Overall, I adored the More... although with the way our stay started, you might not expect me to say that. On arriving at the hotel we were shown on to the terrace, with its beautiful view over Lapad bay, and offered a complementary drink... nothing too bad there, you may think. However, we were then welcomed by Nikolina (who was absolutely adorable throughout our stay) , but whose fearful expression foretold that bad news was afoot. Indeed... no room available for the first night of our stay! You can imagine our reaction! Fear not, she said, as an apartment was available not 500m from the hotel where we could stay for the first night. We could then come back to the hotel for the rest of the week. And to compensate us for the inconvenience she offered us an A la carte meal at the retaurant. So, packed into the hotel limousine, we were driven off to the apartment. On arrival, we found it to be located in a delightful old villa, in the centre of the resort, within its own grounds, and just a lovely 10 minute walk away from the hotel. It was so nice we stayed there the whole week!
As for the rest of the hotel: setting is delightful, beach and pool areas are small, but what can you expect when the hotel is set into a cliff face. The beach bar, which is in a cave under the hotel, has just opened, and is incredible with its stalactites and rock formations. Biggest drawback for us was the service ( I can vouch for the commentary of "Not 5 star" of June 20th, as we were sat just alongside them at the beach, when they were treated to service that even Manuel from Fawlty Towers would have struggled to emulate. Its not that the service is terrible (indeed there are some super people - Nikolina, as I already mentioned; one of the waiters at breakfast, who remembering that we drank Earl grey, brought us our tea each morning without even asking; and last but not least Madam L - I feel so guilty for forgetting her name - who looked after us so well and treated us like family at the apartment), no, its just that the service is inconsistent. So if the More can train ALL its staff to the standards that some of their employees showed, then it will truly merit its 5 stars. I'm dying to go back to find out if the've succeeded...
