Page Dropped Can't Figure Out What Is Wrong. Can You Help?

I have a page that used to rank high on Google before the Penguin and Panda updates. It is a high commercial page:

URL and key words removed

After the Google updates, the page rank has dropped considerably.
I guess there is something wrong with the page but can't find out what it is.

Could you give me some advices about what might be wrong?

The page is about accommodation in the island of Andros in Greece.
It is divided in accommodation's types (with links to hotels, suites, rooms, etc) and accommodation's locations with links to several beach resorts offering accommodation.

One of my clues is that it is maybe over optimized due to the accommodation type "hotels" that goes to the page "/hotels/andros-hotels.htm"
I was thinking of maybe renaming that page tou "hotel rooms" instead.
So far I changed the metas and text to "accommodation" instead of "hotels" as I noticed that Google considers it as the same keyword and I wanted to make a difference between pages /hotels/ & /hotels/andros-hotels.htm

Anyway, I am a bit lost here and would appreciate a lot some of your advices.

Many thanks!

You would be better off doing something useful instead.


Anyway, we are not big on rankings around, they are NOT a useful measure of anything.


Have traffic and conversions dropped as well?
