The hosts are really nice and welcoming people, and the location is great, as long as your priority is to be close to a beach. But that's about it. Based on the reviews, guests here have vastly different experiences; mine was abysmal. First off, i asked for a transfer from

Dear Mr Viktor, We thank you for your review and for mentioning us as welcoming . On the other hand I fell a little confuse about the other comments and to start with the choice of your transportation from the port I recall an arrival after midnight(night shift) a taxi fare from the port is 35 Euros in August( high season) extra for the reservation and extra for the night shift. we sent you a private shuttle for the same price and no extra for the night shift or the reservation, so when you tell me that by asking around some car rental agency told you 20 Euros for a transfer to the port, please be assure that there was nothing legal about it. Secondly for the choice of your room it is solely your choice when booking on-line you can see the type of the room the size and the photos of the exact room you choose, so we cannot expect the room to grow bigger between the time of booking and the check in. sorry I forgot to mention that you choose a family room(2 adults+2 kids) for 1 person so it can explain the price you paid in high season in Santorini. For the tap water as there are no connection yet in our area, the water is brought to us by tank trucks and we do mention it is not drinkable, that is why we offer a free 1,5 liter of water at your arrival. For the parking it is the most hilarious of your comments because our parking is 3,000 square meters and because I have only 11 rooms for rent in total I think this leave you with a lots of space to park your vehicles which was I think a moped. We wish you a nice continuation in your traveling. Cordially, Marylin

Fantastic family run hotel. Just minutes from the beautiful beach and resturants. Defiantly I would return to the best island. Rooms well equipped very clean. Lovely view from my terrace. Quad bikes are a very popular way to get around the island too.

We choose this hotel because of the distance from the sea (50m) and the price. We went there and we found our room with the worst toilet ever, sewage odor all the day, you can not fit in the shower because of the height (1,70 from the plate of the shower), the tent was
