We stayed in the "Royal Pilots Suite", which is the highest apartment at Pilots, and it's worth every penny. It has a large living area, and good sized bedroom which leads out onto a balcony, with superb views over the port. The balcony gets the sun in the morning, and partial sun for the rest of the day, but it's lovely to sit down by the pool too, as the sunbeds are really well spaced out, and there's always room for everybody. Whilst we were there, we had a look around the other rooms, and the Penthouse apartments are lovely too. The ones we looked at were duplex (I think all penthouse suites are), with the bedroom upstairs (toilet downstairs), and you get a bath with the shower, instead of just a shower cubicle. Koutouloufari is lovely - we've been going for the past 5 years, and this is by far the best accommodation we've stayed in there. Pilots is right in the heart of Koutouloufari, (near the wishing well, for those who know it), and it's a straight walk down to Hersonissos (15 mins or so) if you wish to go to the beach. So it's right in the middle of all of the wonderful restaurants when it comes to eating out at night. Pilots is immaculate - full stop. The apartments are cleaned thoroughly every day (and I don't just mean a quick skim with a duster), with fresh towels daily. One tip to be aware of, if you are comparing this to any other hotels in the area - Pilots Villas includes free air conditioning and safety deposit key. Other hotels in the area charge extra for these as hidden costs! There is also free wifi in the hotel, which worked on our balcony too! George and Katarina were fantastic - they really made us feel at home, and welcome. We will return - hopefully soon!
