midnight arrival, transfer to hotel was by taxi, took less than 1 hr, being tired gave b/fast a miss. the hotel has 40 rooms 2 blocks of ten one of 5 and the rest in the main building. the people who run the hotel are from hungry and lease the hotel from the greek owner, and are into their third year, all the staff employed there are from hungry or surrounding countries, but were all nice. Work is being done to freshen up the hotel, a new kiichen and new rooms have been fitted to the main building, we had a large room upstairs with a lovely pool and sea view, and 2 balconies airconditioning at no extra cost unlike some hotels, our room was cleaned reguarly toilet bin emptied every day. B/fast was your usual for greece, sliced cheese, meat, boiled egg, yogurt, fruit olives , if you wanted a omelette or something different it was just a case of asking and you got it, snacks at midday , evening meal was a choice of several european dishes, not a lot of greek dishes served at night. .Being all-inclusive drinks were served from 9 in the morning to when ever , and all the drinks supplied , spirits beer and wine were all brand names, first night there there was no vodka, so we spoke to the marta who ran the place with her husband, no problem nipped up to the local supermarked and came back with a couple of bottles of absolute vodka, none of your rubbish, unlike some incusive hotels who only supply inferior drinks to their guests. Beach was close by, but very pebbley, but certainly not overcrowded, , 3 restaurants nearby served some lovely fish dishes. A 10 min walk took you into the village of gedanni with its small bars and tavernas , fruit shop and local baker and supermarket, being a typical greek village these were open all year round. We liked this hotel because it was small and friendly, and a quiet location, you won't see many brits at this hotel, mostly poles and hungarians, germans and french, We did a tour to lindos to visit the acropolis, be prepared to queue to get to the top, but worth it once you get there. We would definately go back to gedanni again and maybe the same hotel again, but there is plenty of property to rent in the surrounding area for those wanting to go self catering. On our departure day we had a 0140 flight in the morning, we asked could we keep our room until 9 at night, and they only charged us €10, that was cheap, 3 years ago in zante we were charged €30. Our 2 wks in ampelia beach was a last minute booking , certainly worth it. And finally while waiting for our bus to pick us up at 10, two of the girls who worked there agi who did the bar, and ade who did our room, came to say goodby with a bottle of hungarian snapps and 2 small glasses insisting we have a farewell drink with them , how nice. we found out ade was fond of ballantines and coke, so we bought her a bottle so she and her friends could have drink on us
