For the first time I checked the reviews which were hit and miss. My girlfriend and I arrived here at the start of September which was pretty quiet and still hot for this time of year.

Recently home from a week at the Despo Hotel. Our expectations were not overly high as we just wanted a cheap bit of winter sun, and I can honestly say that everything was much better than expected. The staff are a definite high point, especially the lovely Maria, Nikos and Mihaelos (hopefully all names spelled correctly?). The atmosphere was fantastic,...

Check out is morning, but you can still use all hotel facilities and they have a baggage room where you can leave your bags, and shower facilities downstairs you can use.

We didn't use a taxi to the airport, but it isn't far, maybe 10-15 mins, so won't cost the earth.
