“A very enjoyable stay - would recommend to all.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

From the moment we arrived at the Castelli Hotel we knew that we would have a very good holiday. We were greeted warmly by Spiros and his Daughter Maria and after a chat over a drink we were shown to our very spacious room. Spiros is very proud of his hotel which is very clean and well maintained and deserving of the gold medal awards that it has received regularly over the years.
Our large room had plenty of hanging and drawer space, double bed, bedside units with drawers, TV, dressing table with chair and several comfy chairs; the fridge and air conditioning were available at an extra charge. The ensuite was adequate with a shaower that never ran out of hot water; a number of toiletries were provided. We had a ground floor room with a good sized balcony with clothes drier, table and chairs. First and second floor rooms are smaller but have a larger balcony.
The pool is the cleanest that we've had and there were more than enough sun beds, even with the usual morning towel laying antics. The pool bar had a very good selection of drinks and food.

Breakfast is continental in style and we found it to be very adequate.

All members of family and staff spoke good to very good English and all gave a friendly efficient service.

The hotel is located about a five minute walk from the southwest end of Lagana beach on the road to Aghios Sostis. It is in a quiet location but within easy reach of the local attractions.

There are numerous places to eat within a 10 minute walk of the hotel. Our favourite was El Greccos, left out of the hotel, first left then follow the signs.

Room Tip: If space is what you are after then ask for a ground floor room. Doubles are available when booked i...

My partner has been here for the last 10 years and now I know why. A fantatic family run hotel, where you will be treated as one of them.
The hotel welcome, food and cleanliness are exceptional with a lovely pool and plenty of sun loungers.
Its just a 5 mins walk from the beach and a selection of restuarant, and Sipros is a wealth of information if you need help.
Already booked for next year and can not wait to return.

Everything I expected and more! It is like visiting friends, the family take you to their hearts. Everywhere was clean, pool lovely inc the little Jacuzzi, loved the pool bar and its food! Tucked away in a quiet area I heard no traffic noises or anything else; but a 5 minute walk down the road was the beach and loads of restaurants to choose from, all with great views of the bay. Spiros also had recomendartions of other restaurants in the vicinity. Great place, great location, just great!!

The Castelli is a fabulous familly run hotel away from the noise of the Laganas club strip,close enough to walk there but far enough away if it's not what you want.
Spiros ( the man who never sleeps),Anastasia, Maria and staff do evrything in their power to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. Their recomendations for places to eat really are the best places and most of these places will come and pick you up from the hotel and bring you back...free.
The food served at the hotel during the day is good and not expensive and the pool spotlesly clean with plenty of loungers.
All in all a fabulous,relaxing holiday, in a clean well run hotel, where nothing is too much trouble for anybody working there.
I went with my mother and the 1st few days we were struck with a bug, the staff at the Castelli realy couldn't have been more helpfull, even at 3am...THANK YOU.

we are just back from our 3rd trip to the castelli and yet again had a brilliant time and spiros, anastasia and maria were as always welcoming. this truly is a gem of a hotel and an area. if your going for the first time do listen to the owners about restaurant recommendations and go to them if you want to hire cars and then find out where's good to go. dont get a car through thompson as its 156 euro for 3 days and we paid 91 for 2 days with fully comp insurance and no excess. the akropolis is an amazing restaurant about 10 ins walk away and really shouldnt be missed.
we will be going back again!

We have again been to the lovely Castelli hotel. We booked direct with the hotel, which we would definately recommend. The hotel was as clean and well run as every, by Spiros, Anastasia and their daughter Maria, who are all very helpful and have an excellent knowledge of the surrounding area. Another relaxing holiday in an idyllic setting!

The Castelli is a small hotel and the service is amazing. When I learned that it is a family run hotel I did not realise that you become part of the family for the duration of your stay....just exceptional.
