I booked a week's stay after a friend recommended this place but because of the VERY low price I was a bit worried about what kind of establishment this would be. It turned out that I was wrong and my friends absolutely right!
First of all I need to establish that this is NOT a luxury boutique hotel. If that is what you want don't come here because you will ruin everybody's fun. This is a complex of white studios with blue shutters and doors and pink boukamvelia trees. The property has its own swimming pool (with an actual deep end). The rooms inside are spacious, air-conditioned, have a kitchenette with fridge to do your own cooking or prepare breakfast.
It's true that the furniture does seem a bit dated. However, the matresses, sheets, pillow cases and towels are spotless. The rooms are cleaned twice a week but Eva is more than happy to provide extra towels or sheets if necessary. This is a family run hotel and we even rented a car (a brand new fiat) for the week we stayed at an equally low price. Concidering that we had travelled at the peak of the holiday season this was a pleasant surprise.
Koutouloufari is a great little village with a main street lined with restaurants and bars. The village has character and is ideal for families and for the laid back. If on the other hand the club scene is your thing Hersonisos bedlam-drink and dance till you drop- is a 15 min walk down hill or a 3min drive. Ask Manolis (the son) to steer you in the right direction.
What we found amazing was that during our stay, we met 2 couples, one from Holland and another from Germany, who had come to stay for their 10th year and had become friends of Paul and Eva rather than customers. Finally what really put a smile on my face was the fact that after a wonderful holiday at Paul & Eva's I paid for room and car rental for one week what I would have paid for 3 days. That is what I call REAL VALUE for my money!
Recommended? Hell yes!
