Dorana Studios are located at Diafani which is at the Northern part of Karpathos. According to most people this area is the most ideal place for relaxation and walks. Diafani is famous for its abudance of fish, diving and spearfishing opportunities. Dorana Studios consist of studios, some double bed, triple bed and a studio with four beds. There is even an apartment with six beds. We have two new family apartments also. All studios have their own balcony and a beautiful sea view, which by the way is only 50 meters away from the studios. The port of Diafani is 200 meters away and close by, you will find restaurants, ouzo bars with traditional appetizers and fish taverns which have fresh fish everyday. If you want to see the amazing sunrise and enjoy Macarunes you can go to Olympos, the most traditional village of Karpathos. It is seven kilometers from Diafani; transportation is on a daily basis. You can also go on daily excursions to different beaches and to the nearby island of Saria by boat. Convinced the hotel organizes programs for individual consumers but also to groups up to 15 people in the trails since the place is ideal for walking to many and clean trails that are all signposted. Even do and guided tours paths but also the island of sarias by ferry from DIAFANI.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place to stay in Diafani! Our room was spacious, had a nice balcony, hot water was good, and the internet worked. The owner was helpful in planning ideas for treks with us each morning during breakfast. There are many hikes and walks that can be done right from the doorstep.

We recommend Dorana Studios to everyone who will stay in a very personal familydriven hotel. Minas and his wife do everything for you and the service level is superb. Very clean. My wife and I stayed for 7 nights and got many good advices related to the beaches, restaurants and walking i the hills. Value for money. The village Dafani is a perl. Very genuin greek village. Just remember that there is no cashmacine. Dorana Studios access cards.

Coming to the end of another wonderful stay. Studios large, cleaned on a regular basis and excellent views of the beach and mountains. The owner Minas and his wife cannot do enough for you and collected me from airport took me to Diafani via supermarket in Pigadia. Diafani is a small village in the season there are plenty of places to eat and regular boat trips to Saria and other parts of the island. Do your research before coming - no cash machines. One small shop that is very overpriced and has limited stock, so stock up on what you need in Pigadia, although there is a fruit and veg van and a bread van come on a regular basis. Out of season there are usually 2 restaurants open Corali and Golden Beach both serving excellent food. Walking in the mountains here is breath taking and several well signed trails.

We recommend Dorana Studio to all who are looking for a nice studio next to the see, with nice view on Diafani and towards the see. Even if next to the harbour, it is very quiet. Minas, the owner, is a very helpful person and can give a lot of local information.

The owner Minas and his wife are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure that you have a good time. Wifi signal is good and the rooms are basic with good quality towels and sheets and good value. Very much enjoyed my week there in November. Diafani itself is easily got to by the big ferry boat from Rhodes or Piraeus but the town is very remote so the single food shop is expensive but the tavernas are good value. Great walking area leading through olive groves to various remote beaches. A very different Greek island location compared to others.

Once again had a lovely stay. Besutiful clean rooms and Minas and his wife make you very welcome. The new apartments are finished and Minas showed me NO 10, lovely apartment separate bedroom, large bathroom and balcony. Lovely view of the sea. Right on the front and short walk to everything. Cannot wait to revisit.

Stayed here at the Easter, rooms quite big and very clean. If self-catering as I was it would have been nice to see a few more pans etc. Other wise well catered for. It is on the main road into the village (although village is very small and not like the road is a motorway), which was not a problem at that time of year, as double glazed, but not sure what it would be like in the summer. Minas the owner was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure everything ok. Would recommend a stay here as location is great
