We were warmly greeted by Minas and Flora. Diafani is a pretty town on the beach on the island of Warpaths and DoranaHotel Apartments are perfectly located. The room was cheerful and clean with a very comfortable bed, bath and a balcony with a nice and wide open view. It was good to get back there after a long hike.... More

Stayed here so many times. Rooms are clean and perfect. Also you get the amazing hosts of Minas and Flora who cannot do enough for you. Plus Flora is a great cook. Short walk to beach. Summer many boat trips and you have Corali and Golden beach restaurants

Diafani is the perfect place for me as bookwriter to find inspiration - and lot of new friends. The owners are so kind and hospitable. My latest five books are inspired at Karpathos and especially Diafani - my Paradise on Earth.

A big and clean room with balcony. The breakfast was good. Also the price was good. The owner and his wife were always ready to help us. This small hotel is ideal for a relaxing and hassle free vacation.

Comfortable two night stay during our island hopping holiday this year. Minas and his wife are very friendly and helpful - Minas gave us a lift to Olymbos, and then came back for us 1.5 hours later. And wouldn't take any payment. Rooms and beds comfortable. Breakfast is simple but ample. If we get to Diafani again we'd love to... More

The family owned Dorana studios is a fine place to stay in quiet and relaxing Diafani. Minas and Flora are great hosts and maintain clean and well appointed rooms. Lots of good advice on where to eat and walk. Stayed for the 4 days between ferries from Rhodes and to Crete.

CON: we stayed there for two weeks: bad, extremely noisy beds, even at the simple movement during sleep. Noisy external construction (possible movable items on the terrace), which in combination with the permanent windy conditions of the area make sleep impossible without ear plugs. Minimal cooking and kitchenware equipment (two small boiling pots, plates, glasses and knifes,forks, spoons). No item... More
