Our stay at the Olive Bay Hotel could not have been better. Nothing disappointed ! A perfect location to explore the island from and a lovely room to return to at the end of the day. The balcony had amazing views over the bay looking out to Sami and an idyllic small beach was only a few yards away. Lovely... More

The Olive Bay Hotel was the perfect place to come home to at the end of every day! It is in a wonderful location, just steps away from a pretty, pebbly beach with crystal clear water. Shops, restaurants, market, and atm are all within walking distance, and the famous Myrtos beach is only a 15 minute drive. The view from... More

They supplied us with a variety of food in the kitchenette, so that we could make breakfast and have snacks during the day. That was such a treat! The only negative we had was that there was some boiler... More

The room was cleaned every day and had everything required for a very pleasant, relaxing stay.

Searching for an overnight stop in Agia Efimia, and lucky to find a room here. Hotel is just on the edge of the village, and rooms overlook the bay across to Sami, with a pretty balcony.

Wonderfully friendly receptionist and a room with a sea view was perfect for our one-night stay. Tiny pebble beach opposite was lovely for an evening swim and we enjoyed our stroll around the harbour. Free iced water, tea and coffee in reception and although no breakfast was provided, our studio room had a well-equipped kitchenette.
