The staff really do make this hotel. I would say this hotel is a 3/4 rather than solid 4* but don't let that put you off. The style of the hotel is lovely, very modern. But the finishing touches let it down a little. Paint on the carpets and doors etc.
Our room was on the 1st floor with a full sea view. The view was fantastic and there was no noise at all once the balcony doors were shut although you could here music from the strip if you left them open.
The rooms have a safe and air con, huge beds and a dressing table with huge mirror. The showers are a little small but sufficient. The maid visited daily to change towels, make bed, mop floor etc.
The food was a bit hit and miss. Breakfast quite good, lots of hot and cold options. I may be wrong but lunch felt a lot like leftovers from dinner the night before. Dinner was a little better and we always found something to eat. The food was 100 times better in the local restaurants and was always reasonably priced.
The pool is lovely and refreshing if not a little chilly! It's perfect after lying around in the hot sun though. There is entertainment, aqua gym, Aqua Zumba etc. the entertainment team are lovely but you can tell they have a low budget.
The bar staff, Dimitri, Michael and Marlon are all brilliant. They made our holiday. Great service with a smile and always in a great mood despite their long hours. A credit to Tsokkos.
The only complaint I do have was with Thomas Cook and is through no fault of the hotel. For some reason the transfer bus will not drop you off or pick you up from the hotel. You are simply dumped on the strip. The path to the hotel is very dark and uneven and is frankly unsafe. The rep didn't even apologise for this. There were many people with walking difficulties dragging there cases around. There's no reason that the coach can't get to the hotel....many many others did it every day.
I would recommend the hotel but would suggest a different transfer arrangements.
