We've been in this hotel in June-July 2014.
What is good: we've been in "apartment standard sea view". It is spacious and is rather in good condition. The lunch and dinner were really tasty, tableware and utensils were clean. Beer is "Zorbas" and is good for hot weather and very light (I guess it has not more than 3.7°). Stuff was helpful.Sea is extremely good for swimming in this place, the water is refreshing, clean and very relaxing. You can do snorkeling - the maximum variety of fish species I've observed exactly at the beach that is nearest to the hotel. I even found three octopuses and middle-size cuttlefish.
What is bad: Hotel is declaring himself as All Inclusive, but it is untrue. The choice of food is VERY limited (as a rule it is one or rarely two courses). The REALLY poor choice of salads and fruits. Even greek salad was not on the table every day. No children menu. The poor choice of desserts. We were forced to cook ourself sometimes. I'd say that the variety of food is shameful for 4* rated hotel.
Hotel doesn't have the bar as a matter of fact. You can order in the bar the same drinks as at the lunch or dinner (orange juice, sparkling water with various sweeteners, red wine, white wine, beer) and ouzo. And that is ALL! They even doesn't have tonic at all. No cocktails at all (even gin-tonic and rum-cola from local manufacturers), no professional bartender at all.
Luckily we don't like swimming pools near hotels (as for me it's weird idea to travel to the Mediterranean Sea in June/July and sit near the swimming pool and swim in chlorinated water), 'cause this hotel has not more than 10 sunbeds near the swimming pool (that was well maintained and permanently cleaned).
Internet/WiFi in hotel is annoying, especially at evening. They use ADSL connection and obviously don't know anything about ADSL filter, so ANY incoming or outcoming phone call breaks connection for a few minutes. Still it is possible to use even videochats (at morning).
Synopsis: not bad overrated hotel. It should be called 3 stars FullBoard and it will be fair. It's definitely should not be called 4 stars and All Inclusive.
