Stayed for a week and had the place to ourselves most of the time as it was the very end of the season. Hotel is hidden (our pre-arranged airport transfer couldn't find it as the only clue to it's existence is a couple of stone mill-wheels at the bottom of the drive!) in an olive grove just off the road with unobstructed views out to sea. The rooms are actually semi-detached "houses" which blend so well into the surrounding greenery you hardly notice the others. Chickens, lizards and cats roam free everywhere. The rooms are a clever blend of "rustic" and "modern" and everything "works" although some things better than others (would have liked a slightly more comfy bed). The common areas are well laid out (although lots of steps so perhaps not good for the "oldies") and the whole experience is more like staying in a friends house than a hotel. Yanki the owner - who is the only member of staff who speaks English - could not have been more accommodating, although if the hotel was full I expect he would not be able to give every guest the same level of attention. We had not bothered to hire a car (only thing I would have done differently), as we intended to chill at the hotel most of our stay, and when we said we were thinking of walking down to the sea he gave us a lift as it is a lot further than you imagine (and no pavements!). The food is healthy, the portions hearty and they have a well-stocked wine cellar (although takes a bit of getting used to chilled red wine). Watch out for those pesky mosquitoes though..!
