We stayed here as part of a two centre package with Sunville with this as our second week.
The start could have been a disaster with bad weather preventing our ferry transfer but Sunville got us to the nearest port by road and Allison, the hotel's owner fixed, the rest with taxi boat to get our luggage to the hotel (too rough for normal mortals but our cases didn't mind) and jeep plus a short hike in (Allison sent a party over to make sure we found our way) to get us there! We were welcomed heartily and the friendly nature of the experience just got better from there. All the staff looked after us and the place's atmosphere means all the guests seemed sociable too - there were some many time returners here and we can understand why!
Allison has done a great job with the hotel rooms - they're simple, Greek style but comfortable, all very clean and well fitted out with white walls and marble floors. Our room (#8) was on the top floor and looked out over the bay with the mountains on either side. We're not beach fiends - preferring the sunny balcony - but sunbeds, umbrellas and beach towels are available. Rooms face east (the whole village does!) so you won't get afternoon sun or a sunset but its beautiful enough even without that. There's no pool but with the sea 5 metres from the front door, who needs one? The included breakfast (on B&B rates) is simple and we thought it was good value although there aren't any cooked options which some might regret. Still with the restaurants and cafes around going hungry isn't going to be your problem. Some reviews have pointed out that the hotel charges for Internet (although there bars and tavernas where its free) but on the other hand use of the safe and aircon is included in the room rate -something we've been charged for in plenty of places.
