I have stayed in some pretty basic places in Greece before – hotels and rooms – but this is probably the worst I have ever encountered. I don't mind a place if it's basic, but it's got to be clean and have some sort of charm about it. There was none of that here. I don't think it had been decorated for quite some years and the patchy, flesh-coloured, textured walls weren't exactly welcoming! The room had nothing going for it either. When we arrived at 4.00am, and saw it in the artificial light, my heart sank. I hate shower curtains, but I can put up with them – however it does help if they reach the inside of the shower tray. In the end we just left it and let the water onto the floor to go down the drain in the middle of the bathroom. As for the breakfasts – terrible! Most of it was in packets, and there was little cooked food except scrambled eggs which were hard, lumpy and cold! One morning they came with tomatoes mixed in with them – revolting! The coffee was cheap and nasty, so I took my own, even though the water wasn't that hot. I tried the tea but because the water wasn't hot enough, the tea didn't steep properly. We went out for breakfast on a few days. As for the staff, you do want them to look like they are making some sort of effort! I agree with a previous review about the girls on reception, but I wouldn't say they bit my head off, they just weren't very helpful or interested. I laughed at one of the photos for this hotel – the one of the receptionist on the phone – because that was pretty much how she was for the seven days we were there – and she wasn't taking bookings! A friend, who was staying on the island, phoned the hotel and left a message, but we never got it, so thank goodness for mobile phones! One last point – the swimming pool had a green ring around it so there was no chance of a swim at the hotel, either. Two girls who arrived on the same night we did, booked out the next day and stayed at a nicer hotel down the road. If we'd had the money, we would have done that too!
