When we booked Althea it all was a big incognito, firstly because the hotel was brand new, hardly no website with pictures, no info on the web to be found anywhere and first time on the whole on Karpathos! Travelling with children to a greek island also means to find a spot/hotel with a little less wind and as close as possible to the beach in order to let them go freely. We arrived and it was all a big: WOW! Ok the hotel is not spot on on the beach, but you have a beautiful view from the terraces and can stay in peace and quiet whenever everybody else is on the sandy beach of Ammoopi.... The host, Maria, welcomed us in the nicest possible way - customer oriented and with exceptional friendliness. The reception terrace is beautiful and a real treat to spend some time there just reading, having a nice chat with the hosts or taking your incredible breakfast (Maria makes huge breakfasts!!!)The rooms are elegant, modern complete with every possible comfort and the quality of the beds are incredible!! (I want one of those mattress too!!). A few minutes you walk downhill to the beach and really good restaurants which we all recommend. Things will surely have changed from summer 2013, but just in case: if you walk uphill to the hotel during darkness, make sure you have a torch! the road has no lights and is curvy and honestly a little dangerous with kids.
We definetly suggest you take a motorbike or car in Karpathos.There is plenty of parking space at the hotel.
We learnt to know Maria and her husband Mikalis a little during our stay and they were so nice to all of us that we can only summarize our stay by saying: Maria & Mikalis in our hearts! We'll surely be back.
