We have been in this hotel for three times already and it will not be the last time. The room is large and clean. The view of Balos beach is fantastic, either from the room, the pool or the bar area. The personal is very friendly and tries eveything to help no matter what question we had. The hotel itself... More

Large rooms, clean, simple, good breakfast. Close to Balos Beach and pretty close to Falassarna, but the hotel is very isolated. In fact, you can't reach any place, both restaurants or the closer small village of kaliviani without the car. The staff at the reception was gentle.

It's a good place to visit the West. Our room was simple but large, and we enjoyed the sea view every breakfast/diner in our balcony. There is a beautiful pool and a beach where you can do some snorkeling. The snack food is not very tasty but you can cook in the apartment. We didn't try the restaurant.

Very comfortable hotel with a wonderful view on the gulf and relaxin atmosphere. Perfect as a point of departure to the astonishing beauty of Balos beach, but also close to Falassarna and not far from Elafonisi. We were there five days in mid July with my wife and our two daughters. The room was comfortable and wide the view on... More

I would recommend this hotel for those who want an escape from noisy cities.The best for families with youngsters and older people. The area is away form noisy roads, next to olive tree farm and some lovely goats graze across the hotel. A car is a must here, because there is no other way to reach the nearby town or... More

To stay here, you have to have a car. Then you could be easily connected the town with appr. 7~8 minutes drive. The staff is really nice and helpful. The fridge helps a lot store the fruits and drinks in summer time. The swimming pool is very big with nice sea view. Huge balcony with table and chairs, it would... More

A resort-style hotel that we visited because friends decided to stay here. The location is a bit isolated as there's nothing next to the hotel itself and the nearest shops/town is a few kilometres away. So a car is necessary unless you want to spend your whole time staying and eating at the hotel. The staff were friendly. We had... More

We stayed in this hotel for some days this summer and, considering the standard this was really very very nice. The room was big with a very beautiful balcony with sea view. The pool was big and clean. We did not eat in the hotel but all other services were really very good. I strongly recommend it.
