The hotel is simply lovely, very cosy, extremely clean and the staff is friendly and willing to help. It's also very close to the beach, almost in the centre of the village and the bus station to the capital is 300 m away. In the centre there are quite many delicious places to eat or pubs to hang out. Breakfast and dinner are very good, although they lack some variety. But everything that is actually on offer is delicious.

Very lovely and friendly staff! Cosy and peaceful hotel. Comfortable beds, even airplane noise did not disturb (airport is near), I slept like a child. very delicious dinner. Breakfast is mostly the same every morning, but if you stay for a week, its okay, because there an assortment. And coffee is good. The village itself is small and there is not much activity, but always possibility rent a car and make a trip to the rest of the island. Or drive by bus.

We arrived at the hotel after approx. 15 minutes of travel by bus from the airport which for us was great as we travelled with our 1 and a half year old son.The hotel is rather small but the room was quite spacious and with a nice balcony view towards the sea.Air conditioner was helpful in most days as temperatures were high in the afternoon. A 5 min walk through an alley in the back of the hotel took us to the beach.Even though the beach had no sunbeds or bars, it suited us as we received a free umbrella from the hotel and we could enjoy staying there with our son playing freely in the sand which was quite clean. The food at the hotel was good but not very diversified which I think was the only minus in our opinion.The hotel staff was also great,Eleni is a great host!

It is a small hotel, with all the benefits of it. You feel at home at once. We had a large clean room with excellent beds and a large wardrobe. The beach is nearby. The hotel has its own swimming pool where you can relax and have a drink from the pool bar. The welcome is warm, the staff is amazing - always helpful and friendly and making you feel comfortable. We had a very nice stay and a great holiday!
