I cannot describe how good this hotel is! Oh god! I went on 2wenty's holiday with my friend in September and reluctantly booked in to this hotel. I knew it was a Plush hotel but I wasn't too sure about what I though about it. (I work in travel so I've upped my standards to snobs level) but this literally is the best hotel I've ever stayed in.
When we arrived we were greated by our fab reps Rob and Hayley who took us through to the reception to check in. Yan (Yan the man) checked us in and gave us a good lecture on breaking things, hours that the hotel didn't appreciate screaming and shouting etc, rules blah blah blah. He gave us a sheet of paper that we were to mark off what was missing/broken in our room. We were only missing a glass which was alright (but I soon smashed that).
Our room number was 117 (on the first floor). We hired out the aircon, fridge and safe which was well worth the 150 euros. Our rooms were fab. 3 beds for the 2 of us which come in handy when one of us puked in the bed ha! Rooms were clean, spacious, bright and the bathroom was great. Steamed up a fair bit though when you got a shower. Nearly broke my hands trying to open the balcony door though. It was a proper task. Our view wasn't the best tbh, we were over the top of pizza hut/kfc so it stunk a bit and we could see the gypsy kids on the strip begging. We found them amusing though... hah! We found the phone in our room great. Could ring people for free and organise when to meet etc.
The bar was great. The bar man Zak was a bit of a tool to be honest, but he was lovely. He likes to lie about his age girls... he's 22 don't be believing otherwise hah! Heart of gold on the lad. He makes ace drinks. But the bars really pricey. Food there is good too!
Breakfast was diabolical. Bread was stale and the yogurts and jam etc were warm. We only ate there 3 times... we preferred a kebab for brekky or a maccies because we're classy!
The pool was bloody freezing, but there was so many lilos you literally didn't have to physically get in. Pool was chocker, hardly any beds but it was still good. Beware of the wasps by the way, and you can't bring your own drinks by the pool! Money money money.
Just to make you aware, theres the security guard called Adonis. Omg, I wouldn't get on the wrong side of him. He literally is the scariest human being I have ever met. But at least you knew you were safe in the hotel. I come back dripping wet one night cos it had flooded that bad and I thought it'd be hysterical to jump in the puddles cos I was that intoxicated! He had a right go at me and wouldn't let me back in to the hotel, and me being me (a scouser) I decided that no-one would shout at me like that and had a screaming match with this Greek man. He eventually won, and made me dry off in the lobby before handing me my key back and letting me go to bed. Honestly... do not mess with this man!
Please be aware, that if you get the slightest stain on your sheets you WILL get fined. Tbh, I can't blame them cos they need to keep up with the standards of the hotel.
Make sure if you do the messy 2wentys hols that you deffo book on to the parties and bar crawls! Too fun!
Overall, we had an absolute ball here and I would love to go back in a few years!
