Me and a friend stayed here in Oct 13 and overall we thought it was good value for money the food was lovely...the chef is a very friendly guy....the rooms was basic which I thought was fine...as u get that in many overseas hotels anyway and u don't spend all the time in the room so...the staff were very friendly....the pool was very clean and gets cleaned everyday...overall out of all the bad reviews I personally think any holiday is what you make it and you cannot please everyone some ppl expect to much ...if they want perfect why don't they go in a 5* hotel overall I would go there again no problem

As soon as the bus pulled up out side things went down hill. Male receptionist was wearing a dity t shirt and jeans the first thing he said was I will up grade you for50 euro which we declined he took us to a room which you would not keep a stray dog in absolutely discusting so we asked to be moved as we had Booker a double room and needed a separate room for a foster child he said well I will put another bed in that room (which already had 3 beds in with no room for a chair let alone bed) receptionist became very agitated and terrible attitude. 2nd room was just as bad sink falling off the wall toilet all stained out of 7lights only 3 worked blankets that were on the beds we like old army blankets and a very strong smell of human waist in the room no hot running water which carries a high possibility of legionella. All inclusive was not all inclusive no choices and the Scottish guy also very bad attitude served you from behind a closed counter you got rice chips r spaghetti one choice of meat dessert was water melon thats it. We phoned on the beach to ask to be moved hotels and explained that stopping in this hotel was a health hazard due to the problems we stayed one night which was the longest night of our lives one of the beds had to be held up with one of our suitcases. We then moved and payed for a hotel just along the road the next morning when leaving the owner of the hotel said go I don't care I have got my money you will not get it back (we have got it back) please please please stay away.

Stayed at the Telemachos in August,basically there is nothing wrong with this hotel,the staff are great & go out of there way to help you,if you treat them with respect.
If I wanted my sheets or towels changed I asked the room cleaner(never had a problem).
The pool was cleaned in the morning & was clear not murky as some of the comments on here suggest,the only problem with the pool while I was there was the inconsiderate parents who let kids c**p in it (why!!)
The food is fine for the money you pay to stay in this hotel,the people who moan about it should book into 4 star hotel next year & pay £700 per week instead of the£300/£400 you pay here.
As I say treat the staff with respect instead of swearing at them when your drunk & you,ll find their very helpful & will go out of their way for you.
The main problem with this hotel are the moaning Brits who seem to think it,s ok to insult the staff when they don,t get their own way,10 years ago you would never see any Brit insulting a Greek person in their own country. Perhaps it,s a sign of the times that Brits abroad now behave like a bunch of muppets,if you did this in your own country(which you wouldn,t have the guts to do) you would be on the floor,but for some reason it,s alright to do it to a Greek barman or cleaner who are only doing their job.
Anyway i will be going back there next year,i go for a good time & am happy as long as there,s a bed & the rooms ok(which they are),to the saddos that go around taking pictures of shower curtains & light fittings,go somewhere else next year preferably Siberia.
Many thanks to all the staff at the hotel for a good time this year see you all in 2014.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new block are bigger & overlook the pool area.

...unless you like living in a filthy room on a concrete slab of a mattress with bedsheets that have cig burns and what looks like blood stains on them; eating leftovers from previous meals; drinking watered down drinks and rolacola and usually waiting about 20 minutes before a barman appears to serve you; getting a bath to find when you empty the water, sewage comes up through the drain in the bathroom floor; swimming in a pool full of dead insects and sunbathing on a sunbed from c.1973 - that's if you get one that isn't broken; constantly being watched and followed about by the staff who are all on the defensive, one word of complaint they fly of the handle and go ballistic, that's when they're not too busy harassing young women; using a dated unsafe lift with no internal door; having the occasional shower in brown water; getting your own flannels bleached by the maid who must be cleaning the bath out with pure bleach, just what you like to bathe in.

Dassia is also mainly closed and dilapidated, the streets are just deserted and with old broken bars and weeds everywhere, the beach has one bar open with no customers and it is filthy all the other bars are closed down covered in rubbish and weeds so they've been closed for a while not just gone for the season, if you're extremely unlucky you'll get to see one or two stray dogs get run over and die but i'm safe in the knowledge they've gone to a better place, anywhere would be a better place.

Christos the barman was a lovely bloke very kind and friendly. Also the Scottish Chef was a nice friendly bloke, I and my partner saw him personally buying locally produced food from the market. He had a limited menu but I could tell he put a lot of thought care and pride into his food. The staff to me were polite and friendly and helpful . I can't really fault the place I enjoyed every day I spent there. Happy memories and I would go there again. Some people moaned there but they tended to be stuck up in my opinion.

Me and my boyfriend were looking for a cheap, no frills holiday. This hotel was the definition of that. We got what we paid for.

Firstly, I'd like to say that one of the reasons why people got such "rubbish" service was because of the constant complaining. If you speak to people the way you want to be spoken to then you may well have been treated better. This hotel is obviously on a low budget but some of us Brits ask for way more than what we pay for.

My room was absolutely fine. Basic, but fine. My shower and hairdryer worked and I deemed nothing unsafe. And anyway, who goes on holiday to spend most of their time in their room? (I actually heard somebody moan about there not being a TV...I mean what the hell?!) And also, do you change your bedsheets everyday at home? Probably not.

The food was basic, but filled us up. Like I said before, the hotel is clearly on a low budget, so why are people expecting gourmet style food?! And to the people making comments aloud, how would you feel if somebody constantly criticised you? If i was Derek i'd have spat it in in...but obviously, chef is too nice...but what a lovely lovely fella!

We went to the hotel at the end of the season so the hotel was pretty empty, which I think worked in our favour, since you got to know the staff more personally. We were treated very well and were even allowed to keep our room after checkout because our flight was later at night. The reason we were allowed to keep our room was because "we were nice people and were not rude"...it pays to be polite!

We also wanted to hire our own boat and looked down at the beach for a quote. We told the staff at the hotel and told us we were getting ripped off...and we ended up spending half the money we would have! They were very helpful.

We got what we expect from an all inclusive bar - beer and local spirits. Were people expecting bottled beer and smirnoff?! Or Just Juice and the real Coca Cola. Get over yourselves.

We met some fantastic like minded people who we shared many a laugh with, while there were some who sulked in their rooms or sat with us trying to switch the conversation to the pitfalls of the hotel. Im glad some people wasted their money on moaning for a week...and im glad they had a rubbish time because they were just as rude as they claimed the staff to be. But a few of us on the other hand made the most of it.

Yeah, the hotel could do with some changes...but you need money for that and the 10e we spent a day to stay there, thats not happening any time soon . But who cares, we had a great time!

And just for the record Telemachos, not all Brits are moany sods, most of us tend to be polite!
