“WARNING! WARNING! DO NOT ENTER THE FINAS HOTEL IN PEFKOS”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by beksy (1 review written)

HAVING TAKEN TWO GRANDDAUGHTERS TO RHODES FOR A 2 WEEK HOLIDAY WE ENTERED THE PITS OF HELL. ARRIVING AFTER A NIGHT FLIGHT WE WERE DROPPED OFF WITH OUR LUGGAGE AND HAD TO PULL IT A THIRD OF A WAY UP A MOUNTAIN TO GET TO RECEPTION. HERE WE WERE MET BY A VERY FRIENDLY YOUNG MAN WHO WAS OBVIOSLY INSTRUCTED TO MUG THE NEW ARRIVALS FOR AIR CONDITIONING (50 EUROS PER WEEK) AND SECURITY BOXES (15 EUROS PER WEEK). WE WERE THEN LED, ALONG WITH OUR LUGGAGE, ON ANOTHER HIKE A FURTHER TWO THIRDS WAY UP THE MOUNTAIN AND THEN A STEEP FLIGHT OF STAIRS TO OUR 1 BEDROOM APARTMENT. THE PLACE WAS FILTHY AND THE SHEETS AND TOWELS WERE STAINED. WE HAD AN ANT INFESTATION AND A SERIOUS LACK OF INTEREST FROM RECEPTION EVERY TIME WE MENTIONED IT. NOW WE EXPECTED A BASIC ROOM AND CATERING FACILITIES BUT THIS WAS UNINHABITABLE AND FILTHY BEYOND BELIEF. THE FOOD WE WERE CHARGED ALMOST 53 EUROS FOR, ON OUR FIRST EVENING, WAS SO BAD AND UNEATABLE EVEN THOUGH WE HAD RETURNED IT TO THE KITCHEN. A NICE YOUNG LAD WHO WAS ON HIS OWN AND STRUGGLING TO COPE WITH THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE FOOD CAME TO US AND SAID THE CHEF SENT HIS APOLOGIES, BUT WE WERE STILL EXPECTED TO PAY IN FULL. DURING OUR FORTNIGHT THE POOL AREA WAS NOT CLEANED ONCE AND THE OPEN BAR AND FOOD AREA WAS SOAKED WITH A HOSE EACH MORNING WHICH DID NOTHING OTHER THAN CREATE HUGE PUDDLES WHICH YOU HAD TO NEGOTIATE EVERY MORNING WHEN LEAVING FOR BREAKFAST, ANYWHERE BUT HERE. WE HAD TO BUY CLEANING MATERIALS AND BOTTLES OF BLEACH TO CLEAN THE PLACE AND THE TOILET WHICH WAS DISGUSTING. I WOULD IMAGINE THE CLEANING STAFF WHO HAD ONE CLOTH TO CLEAN EVERYTHING, AND A DIRTY OLD MOP WHICH WAS SLUNG OVER THE FLOOR OCCASIONALY, HAD NEVER BEEN TAUGHT HOW TO CLEAN AN APARTMENT, AND LIKE THE OWNER, CERTAINLY TOOK NO PRIDE IN THEIR WORK, OR THE ESTABLISHMENT. WE WERE BY FAR NOT THE ONLY COMPLAINEES AND HEARD LOTS OF HORROR STORIES ABOUT THE PLACE. THIS IS THE FIRST HOLIDAY IN OVER FORTY YEARS THAT I WAS HAPPY TO GET HOME FROM. NO THANKS TO THE FINAS WE SURVIVED TO TELL THE TALE. THE BEST PART OF THIS PLACE WAS LEAVING IT.
