“HOTEL IN A GREEK ISLAND FAR FROM THE SEA”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

A tacky and pretentious self denominated 5 star hotel in an island in Greece far from the sea.
The rude manager tried to give us the worst room available.
Breakfast was bad , low quality products, no toaster.

I wanted a place to chill out and relax off the beaten path, so I chose this island / hotel. The only mistake I made was showing up with my brother. This is definitely more of a couples setting. It was very quiet and serene. The hotel seems fairly new as the rooms and surroundings were in good condition and seemed to be cared for well. They have real bathrooms - if they only had a shower holder or shower head.

The pool and surrounding areas are very nice for lounging and soaking up some sun, then cooling off in the interim. The staff was pleasant and helpful, although they weren't the quickest I've ever encountered. You are not going to find any bargain shopping here with your food or drinks, but what can expect for such convenience.

There is a lovely view of the Panagia directly behind the property, looking up the hill. It looks very nice at sunrise and sunset. You will not have any sort of sea view from this property, but it is a nice place situated on the entrance to town.

Room Tip: Definitely attempt to get a second floor unit if possible. Also, you may not want to be too close t...

A picturesque hotel in Folegandros island in Cyclades.
Lovely rooms with private balconies and pool view.
Although the hotel has no sea view the nice pool and the Cycladic design view of the hotel leave you with the best impression.
Do not miss the boat trip to the inaccessible beaches.

We went to Chorat on July 2010 and we had a great time there , the room was very clean & comfortable , the location is good ( not in the center of the town but in a 3 minutes walk you are there) , the breakfast was good , the service was very friendly ( the problem is that they are not local people & some times are not able to give yougood indications) , the drinks at the pool were not so good the mojito we tried was horrible , we tried the spa and was good, the pool was great , just what you need when you get back from the beach.
I would recommend this hotel , it is a great hotel in a wonderful island.

Stayed at this hotel in July and absolutely loved it!! Not only is the hotel gorgeous, but it is a five minute walk from Chora.
Rooms: The rooms were beautiful and very clean. Our room had its own balcony which overlooked the church in Chora, which, when lit up at night, is so beautiful!!
Grounds/pool: The hotel looks like a typical Grecian village. All the rooms are white washed or stone with blue doors and blue windows. The breakfast buffet was good, and the hotel also has its own restaurant. There is even a small chapel on the grounds. The pool was huge and gorgeous.
Location: Loved the location of this hotel because it was a five minute walk from Chora. Some of the other reviews complain that the hotel is close to a gas station, but this really wasn't an issue at all and I barely noticed it.
Service: I thought the service was great. When we checked in, we were notified that there was going to be a wedding reception on the grounds tomorrow night, and that it might get noisy. Because of this, they gave all their guests a free car rental for the day. The wedding was actually fun to watch because they had a band playing traditional greek music, so not only did we get free entertainment, but also a car!!
Overall, I thought this was an amazing hotel. Folegandros as an island was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, so definitely travel to Folegandros and stay at the Chora Resort!!
