We keep returning, so it must be good!
This is a small hotel with a big welcome and lovely, helpful and friendly staff. Immaculately clean and very spacious for it's limited guests who tend to be couples in the main.
So well placed, only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Sissi yet close to the scenic mountainous backdrop. It's a peaceful location and if you're looking for relaxation you will certainly get it here. The best beaches are also very close by; Bufos beach being the closest and only a 5 minute walk to its waters edge. This is a stoney beach and does not offer the best swimming conditions but plenty of sun beds. However, if you don't mind a short climb over rocks, there is a beautiful sandy crescent a further 5 minutes away, perfect for paddling, swimming and sun bathing.
The rooms are arranged in 3 units; the main hotel and 2 separate blocks to the rear. To be perfectly honest, I don't think anyone could fault any room or its position. The rooms are all individually dressed with a contemporary feel; lots of dark wood, beautiful lamps and a chaise lounge or sofa. There's plenty of space and we have always opted for a queen sized bed over the twin bed option; an unusual option in Greece! The bathrooms are large too having a bath with a good shower over and there's never been a shortage of hot water. Sheets and towels are changed every other day. Each room has its own private balcony with sliding glass door and a louvre door outside to keep out the heat of the day. There is plenty of wardrobe space, a mini bar, safe and air conditioning.
The good thing about this hotel is there's only 35 rooms but plenty of communal space which means there's always room around the more than adequate good sized pool and plenty of sunbeds too. If you prefer, there's another pool around the side of the hotel offering a more private experience, overlooking the perfectly manicured garden.
We always upgrade at a an exceptionally good price to half board. The dining room is well set out with folded glass doors which are opened to the outside seating area, giving you a choice of eating in the restaurant or 'al fresco' if you prefer. The same contemporary furnishings make this a place you want to linger over your meal. There is a fantastic array of choice for breakfast and a good selection for dinner, both of which are self service. It states when booking there's a dress code for the evening (no shorts or t-shirts) which some guests fail to follow; it would make the experience so much nicer if everyone was reminded and adhered to this.
The bar is open 24 hours and you can order a nice lunch here. There is indoor and outdoor seating around two sides of this bar.
It is worth mentioning that this hotel offers self catering facilities across the road and guests have full use of the pool, bar and restaurant. Whilst we have always had a quiet and peaceful experience, we have only visited in the months of June and September; it may not be as quite during the main holiday period.
