Returned to this hotel after enjoying it so much last year.On arrival our room preference which we requested by e-mail was met.A nice touch was a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit in the room to welcome returning guests.We also received a free drink in the Restaurant on the first evening as a welcome back.
There is a new resident chef and this might explain why the food was not as good as last year.
At breakfast all type of eggs are delivered overcooked with the exception of boiled eggs which are raw.If you are looking for a freshly cooked fried egg sunny side up then forget it.Non cooked items are fine.At dinner main courses are a disappointment with cheap dry cuts of meat and fish,other courses okay.Special mention for Kyriakos who is an excellent friendly waiter and worth his weight ion gold to the Hotel.Many of the returning guests felt that the food had deteriorated.
Sea view bedrooms and well appointed but not cleaned very well.We had dust in our room on fittings and surfaces that looked like it had been there for months.We were also messed around when trying to establish if we could keep on our room on day of departure.We were kept being told to come back later,so decided to forget it and spend the 42 euro cost on a nice lunch and drinks elsewhere.
The Hotel is apparently full until the end of September and prides itself on the volume of returning guests.Our view is that previous standards should be maintained or improved,and they have failed to do so here .
