This was my first visit to The Mistral - but it certainly won't be my last! From the time we were met by the owner Vasillis at the airport we were made very welcome. The family are passionate about their island and do their best to advise where you should visit - according to your interests. The staff were superb - friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. My room was lovely, at the back, one of the newer buildings - it has a king-size bed, a fridge, balcony with chairs & table, kettle, iron, ironing board and hair dryer, so you didn't have to take any electrical stuff! My bathroom was large, with a corner bath, and a separate shower cubicle, basin and WC. Complimentary Olivia toiletries were provided. I found the food very good - plenty of variety in the evening, and second helpings if you wanted them! If you had a special dietary need you only had to warn the Hotel in advance and they would provide an alternative dish if, say, you couldn't eat pork. Jugs of local wine were provided at dinner. This is a 3-star hotel that provides 5-star ambience! Many of the guests were returnees - some as many as 5 - 6 times, which I feel speaks for itself! I will definitely return, if not next year then in 2011.
