“It was nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We stayed at hotel for 14 days in last week in August and first in September 2012. The room was clean, personal were nice, food was ok - chef was the best ;) All tough next I would prefer only breakfast because for 14 day you are fed up with only one kitcgen tough. But this is our problem because we choose to have dinners too. But anyway - stil the food and its varity was great.
Swimming pool was ok - the problem was the almost constat shadow - sun barrely reach pool area.
The only complaint I have is internet - wi-fi. Almost every cafe, bar or restaurant has it own free wi-fi. So in this century I believe that also hotel should offer free wi-fi, at least at reception or bar area.

hi, i was at Glaros hotel at 22/8/12 for 4 days and it was excellent! first the hotel is like in the pic! Second the staff was very nice, and the food was good! the best thing that i liked was the location! 7 minutes walk from the parties area! And a minute's walk from the shopping center!
For people who come to vacation, love the sea and partying is great.
Really recommend :)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

I dont know is this affected by the crisis that hit the Greece, but my experience was a bit different than majority of others. FIrst of all when we entered the hotel which by the way has a beatuifuly looking lobby and the outside of the hotel is pretty nice looking, in my opinion one of the best looking in that area.
But what dissapointed me was the welcome from the reception staff. They seemed quite stressed and unfriendly. We had a pretty long trip with 3 hours of sleep the day before so it wasn't exactly what we needed/expected...
The room was nice looking and clean but the bed consisted of two connected single beds with wheels so they kept traveling on the opposite sides of the room while we were sleeping.
TV was 15" with a bad signal, which is rather unusable. Bathroom rather small.
Pool is looking very nice but too small and you have to put your towel on a sunbed pretty early in the morning or else don't expect to have a sunbed by the pool for the day.
Restaurant had nice breakfast selection, but the dinner was varying by the day.
One more annoying thing is that the restaurant isn't large enough for the capacity of this hotel so the tables are connected or pretty close and you have to search for your table every time.
Restaurant staff was ok, with a few exceptions: eg. unappropriate comments or rather unprofessional comments.

The first room we stayed in was so small, with 3 pf us we could not even move. We got upgraded to a larger room which made a world of a difference.
The staff here are all amazing, very helpful, welcoming etc.
Food was good, buffet for breakfast and dinner. There is also an al a carte restaurant on the beach/by the pool, and it is also very good. I enjoyed the wide selection and there was always lots of fruit at every meal. While we were here there was a large group of students so during the day it was a bit louder but nothing too bad. Overall it was a good stay.
Also the hotel is right by the main street. Excellent location!

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

My friend and I stayed at this hotel from 21st July till 4th of August this year. The hotel is at the centre at the Hersonissos, 800 metres from the bar street with the bars, pubs and restaurants. That is the good point of that hotel. The bad points are: very small room, with even smaller bathrooms, the rooms have not been renovated for quiet some time, which shows. As far as the food is concerned, it supossed to be also quite a selection of gluten-, lactose-free food, but there was no sign of it. Or it wasn't marked. Also I must point out - there were a lot of young people in the hotel, that meant a lot of noise during every night, despite the warnings from me and the receptionist. So I recommend this hotel for the location, but not for any other reason.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side don't have the morning sun - recommended.

My husband and I stay at this hotel from 7th to 21st july, 2 weeks. We had a really good and pleasent stay. The hotel is in Hersonissos, 800 m from the nose,bars, night life, in the quiet area which is fantastic location. In this hotel you have a great value for money. Room in hotel was average, little space, too little bathroom, we had air condition, tv and a balcony with a view of some hotel and in beside of the sea. Room was small, but very clean and tide. Housemade was cleaning room every day and brought a clean towels every day. Food in hotel was EXCELLENT!! Buffet for breakfast and dinner, everything was amazing, many choice, warm and great. Staff was very very polite and kind. So, if you are looking for good hotel, which has a great location,in quiter area, clean, good food i recomended you this hotel, you want be sorry. We didn t regret, we had a really great time and hope we will come again. :)
