We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Grotta the end of Spetember and beginning of October. The hotel was extremely helpful planning our trip months in advance in terms of which islands to visit in what order, when to buy ferry tickets, and activities to plan once on the island. Once we arrived by ferry, we were met at the dock and greeted warmly with a cold drink and fresh baked goods while taking in the spectacular view from the hotel restaurant. The setting is ideal - on a hill overlooking the water and the harbor and the ancient town. It is an easy walk into town for meals, shopping, sightseeing, etc. yet in a quiet spot away from the crowds. It is very easy to get taxis or a bus or to rent a car to go to other areas. The breakfasts are beyond wonderful with the mother's baked goods and mountains of fresh fruits, cheeses, yogurt, etc. Rooms are immaculately clean and tasteful and many rooms have lovely terraces with terrific views. All this pales when one speaks of the owners. This family run hotel could teach hotel management courses to anyone anywhere. They are attentive to individuals' needs to a fault in a warm, completely authentic manner. Hiking trips were suggested, routes printed out for us, transportation secured with other family members, Greek lessons provided, restaurants suggested, the best beaches recommended, where to snorkel pointed out, and on and on. It is like staying with friends who know and love their home and want to share it with you. This is not the most elegant hotel I have stayed in but it can run circles around the service and atmosphere of them all. A true gem!
