Myself, husband and our 3 children stayed here for 2 weeks may/June
On arrival we were checked in quickly and taken to our room by buggy, we were shown the way back to the restaurant to have a bite to eat (at 12am), there were some cold meats, cheese and moussaka - enough to put us on till breakfast.
You have to pay a deposit for the air con which we were suprised at being an AI hotel.
We were in the experience part which I must say is the nicest part of the hotel - the only part that could justify anywhere close to a 4 star rating (although id still say 3 star)
Food was lovely - bit repetitive after 2 weeks, the kids loved the pancakes in the morning
Alcohol was very poor, spirits and liqueurs very weak, lager wasn't too bad
Kids club was ok until we learnt a member of staff had been swearing infront of the children which we reported
After our first 3 days a group of around 40 children on a school trip appeared from Czech Republic. The whole place then descended into chaos. You couldn't get round the pool, the bar staff couldn't cope with the extra demand (although they could have put an extra bar member on!.....) they took over the mini disco (aimed at younger children these were about 15/16 nearly stamping all over the toddlers)
The teachers were getting drunk 24 hours a day and the kids were kicking each other's doors in! Not what you expect for a family holiday
The Caberet show was abismal the worst I've ever seen. The Michael Jackson night was much better
Luckily we got a car for a couple of days and went touring the Island which I highly recommend especially driving to Kefalos it's beautiful!
Most of the staff were really lovely but we got the feeling they weren't treated very well by the hotel. I agree with most others about the reception staff disgusting and rude especially the curly haired woman with glasses and George who nearly ran us over with his buggy!!
All in all it was ok but would not return
