i also went to the maria anna hotel and was seriously sexualy assaulted by the manager and spent a grueling 14 hours with the police in argostoli which had to be the most harrowing experience i have ever had especialy as the police men were not english spoken and had to have translation by another greek policeman whom spoke such little police it became very hard to explain what had happened although eventualy i got my point across and had no support from the rep sue whom in fact told me to not go to the police as she is good friends with the manager and owner of this hotel. the matter is currently being investigated by olympic holidays and would be greatful if anyone has experienced anything of this nature as a woman to contact olympic holidays whom are fully aware of the ongoing problems. my advice to anyone is dont go there if you dont want to be abused then reabused by an ancient police system that clearly needs to be updated in tune with the times. single women please beware as it is and can be a dangerous place. dont think if you have children your safe because i am a single parent. this man came into my room with the key without my permission and on coming up the stairs one night to go to my room was dragged into a room by the manager and seriously assaulted and he also tried to **** me.
I spent a week in the Galaxy after being moved from another hotel.
Anna, George and young George, you were fantastic. I confess that I strolled in at 6am after an excelent night at the greek night club just a couple of minutes away from the hotel.Live greek singers, belly dancers, traditional greek dancing all night and plenty of flowers being thrown around left right and centre. Its free to get in but the drink is expensive but worth it for the experience. You may find your the only English in there as I was with my daughter. Its where the locals go after they have finished work. Its a must for anyone who apreciates good live music and traditional greek ways. George waited up as he does to ensure all is well for his guests and thier safe return.
The hotel cleaners deserve a mention too as they had to fight thier way through the mess on entering our room from the children and Id walk back in to a sparkling clean room. As for Daisy the dog, does anyone know what Daisy would regularly chase and bark at by the wall behind the bar? Daisy is a good guard dog and an asset to George although you must remember to speak to her in greek as she clearly doesnt have the same multi lingual skills as her dad. The rooms were spacious and clean and the general place was very clean. The breakfast was always fresh and you could eat as much as you liked.
This part is now directed at the country in general.......
It was very expensive as was all of the island when it came to eating or having a drink and clearly England is alot cheaper when eating out or drinking. The beer was the same prices be it a restuarant or hotel. It was not a cost effective holiday and in fact was probably the most expensive Id been on yet and had nothing to show for it. It does recommend that you hire a car but anyone in thier right mind wouldnt take the risk. If you go into Argostoli check out chicken or pork Gyros's at only 1.50 euro. Its like a kebab with meat, salad and chips with a tasty sauce and will fill you up. Make sure you all take plenty of mossie creams and potions as the place is riddled with the critters. Also for smokers, when you go the airport to get home, once you get through the gates and await your departure, it is a no smoking area.
This hotel is now booked through Olympic holidays for those who need to know.
Customer sevices... You state "please will all interested parties refrain from making allegations about people who cannot defend themselves as they are in Greece". Do you think those involved gave the victims the same curtesy? NO. Did those involved (perpetrators) have the same curtesy when they took responsible english guests looking after the 2 children and trapsed them down the police station for no reason leaving the 2 young children of the victim alone to fend for themselves in the hotel with the perpetrators family and friends? Did they have the same curtesy when they also used those children to intimidate the victims by letting the mother know whom had them? Did the holiday company whom had a duty of care to those children go and check on the children at any stage during the mothers 14 hour ordeal in the police station? No. For those whom need more information if they have been through similar no matter what hotel or holiday company, please contact the home office, greek embassy here in England, trading standards, and the british embassy in Athens. It is not acceptable for any victim of crime to be treated the way they were no matter what thier experience.
Did those in Greece allow the victims to defend themselves when the perpetrators were allowed to sit in the room during thier statements or phone calls with the british embassy and continuously frighten the life out of the mother by letting her know they had her children frightening the life out of her as she feared for her children?
Maybe you could also answer why the holiday company knowing the youngest child had a dissability did not check on the well being either of that child? Yes it will now be left in the capable hands of the other governing bodies named above.
yannis bita? maybe you could highlight your bosnian name for the english peoples reference and not the greek name of which you aquired yet does not stand legaly when under the greek law, not under the english law either. is it compulsory for an albanion man to change his name to a greek name when he starts work on a greek island? maybe you got christened or something to enable the new name. didnt you like your birth name yannis? im sure we all have reasons for everything eh!
interesting that you have used the name of the greek owner of the maria anna hotel as gregory tsimpourlas. i do not have a problem at all with you including gregory as he is already included for his part already.
please could you also state which "english" holiday companies you worked for before olympic as we could then do some back ground research into them on you as well. please ensure you add your birth name and not the one you have stated here and stop telling people you are greek when you are in fact a bosnian which was pointed out at every chance by the greek police and the name you use here is not your real name. what we could then do is check out your good character as it were, which we both know your not such a good person.maybe the english police with the addition of both your names could check you out too.
also, i am sure in due course you will also find that i had in fact tried for several days to contact the olympic rep namely sue who in fact didnt comply to her duties when she was given several messages left for her in more than one place.had she of done her job that she was paid to do then you wouldnt of got a chance to get as far as you did with me but on saying that she went straight to you before she even told her bosses and told you what we had said despite our requests to talk to her boss and not you and deal with it the right way.she breached our confidence too. im sure your aware however that i did inform the british embassy in athens though before i got the details of the police. maybe if you and sue hadnt of made it so protract and difficult for me to get the information i needed then it would of been alot sooner.
as for the numbers on the board, maybe you would care to update them if you havent already done so as they were out of date apart from believe it or not, the fire brigade.
its wierd because you are saying that several guests witnessed all these things. those guests are in fact in contact with legal reps and yet thier accounts dont even remotely tally up with your made up events.
not that i should have to defend myself on here but then now you have made my name public i will defend myself so be prepared as i am not drunk and i have the support of my boyfriend, family and friends amongst others and not as vunerable as the times you abused me and sinead. after reading your comment i have to say your back is very much up against a wall yannis and a rapist will always say that the woman was begging for sex or asking for it or getting paid for or sleeps around, sexualy promiscuous just to make himself look better and try and throw the blame on the woman so when you make out she is so easy for sex then she must be a tart and you just a poor innocent by stander. im just pointing out a fact on what rapists generaly say. who are you trying to kid, yourself or everyone else because it isnt me? the reason you have made such pathetic lies up about me is because i am a serious threat to you hence your comments. what was you hoping for? that i would just take it and see it as an experience? i have to admit you put the fear of god into me along with gregory and almost did take it but then why should i? well it was a terrible experience and if you bringing my name publicly helps other women then i am prepared to leave it on this site.
also, i stood on the balcony shouting out i was english and wanted sex with my children there eh? and i also got paid for sex? what a pity you dont know me eh! please ask this imaginary person, man or woman to come forward for questioning and maybe state the price i was imaginarily paid just for references sake. i assume you still have the names and addresses of the guest that gave you hear say information? if you do could you please supply it to a solicitor. as your making it up could you also ensure it goes into 50 figure numbers and even then it would be too cheap.
just out of interest, wasnt it also you that accused another female guest of coming back with a man and he made sexual advances to her and there was a bit of a commotion outside in the main entrance to the hotel? when the man and woman you both accused and spread rumours found out and tackled you about your lies, didnt you then accuse another woman for the sake of it?and all because what you had said was a pack of lies on your part and may i add the woman was a single parent on holiday on her own. she even confronted you and told you that silly men like you spread viscious rumours and she told you off. i hope you have the witness details of that situation too? or did you think if you could spread lies about her too then you would be able to step in at a later date to try and **** her too? seems like you are forming a patern in your behaviour yannis. youve made some serious allegations and slandered me in a big way yannis and to lie in a court of law is an offence.
i was drunk all the time as well eh? with a 10 year old daughter with me, with a dissability do you think that would be likely? on 2 occasions i drank(the 1st not alot) and on both you assaulted me the 2nd time being the most terrible. but to have a drink is not a crime but to **** or seriously sexualy assault women is a crime and women should not have to live in fear that when they go on holiday a drink is an invitation to be abused because you see them as vunerable and easy prey for your sick needs. so lets not try and diverse to wether i had a drink or not and stick to the issue and facts yannis. please check what you have said before writing it down. i waited a week eh? well if i arrived on the thursday then went to the police on the wednesday doesnt that make 6 days? it took alot for me to go to the police especially after you, gregory, gregory's friend and jenny threatened us not to go to the police. you wasnt exactly quiet about it when you all said those things given that or you just didnt realise there was 2 families sat right outside listening, did you get their statements? i felt very threatened at the time especialy when you walked off shouting like a mad man when we said we were still going to the police.
wasnt it you that also told me after you shouted at me whilst i was on the phone at the supermarket to my boyfriend in england and you demanded agressively that you wanted to see me and when i refused you walked along side me up the hill then got verbally agressive and demanded i talked to you in the restuarant and grabbed my arm and led me there and then told me that single parents are disgusting and men would not want them as anything but for sex because they had children from another man and men only want thier own children and that women in thier 30's you always use a condomn with them because they carry std's ? its strange that yannis because when you tried to **** me you couldnt find the condom could you without having to let me go. at least now i can establish why you didnt go as far as raping me and how i got out.would you also like me to highlight the rest of what you done to me that night and the other occasion? the sad part about it is, yes it was the 2nd time id had a drink on that holiday and i should of been safe to walk up the stairs to my room regardless of if i was drunk, paraletic or sober. you as the manager were in a position of trust. i only wish i had been so drunk that i didnt remember any of it at all because it has crippled me inside and affected my life in a very bad way.it has even affected my kids and my boyfriend whom has been taking the presure when i go into very low moods and now my sex life has been seriously affected too.it wasnt just what you had done but also how you and gregory exposed my children by taking away the english families that were specifically looking after my children leaving me histerical when gregory used them against me in the police station by telling me they were with his friends.those friends were the other perpetrators in sineads case. it was also like a knife in me when you walked passed the man andrew one of the english guests and patted him on the back much to his disgust in front of everyone and said it was a good day and laughed in my face as i broke down in tears at the thought of any harm coming to my children when i couldnt get to them and protect them from you and your friends. but you knew that which is why you and gregory used the one thing against me that would make me crumble and for a short while you succeeded but you should of thought of the long term yannis. for any mother that is a living hell in itself. so its not just what you done, its the whole situation. maybe you can also think of the hours i now spend on the phone at night talking to the samaritans. i have a very strong belief yannis and that is "god pays debts without money" and i am sure he will judge you for the person you truly are.
i will now leave my case in the capable hands of the legal representatives here in england and also in greece.
think of the teenage english boys and what you said to them! think also of the teenage boy who droped his pizza and what you done to him. do you remember that? the parents do. i doubt they are your witnesses either. how many women do you think are now taking action against you and the hotel yannis? more than 2. so that leaves you how many witnesses? didnt you have to be warned about your over friendlyness to a little boy that you started petting a little bit too much? i am sure that once the full details of your past working history and the fact all holiday companies will have to disclose eventualy the names and details of those guests staying where you worked, will bring out alot more than you bargained for.
now please excuse me whilst i get back to my life and try and piece together what you have taken away. the facts will speak for themselves all in due course yannis. i may not sit on this site all the time but i can bet your life you will do now because from what i can see not many people have said a good word about your character have they and that dates back to last year? maybe your problem was you knew you couldnt have me willingly so you took what wasnt yours to have when i had a drink because you knew that was the only way you would ever get near me. i rest my case.
ps. as you didnt know my name i wonder whom supplied it to you or did you take advantage of the records on guests list at the hotel? and you consider yourself to be trust worthy? i doubt it. you have acted neither profesional nor conducted yourself in any reasonable manor. and if your going to add my name at least spell it right. it is teresa not teressa.
ps. Im not even going to waste my time on you now yannis. I will let the relevant people deal with this matter the right way.
what is the likelyhood of 2 people coming onto the net taking into account that I posted mine very late at night on here and both put nice things on the same date and had to come on and added it in such a short space of time after mine given how late it was? Its wierd because if everyone checks all this site for this hotel you will see that it has taken a year for a small handful of people to come forward and how many said nice things? and yet all of a sudden we have an influx to say how good it was. Those who did go on holiday after the events that took place, maybe you ought to be thanking us for highlighting the issues because if we hadnt I dare say your holiday wouldnt of been so good because clearly your saying that there have been major improvements. Do you really think they are going to behave in the same manor after all thats been exposed? I think not but then it doesnt take alot to work that out.
I dare say they will be nice to everyone now and act in a better manor which they should and watch what they say and do and moleycoddle the guests in a vain bid to try and make themselves look good.
Do NOT judge a book by its cover because its not always what it seems. As for lana, yes she is a fantastic person and that has NEVER been an issue has it? so why even mention her as if she is an issue? Tut tut. As for the views! is that from the maria anna? as from what everyone else could see from the hotel was just building work all around and plently of noise from it too or didnt that get seen by those who visited after? If you walk near to the beaches, yes you have fantastic views.
