We too were attached to Riviera Travel as the itinerary ticked all the boxes we wanted to visit. Our experience of Kaos- perhaps a name-change would sound more attractive to potential English guests, was satisfactory & we were well pleased with most of the facilities on offer. Everyone remarks on the wide sweep of the illuminated steps down to the really attractive pool area , shame there is no access to the sea . Our room on the ground floor was more than adequate for our 3-night stay, rooms clean & comfortable, but totally agree with the comment re the out-of-reach wardrobe; do the people who design these places actually get to live in them ? but shower-room excellent. We not too keen on some of the food offered; buffet breakfast was OK , but I do have one major gripe & this is it. Travelling mid-autumn & during day-light hours noticing the vast acreage of orchards, also being aware of the well-known fertile properties of volcanic lava, I would have expected to be offered a wide range of fresh fruit at mealtimes. Not so, all we had was a choice of tinned peaches, pineapples & horrendous fruit cocktail which went out of fashion just after WW2. Dinner was pretty much the same although I did spot an apple & a grossly unripe peach which is an insult & needs attention. Meals were only OK & II did comment on this to our tour-manager but was fobbed off with some excuse which was forgettable in its ambiguousness. Maybe I'm making too big a thing of this but I expected far more from holidaying in Southern Italy during harvest time. Having said all that we were pleased with our 3-days there; the visit to the Valley of the Temples being a serious highlight. Decent tour-manager, bit too much info sometimes though Michelle, but coach-driver Angelo was brilliant, always felt safe & was always there to offer a hand when necessary on disembarking. We would also agree with the comment re out-of-town location, confined to barracks is a bit strong but unless you enjoy propping up a bar post-dinner, then maybe not for you. Barmen in the cocktail-bar a bit heavy on the whisky in our Gaelic Coffee, but I'm not complaining. We then moved on to Excelsior Palace in Taormina. for the remainder of our holiday.
