“Rooms too small, beds way too hard, staff too cold.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2010

This is a clean, efficiently run hotel. Unfortunately when we arrived the Porter (who we called Lurch) apparently had hurt his back and could not carry any luggage. He didn't realize my wife speaks Greek and said to the owner 'don't you carry them, just let them' As mentioned, our room was tiny, and we like others had to pay €3 per day to put bottled water in the mini bar fridge. A point of interest is the wi-fi charge, €3 per hour up to any amount. Even the Hilton had a 24 hour rate that was much less @ €23! The beds (twins) were as hard as slate and my wife & I needed neck massages during and after our stay there. There is an air of pettiness about this place, we felt like more school kids on excursion than paying patrons because there are so many rules and everything seemed to attract an extra charge. Also good to note that the hotel is at the top of a pretty steep hill which can be daunting after a long day in the sun and a good dinner.

Friendly and welcoming staff and owners. Good buffet selection at breakfast. Very clean hotel. Lovely swimming pool and loungers in a tranquil garden. Quiet location with views down to the port & bay. Close to bus stop and large supermarket. Easy walk to restaurants on seafront and along the harbourside. Our favourite was Katarina - the best in Parikia. Hotel does not offer transfers to/from the port but it is a short taxi ride from there.

We spent six days at Hotel Panorama at the beginning of june. We was lucky to get very nice room at second floor with nice seaview. Hotel was peacefull and service very good. The breakfast buffet was good.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Panorama--it was far nicer than I expected and offered a relaxing atmosphere, great view of the water, and lovely place to rest after a full day on the island. I highly recommend it to any visitor. Just know that the location is about a 10 minute walk to the heart of Parikia.

The owners were very rude to us and unfriendly. The bed was hard and uncomfortable; I awoke every day with sore muscles and stiffness. The maids made a terrible racket cleaning the rooms in the morning - we couldn't sleep in as a result. The pool was overly chlorinated and stung my eyes very badly - I only went in once because of it. The mini bar fridge was not cold - it had a circuit board hanging out of the freezer to keep it at room temp. When we asked the owner why she said it wasn't a fridge but a cupboard to keep the mini bar items in and that if we wanted anything cold we would have to pay an extra 3 euro per day! Extraordinary! I had to smuggle in cold bottles of water into the room from outside and then hide the evidence in case we got charged the extra 3 euros. The owners didn't bid us farewell when we checked out - they just told us a cab would be arriving soon to take us down to the port. I couldn't wait to get out of there - I felt I couldn't relax the whole time we were there (3days)

We have been in the hotel business for over forty years and can honestly say that we have never had a complaint that even comes close to yours which touched on just about every service possible.
During that period we have had thousands of satisfied clients of which hundreds pay us the ultimate compliment of returning to our hotel year after year.
We have done nothing to the mini bar or beds in the room where you stayed and we have NEVER had one single complaint since.

My wife and I had a lovely stay in the Panorama in August, we arrived very late in the night but we got a lovely welcome by an English gentleman at the reception who was always smiling and willing to help with anything we asked of him.
Breakfast was superb and the Hotel gardens and pool area are a delight. Rooms are not the biggest but but very clean and we had a great view.
We would stay again.
