If you are on a budget and don’t mind staying in a very basic hotel this is the place for you. Its location isn’t ideal (right next to a busy thoroughfare – very noisy at night) but is ideally situated for the beach and main bars and restaurants plus the bus stop is only a few yards away. Costas the barman is great and very nice and chatty on the 6.00pm – 2.00 shift. We also didn’t have a problem with security as some people have….although whilst we were there a woman did have her handbag pinched off the beach whilst she was having a bit of nookie.
My only bad comments are that this place could really do with being refurbished…some of the fixtures and fittings are right out the 70’s and are looking tired and worn. Considering these are self-catering apartments the kitchenette facilities are non-existent. The plug in grill kept turning itself off and there weren’t even spatulas or other cooking utensils. The bathrooms are very very small and if you are lucky enough to get hot water then you’ve done well.
There is only one cleaning lady who does really well considering there are so many rooms to clean but it is probably the dirtiest apartments I’ve ever stayed in. I had to ask for sheets to change the bed myself half way through our two week holiday and these could have been changed at least a couple more times before we left. Towels were changed on a similar rota and were filthy and definitely ready to be changed by this time, although she did empty the bins every three days or so which was a bonus.
Overall the location is great….I’d definitely come back to Hersonissos and particularly to the villages up behind the hotel (Kouloutafari, Piskapiano and Old Hersonissos) were all very pretty and some lovely restaurants and bars, Nostos Café in Piskapiano has really lovely, friendly bar staff.
I wouldn’t stay in the Vasso again but would definitely pop in to visit Costas who was great.
