Sept 2016 will not be forgotten. My sister and l in our early 50s and 60s had a wonderful time. The hotel was very family orientated if you are travelling with children in the school holidays. But if couples or more mature travellers looking for some quite relaxing time you wont be disappointed. The hotel staff are the best will...

Well I think this place is a little gem. If is a good walk to the beach but that's a good thing as I always eat and drink too much. The food was basic but nice. The pool area is great. Big enough and plenty of sunbeds. The biggest plus point was the staff, Maria is a lovely, she went...

Because we are used to all inclusive holidays elsewhere I think we expected a bit too much of this holiday. The holiday was cheap to start...

We just returned from Crete and I can agree with most of the positive reviews here. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful except the one lad at the reception but I think his English wasn't good enough to talk to us properly. The man at the dinner hall was funny and very nice and we never had to wait for...

We've just returned from our third visit to Hotel Despo and, once again, have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If your looking for a budget friendly, relaxing holiday this is the place to go to. For the price you pay this is excellent value - its not a four star, and everything isn't perfect but when you're paying B&B prices for all...
