We stayed here as a party of 8 in May for our father in laws birthday trip. We had picked the hotel as a few of us had stayed here before.
The initial room we had faced the road at the front of the hotel and was quite dark so we asked to change and got a mixture of pool and sea view rooms which was great (and the staff were lovely about it!). The rooms were a decent size (for Greece), basic but very clean and had plenty of storage. A few other reviews have said about the small bathrooms but again it was definitely not the smallest Greek bathroom I've had.
We had breakfast included which had a selection of hot and cold items but it was quite basic, however, breakfast is such good value out and about in laganas (and for decent quality food) that we did this most days. I do not blame the hotel for this as the UK package holiday companies pay the hotel so little (I did not realise how little!) that I would not expect top notch ingredients. I do very much like their poolside snack bar, great lunchtime food at very reasonable prices and in a nice setting. Try the Chicken Gyros and a Vanilla milkshake, beautiful!
The pool area itself is lovely, the pool nice and cold to refresh against the heat and a good number of sunbeds. I do think that the hotel are missing a trick by charging for the sunbeds on the grass/beach as if you go to any of the beach bars or restaurants, they were offering free sunbeds and wifi if you buy their drinks. We did this on a few occasions and so maybe the hotel should review this so they don't lose this money?
However, compared to the lovely clean sandy beach from last time I visited, the beach is now quite dirty with cig butts everywhere. We even saw a dog actually poo on the beach and the dogs owner got a spade and just buried it. I pity the poor parents whose child finds that in a few weeks....
We tried many of the restaurants along the beach whilst there, tasos's on the beach was great with garlic bread to die for and great prices. We also ventured onto the Laganas "strip" one night but it was pretty dead (1am) so maybe too early in the season?
Overall I would be very happy to go back to this hotel as they look after you so well but not so sure about Laganas itself.
