What a shocker. I travelled with my sister for a week of sunshine and laughs. We knew the hotel would be basic at 2 and a half stars. We booked all inclusive as the price seemed good at £320 each. My sister read the reviews and said that it 'didn't look great' Understatement of the year!!
Dead cockroaches on the steps inside the hotel were left to fester for the whole week of our stay, we were ushered into the lounge on arrival (more like the Wheeltappers and Shunters club) and we were told by Heir Flick the German Manager/owner that 'We know you are tired but we are more tired!' That was at 4am after leaving home at 8pm the night before. We instantly paid an extra 50Euro to upgrade to a room with air conditioning as the other rooms on offer were dismal to say the least. Our upgraded room was VERY BASIC, dirty taps, mirrors and floors, centipedes 6 inches long crawling out of the shower and cockroaches setting up home in the clothes storage. There is no shade in the pool area, no parasols, no lids on bins around the pool area leading to massive amount of wasps, stench of sewage prevailed day and night, mouldy bathrooms. The food is DIABOLICAL. I felt that we were treated like pigs, we didn;t eat at the hotel after the first day as the diet consisted of a choice of two meals, usually yesterday's left overs with a different name, grey chicken swimming in a sea of greasy film or luke warm pasta, dirty, chipped crockery, a distinct lack of cutlery and basic hygiene. We even had to ask at reception whenever we needed toilet paper and resorted to buying our own to save embarassment.
The people in Dasia are lovely and whenever they asked us where we were staying they would look at us with pity and tell us of the horror stories they had heard from other guests. There are some fantastic Tavernas along the main high street and the beach at the Dasia Chandris Hotel is lovely but a fair walk from the Telemachos Hotel.
The hotel management and staff seem to have a total disregard for people's dignity, we were herded from pillar to post on arrival and departure, we were practically thrown out to sit on the hotel steps at midnight in the dark while we waited for our coach transfer which was arriving at 3am. We were then moved away from the steps to stand in the car park and wait for our coach in the dark. We had already checked out at 12 lunchtime and had to pay an extra 35 euro to keep our rooms until 7pm.
We were treated like pigs, I wouldn't give the food served up at the Telemachos to my cats. A Health Inspector would have a field day in that place. Even in the main lobby in the newer part of the building the ants feasted on dead cockroaches day after day, the only area that seems to get a regular sweeping is the pool and that is cursary to say the least. Don't ignore the reviews, take heed and don't go!
