Being a budget hotel and holiday I did not come with great expectations. However, the appearance and cleanliness of the San Marina is up there with some 5 star hotels I have stayed in on family holidays. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and happy to help with any problems you had. One who I believed to be the manager was occasionally angry if we made too much noise but I guess this is understandable.
Only a minute walk to the strip this is the perfect hotel for a girls/lads holiday as you get the full nightlife without any of the noise ; as soon as you closed your doors you could barely hear a thing. The location was perfect and the beach was right on your doorstep.
The rooms were lovely with all the facilities you would require. You do have to pay for air conditioning at 40 euros per room per week but I would highly recommend this.
The pool is clean and well kept and big enough that it doesn't feel cramped but small enough that you can make friends around the pool. The lady who works at the pool bar is absolutely lovely and the food there is cheap and delicious.
The only criticism I have of the hotel is that the breakfast isn't the nicest. It is very basic : bread, cheese, ham, greek yoghurt, two cereals and boiled eggs. It wasn't inedible but it wasn't great. However, if youre coming to Kavos for a party holiday you probably won't be awake to have breakfast anyway.
One other criticism is that the drain that was in our bathroom occasionally flooded as I think that the bathrooms used to be wet rooms so I would just advise you to not leave clothes on the floor.
Other than that it was a really lovely hotel and when you compared it to other hotels on the strip it was by far the best.
