We have just returned from a week on Sifnos and stayed at the Margado. After extensive research on tripadvisor and elsewhere we chose the Margado as it appears to be pretty much the only hotel in Kamares with a pool. As a pool was on the 'must have' check list for my 2 children (aged 13 and 11), we booked this hotel.

It was a lovely place with large clean rooms, a pretty pool area, nice balconys, great views and free wifi (again useful with teens). Stella the owner was such a lovely host, from collecting us at the port, to advising on places to see and eat, she was a font of information in at least 4 languages!

Breakfast was 8 - 11am, so nice leisurely mornings, was served buffet-style by the pool. On Sundays the traditional Sifnosian (?) delicacy of chickpea stew was on offer too. This was cooked on the Saturday night on the open fire. I can't describe how delicious it was (make sure you are there for the weekend!).

Sitting on our balcony we could see across the bay, and watch the sun setting over the sea. Due to it's position at the top of the village, the view was beautiful, but bear in mind it is at the top of a steep hill. For this reason it might not suit families with very young children, or less able adults. This would be the only downside to the place, though it is quite a thrill driving up or down it on hired mopeds, or in our case, a jeep.

Kamares itself was my ideal holiday location, a lovely sandy beach, shallow crystal clear water, a choice of restaurants and a couple of cafes/bars, mini-markets and a couple of shops. It felt like a village that had grown organically and was not a purpose built 'resort' which we felt about Platys Yialos. It was also very quiet, and the weather at approx 30 c was perfect. High summer would be just too hot (for me) and far busier. Kamares is brilliant but we really enjoyed exploring the rest of the island in the jeep which we hired at a very reasonable rate from ProtoMoto.

If you want a hotel with some of the most fabulous views of the Aegean then you cannot go wrong with the Margado. This excellent hotel is in Sifnos' port town of Kamares which has a fantastic beach and all the facilities that you need for a great holiday.

The owner, Stella, is a lovely, friendly lady and from the moment she first meets you on the port to that final sad goodbye (I dare you not to shed a tear when you leave this island), she looks after you. A delicious continental breakfast is offered from 8:00 until the very civilised time of 11:00 every day right next to the swimming pool in a delightful setting.

The piece de la resistance, however, was the room that we stayed in. We decided to book one of the superior rooms which is right at the top of the building. It had a huge balcony which was not just at the front but went around the side as well. It had a good quality table and chairs and a concrete ledge which went all around the bottom of the balcony so that you could sit comfortably wherever you wanted. The room was cleaned thoroughly every day with simple toileteries provided and clean towels. I personally suffer from a back problem and had no back pain for the entire week which was thanks to the very comfortable beds.

True, there was a bit of a walk from the beach and port to the hotel so people with walking difficulties may need to think carefully but we were informed that car hire was extremely reasonable and you don't get fantastic views without being in a slightly elevated position! We chose not to hire a car as Kamares had everything we needed and we did the walk twice a day and it was fine - in fact it was beautifully scenic - and gave us the opportunity to admire the cycladic flora and architecture.

As for Kamares - we don't have children but noticed that there were many children playing quietly and safely on the beach and that the water remained shallow for a very long way out. The sand was soft underfoot which negates the need for worrying about sea urchins and the expense of swimming shoes. There are plenty of tavernas selling traditional (and delicious) Greek food and there are ice cream parlours, bakeries and pastry shops - so ideal for family holidays but low key enough for couples too. The swimming pool at Margado is lovely and clean too. There are sunbeds located on the beach at only 5 euro for two beds and an umbrella and we enjoyed eating at Captain Andreas taverna for lunch as it was on the beach and about three metres from our sunbeds. The cafe that provides the sunbeds also does snacks if you fancy something lighter. However, if you choose not to be lazy like us there is plenty to see around the island and loads of culture to enjoy.

All in all a fabulous holiday - highly recommended.

We were picked up at the port by Stella, the owner. She will make you feel like family and as a result, the vibe of this place is very positive. Kamares is a quiet place with not much going on, so sitting poolside for the day is wonderful. The room was a bit spartan but clean and had everything you need. The wireless works better in or close to the lobby. I am still dreaming about the delectable yogurt that was served with the buffet breakfast. We went on to other islands in Greece where the yogurt was nowhere near as good. Stella will help you with any travel or sightseeing arrangements that you need to make.

The place is very quiet and only at 5 minutes walking from the harbour;
Very good full breakfast with plenty of choices all around the pool and the pool house
Excellent balance quality/price,
We where there last year and we'll come back for sure!

My wife and I stopped at the Margado Hotel in September 2010.
Prior to our visit Stella the owner/owners wife had been very helpful regarding ferry timetables and had gone out of her way to provide us with information.
She collected us from the ferry as promised and took us up the short but steep road to the hotel in her vanette.
What stunnig location. We had booked a superior room and this gave us a magnificent sea view and a large balcony along three sides of our spacious room.
The room was more than adequate, very clean and nicely decorated and like all Greek accommodation lacked slightly in drawer space for all of my wifes clothing. Nothing new there!! Everything in the room and bathroom worked well and was of good quality.
During our stay Stella and husband Nikos were available and helpful when asked questions.
The pool was a delight and the pool side furniture of good quality, although while we were there the wind blew quite strongly in the afternoons and curtailed sunbathing .
Breakfast around the pool was the normal self service but stocks of all food were replenished regularly.
Stella as always smiling, was on hand again to take us to the ferry on our departure day. We were sorry to leave, but perhaps we will return again, but hopefully in less than the 30 years since we had been to Sifnos prevoiusly.
For those staying at the Margado I recommend that you try the Absinth Retaurant which serves Greek food with a difference. Stella and Niko eat and drank there regularly.
i recommend Margado to anyone wishing a quite break in a good location.

We stayed at the Margado Hotel in the port town Kamares (kinda more like a bed and breakfast style place, not a traditional North American hotel). We paid 60 euro (although we did not reserve in advance, we booked through the Aegean Thesaurus Travel Agency near the Port). The owner was a super nice lady who came to pick us up from the Port. She spoke french very well (also English). Her place is a short but steep walk up a hill (but definitely walkable, we did it several times, it takes about 5 minutes). There is a beautiful pool. Our room was kinda small as was the bathroom and we had a partial ocean view (not of the beach though). There was free internet access. The breakfast was good. We were happy with our stay here. It was the lady owner who really made our stay special.
