We booked the hotel and later on seen some negative reviews here on trip advisor regarding the room booking. We emailed the hotel got very quick response from Eva & George, and decided to go for it. We were very happy with our decision! Eva arranged airport transportation free of charge for all 4 of us, and for BOTH ways! The rooms are large, comfortable and modern with fully equipped kitchen. The hotel and rooms are very clean -- rooms are cleaned daily. The pool is very nice with a gorgeous view of the mountains, IMHO much nicer than that of near by hotels. The hotel is at a great location - just 2 minutes walk from the beach, 2 min walk to the main road (with public transportation, etc), 5-10 min walk from the busiest area of Malya (forgot the name of the street but full of restaurants, pubs, etc) -- yet very quiet. We never took a Taxi in the week we stayed there --- there was no need....
The hospitality of Eva, Elllison & George is exceptional! They were very patient, gave us numerous good tips and recommendations (what to do, where to eat, how to get to other parts of the island, etc), and nothing was too difficult for them.
Thank you Eva, Ellison and George for a wonderful stay - we will definitely come again!
