My inlaws stayed at Aristomenis while we were in Eleni studios and they asked me to post their views.
While my holiday was fantastic theyres was a nightmare, due to the rude unaproachable people running this complex. My inlaws are in theyre 60's and in poor health and looked forward to a peaceful stress free holiday in theyre apartment with a balcony and sea views as they booked back in October 2004.
On arrival they were shown to theyre apartmet below ground level with views of an eight foot wall retaining the road above them and a large generator cupboard to the side. The sea was to the back of theyre apartment were there were no windows. They referred to the apartment as the DUNGEON.
My 15 year old daughter was staying with them and the apartment was booked as a 3 sleeper, this was a joke as even with the three beds pushed together you could not open the patio doors and had to climb over the beds to get in and out.
After complaining to the rep who was less than helpful and seemed only interested in the owners point of view my inlaws were blanked by the staff and made to feel very uncomfortable for theyre entire stay. As a result of this they spent most of theyre holiday at Eleni Studios with us.
The Aristomenis policy is one toilet roll per week per three people and the bins are emptyed and towels changed on Thursdays, this is not negotiable and the rep cant help. Take into account that all toilt paper must go in the bin not down the toilet and you can see things getting rather unpleasant.
The final insult was on departure day, our flight home was at midnight and they had to vacate theyre apartment at 10am. Our cases were in the departure lounge at Eleni in secure storage while my inlaws were told by the rep to leave theyre cases next to the stairs outside the DUNGEON at Aristomenis. My inlaws decided they would be happier comming to us and getting on the coach with us and made arrangements for me to pick them up in the morning. When i arrived they were stood by the side of the road looking glum, they had put theyre cases where the rep had told them to, only for the owner to tell them to take theyre cases and get out.
The perfect end to a relaxing stress free holiday - avoid Aristomenis like the plague.
