All the reviews we read prior to visiting the Ammos Hotel said it was a great place to go, but that didn't do it enough justice...it was much much better! The warmth of the greeting was exceptional, not over the top, just friendly and welcoming, we relaxed and felt at home immediately.
The hotel is immaculate, beautifully designed with simple style and quirky features. The location is about as good as you can get as it sits on the side of a small beach meaning that you go to sleep at night to the sound of the waves lapping onto the shore.
As for the service, well what can we say...WOW! Nothing was a problem and the team have found the right mix of friendliness, fun with absolute professionalism - they had a lot of patience and a sense of humour as we tried to learn one or two words of Greek...Efharisto (thank you) Poppy & Stavrola.
We stayed in room 19 which was perfect for the week, sitting on the balcony watching the sun set, drinking Gin & Tonic overlooking the sea was special. The food was excellent and we can recommend the Mezze for lunch.
Overall, thank you to Nikos and the amazing team for making our stay so enjoyable, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
