The location was right next to the sea, the property has potential. We didn’t have our own room we had to share our room with a family friend. No commodity- other rooms were offered water and juice.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We order transfer from the airport to the hotel, and the driver didn't come to pick us. The shower was too small for one average preson. In our first day there was not hot water to shower. The stuff was not nice, and didnt explain the facilities outside the hotel. In our first day, the hotel was full and the food was not enough for every one. The beach near to the hotel was to small and with small stones, so we prefered to go to somewhere else. we will not come back and will not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    We had exceptional service from all the staff at Diogenis , right from the driver Costas who picked us up from the airport, Stavros the manager, Dimitris and Maria. A special thank you to Levteris, who was outstanding, always greeting us with a smile and helping us with our queries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying at Diogenis Blue Palace.
