The hotel staff is really what stands out at this Hotel. We stayed in July 2011 and were coming from Turkey. We did not know that the taxis went on strike while we were traveling in Turkey and had planned on taking a taxi from the ferry terminal to the hotel. When we arrived at the terminal, we were greeted by a hotel employee who had driven his personal car to greet us and take us to the hotel! What a nice surprise!
The hotel setting is incredible - the views couldn't be better! The hotel pool was absolutely perfect for relaxing at and just enjoying the views. They also offered a shuttle which took us to 2 beaches (both amazing!) and their location in Kokkari town (perfect for walking around). The only negative was the long uphill walk back after dinner - but the view was so amazing that it was worth it!
A large breakfast buffet is set up each day - lots to choose from and the breakfast room overlooks the view - a great way to start the day! We were leaving very early (4AM) on our last day and they still insisted on setting up a breakfast for us before we left! We also enjoyed lunch on the terrace one day - the food was great and the view couldn't be beat!
Our room also had the view - which I could not get enough of! The room was clean and simple - very bright. It's definitely worth the upgraded room for the view!
We had another "wow" with the staff on our last day. The taxi strike had stopped so we were planning on taking a taxi to the airport the next morning (early 7AM flight). When we returned from the beach, the Front Desk Agent informed us that the taxis were going on strike again the next day - I quickly panicked! She told me to go shower and relax and she would take care of everything. She then spent the next hour on the phone to every rental car company in town to find a rental car for us - she did this all with a broken foot propped up! When we came down, she had everything set up for us, all we had to do was walk in to town to pick-up the car. She was an absolute savior!
I can't say enough good things about this hotel and their staff - I can't wait to return!
