Having easily made the 1415 ferry from Mykonos (book a taxi in advance from the airport) having landed on Easyjet at 1305, the hotel looked after us very well from Maria in reception who was just brilliant and couldn't do enough for us from start to finish even going to the ferry office to pick up my tickets for our trip back to Mykonos - always smiling and wanting to ensure we had a great holiday.
Then there was Helena in the shop - always smiling, offering advice and making us feel so special.
Elpeida in the bar - what a worker - always looking to see if somebody needed a drink - we asked for drinks she'd never heard of but she still made them for us - just brilliant.
Finally George in the restaurant - never a day off, working all shifts, keeping the restaurant flowing when the hotel was pretty full and despite supporting a shocking football team (Chelsea) - we had some great conversations on sport, politics, anything.
The waiting staff had mixed capability but were always pleasant and the ladies that made up our rooms did so diligently with a great attention to detail.
If I had one criticism, it would be to do with the lady who served behind the pool bar - never smiling, always thinking she was doing us a favour - that was a shame as was the fact that the pool bar at night was double the price of anywhere else in Gallissas - we chose not to go especially as the entertainment never changed!!
We are a family with three kids aged between 9 and 14 and stayed for 18 nights. A side trip to Athens for a couple of days flying from Syros airport was brilliant and worthwhile.
