    Bathroom very small. Just enough room to stand in the shower. Glass panel next to door had no curtain so room too light to get much sleep. Nice place to stay just not right for us as husband is disabled and not disabled friendly

    Cost of air con. Loud music played loud even though only about 4 people in bar area.

    It was a quick last minute break. Rooms are basic but clean. It’s on the main road next to a mini market. The bar played loud music til early hours two nights which isn’t ideal if you’ve got small kids. Great if you want to stay up late. Air conditioning is extra and at 9 Euro per day very expensive as an add on. Even in May we needed it, but it wasn’t the best either.

    The showers did not have head holders so could be a little awkward but easily solved by purchasing a suction holder.

    The staff were incredibly friendly and the pool area was always clean and tidy.

    I arrived early in the morning and there was no reception, no number to call and I didn't received any information that they didn't work 24h. So I had to wait on the street for 3h until someone appeared to open the hotel. It's full of mosquitos that bited every part of my body that was uncovered.

    "3 stars hotel"??? No way..maybe one and a half star..although I'm generous.. The furniture in our room (221 if I remember well) was very old..not even close to the one in the pictures. The walls were a little bit dirty and kind of smoked..In the bathroom it was horror: very small place, also the sink, the toillet and the shower were looking old and very used..At least the towels and bed sheets were clean, but they were not at all white..maybe grey or something. About the cleaning ladies..what can I say..they were absolutely non-professional. Entering the room when you and your partner were inside, showering or sleeping (16:00 pm) and even if you told them not to enter because you don't need anything (they didn't understand english by the way)..they continue to enter the room, change the towels and the sheets and also clean the floor while we obviously had to go to balcony..

    The view from balcony was the only thing that I Iiked on this property.

    Attention need to bathrooms

    Pool area very crowded struggle to get bed. Aircon was very poor and could only be felt if you stood directly under it. Bathroom was a slip hazard with no shower screen and completely flooded when shower was in use. Whilst i understand the concept of a wet room the flooring in the bathrooms was not fit for this and became dangerously slippy when wet. The front door to the room was full length opaque glass with no blind so although you could not see in directly if you were in there with the light on you could be clearly seen from the landing. Also light streamed in through it in mornings. No information for early morning check out, reception was closed so just had to leave key in room and leave room open

    The food and drinks at the bar were very nice and good value. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    The parking was not in the hotel. It was a backyard behind the hotel. The car was totally insecure there and I end up Parking on the road in front of the hotel. The wifi wasn't enough for all the guests of the hotel. I stayed 5 days and I was never able to connect on the wifi. I have to mention that the parking and the wifi was high on my requirements and the hotel was wrong mentioning that has both of them because it didn't. The use of the aircondition costs 9 euro per night extra. The cleaning services were mediocre. They took the towel and they didn't left us a clean one and there was no soap and things like that on the bathroom. Totally not recommended and definetelly not value for money.

    Good location of the hotel. It was near Zakinthos.

    My friend and myself visited for four days/ five nights at end of September, we had two rooms, a double and a twin, a bit of a last minute deal. The staff were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to our departure. The rooms, the overall look of the accommodation and location were exactly as described and shown online, no clever photography or 'creative' descriptions. Our rooms were cleaned daily, including a change of bedding. Overall it did exactly what it said on the tin therefore I wouldn't hesitate in visiting again or recommending Sofia's as a great base for a longer Holiday or a short stay.

    Very poor wifi connection, basically it doesn't work at all. Be aware that air conditioner costs 9 euro. A way to a beach takes about 10-15 minutes.

    A room is nice, quite large and light. There is pretty decent bar and swimming pool as well as sun beds as a part of hotel complex. An area nearby is full of restaurants and bars. It's very vibrant.
