Our travel agent set us up with this place, and I guess I didn't look into it any further before we went. The hotel itself was nice enough.
Pros: Pretty hotel, clean, decent breakfast, nice pool, good view.
However, we did not realize how far from everything we were. We were on a budget and trying to avoid renting scooters (safety concerns) so it was a challenge to get around. We were told buses came once an hour, but weren't very consistent. The front desk wasn't too helpful with information on that. They did call a taxi for us, and we had no problem with that. As others have mentioned, the hotel being on a steep hill made it challenging to access, especially with luggage. My boyfriend befriended the rental car place at the bottom of the hill and they helped us out tremendously.
If we had transportation set up, it wouldn't have been too bad. It is definitely needed to get around the island from this hotel location. We are used to walking, but it wasn't the best place to walk from. Also, when we landed at the ferry dock, we called the hotel and they were not helpful with helping us find the hotel. Luckily we started walking, asked around, and figured it out ourselves. Taxis were non existent and they wouldn't send one for us. Not exactly the best start to a stay when you have to pull your luggage and walk to the hotel.
The struggle we had getting around just outweighed the positives for this location. If you want to be in Tourlous, it would be a good hotel. We went on to Naxos and Santorini after, had hotels about 10-15 minutes outside of town and had no problem getting around there.
