Having booked before reading the reviews I thought it really couldn't be as bad as they indicated. It should be fantastic, five star, beautiful setting, but it was pretty bad. Food was worse. How can you ruin breakfast? Well try swimming the eggs in oil, running out of basics and only supplying hard 'plastic' bread for toasting. And in a country where the fruit is wonderful try serving unripe peaches and nectarines and tinned fruit salad to go with the Greek yogurt (which was good when available).
The staff were friendly and helpful but you kind of felt sorry for the whole set up. How could they only have about ten people staying with them when the rest of the town was buzzing?
The only thing I can add was that we were lucky, we were only there for a week another unlucky couple had booked in for ten days and had made the mistake of having an evening meal there!
If you think you'd like an empty pool you might go for this but when you're the only ones there the whole time it loses it's romance. Specially with minimal bar or snack service.
