Reviewed 6 January 2009

Oh my life! Me and my friends stayed here for a week in 2007, it was just... special?
When we arrived our tour operator had to walk us down a hill to get to it, and forgot to stop at the 1st hotel, so left us to wait for him to come back for us, we were approached by a number of drunk, strange men at 6am. Eventually we got to our hotel and were kipping on sun loungers round the small pool at 9am when it opened. The hotel gate was locked at night, which was good because we were literally 2 metres from the main strip... great location for clubbing, not great for beach.

We found out from the hotel barman that the water in the pool had not been changed since May, bearing in mind this was September, and saw the owner throwing chemicals in the pool every night to clean it. By the time our week there was over, we were unable to see the bottom, the water was so murky. (thanks to the boys that arrived half way through our stay probably) But by then myself and one of my friends both had ear infections. By the time I got home I has an ear infection, throat infection and chest infection. Good times!

The cleaning was sporadic to say the least, the night porter just stood there looking at people, everyone referred to him as Lurch, for one night there was a man slumped unconscious at the gate and there was a pool of vomit by the gate for several days. There were ants everywhere and they seemed undeterred by anything. The staff weren't very friendly and the pool is overlooked by a list of rules to follow.

There was no toilet seat in our room, and the shower curtain enclosed both the shower and the toilet.

All in all, not great, but it was pretty cheap.... though wouldnt go again.

ahh i had the best time in Greece, went with 7 of my girls and it was crazy! we first got there and the staff were really friendly but as the week went on the staff just gave up and werent pleasant at all, rude infact but the apartment was basic but nice. it is a wicked place to go if u into your partying, the clubs qare literally about 10 steps away from the apartment and the bars are amazing! i met a few friends over there and i think we will stay in touch for a long time!
