I've said average but it was probably a bit more than that. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but we were told to visit the pool bar and have a drink and return to reception half an hour to an hour later. As we sat at the bar we watched a room being totally refurbished with new furniture,...

The hotel is quite remote although the bus service into Platanias is very good. Late May 2017 - this hotel is still a work in progress! There is still much to do although the public areas are almost finished & to a fair standard, providing the usual Mediterranean hazards are avoided ( plentiful steps to trip up or down). However...

I was extremely impressed with this hotel! Yes there were teething issues but they were resolved while we were there, there was a generator for the first few days and we did lose power but that has been resolved now as a cable was being laid. The rooms were immaculate and very modern. None of the power issues were the...

The spa was 2 tents. A generator was delivered and set up outside our room and next to the 'spa'. Staff very pleasant but stressed due to constant...

We had no hot water so couldn't use the shower or wash properly. No lighting for part of the night which was dangerous particularly if we needed to use...
