“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

The room was very good , clean and good view. The place of the hotel is good near to port and no far away from old town if you have car or motorcycle. Most of the beaches are close.
The rooms has full equipment but the wifi sometimes didn't have good coverage and no outside to balcony but wasn't so important for us. The balcony and the room was big enough .

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

it is a very nice hotel with an outstanding view of votsi's green blue waters...:) :) :) our room was renovated , very clean,with fan so you dont need to use the airconditiong while you are sleeping, with seperated kitchen fully equiped. bathroom renovated and very clean. The best of all ofcourse is when you open the door to the balcony which is big with shelter and chaiselongues overlooking that amazing view of the little port of votsi...

I d like to mention too the green blue waters of Alonnissos, so more and more people knowing. And furthermore Alonnissos is not windy, so its possible to swim everyday fearless. The view that you ve mentioned is from the top floor studio that is like everything is on your feet, so amazing. Thank you for your comment

Rooms are very well equipped, nice and clean. The view is amazing over the sea and the small fishing boats from Votsi (especially from 1st floor).
Very calm, good breakfast, owner very kind!
Thank you Maria for a great stay in Pension Votsi!

We arrived back from heaven late last night. This was our 4th time in Alonissos in 5 years, always staying at Pension Votsi and my only regret is that the year we didn't come to Alonissos, we should have done. Maria keeps a spotless property. The rooms are cleaned every day and the cleaner always does a great job. As many people will be aware, you cannot put loo paper down the loo, it has to go in a bin so it's great that it is emptied every day.

The rooms improve every year. Last year, the bathroom had been completely refitted, with a proper walk in shower (rare in Greece) and the bed headboards replaced. This year, the steps had been redone, and the bedding.

The rooms are large, the balcony vast, with sunbeds, chairs, a table and airer, and the views over the bay are breathtaking. The slatted wooden partition between balconies has been replaced with a solid wall, a bit disappointing, as we used to hinge the partition back in the evening to have drinks with our friends next door.

The room had a king size bed and a single, a ceiling fan and free air con, which was great at night. Also free TV, and a wallsafe which was also free. We travel with Sunvil, which is an excellent company, and we always get a welcome pack in the room, which contains fruit, water, wine, bread, tea, coffee, juice, butter, jam and biscuits, in fact, everything to get you over the first evening/morning.

Maria, the owner keeps a close eye on what goes on, and is always ready to offer a kind word, timely advice or just a friendly hello. Her mum also greets us daily. We cannot fault either the room, or the service.
Votsi has a few friendly tavernas, the best pizza cafe in Greece, and one supermarket. The main port of Patitiri is just a 20 minute walk away and has everything you need.
Last week, my wife was bitten by a dog in the village, and sadly developed cellulitis, and so was balcony bound for the last 3 days of the holiday. Our Rep visited daily, found a doctor to visit twice at no cost. The local pizza cafe cooked me takeaways every evening so I could be with my wife, and also provided me with free beer, even though the Greek people are really suffering this year. Maria came to see if we were OK, the cleaner provided extra pillows etc so my wife could keep her leg elevated - in fact, everyone was so helpful and really cared. The owner of one of the tavernas even stopped his van in the middle of the road one day to ask if she was getting better.
You don't really go on holiday to Alonissos, you just spend 2 weeks living with the locals as part of the community. It really is magic. We've been coming to the Greek islands for over 20 years, but Alonissos has something you just can't describe. If when I'm dead, I find myself in Votsi, then I'll be happy, for I know I will have come home to heaven. And my room number? I'm not going to tell you. I want it back next year. Well done Maria, Dinah, Julia, Yannis and all who made us part of their lives.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor for the best views (but more steps to climb)

Your words are very touching and you can justify this little report(essay) that you wrote. Due to the recovery of your wife that you spend inside the room, its obvious and primary need to have someone to give you strength and help you in such difficult situation that you were passing through. Such a kind of hospitality you may find at all over Alonnissos and similar islands in Greece that have small communities. About the decadency of economy,Well whats the meaning of money, if you are not healthy and dont live the moments that you were describe. I ensure you that Greece in the past was in worst situation than it is now and people was more happy and spend their difficult situation easier like a fist. You gave a full description of the room and thank you for the photos that you uploaded. I see that you have spend much time for all this and im thankful of you. As you said the topmost floor the better view. About the cleaner as you know, she's working for us many years and know's how to do her best to keep the rooms clean. We hope to see you again and have such a wonderful time as you mention at the closure of your report. Best regards from all the family

My wife and I discovered Alonissos in 2011. We enjoyed a wonderful two week holiday based at Pension Votsi (Maria Apartments). We found Pension Votsi to be an ideal base for enjoying the island – as well as the supermarket and Taverna’s in Votsi, a wider choice within Roussoum and Patitiri are within walking distance, (we enjoy walking !). A choice of beaches and secluded bays are reachable on foot – pre breakfast swims to the Sea Caves were great. We occupied a top floor studio with stunning views over Votsi harbour. The studio are spacious, well maintained and serviced everyday. Nothing is too much trouble. We returned to Pension Votsi for our summer holiday in 2012 (the studios had been upgraded). After comparing with alternatives holiday’s we have decided to stay again next month – cannot wait !

Room Tip: Top Floor S/C have best views
