Peter’s Kool Pool Appartments are basic but that’s hardly unusual on a holiday package in Greece and the most important factor is that they are clean.

We were a bit disappointed with the Caravel hotel on arrival. We had a long day so were tired & a bit tetchy by the time we hit Zante. Our room was in the Zeus building & on the ground floor overlooking the car park. The lock was broken on the door leading out to the balcony. The room was big & spacious with plenty of cupboard space. there was a fridge which came in handy to keep your drinks cool. There was a safety deposit box in the wardrobe which you pay for at reception.

The Paspalis in Scala (Skala locally) was a great hotel. The rooms, although basic, were cleaned every day & fresh towels & bed linen changed three times in the two weeks we were there. Nikos the owner & all his staff were very helpful & friendly, particularly the restaurant staff who worked very long hours yet nothing was too much trouble for them.

Beware if you book a package holiday to the Sea Horse hotel in lesbos with Thomas Cook Online asthey will tell you that a sea view is no problem and it doesn’t mention a surcharge but if you are unlucky you will get the “castle” view. We could not blame the hotel staff as they are only given the accommodation codes a couple of weeks before you get there. Other than that, the Sea Horse is a great little hotel.
