We went with Thomson to this "hand picked" hotel.......Filthy pool, bar area and childrens pool area covered in shattered glass, fag butts and old bits of rubber, airconditioning leaking all over our balcony, trecherous to say the least. My son and I lost toenails due to the bits of metal sticking up around the pool and the uneven paving slabs. Path down to the private storm drain..sorry private beach was littered with broken glass broken tiles, disguarded deck chairs loungers, old rusty ladders, hosepipes and concrete and at night it is a water outlet so you have the pleasure of biting and clawing your way up a muddy ravine dodging the sharp items in the dark. Quick word about he beach, to get there you have to run accross a busy road on a blind bend and vault over a crash barrier before reaching the rickety steps down to a large concrete wall with two massive storm drains facing the sea. You can sunbathe and swim there as long as there are no more than seven people on the beach at any one time. The sunbeds were lethal and only partially replaced when I piled all the broken ones in a big heap and told the rep to get more, a few more arrived but not nearly enough for the amount of guests, rep told me it is difficult to get sunbeds in Greece!!!. Childrens play area is bordered with barbed wire and the swings are rotten with screws protruding from them and the only other entertainment was an unplugged electric darts board with twelve flightless darts. Other guests (Czech families) used the pool bar area and grassy areas surrounding as a public toilet...yes both kinds and there were adult activities taking place in the pool that children simply should not be subjected to. I could go on and on about this place but I think you get the gist, avoid this place at all costs we moved out after one week as we could take no more and moved to porto Gallini about 200m away and that was fantastic. I have attached some lovely snaps of our holiday at red tower. Nico the barman was nice though.
