We booked in October 2015 for last 2 weeks of the season having been regular visitors for many years. Manos informed us in June 2016 accommodation not available & we were being moved to Blue Sky. On querying with Thomas Cook office they spoke to Manos who firstly said it was over booked. When we pointed out how long ago... More

Once again visiting Nakellis Apartments in Petra. A peaceful and restful stay with friendly owners and many other returning visitors, it is that kind of place. The pool is beautiful and the rooms although quite basic are clean and have all you would need. The apartments are set in an olive grove which is also owned by the owners of... More

I flew to Lesvos in May in search of a retreat to relax and destress. Nakelis studios met all my expectations. It is a family run resort surrounded by nature and yet so close to the central square (about 5') so you don't miss out on the tavernas, cafes and all the fun. It has basic rooms that are cleaned...

Having stayed at the more livelier Hotel Blue Sky in 2014 we decided we would give the more rurally located Nakellis Studios a try this year. It is about a 7-10 mins stroll from the main square and a couple of mins from the nearest taverna. There are just 10 rooms in the complex which is situated in an olive... More

You see all the bad reviews. But they are just from people that have hi expectations and fussy. This hotel is good for the price and has a lovely pool,well kept flowers in entrance. The food is fresh, like the Greek salad is fresh from the garden😍 . The acomadation is standerd but good value.

Absolutely lovely place to stay. The pool is magnificent, the grounds too, full of fruit trees and vegetables. All of these could be yours in a salad, omelet or pizza freshly prepared by Paniota and really enhances the holiday. Our July holiday at Nakellis was to be our 6th, we love it there so much. Sadly though, our flight has... More

I stayed in room 2 for a week. The door was so creaky it would have woken the whole house in the early hours. It was never fixed. If you like cold showers and putting used toilet paper in a pedal bin, and enjoy mopping the floor after every shower, then this is the place for you. Sorry but not... More

Stayed at the Nakellis from 26/09/15 until 03/10/15. Rooms very basic. Blankets had a fusty / doggy smell. The plumbing in the bathroom very poor, every time you took a shower you had to mop the floor as the soapy water came up through the floor. Solar heating, so if no sun or insufficient sunshine there is NO HOT WATER.... More

We stayed at the Nakellis at the end of August and the grounds and pool are lovely. The first week was ok but noise from dogs barking intermittently throughout the night and a disco for 3 nights was pretty annoying. Unfortunately the second week was awful, mainly due to the additional noise from guests in the bar.We were in room... More
