This hotel is a must if you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing break!
The views from the pool and terrace are utterly incredible and stunning! The beauty of the place took my breath away!
The terrace is a lovely place to sit out at night, very romantic and private
The weather was gorgeous and the pool was refreshingly cold
We stayed half board and found the food to be lovely, just enough variety and we always left the restaurant feeling stuffed! There is a salad bar, bread bar and hot food stand with around 6/7 options including various meat/potatoes/fish/pasta.. All done greek style so you get a flavour for local food! The desserts were always different each night with a choice of 3 or 4
The staff are all very attentive and very helpful!
We had a terrace rather than sea view which was very pretty. As the hotel is on a hill we had a lot of steps to climb to get to the pool area and restaurant, this didn't bother us - just made us work up an appetite :)
There's not a lot of entertainment at this hotel but is perfect for people just wanting a quiet break!
We would recommend a trip into agios nikalaos for some shopping and its beaches! It's 13euros each way but has more of a busy atmosphere than elounder square
Only slight down side was the transfer from the airport taking between 2 and 3 hours! So be prepared! This gave us a good view of the island though
We returned home yesterday and are already planning our trip back next year! Would highly recommend this hotel!
