“Let down by Small Planet airline”

Written on: 17/07/2013 by emilyinglis (1 review written)

I have made sure that I first calm down from my experience before writing this - I certainly do not want to fall into the trap of being one of those typical types who go off the boil and make unfair feedback or generalise, as Olympic Airways did a stirling job in many respects. So to begin, I booked my trip to Crete through secretescapes.com. Full on 5* luxury resort at a discounted price - which from the documents Olympic Airways sent me (yes, printed documents, very old school) the discount… Read Full Review

“Kosmas Apartments Roda Corfu”

Written on: 17/07/2013 by Alisonmllr (1 review written)

I have just returned for the second time staying with George and his family in the lovely Kosmas Apartments. Our holiday was just as planned, lots of sunshine, swimming, good food and friendly people. The Kosmas is family orientated and can cater for larger families with its 2 bedroomed accomodation, as well as studios and 1 bedrooms. George has Greek nights, mommas cooking and WiFi, so you don't need to leave if you don't want to go into Roda centre, which is only a 10 minute walk away from… Read Full Review

“ LACK OF COMMUNICATION RE MY COMPLAINT”

Written on: 17/07/2013

I RECENTLY BOOKED A HOLIDAY WITH OLYMPIC THROUGH SECRET ESCAPES - IT WAS NOT A LUXURY HOLIDAY AS LEAD TO BELIEVE. OLYMPIC DIDN'T ANSWER ANY OF MY QUERIES PRIOR TO DEPARTURE. THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED AND THE PLANE AND AIRLINE CHANGED - AN EMPTY PLANE WAS FLOWN IN FROM FRANCE TO TAKE US TO CRETE.... 3 HOURS AFTER THE DEPARTURE TIME. THE RETURN FLIGHT WAS AGAIN DELAYED AND THE CARRIER CHANGED ONCE AGAIN. WE BOOKED EXTRA`LEG ROOM ON THE PLANE AND WERE TOLD THAT THIS WOULD NOT BE GUARANTEED AS THE… Read Full Review

“Last minute booking - lovely surprise!”

Written on: 17/07/2013 by Bobles21 (1 review written)

Flew to Santorini and stayed at the Blue Sea Hotel in Kamari. Flew with Small Planet airlines and was concerned as had never heard of them, but flights were fine and all on time. Hotel was typically Greek - small, basic, but clean and very friendly staff and great location so suited our needs just fine as we just wanted a base - somewhere to sleep and shower - pool area very nice and rooms do have air conditioning. Perfect location for beach, promenade and local travel… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Parga retreat”

Written on: 17/07/2013

Just returned from Parga where we stayed at Maria Ellena Studios. The studios are superb and are set overlooking the sea about 20 minutes walk from Parga Town. They are exceptionally well maintained and have every amenity you would require. Two swimming pools, pool bar and fantastic views. Being outside of Parga it is peaceful and an idyllic retreat. I would certainly recommend a stay there. As the studios are set on a hillside it is preferable in my opinion to take the 4 euro tax ride… Read Full Review

“Amazing”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by Blodwen123 (1 review written)

We have just arrived back from carda beach resort in kos. Our first proper holiday together, and it was amazing. Everything went so smoothly, we were thinking by the end that something is going to have to go wrong but it never. The hotel was stunning, food was stunning and Olympic looked after us well. It was 5* all inclusive, we frowned upon doing an all inclusive but we thought to hell with it, so glad we did. It was an over 18's hotel food and drink on tap!!! The island was stunning and the… Read Full Review

“Cool Kolumbari!!!”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by kijabi (1 review written)

Our 5th visit to Alonia Apartments near Kolumbari in Crete. Definitely 'home from home' as far as our family are concerned...the hospitality and kindness of our host Makis are second to none. Fabulously clean swimming pool; lovely pool bar for drinkies during the day or sundowners or after dinner beverages (h9oney raki highly recommended). Barbecue night is a must on a Thursday with Greek dancing afterwards...very lively and hilarious! Makis also does how own thing and invites you to join him… Read Full Review

“A Turkish Delight!”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by chriskie (1 review written)

We have just spent a wonderful week at the Ece Saray hotel in Fethiye. The hotel was very elegant and exceeded our expectations. The food at every meal was fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful.Dinner was served on the terrace by the water and was magical. One waiter gave me Turkish lessons each morning at breakfast. The swimming pool was beautiful and so quiet!! The situation of the hotel was superb, quiet away from the traffic and yet only a five minute walk into town… Read Full Review

“Pitas Studios, Skala, Kefalonia”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by SteveAndMargaret (1 review written)

We booked a 2* Allocated on Arrival SC Deal to Skala, Kefalonia. Olympic Holidays do not normally use the Pita Studio accommodation that we were allocated. Some other studios had Serbian guests allocated by the Serbian-based Aqua Travel. We found our studio to be clean and spacious. All studios have nice views, some are really special. They are in a quiet area up the hill towards Old Skala but only around 400m from the shops. There is no pool but guests can use a nearby hotel at a cost of… Read Full Review

“Brilliant People @ Mythos apartments”

Written on: 16/07/2013

We have just returned from a week at the Mythanos apartments in Katelios Kefalonia. Whilst the accommodation is as you would expect for 3 star self catering in Greece, the holiday was made by George and Denise who ran the place from 9am until the early hours. They were absolutely fantastic, always happy, nothing was too much trouble. They made our holiday. The Greek night was so good, we felt we were at a proper Greek party with Denise leading the dancing and involving everyone. The food was… Read Full Review

“Flight to Skiathos”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by Gemmald (1 review written)

Booked flight to Skiathos from Birmingham- what a disaster. Flight was changed to Manchester the day before we were due to fly. Luckily, I managed to cancel the flights due to the change(still waiting for my refund)& booked flights with Thomas Cook. Was due to fly out with Small Planet Airlines who Olympic use a lot. Please read reviews on this airline - appalling. Take note Olympic, your reputation is being dragged through the mud. Also, your customer service - in my case - was terrible. … Read Full Review

Spent two weeks in this wonderful hotel. Bad start as transfer place missed ferry and were ferried by coach 55km to overnight hotel and then 06:30 to return to Rhodes to catch ferry to Symi. Arrival in town was spectacular with the town hanging to the mountainsides overlooking the port. The hotel was seconds from the ferry. Hotel very clean and rooms cleaned daily, staff were excellent and friendly. The main bays were by water taxi but the seas were very clear. 24e per day by ferry to bay… Read Full Review

“Excellent Manousis Studios, Zante - but noise issues”

Written on: 16/07/2013

We've been on holiday with Olympic most years for the last 15 (and never really look any further) because we've learned from experience that the accommodation and resorts are as described on the website and that the reps are helpful and reliable. The prices are also competitive for the self-catering holidays we enjoy. This year we went to the Manousis Studios in Tsilivi, Zante, and enjoyed 2 weeks of baking sun in early July (I wouldn't want it any hotter than it was!). We wanted a quiet… Read Full Review
