“Lovely”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This hotel is in a lovely location right on the beach front where sun beds are supplied for you.
The Hotel is run by a family so if very, very friendly and the staff will help you
in whatever you require.
The food is excellent I recommend everything on the menu.
The jetty is located by the hotel and is also convienient for pedalos or you
can hire a boat from Telis at a good rate.
All round a very good holiday and I will return next year.

Room Tip: Good selection of rooms,side rooms with balcony very good.

A bit hard to reach. But it's directly on the beach. Drive up to the end of the main road, park at the public car park and walk onto the beach. There's a small alley parallel to the beach.

Reception was friendly, rooms are very clean. Free wifi, better outside then in.
Free sunbeds and umbrellas but come early as the Germans and Russians tend to occupy the beds with towels.

Sunrise is stunning! Eat breakfast at the outside restaurant area and enjoy the morning peace and quiet.

Boats can be rented for 15€ per hour from 7:30 am.

After 3 weeks of touring around the Peloponnese this was exactly what we needed; a lovely little hotel right on the beach, nearly in the water actually! Mine host George speaks English, there's a lift, the food - the fresh fish his father catches is absolutely gorgeous! We extended our stay to a week after just 2 nights and moved up to a studio ... the view is superb, the staff lovely, the weather's almost perfect. What more could you want? Just to ensure it wasn't paradise we had a persistent mossie at 3 am but that was the worst of it. For the money this is incredible value and I doubt you'd find it anywhere else - certainly not in Australia.

Room Tip: The front rooms offer the best view; and we like top floors if there's a lift to avoid noise.

We visited Tolo last month as my husband was in Nafplio with work for a few days. The hotel had been booked for us and we had no idea what to expect. We usually choose hotels carefully using other reviews etc and generally stay in 5 star hotels but as it was just for a few days we were happy with what we got in most respects. FIrstly the staff were very friendly and on the first morning we were the only guests in the hotel so breakfast was a treat with everything on offer bought to our table. It was just toast, cereals, bread, fruit etc but there was a lot of it and it was very nice. The hotel is right on the beach which is beautiful. There is not actually much to do in the hotel, no pool or other facilities which is a shame and the decor is a little tired and could do with updating. We were up on the top floor with a connecting room for our children and the rooms are not up to much. However, overall we had a lovely stay and the staff were so nice that that more than made up for the lack of luxury.

The hotel is small but charming and is, quite literally, located on the beach. The rooms are (very)aged but clean and have reasonable beds. Bathroom is really not of this day and age with a leaky toilet-pot and blackened grout. There is an internet connection available at no cost but it is extremely slow, quirky and you constantly need refresher password-tickets.

The staff is the very best I have ever come across anywhere, bar none. Friendly, informative, caring and knowledgeable - really super duper. We were invited over to the John & George which belongs to the same owners, for the Easter meal - all I can say is wow! What a happening and we were treated as part of the family.

My only and really only niggle is breakfast: quality is simply not good enough. The food is not attractive, coffee is undrinkable as is the tea and the "orange juice" is of the powdered and very chemical tasting type. Such an easy fix guys, do someting about it!

Otherwise, this hotel made our stay unforgettable.

Excellent hotel! The room was large enough, stylish and very cosy. Both bathroom and bedroom were exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. On top of that, the service was very friendly. I totally suggest it and will certainly visit it again!

This is a lovely hotel situated in the quiet end of the resort. Having said that, it is 5 mins walk along the main street to all the restaurants and bars in Tolon. The best part of the hotel is that it is right on the beach. Really. You step off the hotel terrace straight onto the sand. Its a couple of meters further and you are in the sea. So no hassle of having to carry anything to and fro the hotel. The water is quite shallow for a long way so it is very safe for swimming. The view to the island across the water is stunning - often in the early morning a school of dolphins swims by. The hotel itself is quite simple but very clean. The aircon worked a treat and was very quiet. The food is very reasonable in price and the morning breakfast included in the price of the room was very plentiful and tasty. Traditional Greek fare - cheeses, cold meats, olives, fruit, etc. Must mention the staff, who are very polite and very helpful. Gave us lots of information about the area and all the places to see. We had a small problem with the hire car and a guy from the Hotel came out and fixed it for us. Very highly recommended.
