Just returned from the Pericles on Sunday after two fantastic weeks. My wife wasn't looking forward to our holiday, having read Russell's comments, but we were amazed how different it was to his comments. Sounds as though he is the usual tourist from hell ~ the one you don't want to meet, who complains about everything, including the weather!! Why not try Blackpool next time, Russell. For anyone going to the Pericles, I can assure them that the hotel is excellently situated, far enough away from the town to be quiet, yet near enough to walk in, even with kids. The staff are friendly, even when you are not buying drinks from the bar, and they cannot do enough for you, always with a smile. The rooms are basic, as are most hotels rooms in Greece, but they are spotless and the public areas are kept very clean. The food is excellent, mostly typical Greek food, so if you are looking forward to egg and chips you may be disappointed. The pool area is clean, as is the water, and the garden areas are well kept. All in all I couldn't fault the hotel. Sarah, the TC rep, was lovely, knowledgeable, and kept the Karaoke going on Friday nights. Although we didn't book any trips through her, she was always helpful, and pointed us in the right directions with any queries. The hotel obviously caters for all tastes. I am in my 50s and loved it, but the young couple in the next room to us, Paul and Claire, were just as taken with the hotel as we were. Russell's latest comment reveals that it is 3 years since he was there, but his original comments were only put on this site recently. Why?
