We were convinced that this would be a good addition to our itinerary since it offered on-site laundry facilities, a highly-touted chef, and every amenity we look for. Problems from the start:
they no longer offer laundry service (if you have more than a day (we didn't), they'll send it over the uncle's hotel); chef Suzanna is in Australia, so no dinner offered; TV picture was wavy and the sound so low that we could not hear it - they had the TVs set very low by the manufacturer and cannot adjust them; refrig didn't work and they wouldn't give us more than a cupful of ice ("if I give you any more, I'll run out"!); cheesy shower door that didn't close; worst coffee and nondescript breakfast. To top it off, we were there on the eve of Greek Orthodox Easter, the night the local kids shoot off cherry bombs and other fireworks across the street from the hotel until the wee hours - our calls to the front desk were not answered.
