Very nice hotel with 35 apartments beautifully located on the slope of the hill (a bit hiking though to and from reception, restaurant and pool), with amazing view of the bay (definitely recommend the apartment with sea view), two small stone and sandy beaches about 100 m away from the hotel across the main road, small rocky peninsula and the...

I was there with my family last July, it was little bit crowded but silent. Clean hotel, comfortable rooms, good restaurant and sweet and helpful staff. Amoudara has an amazing landscape and this hotel provided beautiful views.

When we arrived it was 11.30pm, it had taken nearly two hours from the airport. We needed a drink but hadn't any bottled water with us as we thought there would be a place open to buy some when we arrived. After asking we eventually got some from the reception but was told that they were closed and it was...

Although it is an all inclusive hotel, the quality of food was very satisfied and the dinner you spend in the taverna Pergola is a unique experience.

Loved the apartments although probably need a car to get about. Best beach in area about 2 km away. Too many barking dogs. Only ate in hotel twice at buffet on offer, food of poor standard and not much choice.
