“Ok for one night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Stayed for one night but after reading so many rave reviews was disappointed.
It was spotlessly clean but found the reception bar and lounge area very dark. Our room had a lovely view over the bay but little privacy as the people in next room could look into ours from the balcony.
The breakfast was very basic and I wouldn't like to have it for more than once.
Don't be fooled by the notice that asks you to join them for afternoon tea between 4.30 and 6. The tea and juice is free but you will be presented with a bill when you leave for the cakes!
Overall it did the job , it was very clean but I wouldn't like to stay for too long.

Hard to know how to start! My Wife, myself and 7 year old son not only had the perfect holiday here, but also left feeling almost bereft to leave Elina, her family and wonderful staff. All of the previous reviews are "spot on" for their lavish praise of this hotel. Indeed the reviews were one of the major reasons we chose the holiday, that and the well deserved reputation of the amazing scenery and quiet beaches (even in mid August!)
We boated, snorkelled, ate and drank relentlessly for 2 weeks, made friends around the pool and left stress free and with the only complaint that we wanted to stay longer!
To give you an idea of the type of hosts Elina and her staff are, as we were waiting to board the transfer coach back to the airport, Elina, her mother, her children and Elene (a totally wonderful manageress 'who drove in especially on her day off) to hug and kiss us goodbye! I have stayed at a lot of hotels around the world-and that has never happened before!!
Recommend, Recommend, Recommend!!

Room Tip: Deluxe Seaview with large balcony is well worth the extra for the view.

We stayed at the almyra in july. We holiday in Greece every Year but this was our first time to fiscardo. We can't wait to return possibly next year and will definitely book the Almyra again.
The hotel is in a beautiful location as not in the town centre and so very relaxing and peaceful. It took us 10 to 15 minutes leisurely walk to fiscardo and I am not a fast Walker.
Elina and her staff are the best hosts, they make you feel like it is your home. We had one of the delux seaview rooms which had a wonderful balcony and great views.
I think whichever room choice you make you're onto a winner as you are so well looked after and the terraces, pool, lounges and breakfast area are immaculately kept.
Thank you Elina and everyone there for a great holiday!

The owners are wonderful. Fab location. Beautifully decorated. Simple breakfast, but lovely. It's like a home away from home. Would definately stay again. Fiscardo is fab, cosmopolitan and classy. It reminds me of Italy but with Feta :). Tassia restaurant was also our favourite place to eat. And the beaches...WOW!!!

Greetings to all trip advisor's readers! I am a Greek doctor who has spent several years in Houston, TX, USA and has travelled all over the world for business and pleasure purposes. I first visited the island and stayed at almyra hotel almost a year ago. I was captivated!!! It was a memorable experience. The hotel and its amenities are simply thumbs up. The location is breathtaking! The personnel will try to satisfy all your needs and will always carry a smile on their faces . But above all , the key to this wonderful hotel's success is it's owners, Chronis and Elina who runs the establishment.She is a lovely young businesswoman who has really invested her soul on her hotel. Spend some time with her and she will capture your heart. Ever since my first stay i have revisited the hotel three times and i intend to keep on doing it . Take my word for it ... It is really worth visiting the island and staying at almyra. It will be an experience you won't forget. And remember.. The family runs Tassia's restaurant in Fiscardo which is simply the best restaurant on the island and one of the most prominent in Greece. Enjoy!!

Stayed for 1 week at the end of June. As others say it's a 10 minute walk to Fiscardo where there are plenty of bars and restaurants - it reminded us of St Tropez. The hotel does a shuttle as it's an uphill walk although only takes about 15 minutes.
Owner Elena extremely friendly and Tassia's her sister in laws restaurant by far the nicest in Fiscardo.
The hotel is very clean and all staff are lovely and helpful - air con is very welcome too in the rooms as are the fridges where you can buy your own things to keep cool.

Alcohol price is good, wine and local beer not too bad cocktails, spirits a little more expensive. The weekly BBQ is very good but so much food so be prepared! Recommend doing a boat hire trip around the beaches and bays, and the ferry trip to the islands both good value and allow you to see a little of the area.

Would recommend the hotel highly and would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: We had a side room which still had a lovely sea view and was quiet think it was 210. If you opt for...
