Stayed at Park hotel for 2 weeks, rooms very clean but not really suitable for number of persons in our party (4),people booking this hotel should only consider for maximum 3 persons, room given had one double bed, first child had sofa bed (with very hard mattress), second child had rusty camp bed alongside with very thin mattress stained with rust from camp bed, this was eventually changed.
Air conditioning 35 Euros per week and Safety Deposit box 10 Euros per week.
Location not so good, approximately 25 ~ 30 minute walk to the beach on a busy road (no pavement) via the quickest way longer if you went through town, 15 minute walk to start of resort bars.
Hotel itself was kept very clean with bedding and towels changed regularly which was very positive, a pity the same could not be said about the food.
Breakfast consisted of tinned fruit salad, meat, cheese and some variety of cooked bread, topped off with sometimes cocktail sausages or bacon with beans. Flies constantly landing on the food and buzzing around the dining area. Evening meals worse than old school dinners, Greek salad starter daily, with a soup and choice of 3 dishes with usually one vegetarian dish, these rotated weekly except for vegetarian dish. The food itself was very poor quality and bland with actual food hygiene being poor / non existent, not the taste of Greece we were looking for. Several times we returned food to the counter due to it having gone off (fruit salad, peaches, tzaziki etc), staff did not remove old food, just poured new over the top. Having suffered from several bouts of stomach cramps during our stay we opted to start eating out at night, not good if you have paid for half board. Seemed if you were vegetarian you would have a hard time here as the same dish was rolled out constantly ( I would hate to think how many times it had been re-heated and served)
Swimming pool a nightmare if you / your child has an allergy to wasp stings as they are constantly at the pool side, our daughter stepped on one and was stung, I counted at least 40 at a time around the pool (BEWARE). Children's pool is a joke, no one used it. Children's play area suitable for under 5s only with some old plastic play equipment dotted around a grassy area (a slide, seesaw and broken play house). There was a Table tennis table you could use in the garden for older children and a pool table in the bar area (1.5 euro per game). Free wifi available but in a very limited area in the dining room
Ignore the Thomas cook brochure as there is no entertainment at this hotel at all, in the evenings a morgue is livelier! after dinner everybody disappears into Tsilivi, probably again due to flies and the high temperature in the dining room due to the air conditioning not running (actually not even plugged in). Just for decoration!!!
Tsilivi ok if you want an English seaside resort with hot weather, when you walked into town, every bar played English dance music and had large flat screen tvs showing Premier league matches,a very loud resort ideal for young couples, if you are looking for a traditional Greek resort this is not it. Beware!!!
