The hotel is really a cluster of rooms in a compound on the unpaved road along the shore in the remote village of St Georgio - which itself is really more of a scattering of new vacation homes, than a conventional Greek village. The rooms are very well equipped with everything you'd need for a short or long term stay. Magda the manager is friendly and helpful and has excellent English. There's free WiFi but the signal isn't very strong so you'll need to check your email from the lounge unless your room is very close. If you decide to eat at the hotel, the dining areas are comfortable and the food is excellent. The breakfast in particular was much more generous and delicious than we'd expected. The pool is clean and warm, no shortage of loungers, and umbrellas for shade. There are a couple of very small secluded sandy beaches a 5-minute walk away, and the water is crystal clear, the beach free from litter. The hotel provides beach towels, umbrellas and lightweight beach chairs free of charge.
There are only a couple of drawbacks we noticed - St Georgio IS remote, and unless you rent a car or scooter on arrival in Antiparos, you are trapped out there, and although there are a couple of waterfront tavernas and a bar about a 15-minute walk away, there's no shops of any kind, and you're dependent on getting a ride from Magda's husband whenever he's going into town. If you're not planning to get a car, be sure to stock up on groceries before going to the hotel so you can fix your own meals if that's what you want to do. The spotless and modern rooms are well equipped with a mini kitchen, plates, cutlery and more.
The other issue is noise, and for such a quiet remote place the hotel can be surprisingly noisy during the day. Voices really travel around the compound, the phone rings constantly, and when we were there there was construction going on. However the new rooms look really nice and comfortable so you may want to ask about them if you're considering staying here.
