Having checked out the website before booking our room I was expecting much more... so I was unpleasantly surprised to find out that in reality this hotel has an overall average feel to it. We stayed in a standard room which was small, looking dated, with 3 small windows facing at the back. The bathroom was ok. The room was probably clean but did not feel like it... I cannot pin it down to something in particular but I wouldn't rush back in a hurry.
We paid 75E/night (special arrangement as wedding guests) an ok price I guess for Greece in July. However I tend to find that this is a generalised standard room price for very average rooms around the country... not value for money.
The food was bland & uninspired.
The pool was small but functional.
The location is very pretty & the reception of the wedding was lovely.
