Three days before flying, our travel agency told that the selected hotel was under reconstruction. So we were redirected to Lyttos Beach. Every thing is there to make it a nice place but there is a serious lack in coordination. Especially the restaurant is terrible. Too much peolpe in a short period (each meal duration is 1h30). Only three coffe machines for breakfast (over 300 rooms), plates were never served hot, not enough refilling. Though the staff is very friendly and helpfull, and they try to do their best with the poor means they had.
Enough diversity in the presented food.
Restaurants have only tables for 8 persons. As a couple we could never eat with just the two of us.
the bar at the pool is very noisy. Barman and Barmaid are very good (thanks Nikolaos). drinks are OK.
The pool is surprising, minimum depth is 1m40; very dangerous for little children. No stairs to enter the pool, which is not easy for older or disabled people. Beach is nice and big (350 m) with enough seats and umbrellas. Pool and beach are under control of a life guard.
Lots of Russian people.
