As I traveled here for a business conference, my perspective may be slightly different than those with families along.
Plusses: * My room had a very nice view of the water, That was the biggest plus to the hotel.
* Room was sufficiently large, and bathroom was more than adequate.
* Staff was polite.
* There really isn't anything to do here except enjoy the beach and pool. The town has little going on. This may or may not be an issue for other travellers, depending on their style.
* Greece has many smokers and at the time I stayed here, the hotel allowed smoking in common areas. As a non-smoker with a sensitive nose, this was a big issue. Had to stay away from common areas. Obviously not an issue for smokers or those who do not notice smoke.
* Value. As my company paid for the room, I was not sensitive to price. My guess is that this is a fairly expensive hotel. In view of that, I question the value unless you really just want to relax on the beach in a firaly quiet village - in which case it is ideal.
Let me just make a quick comment on Athens. You should definitely find time to go there and visit the famous sites (Parthenon, Acropolis, Agora), but, candidly, you really do not need more than a day. Unless you want to check out some of the lesser attractions, a full day is plenty of time to cover the key highlights to Athens and enjoy each.
