I have stayed many times now at lovely family run Jason Hotel and it does indeed get better each time if that is at all possible to improve on such a lovely traditional family run hotel. This year has seen some major refurbishment with a new reception area and breakfast room, new bathrooms, and reconfiguration of rooms. I was most impressed with the quality of the renovations. Flat screen TV's and a secure safe in each room,and improved air conditioning, double glazing and new patio doors helping with security and noise. Rooms are sparkling clean and clean towels every day. The cleaner is quite clearly a superwoman. By the time you have had breakfast or your early morning swim, your room will have been completely transformed. I stayed in the spacious room 113 which has a lovely patio with views over the pool area and a proper bath. Breakfast is continental with as much as you like and eggs from the family's chickens. There is free excellent WiFi in rooms and pool area and free use of a computer in the reception/lounge area. Nothing is too much trouble. They go the extra mile in providing personal touches for individual guests. I stayed independantly and was kindly picked up and taken to the airport by members of the family . The location out of town is ideal as it is much quieter. The bus stops right outside and runs regularly for €1.60 before midnight and €2.00 after midnight. Taxi fares are anything from €5-€10 for local trips to town or Ornos. There is a new addition of an ATM near by which is very useful. The local supermarket is well stocked and just around the corner is a lovely snack bar selling fresh fruit juices, smoothies and pastries. There are 2 very close places to eat, a traditional Greek taverna and an Italian/pizza restaurant within easy walking distance. Ice cream,toasties, sandwiches and pizza are available at the hotel but when their Greek and fruit salads are so delicious you probably won't want to try the fast food options. The bar is well stocked and very reasonable and there is plenty of information available for good local bars,reastuarants and tavernas and other activites. None of the cards in reception advertized anywhere that I wouldn't go myself. There is even a qualified physiotherapist available to come and give you a massage should you wish. You do need to travel to the nearest beach in Platys Yialos either by a brisk 20 minute downhill walk or by bus. It is possible to walk to Ornos beach from the hotel, the owners will tell you which path to take. You can take the coastal path from Platys Yialos to Agia Anna and Paranga beach or by water taxi from Platy Yialos to a variety of splendid beaches for about €7return.
In short. Value for money is excellent, quality of accomoadation and service is outstanding, and it is Greek filoxenia is at it's best. I can't wait to return and see the planned updating of the pool area in 2013.
