Rooms are perfect for a dive resort and clean and have a spacious basic bathroom and a bed with a mosquito net.So nothing special until now right? But now it comes.

We spent two weeks at the resort and loved it. Rhomé and Mia made us very welcome in the hotel and on the dive boats and we went to all the different locations available for snorkelling- amazing variety of sea life, even from the surface. There is a small daily surcharge for snorkellers to join the boats, it's worth it... More

I really wanted to give Bastianos a good review, but I just couldn't. Where do I begin? The room came with no locker to secure your personal belonging.

We strongly recommend Bastianos Dive Resort for any divers or people enjoying snorkelling. The place is very cosy and you’ll enjoy beautiful sunsets evening after evening – if lucky, you’ll even see some wild dauphins playing far in the seawater! The rooms are very clean and comfortable.
