This is suppose to be a four star hotel.
We chose this hotel after talking with a travel agent that recommended the hotel.
The revues in trip advisor also made us feel that we would enjoy he hotel.
When we arrived at noon / 1 pm and had to wait for two hours before we got our room. After one hour they let us put in our luggage in the room and we could chance to some other clothes. So we did and left for the closest beach.
The room was disappointing. Dirty. Old. Unpractical solutions. It was suppose to be an apartment, but it was a small bedroom with a freezer and a sink. There was no couch just one old uncomfortable chair. It was so small it was hard to find a place to put two suitcases. The bed was very hard. Didn't like the sheets.
The housekeeping didn't clean our glasses or plates during the week and they changed towels two or three times. Four star treatment?
The bathroom was very small! If it hadn't been for the cut they made in the bathroom door you couldn't even close the door. We also had dirty water from the pipes for three days during our stay.
There where two dogs running around in the hotel. The big one was tied up near our door and it jumped me two times during our stay (it just wanted to play) and the small one was loose (and cute and friendly). I love dogs, but I think it's strange that the owners dogs run around like that.
When you stay at this hotel you need to walk a lot or take a lot of taxi or rent a car. Everything is far away. The beach. The city. Restaurants. We chose taxi since the 1000 meter walk down the hill to the road is kind of heavy in the heat. You could walk down and take a bus but if the bus is full it doesn't stop. So we uses around 60 € in taxi every day.
The worst experience with this hotel was the total lack of genuine service! I think it's one family that run the hotel. There was no reseption just a bar where you constantly had to look for someone if you needed something. I don't know how to explain it but I felt unwelcome and one guy working there was kind of arrogance. The only staff I liked was the blonde lady who worked during breakfast. She smiled and was friendly. We also appreciated that they called for us since it was hard to order it from our phones (don't understand greek).
The pool looks pretty and it is so we got exited when we arrived there, but don't let that fool you. I would NEVER go back to this hotel. Not even for a free hotel stay.
