My wife and I stayed at the Krinos Suites for 3 nights in June, 2012, to attend a wedding on Andros. What a delight. The room (a grand suite facing the sea) was spacious, very comfortable, up to date, and delightful. There is a small kitchenette and a very spacious balcony. The breakfast that the hotel serves is more than ample and simply delicious. We also had drinks and appetizers at the hotel two nights, and they were equally excellent. But the highlight of the hotel is the staff, most especially the owners Vasilli and Alexandra. They simply could not do enough for us and met every request with grace and style. I expected an excellent hotel from the correspondence we had had with them prior to arriving, and my expectation was exceeded. Two things to note: The hotel is directly across the street from a delightful beach. Also, note that there are a good many steps up to the entrance to the hotel, so those not used to climbing stairs daily should consider this hotel carefully. Otherwise, it is superb.
