We spent 12 days recently at the Astir Notos based on the positive reviews of previous guests on Trip Advisor. Our experience was similar to others and we were very pleased with our choice. The hotel was excellent, extremely well looked after and very well managed. The staff were friendly and efficient and were always willing to chat within reason. The pool area was well maintained and the pool itself more than adequate. We enjoyed the fact that the hotel was relatively small and, therefore, more intimate than usual package holiday fare. For teenagers, it might be slightly boring if there were no others of their own age, which is more difficult in a smaller sized hotel
Rooms were well kept and clean, and we personally found the beds firm but comfortable. Indeed, I slept better than at home, which is rare. We had a more than adequate bathroom and a balcony with a good view.
Our package was half-board. The variety was acceptable on any one day and some of the dishes presented were excellent, and mostly traditional Greek dishes. However, there were a few noticeably poor days in terms of the dinner choices and we think we might have been bored with breakfast in particular if we had stayed longer; the cereals were always the same as were most of the hot dishes. I think UK travellers would have enjoyed more cereal options.
Internet speed was excellent and available free in the lobby area and even around the pool. It was not free in the rooms, which was disappointing, especially as we enjoy listening to the radio via the internet in the mornings. The TV in the room was very small and the only channels in English were BBC World and CNN (plus CNN business). The television in the lobby was large and the hotel showed a range football games from the premiership and Bundesliga.
As non-smokers, we occasionally found the smoking on the dining room balcony and the lobby area unpleasant.
