We have recently returned from staying at this hotel as a party of 44 for a wedding taking place in Plaka. Everyone was staying for different lengths and durations and the hotel weren't very organised with check in, people who weren't all inclusive we're given wrist bands which were then embarrassingly removed during lunch service by the restaurant manager.

Last week of june we stayed in this hotel. We did not know what to expect, but it was acgreat positive surprise: nice rooms, good greek food, super friendly personnel....it could not be better.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from 25 August 2013 to 1 September. The rooms were clean, the view was beautiful, the staff was kind and helpful. We enjoyed the food, not very divers but tasty and traditional. I enjoyed the Greek yoghurt, the salads and sweets and my husband liked the meat and the meals containing shrimps,... More

I recommend this hotel for everybody who likes a peaceful, resting experience. New bungalows are located on a hill slope & thanks to this there is a nice view around. Location could cause some problems for old people or parents with small children, especially when somebody stays on the top, 6th level. The bungalow itself consists of a big room... More

LOCATION: The hotel is in a great place. You can walk easily to the town center, which is beautiful. It was really important to us. BEACHES: There are two small beaches in front of the hotel, but it is not for full day bathing, because there are so many people. You can walk about 300 meters to a big sandy... More
