Just returned from Zafiris,we spent 11 nights there.
Overall we had a lovely relaxing time and yes the staff were good.
I understand the Zafiris is a work in progress and improvments are
being made every year.Then can I make a request for the next round
of improvments.Our room had partly been done up ie new tiles in bathroom
and floor tiles throughout whole apartment but other things
the fittings ie wardrobe,draws,dressing table,bed and bedside tables were
very tired looking,old,chipped and badly in need of replacement.
But I will say it was kept very clean and the bed was very very comfortable.
The thing I missed the most was air con which is controlled centrally and had been
turned off by the managment because they thought it was not hot enough to have it
on.Well I thought it was hot enough and for the first theree nights I hardley slept at all
with the heat in our room.Then we had a big storm which cleared the air a bit,so I slept a bit better.to be honest even if it was on I don't know how well It would have worked because the unit itself was a big ugly rusty heap of metal with some slats in the top which sat on the floor on a corner wall,It was even leaning forward off its rusty base and in danger of toppling over.It really was out of the ark.So they need to replace these rusting hulks with nice modern compact wall mounted units urgently.What an improvment that would be.Believe meas a holidaymaker its one of the most attractive things us, and to be able to control it oneself would be the icing on the cake.
I know these things are not cheap,but I think this improvment alone would lift this hotel into a whole different category,its got the lovely location,its got the really good staff, the new air con is the next step to making this hotel even better for the future.If you would like to check out the air con unit mentioned in thi piece our room number was 401A.
