read the reviews decided to give a go, spent hours looking at reviews.
Hotel itself very small, apparently some travel agents are trying to sell this as a 18 / 30 , which it is, if you have small children stay clear of this hotel. the only saving grace was we used the sister hotel " Klelia Beach Hotel in Kalamaki " which has a huge pool and there were quite a few familes staying there, unlike the plaza. Really wish we booked this hotel, Trouble its about 15 / 16 euro's round trip so can prove costly to visit. but was so much better even the drinks were branded ie Coca cola, Fanta etc etc unlike the cheap makes in "plaza"
The "plaza" is great for the nightlife you cannot deny this,but at the same time if you like sleeping avoid this hotel,
we went in august and it was soo hot you cannot even sit outside your balcony in the evenings, the air con is essential but you have to pay extra which is the 1st place i have ever had to pay, this hotel was not cheap, by any means
Apart from the exclusive room which was not really that nice very basic............Enough said
UPSIDE : However the food lived up to expectations and more, simply brillant this part of all the reviews are 100% correct as well as the staff you cannot fault them they worked endlessly.
The drinks were watered down my wife saw one of the staff put water into the unbranded coke bottle, the spirits were basically very cheap and compare to the majority of hotels i have stayed this was dreadful, terribel selection you can pay for branded names but that said why go all inclusive if you have to pay more ??? only good thing was the mythos lager.
I am sorry to put a "downer" on this hotel. As the staff are excellent
The blurb states familes welcomed etc etc but trust me this is not a hotel for families, or older folk.
One small word on the pool itself it was so cloudy the first couple of days that it made your eyes sting so i made sure my children wore goggles all the time you couldnt evem see the bottom, aslo it is very deep definately not CHILD friendly.
Tv in room might as well throw this out no english tv channels at all.
Fridge didnt work - contray to some reports you can hear noise from the strip till 4.15 int eh morning trust me. word of warning do not have a bath we did and when we took the plug out the water plus other ? just flooded the bathroom, a man came to fix it and said only let a bit of water out at a time ...what ??? as drain could not take it .......
So familes beware. must say however the teenages (18/25) were all resonable well behaved mainly due to the fact the pool was empty in the mornings until they woke up then the pool got crowed very quickly. Did go down to the "greek nite" manily due to the fact even thought the doors on the balconly were closed and the shutters closed you could still hear this very clearly in the room. It was a very good night but a bit late for our children to stay up.........................
To sum up Brillant place for the "teens but if you have CHILDREN stay well clear of this Hotel.
Just remembered even the baby pool had no water in it which should speak volumes..........................................................
