Hope you enjoyed it, we've been back a week and it seems like a month. Waiting for TA to publish our review, not quite sure why they are taking so long!

@ KazP

I agree Trip adviser seem to be taking a very long time to publish reviews, it is odd as often there can be teething problems with a system when first set up, but this seems to have got a lot slower of late, it is a shame as it will damage the site as less will bother to add genuine reviews, of course those using the reviews to "promote" their own business will persevere, and as such the credibility of reviews / the sitre could suffer.

I appreciate they need to be mindful of first time reviewers, but surely when someone has a track record for numerous reviews in many different countries they should apply some common sense.

Odd thing is they published 3 reviews but left the other 3 pending...been waiting for them to respond to email but nothing yet.

As you say first time reviewers take a little longer as I guess these are flagged up on their system but for regular contributors, it really shouldn't take longer than a couple of days or so.

I arrived back from Kalamaki yesterday and had a fab holiday with family and friends. Unfortunately I too had a terrible incident where I was robbed by a passing car near to Dennys Inn where they drove by me and my husband and snatched my hanbag with all my personal belongings in. Whilst this was a very traumatic experience for us I don’t blame the Greek people that live and work there. It is a beautiful resort with friendly locals and we didn't let these thugs that stole my things ruin our holiday. I would just advise that the beach roads are poorly lit and to be extra vigilant at night around these areas.
