3/5 Okay

Disliked: Staff & service
The property is dated but relatively well maintained. The problem with this place is that one can get breakfast, or 3 meal plan but apparently there is an exclusive plan as well. What does this mean? It means that while you can preety much have any drink at breakfast (water (sparkling), any juice, coffee, hot chocolate etc) if you sign of for the 3 meal plan any form of drink for lunch or supper is charged to your room! Utterry ridlcuous and a scam. It is in fact against the law ot deny anyone a glass of water if they ask for one at any restaurant in Canada, but apparently not so in Greece. Furthermore, one is hounded by staff for our room number at every meal and then the pressure to purchase a drink. They even go so far as to put boards around the water, juice, coffee that they setup for breakfast so that you can't access those. We fell into this trap for teh frist meal and were gobsmacked y the fact that water is deemed to lie outside of the three meal subscription. And watch your bill! we were charged for drinks we did not take. I refused to pay, I asked the duty manager to show me the chits bearing my signature confirming that I had taken a drink (that the servers hounded one for) and of course he could not. Slimy behaviour, some of the servers are dishonest. I discussed this with numerous other customers and many intended to complain. Don;t get me wrong, if I wanted a beer or a glass of wine, I would expect to pay; water, juice, coffee on a 3 meal plan? No!
