I had read many reviews and knew what to expect from Panarama hotel, I expected it to be basic - which it was, but it was clean and the pool area looked nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful - however the major problem was that we booked this holiday on the understanding that this accomadation was quite and suitable for couples and families but found it full of groups of youngsters, we were advised there were a few young ones in when arrived and was told they would be leaving soon, however what we didnt know was that even more would arrive the week after. We were constantly woken at night by music, doors banging, knocking on doors and shouting from these younsters this seemed to go on throughout the night.
The staff did what they could and when complaints were made about the noise etc they did try to deal with it, we were told by one staff member that Thomsons are now advertising it as young and livelyhotel as Malia is full - so I think it will be like this fot the rest of the summer.
The location is briliant for beach, bars, shops and restaurants and we would have enjoyed are holiday much more if we could have relaxed at the appartments and around the pool rather than having to constantly go out to escape the noise etc.
Stalis itself is really nice with lots of good places to eat and drink - try Themis beachbar for cocktails - the staff there are so friendly. However if you are booked in shortly expecting a family or couples holiday and don't want to feels as tho you are on a 18 - 30's holiday I would recommend contacting Thomasons and asking them to change your accomadation. I spoke to others in the same situation who felt very let down Thomsons. Thomsons are out of order I will be contacting them with my comments and wont be using them again which is a shame as if the hotel had been couples and family as advertised I would have gone back mainly because of location and friendliest of staff.
