My wife (who walks with a stick, following a stroke) & I came here for our granddaughter's beach wedding further up Tigaki beach. Odysseus is a wonderful hotel. Without exception, all staff, from reception to maids to restaurant & bar to general workers, are friendly, helpful & eager to please. All, even those gardening or cleaning pools, smiled with a "kali maira" or "kali spera" according to time of day & appreciated our feeble efforts at a few Greek words - tho' not all were Greek. The main restaurant offered a fantastic selection of all sorts of cuisine. We were all inclusive & made the most of it. from the Congo, who spoke fluent English, French & Greek, & exchanged a few words in Swahili with my wife. He recommended the splendid Queen of Hearts Greek white wine. Nothing was too much trouble in offering assistance if my wife needed it. The room was wonderful, with comfy bed, good shower & a sea view from the balcony. It was convenient for the tavern which provided a varied barbecue, salad & of course those sweetmeats. Our Thomson / First Choice rep was helpful & got us on to the day trip round the island, & again driver & guide were excellent, knowledgeable & humorous. The hotel's pools were magnificent - we walked along the adjacent beach but swam in the pool. Fantastic time. Just a mention of the lovely wedding at the Irina beach hotel & reception at Zorba's Hotel - great food. Amazing holiday. Eucharisto!
