Well where do I start! This was certainly not the '5 star luxury hotel' I expected from the internet reviews and pictures, far from it! Firstly this hotel is out on a limb, don't be conned by '5mins from the town centre' it might be by bus but its a good 3 mile walk to the centre through a run down and neglected area! On arrival to our 'superior room' I immediately rang reception to say I think they had given us the wrong one, the receptionist assured me that this was a superior room and the only difference with a 'superior deluxe' was that it was 5cm bigger! The room was small with just a couple of wardrobes, no drawers or additional storage space. The living area was a tiny hard two seater settee and chair plus tiny table, not enough room to sit and relax! The vast pools are basically ornaments..look but don't touch.. or do so at your peril they are freezing, I saw one person in the pool all week!... and don't be conned into using the indoor pool it's no warmer and at an additional cost of 10 euros per person a completely unjustified additional cost! Whilst I am talking costs be prepared for the extortionate bar prices, hence the bar area being completely empty by 10.30pm even though it is open until 1.30pm... or maybe that was the lack of entertainment and continued 80's pop music being played! I'm afraid the restaurant is far from 5 star, a large selection of heated up, tasteless, mush which alternated from pork to beef every night with pasta, rice, salad and veg dishes, to accompany, no imagination! I can't comment on the spa as we did not use, the price list put us off that! On a positive note, the staff were friendly and helpful especially Dimitrius and Asta in the bar, we would of liked to have spent more time being entertained by them but the prices put a stop to that! Oh, nearly forgot to mention the hotels 'private beach' actually, just avoid! Dirty, rubbish strewn and surrounded by leering fishermen! My advice to anybody who still plans to visit this hotel or island, buy your own drinks from the supermarket, stick with B&B (the toast was good!), and never visit a restaurant in town that has pictures of its food outside! Pre hire a car before you arrive, highly recommend Tam Tam beach/bar and Paradise Beach as days out! I'm afraid this is one hotel I would not re-visit and would not recommend, I only hope all the people we chatted to whilst we there who felt exactly the same come on here and put their honest reviews on too
