We were looking for a comfortable and home-like place where we could relax with friends while soaking in the beautiful caldera and endless sea from atop the island. Annio fit the bill well. Although it it not a luxurious 5 star resort, it offers a quiet place to enjoy the sunset, sunrise, and amazing view.
Here are the positives:
•We had the best views in the world from our own front terrace.
•The Caldera at sunset and sunrise is breathtaking.
•It was close to a market, taverna with a view, and little walking road that goes across the top of the island with the caldera.
•Our hosts were very accommodating; Katerina was very graceous; her father made us delicious Greek coffee every morning. She speaks fairly fluent English; he speaks very little, if any. Katerina was very helpful arranging help to bring our luggage up the stairs and have a cab bring us to the boat.
•The location was close to bus stops or car rental places and restaurants.
•The bed was extremely comfortable, and we slept very well.
•If Katerina saw we needed or wanted anything, she made sure we had it. We didn't need to ask.
Things that could improve the hotel and increase visitors:
•It would have been great to bask in the sun next to a pool. An idea would be for the owners to make arrangements with one of their neighbors (for a per person usage fee) to allow their guests to have access to a pool at an adjacent property - could help everyone.
•While we were there the internet wasn't working, but we were able to use the one from the taverna that was just a few steps away. They said it would work the next week.
•Some of the hardware in the bathroom was loose and came easily out of the wall.
•Beaches were a distance, but we rented a car (which I recommend), and had no problem.
•Bus service was inconsistent (rent a car instead), but that had nothing to do with our accommodations.
All were very minor inconveniences that didn't make a difference in the pleasantness of the trip.
Thank you, Annio for a very pleasant stay.
