After staying here I was already prepared to give this hotel 5 stars- the location is perfect, close to the port and close to town without actually being in town, the rooms are absolutely charming and clean, full of the character of the island, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and the pool is beyond relaxing with a view to die for. However, after a near crisis for my fiance and I, seeing how the hotel staff came to our aide makes me want to give this hotel 10 stars.
On the day of our checkout we were scheduled to catch a ferry back to Athens because our flight home was the next day. After waiting for 5 hours, our ferry never came due to weather problems, sending me into full blown panic mode since this meant we would miss our flight going home. We went back to the hotel to try to come up with another plan. When we arrived, we explained what happened to Maria, the staff member who was working the front desk at that time, and instead of turning us away because we had already checked out, she went straight to work helping us. She called the port authority to see what happened to the ferry, she called the airport, all the airlines on the island to see if we could book a flight off the island, even our hotel in Athens to call and tell them that we were stuck on the island and wouldn't be there that night. Thankfully we were able to book a flight out the next morning that would still give us time to make our flight home. Maria made sure to set us up in a beautiful room and the next morning when we had to leave at 5am, she was on the phone with multiple taxi companies trying to find a taxi that would operate that early. In the end, everything worked out perfectly and we made all our flights but I can't tell you how grateful we were to Maria for all her help. So many other hotels would have turned us away because we already checked out or simply not cared about our situation but Maria went above and beyond to help us in our time of need and that is something that I will forever be grateful for. Thank you so much Maria and Hotel Olia for your excellent customer service and we hope to stay with you again soon!
