Spent a week here in August 2016. Would agree that Greek 4* is not equivalent to UK 4*, but I kind of expected that. The room we had was fine, quite large, decent bed and bathroom was fine. Air con worked very well (we left it on all day so it was cool when we got back). Cleaned daily to...

But really very little need to leave. 3 amazing salt water pools. Amazing food. Breakfast included. 13e for buffet lunch and dinner.... all with the freshest ofor...

the location was amazing, with Plakias and Damnoni beaches so close and its own wee cove its paradise. price seemed just a tad steep but for august it was to be expected for a weeks stay. breakfast was plentiful and the facilities are fantastic for a get away. really made my partners first time to Greece special.

Location is fantastic:quiet beautiful sea breeze and excellent snorkelling/scuba in clear waters. Even in August was easy enough to find some deck chairs. Reception staff all helpful+polite. Spa centre is very pleasant and relaxing. Waiting staff are, generally, not welcoming. They seem irritated to serve and are quite grumpy. I read reviews beforehand about exactly that and just assumed the...

Great potential but not applied. The view is great, amazing, but you might as well bring a tent, or pay for a hotel ranked not mor than *** stars. Even less. The rooms are outdated (80's). The tv is the size of a shoe box, the bathroom stinks of piss. There is a kitchenette but without anything. I mean anything!...

We went there with the belief it is 4-star hotel. We came there at about 3 in the morning and they offered us some snacks in the restaurant. The place looked terrible especially at night. The ceiling is covered with some grey cover. In the morning when we saw the place it looked much better and when you sit outside...
