We had a great 7 day holiday at Dolphin Bay Hotel first week in Sept However the room given to us at first was a very dark small room on ground floor as we had stated beforehand at travel agents we would want a 2nd floor room.... after talking to Maria at reception we were given a wonderful room in block H with sea & country views fantastic loved it..... Breakfast although busy lots to choose from a wonderful display of food plus cakes George manager made sure everyone was catered for.....We did not go half board but 6 Tavernas close by Savvas was very good though when we checked bill a 4.95 euros was added to the bill not gratuities but he said his tax bill that he had to pay on the meal...seems we paid it not him......Syros is a great place to chill out also took buses to Kini & Finika and town of Ermoupolis .......wonderful Island !!
The only hiccup was with Olympic holidays rep at Mykonos when landing at 1.15 pm he proceeded to give us ferry tickets for our onward journey to Syros for 8.45 pm nearly 8 hour wait he said just go into Mykonos with luggage have sit down nice lunch/ dinner.....Fortunately I had checked ferry time tables on PC before our journey there was a ferry to Syros via Tinos at 2.15 pm so told the unhelpful Rep after words were exchanged to take us to port straight away for that 2.15 pm ferry which we caught with 10 mins to spare ... We had to buy our own ferry tickets as it was a different ferry company to the tickets given to us by Rep but only 11 euros each worth it than hanging around in the hot weather for nearly 8 hours...... We arrived at Syros port an hour later .. then had to find a taxi to Hotel not a problem arrived hotel at 3.30 pm great .!!.... so don't be fobbed off at airport by Rep if you have time to catch 2.15 pm ferry to Syros it's only 5 mins by taxi from airport to port.....We would have spent far more euros having lunch /dinner /drinks in Mykonos plus we wouldn't have arrived at Syros until after 10.30 pm everything closed for food etc....... We had booked a twin centre holiday so after a week spent another great week in Mykonos wonderful !!!! 2 weeks holiday after hiccups
