I am writing this at 3.30am because of the disco raging down the street, second night in a row - so much for sleepy Amorgos!! Sleepy in the day perhaps. This just tops off a run of disappointments. I am a 2 star traveller and do not ask for too much, but have had 2 rooms here and disappointed with both.
Downstairs garden room had a shower with a hole in the hob to let the water out or in, I couldn't decide which. Room floods because shower curtain stops 6 inches short of the shower hob. No internet access downstairs. Tiny room ok for one perhaps but not two. Does have a fridge.
Upstairs studio with view purported to be double/twin in Booking.com ended up being twin with view of rear garden and mountain at back and baking in summer sun all day, rather than view of the town and water with a breeze and shade (available for the double bed only). There is nothing to put your suitcases on in the room so it's lift it on and off the bed because there's no floor space either. Again the bathroom floods when you have a shower and the hand held shower is definitely hand held - if you put it in the holder on the wall it shoots straight across at the opposite wall, which happens to be above my head! It is confined with windows and doors, which when open make it impossible to walk uninjured through the room. Internet access upstairs is excellent, though and aircon works well..
And then there's the disco!! Starts late and goes all night!
Sofia and her family are lovely, but there are better places to stay - if you're looking for the beach, do yourself a favour and stay closer to Aegiali - the most beautiful beach - but you'll need a car or bike.
