“Good Value for the $$”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2009

This hotel is a good value for what you pay. It is by no means a 5 star hotel, but I would say its a step up from a hostile. I received my own room, which actually had 2 beds and a fridge. The room was roomy and very clean. The bathroom was tiny - like any bathroom I have encountered in greece. I didn't spend much time at all in the room, so I didn't' mind. My room was right in front of the pool and had a little patio with chairs if you wanted to sit out. The owner greeted me as soon as I got out of the cab and showed me to my room and explained where everything was. The hotel was located off a sidestreet and the black beach was within a five minute walk to the beach, bars and restaurants.

The owner met us at the door and showed us to our lovely room, this hotel was clean and perfectly located within a 5 min walk of the bars and resturants and the beautiful beaches. The owner and her husband were lovely and nothing was to much trouble. TIP Beach Bar does lovely food and a great night out on a saturday night. Great Hotel, Great Island.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2009

We had a studio for 5 days in the third week of May and it worked well for us. The hotel is located on a side street which connects to both the main road into Perissa and the beach road which runs along the seafront. It's just a few minutes walk to all the amenities but with empty lots to front and rear is much quieter than hotels either on the main road or on the beach (where there are many bars and nightspots).
The studio was very clean and had the sort of basic functional furnishings you expect in any mediterranean 'pensione' style accomodation. It was light and airy and each room had its own balcony or patio space with a table and 2 chairs. The 'kitchen' was one wall cupboard with dishes in, one base cupboard supporting the sink and 3 drawers with cutlery and utensils etc. There was an under-counter size fridge with ice box (but no ice tray) and a little electric table top hot ring. It was perfectly adequate for our short stay but would present a challenge if you really intended to fully self-cater a longer stay. There are both convenience stores and a supermarket within 2 minutes walk, also a post office, internet cafe and a 24 hour bakery which is to be recommended.
The pool is pleasant, well-maintained and has a childrens' shallow section and a corner with jets (like a Jacuzzi but without heat). There are thatched shade 'umberellas' and sun loungers provided; there is also a poolside bar although it was not open until the last day of our stay as we were relatively early in the season.
The empty lot opposite provides off street parking if you have a rental car (but no shade) and the owners are friendly and helpful without being too much.
Overall this property represents excellent value for money especially for the mature budget traveller who might appreciate a quieter location.
