We booked our holiday at the Blue Horizon several weeks before travelling & had some great advice & tips from another TA member. (Thank you Nicky)
The hotel was as we expected, clean & basic & the staff were extremely friendly & helpful in every way they could be.
The big surprise for us was that we were the only two people staying at the hotel!! In fact the hotel would have closed for the season on the day we arrived had it not been for our booking.
I must stress that at no time did the staff make us feel like this was a problem for them... but for us it was very different to any other holiday we have been on. Unique in fact... to have an entire hotel to ourselves... and we certainly had undivided & individual attention!
The Blue Horizon is well situated for walks to tavernas, restaurants & beaches all of which we found to be lovely. The area is peaceful & relaxing & a great base to tour this beautiful island.
We enjoyed watching the planes coming & going from our balcony... They were not so frequent as to be a problem.
Breakfasts could possibly be improved by some variation, but were as expected.
Transfers (by taxi) were a bit of a rip off!! We paid 17 euros from the airport & 20 to go back!! (3 kilometres max) Next time we would hire a car to collect from the airport for the duration of our holiday, as everywhere is easy to find & the roads & hotels are (fairly) well sign posted. Greekstones car hire were very helpful & can be booked in advance on their website.
Finally, in summary, we had a great holiday!
I think that being the only two guests meant that we got to know the staff, particularly Costas, who was our evening host, really well & we enjoyed our late night conversations with him & thank him for his hospitality & humour.
