Owner is cranky and rude to the staff and the guests. Couldn't believe it received such a ridicules service. Didn't want to help in anything and everything we asked for was refused or we had to argue for (extra towels and sheet etc.) Staff was confused and stressed. Poor breakfast .Never have I had such an experience. Beautiful view though... More

Very nicely done holiday complex (the owners are architects), with attention to detail and decoration, rich breakfast, beautiful rooms and patio. Well kept and fairly well cleaned, ample parking space, nice view, nice swimming pool area and a fair rate. I would go back. Sifnos is a gem and I have been going for 20 years. This hotel stands out... More

Had a week with my family at the Lighthouse Hotel on Sifnos , a beautiful, unspoilt Greek Island. Sifnos is a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary Greek. Great beaches, easy to get around, and Appolinaris, the main town is awash with stylish little restaurants, white alleyways and great shopping. We stayed at Lighthouse Hotel in Faros, overlooking the ocean.... More

Beautifull location for relaxing, nice, clean apartments, great view, nature all around, personnel very helpfull, charming hotel manager but a little bit distant, reasonable rates for a familly. Pleasant surprise: the apartments were more like small, organised habitats, rather than hotel apartments. We were offered warm homemade cake, and morning coffee free of charge. When it wasn't blowing and there... More

The hotel is nice and roomsare well decorated. It has two very nice pools, one for small children too. BUT there're on e big problem: location! It's on a hill top and there's ALWAYS too much wind. You basically cannot have breakfast outside, you cannot use the pools and you can hardly sleep at night because of the swirl of... More

We have been 6 nights at Lighthouse. Their web site is very well done, but the use of wide angle gives the feeling that the appartments are bigger than they are in reality. Our appartment had a separate bedroom with 50 centimeters around the bed. The position is good, near Faros, the construction beautiful, but it is a pity that... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Hotel, but there are a few quirks: a rental car is an absolute must, even if you dont plan to explore the island. Sophia was kind enough to drive to the bus stop to pick up our luggage, but we immediately understood that it would be very unpractical without a car. We got... More

If you make the mistake and choose to stay at Lighthouse hotel, then you should take the following into considereation: - the hotel is not in walking distance from the beach or Faros village. You need a car for any transportation -the reception closes from 3-7 so if you need anything during these hours, well, you just won't get it!!.... More
