We were recommended by Greek friends that The Grand would be the best choice available at this time of the year. Having checked the reviews we naturally became concerned but the advice we were given was better than expected.
We stayed five nights, spanning the end of October and the beginning of November so saw the closing of the Italian and Chinese in-house restaurants (the poolside snack bar had already closed) For us this was not a problem as we had always intended eating out and most evenings drove into the atmospheric Old Town rather than experience the large communal in-house buffet.
We were given an excellent room on the fourth floor facing the sea. As many reviewers have said there can be problems.. Once the maintenance man had fixed the broken bedside lamp and explained how to re-set the air-conditioning we began to relax. Unfortunately the smell of fried food wafting up from the hotel restaurant below made it unpleasant to sit on our balcony after dark and we later discovered that the road noise was not masked by the air conditioning unit.
Staying as we did out of season, with temperatures in the high 70s, with an excellent B&B rate booked direct with the hotel, our Autumn break was good value and made an excellent base for exploring the island.More
