“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

We booked a room at this hotel at August 2013 , we paid about 100,00 euros per day and we thought that we would stay at a 4 star hotel.When we arrived we searched for the private parking in the hotel area as it was written on the website info , but then the owner told us that we have to park our car outside in the public road in an area with not enough free space, because eventually the hotel had no private parking.
When he showed us the room we saw a tiny room with 2 separate beds (we asked him a double bed) , with an awful bathroom ,without a balcony just a window which faces the wall. The window didn’t have a clothes horse, so I asked him where to put my wet towels or swimsuits and he told me I could dry them in the public hotel area, on the pool handrails . Our room could not connect on the internet. I went to the reception and asked him to change our room with another which at least had a balcony ,but he told me in a very rude way that he didn’t have any empty room ,but I knew there were many empty rooms. When I decided to leave my luggage’s to our room , I realize that the card system was broken and we didn’t have electricity , I went for second time in the reception and asked him to send someone to fix it ,then he sent me an electrician which tried for one hour to fix it ,putting different objects in the card system ,like paper. Finally they fixed it (look the photo to find the way-they put a carton). The next morning we go for our breakfast at 9:00 am and it was very poor. So we realized that we had to leave this horrible hotel as soon as possible. Thank god we made our reservation by international agency and we could take the money for the rest 3 nights back.You should think twice if you want to book in this hotel. This place has nothing to do with a 4star hotel.

The staff was helpful. Rooms were small (could only accomodate 2 people, so a family of 4 needed 2 rooms) and old fashioned but clean. It had an elevator for ease of moving suitcases. The hotel also had a swimming pool, and free wi-fi in the lobby and on the pool deck only. Hotel is situated on a very nice beach.

This hotel is very good. It has nice (but small) and clean rooms overlooking the beach, so obviously, a beautiful unobstructed view.
The owner is very nice and helpful to find a place to park. His daughter in law, who spends the whole summer in the hotel, is American, very kind and professional.
Breakfast is OK (tasty Greek yoghurt, honey, fantastic bread as often in Greece,good coffee...) and can be enjoyed on the outside terrace in front of the sea.
Across the quiet road, access to the beautiful beach where sunbeds and umbrellas can be rented.
This place's worth its price.

Awful rooms! The beds are not comfortable at all.No space in the room.It is difficult even if you want to go from the bathroom to the balcony.The colours, the old, cheap furnitures and the few lights gives you a very depressing mood. Bad maintained bathroom. No soundproofing. There was a lot of noise from the road in front of the hotel and from the music of the bar, next the reception, and the people who staid late at night talking and laughing there.
Bad service! The breakfast was at least unacceptable! Very expensive for nothing!

When we arrived to this village we were completely blown away by it's beauty. The hotel is located on the best part of the beach and the place was very comfortable, clean and the staff was friendly. What more can you ask for?

I thought resorts like this one had all disappeared. We found the hotel to be spotlessley clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous and the staff were all helpful and friendly. The hotel was a bit pricey but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and even extended by a day to make the most of it. I would definitely go there again.
