We arrived at the very end of the "season" - last week of October. We had booked a "bungalow with sea view" but were given instead a standard hotel room with a sea view. The grounds of the hotel are lovley - many bungalows with semi-private pools, but we were told these were not available (hard to believe as the season was over and the hotel was quite empty). We were disappointed and suspect they were closing up certain sections of the hotel for the winder.
The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The food in the restaurant (half-board) was decent but not 5-star quality, the atmosphere in the restaurant is like a nice cafeteria. We ate breakfasts only in the hotel and had the rest of our meals outside the hotel. The town Hersonissos is close by, I imagine in summer it's very busy and a there's a lot going on. The old town Hersonissos is definitely worth a visit with some cute restaurants and music spots.
