I was last at this hotel 26 years ago for our first holiday abroad, had great memories and booked it 6 months in advance specifying I wanted the main Hippocrates hotel.
On arrival I was told I was not in the main hotel, unfortunately he's basically just a doorman and can;t do anything apart from take your details and give out your key, The next day I was told that the main hotel was fully booked and that I should come back later to see the manager, this happened a couple of times. I was only there for a few days and eventually was told that I was upgraded and the main hotel was full. This did spoil my visit.
So if you book direct and make a request don't take it for granted that they will comply because they have not got back to you.
On the plus side the complex and room was clean and well maintained, virtually all the staff do a fantastic job and are friendly. AlthoughI could not get a pool towel each time I asked, Always managed to get a sunbed somewhere around the Hippocrates pool tho I think the Maris suites was a bit tighter, I think the breakfasts and lunches were slightly better in the Maris suites complex but both were nice..
Bar staff in both were great. I think I preferred it in the old days when there was a piano in the corner and you paid for drinks. The bars emptied at 11pm when the AI ended.
The room fridges are re-stocked with water but not soft drinks and booze, the aircon is a little underpowered (An American gent was being quite abusive to staff because it did not work to his satisfaction, they kept their cool while he was being obnoxious)
It's still a great hotel for the price with easy access to the town centre
Personally the 26 year old memories were of a bigger grander hotel but that was just youths inexperience, I would recommend the hotel and complex but won't go back because of the lack of care with my requests
