Certificate of Excellence
Gerofinikas boutique hotel chose Chrisostomos location right outside the village of Kato Petali, a quiet spot with breathtaking views, in order to attend to its visitors. The swimming pool and the balconies overlook the Aegean Sea and Kastro – the historic settlement with a particular architecture that tells off its medieval past – giving the opportunity to guests to gaze for long hours. The whitewashed buildings with the typical ceramic chimneys, the traditional stone walls, the yards with the Sifnian paving stones and the elegant pergolas create an exceptional ambience. It is about hospitality in a comfortable, cozy and homely space. The 12 room and suites of the hotel featuring beds of traditional architecture, simple decoration and soft colours make up an oasis of aesthetics and relaxation. Nothing, though, would be the same without the special care of the owners – a family which “embraces” guests discreetly, yet, with genuine interest. With services ranging from the delicious homemade breakfast to insider’s information on the island, Gerofinikas offers generously a true recreational experience.

Gerofinikas is an amazing gem. Spyros and the staff made our stay on Sifnos above and beyond what we expected. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely pool, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast. The view is incredible as well. We could not recommend staying here more. While we didn’t have a car, we were able to walk around to some great spots and Spyros helped us arrange transportation whenever we needed it. Stay here!

After an amazing week on Milos our next stop was Sifnos and a lovely superior room at this stunning location. The views were outstanding and the sunrises were very special. We appreciated Spyros, his Mom and their helpful team - we enjoyed our stay very much! We walked to Panagia Poulati to swim and hike along the coast which we'll never forget for the beauty and clarity of the water. The walk to Appollonia took us about 15 - 20 mins. There were great restaurants, unique shops and access to Platys Giolos and Vathi beaches by bus - stunning locations!

Three days was not enough at this perfect hotel! We loved the comfy beds from where we could watch the sunrise over the sea. We loved having our own private terrace to catch the morning sun. We loved the absolutely outstanding breakfast served on the terrace overlooking the pool, Kastro and the blue, blue sea, by cheery, helpful and friendly staff. We'd come down, peruse the buffet, and by the time we got back to our table, freshly squeezed orange juice was waiting for us. Perfectly cooked and seasoned eggs and bacon, if requested, followed minutes later. Other treats included brioche French toast and the best croissants ever! I had to be restrained from eating about 10 in one sitting. I certainly did not require lunch on any day I stayed here. We had a glorious day by the pool, another featuring a beautiful walk down to Kastro and up to Apollonia and Artemonas. Apollonia is an easy 10-minute walk for dinner, though make sure you have your phone torch to use for walk back - there's a short stretch of unlit and quite exposed road. One evening we had dinner at Kelari, a traditional family-run Greek restaurant a five-min walk away. In Kastro, we stopped for a glass of Rose and Greek salad at Remezzo, with its wonderful views back across the valley to Gerofinikas. In Artemonas, we loved the Mosaic restaurant for mezze-style dinner. Spiros was kind enough to give us a lift back to Kamares to catch our ferry. This is the perfect, peaceful, comfortable and understated place to completely switch off. Its views of the white and blue-roofed buildings of Sifnos will make you feel like you're staying in a filtered Instagram post, but you're not: it's real!

We had a wonderful stay at Gerofinikas. The staff made us feel at home and were always ready to help us, whatever was needed. If you look for the best view in Sifnos, stop, it's there. The inifinity pool is perfectly overlooking Kastro. You'll also enjoy a wonderful breakfast in the same place. Every morning new local recipes will delight your tastebuds. You'll enjoy freshly cooked eggs and fresh fruit juices. The rooms are nicely decorated with taste, very clean. The ensuite bathroom finishing perfectly the accomodation. Finally the hotel is located in between Apollonia and Kastro, at the heart of Sifnos. With a moped or a car you're no further than 20 minutes from anywhere on the Island. For all that, and once more for the lovely staff, I'll strongly recommend Gerofinikas boutique hotel.
