I chose this hotel largely because of the positive reviews and I'm pleased to say that they are well deserved. The pool and bar area as well as the views are as good as the pictures suggest. What was also nice was that they were very private and only used by guests. The service was genuinely warm and attentive. What I liked most was that they do have 5 star touches such as turning down or servicing your room while they know you're in the bar but they are also much friendlier than a 5 star hotel - a rare balance. The food restaurant food was the best I ate in Greece and I disagree with some reviews that it is expensive. Go expecting a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere with beautiful views and you won't be disappointed. The interiors aren't of the standard of a 5 star hotel in some other countries but they are fine - think nice holiday house.
