What a pity that they chose to put this hotel in this location . Outside of the hotel complex , the surrounding area was horrendous . Inside the complex the hotel was mostly well appointed with a beautiful outdoor eating area complimented by very pleasant and helpful staff . The long corridors in the part of the hotel we stayed in resembled a prison block and when uncaring people closed the doors it also sounded like one . The noise was incredible and you had virtually no chance of a full nights sleep . Evening entertainment was poor , usually consisting of a singer in the bar which was never full as it lacked atmosphere . The beach was non existent . It was at best approximately 2 / 3 metres wide except for the people in the private apartments who were given more than enough space for their needs . To one side of the hotel there was a wide and spacious beach that could have been developed but unfortunately it was over grown and strewn with rubbish . A total lack of thought in locating this hotel on this site . Gouves is at best dire !!! The Grecotel group must have got this land cheaply . The food was excellent although the drinks in the bar were a little pricey .
