I booked this hotel from hotels.com. One day before I went to the island I called the hotel but there was no answer.
When I arrived at the hotel there was noone at the reception. I shouted loud and long and a cleanin lady arrived. She did not speak in Enlish. Luckily I had a Greek friend with me and she talked to her. The cleaning lady told that they were opening on that day (18th April Friday - 1 day before Easter). It was 11:45 noon time.
Then I went to the hotel where my friend was staying (Pearl Bay) which was next door. I called hotels.com and the call center guy told me that he would call the hotel. He did but he could not reach any one either. Then he transferred my call to the main call center in America. The guy in America told me that he would call the hotel too. And when ge called, the receptionist had just arrived and answered the phone. And told him that they were open. It was 12:10 noon time.
The receptionist gave me the key, I checked the room. It looked ready. In the meantine the call center guy was listening to our conversation and he told me that it sounded everything was ok and he hung up.
I booked (and actually paid) for a double kingsize bed room. But the room had twin beds. When I asked for a kingsize room, the receptionist told me that only seaview rooms had double bedroom and she told me that she could not give them to me because she sold them to other customers. Since my wife and I were so tired I did not fight any longer and went to the room.
It was cold inside and air condition was not working. Not surprisingly there was not hot water too. When I talked to the receptionist, she told me that a techician would arrive at the hotel by the evening.
So we had no air condition and we had no hot water till the evening (6 at night).
The next day (saturday), we had a nice breakfest, because there was no other guests. But on Sunday morning it was very crowded and there was only two personel (one of them was the receptionist) who were frustrated. By the time we started our breakfest (10:15) they were out of cheese.
Other than my comments above, I agree with many things written in previous comments. Nice location, small but cozy pool. Nize view of mountains and a small garden from the balconies.
But they should not have welcomed us in such a way that would leave unpleasent memories about our two night stay.
