The hotel was excellent and you felt in it you received value for money and were very safe as a tourist.However the rest of the Island is a rip off made worse by their bad economic situation .They were always trying to rip you off as a Tourist to make themselves money as they are so desperate for cash.The whole Island is the law of the jungle and this is very obvious on the roads.I am a superb Driver and an advanced motorist and we hired a Hertz car.The car was sound and the car hire company good apart from us paying £400 for a weeks car hire fully inclusive of a Insurance that we were told was not the case when we collected it from the Airport.We had to pay another £245 for fully comprehensive Insurance.I am SO glad we took it out as they drive like lunatics.No one pays attention to speed limits .they undertake you as well as overtake you.Dont care if you drink and drive and nearly all of the cars are bashed up.They look like and drive like they have a dodgem car.The highlight of the holiday was seeing and driving up the SS92 up Mt Etna that was in eruption while we were in Grandi Naxos.Two days after we went to the very top Tourist were forbidden as the Volcano was determined too unstable. I would never go back to Scilly.You can see how the Maffia sprung up.You hardly ever see the Police and when you do you can't trust them which is a ghastly feeling.Food like all of Italy fantastic but at a price .I was in Barbados Hilton last yr value for money and FANTASTIC .
Excellent service. Great rooms all very different. The staff were great and helped with booking trips, transport and were very helpful. The breakfast in the morning was a good selection. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend.
Perhaps the best way to describe our stay begins with an email I sent explaining that my girlfriend and I had stayed at the hotel some 4 years previously, loved it and were now returning for a special celebration with our mother who was elderly and had difficulty walking. I requested rooms with a sea view for all of us. When we arrived, the staff had taken the time to trace the room we booked previously and arranged a wonderful room for our mother next to us. This was such a thoughtful gesture and made our holiday bliss.
Now, what I would like to add is a comment about expectations. Hotel Nike is a 3 Star hotel not 5, yet i saw a painful amount of appalling behaviour directed at hotel staff because they didn't provide cooked breakfasts, this or that feature etc. Over a span of 4 years, the same staff remained, were always accommodating and very friendly and despite any wear and tear, the cleanliness is excellent. If I had a criticism, it would be of the rudeness of some of the guests.
