They were welcoming and gave of them self! You really felt like they gave you their heart, and once you have visited Sotiris you want to come back! I love that they made me feel welcom and safe. In Hellas(as they say) there are bugs, but I didn't see anyone at Sotiris!

We just got back from our 6th stay in 10 years and once again felt like home. I want to try to write as honest review as possible and not be biased due to my friendship with the family... so here goes. Set near picturesque bays, beaches and wonderful views. the apartments are always maintain to highest level. The apartments are basic but have all furnishings needed and very clean, comfy beds, air conditioning with a always freshly decorated each season. The Pool and Pool bar are lovely and very clean too and the restaurant has wide range of food and drinks. Tony's Milk shakes are to die for. There are normally enough sunbeds to accommodate every one but a few more would not go a miss. There is a child pool to. The beaches are all local and have a choice of 5 within 2 miles of hotel one walkable. Yes it is close to airport and every now and then plane come over - I have never found a problem but sick of people using this to complain, it is a tiny airport hardly Heathrow and the plane are seldom at most. The bar has Sports on all the time for the guys which is awesome for the Motorsport and Football fans. But what sets this apart from every other hotel I have stay in across the globe is the personal touches from Maria, Sotiris, Tony, Terry, George, Maria and Lucas too. They make you feel like part of the family and will do whatever it takes to make your holiday the best - from helping with tours, car hire, local advise and even finding a children dentist on a Sunday for my daughter when she needed one this year. In closing visit don't visit it's up to you - but you will be missing out - not that I care I like the fact this is Greece's little known secret. A truly wonderful place run my a wonderful family I am honoured to call friends.

Room Tip: Top floor face pool or sea best.

Stayed here with my partner for a week and loved it from the moment we arrived. Lovely warm family owners who were always around and would do anything for their guests. Room was simply finished, immaculately clean, large size, and very comfortable. Had a balcony with a sea view which was glorious for breakfast. Had lunch and some dinners in the hotel restaurant. Maria's cooking is superb. Look out for the moussaka - divine! 5 minute easy walk to the beach which was never busy. Some lovely restaurants in vicinity. Head down road to beach and bear left and you will come to them. Lovely authentic Greek food and atmosphere.
Close to airport which is great for transfers. You aren't bothered at all by any plane noises, indeed, it's entertaining seeing them go past. There aren't planes every day, they are during the day and they are few and far between.
We loved this place and have vowed that we will definitely be returning, sooner rather than later, hopefully!

Room Tip: All rooms have either sea or pool view.

Just got back from 2 weeks here. Great relaxing time. Tony & Terry are great guys and will help you with anything from car rental to booking a taxi. Maria is such a lovely lady and George is a great guy as well. Svoranata is a very quiet place, so I would suggest getting a car for at least part of your holiday. The Island is very beautiful and easy to get around. The local beach is 5 or 10 mins stroll away. We also got a taxi to Argostolli for an evening out which cost 15€ each way. The food at Sotiris is vey good and also at the Astra Hotel which is 10 minutes walk. We booked a car from Greekstones which is opposite the Astra and next door to the Supermarket.

Visited Sotiris studios 2 times this summer and are going back in august for a 3 rd stay. Very friendly and service minded family runs this place. They will help you with all your request and make your vacation as nice and relaxing as can be:-) The restaurant serves VERY nice Greek food and the pool bar is open from morning to late evening. FANTASTIC place to visit!

Being 5 minutes drive from the Airport enables you to drop straight into the holiday mood, don't book an expensive transfer as the taxis are plentiful and approx €12/€15... I can only add to the great reviews given to the Sotiris Studios, Tony & Terry (sons), George (dad), Maria (mum), couldn't do enough for us, attentive, yet not over fussy, made for a great atmosphere around the place. We hired a car from "GreekStones"..(based at the local shop/supermarket) turn right at the end of the road and walk 5 mins max...€150 Euros for 5 days all insurances inclusive. What a lovely company to deal with. Visit, Assos, Fiscardo, Sami, Myrtos Beach,....test of nerves some of the roads !!! We really enjoyed the South coast of the Island, not overcrowded and wonderful Tavernas, Katelios having 2 of the best examples Fresh Fish options daily !!! sea to plate !!!!!

Room Tip: We asked for Sea View, which put us in the older type of Studio if you want one of the newer type as...

If your idea of the perfect holiday is one where you can totally relax by the pool or on a nearby beach then these family run studios & apartments are for you.The accommodation is situated in pretty gardens approximately a few minutes from the wonderful blue flag Ammes beachThe cost of two loungers and umbrella is 6 euros.The family who own sotiris studios really look after you and they,along with a few staff work very hard from the young lady, who early in the day waters the flowers ,cleans the windows and serves in the on site taverna to the guy who comes every evening to clean the pool....they all work extremely hard.I have to mention Tony & Terry also who along with their mum & dad,Maria & George ensure you have a good holiday.The accommodation has a small shop where you can get the basics so no need to struggle with packs of water.Fresh bread is delivered daily at 8.00am but lovely breakfasts are served in the on site taverna,also lunches and evening meals with a superb daily "special"....the stifado my husband declared was the best he had ever tasted in the twenty odd years we have been coming to Greece.There are few other tavernas in the resort,two on the beach road and a few others towards the centre of the villageAlso slightly off the beaten track is a brilliant one called Fois.If you are not a keen walker then its advisable to hire a car.We hired one from Greekstones where a very helpful young lady pointed out places of interest for us to visit.It is well worth getting one to visit Fiscardo,Argistoli,Sami,Lourdes plus famous Myrtos beach and also the numerous Greek villages dotted around the island. A wonderful island and a lucky find in Svoronata.

Room Tip: High floor rooms have the best sea views
