“Good hotel built in a perfect spot”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A very good hotel with the best matresses (I am pregnant so I know what I am saying). The breakfast was quite basic and the bees surrounding your plate are a problem but you get awarded by the view from your big terrace.

Room Tip: If you are a family with more than one child ask for the bungalows. If you are a couple and you dont...

This is a recently (partially) renovated hotel. The rooms are new and tastefully decorated, with great view of Vathy. Nice big balcony to relax. The location was very convenient for us as we like to walk. It took us about 20-30 minutes to walk to the center of Vathy, it was a nice walk. About halfway to the center are a couple of bars, where you can have a drink on the way back to the hotel in the evening.
There are a couple of beaches very close with the car, Filiatro, Sarakiniko, Skinos, within 10 minutes you are there. This is convenient if you don’t feel like taking a long drive to go to the beach.
Towels were changed every day. Our room was on the top floor. We had to drive around the block/up the hill to park in front of our room. We had to go down a lot of stairs in order to go to the pool (and up again to return to the room). The alternative was to drive from the parking space in front of our room to the parking lot near the pool at the main road.
We slept very good, nice breeze, didn't have to turn on the A/C even though it was quite hot during the day.
The breakfast was in buffet style, by the pool. Very basic breakfast (bread, yoghurt, packaged honey, jam and hazelnut spread, ham, cheese, corn flakes, hard boiled eggs etc), but it was enough to get the day started. I would have preferred more local products, homemade things and fresh fruit.
The swimming pool was nice, with natural shade from the plants. Unfortunately the plastic sunbeds were not in the best condition and some might need replacing.
Some of the surrounding areas need renovation (tennis court, main entrance, gardens etc). Alhtough the bathroom is mostly renovated, a new water faucet and shower head would be much better. The owner did mention they will be doing some works during the winter time, so I am anxious to see what it will look like next year.

Room Tip: If you have trouble walking ask for a room with easy access, it's a long walk up.

We were there in July 2011 for four nights.
The views from the rooms in the hill are extremely nice. Rooms are clean enough, with good terraces, ideal to have breakfast, which is not included. The complex has, also, a good swimming pool and close to it a very colourful bar.
Unfortunately, the tennis court is in pretty bad condition. Staff was nice but nothing extrordinary. Prices are fine.
It is not so far from the city centre, but, on the other hand, is quiet just because of that. I mean, you can have fun in the city centre night life and then return for good rest.

Room Tip: Look for those room in the hill, if you do not mind to use a long staircase.Excellent views.
