The Pyli Bay Hotel is very very clean and thats about it! It is in two seperate blocks the old block and the new block. We stayed in the new block and the pool and rooms are all in excellent condition and very clean. The pool is quite big and has a seperate pool area for the kids which is nice and shallow but small. We didnt spend alot of time in the old block as it was miles away, however had to walk there for all our meals.

The food is ok, however not alot of varierty and nothing at all for kids. Apparently it was all inclusive but ended up eating out most nights and buying our own drinks. The brochure stated that all local drinks were inclusive, however, only lemon, orange, cola, water, beer, wine, oozo and brandy were available, anything else you had to buy! That was a problem for my partner and myself as we are both diabetics and there were no diet drinks available to us at all and had to buy our own! We complained about this to the manager who said he would get diet coke in for us. We were pleased for his help however the next day we were fobbed off with watered down ordinary cola which could have put us in hospital if we had of drank it! There is no staff on site, just a barmaid during the day and a very aggressive night time barman.

After the diet coke issue we were told by the manager to go to the shops to buy our own! They were very unhelpful and dont think they realised the danger of feeding diabetics with sugary pop! I was quite fed up with iced water by this stage!

Night times were very boring indeed, there is no entertainment at all and no daytime entertainment. The brochure states that there is mini golf and tennis, however there is only 2 golf clubs and one ball and lots of guests. Therefore, be prepared to provide your own entertainment especially for the kids.

There's a few health and safety issues around the pool including very slippery steps and breeze blocks holding up parasols which a few of us tripped over as they blend into the colour of the floor tiles so beware.

for being all inclusive the hotel has got it wrong, we were only fed breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is no midday snacks apart from icecream for 1 hour and coffee and tea for 1 hour, and by the time you've walked to the old block and waited in the queues its hardly worth it.

The staff are ignorant and unhelpful. We had to check out of our hotel at 10am and we werent getting picked up until 3.30am the next day. We were told we could have a courtesy room between 9 of us which was great as we could have a shower etc, then when we went to ask for it they shrugged their shoulders and told us it had been given to somebody else! We sat around all night and early morning in the lounge getting eaten by mosquitos and one of the female members of staff was spraying mozzi spray near reception, so we asked if she could spray near where we were sitting too and she said she didnt need to as the air conditioning unit was on! How unhelpful!

Overall, the holiday was good and we provided our own entertainment as there was 9 of us, the weather was great but not much else to do in Marmari. I wouldnt reccommend the Pyli Bay hotel to anybody, its a waste of money - if youre already booked good luck!
