First of all I just want to say that we had a lovely 2 week holiday in Perissa staying at Hotel Rena, but I do feel like there are a couple of points that they could improve on.
Our room was quite small on the first floor but wasn't that upset as we didn't plan to stay in our room too much. It was cleaned every day, but I feel that sometimes it could have had a bit of a deeper clean i.e wipe the sinks, taps and mirrors more often, clean the floor thoroughly. Also the smell coming up from the drains was quite bad on a daily basis. In the entire 2 week holiday our bed sheets where not changed once. Apart from that though we did appreciate the cleaning service. Also our mattress was extremely hard, me and my partner both have back problems so we were in quite a lot of pain trying to get to sleep.
Breakfast was quite a stressful experience. The first week was ok, as it was quieter but the choices are very limited. I'm vegetarian and don't eat eggs so the only thing I could really eat was toast with Jam. Some of the containers to hold the food for breakfast where quite messy and had flies buzzing around them which put me off. The breakfast area is extremely cramped and with breakfast only being from 8am-10am most mornings it was packed all of the time. Also some of the other guests we encountered where quite rude and kept stealing our table, even though we'd already put our stuff down on it. I would suggest that they utilise the court yard area just outside and put some extra tables and seats out there for when it's busy, and also extend the breakfast times to make this less stressful. Another thing is that they seemed to play the same 5ish songs of very obscure music at breakfast (which included lots of wailing and sounds of a baby crying!) which for the first few days we thought was quite funny but by the second week I couldn't take any more of it and boycotted breakfast for the rest of my stay.
All in all this didn't ruin my stay there, but I think sometimes the finer details are important!
A plus point is the location, it's very close to the beach so not much walking involved to get there, and also there where no steps or steep hills to navigate around which is great for people with mobility issues.
