To be honest, those girls as mentioned below were screaming and causing a show late at night most nights, and if theyd been on holiday to europe before, theyd realise that security is not like in Britain. The hotel had strict policies about bringing people home with you on a night, and this girl insisted that a guy come in....therefore they had it coming to them and at least it shut them up for a night.

The atmosphere changed in the 2 weeks we were there, as 20yr olds we felt we were the oldest in the first wk surrounded by 17yr olds, but in the second wk, along with aforementioned girls, there were quite a few more families and couples. Although Id never bring my family here, it is far enough out of town to avoid the bingedrinking scenery of laganas main strip.
3 out of 4 of us were horrendously ill however, but apparently quite a few of the reps and other hotel guests had 'the bug'...i ended up on antibiotics and losing half a stone! Not as many ppl seemed to catch it in the 2nd wk as in the 1st.
Olympic reps are fine, as incapable as any other to be quite honest. Dont book excursions with them, we went into town and booked them ourselves at about a third the price. Daren however is very friendly and wants to keep the atmosphere amicable...when you deliberatly or drunkenly flout the hotel rules, you get whats coming.
Personally wouldn't go back, think the resort in general is a bit of a dive, everywhere stank of sewage...its not as good as other clubbing resorts such as Ayia Napa, Malia, Kos or Kavos, but apart from the sickness the actual appartments were quite decent. And no offence, but what does a Greek cleaner need an English mobile phone for girls, use your heads and let her take off your dirty bed sheets!!!
