I didn't even have...

Another fortnight at Iapetos and it really does get better and better. Fabulous people and wonderful facilities. A big thank you to Sevi, Maria, Georgia, Dassos, Vassili and the entire staff. Hard to imagine how it could be improved on any way.

Positives: clean pool ( advertised as the only one on Glaros ), location ( 10 mins walk from where boats dock and 5 mins from harbour ), good air conditioning, friendly staff, good...
