I'll start by saying that the staff at the Nostos are wonderful. From the housekeepers to the manager, everyone is friendly and happy to help.

The down side of this hotel for me was our room. It was really damp. We were in a two bedroom apartment with our 3 children. I unpacked clothes at the start of the holiday but anything left out (over a chair or on the floor) was damp by morning. I put dirty clothes back in a suitcase on the floor and noticed as I was packing to go home that some of them had gone mouldy! My converse pumps were under a table in our room and were mouldy when I came to get them out ready to go home.

The food is average, except the breakfast which I would say was poor. It was often not hot but we all ate something every day so it wasn't terrible! Toward the end of out stay the chef was grilling meat in the evening which was all really tasty. My 'fussy' child basically lived on pasta for the holiday - I would have even welcomed chips as an alternative! Don't be fooled by the words 'snack bar' in the advert. The only food available outside of the main meal times were cakes and biscuits from 3-5 on a tray in the bar.

I can't say that we didn't enjoy our holiday because we did. The staff made the lack of facilities bearable, and did their best with what they had.

We booked the Nostos Mare Hotel (Not Gelina Village!!!!) after reading the mixed reviews on here.
I am so glad we did it was brilliant from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.
Staff - All friendly and super helpful. On my birthday the hotel presented me with a lovely birthday cake Free of charge which I cut and shared with all the kids at kids club that evening. What a lovely touch.

Housekeeping - Wow cleaners did an excellent job and all towels and bedding were changed 3 times a week!!! Our youngest son took his 2 favourite monkeys with him and every day after the bed had been made she left them cuddling or hugging or tucked up in bed My son loved the anticipation of what they would be up to each day it was a lovely thoughtful touch. Yes the cleaners had Sunday off ... So we had to make our own beds!! So what it's hardly an hardship don't we do it everyday at home anyways.

Kids Club - Wow Lisa,Max and the gang were amazing and there was always something on offer from 10am until midnight everyday for the kids if they wanted it. The hotel was very secure and you felt comfortable letting them walk unaccompanied to the separate building purpose built for kids club

Rooms / Apartments - we booked a 2 bedroomed apartment and we got a 2 bed appt. we had a total of 3 balconies. The room was fresh and clean and a very big bonus after many holidays on Greek islands was the excellent already included in the price air conditioning.

Food & Drink - Cannot fault the food and have to say there was always plenty of it and most days a wide choice of starters mains and desserts. Chef was always on hand to discuss any dishes with you and explain what they were etc. Ice-cream wasn't included in the all inclusive package but as it was available in abundance at mealtimes the kids had their fill then.
The drinks were LARGE measures and plenty of them. Yes it's local spirits wine beer etc but they were all quite acceptable.

The hotel pool was clean the sunbeds all safe and sturdy and the beach was just a stones throw away.
We understand this hotel is now part of the Gelina Village Hotel Resort. Well thank goodness we were not staying up there (we were approx. 5 minutes walk away from the main buildings and waterpark) When we walked up to the waterpark passed the very busy rammed pools we realised how fortunate we were to have such a peaceful relaxed atmosphere. We heard many negative reports about the food up there and the fact that it was far too busy to be enjoyable all the time.
Another bonus was just a 10 minute pleasant stroll took you into Acharavi which had an abundance of shops & restaurants for every ones budget.

If there has to be a Negative it would be that not enough British have discovered the NOSTOS MARE. We were very much in the minority (Thank goodness for Terry & Victoria & Boys from Liverpool). Russians and Germans were in the majority and unfortunately at times spoilt things for the children more than us with their rude and somewhat arrogant manners to both us and the staff around the hotel.
We feel we definitely had value for money this year and would revisit this lovely place again without a minutes hesitation.
The sunset every evening from the bar whilst enjoying a drink or cocktail was to die for and will stay with us for a very long time.
