“Best Hotel on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2010

Our trip to Aeolos began with the owner picking us up from the ferry port. He drove us to the hotel pointing out the different sites and explaining the history of the island. On arrival at the hotel we were given sweets and nice cold drinks to enjoy in the lovely reception area. The owner then showed us to our room and carried all of our bags! The hotel was newly built and the room very spacious, clean and well presented. Our balcony looked out over the ocean.

During our stay, the owner recommended restaurants, beaches and beautiful lookouts that we could visit. After a hot day roaming around the island, the hotel pool was the perfect place to relax and unwind. It was always clean and the sun lounges were very comfy.

Our only criticism of the island itself was that the food at the restaurants was not always to our liking. If you love fish then you'll love all the restaurants! We wouldn't really say they offer a 'seafood' menu, just local fish varieties. However we were there early in the season so we're not sure if all of the restaurants were open.

Overall an amazing stay which was largely thanks to the friendliness and comfort of what we would call the best hotel on the island.

The title says it all! Had the best 5 nights on this beautiful island - will certainly go back. Had an awesome room, amazing views, and the service can't be faulted. Family run business who go out of their way to make your holiday extra special. The breakfasts are soooooo good too - fresh fruit, yummy yoghurt, local hunny, and scumptious cake. This is one very special hotel and the owners should be VERY proud! Thank you so much!

as a traveller of the best hotels in the world, we found in Koufonissia the best welcoming hotel run by a wonderfull family who takes care of your comfort all day round.The place is perfectly clean and a small property where details are looked after by the family and team around them.15 days were great this year and we shall return next summer.

Aeolos is the Greek God of the wind and here the North wind never stops blowing, otherwise the heat would be intolerable. The island is very nice, full of Scandinavians, Greeks and a few other European nationalities. Travelling to Koufonisi is not too difficult for Europeans but long haul travellers it's at least 2 days.
Located on top of a small hill the Aeolos offers bed and breakfast with self catering facilities. The rooms, impecably clean and fitted out with Scandinavioan furniture are a good size with very comfortable beds. However, the EXIT sign in the room above the door, housing the emergency lighting is more suitable for Discos, Bars, Cinemas etc.
Unfortunayely the Buffet breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. As an example wafer thin pieces of cake that break when placed on the plaqte, poor quality jams and tasteless mini croissants. Furthermoe, watching the women washing up doesn't add any glamour to the holiday.
The pool is very nice in the late afternoon. During the day as there is no shade and as the umbrellas have seen better times, they cannot be opened as the broken cords for them have not been replaced for a few years.
The beaches, one and a half miles away are dirty, offer no shade and any portable beach umbrella requires anchoring to avoid the wind blowing it away.
However, view of the surrounding islands and the crystal clear water of the sea is something special.
The local people in the village are all quitely spoken, extremely well natured and very helpful. The Tavernas and there are quite a few, all offer traditional Greek food at affordable prices.

Me and my husband would like to thank Aeolos people for the wonderfull stay
we ve been there for the last 4 years Aeolos Hotel is 100% the most beautiful, roomy and clean hotel in Koufonisia Island.
Although we can afford to pay the 135 euros per night and for sure we will stay at Aeolos for next year I personal believe that it is quite high price for this island. Dear Stamatis try to think reasonable and keep the price at 120 maximum 130. They have to take care a couple of things Free Intertnet in the rooms (like it was on the 2008) and better breakfast.
I understand that if someone has to compare the other Hotels especially the newest named Paradise Resort (I had no other choice than stay for 2 nights there is no more than a bad taste room to let with 120 euros) he will found out that Aeolos is by far the BEST hotel in KOUFONISIA.
this does mean that the best should race the price to god!!!!
thank you Stamatis and Yiannis

When arriving to Koufonissi very early in the morning around 01:15 mr.stamatis was waiting for us. After checking in and entering our room we were amazed, we had entered paradise, the view was excellent and the rooms were big. That same day we woke up and ate breakfast, which was amazing, the best breakfast ever offered in a hotel. The wi-fi worked great and everyone working at the hotel was very nice. Highly recommended and definitely coming back next year.

The thing about Aeolos is that it provides you with the type of luxury that will not disturb the traditional elements that make it authentic. Simple yet stylish, that makes you forget everything once you sit at your spacious veranda. The owner, Stamatis, knows the job and he'll be open to assist you in almost anything you need, without disturbing your privacy. His beautiful wife makes excellent Fredo Capuccino - by the way she's Italian!
We stayed at room 14, highly recommended :) The free wifi was also greatly appreciated.

Bravo!
