Excellent hotel, good accommodation with very friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast very good. Stunning views. Not the best location unless you are reasonably fit. The hotel is on a very steep hillside and is 30 minutes + walk to the harbour/square in town along a very narrow lane which services numerous hotels. 8€ taxi each way. Car almost essential. That said...

The hotel was lovely and the staff also. Breakfast was okay with plenty of choice. Even SROUTS one morning!!!!! The downside was they charged extra for everything. We had to pay extra for the safe in our room, towels, internet, storing our baggage on checkout day. Really quite annoying. Apart from that we had a lovely holiday

Nikos is ever attentive at the pool bar and the food was good through...

A previous review states that they don't understand all the good reviews unless from people who have a low standard to start with, well my standards are far from low and I give this place top marks! I would suggest adjusting expectations and taking from the reviews, both...

We arrived just after midnight during their first week of the season (first week in May). We hauled the cases up the steep drive to the steps up to reception and left them there, as advised by another reviewer. The reason for this is simple; if you are staying in a bungalow, you head back down the stairs outside to...

First impressions...very quiet. Got a bit busier towards the end of our stay but the atmosphere was still peaceful. The views are beautiful. I would advise you hire a car...
