We have just got back from a 7 night stay at Chrousso. Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and the weather was beautiful for the entire week. We arrived at the hotel at around 3pm on a Saturday afternoon, receptionist was a bit abrupt but directed us to our room which was quite easy to find, she also advised us that we had missed lunch but told us there was a snack bar. We went to find our room and had a lie down after the long day travelling and then went to find the snack bar. We went to where we had been shown and couldn't find it, we went to ask in reception and the lady took us to 2 food cabinets, one cold and one tepid warm, and pointed, "self service". We later found out that the snack bar was in fact breakfast or lunch leftovers which was quite ironic considering that the one thing in the Thomas Cook guide we were given at the welcome meeting was always avoid food which has been kept warm for long periods of time. What a joke! 2 nights out of the 7 the food was fantastic this was Sunday BBQ night and Wednesday gala night. Unfortunately they did all the good food on these 2 nights and the rest of the week was rubbish. Lots of veal and unnamed fish, not a lot of variety and lots of unidentified ingredients, one night which stands out was serving rabbit, with skulls and all still in the pot. Were all for trying Greek tradition but would expect a so called 4 star to be of much higher quality and quite frankly throughout the whole week nothing looked very appetising, and it was more a case of what can we make do with tonight. The staff in the restaurant were very efficient apart from one really rude woman who looked miserable all the time. The hotel was clean, the maid service was excellent, there were lots of wasps bees and flies and also swallows but hey in the middle of the forest what can you expect. We walked to the beach once and didn't bother again, very local and got charged 6 euros for a small bottle of lager which we were convinced was only because we weren't local. Hotel was very derelict so you were basically stuck as the minibus times were very strict. Had a nice holiday except the awful food but would not return to Chrousso nor recommend to others
