I would firstly like to say this is the first review I have felt the need to write about anywhere, I had a fantastic holiday but many aspects of the trip were spoilt. I visited here in June with my boyfriend for my 21st birthday. Hotel was lovely, really clean and modern but after booking a 'Double Deluxe Sea View Room' .. two twin beds shoved together with separate sheets and a pool view is not what we expected. After requesting to move, the receptionist staff (who came across very rude) explained they were totally full and it was not possible, they also argued that that it WAS a double bed and they had 'upgraded' us. However after searching the site whilst there I saw the actual room was much bigger with a sofa bed, couples we met on the holiday said they had this room with a real double bed. The receptionist's just continued to argue that this was not the case. This was not resolved and was really upsetting especially as the beds were not even locked together so it was worse than sleeping at home (unless you sleep in a single)
FOOD- as most all inclusive hotels not much choice, gets a little repetitive but after finding RAW chicken in my pasta in put me off completely.. the chefs argued it was 'meant to be like that' but then removed the whole serving dish immediately after I left. Greek night was amazing but only happened once while we was there, would have liked to have had more Greek food than just pasta salad and chips everyday.
DRINKS- good choice, bar staff are lovely and work hard. Bit disappointed at having to pay 30 euros for 2 drinks in the a la carte restaurant after paying for all that all inclusive. Also the main bar shuts at 1:00 in the morning but all inclusive stops at 12:00 midnight so you have to pay if you want drinks after that time.
THINGS TO DO- entertainment staff put on a good show every night and it is well worth hiring a car for the day as they have a office for it in the hotel. you can hire a peugeot 107 for just 35 euro for the full day, great way to see the beautiful island. There are a lot of families there, especially with young children, would not fancy going back as not many couples.
WEDDING!?- whilst there we were notified (2 days before) the hotel owners daughter was to get married on the complex. It was a lovely thing to witness but they took away all the sunbeds for the day as they had to set up for 900 guests! This took a day out of our holiday which was not wise as nobody knew what to do with their selves other than sit on their balcony.
OVERALL- lovely time, staff helped to make me a cake for my birthday which was a nice surprise. Lots of drinks to pick from and generally good weather throughout. However receptionist staff and waiters/chefs need to learn some manners to make staff feel welcome. They have really put us off from returning again.
