We booked this online, and I could barely find a single review/picture of the hotel! We were extremely worried that the inbetweeners movie was going to be us, but obviously it wasn't! We were taken to our room by the rep, who proceeded to try and sell us the excursions for £190, obviously we didn't book them all, but as this was our first holiday we decided to spend £75 on 2 of them, one of which was pointless but only because I was so drunk I went home within 10 minutes lol!
We paid extra for a larger room, so we had a kitchenette, which included a fridge, a kettle, a sink, plates/forks etc, and a hob, but the rep warned us not to use the hob so technically we didn't have a hob lol!
The beds were like bricks, but by the second night we were that drunk that it didn't even matter! The shower is hand held, and the bathroom was constantly flooded, so don't leave your clothes on the floor! As you probably know, you can't flush the toilet roll, and the toilet roll is NOT provided so do bring some in your case!!!
You can purchase the safe in the super market for £10 downstairs, which I will highly recommend purchasing as you will end up with so many random people in your room, even if you say you won't lol! and air con is £40 for the week, but once you've been there for a few days it makes no difference for air con, which we didn't bother buying.
Our balcony was huge, but this was because we had a double room! And you can smoke in the hotel, no one cares!
There are 2 parts to the hotel, we were in the block with no pool, but it didn't really matter because the other block is literally across the road so it's not that far at all!
The hotel bar next to the pool sells food, and drink, but you can't bring in food and drink because the supermarket owned by the hotel charge like 50 cents cheaper for everything so they have ago at you haha!
Make sure you bring bite cream and stuff because you will get bit! My cousin had to get an injection because she had an allergic reaction, but there are medical centres everywhere, you could see one from our balcony, and my cousin went to the famous kavos emergencies and saw the man from the telly!!!
The cleaner wasn't very nice, she kept shouting at us because we kept having parties in our room and making loads of mess, eventually she just said she wasn't cleaning our room again and that was the end of that hassle!
The hotel is actually really quiet, it is literally on the strip but its 1 minute walk from most of the loud bars so you can actually get some sleep! TKD Rodneys is across the road so go and get a melon!!!!
The hotel does have a weird smell, of toilet, but you get over that after the first day!!!
Basically this place is very average, but I feel like our room was actually better than we paid for! We met every single person in the hotel and had a fantastic time!
