My husband and I spent 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon in mid-June. It seemed like we were the only people at the hotel for our first night, but we did see one other couple at breakfast on the second day. Overall, it was amazing to a have a gorgeous resort property essentially to ourselves!
We stayed in a standard premier room, which was more like a suite with a kitchenette, desk and large bedroom area. I was a little disappointed that we weren't upgraded given that there wasn't anyone else at the hotel, but our room was more than adequate and you can't fault a hotel for giving you exactly what you pay for (though it would have been nice to be upgraded!) :)
Breakfast was included in the rate and is made to order. My husband and I were a little greedy and ordered a few different things to try, which they did not bat an eye at. The food was very tasty and the service at breakfast and around the pool all day was impeccable (warm, friendly, bringing you menus, waters and whatever you might need without even asking).
The saltwater pool is gigantic and gorgeous. I think that Folegandros is too beautiful to spend much time at the pool, but if you are so inclined it will not disappoint. We also greatly apprciated that management allowed us to stay in our room until just before our 7:30 pm ferry, allowing us to really enjoy our last day before packing up and showering.
The one downside to this hotel is that it is in the port area, while all restaurants are 2 miles away in Chora. The bus runs from Chora to the port at 9 pm and 11 pm, so it's easy to get stranded in town for a while after dinner. I think the hotel could be greatly improved if they offered an hourly shuttle to/from town - the hubby and I walked home from dinner one night to avoid waiting for the bus, and it was a little longer than I would have liked for a post-dinner stroll. As it stands, I might consider staying in town at the Anemomilos Apartments the next time I visit to avoid the post-dinner walk...but if they resolve the transport situation, I would DEFINITELY choose this hotel again!
