Gouves Bay Hotel, Gouves
Out on a limb - Simon. Date of travel: Jun 2007
First impressions as the taxi turned in to the hotel grounds were not favourable; barren wasteland and a hotel exterior that needed a new lick of paint. However, first impressions are not always accurate. The room we were given was small, but clean and tidy (and we were given a free upgrade to a double bed). You are expected to purchase a remote for the air conditioning (5 per day) but I was given that free (I mentioned that I work for a Greek Company so that probably helped) The room was cleaned every day and new towels received every two days. We had a sea view, as I believe most rooms did. The beach was in fact only about 100 metres away although it was rocky and pebbly with a splattering of sand. Breakfast was pretty standard every day, ie. lots of bread, cereals, cheese, meat, olives, tomatoes and cucumber. There was also a hot selection consisting of eggs in various forms, sausages and 'loukoumus' which is yeast fried in batter covered with honey and cinnamon (no good if you are diabetic as am I). Tea and coffee was plentiful and free, as was apple, orange and pineapple juice. Evening meals consisted of soup, salads and a selection of hot food including fish (cooked different ways), chicken, pastas, vegetables to name but a few. The staff were efficient and polite but not overly friendly. The pool was cleaned daily and offered plenty of sunbeds - there was always a few available so I didn't have to remove towels from beds that had been claimed in the early hours by other guests (from other countries). All in all, this is a very good hotel for the price you are likely to pay and as one who normally complains, I found this one so refreshing that I felt obliged to write this review.
