We were staying as a couple for a 4 day trip for a wedding and were there with mostly Greek friends. We stayed in a suite.
The welcome was laid back and although not overwhelmingly friendly was good enough.
This hotel is immediately opposite the Princess hotel and you can walk to the beach there and its restaurants in five minutes. This makes up for the poor breakfast in this hotel and absent kitchen otherwise (the pool food here is mediocre at best). It is also well situated for other beaches.
The room was comfortable and while you do not get a 5 star service nor do you pay for it. Indeed I think the service was better than I would expect for the very reasonable tariff. The room was spacious and clean with a large, clean bathroom and a second toilet. The bed was comfortable and the view was over the pool and sea from the balcony. The complimentary wifi worked on the balcony but not in the room.
The pool is small but clean and pleasant. The lobby is also comfortable and there are two computers there with internet if you need them.
My only complaint was that when we asked for a late checkout by a few hours in the afternoon we were told it would cost a 50% of the tariff. Nobody had booked the room for that night so it was too much - we declined and used the pool showers and changing room to wash up before our flight. This was actually fine.
In spite of the lack of flexibility over the room extension I would happily stay here again as it was a reasonable price, comfortable, clean and well situated.
