“Great Hotel with great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We went to Chios in October so there were not many people for holiday. We got to Chios at 6.30 am in the morning, but the hotel staff allow us to check in at 7 am and they even give us the breakfast for that day.
We stayed in a room for 4. The room was big with good on the sea. It was equiped with real kitchen not kichenette (microwave, oven, and ceramic stove, coffee maker, kitchen utensils) ideal for a very long stay.
The swimming pool has a good size with pool for kids too.
Unfortunately there was no wifi connection through the room but internet is possible via LAN.
In conclusion we enjoyed our sttay in sea view hotel in chios.

Ioannis and his staff (anastasia, Maria and all the others whose name I didn't catch) run an excellent hotel. Nothing is a problem for them. Lovely to see everyone so helpful. The bar and restaurant food is terrific (compliments to the chef)! We came across from Cesme on the ferry for a three stay in Chios. This is a real relaxing location. The pool is lovely and the gym and spa are lovely too. Our bedroom (123) was very spacious overlooking the pool and sea. The hotel stocks some delicious Greek wines. Breakfast is lovely with everything you could possibly want available. We will be back again! Well done Ioannis and all the staff

I just came from a week long stay at Sea View Resorts and Spa and would recommend it to ahyone looking for a first class accommodation on the island of Chios. First, Karfas is ideally situated to visit the island. It is a beautiful sandy beach with shallow waters and numerous cafes and tavernas lining it. Karfas is close to town and also accessible by bus if you have not rented a car. There is a mini market, tourist information office, ATM machine, post box and bus stop all within a few minutes from the hotel on foot. A 3 minute walk to the beach, the Resort is situated on a slight hill overlooking the sea. The facility has a spa (which I did not check out), a nice pool and child's pool, a pool deck with outdoor bar and two restaurants. The rooftop restaurant provides a stunning view of Karfas and also has good food at reasonable prices. Certain nights have specials. I think Friday night is Greek night and it is a buffet for 15 euros. Breakfast, which was included in my roomnight, was an expansive buffet in which a person could have anything from yogurt, to Greek specialities (spanikopita, tsiropita, for example) to pancakes and cereal. My room was a large studio with two single beds and I think a pull out couch. It had a kitchenette and bath as well. The room was well appointed, clean and modern. There was an outdoor area to sit that had a sea view. What makes Sea View a place to remember and come back to is the manager, Ioannis, and his staff. Each person was dedicated to providing personal attention. They were friendly, warm and caring. I enjoyed my time in Karfas so much because of this welcome.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 413. I might have liked staying ina room overlooking the pool and ocean. Not sure...

I could go on about how beautiful this property is, how great the breakfasts and dinners were, and the quick walk to Karfas beach, but the real highlight here is the staff at Sea View. The employees were friendly, helpful, and a joy to interact with. They went above and beyond to ensure that our stay here was as enjoyable as possible (they succeeded in this effort!). The massages were amazing, the dinner service crew were extremely helpful, and the manager was always available for questions and to be of assistance ... He was a a saint and the paragon of great service. We made some great connections with the staff at Sea View, and will recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in Greece.

Our group had the pleasure of staying at the Sea View for 4 nights in July 2012. We had three rooms in varying sizes and locations. Our family had a huge triple room that was equipped with a kitchenette and cool loft where our 12 year-old slept. Because of the high ceilings and size of the room, we had two air conditioning units, which was welcome because it was very hot on Chios.

The rooms have rolling metal shades to keep out the sun, which is useful if you're staying during the summer. Rooms were incredibly clean and the furnishings were in very good shape. We never did figure out how to access satellite TV, but there are many cable channels in a variety of languages. Most of the rooms have wi-fi, but it helps to be located close to the office. We could not get internet access in our room, even with a cable.

Breakfast here is fantastic. There is a large variety of hot and cold items, many of which are proudly labled as local (honey, cheese, eggs, etc.). It's best to arrive somewhat early, as sometimes there's not much selection later in the morning. There are many restaurants in Karfas town, so we did not have dinner at the hotel. I never did use the pool area or the spa, but they looked very nice.

Our room was very quiet at night, but we were down hill from the main part of the hotel. I imagine it can be noisy if there is a wedding or party on site. We nad no such problems, thankfully.

Sea View is very close to Karfas beach, which is in a lovely, sandy bay. The water is rather shallow, so it's safe for swimmers and non-swimmers alike. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented for a fee. Just find a spot and wait for the incredibly tan man who manages every chair and umbrella on the beach. It's well worth it to rent an umbrella in summer, since it can get very hot, even with the wind blowing.

Karfas is a lovely town. There's very little shopping, but there many bars and restaurants. If I'm ever lucky enough to come back here, I'd stay at Sea View again.

We stayed 4 nights May/June 2012. They went all out to help us in every way. They don't know the meaning of the word no. Want towels for the beach? -- sure, here's 4 of them!
The hotel is very pretty. The rooms were very large. The breakfast (included) was great. We loved the pool too. Best of all, the restaurant was terrific and we ate there every night because the food on Chios is far below typical Greek standards. I later heard there was a nice alternative in Karfas, but the chef at the hotel is excellent and we were happy to support such a nice group of people. The wine list is great -- 50% reduction on booze prior to 9PM for hotel guests! Karfas turned out to be a great central location to tour the island. Chios is a well-kept secret -- don't tell anyone! The hotel isn't on the beach, but you can walk to it from there. We liked the black beach the best, it's extraordinary.
