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.

"Welcome, welcome," were the first words out of her mouth as she picked up one of our suitcases and lugged it off in the direction of the reception area. "First have a drink on the house and then we'll take you to your room," was the second thing she said to us. I thought to myself - I could get to like it here!

We crossed the street from the hotel to the bar area they have, which is right on the beach. How cool a location is that? I had a Mythos beer - which only seems to come in half-litre bottles, what a bummer - and my girlfriend had a sparkling water. Not five minutes after us sitting down to enjoy our drinks, the lady of the house arrived with a plate of olives, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, cucumber, tzatziki, spicy sausage and bread. On the house again!!

After polishing all that off, we headed to our room as we wanted to freshen up. A decent-sized room... with air-conditioning! Essential. Costs €5 per day. Well worth it.

The lady of the house (we'll call her by her proper name from now on - Electra) asked us if we wanted breakfast. What does it consist of, we asked?
Hard-boiled egg, orange juice, tea or coffee, cooked ham, sliced cheese, cucumber, spicy sausage, an omelette and bacon! That sounded like quite a breakfast we concluded. "What does all that cost?" we asked. Three euro-fifty!! It's a steal. "Yes please, put us down for breakfast," we said immediately and before she might change her mind and withdraw this wonderful offer.

It was a pleasure to get up each morning and tuck into that wonderful breakfast. Set the tone for the day. We often had lunch there as well. Their souvlaki sandwich with chips was wonderful, as were their pizzas. We didn't eat dinner there but I'm sure it was up to scratch.

We hit the pool shortly after breakfast most days. It's located between the main building and a second building with bedrooms. This meant there was always a nice breeze blowing through the area, which kept things cool. There was a covered area under some green where you could sit as well.

After lunch, we'd usually head across the road to the beach. Your beer was always served in an ice bucket. There were plenty of places to sit/lie and watch the waves lap up on the shore and then later watch those spectacular sunsets that Petra is famous for.

Electra's husband (Costa) seemed to spend most of his time working behind the bar. A friendly guy as well. Their two daughters also helped out, so all of them were going flat out most all day long; so much for the caricature of the lazy Greek sitting around in the sun all day long, doing nothing. The little girls were great and they would not let you carry anything yourself. If you tried, they'd take it out of your hand and say - "we have to go to the kitchen ourselves anyway" or some statement like that. They spoke pretty good English and that's because they go to a special school to learn it.

I'll finish by relaying a story that shows their attitude towards their guests. My girlfriend likes a slice of lemon in her beer. However, one time we were at the beach bar and they'd run out of lemon. We said - "it's really not a problem. Don't worry about it." and we meant it and we said it in a way to show we meant it. Electra said nothing but five minutes later she shows up beside our beach chair with some lemon. After chastising her for being so silly to go running off to the hotel like that for a piece of lemon, she answered - "why not, if I have the time."

... as if she didn't have enough to do!
Trust me, if you decide to stay at Cavo Christo you'll not want for attention.

Amazing food experience. The food in the beach with this view is priceless.
I'm hoping to go back and visit them again in 2015.
The Italian pizza is even better than Italy.
Thank you Costa & Electra for your services.

Poor service, without covid measures and generally very dirty. We struggled to find stuff, never changed bed sheets and towels. Sunbeds were old and broken. The coffee was awful and also breakfast was very poor.

We arrived to the beach of Cavo Christo with the intention of staying for the day and using the facilities .... their sign said free sunbed if you spent €3... we were 2 adults using sunbeds and 3 kids aged 12-15 who never sit on sunbrds... so we ordered 2 beers for then as kids were swimming with the intention of having drinks when they finished their swim and lunch later. they had a shower after the got out of the sea..and within 1 minute a woman came to us saying very forcefully you must pay €9 as your children used the shower... I replied saying we were intending to order drinks for the kids too and later food for us all and also pointed out her sign stated €3 per sunbed and our kids hadn't used a sunbed... she seemed appeased..
But 10 mins later she came back with a bill for €9 saying you must pay now cos your kids used shower and i have taken picture as evidence (wtf) and there are big taxes to pay and if the tax police come they have a big problem.. she was so aggressive she I said to here we already said our kids would order drinks and all of us lumch so there is no need to be rude and pushy... and I gave here the €9 ... but we felt very unwelcome and the whole beach was now looking at us... so we decided to leave.. i went to the bar to order €9 of drinks for kids... I told man we were leaving and he said you are liars ... you said 2 people... I said no we said 2 sunbeds and also told your waitress we wanted to have lunch and drinks for kids...
So based on this experience I would not recommend the beach services... really hope hotel service us better... we went 100 meters up the beach and had a lovely lunch with pleasant and helpful welcoming staff...

Very nice family hotel in a very good location. See is in front of the hotel. Breakfast is very very rich. Food is excellent like a 5 star restaurant. Owners of the hotel work around 15-16 hours to please the customers. Perfect place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights, the room was spacious and has a seaside view from the balcony. The beach is nice and located just opposite the hotel after the road. Hotel's location is superb, it's not too close to crowdness of Petra but also you can walk there if you need anything.

Owners, Electra and Kostas are very friendly, they helped us a lot with our trip in Lesbos. I strongly recommend this hotel.

We didn't stay here but used the beach bar and sunbeds frequently. We found them incredibley helpful and friendly (more so than the owners of where we were staying!) and enjoyed frequenting here. The beer came in a bucket of ice to take on the beach, and the food was good.

No hot water in the room...!
The beach bar is not a beach bar. Not even water was served. Everything comes from the inside (main building). I had to take my breakfast/coffee myself to the beach bar.
Many times, there was none to keep our glasses full with water!
Owners are friendly to you, but disgusting behaviour with personnel - and this in public!
Understaffed - no barman, no service pad to the beach.
Main building is a mess. No reception.
Found a small blood stain in the sheet.
All they care about is the Dutch people that go there and their kitchen.
Medium - bad food.
They think it is class A, but they serve decorated... bread.
The pool is a joke.
I wouldn't go there again.
Sorry.
I'd prefer Lia-Toula appartments, almost 100m away. Better service, traditional and clean and professionals and cheaper!
