Stayed in May 2013. Like the previous reviewer had problems with my reservation. I initially booked for one night. A week later I was contacted by the hotel to say they had made a mistake on their website reservations, and there was now a 3 night minimum. This didn't fit with my travel plans and I had already pre paid. After much argument - on email and on the phone - only by threatening to contact the Greek Tourist Ministry was my original Reservation honoured. But very grumpily and reluctantly.
Hotel itself has great views over the bay and the room/bathroom are very nicely decorated.
Not the cleanest. Light fittings are very dusty, as are tops of pictures etc. Not what I expect from a 4-Star.
I felt that I was interrupting staff, who would have been much happier without any guests to spoilt their day (it is very lovely on top of a hill in the sunshine)
Gym - opens at 10am (not sure why so late, as its in the basement. Staff not sure either, which about sums it up)
Wi-Fi - Not working.
Cafe Latte - charged to your room at extra cost if you have it during breakfast. But American coffee with hot milk is included and free. Bizarre.
Breakfast doesn't start until 9am which was very late for me (but notices at reception say 8:30am). Again another argument with reluctant staff.
Experience was not great, which is a real shame as the location and hotel itself has so much potential.
