Went to Agios Nikolaos to attend a friends wedding at a different hotel.
We booked the Hermes through Thomas Cook and paid the extra for a sea view room, this was well worth the extra cost, we were on the 7th floor and had no noise at all. Beautiful view of the bay and cruise ships dock in the port here which we could see from our room. The room was dated but very comfortable, we found the beds fine and the fridge in the room was very welcome. Also the safe is free. Towels and bed linen changed regularly by a very happy and smiley maid. The food was good and plentiful, they had 3 BBQ's during our stay which were all nice. The pool here is quite small with half of it being extremely deep. During our first few days there were no problems getting a sun bed but, by our last few days it was very very busy with not enough sun loungers for all the guests.
Agios Nikolaos is lovely, plenty of shops selling a variety of goods. ( Shops selling fur coats which we never saw anyone buying ).The lake area is beautiful and surrounded by bars and restaurants.
The transfer from the airport to the hotel was 2+ hours which would put us off visiting this resort again.
We are in our fifties and felt comparably young as this hotel caters mainly for Saga guests and older couples.
If you don't mind the very long transfer to the hotel and back then this is a really nice resort.
