“Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Rizes lived up to all my expectations and more. The rooms are spacious, beautifully designed with gorgeous private terraces and kept very clean by excellent cleaners on a daily basis.
The staff are all without exception helpful and friendly which certainly added to our holiday. The hotel is run by Olga who is just fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and her cheerful, friendly personality gives something special to the hotel.
It's well located just 5 minutes drive from the port or a 20min walk,with the best beaches in Serifos all within walking distance to the hotel..the furthest being a 20min walk.
It's a great hotel for families or couples, I took my 2 children who loved it but I could have just as easily holidayed there with friends or a partner and had a great time.
The views of the island are stunning thanks to the location. I would highly recommend it!

we didn't stay but we went there for a late evening drink. the place is fantastic, by the pool, choose the sofa.
I asked for my specific version of daiquiri and they did it perfectly. Also they switch off the lights and you can stare at the excellent night sky enjoying your drink.

Certainly one of my favourite hotels!Unique design, great view to the sea, excellent service...The room was very clean with an equipped kitchenette and a really big bathroom. The architecture of the hotel was traditional but in a modern way...!!!Balance is the keyword!!!
As far as concern the restaurant, the breakfast was great, with a lot of homemade goodies. In truth, the restaurant was our choise for the most of our meals- the only minor in the island was the food. But, fortunately, the restaurant had great food in quite low price for its quality. Don't forget to have a coctail in the sunset by the pool...one of the best moments in our vacation....Did I say great view????

We stayed at rizes hotel with friends, for Easter holidays. It is a very nice boutique hotel, where the details are playing an sssential role! Everything is done with a lot of care and grate taste! At the brekfast we had the opportunity to taste some very nice specialties of Olga, who is running the hotel with a brilliant, friendly way! She can provide and help you in everything you need! And of course the view either from the rooms or the swimming pool area, is estonished! From left side you have the pitoresque view of the port and from the right side the fantastic view of the chora which is like "hanging" with the white houses on the line of the hill. Romes are very beautifyll, modern, clean and very spacious!
Rizes is situated 5-10 minutes from the port, by car, and very close to some of the best beaches of Serifos! It is a fabulous island and hotel to have unforgetable holidays! Do not hesitate to try it!

Room Tip: All the rooms are very spacious and have fantastic view!

We stayed in 6 hotels on 6 different islands this August and this was was certainly one of my favourites, and for the price certainly the best. It is the epitome of a boutique hotel, and the only real reason we decided to visit Serifos, and very glad that we did. The layout and design feel were excellent. The hotel sits rather starkly on the side of the hill overlooking Livadi, and benefits from a bit of a breeze. We hired a car from the Port which was essential to get around the island. Greeted and looked after by Olga - who is critical to the ethos and running of the hotel - and who was brilliant throughout our stay. We had planned on 2 nights but quickly changed and stayed 3. The rooms (we had apartments) were large, clean and stylish. The Pool is far larger than expected (the Photos on the website do not do it justice). The bar and restaurant food great and the cocktails the best we had in the Cyclades. Breakfast was also the best we had on any island. We loved the Serifos beaches, the Chora and our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone (we have already) and it would be our first port of call if we came back. Only negative comment would be it needs WiFi to reach the rooms.

Room Tip: All seem good - I tried to get a suite with a plunge pool as that would always be a nice bonus

The hotel is very nice. We spent 3 nights there. The view is amazing. The rooms are beautiful.
The breakfast is good. We tried the hotel restaurant, the food was good quality, but the service was very slow.
It is a little bit far from the port, so if you want to have dinner outside you need to have a vehicle. The forst evening we could'nt find a taxi in the port, so we walked back and it is about 20 minutes in a dusty road with no light! So we rented a scooter the next day.
It is very close to 3 beautiful beaches (5 to 10 minutes walk)
The servcie could be improved, the staff is sometimes very slow but people are nice and friendly.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a beautiful view

The view from the cafe in the pool view is amazing.Excellent design of the whole premises. The breakfast is good but not something special. The standard rooms are not very big for their price and their refrigerator is not sufficient for the Greek summer . The rates in high season are extremely high and this happens due to lack of competitors.
