Great hotel, very attentive staff, good food very close to many local tavernas also. Top tip, take the airport transfer and get a hire car at Sami. Car best bet for exploring the magnificent island. Must see are AgiaEffimia ( 20 mins drive ) coffee on the first cafe on the corner with Free cake very nice, Asos very unspoilt... More

The staff at this hotel are the most friendly and helpful of any hotel I have stayed in. The hotel itself is set in beautifully kept grounds, everything is clean..the sheets and towels are changed everyday. The nearby village of Sami has some lovely tavernas....the mermaid, a family run restaurant was our favourite.

A really wonderful hotel, very clean and all the staff were incredibly friendly and pleasant! I loved the double beds down by the pool, they were very comfortable! The pool was a little on the cool side for me but the husband really enjoyed it. We were very lucky as it was the start of the season, we had the... More

Spent a week here in July 2014 with my girlfriend. We loved everything about the place. The staff at the hotel were great, especially the 2 blokes who served drinks and dinner in the evening. The location was great. The sun loungers by the pool were a nice touch. We heard about the 3* sister hotel athina next door being... More

Stayed there in July 2014. After leaving our previous hotel(see my review about hotel Athina- just acrosss the road) this one seemed like a paradise. It's a cute small and friendly hotel in a wonderful site.The rooms are very spacious, clean, with a breathtaking view. The staff is exceptional. My daughter got sick during our stay there and the staff... More

This was a Thomson holiday taken in mid Sept 2014; flights with Norwegian and a private taxi across the island to the hotel. The hotel was very good, probably not quite a 5 star but certainly above 4. The room was a good size with a decent balcony looking over the pool to the sea. The restaurant was good with... More

The staff at this hotel try very hard to be everything to all guests. However a half dozen cabanas around the pool, free safe and tea making facilities doesn't make for a 5 star hotel. The shape of the main building and position of the 2 residential blocks face over the pool. The balconies are not private, having low glass... More

Positioned in an ideal spot on the beautiful Ionian Coast this hotel is pure luxury. Superb cleanliness, efficient and friendly staff, ample amount of sunbeds and sunshades. Amazing views from the rooms. Bar in hotel not particularly well stocked but visit the Athina next door for an amazing experience. Beds are rather hard but this did not detract from an... More

The last two years we have been to Greece - last year Lindos (Rhodes) and the year before Kos both 5* hotels. We were greeted with a drink ie sparkling wine and cold flannel and whisked away in golf buggies to our room with luggage to be greeted with either a complimentary bottle or fresh fruit / flowers.
