“Cannot be faulted!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

I booked the Fiscardo Bay Hotel having read the other reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. This hotel simply cannot be faulted. It is spotlessly clean, cleaner than any hotel I've ever stayed in, very well maintained, pretty much everything looks new/newly painted and the lovely young owners, Dimitris & Angeliki, cannot do enough for you.

The breakfasts are relatively simple but delicious, especially the home made jams, the location great, only a 5 minute walk from the harbour which means that at night it is nice and peaceful. Being up on the hillside also means that you have a great view from your balcony and from the deck around the pool. Although the pool is not huge is was perfect for us as it meant I didn't guilt myself into early morning lengths :0).

Having only 10 rooms also means it's nice and quiet, so no fighting for a spot by the pool or getting up late and missing out on breakfast.

It meant we had a fantastic, relaxed week of sun and I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, it's one of those places where I completely understand why people would choose to go back year after year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much the same, all overlook the pool and the harbour

My husband and I stayed here recently and had a really lovely time. The hotel is small, friendly and peaceful. Rooms were nicely decorated, all with a balcony with a great view of the harbour. Breakfast was excellent - all the foods you expect to see on a greek breakfast (fresh fruit, greek yogurt, toast, pastries, hams, cheese etc) and everything was of a high quality, and very fresh & tasty. Good coffee, really tasty homemade preserves and tasty homemade biscuits or a traditional dish to try. It was also really nice to eat breakfast on the pool terrace - a great start to each day.

Dimitiris & Angeliki were great hosts, very friendly & helpful. Vasilis was also really helpful and very friendly - all in all, a really great team! We only wished we had more time to sit and chat to them!

Pool isn't huge, but a good size given the size of the hotel. You will find that you pretty much have it all to yourself alot of the time, which was nice. Other positives - free wifi, very good air con, free local parking, great little shower room, free safe in each room and unlimited free local advice from your hosts! Oh, and the hotel is immaculately clean.

Fiscardo itself is quaint and busy enough to have some life about it without being too busy. The hotel is a pleasant stroll to the harbour with its restaurants and cafes, which were pretty good (although if you have a car it is worth driving 10 - 15 mins to the local villages to get a really good meal). There are beautiful beaches nearby, with crystal clear water and plenty of fish to swim with. We loved our stay from start to finish!

Thanks to Dimitris, Angeliki and Vasilis for making our break so lovely! We hope to return one day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floor offer more privacy, but all rooms are very nice!

My wife and I have just returned from 2 glorious weeks holiday at the friendly and sociable Fiskardo Bay Hotel. The hotel is very well located 2 minutes stroll to the restaurants and shops on the quayside and it's slightly elevated position provides a lovely view over the town and harbour. Dimitrius and Angeliki are very charming and cannot do enough for their guests. The breakfasts are lovely and mostly home made and baked. The rooms are well equipped with coffee making facilities, CD player, hair drier, no charge safe, mini bar and of course a highly efficient air conditioning system. They also provide towels for use at the pool.
Fiskardo is a great location if your preference is for no sports bars, happy hours or Sunday Roasts. It is pretty and cosmopolitan and the restaurants do not hassle you for your custom. The most of the beaches are pebbly but still lovely.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have the best views.

Myself and my husband loved staying in this stylish and personal hotel. The rooms are beautifully dressed and spacious and the whole decor of the hotel is modern and fresh. I loved the breakfast and it was great to sit and eat out by the pool. The staff are friendly and helpful and have created a fantastic atmosphere for someone spending time in fiscardo.

The hotel was clean, ideal location and the staff very friendly. The staff were always more than willing to help in any way they could, including arranging car hire.
The rooms were a good size and kept very clean. This is the sort of hotel you go to to relax and unwind.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We’ve just returned from a very relaxing 5 day stay at this gem of a family run boutique hotel. Angeliki, Dimitris and Vasilis were friendly and welcoming, and made us feel at home from the minute we stepped over the threshold. Our room was cool and contemporary with an amazing view of the small harbour. The bed was very comfortable with crisp cotton bed linen, and we soon found ourselves slipping into the Greek way of an afternoon siesta before going down to one of the outdoor harbour side restaurants for a late night meal. The breakfast buffet, eaten by the tranquil pool terrace, was delicious and included authentic Greek pastries and other homemade dishes, together with continental options and cereals. We loved watching the antics of swifts and swallows swooping low over the pool each morning as we lingered over our coffee in the warm sunshine. The hotel is perfectly located just a 5 minute walk from the quiet picturesque harbour with its excellent variety of open air restaurants. We happily recommend the Fiscardo Bay Hotel and look forward to returning next year!
