After a horrific 3 hour long transfer journey ( bare in mind 40-50 mins by taxi), we arrived in the early hours to our hotel. We proceeded to check in and were offered rolls and warm apple juice. Pleasant but after having such a nite mare getting there something stronger might have put us in a better mood!
We were then given a room at the far left of the building with little or no view at all . Not good considering We had paid xtra for a sea view .we then returned to the desk to receive yet another key to a room ,that when opened revealed an elderly man ,attempting to get to the bathroom . By this time very weary and irate we were FINALLY given the key to a very pleasant room. Be warned the beds are rock hard !! we asked for a few more pillows a few days later at reception and mentioned the firm bed and within a few hours they changed the mattress to a more comfortable one! No problem
From then on we found the beautiful views of the mediteranean sea, amazing ! the food at the buffet authentic and very tasty and of a good variety.
After hiring a scooter we discovered A few beautiful beach coves with soft sand and clear shallow waters. Ammoudara and alymnos beach to the left of the hotel, One we particularly liked was turn right out of the hotel and 10 mins away was vulissima beach , with spectacular turquoise blue crystal clear ocean . A perfect place to chill and relax on a lilo fantastic.
I have to say we spent the majority of the week at the beaches as around the swimming pool was non stop un relaxing music . A boat trip to spinalonger was interesting , make sure you take a hat and lots of water.
All in all this hotel was pleasant a brilliant location but a 4 star only!
