“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We decided to visit this pool for food and an afternoon chill by the large pool. We were in a group of ten so you think they'd be glad of the custom, but no , the English woman who served us was rude and acted as if every thing was too much trouble . This behaviour carried on throughout the day and at least six of our group thought the woman rude and grumpy. Obviously we didn't go back .

Stayed August 2014

Arrived at the Coliseum, to be informed about all the rules. That did take us by surprise, but hey-ho all fair rules and we respected those rules.
Had breakfast here everyday, plenty to choose from (had something different everyday). Jo was lovely and very helpful.
The rooms are very big and clean. And the shower is very good for a Greek shower! Big balcony as well and a clothes rack to dry your clothes.
The pool was massive, and there was no problem with getting a sun bed, I was up at 10am and plenty of sun beds left.
Would recommend the Zig Zag bar and Eclipse for drinks at night! We went there every night.
I would recommend this hotel to any age. Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay guys!

just got back from coliseum yesterday and can honestly say we had the best time ever, paul, jo, and danny made us very welcome nothing was to much trouble for them, our studio was huge, clean and had everything you need, our room was cleaned nd linen nd towels were changed regular will definatley be returning to the coliseum ( if they let my hubby lol ), the pool is massive and the biggest i have ever seen in greece plenty of sunbeds, jo and danny do a great job keeping everybody fed nd waterd and paul makes the best ans strongest cocktails ever :), the restaurant adjoining the coliseum is lovely and the food gorgeous best kleftico we have tasted, my hubby and i tried a few different things on the menu as did a lot of people who were staying at the coliseum and everything we had was 1st class beautiful food, all the waiters are very friendly and helpful so well done all of you, you definatley all deserved the 5 stars both coliseum and meditareaneo restaurant, excellent location to restaurants, beach and shops, will be returning with the family next year xxx

Arrived, you wonder down a path, no signs to say where to go, lucky holiday maker directed
us to the bar, did not get the meet and greet as Paul was not on duty,was not told about
mascara on towels or eating around pool or your food would be confiscated because of tax laws.
Best part a nice large room, double wardrobes lots of hangers good size balcony,there it ends
Coliseum needs maintenance work badly everything just works, one cleaner for all them rooms,
so its wiped not cleaned, bed linen and towels only changed every 4 days (one each) had to use
one of them for floor or slipping. My husband thought his sheet was a mosquito net because
it was so thin .When you sit round pool that's when you hear everyone complaints. Spoke to rep.
Steve. and said about conditions he did not want to know he was as much use as chocolate teapot. A/C a must as the music from near bar goes on to about 3am, so no windows open Would not go again unless it was brought up to date, what is just simply Greece, they are in the EU now so follow the rules like we have to The rooms should be checked that everything is working i.e. toilets flush lights in bathroom works no infestation of ants in bedding kettle work

Room Tip: go high better views

Me & my husband stayed here for 2 weeks (9/7/14), Great location, the apartments are a 2 minute walk into the centre & a 5 minute walk to the beach. I don't understand where all the bad reviews come from about these apartments, yes they are typically Greek (basic), but they are spacious, great size balcony & very clean, what more do you need. As for some of the negative comments about Paul the owner all I can say is he couldn't have been nicer to us, when we first arrived we were told that we were in a ground floor apartment, we prefer a higher one so we asked Paul if it would be possible to change it & it wasn't a problem, just had to wait 20 minutes while the maid finished cleaning it, So sat and had a beer ( not really a hardship) lol. The views were great, mountains on one side & the sea at the other, perfect. Fantastic amount of wardrobe space & storage. The pool area is lovely, plenty of sunbeds, lovely gardens & a great pool, All the staff who work there are really nice. All I can say is we are going back to these apartments next year, so Paul make sure you have a red wine & a Pefkos Dream waiting for us, oh & apartment 25 please lol. Trish & Andy Throupe

Spacious, clean accommodation - nothing fancy - typical Greek- but perfect for a week in the sun. Kitchen very basic with just essential cutlery/crockery. (but we didnt use it other than drinks in the fridge) - lots of place to eat out. Fantastic pool area, on site bar and good food available. Great location right off the main road. There is a bar close play that play music into the early hours but that wasnt a problem for us. Would definitely recommend this accommodati

Room Tip: I think all balconies dont catch much sun - which is a good thing based on the Greek s

Spent a great week. Spacious 2 bed apt with wraparound balcony. Comfortable beds. Kitchen very basic with just essential cutlery/crockery. Kettle too small for 3 people let alone for 4. Paul and staff made us very welcome. Position wonderful as so close to restaurants, bars, supermarket, bus stops and beach. Good value for money. Would definitely come again. Very large pool and well kept.

Room Tip: High rooms have better views.
