Arrived very late on Monday night the 10th Sept. 2012, first impressions, yes, the bedroom was a bit dark and in need of some modernising, but everything seemed to work o k, very surprised that the cheerful cleaning staff were around next morning to change all our bedding and towels again, this was the case for the next 14 days. The staff at the hotel under the General Manager Ioannis Sourvinos (Yanni) were so helpful and hard working, his sister Angeliki and Aspasia who ran the reception were also very helpful and full of advise, they even taught us a few Greek words.
The waiters Alex, Vaglis and George who also ran the bar were also very good, polite and helpful. I have read others reviews on this hotel, yes it needs modernising which I was told by Yanni is being carried out to the rooms, although we had hot water all of our stay the shower was very small and the lighting was so poor, It was like trying to shave with sun glasses on,and yes I do have to agree that the food, although there was more then enough at breakfast, the let down was most of the evening meals, but I would suspect that they have to operate with in their budjets, when we sit back and think about it were could I get 14 nights half board accomodation, free air conditioning, free safe deposit box in a very nice area of the Golden Sands Hotel with it's nice swimming pool and sunbeds etc for £394 including £50 transfers, you would not get that anywhere that I I know of in England
Will we go back to the Golden Sands Hotel, yes we are thinking of late May early June next year
