Our amakk party of three were looking forward to staying at this hotel having read the reviews, but even after paying up front in full my hosts decided this was not the hotel for us. Nowhere in any of the rviews or hotel's own descriptions was it stated that this hotel is totally unsuitable for peole with mobility problems (bad knees, hip replacements, back problems) or heart problems. This is because the hotel is built on the steep side of a hill, with uneven cobbled paths and dangerous stone steps with no hand-rails connecting the various levels and terraces.
So our rooms were at the bottom of the hill and it was a frightening journey down by foot, and and even worse journey up to reception to say we could not stay. Ok for youn g, fit people who do not mind daily climbs back and forth to the pool, restaurant and reception, but bad news for anyone with physical problems as above, or even people with young children in buggies.
I feel strongly that the hotel have not been honest in any of their literature or photographs. Fortunately, we were able to find another hotel, on the beach itself, a five* deluxe boutique hotel which was truly out of this world, and was cheaper than the Temenos, with its snooty unhelpful receptionist, who I believe was part of the owner's family.
Avoid unless you are 100% physically active!!
