Well, we arrived at the Athena and were taken to our bottom floor room. All seemed fine apart from a few problems we had promptly cleared up by Paul the next day. My friends pillow had a very ominous red stain on it. This was swiftly changed. We had problems with the kettle being covered in lime-scale and the dishes not looking clean, however, Paul told us this was due to the minerals in the water and it was simply water marks. We also got a brand new kettle! The rooms are basic but you get what you pay for!
Apaert from that first day I cannot fault the Athena in the slightest. The staff were excellent, especially the bar boys when serving us many cocktails! The food was fine and a reasonable price too. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, as was the pool area. Never a problem getting sunbeds and the pool was a decent size.
The best thing was that the supermarket was joined on to the hotel grounds, which was extremely convienient for carrying water etc. Good selection of british foods for your room too.
It is a little bit of a trek down to the village but I believe we were the closest hotel to it. Beware the slippy pavements and crazy driving!
I will recommend the Mythos restaurant! It was absolutely amazing and had lovely views of the Acropolis. The food and the service were excellent and a reasonable price too.
All in all I had a fab time and would definitely recommend to anyone for a lazy break.
