“Thank you Olympic holidays.”

Written on: 17/07/2013

We have just returned from the Amalia apartments in Skiathos where we have stayed on so many occasions it feels like home. we travelled as a group of 6 friends staying in 3 studios of our choice. Although budget airlines are used we had a comfortable journey without delays. The apartments are located in a beautiful forest setting with immaculate gardens tended by Roberto & a beautiful pool. The rooms are typically greek but everything you need is provided. Although the location is peaceful &… Read Full Review

“Superduper holiday, relaxed and beautiful place, loved it”

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

Just returned from a 1 week stay at buena vista apartments in kefalonia, we had a lovely view of the sea and mountains from our room, there is no air conditioning, but thats not an issue as you can rent a fan from maria's supermarket 1 minute walk away, also that part of kefalonia has a lovely breeze, very welcoming in the hot july sunshine. Everything is pretty much on your doorstep, supermarkets, restaurants, swimming pools. There is no swimming pool at these apartments but you can use any… Read Full Review

“Anavadia Hotel, Kolymbia June/July 2013 (Acc Code: 14124)”

Written on: 17/07/2013

Location: Fantastic backdrop with mountains behind and to one side, this meant there was a stiff breeze, welcome as the temp at the end of June/beginning July was 35C in the shade. Hotel was about 600/700m from the nearest pebbly beach, better beach near harbour approx 30 mins walk from hotel with some good restaurants on the coastline. Wifi available at the Oasis bar at the bottom of Eucalyptus Street free of charge. Olympic Rep: Neil was extremely knowledgeable on the island having lived and… Read Full Review

“Great hotel. Budget airline not good”

Written on: 17/07/2013 by Bobster65 (1 review written)

Lovely 5* resort but the. Duvet flight let down the whole experience. Paid for pre booked seats, only to find that they had been given to someone else! Will now have to go the trouble of getting a refund. Information on flight non existent, no duty free or hot drinks and seats very cramped and in poor condition. Booked and confirmed a VIP Deluxe Room, but was told by hotel manager it was an upgraded Garden View room. Therefore we were not invited to the barbecue that the other Secret Escape… Read Full Review

“Holiday from Hell”

Written on: 17/07/2013

Turned up at the airport to find that our prepaid seats had been sold to some-one else. When we arrived at the hotel (Princess Irida ) the manager was falling over himself to attend to the young teenage girls. Music blasted out until 6am meaning there was no sleep for me or my 15 year old special needs child. Pool was unusable as it was usually filled with cigarette ends and rubbish. Olympic Rep had absolutely no interest in us as we weren't teenagers and didn't want to join the booze… Read Full Review

“Simple but good”

Written on: 17/07/2013

We booked fairly late so were pleased this accommodation was available. Close to Chania so the transfer time was OK. The room was simple but all you need for a sun and beach holiday (we were 3 adults in the room which was a bit crowded but not the end of the world). Very helpful hotel/appartment owner's daughter who spoke good English and was able to provide all the we needed. Air conditioning is 5 euros per day extra but well worth the expenditure. We had the use of the hotel's… Read Full Review

“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
