“What you make it!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Holiday'd here with my friend in August. Room was a good size and clean. Bedding, towels changed every other day and if you asked at reception could get more clean towels if needed. Staff friendly, reception staff always on hand and very accommodating. Food was ok, although not 'greek' however was fine for the week. No British guests but this did not spoil our holiday as majority of very friendly. There were several groups of teenagers but they were no trouble in fact were curtious to 'two 'middle aged ladies'! Went on a trip to Spinalonga ...lovely scenery, Plaka was fab! Beach although small at Hersonissos was lovely and the sea warm and inviting. The Greek people as ever..the best!

Hotel grounds:nice fruit trees flowers and grapes growing everywhere two pools.
Apartments/rooms very small and a little dated your bed may be in the kitchen!
Staff:Quite nice and helpful (most of them).
Food:Edible not much choice,only one choice of desert for whole week, breakfast awful soft drinks beer wine self service.
Location:a ten min walk from main strip up a steep hill.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who wasn't eastern European as we were the only British in the hotel we had no one to talk to and all the others were gangs of drunk Russian and Dutch teenagers who of course were as rude and aggressive as possible staring and blatantly talking about you and growling at our children and shouting and screaming till 5.30 it would of been quite nice if the guests were different.

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and was what we expected for the 3 star rating. Porto Village was nice enough and although I know a few people had issues with their apartments ours was clean and spacious. It was basic but had what we needed with fresh towels and sheets every other day. There were chips for breakfast, but there was also eggs, meat, ham, salads, fruits, cereals, greek yoghurt, bread, jam and other bits. Lunch and dinner was much the same but personally I thought there was enough to choose from for the duration of our stay which was 10 days. Our only grumble is that the all inclusive finished at 22.30 and the evening bar staff would only allow you one drink at a time and you had to take the glass back up to have a refill. The pool area was pleasant and my children (13 and 11) had a fab time. The staff seemed very helpful and polite. The majority of people were dutch but there were some british too. We found the dutch to be very nice and spoke good english. If you are staying with children I would recommend a visit to Aqua World just a 5 minute walk to the bottom of the hill. It cost 20 euros for 2 adults and 2 children to visit, but once you have paid this initial cost you could revisit as many times as wanted during your stay. Although it is a small aquarium they had a lot there and also reptiles which you could interact with. Star Beach is another good place to visit with children and it only cost 8 euros to have passes for the water slides. All in all a very good holiday.

Room was dirty and very outdated. We expect basic in Greece but it was appalling. Cob webs all over the place. Holes in sheets and towels. Was told All inclusive ends at 22.30hrs even though brochure and website state 2300hrs. Spirits included ouzo, wine & raki. All other spirits had to be paid for. Only one drink allowed at a time. We had to take our empty glass back to bar to get it refilled! The barman on during evening was very rude and had his dutch favourites. Food was edible and sometimes quite tasty but repetitive. Chips and cakes for breakfast! Pool area was ok apart from a lot of the concrete floor tiles & wooden decking were broken
and dangerous with nails sticking out. We never saw the pool area cleaned, although, every evening the handyman would pour a bottle of bleach/chlorine in the pool, which produced an horrendous smell! Entertainment was Greek dancing once per week. Its a hotel full of Dutch, Russian and Germans, who were all very rude. All in all we were very disappointed. We did not let it spoil our holiday and still had a good time, but I would never go back!
