Blocked drains that smell constantly on your balcony. Drilling at 6.55 am. Sea view rooms are not side view rooms. Hotel has no sea view rooms. Miwadi for breakfast replacing fresh juice. Food ok but disappointing choice apart from breakfast. V clean nice pool area, beach has a lovely view but dont try swimming with out protective shoes. 4 star premises. Could be better with attention to details. Cant blame the general staff they are v nice.

Great stay if you prefer outside the main town.
Generally, my stay was great—starting with my room (#400), which I highly recommend if you don’t mind having two single beds. The view is great (pool and ocean view). As always, there is one minor “problem” if we are picky. At one point I asked one if the younger server-helpers whether there was water available (because I asked after the breakfast buffet closed). Instead of going to check, he told me to go and check. The one server, Evaggelia, was fantastic!

Beach area did not match the photo it was rough and full of stones very difficult to actually get in the sea without hurting yourself, staff did not ask how our stay was and they charged us for an extra card for our room. The food was not 5 star standard looked like it was going stale. 3 star hotel at best.
