We stayed here the first week in September. It was fab and we had a great time. Pela Mare is on the hillside so the views are incredible, it's also out of the way from noisy 18-30 hotels and loud tavernas so is fairly peaceful too. Yes, there is a steep 5 min walk down in to town and the beach but it's doable and not even a consideration if you have a car.
Despina and Nico are friendly and keep the place beautifully clean and the food in the bar is delicious.
You would be crazy to miss out on this little gem. You can always rev your holiday up but finding somewhere calm and pleasant at all times is damn near impossible these days.
I would like to add that if any reviews you have read of this place that say mountain views, yes it is on a mountain side but ALL rooms face the ocean, the mountain is at the back!
