Pelagos Bay Hotel - (Accommodation in Skala)

Jon C          7/10

First the positives;

lovely little family run apartments with superb sea views
spacious rooms, cleaned up to 6 times per week, great power shower, brilliant for getting rid of that sand!
Fantastic staff, with Billy and Yannis making sure that everyone has a good holiday
Short walk (Approx. 20 Minutes down a slight hill) into Skala
Superb home-cooked food (especially the moussaka)

Right, the negatives;

The First Choice breakfast is very basic, a choice of toast, toast or toast, the hotel provide complimentary cornflakes, surely first choice can pay the hotel more and get some muesli, Greek yogurt and fruit. Even some boiled eggs!.

My biggest complaint is the noise, various comments have been raised about this on several review websites, for us we can only comment on what we experienced, we stayed in block 20/21/22 and  were opposite the pool area and even with the shutters, window and air-con on  we could still hear the music or signing etc from the pool area, which on some nights went on until 4am, the worst being on first night when after being up since 0200 the night before was a bit unwelcome to say the least, twice we had to go down and request that the music be turned down. On Speaking to Billy the next morning he did say that it is a lively bar with the music and signing going on until 5am. I explained that we shouldn't have to shut the shutters and windows and turn on the air-con in order to drown out the noise to which Billy didn't give a plausible reply. Out of the 7 nights we were there, we returned back to the hotel most nights past 0100 to find that there were on occasions 4 or less people in the pool area with the music banging out and having people to shout to one another in order to hold down a conservation.

I'd say to anyone wanting a quiet nights sleep to look elsewhere, a 'Buyer Beware' if you like, unless you want to have the air-con on and windows shut which is a real shame because the hotel doesn't need to have a night-club feel to it.

That said the Weather, choice of restaurants and beach make up for the lack of quality sleep. However if we go to Skala again it wont be to the Pelagos Bay unless the Hotel look to address this problem.
