Alona studios are a 10-15min walk away from the beach. We knew about the location and we don't mind walking so this was no problem. We had a nice and spacious family room with a terrace. The room was equipped with a water boiler and a fridge as well as a sink. There were also some plates and cups. The...

Firstly we booked from agoda and when we arrived late, we were told they had overbooked and the owner said he would find a place comparable within the area. What we received was a very poor small room no where near the quality that we expected for our money. I said maybe you can take care of us, with a...

We are supposed to stay 2 nights at this studios but we changed our mind. Not because of the accommodation but because we have nothing else to do near Alona beach. We did the country tour already and checked out Alona Beach on our first day. They have clean rooms/studios. The best part is the ground rooms facing the pool....

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in the deluxe room. It has two single beds placed side by side together. These beds were totally horrible!!! The foams were paper thin that you could feel the wooden slats underneath. Plus it had an undesirable stench to it. Not to mention that the pillows were paper thin too. What a relaxing...

Pros: The place is cheap and very spacious. It included two beds, a small kitchen, a small living area and balcony overlooking the pool. Its very quiet. The receptionist are accommodating. Very smooth transaction with checking in and out. Cons: Far from the beach and they need to put more lights along the pathway so people can easily see which...

This has been the worst hotel experience I've ever had. After accidently overflowing the water in the sink on the floor, the hotel owner claimed that we owed him thousands of dollars in water damage even before stepping into our room. He claimed that we damaged the furniture, tiles, caused his water pump to break, and septic tank to overflow...
