We booked a Superior Side Sea View (830 € 4 nights!) in July for our honeymoon. (If you book a 4 stars you do not expect "bad surprises"...)
As soon we arrived they offered us a welcome drink at the bar and everything seemed to be great (a part from very angry customers at the reception complaining for the lack of hot water). The restaurant/bar and the beach are amazing! Even if we expected real "beach accomodation" (directly on the beach) as written in the Web site.
When the recepetionist showed us our rooms we remained speechless.
In front of the door, on the ground, there was a folded towel (like a doormat) and the receptionist promptly explained us that it was to avoid “little bugs” to enter the room.
The room was actually a “garden room” with NO SEA VIEW (we had "pool and fence view").
When we got into the room we couldn't believe our eyes (see pictures provided).
There were 4 dead bugs on the floor, the room was a 2 stars room (the wardrobe with a curtain? very outdated and ruined furniture) and the bathroom was not adequate (bath without curtains, rusty mirror, no space to put things…). We went immediately to the reception to ask for a better room, but the receptionist didn’t take us seriously (“hey, don't you like little bugs? Of course, this is a garden room!”) and told us that he would leave a note for the manager, without fixing the problem that day. When we came again in the room after dinner we also found a big spider…
The day after the manager came and offered us a standard room (of course at the same price and without apology - and, I would add, because our travel agent called them).
The other room was very small but, at least, the furniture was a little bit better. But the BIG PROBLEM was the bathroom! A part from being terribly small, the shower curtain was dirty and "brown", the toilet paper holder was rusty (disgusting! How much does a new paper holder cost?) and the mirror as well…
Furthermore, on Saturday night there was a big concert organized by the hotel and the municipality directly under the hotel…so we could not sleep until 4 am and the day after we had to wake up early. I understand the situation, but maybe we would have appreciated to know it when we booked the room.
Furthermore, the restaurant is very expensive and the menu a little bit "limited".
To sum up: a nightmare! The pictures on their Web site are deceiving and this is not a hotel I would go back to. It is really expensive! I would pay 20 euros per night maximum.
As another user said: I would even say that my image of the whole Santorini island has been spoiled because of this hotel! And our honeymoon was ruined!
