We stayed at this hotel June 2014, the hotel is small and is run by a family and the service feels personal, most of the staff are happy to help and willing to go that little extra. The hotel is clean and has everything you need, bar, pool etc, rooms do not come with Air-con as standard but can be included for a charge of 7 Euro a night ( well worth it) All inclusive food is served three times daily and all inclusive drinks are served from 10am till 12pm however paid drinks are available before and after this time. all inclusive drinks include beer, wines, soft drinks and local spirits such as raki and ouzo. Location is not bad with a short walk to the beach and the town of Hersonissos is a short walk or taxi ride away ( worth going to visit the aquarium/reptile center). The staff are Ok, in particular Connie is very friendly and helpful and Tony is quite possibly the best bar man on the island, very friendly, really funny and full of great conversation, i would return to this hotel just for him!
The only negatives i could think of for this hotel were the selection of food ( slightly repetitive) and the attitude of the older staff members, Evie told me off for taking too much (all inclusive!) food and the older couple, possibly the owners, shouted at us for making sandwiches from the all inclusive breakfast to take with us to the airport as we had a long wait before our flight, i think both of these instances were unfair as we had paid all inclusive and spoiled what could have been a perfect little holiday. i think this was just one bad experience and people should not be put off going because of this. This is a lovely quiet, charming hotel on a lovely island with mostly great staff and everything you need for a great holiday, this hotel is not full of clubbers, nor is it suitable for them. All in all a lovely holiday despite one or two minor incidents..
