“Amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

I can't say enough positive about faros. Already at first mail contact the service just been amazing. Dimos the manager helped me and my family with everything needed both about the accommodation and all transport needed.
Dimos and his coworkers meet us at the harbor and drove us the back roads while they guided us trough the city center and beach walk.

The Faros studios are situated about 15min walking from the center. "The walk is really relaxing after enjoying the tavernas in the center".
Faros has an magnificent view over the bay with its own little beach. The rooms are very clean and the taverna has very tasty dishes.
Every morning during Tilos best breakfast the Faros special they did make up the room and cleaned it.

Sitting on the verandah and hearing the sound of Greek music together with the waves makes you feel relaxed.

Faros studios is a very cosy and lovely place for all that want to experience the true Greek style with all friendliness you can think of.

We highly recommend Faros.

Just back from a lovely stay at Faros hotel. It is a little further away from the main town than other hotels, but the walk is rather nice around the bay as well as flat and well lit at night. The owners pick you up and take you back to the ferry port so heavy bags are no problem. They also were very thoughtful - helping with ferry times and tickets without us asking. Nothing was too much trouble. Sea front view room was lovely and in the shade over midday and the morning (facing the sunset) - perfect for sitting outside. The small, pebbly (practically private) beach with parasols and sun loungers was perfect also. The house red was excellent and we recommend all the food. Very good wifi.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this hotel with it´s charming, professional but still familiar atmosphere! Quality food (the breakfast!!!!! with homemade pies etc and figs from the trees in the backyard) and wine. Clean, caring, helpful, friendly - the owners really deserve all the credit/praise we can find words for!

Room Tip: of course rooms on second floor towards the sea is a treasure!

When our ferry to Tilos didn't sail, Dimos arranged an overnight stay in Rhodes plus transfers from the airport and to the ferry port. I thought that this was above and beyond the call of duty. This gives you a clue as to the level of hospitality offered by Dimos and Rula - both incredibly welcoming and helpful.

The hotel is in such a beautiful position - hard to beat. The sound of gently lapping waves on the little beach in front of the property sends us to sleep and greets us in the morning. The crystal clear water is perfect - and the late afternoon sun makes the little beach the perfect spot after a day's walking. The 20 minute walk into Livadia with its restaurants and little shops, is really pleasant.

The hotel is kept beautifully clean - and the public areas are very pretty with plants and flowers blooming everywhere.

Our room is a good size, with a balcony overlooking the bay. Facilities in the room are fine.

We opted for a full breakfast which has been exceedingly generous. Lovely yogurt and honey, ham and eggs, toast and preserves, coffee and fresh orange juice. Served on the terrace with a smile.

We also had dinner and lunch at the hotel - good home cooked food.

Coming to Tilos in May is a very peaceful experience. We suspect that we may be the only people in the hotel at present! So if you want the place to yourself, come to Tilos in early May!!

Faros is a great place to stay. We suspect it is the best spot on the island!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

My family and I love this place! It is on the edge of the Livadia Harbor, and it gets every last drop of sunlight. The room are always very clean and all of them but one look on the sea. The restaurant is also very good. Dimos, the manager, is the typical fast talking, busy and kind Greek, and will always make you feel welcome. It also has a small private beach, with clear water.

Spent a couple of nights in August 2012. The owners, Dimos and his mother Rula, are very friendly and always try to help: they came to fetch us at the port and took back on departure day. The guesthouse has different rooms but ask for the sea front ones since are the best: at night you can keep the window open and listen to the sea. No air conditioning needed thanks to the breeze. Food is very good: prices are little bit higher than in the rest of the island but reasonable if compared to quality.
In front of the guesthouse there is a narrow beach - just a few sunbeds - but there is also a jetty so can spend the day there if you do not want to move around.
The main village is about 30 min walk, following the pedestrian path along the seaside (very quite and beautiful). In general, it's a high recommended place to stay.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms highly recommended

Great welcoming from Dimos and Rula, wonderful location on the bay, excellent food,... What's more to be on heaven? Faros is a superbe way to enjoy an authentic Greek island as Tilos is. Highly recomended from an Italian guy!
