My partner took me here for my 40th and we stayed for 2 nights. We were a little concerned on arrival as the little bus left us at the bottom of a hill with our luggage. Not too long to wait however and a porter came walking down to greet us. We were told normally donkeys would be used to carry us up the steep hill but it was late and they were asleep. Be prepared for the very steep climb. The effort was well rewarded, what a fabulous unique hotel. The manager, Alexander met us with fabulous Greek canapés and a cold glass of wine. Our bedroom was wonderful, cave like with little nooks, candles were lit. Food was divine, nothing was ever any trouble. Quiet, clean, relaxing and views breathtaking. If you like hotels steeped in history with an imaginative dream like atmosphere, you will appreciate this hotel. You do have to travel outside to see other parts and explore. We would go back, but alas so many other destinations to visit and so little time. I will always remember this trip with a smile.
