We stayed to this hotel for one week in the end of July and we enjoied it very much.
The Hotel is clean, located on a heal next to the sea. The access to the rooms in not difficult, as there are elevators from a level to the next one, so you don't need to use the stairs if you don't want to. The beach next to the hotel was well organized and the sea was great. It's a very nice place for people who enjoy sweeming in the sea, although the pool was OK, as well.
The staff of the hotel is friendly, especialy the restaurant's manager who was always welcoming us at the breackfast with a large smile and some friendly and polite comments. The food is good and the only one problem is that the restaurant is not so large and sometimes you need to wait in a raw in order to take your food. But this happens only if you go late for your breakfast (the restaurant is opened until 10,30 a.m.). The good part is that they do not close it without notice, the manager informs all the turists who are still eating that time that they are going to close and, in case you need someting else, you can go to take it and they are waiting for you.
We didn't have dinner at the hotel, but we could find several nice taverns arround. You can find any kind of greek food near the hotel: fish and sea food, cooked foods, grill etc. Also, the city of Syros is quite close and you can go there by bus (every hour) or by taxi. We were going by taxi and the price is about 10-12 euros.
The hotel has live greek music at the pool bar every night except for Monday. There are 2 singers, a girl and a man and both of them have great voices. Their repertory is very nice and we enjoied it a lot. We have been to the show 3 times duing the week we have spent there and we are gratfull for it, because there is no other place in Syros with live music every night (live music there is also at Caldera, just backside of Dolphin Bay Hotel, but only 3 nights per week, and not as nice as at Dolphin). The staff at bar was very friendly and prompt and they were making you feeling very nice. The cocktails are good, but too expensive.
In general, I can say that we had very nice vacations at this hotel. We will definitely go back there during the next years.
