Was a little apprehensive about staying here for 8 night as we were 9 adults and 4 children aged 5,7,11 and 14, but no need to worry. This hotel was was excellent for everybody of all ages and was in an excellent location,The receptionists were very kind and helpful, and the restaurant and bar were very good. Eleni, who runs the hotel shop was also very friendly and will even teach you some Greek. The rooms we had were in different areas of the complex. We had 2 family rooms, each had 2 bedrooms and plenty of space, and 3 studios, which were also spacious and were cleaned daily. The studios which are surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees, were in an elevated location, but there is a lift if you dont want to climb up the stairs or walk up the hill. This hotel is mainly used by Greek families, and the restaurant was a little noisy, but had a great atmosphere and everyone was very friendly. No hen or stag parties at the hotel, just couples and families having a good time and a perfect place for children. The pool area was clean and you can walk from the pool to the beach in seconds. Galissas is a small village with a few shops, restaurants and bars. We found the restaurant Savvas to be excellent, also the small sports bar has a couple of Sky Sports channels and a pool table. Syros has lots of lovely beaches and restaurants to explore which are easily reached by bus, costing around 1.70euros each wherever you go. The main town of Hermoupolis is well worth a visit, although it is busy, there is lots to see. In the evening, when it is cooler, you can wander along the narrow streets or port side, or stop for a drink and a bite to eat at one of the many taverns. We reached Syros by flying to Mykonos and taking the ferry the same day. The Dolphin Bay hotel arranged a bus to pick us up at the port for a cost of 30 euros for the 13 of us. On our return journey, we stayed in Mykonos overnight to enable us to get the lunch time flight back and this was a perfect way to end our holiday. We will definitely return to the Dolphin Bay hotel.
