I stayed here with my partner for two weeks at the beginning of August. We do not usually stay in 3* accomodation but we are so glad we did. The Hermes is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed, i thought people were exagerating when they said you are treated as one of the family when you arrive, but really you are. Im not going to name anyone inparticular because they were all brilliant. We had a room in the 3's block which is up the "ramp" that appears daunting when you first arrive but steadily the ramp becomes easier. Ive not stayed in greece for a while but from what i remembered of the rooms generally in greece i wasnt expecting much, we were very pleasantly suprised. Modern, clean, still basic with no tv but perfectly acceptable. Yes its true the aircon is not included and is quite pricey, we just slept with the door open and risked getting bit, (which we did, mossi spary a must), Yes its true the breakfast is toast OR cereal but there is lots of choice for a few euros, (it says cornflakes but its not branded cornflakes and is not really comparable to decent cornflakes at home). The pool was lovely, we did get up early to get beds but we did stay on them all day, some guests are inconsiderate reserving beds then going to the beach all day, but this happens everywhere and theres not much the hotel can do. The snack bar at the pool serves lovely food, very fresh, spiro works very hard at this thank you spiro. Overall the hotel was brilliant and we wouldnt hesitate returning, I would hire a car next time, we hired a quad for one day which was fantastic and not too expensive, from katerinas literally opposite, BUT go to sebastian first to ask about car hire etc as he knows all the right people. We recommend the santa barbara restaurant by the harbour, beautiful place beautiful food beautiful people. We would recommend the Hermes to anyone except for those with walking/breathing dificulties as everywhere is up hill.
Great place and great value, would return anytime
