard double bed. Plenty of room for 2 adults!
Air con only worked during the day, was boiling at night times
Only one plug socket
Holes in the sheets, which weren't changed in a 6 nights
Breakfast - wow, left a lot to be desired, and evening meal, not impressive, and everything was tasteless, completely bland, and lacking any imagination
Towels perfect size for children
Beach - hotel beach and had to pay 3 Euros for the privilege
Pools, salt water and so heavy with chemicals you couldn't enjoy it
The noise that came from the bins being emptied at 7:30 (outside our room) was enough to wake the dead
Housekeeping, making massive amounts of noise from 8am, and if the do not disturb sign isn't on your door, you will get woken up!
It's great for couples over 50, as that's the youngest age group, not 30's!!
Late check out, 8 Euros an hour, even out of season, and after a room mix up!
Good bus stop outside to get to the town
The staff are OK, nothing spectacular
