We spent four beautiful days, at the end of a three week holiday, at Grifo. It was the perfect way to relax and get ready to head home and back to work. We were welcomed by one of the daughters of the family. She sat down with us and showed us maps of the island; told us how to get around by bus or cab; made notes of which numbered buses went where. At our request she suggested some moderately priced restaurants which we could walk to.
Our room was comfortable and very nice---a beautiful view of the sea from two sides---with a good sized balcony. We paid a slight supplement to get a good view. It was definitely worth it.
Our first day there we ended up having both lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant. It was very good---lots of choice--and reasonably-priced. The waiters were friendly and helpful.
The public areas and the pool were very nice. The gardens surrounding the hotel and well-maintained. You get a sense that they pay close attention to all the details and make sure that things don't get run down.
Because it sits up off the main road, it was also wonderfully quiet. It seems like most of the hotels on the island sit on, or close to, the main road. We really appreciated the quiet. Even sitting up on the hill, it was easy to walk into town or to one of the large spas nearby. Additionally, they were always willing to get us a ride if we needed it.
Mr. Grifo is a warm and friendly host and makes a point of getting to know his guests. That friendliness also comes from his staff and family members. We certainly plan on going back. It was a wonderful time.
