Beautiful, relaxing surroundings, slightly spoiled by a noisy cockeral and over-eager staff.
The walls to my room were paper thin which meant you could hear everything in the rooms next to you - and I mean everything. It was like you were all in one big dorm. That wasn’t really a major problem for me though.
What really, really did annoy me (and my mate who was staying in another room here too), was the fact that each morning you’d get a knock at 8:30am from the maids asking to be let in to clean you’re room. As you can imagine, being woken up every morning on your time off was infuriating; you’d tell them no and then an hour later they’d be back. The cleaning team really spoiled our stay if I’m honest, which I feel bad saying because they were nice and friendly and did a good job (remembering to leave bottled water each day which most places out here say they’ll do but don’t) but they need to master the art of invisible service.
Once I was up and down for breakfast (which was usually around 9) I’d then have to wait to go back to my room as they’d be in there cleaning it. My advice would be they need to chill and tidy rooms when guests leave the resort for the day - DO NOT WAKE GUESTS UP TO FIT YOUR SCHEDULE!
Also, there was a bloody cockerel next door which started cawing at 4:30 am every morning, waking me up, every morning.
Had it not been for these things, it would have been 5 stars all the way but they really impacted my stay. Would this stop me going back? No - the resort is truly stunning - but I’d bring some ear plugs and a do not disturb sign, which I noticed were absent.
Nice pool, beautiful surroundings. Kep, itself, was very chilled out.
