I stayed at this hotel for 6 months between 2013 and 2014 while on business. Recently returned for a one night stay, and was pleasantly reminded of just how high the service standards are. Great location, facilities, super clean, and an amazing team of people. A truly outstanding experience. Difficult to surpass!

Comfortable, well run hotel. Faces the Aegean Sea. Great, helpful staff. Good food. I am not, however, a fan of duvets, but it seems all hotels now use them. Pity. A light blanket would be more comfortable.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The rooms are nice, new and modern with good sized bathrooms. The water pressure was GREAT! The location is right on the water, with great views and close to area attractions (parks, dining, ruins, markets, etc). I highly recommend this hotel.
