Just spent a week here in the self catering studios and thought it was a very nice hotel. Lovely staff and Katerina herself was very often seen around the hotel ensuring everything was running smoothly. Rooms are adequate and have everything you need. The only thing I would say is the shower is small and the shower curtain clung to you everytime you were having a shower which was a bit annoying!. This did not bother us too much though and wouldn't put us off staying there again.
Our room was spotless and we were pleasantly surprised to see the cleaners visited our room every single day to either change or make up the bed and provide clean towels if needed. I thought this was a very good service to provide for self catering apartments. We even left our room late one day - around 12 p.m and when we came back the beds were made. The air conditioning in the room works very well and costs €5 per day - well worth getting as I don't think you could sleep without it in high season. There is a fridge in the room which was free of charge. Safes are located in reception and cost €15 per week.
We didn't spend too much time around the pool area as we preferred the beach bars where it was cooler by virtue of the sea breeze but we did spend one day there and it was lovely but very hot! . Good snack bar and again, nice friendly staff.
There wasn't a whole lot provided in terms of entertainment - maybe 2 nights out of 7. We went to a Greek night one of the nights which was good fun. One guest complained about the noise which I thought was somewhat unreasonable considering it is a holiday resort and it really wasn't that loud if you had your doors closed in the apartment.
Overall I think its a great hotel. They also provided a room for us to shower in on the day we checked out, I thought this was a nice touch.
When considering some people's reviews, I think you also have to bear in mind the price you are paying. It was a basic but perfectly adequate, clean and central hotel and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. The room decor may not be the most modern but it is clean and after all you do not spend a whole lot of time in your room in a beautiful place like Greece.
