The island of Patmos is so beautiful, that it makes it hard to focus on a specific hotel, when you stay on this holly place. Anyway, if I had to write about the hotel, I would describe its location as its strongest point. Groikos bay is astonishing. And now about the hotel itself...
The property is new and probably the best on the island, as the only five star. There are actually three wings, the central building with restaurant, bar and lobby, one wing with standard rooms and another with suites and villas. The rooms are large and there is daylight in the bathrooms. The decoration is modern and rather minimal in the lobby area. The restaurant, breakfast-dinner, is very good and prices in both restaurant and bar are normal. I liked the live saxophone music every night at the bar, steps from the tranquil sea. The hotel grounds are built up and the only free places are the parking area and the beach. At the end of the day, facilities are very good and equipment is adequate and gets improved day by day: there was not safe box in the room, but they placed one after requested, there were no umbrellas in the pool area, but they were placed later, there were not enough towels for the beach and we had to wait for a long till we get one, but at the end they ordered and received more etc.
What I really did not like was the service. Beach boy was kind but inadequate, most cleaning staff was rude, some waiters seemed to get really bored with their job and one of the receptionist pretended to smile and help but she never did actually. The worst of all is that when I asked the manager for late check out (because of inconvenient ferry schedules) I was requested to pay extra 50,00 euros. I had stayed in the hotel 9 nights and had paid about 2000 euros....I was really frustrated to hear that I had to pay for late heck out. I would prefer to hear that the hotel is full...
