Just returned from a lovely 2 week holiday in this wonderful hotel. Arrived late due to flight delays, but were met by friendly staff who welcomed us with a drink, and told us to relax whilst we filled in our registration forms. We we quickly shown to our room, ours was on the first floor, basic room, but beautifully decorated, had a small balcony, which just fitted two chairs, and overlooked the pool in the ccurtyard. Room had jacuzzi bath, tv, and safety deposit box (free), and a mini bar. No tea/coffee making facilities, so if you want this, take your own.
Breakfast was served from 8 until 10 30,, buffet style, beautifully laid out in a spacious breakfast room. There was lots on offer, from cereals, fresh and dried fruit, greek yoghurt and honey, cold meats and cheese, varieties of bread for toast, beautiful pastries, and boiled eggs (or fried eggs or omelettes and bacon on alternative days). Lots of lovely coffee and many varieties of tea were also available. Supplies topped up frequently by the ever smiling Crisoula.
Everything about this hotel makes for a relaxing holiday. The poolside courtyard gets the sun in the afternoon, and is a wonderful place to relax with your book, chat to fellow holiday makers, or just chill..
Spent most of our evenings in the bar/restaurant, served by the lovely Cristos,, who got to know everyone's name, and was always cheerful, even when we kept him up to the early hours chatting in our little groups.
The restaurant attached to the hotel serves lovely food, favourite being Lamb Mitato, which was lamb in a honey and yoghurt sauce. My husband enjoyed almost all their fish dishes, which are considerably cheaper here than you would pay in the restaurants alongside the harbour. If you eat here at lunchtime, quests receive a 20 percent discount.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, you were always greeted with a cheerful good morning from everyone from management to maids.
We were sorry to leave and will be returning next year
