We loved our 2 weeks on the Pelion Peninsula staying at Pounda Paou. We do not usually buy package holidays and for this reason will probably not return due to our own reservations and prejudices about this kind of holiday being confirmed. However, all that apart, this hotel has a glorious setting and our room was perfectly adequate (room 11). We did not use the a/c much at all - had lots of air and light in our room. The service was very good, and friendly, and the food perfectly adequate. There is a feeling here that the hotel are happy for people to explore and do what they will (within reason of course) in the grounds and hotel; it is easy to relax and feel at home. We met some lovely people whilst there too.
On the downside - There is a dire lack of information in all areas at the hotel - eg, no info about the local area, no info about the hotel menus so very difficult to plan where to eat.
Not all the rooms are so open and light and others struggled to feel cool and comfortable.
