The hotel is in the perfect location, with a 10 minute transfer from the airport, 5 minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes on the local bus (1.60) to Fira. The pool is excellent, and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. There is a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the family (and dogs) are all very welcoming. It was my birthday while there and a bottle of wine and two glasses was left on a tray in my room on the day! A lovely touch. If you are feeling up to it take a walk up to Ancient Thira via the mountain opposite the hotel - we got to the top in 35 minutes but you will need to go early before it is too hot!
A small improvement that could be made to the hotel is to have shower cubicles put into the bathrooms as the showers are small and the curtain can make it a bit tricky. However, this wouldn't stop me going back for another lovely, relaxed week in the sun.
