I had the pleasure of staying here for 7 nights and I cannot wait to go back in the future. Before my stay, I sent several emails to Aphrodite with questions and she always very kindly responded in full. She also arranged for a taxi to pick me up from the airport and so I arrived at the hotel feeling well taken care of already.
Aphrodite and her family are the most warm, friendly and welcoming hosts one can ever ask for- such genuinely lovely people. Nothing is too much trouble, they are always happy to give recommendations and answer questions and even sorting out a rental car for me was no issue.
The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. There is daily comprehensive and friendly cleaning services which is great for a beach location. The room had a nice kitchenette and beautiful clean lines, which again helps set the right mood for relaxing and chilling without clutter or distractions. The balcony was a real treat and it was very peaceful to sit on it listening to the sea at night- seeing the stars was another bonus!
The buffet breakfast is brilliant- a wide variety of foods, catering for every taste in my view and the food was fresh and very tasty. I can also really recommend the fruit salads they make on request from the bar- it is the most beautiful and scrumptious treat.
The location: the location is so great that I really had to force myself to venture out a bit. It depends on the purpose of one's trip, but I was really looking for some time to just relax and recharge. This location is ideal for that- the beach is lovely, calm and warm waters and great sun beds with drinks and snacks service. It was really easy to roll out of bed, to the buffet breakfast, roll back on the sun beds and relax the whole day. At the same time, it is also close to some great beaches such as Falassarna (most beautiful sunsets!) and Balos. The taverna next to the hotel is really to be recommended- the food is truly fantastic and the service is warm, personable and friendly.
I have to agree with other reviewers that I was very sad to leave- I honestly wished I could have stayed longer in this paradise. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough- it's a true tonic for the soul.
