We have had a fantastic week staying here. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place which was just perfect for us and our older children. The rooms are basic but they were cleaned every day and had everything we needed. Rena and her team are just lovely, so welcoming and tell you to treat the place as your home, Rena even drove us to a pharmacy to get some antihistamines! Dina is a real credit to the team too, never stops working making sure your room is clean and you have everything you need. I wouldn’t recommend this place if you have young children who like entertainment at the pool and evenings but if you want a relaxing week where you can really switch off then this is the place. Can’t wait to come back again.

Brilliant hosts very friendly no lights on stair wells shower powerful but can only shower properly if you hold the shower head in your hand , I absolutely agree you get what you pay for,but negotiating stairs at 60 and 70 plus is non negotiable in darkness I've already tripped and hurt myself

Arrived late .made welcome was given a free shot of ouzo , we stayed in bar area and had a few drinks . Mr Vengass took us to our room we had a studio , which on first expression looked ok but very basic , on further expection we noticed bedding was badly stained ,towels had holes in ., Shower would not stay on hook , kept falling off so bathroom floor was getting flooded , only 2 cups 1 large dinner plate ,2 small plates , 2 bowls , cutlery for 4 people .There was a microwave oven with hob on top but this was right by the patio door to terrace which had a curtain , Toliet didn't look very clean cleaner came in everyday to clean ,was ok but not fantastic , she left dirty cloth on our side the whole place needs updating . If you want basic this it it if you want luxury stay away There were toilets by the bar which looked like that hadn't been cleaned for ages , and there was no hand towels to dry hands for 2 days

Massive thank you to Rena, her son and staff whom went out of their way to help us after we arrived late to the hotel opposite to find it was closed! Luckily they had a room available, we had dinner, drinks, a swim and a very comfortable stay in our time of need. The food was great dished up with plenty of amazing hospitality! Thank you again as you literally saved us and we will look at visiting and staying with you next year.
