“Fantastic views, excellent rooms, but not perfect...yet!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

The views are fantastic, yes I know everyone else has said it, but I had to say it too! Our room was very well designed with its own character, plenty of space, and a truly brilliant shower room. The owner was very welcoming and genuinely eager to please.

Not perfect? Well, the hotel still isn't finished, which means you have to walk past unfinished rooms, bare concrete etc, to reach your own beautiful room. There's no lift, and the climb is really quite steep -- we were fine, but sadly I'd advise you to avoid this hotel if you are unfit or have any walking difficulties. The pool isn't finished, this will make a big difference because after climbing all those steps you need a swim!

Breakfast was served on our own balcony, it was a delicious breakfast served with great charm and style. Having said that, not everyone wants a "room service" breakfast. There's no reception and no phone, so when you want your breakfast you just have to go out onto your balcony and shout or find someone. It was a very quiet time when we were there so we didn't have to wait long (only while they cooked the fresh eggs, which was worth waiting!), but at busy times I'm not sure how well this system would work. In general I'd prefer the option of a breakfast room. Also there was no shade on our balcony (except a too-small umbrella), it was OK in late September but it would be too hot to sit there for breakfast in the summer.

Our other issue was the cats. They were charming, especially the little kitten. But I don't like cats in the bedroom. This was a real problem, because the french doors open directly from the bedroom onto the balcony where the cats sit, and the moment you opened the doors, the cats were inside the room. Basically we couldn't sit inside or outside the room with the french doors open, otherwise the cats would be on the bed. So we had to keep the doors closed all the time (they can be opened a crack to let air in, but you really want to fling them wide open!), and every time we went in or out we had to move quickly to stop the cats coming in. This would not be an issue for cat-lovers, but even if someone is are used to having their own cats in the bedroom at home, they might not be comfortable with strange cats. One solution would be a proper sliding flyscreen, the kind that often comes with french doors; so you can open the doors, close the flyscreen, the cats stay out...and so do the mosquitos! I know this would cost money, but it would be worth it -- at least as far as we're concerned. Because of this issue, I would not want to stay here for more than one night. But maybe we were just unlucky?

I'm sorry if this all sounds very negative, because we genuinely loved the hotel and all the lovely little design touches. But I hope it will help people to make up their minds, especially as the hotel has so many glowing reviews already!

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The view and location to everything in Parga center was ideal. We enjoyed our breakfast daily overlooking the amazing sea view. The owner was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Always available to provide us with any information we requested. We truly enjoyed our stay in Parga!!

So, two weeks here - I wish it could've been two months.
The rooms are cool in every sense of that word, each with its own unique charm. The view nothing short of stunning (imagine living in a postcard) and the atmosphere at the hotel is classy yet still easy-going. The staff is helpful, friendly and do seem genuinely happy to see you.
My hearty recommendations to anyone seeking quality with a smile on its face.

I can only mirror what previous guests have said in that this hotel is the best in Parga. The view is the best you will get, the rooms are all individual and well presented, with a little bit of luxury. This is the kind of place where you want to spend time in your room, on the terrace, just chilling with a drink and taking in the view not somewhere to just shower and sleep.

The staff work really hard and the breakfast served on the balcony is a real pleasure as you can spend a leisurely hour eating and taking your time to get ready rather than have to rush to a buffet breakfast with other people.

Thank you Chris for sharing your vision of how the hotel will look when complete with the extra rooms, infinity pool and bar, it will be amazing and we will definately return.

Only downside is the climb up the hill and the stairs as we were usually dripping wet when we got to the top in the heat! We will return when you have your glass lift installed!

Romantic, peaceful and awesome hotel.

Really nice hotel. Every room has its own design, we stayed at the Coral suite. Beautiful view from the balcony!!! Our room was very nice, with some beautiful details. I’ve checked even some other rooms, they are all extremely beautiful and tasteful. Breakfast was simple, but nice, it was served every morning by hotel staff at our balcony. As I said the view is amazing, but to be able to enjoy this beautiful view you will have first to go up for many stairs, for us it was not a big problem, but I can think that it might be a problem for some people. Bu Parga in general located on hills so I guess them who travels to Parga are prepared for some workout. I could easily recommend this hotel for anyone who are looking for a nice and relaxing stay in beautiful Parga.

The most beautiful views of parga bay, great bathroom, great bed, excellent cleaniness of the room, breakfast in room! We stayed in the coral suite which even though is one of the smallest,it has plenty of space including a hidden kitchen, and a great view of the balcony. Very sensible mini bar prices. The owner and the staff are smiling and friendly.The owner helped us with anything we needed during our stay, which was highly appreciated.
The only drawback is that the hotel is not yet fully finished, there's no elevator and you have to climb up 95 steps if you 're staying at the top floor. For us, it was not a problem, but it could be in the heat of the summer, or if you have walking difficulties. You are compensated with the view though. All in all it was a great stay, and we would book it again.

We stayed at Irida in the middle of september. We stayed there for one week but could have stayed for a very long time! The concept with different rooms and themes is creative, special and beautiful. We had our son with us (9 months old) and it was not a problem for the owner/hotel to offer us a babybed.
Irida is an experience in it self and ending the day sitting in lounge chairs outside, with candles and a magnificent view is lovely. If we ever go to Parga again there is no doubt about which hotel we will book!
