I have just returned from a wonderful week long break at hotel Despo, I travelled there with my partner, I was very nervous about going there as it has some bad reviews, Well dont believe what you read, The hotel was spotlessley clean throughout, The staff were very friendly George on the bar was so funny and spoke to all of us guests making jokes and entertaining us, Maria on reception was lovely and always helped if there was any problems,
The pool was one of the best ive ever been to, its in direct sunlight all day so its very warm,The seating area around the pool was very clean,
The gardens were very pretty with lots of flowers,
The food was basic but tasted fine, lots of beautiful salads and always feta cheese, Breakfast is continental with breads toast, cheese ham jams ,salad, usually hot scrambled eggs as well,
The all inclusive drinks only included local brandy ouzo racki beers and wines, also after 1030 you have to pay for your drinks, Lots of soft drinks availiable, ice cream to die for between 3pm and 6pm.
The rooms are basic but clean towels and linen changed twice a week,There are some dungeon rooms in basement which we were told about they were not nice,Our room 305 was lovely it was on the first floor ,
We hired a safe which was 3 euros a day and the aircon was 7 euros a day when the tempreture reached 37c you need it,
The only problem i would say is the sunbeds get filled quick so u need to be up early.
You have a busy road to cross outside the hotel to reach the beach which is a 15 min walk away, The beach is lovely and
the sea idylic .
I f you fancy a nice relaxing meal away from hotel Rainbow bar directly across the road is highly recommended
We would have no problem returning to this hotel we had a lovely week relaxing around the pool,
If you expect British food dont come here, rember this is Greece and its Greek food,
