The hotel is about an hours drive from the airport, and transfers were in a rather beaten up coach!
We were dropped at the end of the dusty drive, George the owner manically met every one and showed all to their rooms. Our room was on the top floor with a view of the sea through the trees, was well laid out and was spotlessly clean. The bath room was small, the shower was a tad cramped but
All the rooms had a full size fridge, kettle, cups and glasses, there was also a safe €3/4 per day, and air con €5 per day should you want them.
The pool area is lovely with plenty of sun beds, breakfast is served in the bar area and is a lack lustre continental affair...with a hot option daily....however this was put out at 8am with no heat source! Food is available all day, and is reasonably priced and presented.
Kalithea is about 5/10 mins walk but lacks atmosphere, we were told it was purpose built and caters for the Russian and Ukrainian holiday makers..with numerous fur shops, Afitos is around 20/30 mins walk and has a much nicer feel to it.. A cab fare back will set you back €5.
Private security guards were evident every evening.
The hotel is exclusively used by Thompson holidays, so all it's likely that all the residents are Brits..we were extremely lucky everyone was lovely.. very friendly. if you want a quiet week away in the sun it's a nice place to chill, if you prefer a more Greek flavoured holiday perhaps this wont be for you.
The rep called every day, selling day trips which I felt were expensive.
All in all it's a nice clean hotel, and a grand place to just chill out.
