Returned from a two week holiday here this morning. I must say this is one of the better hotels I have stayed in on all the Greek Islands. It is a family run business, with all the produce for the meals coming from their own businesses (farms, butchers etc.). We stayed in room 404 which I believe is in the... More

After reading the reviews before I went I was worried........... I need not have been!!!! We (my partner, myself and my 2 children 8 and 6) arrived late at night and got taken to the new block.

So I'll talk mainly about the hotel and then I will briefly discuss the area. This hotel is excellent value for money and you must remember that you get what you pay for! Myself and my partner arrived in the evening and were told by the receptionist to leave our bags and get something to eat before the dinner ends... More

This hotels service and food was exeptional. The staff went out of their way to please us during our stay. Including teaching my son greek phrases. We had a late flight home and the hotel offered us a complimentary room. All in all great holiday.
