Having just read the last two reviews I can only echo all that was said. The only positive thing I can say about our stay at this so called 5 star hotel is that I managed to loose weight rather than put it on ! the food was disgusting, served up in the most unappetising way ans was indeed that when we complained it was cold the manager told use the microwave and that no one else had complained, which was a blatant lie since I heard several people doing just that.
I used the" jacuzzi" bath one day and was greeted with an awful smell which coud have only been the stale water left in the system and now in my bath water.
One morning the swimming pool had scum floating all over the top of it. I have photos to prove it. People still swam in it and when I Complained I was told there was no problem as other people were happy to swm in it .
When I confronted the manager about the fact we had no water either hot or cold from 4-00pm, until the next day he threatened to call the Police! The glass situation is a joke. Our bed was made up with two single sheets and when I pulled them back to photograph them I discovered I was sleeping on a urine stained mattress. Other customers had equally bad complaints, the bathrooms flood reguarly. Customers move rooms on a regular basis, up to 4 times. The animation team were awful, same music every day, 5 euros for one game of bingo, rip off !
We moved hotels for our second week to a four star hotel and the difference was measurable across all areas. The pool was cleaned by a machine overnight, all night. The staff were happy helpful and friendly. The animation team were in a different league.
My Dad said he could understand why the Greek economy is in a mess as they seem to have got 1 and 5 mixed up !
Whatever you do don't stay here, if you have already booked try and change your reservation or else good luck I pity you.
