Heard all about Mr Silcox whilst in Pericles this year for the umpteenth time. He sounds like one of these profesional moaners who will not be content unless he finds something wrong with a holiday and can recoup some of his money with complaints to his tour operator. It's interesting that none of the other contributors seem to agree with him much. What does that tell you? In all my visits I have yet to experience anything like his problems but then I go on holiday to relax rather than try to find fault with everything. I am happy with the knowledge that I am unlikely to bump into this ignorant man on future trips to the Pericles.
Keep up the good work Nikos,Stelios & all the staff
Mr Silcox seems to have quiet on us all. Blessing in disguise
or what ?
There seem to me that they are far more positive comments than negative on this site
Nowhere is perfect but ,hey , enjoy and get on with your holidays.
Worrylingly like Arnie said "I will be back" cos he has nothing better to do with his sad life
hallo mr pethick and your lovely wife (julie))
i am glad i have met the likes of you over the last 6 years and all the other lovely people that seem to be perfectly happy with the pericles. i hope that this will be my last contribution to this site unless a certain person has nothing better to do with his life.
to everybody out there don't let one sad b*****d put you off going to a nice friendly hotel .
Hotel is closed during winter.
Earliest you can contact them is end of April/beginning May usually .

Say Hi to Nikos for me.Will be there myself 29th May onwards.
A lot of you who look at this site either know me or have read my comments previously as this year was my 12th visit to the Hotel Pericles and I hope, I have been one of its biggest supporters when unfair criticism has headed its way.
But, it has changed. Gone are the little personal touches that made it such a welcoming and friendly hotel. They have sold out to the demands of Thomas Cook , who seem to run the hotel rather than the owners and management.
It was always going to be different after the famous Nikos left but, Hey , things change.!! As a lot of you have said ,Alex turned out to be a star. Just as well as he was there holding the fort together!
Personally. I fell foul of the new regime because I made the enormous mistake of talking to fellow holidaymakers about good bars, restaurants, trips such as Sami Star, Car hire half the price of Thomas Cook etc. Isn't that what you do when you are chatting to your mates whilst on holidays?
The hotel accepted my booking in September subject to a gagging order that I didn't speak to anyone.
Obviously,they want their guests to spend money in their hotel and nowhere else.
Was asked to leave after 3 days !!!!!!
Sour grapes don't come into this because I have had too many good holidays at the Pericles to let it be so but........... Anybody out there seen the difference and would you want to stay in somewhere where you have no freedom to spend your time, and money, how and where you choose?
