This was truly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. This was absolutely not a 4 star hotel. The pictures on their website are completely fabricated. They post numerous photos of food that you CANNOT actually get at this hotel. All meals are a
buffet, and not nicely plated meals as shown in the pictures. The bed is probably worse than sleeping on the tile floor. The blankets are disgusting. The walls on the bungalows are paper thin and you can hear everything going on right outside your room (especially if you're close to the amphitheater where they put on nightly entertainment). The nightly entertainment also can result in the hotel blowing a fuse numerous times (leaving you in the dark). The staff is extremely rude (except for Theo - he is the only competent, nice person at the hotel). I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and am extremely upset about it's poor quality.
Excellent hotel in well kept gardens. As advertised, conveniently located, really enjoyed my stay. 3 things you should know:
1 - They have a large contingent of French guests for whom they run a lot of loud sessions behind the pool, but you cannot
hear this on the beach, sun loungers usually available. My room was next to another hotel which blasted out noise more loudly during the day, although not all the time.
2 - The restaurant was a bit like upmarket school dinners, but nice basic salads and edible food available, you won't go hungry. Soft drinks, beer & wine on tap (wine a bit rough). No probs as a single traveller.
3 - There are some small problems with the rooms: You have to use the room key to lock the door from the inside before putting on the lights & there is not an internal latch. The shower in my room was squeezed into a corner between the sink & loo.
Love French disco music? This is the place for you!
This was the least satisfactory of the 6 hotels we stayed at during our recent trip to Greece. French package tours stop here--which is great if you like loud French disco music until midnight. Otherwise, ask for a room as far from the
pool/restaurant as possible.
The water in the rooms is non-potable and the management does not provide bottled water; you have to buy it from a nearby convenience store. They try to nickle and dime you, e.g., there's a safe in the room, but you have to rent the key for 3 Euros/day. The coffee served at breakfast is execrable, and the hot water for to is too cool to be useful.
