    Despite visible attempts to refresh, some floors had their good times in the 90s. In the room itself, and more accurately in the bathroom, these tests are visible. The beach seems to be small for such a large hotel. From the early morning sun loungers are already stocked with towels for larger organized tours.

    Localization and the greenery between the hotel and the beach. Very good breakfasts and meals in restaurant near beach.

    the food was good, but prepared to accommodate French people. The gardens were dirty and the whole hotel was under heavy construction. The location was a little strange compared to other location in this beautiful nation. No sauna or spa...

    The staff at the hotel was the best people we found in the whole area. Everyone was willing to help and give directions. The room was large, clean and and well kept. The view from the room was awesome and very relaxing.

    • Submitted via mobile

    The rooms were outdated, we had a two bedroom apartment and the bathroom only had 2 small lights above the sink. There was also an active leak above us that kept dripping into the garbage can. I had to use my flashlight on my phone to shave in the bath, plus they don't offer a location to hold the shower handle, pretty standard stuff to international travelers. Overall, the Hotel is so outdated and the rooms lack any style that others around have. The pool needs to be upgraded, basically the whole place was like we were living in the 70s. And EVERYONE SMOKES!!! We have small children and don't smoke so that was not nice, but Europeans don't care to regulate as much as the US. The oil refineries are also located across the water which was not shown in any pictures.

    It has a little play ground on site, a game room, and events for families. The buffet offered enough variety we actually ate too much every day and didn't have to venture out. It has a beautiful patio too and we ate at the beach restaurant which had great food as well. The beach is small but efficient we could watch the little kids very easily.

    Almost everything, the hotel is represented like a 4 star and if I we refer to the international standard it would hardly be a 2 stars... It was probably a very good hotel in the 80' but not anymore... It is not clean, the fournitures in the room were falling apart, the pool is not confortable, it faces an industrial port... quite a poor stay...Lukily we were there only a couple of nights.

    There is absolutely no consideration for guests who have walking impairments, such as elderly guests and guests with physical disabilities. My parents stayed here for 5 days and they could never swim in the sea because there are about 30 stairs leading to the beach WITHOUT a railing or a ramp. I find this unacceptable and gravely inconsiderate. I was very disappointed.

French & Greek theme foods. Well cooked, fresh, variety. *4-5pm bar free drinks - enjoy on grass terrace overlooking the ocean - wonderful views. Although bar men need to learn to be polite, friendly and smile! *Reception staff very helpful, speak English & French. *Large pool, sun beds. *Hotel private beach & eatery with many seating options around hotel. *very popular large hotel - especially with French and Greek Sport teams. little run down, 1970s theme walls/bathrooms, needs upgrade. *kids games room - table tennis, games, boccee, tennis, basketball courts. lots to do for kids. pool is great, clean, lots shade. * rooms large, balcony, quiet, clean, wi-fi, tv. showers good hot water, lots bench space and cupboards. *basement toilets & conference rooms are nice. with wonderful Greek God statues lit up-nice touch. Close to main attractions: 10 min drive to corinth canal 10 min drive to Loutraki mineral springs beach. 30 min drive to lake & pine forest (spectaular, recommend to do, good to swim too, local taverns)

I was only glad I was not within the tourists that flew to get there. For me it was an easy escape from Athens my city. The hotel is old 4 star just ok but the view and area were disastrous. Bookings should do something about this and either have them put a pic of the view and therefore the proximity of the refinery or get them expelled from their hotel list.
