We were 2 adults and 2 kids (13 and 10) and comfortably fitted into one standard bedroom. Clothes storage was just the one wardrobe....not really enough. Room was large enough that we could live out of our cases without getting in each others way. We were ground floor (almost sunk below ground level) with a large patio. No view.....but by...

Have visited here many times over the years. The hotel remains clean and tidy but the pool area and bar have gone downhill this year. By the end of our stay the pool was cloudy and our feet filthy from walking on the patio that doesn't seem to get cleaned from one day to the next. The plants round the...

My previous experiences of Greece are of family-run small hotels in Skiathos, Halkidiki and in 2010 the Makis Hotel in Skala. In each case you knew exactly what you were going to get - clean rooms with basic decor, a very basic breakfast and lovely people running the hotel. Having read the reviews of the Big Village I was expecting...

Enjoyed our recent visit very much. But it has gone downhill slightly since the previous management moved on since last summer. Cleanliness is definitely an issue especially the outside pool area toilets. But the same can be said as in previous reviews, Mikey at the pool bar is a star! Nothing is too much trouble and he really does his...

I stayed in this hotel for a week and I have to say that it was really lovely the only problems I had was clean towels, the mould around the shower basin, the breakfast was the same thing each and that the air conditioning wasn't included in the price. The man behind the pool bar was a true legend gonna...

Just back from 2 weeks at the big village hotel, would have to say not as spotless as we were led to believe... This is the only time we didn't leave a tip for the cleaners as frankly they didn't earn one, the main topic of conversation around the pool was the lack of clean towels and bedding! Sat arrivals...

Just returned from a lovely break at BV. As has been mentioned in many reviews, the location of BV is excellent and is probably one of the best in town. The hotel is a few steps away from the Roman Villa with its mosaics, although this may sound grander than it actually is. The pool area is very spacious and...
