just got back from the Pericles hotel"or" should that be Pericles Rooms,It's not a proper "HoteL" Myself and my family went there it was bad.It was more like "Faulty Pericles Woldalf salad hotel"The pool area is a complete disgrace very very dangerous especially for kids.There is a sharp tile edge that surrounds each pool the plastic filter grids are ill fitting and stickup in places ready for you to trip onto either the slippery pool sharp edge or the horrendous pebbledash finished floor that is nearly impossible to walk on.The grout in the tiles is nearly all gone,so when you slip in either pool you go along a tile edge that is dangerous. One person ripped there toe open then fell on the pebble dash with there knee and put a very bad dent in it,The water does'nt seem that clean.The kids play ground is just two swings and a slide.If you were to use the slide it would mean a visit to hospital.There is no shade provided over the area .You can fry your egg ang bacon on the slide.That brings me to breakfast ready;Bread cheese mank ham jam everything else you have to pay for.IE Cornflakes.But I thought i had payed for Bed & Breackfast it's a con. My kids can't eat bread and ham for breakfast. We had cockroaches in our room that was in the basement of the building the view from our terris was a bush and an old factory, appalling .There's a 30m walk to the dangerous pool area over stones and dust.There you can buy refreshments at ripoff prices.The Table and chairs are rubbish plastic falling to peices.I picked up a table and all four legs just fell off,The sun beds are like being in traction Rubbish.The bar area in the Evening is as greek as blackpool.English everything, so saves money and you will find the same abions at you local pub.I could go on forever. When We were there we got the feeling that all they wanted was the money in your pocket and they had two weeks to make sure they cleaned you rightout or they had failed and missed out on some Dollar.You felt as if you were getting no value for your hard earned cash. It was awfull. I sussed Nickos out straight away and he did not like that.Nickos the money ripper can give you banter but he done't like it uphim I,m sure he could tell how much money you had just by smelling .Take my advise don't stay there.The area setting is beautiful in sami that's all its got going for it.The rooms are awfull no safe,no telly,no mini fridge,no pictures on the wall,no fan,The furniture is rubbish.The air con is rubbish and its only on from 5 til midnight we awoke at 3am boiling if we opened a window we got crickets jumping in our room. Enough said there's more but i cant't be botherd. If you won't Greece Don't got to the pericles.you've been warned!
I have been to Santorini 4 times,Rhodes 2,Kos 1,Ios 2,Mykenos 1,Crete 1 and Athens 3 times.I have stayed in all sorts of accommidation from youth Hostels UP.I first went to Greece in 1983 b ackpacking. I am an expereance tourist When I say The Periceles Hotel is no good as in My last post below. So Sue, I think you like a drink or you didn't go to the pool area.Yes it is A beautiful Island shame about the crumy Pericles. I could go on.Cockroaches in our room how can that be Excellent Cleanliness?;Yes you get them in the med' But you Accomidation should be cleaned so they don't come into your room.Excellent quietness! You must be joking,It's RIGHT NEXT TO A FARM.Dogs,Cows,Cockerals,ckickens etc Unless you are drunk you can't help but here it.Excellent Location YES! I must stop, Yasso
The waldorf salad is harrendous,its crumy joint "as john cleese'es American guest once said!! On your head be it if you stay here!Make sure you take these precortions as well as others you will find on the way thru your visit,earplugs,a fan,insect repelant,anti cockroch spray,a map to find the swimming pools,walking boots,breackfast,a smile and loads and loads of money because you'll need it if you would like to stay around this building,Yasso,etc
i forgot plasters and bandages for when you take a fall!!
hello again,yes i can agree with some of Barbara Lord's comment's Maybe we were expecting a Greek hotel. That is what the tour operater sold us but again everyone has differant expectations as to what they should expect for there money.We payed a lot of money to stay here.That was partly as to why we were expecting a tidy hotel.Barbara You must admit it is taty! We have to small children and were told there was a childrens playground.Maybe you don't have any kid's? because the pool area was scarinly dangerous for them especialy.Our arms were twisted a little to buy from the hotel because there is no fridge in the room so having two small children we had to buy them drinks did'nt we.The hotel don't won't you goin up the supermarket and stockin up your fridge with refreshments.Also we enjoy a pool view from our balcony.It helps you feel that you are on holiday,no hard feelings.regards
tut tut didum's sue,calm down you'll give yourself a nervous breakdown,don't take people's comments to hart. We all know you love the pericles.If you look at the photo of Nick Cage at the reception he spelt it Periclis hotel, so it's obvious he's nerver been there. He probebly got one of his lackies to drop it of there. Poo. You obviously like a good stiff drink
Gazman Jones .Tut tut.This is a message board so please no bad langudge please ladys read this to.You shuold have spoken to me i cauld have realy put you of your holiday.HA HA.Have you ever hrd of banter.I am soory i cant splell all that good.But i am loaded £ and don't realy care.I onces stayed at a hotel and i thought it was a bit dangerous.But i did nothing about it.I thought oh well dos'nt realy affect me.But the next day or two i can't remember exactly a little girl got hurt.So that is probably as to why i look for dangers all the time.Its hard to relax.I just want the holiday company to improve it for others whom go to this perticular hotel.So it is safer.And yes i did put it back down, Don't blame children for the plastic poping up .It kept happening to anybody.One man cut his foot open.We enjoyed the area immensely.We love greece and have been to loads of greek islands and the mainland.Maybe if your room was in the basement you wauld have been alittle put out.My daughter has a medical problem. So we usaly like a belcony so we can invite frends around for a social on the belcony. while the children are asleep.That plan didn't work out unless you like looking at a hedge.I can assure you i am not the only one whom found this place not to good.Regards and Good holidays Maybe see you around Greece ATB
Gazman. Forgot to say! you must have me mixed up with someone else.My wife looks like manwell.
Richard, you must make sure you go to Mertos beach its lovely .That's if you haven't been already, Regards atb
yes there is a cash machine in Sami,near the port.There are two if i remember correctly
walk is about ten minutes on the main road,but about 20mins the back road.The back road is a better walk.The back road runs along behind the hotel
Hallo to all my frends. Hi it seems i,ve been missed by a few of you.A special hallo to Steve Davies ha ha , I,m happy you like my postes.But it would seem i have been sused out a little by an inteligent gentlman Andy Pethick. Andy did you once play prof football for Pompey? R/back?.For my next holiday i may go to Russia, Outer Mongolia or the Siberian Salt Mines. I not realy sure just yet.A.T.B PS, There are some iteligent people around if you look. I have been realy anjoying the reactions to my postes.What fantastic fun you all are. I bet iv,e helped you all to have an even more anjoyable holiday.There,s no charge .All my moanings are free of charge.Unles i meat you in the Pericles.Then i,m going to rip you of all that i can and make sure i clean you right out and you go home SKINT!!!!! HA HA
Come on, it,s a crummy joint!You lot must have low expectations of what to expect for your hard earned .If you enjoy a youth hostel more we,ll i suppose that is what it is realy but for older mugs.Come on the Pericles, INVEST some of your punters money in the hotel I,ll give you some examples.A few picture,s in the rooms WoW.Filters on the air con outlets.So we don't have to breath other peoples shed skin cell's(dust). More comfortable mattress.One side of my body would be numb in the morning's.I would panic upon waking thinking i'd lost a limb the previous night. (but if you go to bed pis*** that realy don,t matter:)Re-surface the ground around the pool area. So its ok to walk on.For us older folk its realy painfull to walk on.And when you take a fall the pea like shingle finish realy diggs in your knee,s.A sunshade over the childrens swings and slide.and so on.There you go.That should keep you going for a few years.Many thanks
