Where to start? So we arrived on a Saturday night at 1.30am to be told there was a problem with our booking and our room was not available til Tuesday. So we were sent down the road to the roda which was very nice and also a 5 star hotel. Do not believe the 5 star rating for the Gelina, I've stayed at much nicer 3 star resorts. When we came back we were given a room that hadn't been cleaned. Plates of half eaten food everywhere, filthy beds, towels etc and a balcony with an ashtray on it surrounded by 2 square feet of bird faeces. When I complained we were given another room which they cleaned while we had a very bland lunch, not up to 5 star standards. The second room we got had been cleaned but had a broken shower and broken door lock on a door that wouldn't even close. When I spoke to the hotel manager about these problems, these were some of his comments. Birds are everywhere and we cannot clean up all the mess they make. My expectations of accommodation as a westerner are too high and that I could not expect to get a bathroom door that closed or locked in Greece. He also said the 5 star rating was meaningless and was allocated by the Greek government. When I suggested some basic carpentry lessons for his maintenance staff I was told to shut up and stop telling him how to do his job. The hotel management only post stock photos on their Facebook page and delete any negative comments from guests so you need to post where they can't delete your review like on here. We only have a 4 day stay at Gelina before we get to leave, I'd hate to be here for 2 weeks.
