Firstly, in terms of value for money you couldn't argue with Amelie Hotel, and it does have a lot going for it, however there were some downsides. Below I have tried to set out positives and negatives to provide a fair review.
Positives: very nice surroundings in traditional blue and white colours. Nice (small) pool and pool bar. Rooms were very clean and had nice table and chairs outside. Rooms also had a fridge which was great for water and drinks, and air con which was invaluable in the heat. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is fairly well located, a short walk from the beach area, and restaurants etc.
Negatives: the bathroom was our biggest issue. Amelie has "wet room" style bathrooms which is fine, however our bathroom was so small you could have taken a shower whilst sitting on the toilet and washing your hands all at the same time. I have never seen a bathroom so small, it was more like a toilet with a shower mounted on the wall. Room lacked some storage space, although not a big issue. Fridge as very noisy, we had to unplug it overnight as the noise was so loud. Hotel advises safe boxes however these are in reception, and there are not enough for every room in the hotel. We had to wait a day for another guest to leave before we could have one, meaning we were keeping all valuables in our room. Breakfast was also pretty minimal and the same every day. After 5 days we were definitely in need of a change.
If you are looking for good value in Perissa this is a great place, however do be aware of the points above. We had a nice stay and would recommend this place if value for money is a priority (and you don't mind the small bathroom) but if we were to return to Perissa we would probably try somewhere different.
