This was our second visit to this wonderful small hotel with friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble. Rania and her team go out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. We opt for half board at a cost of €15 a day and its well worth it as we love breakfast by the pool and our evening... More

The manageress makes the hotel, she works day and night and is very hands on. She always has a welcome smile and is always there to help. The rooms are kept clean... More

Rania and her staff definately went the extra mile to make our stay special. Nice pool deep enough to play in, small section for toddlers in safety. We stayed in room 106. The stairs looked a bit daunting for us at first at 66 years. We were immediately offered to change to a ground floor. However the view from the... More

They are well appointed by Greek standards including a microwave & toaster. The food in the on site taverna is very good and reasonably priced. Prices in the bar are no... More
