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.
