“Coming back as soon as we can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Lovely hotel sitting up on the hill overlooking the fort and the bay. Owners very hands-on and involved, which means they have a great staff who genuinely appear to care. Clean fresh rooms, well appointed bathrooms, magnificent pool. Really good and lavish breakfast with long open hours. Poolside dining with only a small menu, but very well presented. Would have liked a bit more "greek" on the menu, but that's a tiny criticism!

Room Tip: water view is essential - it is worth it!

Nice hotel, spacious rooms with very nice view. The best thing is its location between Kapsali and Chora, which is very convenient. Breakfast is good but nothing special. good service. Reasonable price. In the site, thoughj, rooms look better, more modern, more spacious with better decoration.

We stayed here for 4 nights in the beginning of July. The hotel exceeded our expectations by far. Rooms were super clean and adequately airconditioned. There was a large fridge filled with water bottles daily. The bathroom was clean and large. The balcony was superb.

Breakfast is very high quality. Orange juice, milk, coffee, eggs, ham, cheese sausage, home made jams (thanks vanessa), local honey, fresh bread, fruits, cereal, fresh yogurt. what else can one ask for.

The pool is very clean and not overly chlorinated. Pleasure to swim in. Great view of the island and the castle nearby. Clean large towels are provided, music is very discrete, and the restaurant nearby brings free bottled water upon sitting.

The restaurant/cafe is very modern. Great views, nice food, video wall, pool table, playstation for the kids, and very nice old pictures of the island and old documents. There is also a playground for kids.

Adequate parking, and free internet in the lobby. The views from the hotel are incredible!!!

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation, we were utterly impressed by the level of service, the politeness of all the staff. Smooth operation.

One of the best vacations I had ever had. The Hotel is at a fantastic spot with great view, very clean with a great minimal Greek island style decoration, the personnel very polite, pleasant and helpful.
The owners are very pleasant and assisted us in every possible way even when we were still looking for a hotel to book.
Even there are many things to see in the island it was very pleasant to stay from time to time and relax in the hotel, especially by the swimming pool with this lovely lounge music and enjoy an afternoon swim in the pool.
Would definitely recommend it and hopefully revisit it again in the future.
